That shouldn’t be hard, as last year was an abysmal fitness year. I’m 15 lbs above my 2002 marathon weight and 20 lbs above my 1997 marathon weight. I haven’t accomplished a 30-mile week since last October.
- Make it through this year’s NYC Marathon injury free.
Finishing is the primary goal. A realistic goal is to finish under 4 hours. The optimistic goal is to run a 3:45 marathon.
I logged my first miles of 2005. The roads were mostly cleared though semi-frozen snow SUV tracks made footing a bit tenuous. I wore two layers to cover my legs (tights and sweatpants), three for the top (a poly tee, cotton long sleeve and a hooded sweatshirt). Pace was slow barely faster than brisk walking. 3 laps of Seaman's Neck Loop. I’ll break out my new trainers, NB 833, tomorrow.
