it seems decidedly strange to post a race schedule when i haven't run 1 step in the last two weeks - and still have one more week on the sidelines, per doctor's orders, following my cataract surgery! still, i'm ever hopeful about lacing up and getting back on the roads to run (and eventually, race) again. next wednesday, the 8th, i can officially return to running - and will probably celebrate with a few laps around the high school track!
my goal for the remaining weeks this month, leading up to the escarpment trail run on sunday the 26th, is to simply rebuild some base mileage and endurance. finishing escarpment at the end of the month, despite the 3 week hiatus from running and training, is my objective :D
along the way i hope to get in a few short races - the more ambitious target is the norwalk summer series 5 miler on the 11th (i'll see how things stand after on friday, after a couple of running days back). but the westport summer series 3.8 miler the following weekend is probably a more realistic first race, post-surgery.
i'd also like to get in the masters challenge 5k on the 22nd - and test out my newly restored night vision on the drive home from fdr park! that's one of the major benefits from the cataract surgery :D
so, on a purely provisional basis, here's how it looks so far:
7/11 - norwalk summer series 5 miler
7/18 - westport summer series 3.8 miler
7/22 - masters challenge 5k
7/26 - escarpment trail run 30k
as always, if you're at any of these - say hello!
