Episode #256 of “I Can’t Believe I Just Signed Up For That”
In typical triathlete style, I tend to (well, try to) plan everything. Now, do I always follow that plan? Absolutely not. Life gets in the way, stuff happens. Plans get derailed. One of my goals I’m working towards is running a full Ironman in 2017. I’m shooting for IM Maryland, because it’s so close to me, and frankly, because the course is pancake flat. As part of my IM prep, I plan on running at least one marathon leading up to the race. I had originally planned to run a marathon in April/May of 2017, but last night I threw the plan out the window for once and registered for the Marine Corps Marathon. …Which is happening in less than 60 days. Crap. What was I thinking??
Does anyone have any good marathon training tips?? Any tips for prepping in a hurry?! It’s two months away!
