I am the ultimate worst at making any personal decisions!
I have the chance to do Berlin this year. I’d have to register in less than 3 weeks.
ME: I really have no interest in doing another marathon / Ugh, the frigging long runs
Myself: What if I could have a new PR??? All indicates I could PR. Last time I had a Marathon PR (3:27, also in Berlin) my half time was 1:44, now I am down to 1:36 (did TWO 1:36s this year). And I had PRed at the half in the second half of Berlin with 1:40. I am sure a PR is a given now. Finish time calculations put me anything from 3:15 to 3:21. Which would be insane!!! I actually never thought of PRing ever again since Berlin 2012.
ME: But… have 9 weeks to train, and I haven’t done any long runs in 2 years. The longest I’ve done is the 3 halves I’ve run this year and a couple of 15 milers in the winter.
Myself: It’ll go super quick, you only have 9 weeks of long runs!
ME: I need rest. I am exhausted. I haven’t taken a week off or an easy week since my trip to Italy last November!
Myself: Ok, it’s happening. This week. While we decide.
For now, I am taking this week as an EASY week. While I think. Easy weeks are harder than Marathon Training. And I HATE marathon training…
Here we go
