I've already told you I am upping the mileage.... but maybe not this week as planned.
The goal was 45-- it looks more like a measly 25-30. I have a friend visiting this weekend which will limit my ability to pound the pavement.
Next week --and I want you ALL to hold me to this-- is when my official training will begin for the Disney Marathon and I need your help. I am running this race for 3 BIG reasons and listed below in order of importance:
1. Raise money for cancer research
2. Have Fun!
3. Finish with a time I can be proud of.
SO-- I can handle raising the money-- and it's never hard for me to have fun especially if there is whiskey and beer involved post race-- BUT I would like to know what a respectable time would be. Ideally of course, I would LOVE to run a sub 3hr Marathon but I am not sure that is at all realistic.
My half marathon time ( the longest I have run thus far) is 1hr 46min-- so if it were you-- and you were me-- what would you shoot for realistically??
