Would it surprise you to know that I already have my next half-marathon planned, and the training plan printed out?
Yah, me either.
Yesterday when we were struggling through miles 10-13, telling each other to embrace the suck, I mentally swore off half marathons. What happened, you ask? My freakin’ pride. It get’s in the way sometimes. I can not have that Women’s Half Marathon conquer me. C-A-N’-T.
This morning as I was talking to Carolyn about possibly running another half. We talked about needing/wanting a longer training plan. We thought 16 weeks would be good. 16 weeks gives us a few times to miss runs, whereas, 12 weeks doesn’t. She travels, I’m drowning in school; We will need those extra weeks, I’m sure. I also thought this would give us a few weeks break, maybe a month. wrong. The half is on March 20th. 16 weeks of training would begin on November 29th, as in, next Monday. OMG readers, that is soon.
Note: I’m not saying Carolyn is doing the half. She thinks I’m crazy too. We did talk about it briefly this morning though.
What am I doing to myself? This is bonkers. emphasis on bonkers.
So, I present to you, my readers, (I won’t even joke about all 2 of you, because everyone uses that joke).. My new training plan. training. (Yeah, it won’t let me upload the document, or I just don’t know how to do it right. It’s probably the latter. ) PS.THE DOCUMENT IS UPSIDE DOWN. MY SCANNER WAS BEING UNRULY THIS MORNING.
I suppose you would also like to know which half I plan on running. http://www.floridabeachhalfathon.com
This was the half I ran for my first ever half. You can read the report, here. Or, you can just look @ the splits:
Kudos to you if you are still reading this really long, and crazy entry.
I came home today and did 2 easy miles (19:28, 9:38 pace) on the treadmill. I wanted to see how my legs felt. I was actually pleased that running didn’t hurt. Walking, and sitting, well, that’s another story.
Good Night, Ya’ll. I have homework to attend to.
