I was supposed to do my long run this morning, but instead I woke up with a splitting headache. And I hadn't even had the fun night out Thursday night to earn the headache! Not fair. Also... when did running become so complicated?
Whenever I'm running early, I lay everything out the night before. If it's a long run, that ends up being quite a lot of stuff...
Anyway, I'm still not feeling great, so we'll see how the long run plan shapes up. For now I wanted to share this running quiz with you all! I clicked over to a commenter's blog and saw it there. Thanks for the inspiration, Madison! (Originally created by Olive to Run). I thought the quiz was really fun, and I'd love for you to respond to the questions as well in the comments!
I haven't run a marathon yet so I'm not sure! However, I will say that so far, I love training for the marathon, and I love how much effort you have to put in. In a lot of ways, I think it makes the marathon feel more worthwhile.
But with that said, if you have a bad 5K, it's not a big deal, right? You can easily brush it off. As someone who had not-so-great half marathon experiences multiple times, I have to say, it sucks! When you've spent weeks training for a race, a poor race performance feels like much more of a disappointment. I can only imagine how that would feel if it were for a marathon!
So.... I still don't have an answer. For now, 5K, since I haven't run a marathon yet!
Haha! I love this question. Definitely someone who breathes heavy and grunts because that would be entertaining. I'd feel rude not talking to someone trying to talk to me, but I'm not really a race talker, so that would just be annoying.
