      yeah- just a muscle strain. not a serious injury, but it needs more rest, massage, rolling, etc before It's good to go. Totally worth it. That's what race day is for- to take your body to its limits... and beyond.

    alright Mostly Easy. 1 mi at MP 6.7 mi 00:57 08:30 pace

    didn't feel horrible, but after my 1 MP mile, my left hip hurt quite a bit. needed to stop for a while. Then slowly finished it up. The days coming up to marathons are always really scary.

      Ain't that the truth. It's like taper time for IM. The body goes through a quick fixer-upper while it senses you're "taking it easier." It'll be ready.

      I've never had a Garmin, but everyone I know who has one has always said the instantaneous pace is wildly inaccurate and not to be trusted. My Timex Ironman, on the other hand, is never wrong... ;)

      That's a great amount of miles on Hokas! My Cliftons lasted all of 150 miles before they became unstable with all the exposed EVA shedding on the sides... I doubt you will lose any fitness at all by taking a few days off. I've already taken 7 weeks completely off running this year, and it has kept me in the hunt, with PRs at all distances...

      Personally, I am not a fan of the Hokas (yet). I had the Cliftons. They are definitely good for reducing fatigue during a run, and I liked that on road - I could definitely go faster, late in a long run. I did find they made my knees ache more over the long term, which worried me. And on trail, I cannot stand them, because I felt I would twist an ankle at any moment, on any off-camber stuff, because they are so high compared to the shoes I'd normally wear...

      they always do. :) My old best running dog Ben, a 13+ year old rescued border collie, only is interested in running a mile or so. He used to run 20 without an issue and want to run more. age is a bitch. he's also deaf now, so I have to give him hand signals instead of voice commands.

      I had to look back on your posts to see what you are recovering from. Looks like a 50km run?! Wow. Great job Morey. I'll have to go back and check on that recap. Hope you are feeling back up to snuff soon. The bread sounds great!
