After a strong speed workout last night, I’m feeling good about this year’s race. I’m in a much better position on January 25 than I was last year. At this point in 2016 training, the stress of a lenghty training program had almost caught up with me. I was less than a week away from the first in a series of calf strains. Those injuries limited my training time in February and March. And, the decreased training increased my finish time in Boston. I’m sore today, but I should be. All in all, the change in my training program is going to be a huge benefit for this year’s race.
