I went on my first run yesterday since the half. It wasn't great.
I had set out to run 4 miles but only made it 2.5. After the first mile, my legs began to feel very weak. I took today off and plan to hit the road tomorrow-- hopefully with success.
Input needed: How long until I get back to normal?
I also need another goal-- Yes, I know I want to run a marathon-- but which one? I want my first full marathon to be somewhere special-- So far, here are the races I am considering:
Pros: C'mon, it's Disney!
Cons: Far from home. Won't have a lot of family support there.
Pros: Great course, along Erie Canal. Close to home. I have several friends running.
Cons: Close to home :) therefore not very exotic
Pros: Awesome race and it calls itself the only International Marathon in the world. It starts in Buffalo USA and ends in Canada-- The finish line is literally right at Niagara Falls!
Cons: My partner cannot attend due to a scheduling conflict.
Anyone else have any suggestions? The earliest I feel I could be ready is mid to late August.
