What I would suggest. Train to run.

You would be well served to check out this page: http://www.runnersworld.com/subtopic...-258-0,00.html

Seriously though, don't do CFE. At all.
Thanks for the link, I bookmarked it. If you don't mind me asking, why don't you like CFE? I've never trained for a marathon, but I used to CFE to lower my 3 mile run for the USMC PFT, and my 5K went from 22:33 to 18:53. Certainly nothing spectacular, but I took nearly 4 minutes in about 3 months. I realize that's a comparatively short distance, but what is the shortcoming of CFE for longer distances?
