Good news and bad news. My goal for the end of 2007 was to be able to run a 14-mile run without getting injured. If I was successful, I would commit to training for my first marathon. The good news is that I completed the 14-miler on a fairly tough course on Saturday. The bad news is that I ended up with an average HR 3 beats over my MAF. I had a dilemma as I could not keep my HR under MAF after completing a hill climb, but I did not want to walk as I did not think that would count as meeting my 14-mile run goal.
Saturday: 14.1 miles , mostly on the Flying Pig course, 12:00 pace, 149 AHR
Sunday recovery run on the treadmill: 3 miles, 10:54 pace, 131 AHR.
Hi Lowgear and Docster,
I had an interesting series of pains that fortunately did not become serious when I switched shoes. I had a been running in Gel Landreths, but switched to Cumulus' about 9 months ago. The Cumulus' felt so good, even out of the box, but I had pains in various parts of my feet and ankles. I backed off on a few runs when it hurt consistently, but eventually the pains went away. I attributed this to the lack of structure to the Cumulus (even though there is not much in the Landreth, either). Anyway, hope everyone emerges unscathed.

My Christmas run...went out to a neighborhood park 1-mile loop that I had not run in a few months. I was a good minute+ faster than last time I ran there.
6.08 miles, AHR 137, 10:39 pace
Thanks to the Christmas gift from my wife (Garmin 305), I can now post a motionbased link!
haha - I think you posted the wrong link, unless you were on my run with me!
I can't wait to be able to upload MB runs to this site
