So I completed my half marathon. That dream race of mine, the Surfer's Path Marathon is right around the corner. Should I do it?
I'm thinking not. I do sort of want to do it, but I don't think the timing is right. It was only a month ago that I couldn't finish a 10K. I am certain I could finish it, and I'm almost certain I could run the whole thing. But I don't think I could run it like I want to, and the satisfaction at the end might not be worth all the time it would take to train for it.
Rory's birthday is coming up. It is just 3 days before the marathon. So I'd rather just focus on his birthday party rather than stressing about a marathon right now.
Also, I'm not sure what I would get out of it. I think if I did it, it wouldn't get the marathon bug out of my system. I know I'd still want to do a better one, and I think if I spent more time training in shorter races, my chances of having a better marathon once I finally did one would be greater.
There is a half marathon that day, too... Maybe I'll do it, maybe I won't. Right now I feel inclined not to. I want to focus on recovery right now, and not sign up for any longish races.
