Finished 1 marathon, another in 32 days...

I just finished a marathon this past Sunday (10/10).  It was my second of the year an my third overall.  I am on the verge of signing up for another one on 11/14.  That would be five weeks between marathons.  I have the idea that there is really no need for any long runs (anyting over 15 miles) between now and then.  I am feeling maybe get about 5-8 miles of easy running in the week and up to 12 or so the next week.  I am thinking of running half-distance at once the following week and then take it easy with a handful of 3-5 mile runs with a few at marathon pace.  Should I be ok?  Any suggestions?  Oh, I run about 240lbs.
