4:30 or Bust: A Quest for Marathon Mediocrity

28 days to the Chicago Marathon

leave a comment »

So, clearly, writing in my blog is not one of my priorities 🙂

I’m gonna try an experiment here.  With only 28 days to go to the Chicago Marathon, I’m going to try to write a new post every day.  I give myself about a 4% shot at meeting this goal, but will give it the good-ole-college-try.

Right now, I’m in between long runs.  On a long-run-every-3-weeks schedule.  My next long run is next Sunday, at the NYRR Marathon Tune Up race.  That will leave me 3 weeks out from the race.  In prior races, I’ve done more long runs every other week, but sometimes it burns me out, and my training is not quite at that level yet this time around.

While I should now be running at least 4 days per week, it just has not worked out that way.  I’ve only run twice this week, but at least also did a 50 ride bike ride on Monday.  I was not able to run yesterday, and this morning’s planned run was nixed due to one of my kids being sick and messing up my sleep last night.  I still hope to run later on tonight.
