Hello ladies! I have run 2 marathons in the past (pre baby) and swore that I would never do another one. I am secretly getting the itch to do a third due to all of your awesome, inspiring posts! I am not one of those 'natural' runners. I started running in college and it has never gotten any easier- I run 10 min miles at best and I huff and puff the whole time. I am questioning whether or not I can really complete another marathon. The fact that I have run marathons before honestly feels like an out of body experience and I have to keep asking myself, "Did I really do that?". It doesn't give me any confidence that I can do it again, especially since a lot has changed after having two kids!
I have been such a running slacker since I had my youngest and really want to run more. It is my therapy and I feel so much better when I do it, but I have a really hard time fitting it in during the day and lose my motivation at night. I think if I am following a training plan I will be much more disciplined. I used Hal Higdon's plan in the past and did alright. I am considering Jeff Galloway's run/walk plan and wondered if anyone else has done this and what you think of it. Thanks!
