Straggling over---didn't realize our last thread got locked.

The good news-- finally got new shoes and love them. Had no idea how much I'd been rolling in the old ones. 11 miles under the belt now!
Also discovered the beauty of KT Tape. Shin splints are almost gone!

The bad news-- too many runs in the old shoes have led to very sore hamstrings on my left leg. Resting until Saturday. Gonna try hamstring taping for a short run. NSAIDS and icing it when I can. A bit hard to ice properly with a three year old. lol

I need to catch up now. Hope all are doing well!!!!

Oh, KT tape, I <3 you. It's been my friend for a long time now and I always turn people onto it. Also, one strip cut into smaller squares (i usually manage 24+ per strip) works much better (and significantly cheaper) than nipple protectors for runs if you run into chaffing issues.

I also ran into the not realizing the other thread was closed, but I lurk more than post

Two weeks ago 18 miler was awesome, great consistent pace @ 36 seconds faster overall than my goal time. This weekend I have a tough mudder race and my main goal there is not to get hurt, nice and slow.

Glad to see everyone is doing well overall in the new thread and things are progressing quickly. Looking forward to the taper in a couple weeks

I'm actually just crazy enough that I'm looking forward to that one the most Down in FL it's been warm the past few days so I'm hoping that holds out a bit.

Hi all! I'm enjoying reading about how everyone's training is going!

I went to an ortho yesterday about my knee. He wants me to get an MRI just to rule out anything crazy but both he and my PT don't think it's really anything serious. I was able to do some leg raise type exercises at PT today and am walking without a limp. I haven't gotten back to running but am hopeful I can soon. I am extremely nervous about the marathon. Both doc and PT think that I should be ok since I have an 18 miler under my belt. I hope they are right. Still not being able to run and less than 7 weeks til the race seems a little nutsy to me. Thoughts anyone?

You are 5 miles longer than my current longest run. I am positive that you can get the miles in as long as you keep your head up, shoulders back, take nice deep breaths and wear a smile. Just head out on Race Morning and think "Relentless Pursuit of Forward Momentum."

A question for Coach or anyone else who has any ideas:

This weekend I did back to back long runs - 10 miles Saturday, 20 miles Sunday. It was rather cold and windy (with snow squalls) both days. I wore the exact same clothes both days-compression tights, l/s tech shirt, wind breaker, gloves and headband. After Saturdays run, I was busy doing "stuff" around the house. Felt no post-run tightness or pain in the quads or hammies. Sunday I had no issues prior to running. After I finished my 20 miles, I had to walk about 1/4 mile to the car. Went home with my thighs feeling numb from the cold and took a long hot shower.

I have not had one iota of muscle soreness since. Whats up with that? Was it due to the 4 hours in the cold and then the hot shower? I had the typical "can't do stairs/sitting on the toilet" pain after my 20 miler in September and my marathon attempt last month. Not that I am complaining, mind you, but am curious as to why this is. Cause if I can replicate it at Marathon Weekend, I would love to since we are going on a cruise right after the race. Any thoughts appreciated!

Compression and cold temps do help, but so do miles and experience. Enjoy it. It won't feel that way every weekend, but you will probably notice feeling better more often than you used to.

First, let me say that I am sorry for all the folks with injuries! Been there, and it sucks.

My long run on Saturday was 14 miles and it was pretty miserable. Snowing lightly, and gusty winds for the first 5-6 miles, enough to blow me around a little and chill me to my core. I walked a little longer on some of my intervals and felt pretty down. I also struggled with some anxiety at the beginning of the run as it was my longest to date. At mile 10 I stopped at a restaurant to use the bathroom and have a coffee, and then it got dark (and was still windy and at freezing). I was cold and damp, and so rather than suffer the rest of the mileage home, I got picked up and drove to the gym where I finished the remaining miles on the dreadmill. Felt good that I kept at it, even with all the temptation to go home, but put in that remaining hour of time for a good total of 14 miles and 3 hours on my feet. I wished that I had kept at it in a way, just to do it in one go, rather than break it up. I did go immediately to the gym and run with no lollygagging, but still I admit to being a little disappointed that I don't have a 14 mile road run under my belt.

This weekend I am pulling back a bit and running 10/5 miles Sat/Sun. Next weekend I am running 15.5/6.5. I have other shorter runs mid-week (tempo runs and hills), and I am cross-training at the gym with 60 minutes cardio + 30 minutes weight training 3 times a week. I'm trying to drop about 10 pounds before the race, yet still eating really well and fuelling myself for runs.

I am super pleased to report that my knee pain that was so acute in October has continued to get better and better and is 98% resolved. I still get some weird 'twanging' sensations in my knee when my gait slips, feels like a tendon being plucked on the inside aspect of my knee, and I still get quite a bit of muscle stiffness and aching during and after runs, but I am grateful to be pain-free!

I am super intimidated by the remaining long runs. 5 more to go.

Also looking for some more advice if anyone would like to give it!

I got really behind in my training due to my work schedule (sorry if you've read this before!!) and picked up at Hal Higdon's Novice 1 program. I started at week 11 and did a long run of 16 miles. This week's long run is supposed to be 12 miles. Since I missed week 10, which was a 15 mile long run, should I do 15 this weekend instead of 12? Is that a bad idea?

Thanks for any help!

You should be so proud that you got the 14 miles in! Great job not giving up and hitting the treadmill for those final miles. You'll do great on the remaining ones, I'm sure!

I think trying to make up miles is generally a bad idea, especially when you're "really behind in my training." Running catch-up miles is a really good way to get hurt. Just stick with the schedule.

Thanks! I know it's usually a bad thing, but since I'm planned to do 12, I didn't know if it was worth it or not.

Had my first marathon nightmare last night. In my dream I got swept!
