Huh? I get a bonus week of training for Little Rock. As I was getting ready this morning I was thinking about it being February tomorrow. 28 days. Then 6 more days til the Little Rock Marathon. 34 days of training left. 5 weeks. Then how come when I blogged last night I said 1 more week of heavy training then 3 weeks of taper? Something’s not right. Double checked my calendar, my running log and my blog. Oooops, looks like I started my 12 week marathon training plan a week earlier than I was supposed to! Must have been really excited for another marathon!v I’m just glad I figured out my screw up now instead of after I started tapering. A 4 week taper would have really thrown me off.
So now I’m trying to figure out what to do with this week. My legs still feel a little beat up this morning from the HM race and/or all that dancing. Options:
- I may repeat last week (since I was off of the planned schedule because of screw up with the length of the HM, I didn’t get my full 17 mile long run in; and I didn’t do an 8k-15k race, and instead did the sort-of-HM).
- I may do this week as scheduled and then do this week again next week (does that make sense?). I’m supposed to do a 20 miler this week (if I was on the normal schedule). I like the idea of doing 20 this week and next week, so getting an extra 20 miler in now.
- I may just do random stuff this week (make up the tempo run a missed a few weeks ago because of the crazy cold weather; maybe jump in a race on Saturday – I think there is a 10 mile one locally) and then jump back into the schedule next week.
Thoughts? (About my schedule, not about what a dumb blond airhead thing I did with my schedule!)
