    Puke - the fact that I run is simply a sign of how stubborn I amBig grin.  I love running and I really look forward to my long runs with pleasure.....maybe it's the great scenery and wonderful bike trails here...I just love the outing. I think probably endurance is my strong suit;  that and persevering in the face of discomfortRoll eyes....although I have to say, "it's (usually) not that bad" and I fall back on the "if it's not getting any worse, focus on something else and keep going"  approach. Still and all, it feels really good to have found a physical therapist who can help me improve my biomechanics and my running.

     

     

    you are sounding more and more like an ultra runner.

     

    Hey, great news for your DH and your brother Big grin

       you are sounding more and more like an ultra runner.

      heh...."ultra" for me is likely to be the marathon; but I have no plans.  I'm just enjoying running and feeling my way.

      Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

        woohoo, just gone through half way.

        Also just ticked off 1000 km on my favourite shoes....might see what I can get out of them.  PR is just under 1500 km out of a pair of Mizunos, but only managed 1100 in Nikes previously

          Reaching half the goal mileage at the halfway mark of the year is a good sign, Puke. You can do it! Good luck with the shoes.

           

          I'm close to needing to retire my current pair, but want to get another 40K out of them to round up to 600 miles. Then they're history. for sure.

           

          ETA: Hah! My legs would have none of that! The shoes are in the trash. Worst run ever tonight. I blame the shoes. Sad though since they were The Prettiest Running Shoes I Ever Had.  Gorgeous aquamarine color detail. Looked like something a princess would run in. Discontinued color now of course.

          Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

            It is ALWAYS the shoes fault
