I agree.... if the first is a training run (slow pace) - the two races sound fine.

In October I did two half marathons back to back, and one of them was in San Francisco. Because I treated both as training runs, I had no problems.

I know you can do it!

Yes, that graph is horrifying, LOL.

As long as you run it as a training run, you should be OK. That may mean walking all or most of the hill.

I am planning to run the Royal Parks Half Marathon again on Oct 12, and i would really like to do pretty well better than in 2012.
There is another race i would like to do 2 weeks before Paris-Versailles: 16 k. i would normally think it's probably fine as a last training run, and i don't care so much about the time, but it has a pretty huge hill about 390 feet over 2 k. the graph is just horrifying
www.parisversailles.com/lgc_plan.php
but if i'm in shape and careful it seems to me i should be ok. what do the people who've run consecutive or at least close races think?
they're both the month before my 63rd birthday if that's relevant.
thanks.
