Try this training plan (if time allows you) .... it is very good:

however, you need to do this using the polarized training technique (in a nutshell, use a heart rate monitor (or powermeter), and try and stay in zone 2 for as much as you can .... i.e. take it easy

Can't be as bad as Dumoulin a few years ago, but they cut the camera, or Radcliffe in a road race.

Last weekend I ran the North Coast Ultra - 110km from Barnstaple to Minehead. It was without doubt the hardest thing I've ever done to myself. Race report below:

I would try to add some flexibility to your date for doing this. March can have widely different types of weather. Think this year nearly ideal, think 2018 beast from the East. If the weather is going to be really bad change the date.
