It’s been so long since I’ve actually trained for a race that it almost feels like I am starting from scratch…except I kind of know what I’m really in for!
The Brooklyn Half is coming up on May 17th. I have only run this race once– in 2009! It seems like so long ago. Tomorrow I have 7 miles on the schedule–rain or shine! If I add a mile a week until May 17th, I’ll have a solid 11 miles under my belt before the race. I’m planning to do at least one easy or tempo run a week and one night of speed work a week as well.
Adding to that, I also have this little race to prepare for:
Congratulations, Melissa! You’re in.
Man! The pressure is on!
Just for kicks, I’m also considering doing my first tri. The Escape to Miami looks like fun and I have some friends doing. Plus, any excuse to go to Miami. Joe’s Stone Crab how I love thee. The question is Sprint or Olympic? I think I could do the sprint no problem. However, it’s tempting to push myself a little bit more and try the olympic length. That said, I’m not sure where I would swim. I also don’t know if I want any to have to worry about really training for anything other than the marathon. I have to decide soon, so I’ll let you know what happens!
