4:30 or Bust: A Quest for Marathon Mediocrity

26 Days to the Chicago Marathon

leave a comment »

26 days to the Chicago marathon! Still honestly not obsessing too much about it yet. Just focusing on ramping up my training in these 2 critical weeks.

In addition to the 4 miles I ran yesterday morning, I played softball last night. Running the bases and outfield is a great cross training running activity and that counted as a good 2nd workout of the day.

I wanted to swim this morning (I’m racing a tri in Red Bank on Oct 3), but unfortunately didn’t make it. It was possible, but a logistic challenge. Last night after softball, I had to go to my mother-in-law’s apartment to help her with a computer problem. It was late afterwards, and by then I was too lazy to park my car in the garage. Therefore I had to move it by 7am this morning. I could have swam at 6, moved the car at 7 and then gotten ready for work afterwards (my wife is on take-the-kid-to-school duty this morning), but in the end I decided I needed to get to work early and just skipped the workout. I can always try tonight.
