|Don't daydream in arroyo tunnels or they will hand you your ass|
I had logged two 50mi+ weeks prior to this. Last week's mileage was 56mi, with one workout and a long run of 12mi with Waltz up in the Arroyo Hondo. The goal is the New York City Marathon in November. I registered in April with the idea that I'd be healthy enough at some point this summer to cobble together a training cycle. It seems to be coming together fairly well with 14 weeks until race week. I know that fitness is coming on because of the recent onset of the zombie-hunger - I have been eating twice as much as normal and still dropping weight. Roast chickens run for cover when I enter an Albertsons, as they should.
