I’m looking to run my second marathon, in 2019, so I have plenty of time to train. I had ankle surgery in 2017 and have been cleared to run. I was hoping however to build in more rest days to lessen the strain on my ankle. I used a 20-week plan before that worked great but it generally has six days of running a week. Would the training benefits/efficacy be similar if I spread out each day of the plan over 40 weeks instead (so for every week of the original plan I would end up taking two weeks to do it)? I was thinking I could do low impact cardio on the new off-running days (bike, elliptical). Any suggestions/insight would be much appreciated! Scott
