Racing…I love racing! I want to race!! However, I am going to be starting my training cycle for my marathon mid-December. So should I race? If I do what distance? These are the things I can’t decide!!
What I do know…
I don’t want to run too much between now and when this cycle starts. I want to be fit and fresh so I can work hard and see great results. I have planned out for the last couple of months what this cycle will contain and even planned for the weather. I am giving myself a long training cycle and making room for possible missed training days due to weather here in the lovely state of Indiana!! Last year we had several days of the roads being completely shut down due to snow, this repeated would cause issues. Plus, we had several other days that were sub-zero with even worse wind chills.
I have a few local races I may or may not partake in and I just don’t know if I should or not!!!!
First race on the 22nd. There is a local 5k that is for a local family trying to save money for an adoption. This I am sure I will do just for the cause. I know a few folks from my running club will probably be there as well. I will mostly just run not race!
Second, a turkey trot on Thanksgiving morning! I just want to do this so I can eat more mashed potatoes with gravy!!
