Looks like I'm right there with you cray. I did 11.75 in 1:45 on Sunday. Also, I think I figured out my problem with my leg/knee. I was reading that if you have weak hips it can cause your form to break down as you run and lead to those injuries. I've started doing exercises to help with it and so far it seems to be working.
Yeah, I really need to get in some core work and lifting a couple of times each week. I think that would help to some degree.
We would really love to go sub 4 hours, but I've never run longer than a half in my life. I'll be really happy if we finish under 4 hours, but I think under 4:15 might be a more reasonable expectation and I would still be satisfied with that.
practice the turbo crap move at mile 18 - or anus strength training so you don't become a famous reddit star at the finish line.

Yeah my knees were aching pretty fierce when I was done. Took two Tylenol and a couple hours later the pain is pretty much gone. The one thing that I noticed since I've been running so much is that I'm not nearly as tired after the long runs as I used to be.
Good job. Far better than my 16 miler went over the weekend. I totally bonked with about two miles to go. I shuffled through those last two, but it was miserable. I need to add some calories for the next one.
So the marathon is this Sunday. I haven't heard from Cheesey in a while, so I'm not sure where he is at in his training. The furthest run I completed was the 18 miler a few posts up. After that I got sick for a while. I was able to continue running but not get up to the 20 mile mark that I wanted to before the race. In any case, I'm still shooting for a 4 hour or less time. I have a very good feeling about being able to complete it in that time.

Go get it man! You'll do fine, don't sweat it.
I'm a little pissed/depressed right now. Finished off a 64 mile week, then the next day I go on an easy 6 miler and start getting some weird pain in my right knee. Bad enough that I couldn't run (I can usually run through anything.) Taking a few days off with lots of ice, motrin and rest, but of course I'm imagining the worst case scenario.
Hopefully Ill take the first part of this week off and be able to do my last 10/20 mile weekend this saturday/sunday.
one weld pic later and a Flex bought buy your wife and "zero fucks given" and you talk mad shit.
