4:30 or Bust: A Quest for Marathon Mediocrity

3 runs in a row!

Following my pitiful miles covered in April, and my so-so run on Saturday, I made it a point to continue getting work in in on Sunday and Monday, even though it turned out to be 10pm on Sunday and 10:45pm on Monday.  The important thing is that I was able to get 3 days of running in a row!  In going through my running log, it seems that 4 days in a row is my high water mark, done only a couple of times, but 3 days in a row is a lot for me as well.

Yesterday (Sunday) was a 5.2 mile run down 1st Ave to the FDR, then down the East River to Wall St and then back up Ave A, done in 48:12.  

Today (Monday), I was supposed to play softball, but that was rained out.  My original plan was to bike up to the game and back, in Riverside Park.  But, with the rain, a bike ride didn’t seem like a good idea.  Then I had to wait until late for my run.  My wife was out tonight, and my 13 year old was to babysit my 7 year old.  It turned out that our goldfish (goldie) was on her last fins, and was dying.  My 7 year old was not taking it well at all, so I felt I needed to stay home with her until my wife got home, which was after 10:30.  So, just did a little 3.1 mile loop around Stuyvesant Town, in 27:32, which is under 9 min per mile.  Had to work around some big water puddles in the service road.

Anyway, hope to hit the gym and pool tomorrow.  We’ll see…
