This is the big question: Is this even possible?
I’m not a big runner. I play a fair bit of sports, but that’s largely been on hold this year.
I’m also notoriously injury prone. Indeed, that’s the real risk here. I’m not even sure if I can complete this goal without pulling my soleus muscle (an all-too frequent injury I get while running).
So, how can I even hope to run this marathon with such little training?
Well, I’m gonna have to be perfect in my training and preparation. That means, for the rest of December:
- No alcohol
- No sugary snacks
- No fast food
But that’s just the start. To have any hope of managing my body, I’ll also be:
- Doing pilates every morning to stretch
- Massaging the hell out of my legs with a massage gun
- Ensuring I get at least eight hours of sleep each day
I’m still working on my full training plan, but I’ll publish it here once it’s ready if anyone wants to see it.
