Took off in 30 degree air, 12 inches of snow on the ground, fairly dry roads, for a 6 miler up and down Dimple Dell Rd (some of my favorite hills). Life is good. On sunday I will be 14 days post Dutchman and my recovery is coming along great. Sunday will be a 16 miler in what the weather gypsies say will be about a 50 degree day with no wind and partly cloudy skies.........we'll see.......

Whoops, Must have been looking at next sundays mileage on my schedule. Seems like I only needed to go 12 miles rather than 16. So it was!!!  What a gorgeous day. When I went out the door it was @ 41 degrees and by the time I hit half way it had to be over 50. Little or no wind with lots of sun shine and very few clouds.

Wow, what a week! It's saturday morning and I think I will take the day off from running. I'll just take a break and get well rested for a 20 miler bright and early sunday morning.

29 days till the BOSTON MARATHON..................seems to me that our bib number packet pickup cards should be in the mail soon?

That was a really fun run today! I no more stepped out the door for my last really long run before Boston and it started snowing. Now if that wasn't enough, it was blowing snow sideways straight in my face at 20 mph winds gusting up to 40 mph until I turned around to return. The only good part of all that was it was behind me on the way back home, and I was glad to be getting pushed along. Oh well that fun run is in the books and now it's pretty much all down hill to get well recovered and as ready as I can get to do the Boston Marathon in 28 days!!!!!

Got my BAA 5k Race Information packet in the mail today. I suspect the BAA Marathon Race Packet should be here any day now?

I decided to take an unscheduled rest day today.....I'll get out and do a bunch of Yassos tomorrow morning and work on my speed (or lack there of) training. I'm feeling pretty good but I do have some residule wearyness from my past marathons. Time to load up on the extra sleep.
