Yep, registered, the flight is book (does anyone really want to fly anywhere now?)….but yep, West Jet has my money…..and yes, the full 26.2 miles, the 42K….
It’s been a while. My last marathon, was here in Edmonton, and it was not spectaular in the year 2015…2015!
That took me forever…4:56:48!….that sucked….I was a group leader so speed wasn’t the goal, but that’s a long time ago…I’ve run a ton of half marathons since, and yep, various legs of Sinister 7 four times (legs 2, 5 twice and 6)…..
The distance doesn’t worry me, and it just feels like it’s time to get back to the world of doing a full once a year….10 years, 10 marathons, and then I took a break to do other things I guess…
I’m going to aim my training as someone beginning again, so lots of runs, long runs, hopefully I can click onto a group to keep me moving in the right direction….am not looking to those 30+K runs on my own…I don’t mind 20K, but yeah, they’ll have to get done…but well, now I can focus on just one thing, just one run…I now know what I need to do every day….including rest and recovery…but, just train…with May 7th as the end goal, that goal….
I’ve never broken 4 hours in those 10 marathons, oddly enough my best was on Vancouver, back in 2004…4:04:55….I did a bunch of them with that as the norm……my Boston time for me is 3:50 at my advanced age…I have no desire to run the Boston Marathon….it’d be nice to know I could if I wanted to…..
This evening’s goal is a steady 6K run…I’ve got a group….tomorrow 10K…..on my own….and yep, signed up for a training clinic, and yes, posted for all to see that May 7th, I’d better be ready to run everyone one of those 26 miles….Yikes!
