i know i said that i'm running a full marathon before i leave on the mish, but now i'm having mega second thoughts.
- there are 12 weeks until the UV marathon (june 8) and all the training plans i've looked at are at least 16 weeks long. i don't want to be under prepared. if i'm gonna run a marathon i want to run it right, that means training well.
- i'm scared. there i said it. i'm scared that i won't do well. my few runs i've been on in the warmer weather haven't been amazing. and i'm scared that i will hate the entire race. my friend who ran a marathon two years ago said it was the worst thing ever. i'm comfortable with half marathons.
- i'm lazy. let's be real. lots of days i'd rather take a nap than go running. i live a reeeeal exciting life.
- i don't have lots of time. as i work more i won't have time to put in the hours for a long run. because i'm not the fastest runner, when i get to the really long runs i will need 2-4 hours. of course it will be warmer so i could get up early in the am and go running (but why would i do that when i love sleep so much?) and since i work most saturday afternoons and evenings i won't have time to do the long runs then either.
maybe i'm just rationalizing away reasons for doing a full marathon. i could always do a full marathon when i get home from my mission. it would be a good goal to do once i get back.
or maybe i just need some mega motivation. like a runny buddy. new running shoes. a promise of a road trip. or ryan goslig + puppy. just sayin.....
anyways i could use some advice, motivation, etc. to help me decide what to do. i have to sign up for the marathon by march 10 if i'm going to do it. help a girl out will ya?
peace and blessings.
