Hi all - looking for some input and guidance. I'm running Philly in 3 weeks, and would like to run Tampa as well (February 10th, 11 weeks later). I've constructed an 11 week plan, based on one of the ING marathon training schedules. The plan is to recover with a reverse taper for 2-3 weeks after Philly, train at higher mileage for 5 or 6 weeks, and then taper for Tampa.<br><br>
This has me peaking at 70 mpw, slightly higher than my previous plan (I used a 16 week training program, peaked at 66 mpw, and have had plenty in the bank - enough to run a negative split 23 mile LR).<br><br><img alt="" src="http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j153/divaleh/Running/marytrain.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
Any and all input is appreciated!<br><br>
Thanks!

Maybe you've already seen this, but I have the book "Advanced Marathoning" by Pfitzinger which has training plans for multiple marathons. One of his plans peaks at 70 mpw. It might be worth it to stop by a Borders and browse through it to see if you like those programs, too.

Would you believe that I actually just realized that I own it? And to think of all the work I put into coming up with the other training schedule <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Apparently, I need to reorganize my bookcases.

I've had some success with the Pfitz "4 weeks inbetween marathons." Its a great starting point. If you use it, I suggest continuing to listen to your body for signs of fatigue and consider extra rest, if needed.<br><br>
Good luck on your quest!
