Guys, I signed up to run three marathons in five weeks. I'm not sure if it sounds better if I say three in three months but it doesn't change the timeline either way.
That actually sounds exactly like me. Biting off more than I can chew.
Then I started having anxiety about training for them. What do I do? How do I get enough mileage on my legs? Should I drop them and just run a 50? I mean, that's kind of what I want to be doing but I'm too afraid I'll break my running again. But maybe I just want to run a 50 because I KNOW i can train for that and finish but I don't KNOW that I can train for a marathon and get fast(er).
This still sounds like me, right?
Then I decided that what I should do is use a 50 mile plan to train for these races because I'll get used to running a lot of miles, recovering, repeat. What could go wrong?
Yep. Seems like Liz Logic. I'm committed to this course of action.
Then I volunteered to lead a pace group for my club's last training run before Brooklyn. I'm not social and barely run with my club.
I legit have no idea why I did that.
I also found a track club. I'm planning on doing my speed work with them on Tuesdays. I should start to plug in to my local scene more, right? Which made me decide to start linking up with this other club that does tempo runs through the Lower East Side. They are fast and pretty and I have no business running with them but I think I'm going to try.
It's like I don't even know who I am.
Then my RB signed up for the speed series in Prospect Park that meets every other Wednesday in the summer. This won't fit into my schedule this year but my club does Form Runs there every Wednesday night so I'm going to go to that and meet my RB after she's done racing.
Why am I joining all these strangers doing things?
