I've decided to write off Monday's fast and I will change my days this week to Wednesday and Friday!
Has anyone else been in this situation?

Definitely the right decision not to fast afterwards, your body will be needing to recover from all that. Don't even worry if you don't get 2 fasts in this week, I'm sure the marathon will help towards your calorie deficit, and it is only one week afterall. There's always next week!
Come Fast With Me my 5:2 diet blog
I don't eat Mondays or Thursdays
My method: 5:2 Liquid only 16:8 on non-fast days
I'm aiming for a time of 2 1/2 hours.
I'm only left with aching thighs today, hopefully back out for a recovery jog tomorrow on my fast day
I do parkrun every Saturday and I'm always absolutly shattered for the rest of the day, more so than when I do longer training runs.
I wouldn't want to fast after such an exertion. I always thought that the body needs protien so that muscles can repair and recover.
Good luck with the half marathon in June Melanie, let us know how the training's going.
