Another week of training is complete, and we’ve passed the 30 day out milepost. We’re less than a month away from the Cheery Blossom race, and, on cue — or a bit ahead of schedule if the latest reports are correct — Spring has started to show its presence. On my long run today, I noticed several trees have begun to bloom and soccer fields have begun to turn a verdant green. Details on this week’s progress after the jump.
“Baseball is 90% mental, the other half is physical,” Yogi Berra, the famous player, coach, and manager once observed. This week, I learned — somewhat painfully — that much the same could be said about running. Details on my week of training, and the Reston Ten Miler, after the break.
