<i>Very</i> light week for me last week (had outpatient surgery) - just a 5k race. 25:50, not as well as I would have liked, but it was pretty hilly and I made a few tacticle errors. Now I've got a baseline reading for VDOT which I'll use to set my training paces. 18/55 shcedule starts next week!<br><br>
Getting back into it tomorrow with a short (2-4 mile) run to get my toes wet and see how recovery is going.

My peroneal tendon finally stopped hurting and I got in one run last week (5.66 miles in 1 hr) and some cross-training.<br><br>
This week is a very light week. Slowly building up the time of my long runs in preparation for Surf City on 2/3.<br><br>
Last Week<br>

<b>IncPete</b> - I don't typically crosstrain that much and was doing so because of the tendon issue. I will be running 3-4 days a week and XTing 1-2 days a week until my next marathon.<br><br>
I went for 3 this morning and got soaked. It warm, so it wasn't too bad. <img alt="smile.gif" src="">
Love that quote kc. You're gonna do great!
Our very own kcwoodhead is probably finished with Houston right now, but active sucks balls and I can't get any splits or anything for her. <img alt="sad.gif" src=""> Can't wait to hear how it went!
<b>Update</b> - She reached the half at 2:11:11 (sweet!!!!) and the 30K at 3:10:49. She is definitely going to PR way big today! <img alt="smile.gif" src=""><br><br>
Ok, I gotta go out and run...
