Lateral Meniscus?

Hi - Just a short update.  Well, looks like I acquired a sore knee from a difficult trek/trail run.  Its only been a few days and my knee feels pretty good!  Good enough where in my younger running days I would have been out there running already.  Nowadays, I wait.  I'll take another week off and rest it, ice it, and do some stretches.  I'll get back with it next week.  I'll stay on flat courses for a while too.  I'm just happy this was not a serious injury.  It is truly amazing that I still get so much out of running.





"Peace" Long May You Run

    xc,

     

    I bet you could start back today if you ran real slow on a nice level track, as I do.

     

    I am doing a lot more mileage these days than I thought I could, thanks to inspiration from Rich in NH and the others here.

     

    A couple weeks ago, I did a total of 7 miles and Rich did 70 miles--ten times my mileage. Last week he only ran two and a half times my mileage.

    I'm a dark horse, running on a dark race course.

    I've been running around 70 miles a week in an effort to qualify for Boston.  I've never specifically trained to run a marathon that fast, but have run marathons in the past without getting closer than 11 minutes of my qualifying time.

     

    With times that far off, I knew going into this training cycle I'd have to train harder than in the past, hence the increase in miles.  My goal marathon is just over 3 weeks away, so my high mileage is finally winding down.

     

    And I think it's neat D.H. has raised his own bar just a bit, it's what makes us better runners.





    Enjoy life, this ain't a rehearsal...
