Rest Day Monday with a  weight lifting W/O in the evening.

Well, I'm two weeks out of my worst, 12th Boston Marathon and my recovery seems to be on track and working well. "Knock on wood"! Life seems to be coming back from my disasterous last couple of years dealing with injuries. I do hope that I can keep the focus and be a better, stronger, faster, runner in the near and distant future...

I signed up for the Big Cottonwood Marathon that runs on September 12, 2015 and I sat down this weekend and made a training/cross training schedule to get me to "GO BIG" (Big Cottonwood).  

My plan is to get well trained/cross trained, injury free and make "GO BIG" a BQ marathon for the 2016 Boston Marathon and a great warm up for a really fun competive age division run for me at the Athens Greece Authenic Marathon in November. I've gone back and deleted some races on my 2015 schedule and added others and hope to bring my 2015 running season home on a positive and successful conclusion.  That's the plan for this old man!

3 am recovery miles without Missie.....

Missie went and broke her clavical (collar bone) this past Sunday in a freak trail bike (Honda 90) accident. So she is out of the Ogden Marathon.I can't believe this happened just 13 days from race day, after all her great training. Go figure. I think she wants to regroup and do the Big Cottonwood with me in September after her broken bone heals correctly.
