Lorenzo, sorry to hear about the leg. Like you, I'm still stuck on the bench. Well, not completely restricted to the bench as I have been using my wife's elliptical. Can get a pretty good workout in on this thing. Not sure how well it translates to running, but HR zones are hit nicely. Today did a subLT session. Got about 5 hrs over 3 session in this week. Extensor tendonitis much improved over the course of the week, but still have a little soreness lingering if I lift that big toe a few times. Am thinking I have another few days before I can venture out for a 3 mile test run.
MsE, really great news.
As for the rest of you, I'm jealous I can't post big miles and swanky paces!! Great training everyone. It's great to share in the trials of miles and miles of trials.
At present, I'm thinking I may just shoot for a fall marathon. Target time would be sub 3:05ish (or if all the stars were to align on the day sub 3). My short term goal would be another Boston qualifier time this year (sub3:15 as I'm 41). Long term goal will be sub 3 sometime in the next 3-4 years. I think I'm capable, but it will be a close thing if I do it as current PB is just a hair under 3:10.
Marrows, good to hear from you. Seems things are well and your target is the same as mine. I think we can lose another 5 minutes this year!
