Sometimes I've suffered from post marathon depression. A lack of desire to run, whatsoever!
This time is different? My body is rebounding quite well. I walked a bunch today...work related. I was visiting at the hospital, twice, and it is a huge facility. I am a fast walker. I guess it's the ADD in me, and I was hitting my stride well today.
So, two off days and tomorrow, even though very busy, I want to try a run. I really want to recover and train for another marathon. I've really got a deep sense that I am fully capable of running well and strong for 26.2! Thus breaking the seemingly unbreakable four hour barrier.
Here's my plan. It's really very simple. Every other week a long run...as long as I can go time permitting. One MP run in the week between working up to a long run. I will be training my body to run at the desired pace and building greater endurance.
All other runs will be base pace or just how I feel.
I recently read a book by Dean Karnazes entitled 50/50. The one where he ran 50 marathons in 50 days in 50 states. One thing really appealed to me that he mentioned...."running errands". Basically he'd take off and spend the day running, going into town, the bank and whatever. He'd have a backpack on and make a day of it...this appeals to me! I'm gonna' try it! Stay tuned!
Thanks for your kind comments regarding Bass Pro. I need to find a marathon, on a Saturday, close to Springfield, Mo, sometime in Feb or March. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Peace!

So we call this season fall...well it fell! Nearly all the leaves are down and you can see much deeper into the woods. Time stops for no...
So I am certainly a young looking 62 yr old. Especially with my hat on, but if I get knocked off my routine I find it causes me drag. I...
