"There's only one hard and fast rule in running: sometimes you have to run one hard and fast."

I'm months behind where I expected to be in my training. I threw out my back and, for once, it did not heal quickly (so this is what getting old is like). This is my second week back and I'm running almost a minute per mile faster than I did last week; the rapid improvement in the early weeks is always fun. The plan is to do 6-8 weeks of just endurance work with two days of slow hill repeats before doing any real hard training. I was planning on racing through the spring, but now late May at the earliest and July at the latest seems to be when it'll happen.
Steve says hi. Like in the last line of a letter (remember when people wrote letters?) between two people who both know him. Like that. Hi.
Oh, and I write about running. 35 years and nearly 600 races thus far.
