Marathon Maniac #957

    For those of you who are new, this is the 40/40 thread, for those who are over 40 years old who run or aspire to run 40 miles/week. We give Free Passes to those who come really close or try really hard... Smile Okay, gang, I think I have most of the totals in from last week. If I got something wrong, let me know.
    Twocat67.59 All that running and still whips up a might fine macro.
    Perch57 A 20-miler and an 18-mile double – nice week.
    Holly54.451st 20-miler done. Like Twocat, 2 weeks till my next one.
    CNYrunner54 Nice week, in spite of luggage mishap and lots of travel.
    Predawnrunner48 Building up the mileage nicely. I fully agree with your method to forego speedwork during buildup. Now is not the time for injury. Just get to Boston uninjured.
    Tramps44.6 Refusing to give in to the table madness.
    SirWalksalot 43.4 Stomach bug only slowed him a little.
    PeterNC42.4 Keeping it solid until he finds a race.
    Breger42.25 With some tough tempo work.
    Evenflein37 ish Carlsbad Marathon to top off the week.
    Pfriese16.3 Free Pass. Taking a well-deserved rest after the Goofy Challenge.
    PJH Free Pass Recovering from an Achilles tendon injury
    Rgreen Free Pass Happy Birthday!
    Way5yom Free Pass

    Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

                  I'll need a big Free Pass this week. The mileage will be low as I've been sick and I have the Miami Half Marathon on Sunday. (I hope I can run it ...)

                  "Some are the strong, silent type. You can't put your finger on exactly what it is they bring to the table until you run without them and then you realize that their steadiness fills a hole that leaks energy in their absence." - Kristin Armstrong


                    I won't be posting for a couple of weeks. I'm on vacation beginning Friday (heading for some sun). I hope to start running again this weekend, but my sports therapist has advised me to go slowly. I'm hoping I can rehab while I'm away and come back fully healed and ready to resume my training program then. Keep up the great running everyone! Good luck with your training! PJ
                      I am traveling so this is likely to be just a place holder until I return on Sunday. Fortunately, Pfitz has this as a relatively low milage week since most of it is likely to be on a treadmill.

                        Traveling, resting, conferencing, etc... this will definitely be a recovery week. That's ok... if Holly's doing back-to-back 20 milers (really Holly? I missed that last then I can slack off. Boston's still a ways off girl, don't hurt yo'self.
