  1. walk
    good walk/jog 2.5 mi 00:30 12:00 pace

    Tried to just walk and went into a little jog for 5 minutes and then walked again and jogged for 5 minutes. Tried to make it a little challenging so I set the incline on 3%.

      Nice spin and good luck with your treatments...fingers crossed for you. Small price to pay the no running part...there will always be time for that.

      I missed this post somehow. Hang in there! I had to lay off of running for four months, so of course when I started again, I had to kind of start over, but it wasn't bad at all. I was able to build up more quickly than I did when I began running--muscle memory or something like that. And swimming is good! I have also heard that aqua jogging is equivalent to regular jogging. You could do that I'm sure. Hang in there!

      Whatever you decide, good luck! Becuz - wow - that is expensive! But if you have to stop running, I am confident you'll be back in shape in no time. Also: comebacks are kinda fun! I think forced breaks from running probably prevent runner-burnout.

      That's exciting that you are trying for #3. I hope all goes well with that. It sounds like you still can run a bit though. That is encouraging and will keep you in a good place when you are able to runner longer. Good luck.

      Starting back to work is ROUGH! (And I find that the fall is worse than the spring!) I go back on Monday, but I've been practicing a bit! My schedule isn't as bad as yours, though. My older child isj in band, so I drop him off at 6:30 a.m. and don't see him again until 6:30 pm! The younger one has to be carted around still! Maybe you could cut out dinner! I tried that once; it was not a popular move. Great job of getting this run in. You can do this!!

      Sounds like a great goal;it is very close to the goal I had when I ran my last marathon. My goal was 4:15 (a 9:45 pace). My training plan had me do the last one to four miles of each long run at goal pace. (The first part of the long run was much slower). I ended up running my full in 4:14:35 (25 seconds to spare). I think tacking on pace runs at the end is a great strategy!
