I am training for the Marine Corps Marathon and my legs are plain and simply worn out.  Whenever i do training runs they are tired and feel stiff.  I have tried replacing running with indoor spinning classes.  This reduces the stress on the legs.  I can do this without too much effort.  None the less, when I get back on the roads to run, they are tired.  Does this mean I should back off of running totally and just rest for three or four days?

I expect to do well in the marathon so I need to be strong.

suggestions from veteran runners appreciated.

thanks,
