i am booked. flights booked. bib booked. now i’ve got a short 14 weeks to train!
i am instantly happier. a goal again. last night i spent a few hours putting together my training plan. it’s a mash-up of runner’s world intermediate training with hill and speed work taken from my running group and Nike.
i really know nothing about the marseille course, or what to expect. from what i know of french races (based on the paris marathon)
- french athletes are never thirsty because there are almost no water stations (well, water every 5k)
- french athletes don’t pee, because there are hardly any porta potties
- DONT DRINK A TON OF WINE THE NIGHT BEFORE THE MARATHON
the last bullet has less to do with france, and more to do with me having been an idiot before the paris marathon.
here we go!
