Sat 2/27 long run

Long run, 17 miles, in St. Charles.  1 mile warmup, left foot hurt for whole run, but knee strap seemed to help.  Feet were hurtin way before the legs were.  Liked seeing the sun, and last part felt warmer!  Enjoyed the run around Fountain Lakes, good change from the streets.

Thur 2/25

Great run tonight.  5 miles at Fleet Feet Chesterfield.  Tried a pair of New Balance 1064... great shoe, like the gel cushion in the forefoot.  Good pace, mild knee pain, cold wind.  Overall, felt great.  Picked up a patella strap.

Wed 2/24

7 miles (1 short of plan).  Freezing cold and strong winds, even with the sun out.  Pressed for time, but kept a slow pace.  Knee was hurting through most of the run.  Stomach pains for last half.  Glad thats over!

Tuesday 2/23

4 mile route through town.  Just felt crappy and sluggish.  Sun was out, but air was very cold, temps around 29.  Really overdressed with the heavy pullover and tights with warm-ups... really felt exhausted at the end.  Hopefully the ear pain I had is not a precursor to sickness!

Monday 2/22

Cross training day... not very energetic.  Walked around with ankle weights.  Wyatt's school skating night... skated a bit, but cheap rentals destroyed my feet!

Sunday 2/21

Supposed to do 7 miles today, but weather is crappy and wet.  Headed to Rec Plex.... blah indoor running.  Did 5 miles on the track, then took a break and came back to do another mile with Wyatt.  Then swam 600.  Then headed to Olive Garden!!

Sat 2/20

So... half way through marathon training, and just making my first post.

Ran the St. Charles course this morning, plus a mile. Led the way out, felt great. Really pushed the pace on the way back... or at least it felt like it! Damn near sprinting to the finish... what was I thinking, it's not a race! Anyway, 11 miles done.
