Friday's are good days!

It might be my subconsious or maybe it's just the fact that it's Friday and I'm looking forward to the weekend but today was a decent run after a tough slog yesterday. Exactly the same pattern as last week! Is there a hidden message? They say to listen to your body...

"Say what, I'm hard of hearing?"

Started out a little sluggish and slow but eased into what felt like a nice steady pace with low heartrate. The weather was mild at just above freezing and it was dead calm. I love it when there is NO WIND!! Cruised around the Point with a nice ocean view and lots (that's more than two) people out walking their dogs. Then continued out of town and did the Ghost road loop before returning to work for a total of 11 miles in 90 min. The shiny new shoes were also working better today and didn't trip over my heels as much.

After my Boston rant in the previous post, I realized that it was time for me to actually enter and fork over the dough despite any misgivings about waves and course changes. I'm now entered and awaiting confirmation. My time should put me in the 7th or 8th corral in the 1st wave and all that I can do now is train like hell till then. Besides hills I should also remember to do some heat training in the last few weeks. I can either run indoors on the treadmill and stink up the basement or put on winter layers and run outdoors with spring temps. I'd really like to actually race Boston this year instead of having the weather dictate how I can run but always look forward to this race no matter what happens ;-)
