I’m about a week away from the Boston start line, and I feel pretty good. I’ve been working pretty long hours in NY, and I must admit it has adversely affected my run schedule. Somehow though, I’ve still managed to put in 70ish mpw. Though the long work hours in a different city have hurt my mileage a bit, I have benifitted from escaping the pollen and humidity of Atlanta. It has made my outdoor runs much easier, and I’ve been able to run faster paced at a lower heart rate.
The weather forecast for Boston look favorable, though we are admittedly to far out for me to rely on weather predictions. Assuming the weather holds, though, I think i will aim for a sub-2:50 finish. As we get closer to the race, I will refine my goal as necessary.
