Heidi - when you truly hit the wall, there is no quick recovery. And you will know it as you will be completely spent, unable to continue.  Most people don't really hit the wall, but they get close - and you can still recover at that point to an extent.  Best to prevent it from happening by using your long training runs to figure out what works for you nutrition wise.

Well, seems like I made it in the New York lottery again.  Cool, but I'll be deferring to 2016.  Already got plans for that weekend this year!

The results and the photos have been available for a few days already.


The control panel at the side of the toilet seat in my hotel made me feel as if I was about to launch myself into space!

Hi TD. Yes my entourage will be the top geezer known as Dannir. Not being joined by any of my family. Probably the wise choice. There was a lot of faffage with the family in Paris last year. I want to my 3 days pre-Bosti to be chill. We've got baseball tickets and the Boston 5k to look forward to. I won't have to worry about D being bored at the expo - or spectating at the marathon. He'll be WELL INTO IT (seeing as his brilliance in Tokyo last week has taken him within spitting distance of the qualifying time )

We are going out at chill speed on the 5k (which means I huff and puff while he coasts around), and fully intend to have a fun, relaxing time to get Jimbob in the very best head shape for an awesome race.

Berkeley Runner - it works for me I think - at least this recent marathon seems to support that.  You are doing some serious mileage!

From recent experience I can confidently say that missing a week or two of training has no ill effect, no matter where in the cycle it occurs assuming the rest of your training has been pretty solid.

Just got in from Tokyo - awesome race, awesome volunteers.  Came in at 3:47 - was very happy with that.

I think all the long course length readings were due to it having many twits and turns, as well as the usual long reading one gets.  I've never had one as high as this one though (26.8).  I don't think it had anything to do with the buildings.

Heidi - no, I live in the US, do a 14 hour time difference to Tokyo.  I usually don't find jetblag a problem, but this time it has been. I've been up at 2 am very day (it's 5 am as I type this).  But, I think 30 years of broken nights as a physician must have trained me well!

Recalculation shows I'm 9 minutes from a BQ.  I think I can realistically work towards that.  I'm all for charity places in general, but not for Boston. If I never BQ, so be it.
