I am working with a coach and training through this race for the London marathon (in April). My workouts include some kind of speed session, either fartlek or tempo, a couple days of easier effort runs and double runs on some days, along with a long run, which can have pace changes or a steady pace on different terrain. I also always have strength training at minimum once a week.
