After 2 kids and an extra 50 lbs, I decided I didn't want to hate my bod any more. C25K, 10k, 10 miler, Half Marathon, 20 miler, Marathon. All in 2 years.
This year I will:
1. Trump last years 2 marathons
2. Learn to swim (efficiently) and complete a triathlon
3. Clean up my diet and maintain my weight
Join me while I do this awesome stuff.
I’ve been training hard. The 50k is in exactly 1 freaking week. I think I’m going to make a shirt that says “I can’t believe I’m actually doing this!!”.
It’s impossible to catch up on everyone but I’m going to try! Anyone commit to anything insane lately?! :)
I signed up for a FREAKING 50 miler. Can we say” next level”?? Every single time I think about this, my heart jumps a bit and I seriously question my sanity. What am I thinking? I can just run a marathon and then turn around at the end and run back to the beginning? And be totally fine? No biggie?!
Sheeets…this is getting intense. I love it!!!
What kind of training do you suggest? 5/6 runs a week? Back to backs every week?? Length of training? Crosstraining? Speedwork?
I just PRed a marathon a week and a half ago, so I’m pretty well trained so far. Where to begin?
I do SOOOOO much better during training if I have a set sched but I’m not sure where exactly to begin!
Please and thank you for any advice!
