Dave Ferris Posted May 19, 2019 Share Posted May 19, 2019 On Friday, I managed to finish my final "training" run before the supposed half marathon, which was 14 miles. That's great Joe ! It's always a confidence booster to go a tad over the race distance before the event...unless it's of course a Marathon or you're an Ultra-runner. It's kind of late in the season for that area to have a Half. Which one is it ? I hope it's at least 2-3 weeks out to give you a chance to recover in time. Joe - glad to hear you figured something out for your runs. 63 minutes for 7 miles is smokin' ! It's been quite some time since I've been able to go 9 minute miles. At this age, I'd think I'd need a full body transplant. Still battling the Patella Tendinitis, aka Runner's Knee. I was able to get up to 36 miles this week on 5 days. Just finished a 10 miler in 1:50/11 minute pace. As always, a lotta hills around here. Been hitting the gym pretty intensely this week to strengthen/rehab that knee. So consequently those two 70 minute gym sessions and the 18 mile bike ride yesterday contributed to sort of dead legs today. The knee is better but I still have a ways to go. It's a delicate balance right now between trying to keep up the mileage , yet rest and rehab it.
