As soon as I told myself that I wouldn't follow a schedule for two months, I've found myself yearning to run. I've stuck true to the 20-25 miles per week approach for now, but lately I cannot seem to read enough on running. I google races, read forums, read blogs, google training plans, etc. I'm so excited about running the NYC Marathon and I'm ready to begin training for it. It's 30 weeks away ...
I found a half marathon today that is 5 weeks before NYC. I think this is perfect. It's not too close to NYC, so I can actually RACE the half and not worry about not recovering in enough time. But, still that's 25 weeks away, so I have some time.
Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying sleeping in on the weekends and not stressing about getting in my miles but I'm getting very anxious!!
I'm feeling ambitious today. I'm thinking a 1:33 for the Half Marathon and a 3:20-3:25 for NYC.
