Although in my heart of hearts, I know that NYC Marathon will not happen. I’m not being negative or a hater, but let’s keep it real.
- NYC has been a major COVID-19 epicenter, and we’ve just started our first phase of getting back to normal.
- Many epidemiologists believe that the next wave of infections will happen in the fall. NYC Marathon is scheduled for Nov. 1.
Oh, and the Daily News just published this article.
Argh!!!! I CANNOT go through another 3 months of this quarantine mess.
Ok back to the training stuff.
The 20-week plan that I have chosen is not super aggressive with about four training runs per week plus the standard weekend long run. This time around, I going to try to incorporate better eating and nutrition habits. Then again, I say this at the beginning of each marathon training cycle. Oh, I plan to cut down on the amount of smoking because I have been smoking way too much during this pandemic. Since I’m about two weeks shy of my 40th birthday, I need to start getting together this aspect of my damn life.
Then again, minutes after seeing this sign, I got a cup of ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s.
