|just get me to the finish !!!|
Ahh.. a flat course and I can do sub 1:45... thinking about signing up for a local half, but it is Memorial Day weekend - too hot maybe? And I don't know my plans for Memorial Day yet... kind of wish it wasn't a holiday weekend. The Oddyssey one? (for anyone local - thoughts?) I think I'll just do it since my goal for 2011 was run the fastest half marathon that I can. Then I will have 3+ tries to do it. My main race is the Philly Distance Run in September for my half marathon challenge and I plan to run the Philly Half in November too.
Should I sign up for a marathon on May 15? 2 weeks after Broad Street? That's 7 weeks away and in 3 weeks is the first tri I'm doing and then June 26 is the Olympic distance tri. Can I train hard enough to do a marathon at a quality time? Probably not.. focus on the half and Oly tri... but it's crossed my mind a couple of times.
I feel decent today. I didn't get enough sleep last night and got up to go swimming. I kind of knew I should rest but wanted to go since I'm only swimming twice a week now (spin class the 3rd day). I am TIRED and will probably nap! I am also ready to eat house today. I'm always hungry the day after a race or hard long run. I think I am going to pass on the group speedwork tomorrow and do an easy run and maybe try for the tempo with the group on Thursday depending how I feel.
What does your week after the race look like training wise?
