@doyoueventribro , I trust you carefully track your beers and shots during your golf rounds?
I'm no mathematician, but I believe that means you are running in mid August. May I suggest a dial-your-distance trail ultra in Holly, MI on July 18th.......... Sounds like a perfect tune up, supported, with nutrition and hydration every 4.167 miles, and lots of drunk people around you so that you can jump right in once you decide your training is complete.
A road marathon training plan is familiar and comforting, but why not try practicing what will benefit you the most for a trail Ultra right from day 1 Run at an easy pace, and even with that, walk a minute or 2 every 10 or 15 from the very start of every long run. Plus powerwall all steep hills till you see the.top Extending your time on your feet for these runs, and practicing nutrition exactly as you will try to race of course. You know the long feeding concepts already, and as said above, the 20 hours with a run walk boils down to nutrition primarily. See how the forced walk breaks reduce your overall stress accumulation. You will really know your time on feet potential using the mandatory run walk for both your suggested long back to backs. This will help you decide as well as reducing the injury potential since you've had your bad setback.
