25 weeks to taper

A couple of weeks ago, I retyped my marathon training plan adjusting training paces and dates. So far week 1 ended with 12.85 miles (see Saturday's post) with the rest being 'rest'.

Week 2 is upon us and we started with 4.5 miles of recovery running. I went out this morning open to what may come knowing Saturday's effort on such poor training was going take longer to recover from than I would like. I was hoping for an hour but only got 40 minutes before my left knee started to hurt and I pulled the plug on the run.

Still feel refreshed but I'll have to ice that knee. I iced it Saturday and by Sunday it was feeling much better. I'll be doing this routine for awhile I imagine as these knee issues always take time to heal up.

I poke along so slowly when I'm by myself. 8:52 pace today with an HR of 135.

4:27 (8:46 pace)

Eric caught me walking home. He was just beginning his 10 miler. Wx cool @ 32F and a slight NW wind. Not that bad really.

Take care of that knee. Are the shoes in good order? Thanks again for coming out on Sat.

Oh, and mad Bob at
makes a good point about turning off word verify to promote more commenting.

What exactly is going on with the knee?! Hope it's nothing too serious?
