Saturday will be my first official test for the 2009 season…the Jolly Jaunt 5K in Boston. After just 3 weeks back training consisting of 100% aerobic exercise and heavy strength work in the gym, it is guaranteed to be a shock to my system. Never-the-less, it’s a data point on a new season and a great way to start a Saturday. The way my aerobic runs have looked thus far, I’m aiming at a 17:45-18:00 finish which would put me slightly ahead of last year at this time. The goal is always 7 seconds per mile of aerobic improvement from year to year…….we’ll see!
