10 minutes arc trainer- no leg pain

10 minutes stair speed intervals- no leg pain

5 minutes TM at 2% incline very slow- no leg pain until the 5th minute when I got up to 6.5 mph and it wasn't really pain, it was more some tightness coming on, so I decided to stop there before it became pain.

10 minutes arc trainer- no leg pain

Now to see how it feels tomorrow morning when I wake up. If it is good I will try to run a little more tomorrow.

1 mile TM 2% incline- 9:30 Leg pain started at zero and built up to a very mild 2 on a 1-10 scale.

20 minutes stair-mill speed intervals- no leg pain

10 minutes stationary bike.

My leg feels perfectly fine doing pretty much everything except running.  I'm going to be good for the marathon though.  The question is just how fresh can I keep my legs without any true running?

1 hour elliptical

As of today I have finally reached my goal race weight of 152. That was my weight when I ran both my sub 3's so it is kind of a mental thing for me now.  Let's see if it works a third time for me.
