I had another run this morning, my second since last weekend’s Chicago Marathon. I felt pretty good, although my legs felt a little heavy in the middle of the run. We only went for about 4 miles, and overall it wasn’t too bad. It’s a couple of months until I begin training for my next marathon, so it is important that I try to maintain as much fitness as possible until that time. We had six guys this morning which is becoming the norm for our pre-work runs. I think it’s time for shirts for the Green and Rockview Running Club. At this point I think we have more than 16 people on our list.
The fact that it was basically pitch black when we headed out this morning does not help with the morning motivation. Although the warmer temperatures in Boston lately are a bonus. When you can still run in shorts and a short-sleeve top around here in mid-October, it’s not so bad. I can’t wait until we roll the clocks back for daylight savings time. The extra bit of daylight for a couple of weeks will be welcome. I was thinking of signing up for a fall race or two. Nothing crazy, maybe a half marathon or something with the guys I run with. I am going to float the idea and see what people think.
