We’re back on track folks! I got all my scheduled runs in last week and had no problems, inside or out. With travel to Connecticut for Colin’s wedding I had to smash everything into five days instead of six, so obviously I skipped my rest day. Tuesday’s intervals (four 3/4 mile repeats) were right on target and Wednesday’s 11 mile run to work was on the faster side of normal.
On Thursday night Ev and I landed in JFK and made the drive out to Connecticut near Colin’s apartment. I met Colin Friday morning on a street corner to embark on our 20 miler and my last major run before tapering for Chicago. What I wasn’t expecting was actually how humid it was. I was hoping for cool, crisp Northeast Autumn. Instead we got foggy, rain* that lasted approximately 2.5 hours of the 2.75 hours that we ran. Good news is my leg-hip injury is a thing of the past. It was great running with Colin again, and now he’s all married and stuff!
Now for my least favorite thing, besides the dentist… tapering.
