The Brighton Marathon is a relatively new event. It was set up in 2010 and since then has grown into a sell out event with over 9,000 people taking part every year. In just three years it's become one of the largest marathons in the UK and has raised over £7.5m for charity.
I think my training would be much easier if the week had 8 days; it would be so much easier to do all those decent workouts and still have plenty of time for recovery. But of course, that's kind of the point of my training: you keep a certain amount of pressure on the system, enough to get adaptations but mellow enough to allow recovery.
