I signed up for the OC Half Marathon way back in August (when I got a good discount email). Recently, I’ve been going back and forth about switching to the Full.
I really wanted to find a flat
like my chest and fast course for my next full. I do not think that the OC Marathon is that. But, it’s local (read: a lot cheaper than traveling). I’m hoping the hometown advantage will help me, so I signed up.
I’m nervous about this decision, but I don’t have time to worry because it’s only 10 Weeks away! Didn’t I just recommend 16-18 weeks for marathon training? Um yeah, I did.
But, I’m already up to 13.1 miles in my long run, so I’m starting from there.
I’ve put together a training and nutrition program to get me to the finish line. I’ll share it as I go along. I usually just chisel my training plan onto a cave wall old school style (read: pen and paper calendar) so I don’t have it on the computer to post now. Feel free to ask questions if you have them, I just can’t show my whole calendar right now
72 Days until the OC Marathon!!!
I haven’t taken training for any of the last 4 half marathons seriously, but I want to take this training seriously. Starting now.
I have a long run scheduled after my morning interview today. I probably won’t even begin until 11am – let’s hope I bust it out!!!
Ben randomly requested something with BBQ sauce for dinner. I made these fake chicken tenders…
Dessert was unpictured. It always is. Seriously.
The peanut kind has pieces of peanuts. And probably crack.
Question: What do you think about hometown races?
I don’t feel like this is really hometown because I’m new to the OC, but I’m hoping to get familiar with it real fast
