Did a full 10-miles last night, not too much pain although my right knee is a little sore today. Thats almost a full marathon this week for me, and I will do it before the week is out. I know that doesn't compare with most peoples mileage, but given the state of my right leg thats OK by me. I've only run more than 25-miles in a week twice. Once when I walk jogged a a marathon in 5hrs 38-mins, and the other time when I did my last half-marathon. At this rate theres every chance I might even consider myself a runner by Christmas if my knees hold up.(oh yeah 3x really since I did a marathon at the end of the Longest Day(IM distance) Triathlon, but since I walked at least 10-miles, that doesn't count.
In an email KKW expressed support for my running and scolded me for my atitude. She was right ;-) I don't know why I thought my shoe build-up would make me faster, it hasn't. But it has significant reduced the damage and pain I get from my back and knees after the runs.
IN OTHER NEWS - I've been enjoying swimming in open water up at Pure Austin North. I'm meeting up with a few people again on Friday at 5.30pm to swim. If anyone is racing at Iron Star and is a member why not come along. If you are not a member and are racing and would like to come, I have a few guest passes, get in touch via email, or call me and I'll confirm I've still got one and will meet you there!
On the cycling front - I had been hoping to hear from triathletebigo about starting long slow enduance weekend rides. Out there Oscar? I'd expect we'll be aiming to do 15-16 MPH average, and about between 60-80 miles. If interested, comment here and I'll make sure I let you know when we start!
