I have a 18 and 20 miler left in my long run training plan.. my second attempt at my first marathon is a month and 3 days away.
I was to run my 18 miler this past Saturday but had a conflict so i tried to run it on thursday (two days early) and i just couldnt make it. (new shoes for one thing and I had NO energy.. just couldnt find it)..
Here I am wondering... do I give the 18 miles another try tomorrow or tuesday OR do i skip it altogether and wait for the 20 miler that is 2 weeks away?
I am having a hard time trying to figure out, also, what time of day to run. It gets HOT here by 8 or 830 am... if I run in the evenings its HOT and you can feel the heat coming up from the ground its so hot... Do any of you get up and start runs like at 4 or 430? would that just be nuts?
OK.. oh masters of marathon knowledge.. impart your wonderful womanly wunning wisdom to me :) tehehe :)
thanks in advance :)
