State of the legs

It's been a while since I've updated here but after moving to San Francisco and losing my grad student status I've really started running fewer races. Mostly local stuff for fun. My latest run was the Kaiser half with 1:32:37 finish which according to Jack Daniel's pace tables suggest I can now do a 3:20 marathon. Thank you very much. I found that out the hard way in Chicago 2010.

I'm out of shape right now. If not physically but physiologically and psychologically. My weekly mileage is very low -- around 25 on the best weeks; less than 1/3 my best weekly mileage. My goals for this year is to get back to at least 40 miles per week and do a BQ either at Santa Rosa (for 2014) or at Chicago (for 2015).
