Normally, I run one marathon a year. Marathons are tough and it takes me a few weeks to recover. I did not think I would run two marathons in one year.. let alone two marathons within 9 weeks of each other. I have 16 weeks before Austin and 25 weeks before Boston. My goal for the Austin Marathon is to have fun and enjoy a larger race (most of the ones I do are small). My goal for the Boston Marathon is to go after a PR which is below 3:29. I really want to get that 3:20 marathon.
I won't be working with a coach this cycle due to strenuous school and working less. I will modify my training plan based on how much time I have to train that day and how I feel. Usually I try and do every single workout that is planned but I am not going to be that hard on myself this time. If I have two rest days in a row, so what?
I am not even planning what I am going to do during those 9 weeks between marathons until I get there. I will also be updating the blog more since finally training again! I am thinking of starting weekly training posts back up to write everything I do during the week.
What would you like to see on the blog?
Weekly training posts- yay or nay?
