Trying another day at the gym in hopes my knee gets better.

9.6 miles on the bike @ 30 min., 4 miles on the elliptical @ 30 min. and 4 miles on the treadmill @ 32 min. (7:30 pace).

I'm still hoping to attempt a long run (20 miles)  this weekend. I may just load up on vitamin I and attempt it.

Do you really need another 20-miler the week before you race? Maybe 15 or 16 easy miles would give you a good shot at having fresher legs for the half, but still keep you in shape. Then you can hit another long run before cowtown.

Vitamin I always helps!

I'm actually a couple of 20 milers behind in my training. I know it doesn't fit in with my race next week but I consider this race just a bump in the road and not part of my overall goal. Last year it fell two weeks later in my training and was better positioned for me to do well. I've got to get some miles under my belt soon or I will be sucking it at Cowtown!

From Burt on Fri, Jan 04, 2013 at 09:13:01 from 71.216.109.214

Suck it at Cowtown!

Wind, that is.

From I Just Run on Fri, Jan 04, 2013 at 09:17:19 from 67.79.11.242

"Suck Wind" doesn't seem much like a compliment or encouragement... but I think I know what you mean Burt, so thanks! :-)

From Burt on Fri, Jan 04, 2013 at 09:18:41 from 71.216.109.214

You're right. Sucking is only a good thing if you're a vacuum cleaner. Are you...a vacuum cleaner?

I’m not pretending to be an expert, or even somewhat knowledgeable, about running here, so take this for what it’s worth. Put yourself in the best position possible to run your best half. If you can honestly say that running 20+ Saturday will not exacerbate the knee weirdness, and will not adversely affect your half marathon outcome, then fine, run it. My thought is that “running” is not “racing”, and you will gain more racing experience for your marathon by running the best half you can, than by sticking to a training program for the marathon. Again, it’s just my opinion. I have also encountered this problem of having a “non-goal” race scheduled in the middle of a training program for a goal race. I am curious to hear what others do in this situation.

Burt.........Never mind . IJR be smart friend!
