Starting Anew

After months of intense training for the Detroit Marathon, I took the last week of October off to recover from the race. Then another week. Then another.

Then I had a plantar wart removed from the bottom of my foot which, by the way, is incredibly painful. It meant a couple more weeks off.

Then it was the holidays.

And then… and then… and then…

And now, nearly eight months have passed with only negligible training (see nearby chart). The fitness I’d built up is gone.

Time to start anew, methinks.

“So what do we do? Anything. Something. So long as we just don't sit there. If we screw it up, start over. Try something else. If we wait until we've satisfied all the uncertainties, it may be too late."
