Not Sick, Not Injured, Not Fast

Yesterday's 90 minute wet and raw run over the trails through the Reservation brought about this epiphany of not being injured, sick or for what this blog is about – fast. A lack of training program, regular schedule and just running with time available may be one aspect of this new revelation.

The question now is how long to maintain this unstructured schedule with the Boston Marathon just 20 weeks away? Any chances of lowering the Boston qualifying time is limited and currently not in the works. A better use of time spent might be to re-engage mentally first and then ease the physical aspect to the next level at a safe pace.

We’ll see how it goes. I certainly hope everyone else’s running is coming along at a faster pace!


  1. I think we all know you're talented enough to get back on the horse quickly. Best of luck Mark.

  2. Good luck as you begin your 2011 road to Boston. As Jamie said, you're talented and with the right training you'll be just fine.
