In between all the other stuff I have going, I’ve been flipping through this book, Marathoning for Mortals, the book that Tim picked for us as a guide to marathon-prep. I had no intention of running anything (except maybe a hot bath) when I walked into that meeting last night, but after flipping through this book, and reading that I can:
A: Run a Marathon, or
B: Walk a Marathon, or
C: Run a Half-Marathon or,
D: Walk a Half-Marathon, or
E: Alternate Running and Walking or
F: Alternate Walking and Running either a full or a half-marathon
And that there are training plans for all of those options, I am now going back and forth between alternating running and walking a half marathon, or walking and running a half marathon.
I know it sounds like basically the same thing, but it’s not. Not really. Mostly run with a little walking thrown in? Or mostly walk with a little running thrown in?
It’s like the difference between an Americano with room for cream, or a latte.
So what does a girl whose currently on Caffix and green juice do? (Besides go out and buy running shoes and a pile of sports bras?)
