So first things first.
I was cleaning (omg right?!) and I found that dang pink planner under the giant orange duffel I’d packed for camp. Good thing I already purchased a Deluxe Planner for $16.95 and I’d already reworked my marathon training in the Deluxe. So I think I need to do something with that pink planner, like only put bills and dinner or something in it and save the deluxe for everything else. But I digress.
I think I made a boo-boo in my marathon training.
I know. Shocking. I made a mistake?! But I did. Let me explain.
I think I didn’t really get into the thick of marathon training til about 9 weeks out from my last one. I’m not sure why that was, but I think some of it was because, in the back of my mind, I perform a little bit better under pressure.
This time, however, I started training plans like 17 weeks out. Which was a mistake. Because the runs that far out are like “blah blah, run like for a second, you’re DONE!” and because I’ve been doing it for a little longer, that didn’t help me to take it seriously. Tip to self for next time? Don’t start your training program so far out! Cause then, it’s not real. Hey, I’m not a total expert, kay?
So I’m like 10ish weeks out now, and I think all systems are actually go for my October 26th marathon. Here we go!
