I agree with weights a nice diversion from pounding out the miles all the time..I think that is why I do it..also to stay balanced..I find I am mentally burned out as I work towards my 5th marathon in a year..then its rest time! cycle for fun..since I don't know how to run for fun!

What a neat recipe to try! I am sure it will go well with a big old glass of Red too! Being single is okay too...no one complains about my collection of running shoes all over the house.

Its the tempo run that is the key to faster marathon times. Tonight its 10 miles with 8 mile race pace and I find this to be one of the harder workouts (well except for mile repeats on a track) but then I do look forward to the slower long run on the weekend. I am curious what people think of the 6 ...

Boston Bound

Thanks for all the info on Boston, very helpful. It will be my first time there and my 4th marathon in less than a year and I am doing it as a "fun run". I know I won't come close to my 3:36 best time but as a soon to be 41 yr old woman I think I have an under 3:30 in me somewhere soon!
