After watching the Ing New York Marathon this am I went out for a 12 mile recovery run. The Marathon was simply greatto watch even if it was from a setting position and not at least from the back of the pack!!!!!Oh well my 12 miles is the furthest I've been since last saturday. It gave me great confidence that I will be ready to run the Dallas White Rock marathon in about 27 days.......

My schedule called for a 14 miler today but I felt like I need to do a shorter more difficult training run. So I lowered my mileage to 10 and ran my most difficult hill training course. Bingo-Bango-Boingo, it was a perfect success for this tired old mans ego. Just two weeks after my last marathon and I completed my most challenging course.....I will be ready for the Dallas White Rock Marathon three weeks!!!!!!

Today will be a much earned rest day, the 10 miler was tough yesterday but so worth it to continue my recovery.I can say that this is the best I've felt since the Hoover Dam Marathon two saturdays ago. Seems as though my recovery is coming along very well and with three weeks before the Dallas White Rock Marathon I should be in really good shape for the race. I might even be good enough to compete in my age group. TYI and knock on wood!!!

In keeping with my perpetual taper this year, I ran a easy 5 miler this am in 47 degree clear weather. I will run a 3 miler on Tuesday, a 2 miler on Wednesday and then go into a rest period while I carb load Thursday thru Saturday. Then of course, the Dallas White Rock Marathon is Sunday, Dec 4th, 2011. Be there or be square :) :) :) :)
