"I am still going strong on my schedule one training... The question I have is, Should I really spend 29 weeks worth of training for my first marathon, or should I skip over to schedule two?...
On my knee, it's starting to bother me after the runs. I iced it down yesterday and that seemed to help. But if I'm having to ice my knee down after only 4 miles, I'm afraid where I'll be weeks from now."
Don't rush your training. Marathon running is a lifetime sport. The first part of the training schedule is designed to help you build up your endurance and minimize injury.
I get the feeling you are improvising on your schedule, thus having the problems you are currently experiencing.
