Nell - great running when you weren't feeling too confident about times before hand!!
chick - how's the recovery?
minni - i only ever run that amount in marathin training!! You'll be faster than you think in marine corps.
2old - not sure. Think I'm doing a reverse type taper. I don't feel very fast, cant afford to push anything. I ran 7 miles this morning and even though my knee felt sore, think my hammy was worse by the end!! Rest tomorrow and thinking about 9 miles Thursday on the lanes and an interval session Friday. as I fell last week it will make my last run of 21 miles 4.5 weeks before the marathon which seems too long but I've run out of time now!! How did I ever do 2 in 6 days???
2old - I have been in Venice since Thursday and left today!! It's not made for running at all so I'm mighty impressed that you've done 8 miles! I've not run at all since my fall on Wednesday, but by the time I left Venice today I could manage the steps up and down over all the bloody bridges...which was a massive improvement since thuraday. I'm tempted to try and run a mile or 2 tomo and see if I can..
