Well other than a 2 mile shakeout run on Saturday my training is complete for the 2013 Rock ‘n Roll New Orleans Marathon. My running over the past week has been pretty meh, including two 3-mile goal marathon pace runs which were not terribly comfortable.
Not sure what race day holds but I’m pretty confident that I’m not in BQ shape for this one. My plan is to run the first half fairly conservative and then see how I feel for the second half. Since this is the first marathon after the stress fracture, the primary goal is to simply get this one under my belt. As for time, I honestly think I would be happy with anything under 3:30.
Anyway, about to board the plane for New Orleans with my bride. Looking forward to a great weekend together.
A few minutes ago I received a call from the Italian Barrel restaurant in NOLA telling me that they no longer had a table available for my reservation on Saturday, which Olivia made back on JANUARY 29!
My immediate thought was of this memorable clip from Seinfeld that explains my feelings very well.
