So I’m not sure if I’m overdoing it, but the plan for this month are 2 half marathons: One Nov 15th the other Nov 28th.
December I might just do a local Xmas 5k.
January I have two half scheduled: Disney half on Jan 10th and Naples half (DIVA FE!) on Jan 17th.
So the next big question is should I do the full on Jan 31st or do the half?
I really want to do to the full and do the longer runs (16-22) again in nice weather, but I was going to try to run 16 this morning and only did 10.
I honestly felt like a loser b/c I didn’t do what I had told my body to do. I had eaten enough carbs last night for a 16 mile run, and I stopped after 10.
I wore my new Mizunos and the ball of my feet was aching a bit after mile 7 b/c of the getting used to the Newton shoes. http://www.newtonrunning.com
So I guess I’m just going to play it by ear and how my body feels. Try to train for the full, but take it one week at a time. The last thing that I want is to be injured. I am adding speed work which is a change for me. I am keeping my mileage the same and I am only upping it by 10% or less.
Now I can use next week’s half as a training run. I do not plan on racing it and I am not worried about my time. If I finish in 2:30 that’s fine with me. If I finish in 2:45 that’s also fine with me. Kelle is running and I might wait for her since I know she’s been having issues with her shins.
The Space Coast half is one that I would like to race or try to since I heard that the course is really nice. We’ll see. I haven’t even registered for that half yet.
One day at a time. One half at a time.
On a better note I talked to Antonella today on the phone! I love my little godchild!!!
