I think I stole that title from someone famous...feel like I've heard it before. If not, I made up a great quote!
But it's the truth.
Without any running goals I have made absolutely no progress.
4.25 miles this entire week.
Pathetic. Wisdom teeth surgery or not, I should have logged more than that already.
So, I'm thinking that putting a marathon or two on my schedule might be just what I need.
I'm not making any commitments yet, but preliminary research shows the following possibilities:
Oct: Bridge to Ridge in NC (the one I already said I would run and changed my mind)
Nov: Atlanta Marathon (T did it last year and survived)
Dec: Rocket City in Huntsville AL
Jan: Robins AFB Museum in GA or Calloway Gardens (also in GA).
No firm plans yet, but I have got to get myself motivated to do something.
Feel free to give me any suggestions, butt-kicks, words of wisdom, etc.
After I got home I decided to make out a training schedule to see what month would be a good month as far as training goes. I used the same schedule as for my last marathon (from cool running) and figured that I need more than the typical 18 weeks to train (I still haven't gotten myself back to running without walking since my foot break). So I thought I would see where their 2-stage buildup training would take me to. It would take me to Feb 2, 2008. So, I googled that date and marathon and guess what? There is a little known (well, I didn't know about it) race down on Tybee Island clickhere. And well, I like Tybee Island and have spent quite a bit of time there soaking up some rays (and a little splash of Amstel). So, this may be it. Registration is not open yet so I still have time to back out.....but, you know when I decided to run the San Diego marathon I did the exact same thing...so I guess maybe this means it's fate or something. Yeah, or something.
