Since I decided to not attend the conference last minute, that means I can run the OC Half Marathon after all. I actually signed up for the full, but need to move down to the half since I wasn’t training/thinking I was going to run it.
Well, I’ve been “half marathon ready” since October and have ran a half marathon a month since then (with the exception of a 10 miler in March).
This is good for checking races off my “To Do” list, but not for PR-ing. I will run the OC Half Marathon this weekend and just enjoy it. But, I want to PR in my next half exactly 5 weeks away! So, I’m going to write out a training program for the next 5 weeks and see if I can make it happen.
It’s definitely going to be hard to get faster with only 5 weeks of training. (I am going to do 4 weeks of training and a taper week.) But, I need a new goal and am just going to go for it!
Right now I’m thinking the plan will be:
2 hard days of running
2 easy days with my group
cross training on the other days
Now I am off to my second day of training for my new job. Then, I’m hitting up the expo!
