Another hour on the trainer this morning, still holding out hope that our left foot will allow us to race in Houston in 12 days. I have a revised goal in mind if we can just make the start.

Happy New Year guys.

    Thanks guys. Done feeling sorry for myself as that is wasted energy. If we can run a pain-free shakeout on the 12th we'll race the best race we can. Still plenty of honor in that sub 3 or not.

    Sorry to hear of your pain, Joe. Chin up, though! We often have a lot of random pains that crop up just as we start a taper and they ruin a perfectly good rest. But! They also (often) go away as soon as the gun goes off, and never return. I hope that is the case for you. And! Over-tapering is always better than under-tapering. Always. So! Ice, asprin and comfortable shoes and no stretching it for the duration. You'll be good to go. Trust me, I'm a doctor. Not really, but trust me anyhow ;-)

    I believe we're gonna see each other in two weeks. Many an athlete has got to the starting line after 2-3 weeks of XT.

    If you recall, I had NO plans to run my marathon a couple weeks ago and then decided to head to the start line the day before the race after almost 2 weeks off. I missed my goal time by 10 mins, but I didn't really "go for it." If you DO go for it, you might be pleased with what you find.

    @Mike, I couldn't run across the street tonight if my life depended on it. Not looking good ....

    Joe, I'm hoping for the best for you. A lot can heal up in the 8 days remaining before Houston. I know sitting still is hard though. If it doesn't happen then hopefully you can start to get your mind focused on another big race a little further out.
