No one has ever called me a genius.   I didn't get accepted into a 7.2 mile race so instead I'm going to do a 13.1 mile race.   Because that makes sense...

I have 17 weeks until the race (which I still haven't signed up for,  natch).   I found a good 12 week training program,  but I need to be able to run the pre training program for "several weeks" before starting the training.   Pre training looks like this: 

Mon. Tue. Wed. Thu. Fri. Sat. Sun.
Pre-
Train
Off 3M 4M 4M Off 3M 5M

Today is supposed to be an off day as you can see,  but I just took 2 days off so I'm going to go out tonight anyway.  I may just do a quick 2 miles tonight so my legs are fresh for the 3, 4, 4, I have coming up.   Technically I'm supposed to be cross training on my off days,  but I'm not feeling the kettle bell tonight,  I"m feeling a quick 2 mile run.   I'll start cross training on Friday! 

I have 5 weeks before I need to start the actual training program and by then I should know if I'm going to be able to continue with the program.  Fingers crossed!

(clearly not me.  I'm much chubbier.  And shorter.  And I don't have good form.  But you get the idea)
