I’m registered for a half-marathon this weekend and I’m not sure if I should run it or drop down to a 10K. My knee and calf have been bothering me since Saturday’s 20-miler — though I don’t know if it was the 20-miler or the fact that I have been sitting (and working) too much since then.
Pros of half-marathon:It’s on the training plan; will allow me to practice pacing and my mental game 1 more time; still have 2 weeks to rest if anything goes haywire.
Pros of 10K:Less wear and tear on the ol’ system; same swag at the end; not sure if I NEED need one more half or am just being stubborn.
What would you do?
