Marathons, recovery, swim and training advice

So I just completed the Trinidad and Tobago Marathon today. Six hours 19 mins. This may sound like a terrible time to a normal marathon runner but given the fact that I really did not start marathon training until the last two months it was not a bad effort. Especially since my last long run practice took seven and a half hours. I will admit however that I did not do a raw diet today and stuck with vegan cliff packs for the race and cooked vegan foods after. (I did have loads of coconut water) However I did my best to stay 811 raw during most of my training for the last two months. I will probably have to pay the price of acne soon but am committed to getting back on track. Also my next fitness goals are a 2500 meter open water swim in September and a half marathon in October. I was wondering how long should I not exercise to recover from this marathon and what training should I do to make the swim in less than 1 hour and the half marathon in two hours. If there are any raw vegan athletes that are interested in visiting Trinidad and participating in a team for either event let me know.

 

Much love.

I would definitely recommend active recovery so the lactic acid buildup in your sytem and flow better and you run the next marathon even faster each time!

 

Walking is one of the best activities for circulation and in no doubt help you the most. Just taking a walk to your nearby library or grocery store for 60 min a day for a week is enough. Slowly, add some running again to your training, say adding 5 more minutes every day.

 

And I completely agree with Victor here, =)
