The second week of recovery went well. I got a couple runs outside. Today we did our run on part of the paved trail in town.

I noticed that last week I crossed the 1,000 mile threshold for the year! I only hope that my mileage stats just keep improving in the coming years. I also updated my Chicago Marathon post with some of the professional pictures.

  1. Yep. I don't have good records when I started the first few months in 2007, but my total miles since I started recordin is 1,944 miles, with a 1,000 of that from this year alone.CJ


  2. Eeekkk, I almost forgot to say how much Iloved your pictures from Chicago (stupid computer at work won't let me comment). Hope both of you are starting to feel the leggies coming back. I'm sure you are itching to get out there and race a few shorter ones before winter sets in (or on the other hand if I would have ran a marathon I am pretty sure I would be down and out for all of the winter).


  3. YAY! I'm so proud of you! I'm so close to that 1000 mile marker too! I probably would have already crossed it had i not been hurt during CM training! Your doing fantastic girl!!
