So I am needing a little advice from my fellow marathon running/blogging buddies.
I registered for a marathon back in September, and the race is Next Sunday, the 15Th. I was training for it and doing fine until December came. I didn't train so well that month and found myself doubting that I could do it. I ran a 14 mile run in Dec and then kind of slacked until January. I did not pick up where I left off, I started at mile 10. So today I ran 14 and I felt pretty good considering the fact that the wind was trying to blow me over. So this is where I need some advice..... I want to go ahead and run the Marathon next Sunday.
It is called "The Last Chance for Boston" marathon, and it is in Dublin, Oh. It's only about 3 hrs from me, and I really want to try and finish it. I realize I wont PR, or even come close. In fact, my goal would be about a 4:30. But I am wondering from you all, what you think of this idea? Do you think I am crazy? Do you think I will have big time trouble finishing? This would be my 7Th marathon and my last 26.2 was 9 months ago. Any words of advice?
Oh ya, and the course is a one mile flat loop. If I do run this race, I think I will end up dizzier then anything else.... ;)
