This whole year has been “if this, then that, if X then Y, if A then C…” if that makes any sense. It started with me signing up for the Madison (half) Marathon just 21 days after my full Wisconsin Marathon. If my legs could handle a half marathon that soon after a full, then it opened a whole new world of race opportunity for me. Not that I was racing, but it was great to participate in events with a lot of my favorite social media circles.
If this, then that. If I could run 13.1 miles twenty-one days after 26.2 in the spring, then I could do it again in the fall.
Knowing that the Tyranena Beer Run was only twenty days after my full marathon, I purposely waited to make any decisions about spring 2013 races, aside from Ragnar in June that I’m already committed to. I wanted to see how my legs would hold up, if any new mystery pains would appear.
The good news, no new mystery pains. The frustrating news, my same old reoccurring pains are currently in full rotation. The more positive news, none of these pains are in full swing injury, just things that I need to be cautious with.
So if X then Y… If my limbs are revolting, I’ll forgo a spring marathon and focus on keeping my legs healthy for Ironman in September.
If A then C.. If I had THAT much fun at the Tyranena Beer Run, then I’ll have THAT much fun again in the spring doing a handful of half marathons with my favorite runner pals.
Experiments are fun!
