Leftovers, Week 34 (first week)
Germs from traveling left Kurt sick all week, an occupational hazard. As new training gear, he's thinking about wearing a white surgical mask through airports. *** Will Roy's wife Marabelle be running? Is her year-long bout with plantar facitis behind her? She puts us all to shame, perrennial 3:45er *** Overhead lunges suck. Wabbly footing; hurts my knees. Returning to hanging weights at my side. *** Ed says he's walking his first marathon in April, in Nashville. Figure 6-6:30. That's a looooong walk. Unaided by GUs, would you still hit the wall around 18-20, like a typical runner, or would glycogyn stores run out earlier? *** Looking way ahead: Kurt and I applied for the NYC lottery in June; Roy has guaranteed entry. Marabelle? for 06? ***NY has delivered two of my worst ever runs. An ITband painfest in a monsoon (4:25 in '97) and last year's cramped, dehydration shuffle on a humid 75-degree day (5:07). I'd like to do it comfortably just once. *** I caved on managing baseball. Reluctantly took a Junior League (13-14yo) team this spring. So I'll be mixing in running with practices/games twice a week, plus three days of Bandits baseball (13s), plus basketball for another month. I agree, it's too much. Thank God the Vioxx is coming back....
