Half of me wants to do the half
While there's part of me wishing to do the Shamrock Half Marathon again this year, I'm really trying to get focused on the Charlottesville 10 Miler that's in 13 weeks. But the same weekend of the Shamrock, my wife has a business trip in Virginia Beach. The Shamrock is 11 weeks away. While I haven't been running that much, I am feeling good with all the cross training I'm doing. Heading into this week, I am in considerably better shape than I was at this point last year ... and last year I was battling foot problems. I feel the best I've felt in a long time.
On the other hand, I've been saying since September that I wasn't going to do another half for a while. The 10 miler in April is a good distance to get ready for and it's something different. And I think if I planned my recovery out right, I'd be able to do the 10 miler no problem.
I'm conflicted as you can see, but I need to make a decision soon. So for the first time in a while, I'm am seeking some advice on what to do. I appreciate any suggestions in the comments section, and feel free to vote in the poll below.
