Huh....... did that makes sense. Basically run hard until you puke. That is my interpretation at least.
So this article has been rolling around in the vast void of a brain of mine and got me thinking- always a dangerous thing- maybe I should try this. Not really get a DNF, that would mean no medal and that would be tragic, but run as hard as I can for as long as I can with the realization that I might not be able to run the whole way, my legs will revolt and I will not be super awesome feeling at the end. I have a little turkey trot action coming up on Saturday.
It is a point to point which I usually tend to do better at for some reason- mentally I think I just like them better. So I guess my goal for this half is to run as hard as I can for as long as I can. That means trying to keep the mile times in the 8s. Something I am not comfortable doing so I will be super uncomfortable at this turkey trot. And not just because I ate my body weight in stuffing and mashed potatoes and am trying to waddle my way through 13.1 miles.
So my goal for the Schaumburg half marathon = run as hard as I can for as long as I possibly can and know that most likely this will result in the last few miles being run/walked with a side of hissy fit. Then go home and eat leftovers.
Is this a crazy plan?
Any bets how many miles I make it before wipe out?
What is your favorite T-giving food? I love stuffing with a fiery passion.
