<p>This is the 40x40 thread for those who run at least 40 miles per week and are over 40. This is a great motivational thread and free passes are given out generously. If you do run a race and post a RR, I'll try to link it in here.</p>

<p>Thanks Dennis,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Easy week for me, mini taper for Victoria Marathon on Sunday.  Should be a fun race at a long run training pace.  (well, maybe)..  Only goals are to have fun and no soreness.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Mon:  3-4 miles <strong><em>- 3.0 miles slow and easy recovery pace, just stretching out the legs</em></strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Tues:  8 miles including 2 miles @ MP <em><strong>- 9.0 miles including 5.25 miles @ 7:35 pace, felt very good.</strong></em></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Wed:  7 miles <em><strong>- 7.0 miles mostly a recovery pace with 6 x 30 sec strides</strong></em></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thurs:  6 miles <em><strong>- 5.0 miles in the am recovery pace, drove to Port Angeles in the PM</strong></em></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Fri:  Travel to Victoria (0-4 miles) <em><strong>5.0 miles recovery pace</strong></em></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sat:  3 miles <em><strong>- 3.2 miles recovery, with Runrwife at her pace.  good fun run.</strong></em></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sun:  26.2 miles <em><strong>- 26.2 miles on my birthday, Victoria Marathon, 3:46:57, ran at a fairly easy pace (so I thought) with HR in the low 150's.  Sun came out about the half way point and quickly warmed into the low 60's.  beautiful day.  pace was very consistant through 30K and I slowed after that with some walk/run the last 5k.  I think its a challenging course mostly hills with very few flat sections (though the hill are not that high).  Sue and I walked about 5 miles that afternoon and evening around Victoria.  It was fun and I'm not sore the day after.  Also got to run with Econo for the first 5K.</strong></em></p>
<p><em><strong> </strong></em></p>
<p><em><strong>total:  58.5 miles<span style="display:none;"> </span></strong></em></p>
