This is an eventful year for the Viper and his Enthusiast. Wait, I already said that. As you may or may not have noticed, my little running odometer in the righthand column hasn't budged so far this week. Unfortunately, that's not a mistake.
This has been just another instance of this summer streaking by unceasingly. My soon-to-be wife and I have been in the grips of a house hunt (yes, amid the remainder of wedding preparations), and these last two weeks have been quite eventful. House found, bid placed, bid accepted, yadda, yadda, yadda, loan rate locked and financing in process. Nobody told me how much work buying a house would be.
While I managed to fit in all my runs last week with only mild rescheduling, this week has presented a major challenge to my running plans. The only chance of getting my miles in now is to run the next four days. Doable, but not ideal.
Thankfully, I'm following a very conservative buildup training plan, which should at least keep my healthy if not optimally fit to race.
