I am still trying to figure out which of these two distances to concentrate on. Out of 25 races to date, 14 have been half marathons, two have been full marathons.
That should be enough evidence to convince anyone, including me, that the half is the distance I prefer.
|Half or full?|
As a build up for a November marathon I signed up for, completed 18 miles yesterday on the Suwanee Greenway. Why??? Beyond that, I have also signed up for two more full marathons in early 2013 - force the issue I suppose. Maybe I'll know after doing 3, 4, 5,... more fulls? Fulls, fools, hmmm...
When I look at this logically, at my pace, usually 2:45-3:00, the half really is a great workout for me. I'm not "racing" against anyone. My goal is to finish, get a really good workout, and enjoy the process. But of course, sometimes logic does not matter :)
I am curious though, for those of you who do these distances, do you have or did you have this internal battle? If so, any insights?
