So a while back while I was going through my “social” gmail account (The account which I don’t put on my business card *snaps fingers and points), I was doing my usual junk mail clean out. The following read on the next e-mail:
“TCS New York City Marath.”
Junk. But before I went on to the next e-mail, I slowly scanned over to the subject line…
“The 2016 TCS New York City Marathon: You’re In!”
Second Feeling: Uh, I barely ran 13.1. How am I going survive 26.2? For a good week I was actually a bit down. No joke. Even during my last half, I didn’t actually train. And boy was that 2 months after terrible. I was pretty much sidelined due to developing plantar fasciitis. So I suppose I need to change it up this time.
Step 1) Run base miles.
The thing that is really freaking me out is getting injured during training. I feel raising my mileage before the actual training would be beneficial. The only thing I need to do is not push the pace, which is pretty hard for me as a former sprinter.
Try to set up something to be accountable!
I suppose this is where this blog comes back into play. In future posts (yes, there will be more posts!), I’ll throw in what I actually ran, and what my game plan is more the week. I was thinking of just posting a weekly round up but, hey I think this will force me into some kind of routine.
November 6 is still a bit of a ways out there. Yet, I have a feeling it’s just going to sneak up on me. Guess I better just lace up and hit the road.
