I doubt anyone comes back here to read lol but I felt I should throw out a quick update since it has been FORE----EVER since I posted anything.
I am about 3 weeks out from the Las Vegas Marathon. My schedule has been super crazy as you can see by the frequency of my blog posts. So my training has taken a bit of a hit as well.
I originally planned to hit a 24-26 mile run somewhere in training but I gave up on that. I have a 20 mile run that I need to throw down before I start to taper so I really hope my overall fitness will get me through the last six miles at the marathon. Also, I don’t know if my goal of 3:30 is still obtainable but I’m going to give it all I have. I haven’t been able to throw in enough interval training and speed work to feel confident about holding an 8min pace for 26 miles. Then again I’ve surprised myself in the past so it all depends on how my body is feeling at the start line.
I’m very sorry to my blogging pals if I’ve missed important events. My schedule will calm down eventually and I’ll get back to reading and writing in the blog world.
Any suggestions on preparing mentally when you’re not 100% ready for a race? Do you change your race goals or just go after it and see what happens??
Have a great weekend!
