1500 Miles of Hoppy Spring

1

Halfway there (Read 217 times)

    Tonight's 5K race put me just over 750 miles, 50% down and 50% to go. I figure it will be close at the end of the year. I'm gearing up for an early October marathon, which will have my mileage up. As long as the post marathon dropoff remains reasonable, I should beat that furry critter to the line. I like my odds, so watch out you fuzzy biatch, I'm coming through!

          I like hills, I really do. Jaybar and I did 9 miles of hill work on Sunday to get him ready for the Green Mountain Relay this weekend. After Manchester NH and Providence RI, I just don't want to see any hills on my next marathon course. I'm running the flat and fast Baystate Marathon on October 19th. As a bonus, I know some of the Greater Lowell Roadrunners who will be working the course so I'll have a few friendly faces along the way. And trentman359 has promised to be ready for the half, he's gonna join me for the first 20K. Every Tuesday night when I'm running the Good Times 5K I smile and dig in a bit as I run past the 40K marker.

            Hey, I'll be doing the Baystate Marathon as well this year, to cap off the USATF-New England Grand Prix series. I actually have my first 18 miler planned this weekend in preparation. I am hoping that for my last 20 miler (3 weeks, or maybe 2 weeks before the marathon) to head up and run the 20 on the course itself.

              Right on, Ed!!!!! Keep it up!

              Just because running is simple does not mean it is easy.

                I'm such a geek. Tonight's run was supposed to be 4 miles, but I looked at my log and saw that 4.5 miles would bring me to 990. So 4.5 miles it was, now when I raise a beer to toast the Yankee Homecoming 10 miler tomorrow night, I'll also be toasting 1000 miles. I've opened up some distance on that damned furball pace bunny, unless something blows up things are still looking good for 1500.
