WEEK 4, Day 1: 700m swims AND CHEESE STEAKS!

If there's one area where I feel the least confident since my recent experiences, it's the swim. I'm petrified of that paralyzing dizziness. But I did great today, about 700 meters, not too shabby. I'm even making the switch to the Y so that I can be around the masters swimmers.
But it's time to direct myself back toward long running again . . .

That's right, you heard it here first: I am officially signed up for the Philadelphia Marathon. And there is no IT band or dizzy spell that's gonna hold me back. I've got 20 weeks to train, I've got Hal Higdon on my side, I'm running better than I've run in years, and there is a sign in front of my alarm clock that says MARATHON. So, before I get up, before I even see the time, before I hit snooze, I see MARATHON in big purple letters. Every few weeks it will change to things like MILE 22 or PUSSYor NO WHIZ.

Passive-aggressive suicidal ideations, take that!
