Work, Work, Work, Work, Work...

It has been almost a month since my last post. A combination of reasons good and bad. We went to the Dominican for a week at the beginning of the month for some much needed R'n'R, maybe a little too much. Once back to work it has be go, go, go. I don't think I've been this busy in years. Getting in runs has not been as difficult, but the recovery from our holiday has made the transition to training not as easy.
Once back I decided to forgoe the Ilinois Marathon, partially due to my brother Todd visiting from Hong Kong, but I don't think I'd be ready in a couple of weeks anyway. So I signed up for Nashville on April 25th, Rick McLean asked me if I'd be interested in going down with him and Bill Lovett. So after checking the schedule I decided "what the heck".
So after getting the long run back up to 31k last Sunday, and running a few tempo runs this week, all I have to do is get in some speed work. The weather at least has been cooperative, all the snow is gone and some warm weather this past week has made it nice for running. It has cooled off the past few days, but still sunny. Hopefully next week I can start some speed work. I have felt sluggish for quite a while and hopefully the speed work will step things up a bit.

I ran Nashville last year. Fun event, hilly, but you should have no problem. My sister is running it this year. Good luck!
