The Stonecat Trail did a number on my right achilles tendon. You know something is amiss when trying to two leg heel raises and it's painful the first inch up. Time to ice and massage to get the blood circulating in promotion of healing.
I came across this Boston Marathoner's blog who promises a weekly post on his venture. It's good to see others are also starting to focus on the Patriot's Day race.
Coach Joe's training program reads upside down. Here is a coach (also Ultramarathoner) starting with speed workouts then medium distance and finishing doing endurance training for phases. Just the opposite of what I will do.
It kind of reminds me of the OldLobo and his Boston Marathon pursuit last year. OldLobo got injured, poor guy; it's a fine line for Masters runners to put the stops on when things could pull you off track.
Lastly, the timing frequency was interfered at the NYC Marathon losing thousands of marathoner's data. Read about it here. Was it intentional? What would jam the Chip timing system? Darn good reason to wear a watch at your chip races and display your bib number.
Training: Speed-Strength, one circuit, 3.75 miles. 4x.25m at 6:00/mi. pace on treadmill
