I just ran 14 miles on Saturday at a 7:20min/mile pace then on Sunday I ran 10 at 7:42min/mile. With adaquite prepa
A. Have an awesome time!
B. Goal 3:30 or less finish
C. Goal Maintain a 7:40 +/- 10 pace
If I succeed at Goal C then I happily get B as a prize. Regardless if I fail B & C as long as I keep A in mind, B & C won’t matter as much.
Since my current Marathon PB is 3:52 I have a large delta in my hopes & dreams in comparison to past results! I can’t wait to see what this Sunday brings. But since this will be my 3rd Marathon I know how it will end regardless: I’ll be a sad, emotional mess of a runner who is lucky to have a loving and supportive family!
