Training Advice for running the Kepler Challenge

Hi Gary,
Did the Rotorua Marathon in 3hr 4min 20s just missing out on a sub 3hr, maybe next year. Have a couple of questions for you, if thats ok thanks.

1. My next race will be the Kepler Challenge in early december, which is 60km, how long should I rest before starting trainning?

2. If I do one long run a week, would that maintain my fitness level?

3. Is there anything else I should do for this longer distance, compeard to a marathon?

4.How much fitness would I lose if I took a month off, and how long would it take to regain, at my age 52.

Thanks for any information you can supply. Regards Kevin.
