My pelvic strain has been getting better so I decided to go ahead and try my long run for the week. I was concerned that I might have to stop during the run so I opted for the TM. The strain is still very uncomfortable but not inhibiting my running (Note: it did get much more sore 30 minutes after my run, we'll see what if feels like later today).

Since I ran on the TM I was able to control my speed and HR to reflect a better pacing plan.  Comparisons:

Ft Worth Marathon @ 20 Miles: 7:35 Pace @ 163 Avg HR

6 Week Out (from Ft Worth) Training Run: 7:42 @ 159 Avg HR

Today's Run: 7:58 @ 155 Avg HR

Good thing is my HR is lower on this run...the two bads things are my time is much slower and at 20 I was tired :-)

20 miles on a treadmill - you deserve a medal or something. I am glad to hear that your strain is better. It's a good sign if you can run 20 miles.

That is great news! 20 miles on a TM is impressive for even the fittest runner. If it hurts less on the elliptihell then I would add in some longer cardio sessions on that too until you are back to 100%. A re-injury at this point would really be a bummer. I want to see you kick some butt in OKC.

WOW! 7:58 ave is amazing.....especially with pelvic pain. I hope it isn't any more sore today!! Crossing my fingers!

I came here expecting to see how the 2 or 3 mile test run went, and you did 20! I even refreshed the page to make sure it was on the right day. Nice going - pretty good pace since you've had to take a few days off. Once you get back into the swing of things it'll be way easier.

From I Just Run on Sat, Mar 24, 2012 at 12:39:14 from 166.205.142.177

It was a test run. It went 1,2,3,4,5,6......

From JG on Tue, Mar 27, 2012 at 09:40:53 from 71.56.87.5

Wow ... 20 on a TM! The only way I can run 20 is to suck it up & run another 6.2 at the end ... at least that way I get a medal! :)

This is great IJR! Congrats on bouncing back! Sounds like you had a similar experience as me, except yours took a bit longer.
