2 Weeks

Ohhh Heeeeeyyyyy: OJAI.

T-2 weeks. That came FAST.

I have been having mixed emotions about this race. On one hand I am ready to go crush 26.2. It’s time for a marathon PR. Not just a few minute PR. A ginormo PR. On the other hand I have pre-race doubt. My heel is till nagging me a bit. That tiny bit of soreness could change the entire outcome of my race. Should I run?  Yes. No. Maybe so. I hate that.  I don’t want to run the race and feel disappointed at the finish. I want to give it my all. So here we are…

The past week (or so) has looked like this:

05/12- 18 miles (11 easy, 7 @ MGP)

05/13- Rest

05/14- Easy Run

05/15- Morning run: W/U, 4×800, C/D- 6.1 miles

              Evening Workout: 1 hr Barre Class

05/16- 30 min Yoga

05/17- Easy Run

05/18- Rest

This weekend I am planning on yoga and my last real long run. Then it’s time to mentally prepare. And taper. Yes. Bring on taper.


Off to drink hot chocolate and put together party bags for my big boys birthday party tomorrow. I know, wild night. Try not to be jealous.

  1. I know you will crush it. Marathons are like life sometimes the things we are the most apprehensive about turn out incredible. You are strong, fast and fully capable of achieving what you have worked so hard for. You got this. Enjoy your taper and knock em dead at O2O.

  2. You’ve got this! I hope your mental preparations in these next two weeks are so encouraging and motivating! You’ve worked hard, and a marathon with or without a PR ain’t easy 🙂
