With 2 months to the day until the NYC Marathon, I need to bang out some serious miles over the next 8 weeks. That said, I started today with a 5 mile run and it went well. It's about 90 degrees here and I can deal with that. I look forward to running in the heat more that I do the cold (50 degrees is too cold for me). The summer is great and I would not trade it for the world, but the lack of a serious schedule can really derail my running in a heartbeat. It's the fall and school is starting, soccer, dance, gymnastics, etc. will all be making the weeks pass by at a lightning pace. However, it is also easier to get my miles and workouts in because the schedule is set and I can dictate events and carve out time.
I am looking forward to a great marathon and a fall and winter filled with running. No breaks! I am going to suck it up in the winter and pile on the layers. Next spring and summer will be an improvement on an already great 2015 racing year.
Tomorrow, I will stretch out the miles and start some accumulation. Keep up the hot weather!
