Did you hear the joke about the fool who’s running the New York City Marathon for the third time this year? Well, they say the guy was a fool the first time because he didn’t know what he getting himself into. He was a fool the second time because he did know what he was getting himself into. And the third time, he’s a fool for knowing all that and still thinking he could run it in a faster time. Yeah, what a fool.
Well, I am that fool, and believe it or not, those were my exact thoughts during the last few miles of my long run today. It also pretty much summarized how my training has gone this week. On the bright side, at least my kinda, sorta injury is much improved, allowing me to contemplate running a half-marathon next weekend.
Week #3 (9/15-9/21)
