Three Week Hiatus is Over

So, time has passed and things have changed. I won’t bore you with the details.
This is the present: I now run 80% of the time pushing the stroller; it’s interesting and will become more as Fall progresses. Last three weeks have been nothing special for the runs are pretty much five miles each. Lame. Last Saturday I came down with a fever that pushed 101 degrees, I am just now starting to feel about 90%.

Cape Cod is a mere four weeks out. There will be no taper. Plans are to run two races previous if time allows. At least one race. Build mileage and hope for the best. The goal is readjusted to let’s say sub 2:50 would be nice, also achievable, at least from the armchair. I know, it’s a different story when you have been out there for 18 miles and the miles keep getting slower. This will be interesting…

  1. Glad to see you back on the map. If it's gotta be with a stroller, so be it. Good luck with the rest of the run up, and a hope the legs behave for the next four weeks.

  2. I ran Cape Cod last year with Marc. Lots of fun - a great race, beautiful scenery. Just remember, even though it's sponsored by Dunkin Donuts, they fail to provide coffee at the finish...

    I can't be the only one that likes coffee after a marathon.
