Questioning My Decision to Run a Marathon
I decided to run my first marathon in November of this year. I've been running pretty consistently at 45-50 mpw for the last 3-4 months and I have been running 12-14 miler long runs every weekend. Then, a month and a half ago everything fell apart. My 13 and 14 milers bunked at 8, 10, or something in between. I thought it was the heat but I've been pretty well hydrated throughout. I thought it was the fuel and that can still be it, but I doubt it.
I think it's all the stress from the GA Bar, work, and the move to Orlando that did not pan out. All the phone calls, issues, arrangements, etc. I think that's it.
Or at least I hope because, otherwise, I am not ready to do the marathon. But my previous training says otherwise.
