I was excited to run this morning after my good run on Saturday, so I hit the TM again at 1% incline, set it at 8.0 (7:30) and started running. After 7 miles I was feeling good and had to convince myself not to increase the speed. I stopped after 8 feeling pretty good.

Total Run 8 miles, 60:00

The "Magic Tape" (as we refer to it in our home) really seems to be working for me. My foot still feels great. This was also day 5 of wearing the same tape job. I think I finally figured out how to make the stuff stick. I took Smooth's advice of making sure it was dry after showering and Kelli's advice of heating it with a hot pad, mixed it together and decided to blow dry it after getting out of the shower. It really helps the stuff get stuck on there tightly. It takes a good 5 minutes though, so I have to plan on some extra getting ready time.

I watched a replay of the Berlin Marathon last night.  I got all jazzed to get back into marathon shape.  I hope my foot cooperates.

I had time during lunch to squeeze in a quick short tempo run, my first tempo run since before Boston! I did 1 warm up 2 fast 1 cool down on TM at 1% incline. 

1 7:30

2 6:30

3 6:00

4 7:30

I was happy to see that I can still run a 6 minute mile without going all out.  

I'm heading to Belize tomorrow morning, so this my last chance to wish all the SGM runners good luck.  I'll be thinking about you all and hopefully reading your reports if I can get my internet to work there.  If not I'll get the reports when I get home.
