    Hello – I am planning to Run Augusta 70.3 (September) in 2023 and then my first full marathon (Disney) the first week of January 2024.

    Augusta is September 24th, but with Marathon training, I would need to start the plan September 3rd. What is the recommendation for training blocks? Do I drop the first 3 weeks of the Marathon training plan completely? If so, do I risk shooting myself in the foot for the marathon training by missing the first big block which includes a nearly 3 hour run?

    Marathon goal is to finish, but I would like to finish well and not just survive.

    Thanks in advance!

    With the fitness you will have built from your 70.3 training you can start the marathon plan a few weeks in. Be sure to take 1-2 weeks active recovery after Augusta and then start your marathon focused plan.
