Virgina Beach... umm that is 11 weeks from now!
So after thinking about marathons I really want to do Virginia Beach on March 20th. The travel is not THAT bad and I get to see my brother and super cute nephew. Plus Knoxville looked a little yuck and if I want to ever 50 state it I don't want that to be my Tennessee run. So I am all pumped about this Virginia Beach run when I think "Hey I might need a plan" Well umm.... March 20th is 11 weeks away! That means racking up the mileage QUICK! I have been doing 10 miles all December and did 11 miles for New Years. I have played with a lot of situations and I get my miles up pretty high (1 20 and a 22) and still get a little taper. But what is your opinion??? Think I can be marathon ready in 11 weeks? I just want to get another feel for what my "time" is so I can work towards breaking 4 hours.
My husband's response was "Its not like you don't run all the time"
Last night I did speed work for a 5 mile run and finished in 43:00 minutes which is that 8:34 pace I am longing for! That is what it will take to BQ ONE day : ) Oh we can all dream!
