Plus being able to do this would be cool.
Now I’m not totally sure though.
Mainly because at some point yesterday, I decided I really want to run another marathon. Soon. Like within the next several weeks. I feel like I put in all those weeks of training, and I should get more than one race out of them.
I bounced the idea off a few friends, both runners and non-runners, because I knew my runner friends would just be enablers. The runners obviously told me to go for it. The non-runners were slightly more hesitant, and I’m still really unsure.
My one friend did find a pretty ideal race though. It’s teeny tiny (only 350 people), local and three-weeks away. That would give me time to recover, get in a few more runs and then tackle the distance again.
I’m not totally sold, but I sort of feel like I have unfinished business with 26.2 and kind of want another crack at it. But I don’t know, the pain in my legs is still very real, and I’m not sure I’m ready to put myself through that again.
Then there’s the option of picking up lots of shorter local runs. This time of year I feel like you can find a 5K or a 10K to run every weekend if you wanted to. And maybe I could use my awesome marathon training to take a crack at my shorter distance PRs.
Lots of options, not sure which one is calling my name the loudest. So really, I’m just not sure what’s next. Anyone have any ideas for me?
