2 hours of Basketball, playing against kids 1/3 my age!!!

Yea, another succesful run - with no pain or other issues.  I'll take a short day tomorrow, and be back on track the rest of the week.

2 hours playing tennis with my son - he can still kick my butt!!!

Very easy recovery run, to see if my foot was going to turn into a serious injury or not.  Thankfully, it did not give me any trouble.

I walked about a mile or so at lunchtime on Tuesday, the day after my 24 mile run.  By the time I got back to the office I was limping... By that evening I could barely put weight on it.

The next day it felt better, so I thought I would try a short run on the treadmill... I lasted about 3/4 of a mile and the pain shut me down.

This little episode reinforced to me how important it is to rest the day (or two) after a long run.

I'll try a little longer run tomorrow, and if everything is still OK, then hopefully get back on schedule next week.   The absolute last thing I want to do is propogate an injury, 5 weeks out from my marathon.

Easy treadmill run to try to recover.  Ankle really hurt by the end of the mile.

Rest day....

Long, long, long run today.  First three hours were pretty easy, other than the frigging 20 mile per hour headwind, and 35 degree temperatures....  The last hour and 9 minutes were pretty close to torture, as my legs were TIRED!!

Took a few walk breaks, but I finished that damned run. 

One last long run in a couple of weeks, and it's MARATHON TIME, Baby.
