Doing a back-up marathon if the first one doesn’t go as planned
We have all been there. Train hard, in great shape then something uncontrollable happens on race day. Maybe it’s terrible weather. Maybe our body just felt off. Maybe we got a sinus infection the week of the race. We are chatting today about what to do if your goal race doesn’t go as planned.
Have you ever had a race that didn’t go well?
What did you do after to utilize your fitness?
How do other people react when you fail to reach your goal?
Does anyone really remember or care?
What is the risk of doing back to back marathons?
Can it work?
What are signs you should maybe not try to do the back up race?
Should you only do back up races after the race and not plan for a just in case back up race before?
