    I am planning my 2021 season currently. As of right now, I have 3 main races planned:

    Virtual HM 3/27
    US Air Force Marathon 9/17
    ORRRC Turkey Trot 5 Miler 11/25

    I am starting the level 1 HM plan today to end on 3/27. The Full marathon level 1 plan will begin 5/16/2021. The current plan is to start the 10K plan on week 3 after the Marathon with intensity variation for the first week or two depending on how I feel.

    My question is in reference to the 7 weeks between the half and full plan. I originally thought about doing the first 7 weeks of the Maintenance plan as an off season. However, I am now wondering if it would be better to add weeks 1-7 of the Marathon plan as an additional base for the marathon training.

    Any suggestions?

    Since the Marathon plan is 18 weeks long, there is some flexibility in extending it. I’d take a week off after the HM plan, then repeat the first 6 weeks of the Marathon plan. I agree that’s a slightly better choice than the Maintenance plan, especially since it’s just the Level 1 plan.




    Thanks for the advice
