  1. RUN
    alright Rutherford 3.15 mi 00:27 08:42 pace

    Easy morning run to test out the leg, which felt the best it has in weeks. A good sign.

  7. RUN

    First run since the marathon felt ok. Very stiff start with a decent finish. Miles were 9:08, 8:56, 9:17, 8:56, 8:50, 9:00 and 7:50.

      Thanks, Christian and Philip. It was smooth until the last four, but it wasn't a total collapse. I thought those last four were going to be in the 9s the way I was feeling. So I'll take it as a small victory 😃

    alright Rutherford - around town 3.2 mi 00:26 08:13 pace

    Last run before the Wineglass Marathon. Miles were 9:03, 7:43 and 7:50. Leg was stiff and a little sore, but a couple rest days should hopefully help.

  10. RUN
    alright Wallington 4.21 mi 00:37 08:43 pace

    Mile 3 at hopeful MP. Miles were 9:02, 8:54, 7:40 and 9:01.

      The training is in the bag. Your leg will enjoy the break and will recover. That's what tapering is meant to do.

      Glad to hear the leg is better! I think my problem is imbalances too. I read the elites in Boulder do this pre and post-run routine- http://www.coachjayjohnson.com/assets/RT_15min.pdf Been following it this week and it defin helps.

      Tom, this is great, thanks. My doc also have me a list of hip/glute exercises with resistance bands to do twice a day. It feels great to get an answer as to what you're doing wrong, and it feels even better to actually work on improving it.

      Have you really? That's great to hear. That's exactly why I plunked down $130 for them. It's also cool that it's the name of my running club :-)

      Yup, a buddy says they took away 8 weeks of heel pain in 2 days of running and he's run a few sub-3 FMs in them. Says while they are expensive, he got 1,000 miles out of the last pair, so the investment is worth it. I broke in a similar pair of maximal shoes on my birthday run, the Skecher GRUs, and use them for easy/recovery runs, much easier on the body w/ all of the cushioning. Hopefully they work out for you!

      That's great, Tom. I need to hear stories like this. I've already had people make fun of me for buying "platform shoes." All in good jest, of course. But so far, I love them :)
