It’s that time of the month…
I’d tell you that it’s only October and I’ve already registered for TWO half marathons in 2020.
Have you already registered for any 2020 races?
I’d tell you that I only have ONE more week of insane traveling with my job. After that it should be the normal occasional travel to NYC. (Should but who knows?)
Too bad, the 8 weeks of travel was during peak Marathon Training. UGH!
Anyone else have work get in the way of training for a big race?
I’d tell you that I’m following the minimal (get to the finish line) Marathon Training Plan. That means ONE 16, ONE 18 and ONE 20 miler (and NO long mid-week runs).
Kinda nervous. Hope the adrenaline and the crowds will get me through 26.2 miles.
All you first time marathoners, How many long runs did you do? How did it work out?
I’d tell you that speaking of that dreaded 20 miler, I was going to run 7 miles from the finish of a half marathon and then take the bus to start. But the bus leaves at 6:15 am and the area is kinda shady plus it’s DARK.
Park at the start and run 7 miles there. (Safer area). The race starts at 8:00 am. Then take the bus back to the start after the race.
Anyone else run a half marathon and use it as only a training run?
I’d tell you that I’m thinking of running the NYC Half Marathon again.
You can sign up for the lottery on Oct. 17 but I think that I may get in by my H2H half marathon finish time (2:11:15).
AGE MARATHON TIME HALF MARATHON TIME
It’s not guaranteed (like last year) since it was not a NYRR race but my time was fast enough.
(And yes, that again would qualify me to run NYCM. And no, I WILL NOT RUN ANOTHER MARATHON!!!!!!!)
Anyone else entering the lottery for the NYC Half?
