Moving on. Reading the latest edition of Runner's World has stoked the 'I want to run a marathon' fire. Especially because there is a marathon plan in there
Portland marathon. I have already pretty much done the first week two weeks ago so could jump in on week two and make the magic happen.
1) As mentioned (whined about?) before our lives are kind of uncertain right now so committing to something so far in the future might be setting myself up for failure (failure= not being able to actually run this)
2) This race is pricey for #1 to happen, plus I would be super sad.
3) I have this fear of getting injured and throwing off my 30 before 30 goal. (and would Portland count for two 1/2s, one 1/2, no 1/2, hmmmm?)
I think I will start the training program since it has hills, speed, easy days all the things that would be good for me. Plus one of my goals has been to increase my mileage and this training plan would for sure do that. And see what the future brings. Maybe the Portland marathon, maybe some other one, but for sure I will be increasing my long runs, working on speed, and hopefully be less of a baby about hills (I am a dreamer).
Plan for the week:
Monday: am: walk/ pm zumba
Tuesday: am 3 mi easy pm muscle pump
Wednesday: am 6 mi hills/zumba
Thursday: am walk/ pm muscle pump (I am skeptical too that this will happen)
Friday: am 6 mi easy/ pm fun!
Saturday: am 3mi/ pm maybe zumba
Sunday: am 9 mi/ pm maybe yoga
