Marathon Training + Vacation = LOTS of running… It goes against reasoning, I know.
This Thursday, super early in the morning, Karl and I fly out to Punta Cana for a little mini-vacation. We get back in town Monday night.
This Saturday, I was scheduled to run 11 miles. From the looks of it, there isn’t really a place I can go out for a run in Punta Cana, unless I want to hit the beach or treadmill. Uh, 11 miles on sand? HAHAHAHA. On the treadmill? HAHAHAHA.
So yeah. Not happening.
But I don’t want to skip this long run, specially since the long run last Saturday was one of the drop down weeks, where we only had to do 6 miles, so it wasn’t really a long run.
So my plan for this week? (Sure you can laugh, it’s not like I can hear you…)
Run home today = 3 miles
Run to work tomorrow = 4 miles
Run super-freakishly-early on Wednesday = 11 miles
Run with the group Wednesday night = 5 miles
Yep. I really am planning on running 23 miles in 3 days. And nope, I have no clue if I’ll succeed. I’m predicting quite a few walking breaks in between… It’s not like today there isn’t a severe hot weather alert or anything… Well, at least today is only 3 miles, right?
At least on Wednesday it’s supposed to be MUCH cooler, with a high of 80. That 20 degree difference should help, no?
Then I can bum all weekend at the beach guilt-free, at an all-inclusive resort, where my biggest worry will be “should I reapply the sunscreen?”
Fingers crossed I get all running done…
