  • Start

    Day 154 I finally started my formal training today. I pulled out a 16 week schedule I found on 50 miler. I am couple weeks behind so, it will make it 14 week plan. I looked at the mileage I am supposed to be doing. It is not looking good. The summer was supposed to […]

  • Day after

    Day 147 Actually it is like five days after but still it feels like a day after. I ran for the first time. My soreness has gone down. I ran 7 miles today. After 3 miles fatigue set in. It was a great feeling. Kind of. It was like an old friend. It brought back […]

It feels like something is wrong with the joint socket or one of the nerve/muscles is a bit off. I could locate that particular muscle with […]

  • Long run

    Long run

    I am more tired today than last weekend when I did the marathon. I went out for a long run today. I wanted to do a three hour run. I started at 1:30

  • Relaxed a bit

    I had another run last night, a 4 miler. It was a relaxing pace. I ran with two other people. We were not in a hurry to go any where. We started early
