6 week countdown
So I only realized this morning how close we are to the Asheville Half Marathon! It’s like around the corner. People it’s 6 weeks away! Thankfully I have received the running all clear. But still…. 6 weeks. Usually in the weeks leading up to a half marathon I have a strategy. Well it occured to me I have no strategy. Yep. None. Well, I guess I have a semblance of a strategy….
So my strategy is to have no strategy. I am embracing the chaos.
That’s right. Yours Truly will not have a meticulous training guide for this race. Instead I’m just going to keep building on the strength I’ve gained during my running hiatus (serious strength!) and take it day-by-day with mileage. So come race day this could be a triumphant success or I could hobble across the finish line like Bambi learning to walk.
End of rant. As a disclaimer I will note that this will be my 14? half and I was been less prepared in the past 🙂 So I’m thinking it will be lots of fun but no PR. Also I’m a race ambassador, so I’m really excited to meet some of the other bloggers who will be there!
So what are your pre-run rituals? Anything you like to incorporate specifically before a half marathon or marathon (besides a training plan)? Have you done any strength training this winter? Have you ever just winged it…. tell me you were successful?!?! Also ever been to Asheville? Any advice is appreciated!
