Topic - 4 weeks to train for a Marathon?

Run_Ross_Run - on 06 Nov 2012
Hi.

So I've just entered a local event and managed to get the Trail Marathon route (waymarked 26mile) and not the Ultra. Event date is 2nd week in December and I would like to get a good (for me) time for it, somewhere between 4 half to 5 hours

I run quite a bit, about 1-2 times a week on average, and mix up road running with trail/mountain running.

10k flat time is around 48 mins and I did a 10k mountain run yesterday in just under the hour (man flu equiped).

Furthest I've run is around 15/16km a while back.

Gear wise I'm fine and I do a lot of mountaineering so weather doesn't bother me.

So the question is do you think that 4 weeks is long enough to train and condition my body for the event.

Any training tips greatley appreciated


Thanks.

Darren
