It's not a running day. It's raining and the streets will turn to ice, I predict, causing chaos. I'm not going to get wet and also risk a slipping injury... Plus, I just heard thunder a few seconds ago. Thunder in February? What is happening to our climate?
Anyways, I did some math today to figure out when I would start my 18-week training program for the Chicago Marathon. It starts on June 19. While I was doing math, I did some more, and it showed me that in 2006, If I run 40K a week from Jan. 1 till June 19, i'll do about 960 km (600 miles) and the 18-week program will have me doing about 840 km (520 miles).
I have a long way to go.
