10 miles on a hilly run through SARA park. AP 7:19

I didn't plan on running that fast. I was just running what felt comfortable and it turned out that way. The good news is I finished the 10 mile run without my calf acting up.

 I now have 7 weeks to train for my marathon. My cross training has obviously helped maintain my cardiovascular fitness or I wouldn't have been able to do 10 miles that fast today, but how do I get my legs ready for the 26.2 mile pounding in such a short time?

WOW!!! Was not expecting to see that!!! That is INCREDIBLE!!!! Right on! :)

Congrats. :)

Thanks Slick...I'm always happy, but much happier when I'm healthy.

Teena, I wasn't expecting the week I had last week either. I don't know how I went from not being able to make it 2 1/2 miles the week before to doing what I did last week. My only thinking is all the stair running somehow helped, so I'm going to keep up with the stairs.

Take care of yourself with all that work.

Who are you kidding Rhett, your legs were born ready for a 26.2 pounding!!!!
