I am crazy, I know, but I'm really considering doing this at the end of May- a half on Saturday and another on Sunday. I am comfortable with the half distance, and i won't be "racing" either race, but they are both important to me. So I have a question about training.
Would you train more for a full marathon at this point, as it is essentially marathon distance? I usually run 10-12 miles on the weekend easily (and then go home and take my dogs for a jog or hike), so upping my weekly long run milage? Practice doing back to back long runs- like Saturday and Sunday? I run most days of the week (dogs don't fully understand 'rest' days, but shorter and longer distances), including speed intervals, some hill repeats, and will begin track workouts again this week (thanks, daylight savings time!). I'm trying to make sure to do at least some strength training each week, yoga a few times, hiking, and I'm thinking of joining a gym to go swimming.
I'm not a super fast runner, or trying to necessarily PR, but I would like to be strong enough to do both runs if possible. Day 1 in hilly, Day 2 is pretty flat.
