1. I hate adjusting to the time change from West to East–getting up early for workouts has been a challenge this week. A challenge I can handle, but a challenge no less. I much prefer going out West and automatically waking up early. I always try to stay on the East Coast schedule while there, but it never happens.
2. I’ve readjusted my Boston training plan to incorporate all the training I’ve had to miss due to my little bumps in the road (Achilles and foot pains). I’ve decided that since I won’t be getting all the miles and speed work in I normally would for a marathon, I’ll take my last 20-plus out to two weeks from race day. And since Boston is on a Monday, it’s actually two weeks and then some, so it’s really not that big of a deal.
3. Favorite moment when I met EMZ the other day: when she asked if I had a treadmill in my house. And then learned that in the more than three months since getting back to running, I’ve used it once. Pretty sure she was aghast at the fact that I give my machine no love. I will avoid it at all costs!
