My friends and I often say we are “woefully” undertrained for things we still show up to do. And so I feel like maybe the word has become cute and I need you to understand that this weekend: IT IS ANYTHING BUT.
I have run about 30 miles in the last 3’ish weeks.
Which could be just considered a long taper if my training had been GREAT up until then.
It had not.
It had been decent at best…severely lacking at most.
Why is all of this relevant?
BECAUSE I HAVE TO RUN 57.2 MILES THIS WEEKEND.
LUCKILY. I have a bunch of crazy friends doing it too and we are all at varying levels of “trained”. My friend Chelsea is probably close to where I am (she’s running on Sunday) except she’s had serious injury and illness as her excuse. I JUST CAN NOT GET MY SHIT TOGETHER.
Should be fun.
