Still queasy today, I called in sick and spent most of the day in bed. I thought I would steal an idea from Cliff and use an appropriate Homer image. I'll probably go back to work tomorrow, but put off running for another day. My legs need to recharge. Tried to change the sidebar of my blog page a bit, with my limited HTML knowledge (cut, paste, edit link).
Since I had time to reflect today, I started thinking about what I am going to do after the marathon. Having just finished reading Hal Hidgon's book, I want to recover properly and avoid the post-marathon blues. So, I thought that it would be a good idea to think of new goals. I am finding that marathon training takes up too much time...even at this point in my life, when my work and family commitments are minimal. I'm not married, no kids, and I work 8 to 4. But I still find it hard to get the long runs in. I don't want to neglect my Tony, and I still want to judge skating (there's a competition this weekend, even though it's off-season). So, I think I might scale back the distance and work on speed...work on new PR's for the 10k and half marathon. No ultras for me yet...maybe never :) If I can clock faster 10k and half marathon times, perhaps I can think about taking a shot at qualifying for Boston in the future. Haha...didn't I just say that running was taking up too much of my time?? ;)
