Ya i think that is a more relaible time frame for a time trial, buys me more time to get back to flatter terrain and i'll have more stuff at my disposal as gyms and the world starts opening back up
I would also recommend working on running fast on some downhills so your quads get used to that kind of pounding. Train for the course! CIM is full of downhills kinda like Boston, except CIM is way faster.
Another thing i would need to prep for is fueling strategy. I ran all my races on no fuel, and just a sip of water i got to drink from 1 aid station i zoomed by during both races. I rarely take gels in training and only drink water regularly during runs though. I take one gel midway through every weekly long run. Either a myspringenergy electroride or a honeystinger gold. I know that that is impossible for a marathon to race without fuel though because my glycogen will be depleted for sure.
