Word on the street is that it’s spring. I’m not really sure I believe that since I ran a half marathon this past weekend wearing all the layers. All.of.them. But supposedly it’s here. Which means it’s time for our Tuesdays on the Run discussion of how your spring training is going. Do you have an “A” race coming up?
My “A” race this year is Ragnar Pennsylvania. I know that you are thinking “but you run Ragnar every year, how does this require training?” Well, I’m running my first Ultra Ragnar. Yep – half the runners, twice the miles. Now I’m the mini miler on the team, so my mileage may not be more than some runners have in a regular Ragnar, but I don’t know the plan yet. So I need to train to run about 30 miles over the course of 36 hours. On these hills.
Coming up I have the National Women’s Half Marathon and the Frederick Running Half Marathon. Hopefully I can sneak in a few more races between then and Pennsylvania. Or you know, actually run long on my own, which I haven’t done in months. Oops.
Hmm, maybe I need to run 6 times in 36 hours – THAT would be interesting.
How’s your running going? Did this extended winter throw a wrench into your plans too?
