4:30 or Bust: A Quest for Marathon Mediocrity

20 Days to the Chicago Marathon

leave a comment »

20 days to the Chicago Marathon! And I will spend it by recovering from my 20 miles yesterday.  I’m feeling pretty good today.  My slightly out-of-whack left shoulder and lower back are feeling better.  Also, nothing out of the ordinary in terms of muscle soreness from the run yesterday – little quad soreness, ankle pain and hamstring love, but all good.

After the race yesterday, I went out with my wife and 14-year-old to see Rock of Ages on Broadway.  What a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon.  It is a very cheesy story, with very cheesy 80’s music, and very cheesy broadway comedy humor, but fun nonetheless.  Although I still get uncomfortable being around my daughter when watching something that features so much adult content, and exposed skin with the female characters 🙂

That was topped off by a burger and chocolate peanut butter shake at Five Napkin Burger!  Highly recommended…

Then watched some football, and slept 9 hours last night.  Feeling pretty well rested today.

Playing softball tonight, then will play tomorrow by ear.  Maybe a bike ride in the morning.  Gotta figure out how to make the most of the last bits of hard training this week and next.
