So part 1- I have a friend who asked me to run her first half with her on May 19. This would be my 4th half, and I would jog at her pace, not racing it.
Part 2- my running group (which I LOVE) is the official training group of a local full. half marathon + 10k/ 5K. The founder of our group is one of the people that organizes this local race and the majority of the group is running it. It's on May 20th.
Would it be totally insane to do back to back half marathons? I wouldn't be "racing" either of them, or would that be even less reason to do it? Or do a shorter race, like the 10K on the 20th? Or just volunteer and cheer the group on?
FTR- I run 25-30 miles a week, with a long run of at least 10 miles every weekend, and I usually feel fine after the long runs, occasionally hiking after or going for another run with my dogs later in the day. But I know that's not the same as two halfs.
