Go Wings!!!!!

O.K. the obligatory, move on from scandal and redirect to sports stuff, damage control to the campaign is complete.

"Vote for Mike '08" moves forward....

remember to mention campaign slogan....

"i can't do any worse than anyone else!!!"

Back to running, this is a running blog???...

This is turning into my worst week ever for running. It's the weather and other life stuff getting in the way. Mostly the weather.

i knew to expect a cold winter, and mentally i was good, but....c'mon now, it's April 12th and it rained, hailed and blew winds at 20+ mph yesterday.

So i missed yesterdays 8 mile, speed workout. Saturday is a 20 miler, but i have a meeting all morning for Rotary and i bartend that night. Maybe i'll get it in Sunday???

But that'll take all my weekend time, and i need to be a little bit of a father too.

After a little personal debate, i have added another bayshore marathoner to my list of bloggers. Ken is a bit of a blogger-of-a-blogger, but he looks like an experienced runner and newbie's like me, need to find as many as seasoned runners as they can.

i also noticed that Ken appears to be an east-sider, it's a detroit thing, this may be a potential training buddy.

i've 4 more weeks of hard training to hit for the bayshore, then the taper.

thanks for reading

Now's the time for the mental part of this training to come in...don't look at the obstacles, look at the goals...all that stuff.

A week off is no biggie. Maybe cut down Sat's 20 miler to 13 or so and do 20 next weekend when the schedule may be lighter.

Though the weather sucks, it's still better than it was 2 months ago...at least 20 degrees warmer (though a bit wetter)... and you managed some nice runs then.

Consider this your kick in the tail. I'll be doing 13 this weekend and 20 next if you care to join me.

I wouldn't worry about missing a few runs here and there. You're way ahead of your training from last year, so it's all good.

I'm really bummed that I can't seem to log as many miles with nursing school...
