|Extract from the Boston Globe on 20 April 1982 after|
Salazar had won the Boston Marathon by 2 seconds from
Dick Beardsley in 2:08:51 (I was 49th in 2:22:39)
I had followed my plan of getting there an hour early and running 10km as a warm-up, but even in that warm-up, I didn't feel I was travelling well. Plenty of coughing, hawking and spluttering to go with indigestion, so maybe I would have been wiser not starting. However, as discussed in yesterday's post, I'm reluctant to back off from my planned training unless for a good reason.

For today, however, I know I do have a cold, and that it is affecting how I feel when running. I will trust that when it abates, I will feel and run better. On the plus side, I barely felt my injured right arch tonight.
