Help Me Survive My Bad Life Choice

Standard

So a while ago, in the heat of a post-run “I can do anything” high, I signed up for the Two Oceans Marathon.

If you don’t know me well: I started running in 2013 because it was the only sport I could do that didn’t require a huge financial investment.

It kind of grew on me a little. This past year was a good year for running. A while ago I just kept running and accidentally did a 21 km (half-marathon).

Anyway. The Two Oceans Marathon is an ultra at 56 km. It is on 26 March 2016.

I haven’t even run the qualifying marathon yet. I’ll do that in February.

It’s just that running has been really hard for me ever since I signed up.

Especially getting those long runs in… It’s just that considering I have at least one 24+ hour call a week, that means I’m out of action two days a week… leaving me five days to do four runs.

It’s hard. I’ve always just run for the sake of running, the only person I had anything to prove to being myself.

Suddenly I doubt myself every step of the way.

I feel like the Blerch is following me around wherever I run.

I need advice, running world!
