      Good that you backed off. You have made a lot of progress. Don't jeopardize it now. 7.22 is good progress from where you were, especially with the runs you already got in this week.

      Nice race. I ran a similar race in the last November. I was not able to sustain my easy target pace beyond 25k. Since then, I signed up for two spring marathons & is trying to run sub 4 hour marathon first.

      At least you were able to get to the starting line and finish the race. I know how frustrating it is, after training so long and hard, to have things not go as planned or as hoped. I have had 2-3 that I ended up walking a big part of the last half. You gave it your all, and that is all one can do. There will be other runs and races ahead, and I know that you will have some memorable ones. I always find that my past struggles make the rebound that much sweeter! Stay strong, my friend!

      Fantastic job Mark! You are going to do great next week. There were so few runners out this morning that I wondered if the race was this morning.
