oy. I just noticed I have a crazy month coming up ahead…
I know there’s serial racers out there who won’t think twice about it, and I do know you can get just fitter by racing, but there’s also the risk of overdoing I have to manage very closely, and I noticed I have 4 races in a row coming up!
Run As One (4M) Sun, Apr 28. Maybe
Long Branch Half Marathon Sun, May 5, 201. Yes.
UAE Healthy Kidney 10K Sat, May 11. Maybe.
Brooklyn Half-Marathon Sat, May 18. Signed up.
The problem is that my running has been quite crappy since NYC Half (March 17). I stopped for a week for a strange hamstring pain, then I got a cold, then I got busy, then lazy.. . you know how it is! I barely just started running last week. The truth is I overdid it. I did a half 6 days after my target half and paid a high price for it: took me a huge while to recover! Will I ever learn? Looking at the races above, I’d say no…!
– This weekend I did around 11 miles with Blaise and Juan on a East River/Manhattan-Williamsburg Bridge loop. Hadn’t run “long” in a month! It was slow and it hurt.
-Running the BostonStrong Central Park run tonight, hoping to catch up with a few of you! (will try to do some speedwork before) See you there!
