How long will it take to see the benefits of running training?

As a rule it takes at least 10-14 days for your body to adapt to a training stimulus so don’t expect to see improvements overnight! The trick is not to force fitness, let it come to you. Gains in fitness take time so be patient and enjoy the journey.

I want to follow a published 16 week training plan for the London Marathon. Currently I run long runs of 12 to 16 miles at weekends. All the plans start with much shorter long runs (6-8 miles). Should I reduce my long runs when I start the plan or carry on until the plan catches up with me?
