I may or may not have told you about a marathon I am doing in a few weeks. Like September 29th – 9 weeks away!
I did the half last year. I really, really wanted to do the full marathon but decided that 2 half marathons in a weekend were going to be challenge enough. (I did a half marathon the day before this one) This race helped cement my desire to put myself to the ultramarathon test.
|I don’t think I can pose and look cool at any race.|
Since I got my running mojo back, I gathered up a free Runners World Smart Coach plan and really hope to not die during this race. I know that 9 weeks isn’t a long time to really prepare for a race after such a long time off… but that is why I am giving 12min/mi a shot. I am using the plan below as a rough draft plan. There is a good chance I won’t be doing speedwork or tempos, but that’s just me being lazy.
|The mileage plan.|
The Marathon distance scares me. Maybe because it’s a bordering running line between fun and serious training/running. I run all distances for fun, but a marathon for fun? That is SO scary to me.
|Fave pic, like, ever!|
So, I am going to attempt a fun marathon with 9 weeks of training. I had fun at the half last year. I mean, there was WINE on the course. How could I NOT have fun combining 2 of my favorite things again this year?
|Running & Drinking – YES!|
If there could be wine at all water stops…
