      That's a great run! You should be really proud of yourself. Especially for someone who doubted that she would run. Great job....but never say never! lol

      you did 20 miles and you can be very proud!!!! sorry about the hammie. I always thought it was my hamstring and realized it was sciatica. If you get a massage go to some one who does active release or sports type massage. also gently stretch the hamstrings..

      Thanks for all of the support.

      Debbie -- I actually have sciatica, which is part of the problem and why I ended up hurting my hamstring. I ended up alternately my gait to compensate for the sciatica and really messed up my hamstring in the process. I'm going to a place that has sports rejuvenation massages for pre- and post- big events, like marathons. Hopefully, I feel better soon & after the marathon, I'll be back to doing all of the fun exercises that I learned in 2 mos. of physical therapy!

      Well, I didn't do any of my training runs all week because I was feeling so run down. So, maybe that was part of the problem. Maybe I was too well-rested and could've benefited from my shorter runs earlier in the week. I am going to try to re-motivate this week and see how things go.

      I had my Garmin lock up right before the Jersey City Half Marathon, very frustrating! I just let it sit and after it was totally discharged I recharged the battery it was good as new. I emailed Garmin and asked what was up but didn't get a response. Good for you for not letting it interrupt your run!

      I put it on the charger when I got home and it apparently was recording my workout the whole time. Of course, I didn't know that until an hour after I got home and the looked at the watch and the timer was still on. So, I still have not idea what my actual numbers were, but I still completed the longest run of my life today, so I'm happy!

      Hope you feel better! Last year, the PDR was the first time I had ever run a half marathon, and I felt the same way the week after...my legs were shot, and I actually felt sick with the flu or something most of the week. I didn't even attempt to run 7 miles that week though....so, A for effort. :)

      Thanks. The PDR was my first half last year as well and I remember being beat up, but not this badly. I am going to try and motivate for the week ahead because I have to get back on track -- less than 2 months until my first full.

      I ran it last year and it was my first half marathon. I felt miserable, but I was proud that I finished it. Since then, I have suffered through and recovered from a hamstring injury and although my pace has been slower than before, I have been feeling good on the long runs. I'm using this as a training run for the Philly Marathon, so I'm hoping for a good run! I'm optimistic!

      wow that is a fast run. cooler weather really does help. our coaches are warning us to stay on plan and to not try to push longer or faster with the cooler weather. people are starting to get hurt at this point in our marathon training. I don't want to be one of them but I always feel so much better running in the cooler weather is it hard to resist going too fast or longer then planned.

      Yeah. I have to be careful. When I trained for the half marathon last year, I ended up pushing myself too hard and developed a severe hamstring tendonitis. I completed the race, but I was sidelined and in physical therapy for months afterwards. Lesson learned.
