Still sick

September 14, 2011 by Amy B

Less than a month before the marathon and I’m still not feeling running. Weather has gone from 80 to 40 degrees. Worried about the race. I know I can finish it and I know there will be walking but I’m pissed all my hard work all summer has been pissed down the drain.

Race packet arrived today. I’ve run marathons on much less training. I’m just trying to formulate a run/walk plan. I know Jeff Galloway says to walk early, but can I really bring myself to walk after only a mile?

So much for PR. I do know that if the weather is hot (not terribly likely but it could happen) then I’m going to have to skip this year. And that would absolutely crush me.

So I’m praying for high 50 temps and that I feel well enough to give this a shot in two and a half weeks.

I'm a thirty-something suburbanite turned ruralite living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Wife, mom of two, eater of all things delicious, and a runner. This is where I blather on about running and health. Baby Number Three will be here in November (so yes, I'm a little crazy), and I'm running through my pregnancy for as long as my body's willing and able. There's also more of me at Read more here.
