17 after an 11, man oh man you are tough! I take the day off and x-train when I've got a long run coming.

Nice miles, Slick. I'm scheduled for 16, but might add an extra 1 or 2, then taper time for Cowtown.

2 weeks and counting....

RAD - After Cowtown my schedule of running is just getting started. My training schedule is built on running 15 or 17 races in 2011. My goal is to run my races in a conservative fashion so as to recover quickly and be ready for the next race in short order time...

Yea Marc! Yes the Cowtown is coming and it only about 13 days and 20 hours away. I've got my bags packed and I'm ready to get there...

Smooth Baby, I'm in taper?

You are blowing my mind!!!! Seriously, you are so on top of it!!!!

Here's to a wonderful long run! :)
