Boyden Snow Run

Andrew and I had a great run today as we completed our usual (standard) 17 mile loop at a very easy pace with occasional stops for pics, videos, nature calls, stretching as well as water and gels. My leg held up very well with the current regime of stretching and exercises starting to pay off with a more pain free run. The last miles were still hard as the legs tired but at least the hobble and limp was gone for the 1st time in months. I'm starting to have hope that my real training for Boston can begin soon.

Last week finished off with a couple of easy runs for a meager total of 42 miles. The highlight of the week was a visit to my physiotherapist on Friday all geared up and ready for a run. After getting new instructions and a tape application to my lower back I was off for a nice 9 mile run. It appears that part of my 'problem' has been my running form, because the taping helped 'fix' my poor (hunched over when tired) posture and also took some of the strain off the hams. Now all I need to work on is the stretching and keeping a more upright form when running. Let's hope!

Pushups: completed another intense week (#6, level 2) and will do my next exhaustion test tonite to see where to go next. It's a long grind but I'm slowly working my way up the ladder.

That's it, have a great week and hope you enjoy the video!

I ran about the same number of miles myself, 50% on the long run.

Glad to hear the leg held up. I went back to week 3 and will ramp back up through the final weeks once again. Good luck with the exhaustion test.

It certainly is a long way home when being "entertained" by jokes like that ;)

At least you don't have to worry about hissin' brown snakes, like we do in these 35C temperatures.
