Me? Run A Marathon?

No.

But this is the conversation between The Motivator and I tonight:

ME:  I think I need to train for a marathon.

JAMES:  <shocked look, jaw dropped>

ME:  If I train for a marathon, it might help me get faster in my half-marathons.

JAMES:  Let me write this down… “Let it be noted that on January 31st, Paula said she wanted to train for a marathon.”  This way when you’re saying ‘why the f*** am I doing this‘ in about 8 months, we can review my notes and know it’s because you said you wanted to.

I didn’t say I wanted to run a marathon, just train for one.  😀

    Wow, you’re a brave woman to even have the thought of training for a marathon. And I’m with Judy…not so sure more miles will make you faster.

    Have you tried intervals? Run faster than normal (not an all out sprint) for a short period then slow down or even walk to recover? I’ve had a lot of success with that.

    Either way…Good Luck!!

    ha ha. Well, if you train for it, you might as well run one! But you can cross that bridge (or starting line) when you get there. 🙂 I think it’s a great idea! If you want to get sucked into a mileage trap, that is. 😉 Seriously though, I’m sure James can help you figure out a plan that may work.

        I am sick, unfortunately, and forewent the run this morning for an extra hour of sleep. I may get in a run later, to see what I’m feeling like. Also, I’m drinking a lot of fluids and taking all the vitamins, so hopefully I can nip this in the bud!
