How many marathons are healthy? Claudette 10/16/05 2:16:11 PM ET
Hi. This question hasn't worth unless kind answers come in plenitude and w/ speed. I did the Chicago marathon a week ago. I did the Knoxville marathon in March. I'm going to do the Seattle marathon around November 27th. So here's the thing. I happen to be in Ann Arbor, MI right now; and am soon planning a trip to Detroit, just to see the city. But a buddy of a pal, has told me that there's still time to register for the Detroit marathon next Sunday (two weeks following my last one). As far as I know I'm in good health, probably great health when compared to the world or the U.S. at large. So are there any at least semi-expert judgments out there, which state that four marathons in a year is healthy? Also, is running one only two weeks following a previous marathon healthy? Gonna need this information asap, as registration's running out, or going up another 20$ due to absolute last-minute-edness. If I find what you may remark helpful, I give you much appreciation my brothers and sisters. Later.
