Checking out the latest issue of Running Times (December 2001), I don't see a schedule for training between proximate marathons.
What is in the issue is a reply to a letter to the editor, with the reply written by Pete Pfitzinger, stating that the "minimum weekly training mileage to achieve reasonable performance" is 55 mpw for the marathon. Optimal training requires 70-100 mpw.
An article by the same author (Pete Pfitzinger), entitled "Winter Training -- Summer Success" gives six tips to "train hard and safely through the winter":
1 Take advantage of good weather
2 Use a treadmill when necessary
3 Incorporate cross training
4 Shorten your stride on snow and ice
5 Remember to drink
6 Be creative (i.e., find ways to keep training even under difficult winter circumstances)
My own experience is that winter is the most dangerous time for injuries, so be sure to start all runs slowly until your body warms up.
