- NYC Marathon - Nov 4
- Army-Navy Game, Baltimore - Dec 1
I made my reservations with:
- Brother's family in NJ
- Lord Baltimore Radisson
I paid the price for admission and now have at least two personal indulgences to fulfill this year.
Speaking of indulgences, I came home for lunch yesterday and realized I had no late afternoon appointments or deadlines and there would be slim to no chance of afternoon thunderstorms. With that in mind I packed a bag, went back to work and, at 4:45 slipped into the men's room to change.
By 5 p.m. I was on my way to Cocoa Beach. By 6:30 I was swimming in the Atlantic Ocean. It was at least 10 degrees warmer than Rhode Island but was still refreshing; just not quite as much.
This morning I went over to do 3x1600 repeats. After last week's debacle I was only hopeful as opposed to confident. I did the first two at around 8:05 pace and slowed down considerably on the fourth. I stopped at 1200 meters. To give myself the satisfaction of getting it done and improving my speed I did 4x100 at :22 each to finish.
