Running in circles
In March, I ran a 20 mile race as a prep/test run for Boston which was 6 weeks later. I ran it in 2:47, which was a 8:22 pace. I finished strong...taking it easy at the beginning and finishing the last 3 miles at the fastest pace for the whole race. My goal for the marathon was 3:45 (Boston Qualifier) so I was on track to get there pending a major meltdown in the last 6 miles. But then the weather happened and all bets were off.
My goal hasn't changed, but I've got some work to do to get there. So, round and round the track I will go as long as the snow stays away. And when winter does show (hopefully not with a vengeance to repay the mildness of last year), I'll hit the treadmill or the streets to get these legs moving with a little more speed than they've become accustom of late!
