I am now in the prime training time for my third full marathon event. My A-race for the year is the Walt Disney World Marathon in January. My last two marathons had times just below the 7 hour mark. My goal is to hit 6:30 or lower.
This is a super ambitious goal for me. I’m happy to have found a fantastic trainer who believes in me and my goals! However, we just reached the first milestone in marathon training the 14 miler! I think the 14 miler is that breaking point. You’ve past that half marathon point but you realize there is another 12 miles before you on race day.
For me the 14 mile run is usually the point that I start asking myself why I felt the need to do ANOTHER marathon. I mean seriously, I could have stayed at half marathon and been done by now but noooo I had to do a full marathon!
I don’t know about anybody else but I hate the training part. I mean can’t I just wake up race day and be ready to go! That would totally defeat the health benefits and all the glory but I fight the laziness everyday.
When you are reading this today I will be at or have completely 5:30am track workout because I have the desire and drive to get faster and be better. So here’s to all those other crazies chasing their speed dreams!!
What are you working on??
