As most of y’all know, last November I ran my first marathon (recaps here and here if you missed them). It was both the hardest thing I’ve ever done (physically speaking) and the most exhilarating. So much so that I signed up for a March marathon, with training that began less than a month after my first marathon. There have been many cold/rainy/icy/snowy Saturday mornings before a long run that I’ve wished I could go back and tell myself:
While for the most part I have enjoyed this training cycle, I am a bit tired of waking up at the crack of dawn to run for hours on Saturday mornings. Marathon training takes over your life a bit and I’ve basically been in this training mode since last July. I’m just tired of training and tired of long runs. I’m really looking forward to March 16th and to getting able to run shorter distances.
Please direct me to this post if, after Shamrock, I get some crazy idea to train for another marathon this year. You know, like if I try to run Marine Corps. 🙂
Have you ever felt like you were just ready to get a race over with so you can not be training so much??
