Yup, I’m doing it again tonight- parsnip fries a la Oh She Glows. They are currently cooking in the oven. I can’t wait…YUMMMM!
ANYWAY, my training dilemma…SO. I signed up for the Disney Princess Half Marathon on February 27th. I had planned it months ago- booked the hotel room, the flight, etc. BUT, in all honesty, I feel there is NO WAY I will be ready for it. NO WAY. The longest run I’ve done since my first half marathon in November was 8 miles in Florida.
That pic was from today’s four miler. Right, so enough pictures of me and back to the subject: I am seriously concerned that I will be undertrained for this half marathon. Even if I can manage one long run (the longest I feel I need to do is ten probably) per week, I guess on the weekend, I still don’t really feel like it’s enough…here are the factors that are contributing to my lack of ability to train as much as I feel I needed to:
2. Work work work. Not to complain (although what I am about to say will certainly resemble that) but I have a full time job and a part time job which is two nights a week and more for preparation. Needless to say, I am busy!
Not running outside stinks. And it definitely impedes my ability to do long runs. I miss my loop!
Anyway, that’s my dilemma. I think I am going to just do my best and enjoy the race! It will be fun! I don’t need to PR every race. This race will be a blast no matter what…it is in Disney World, after all!
Have you ever had a similar “training dilemma?”
