    Meander and Commute 10.6 mi

    Meander yesterday morning to watch the ducks. So many hooded mergansers on the canal right now! Much more than I can remember ever seeing in the last 4 years. They're so fancy.

      I have no idea what a merganser is, but I assume you can only see one if you meander. Which I don’t, so I don’t. Is it more like a heffalump or a yeti?

      What a fast run! And the ducks. I love ducks. (Come to think of it, lord love a duck... ) When you are swimming in the lake, friendly ducks will come paddling around you if you do it right. Love ducks. Anyway, a great run.

      @Barb G. You already know that long races requires more time and more sacrifice.But family must have priority. Of course you are right. And short races are fun too :)

      A sub 3 hour marathon... yikes! A sub four, I think you can do, but as you say, family demands make it kind of unlikely for some time yet. Anyway, those are great ladder workouts.

      Sometimes life gets in the way. Even if it isn't the planned pace, it's better than having to skip it altogether.
