Should I, or Shouldn't I?? Your Feedback Please
I'm sitting at my computer, looking over the remaining 10 weeks of my training schedule for the N.Y. City Marathon, and I have a "crazy" thought. I'm scheduled to run-walk-run 28 miles (Yes, 28) the day after the Hartford Marathon. So now I'm thinking that maybe I should enter the Hartford Marathon and test the run-walk-run in an actual marathon. Based on how well or how badly it went, I could readjust my training for the 3 weeks after it leading to the N.Y. City Marathon on November 1st. At 6 a.m. and after drinking one cup of coffee it makes sense to me. It certainly wouldn't be too strenuous, since I'd be alternating running for 4 minutes and walking for one minute the entire 26.2 miles. Your opinions, please! UPDATE: I'm not looking to PR at NY. NY's going to be my 3rd (or 4th) and LAST marathon. I just want to finish NY, take it all in, and most importantly HAVE FUN!!
