Emotions of marathon training, hitting rock bottom and crawling out
I had no intention of making this a recovery week. My plan called for a number of easy runs, but the mileage was still high and I was ready to take it on…or so I thought…but the old nag in the back of my mind that tells people “I much prefer half marathons” started to get to me and before I knew it, I no longer wanted to do this race at all. Marathon training isn’t just putting in the miles, it also involves of a lot of mental and emotional time. . . .
