What do you do when you get an e-mail like this?
A) Tell your friend that she is a special kind of mad and you don’t subscribe to such madness.
B) Think about it but decide that last November’s W.O.O.F. was chilly enough and a December race will only be worse.
C) Start looking at training plans.
I think you all know which answer I picked.
Yes, I am crazy.
BUT, I’ll have 12 weeks between my first post-partum race, the Fort-4-Fitness 4-miler, and the Huff – the perfect amount of time for a training plan. And there’s nothing like a race to keep you running as the weather cools.
Now I just need to decide whether to base my training schedule on a 15K plan or a half-marathon one.
Have you ever signed up for a race that had people questioning your sanity?
Last year, I signed up for there loops, totaling 16 miles, at the W.O.O.F. with less than three weeks to train and never having run more than a half-marathon. It was insane but I ended up doing well and placing first in my age group.
