February update

It's eight weeks to the Boston Marathon, so I'm starting to feel that I'm running out of time to get really fit. The Snowpocalpse has been a problem; it makes it hard to get the long runs done. Yesterday I ran 13.5 on a route that was basically up Heartbreak Hill, around the reservoir twice, and back over Heartbreak hill. This morning, my legs are a bit sore, which concerns me a bit, since I did not run hard. On the plus side, my knee is a little stiff, but not swollen. I had originally been signed up to run the Hyannis Half Marathon today, but it was cancelled because of the extreme weather (although it's not too bad today). It's been interesting to be doing a weekly track workout at BU. I kind of enjoying them, but I haven't really been able to say they are making me much faster. A couple of weeks ago, I had been pretty worried about my left patella having a lot of clicking and crepitance, but it seems to have settled down. I had intended to run the Old Fashioned 10 miler in Foxboro last weekend, but that was postponed to 3/8/15 because of weather. I'm not sure about running it - it would probably be better for me to do a non-race longer run that weekend. The weather forecast is discouraging; it doesn't look like it's going to warm up enough to melt the snow any time soon! 2/21/15: Me & Heartbreak Bill
