Have you ever been a few weeks out from a race and thought to yourself,
“Well crap. I’m way undertrained.”
That’s what happened to me about a month ago ahead of last week’s Black Mountain Marathon. Skipping the race wasn’t an option, which left me with two choices:
I could (1) run it all out, fully knowing I might blow up and crawl to the finish, or (2) let go of all expectations and ‘just have fun.’
The thing was neither of those sounded very appealing. I need every quality training run I can get, and treating it like a fun run would mean not taking full advantage of the day. But blowing up … well that didn’t sound very good either.
In today’s episode of Trail Talk, I share what happened last weekend, and the lessons I learned from piecing together a race I’m proud of on little training.
