I turned 39 yesterday and ate like a pig at La Fondue. It’s been a week since I ran last. Now it’s time to get back on track, hit the road at least four times a week, and gym at least twice a week, and get my pace under seven minutes a mile no matter how long the training distances. I’m sure there are more specific, scientific ways to prepare for and run August’s San Francisco Marathon or October's Silicon Valley Marathon in less than 3:16, but this is my plan at the moment to qualify for Boston in 2009. First up: an actual run sometime before midnight.
