After all, the race is in 6 weeks... unbelievable...
But my long runs are getting longer... at least for me.
I'm up to having to do 8, 9 or 10 miles over the next few weeks. I know some people can whip that out like its nothing.
Our local 10K was just ran & the women's winner did it in like 33 minutes... are you kidding me? I'd probably still be able to see the START line behind me if I turned around at that point.
I'm slow... I mean SSSLLLLOOOWWWWWWW...
So 8, 9, or 10 miles - it takes me awhile.
My problem? I'm a photographer & my photo season starts up this weekend. Which means my days are getting ready to be full... on top of already being full... & that's without running.
So I'm in a situation I don't know how to handle...
I'm even looking at my calendar & thinking that this is going to be near impossible & I just need to give up the idea of this race... but then that ticks me off... & I bounce back & forth...
Do I run early & chance being tight & sore for another 3-4 mile walk with photography clients, trying to cover my moans & groans of pain?
Do I run late when I've finished sessions & know I have pictures waiting to be edited & my house needs to be cleaned... & my the other 1,000 things I need to do is on my mind?
Or is it possible to break up the long miles?
Is that beneficial? I'm really wondering.
I was thinking, this weekend, I need to do 8 miles. My sessions start in the afternoon. Can I run maybe 4 or 5 in the morning - something my body is easily used to... & then get in a 5k at night. I don't mind doing a 5k on the treadmill at night.
I don't know if that is something that would work or not - & I mean by keeping me ready for race day. Does that help with endurance if its broken up?
|yes Long run, I may have to....|
I'm going to try & figure this all out...
Time is not on my side
