Marathon training

I need some real help with my training.  I have run two Marathons (4hr 01mn) and (3hr 56mn) and 3 or 4 half marathons.  Now during my training runs my legs don't want to run for more then 14 miles and start cramping up around 8 miles. I have my third marathon in two weeks and am I afraid I can't finish it. Anything I can do?

    Joane, I tried to play it, but there was nothing clickable on the page to start the video.

    You might notice that everything this person posts is a link to a 'cool video.' I'd be careful about clinking those links.

    The site the links point to appears to be legitimate.  The organization looks like it is based in England.

     

    "Triathlon Research’s Mission: An organization dedicated to comprehensive research, distillation, and distribution of the best information for the world of high performance Triathlon Training."

     

    The site has articles from various well-known athletes: Jeff Galloway, Mark Allen, Bobby McGee.  It is unclear whether the information was posted with permission or not.  Also the writing is not the best -  the grammar tends to leave a little to be desired.

    I'm sorry the last time I watched it It was still clickable I don't know what happened. I didn't mean to spam or something I just wanted to share Information I'm sorry.  I would lessen it or if you don't like I could just erase it Good Luck on your training Have a safe day
