NY Marathon Progress . . . 5 wks to go

Quick update . . . I have built up to two 16-milers and am averaging about 40 miles a week again. My body feels strong, no sign of the hip injury. The tight Achilles and plantar fascia are much better. I feel strong aerobically and am seeing a little increase in speed, but still running slower than I’d like.

My focus is still on rebuilding mileage and running (not racing) the New York Marathon. But, I’m definitely starting to think about what marathon to do to race for time in the near future, especially as my friends prepare for St. George and Portland next weekend and Chicago the weekend after that. : )

  1. You’re an f***ing machine. You’re going to plow over me in NYC, and I’ve been training straight through, albeit lazily.
