I need some advice.
A few of us Puget Sound bloggy runners have been e-mailing back and forth about doing a race next month. It’s nearby. It’s FREE.
And, it is 15.78 miles! (It’s called the Million Inch Run.)
I want to do it, but I have not yet broken the half-marathon distance yet, and that was back at the end of November. The most I’ve done since then was an 8-miler the week before Christmas.
My training schedule is calling for seven miles on the day (Feb. 13) of the Million Inch Run — less than half of the race distance. I think mentally and physically, I can do it, especially if I get some longer runs in during the next couple of weeks. However, I don’t want to hurt myself or do anything to jeopardize my paid-for race on March 21.
Is it too much mileage too soon? What should I do?
