I have no idea what's going on with my toe. It felt like it had just gotten rubbed a bit on the side of my big toe during that 50K trail race on 12/29. I was on XT only after that because of soreness in my tendon. Then, when I got back to running regularly, I would get some pain on the side of my toe and on the last day I ran, the pain kind of took over my entire toe and felt really bad, so I haven't run since which sucks since I have a marathon in 12 days. <img alt="sad.gif" src=""><br><br>
Sorry about all the treadmill action, but at least it's early on in your program and it'll be warmer when your runs get especially long.

I've been working on miles, miles, miles. I'm adding 1/2 mile to my commute runs each way, and 2 miles to my lunch runs, for 10 miles total most days. Saturday, I intend to put in another 20 miler for my second week in a row in the 70 range (69.5 last week). The week after that I anticipate backing off a bit as I taper for Lost Dutchman.
Hi Nettie,<br><br>
I'm not sure what my goal should be for Lost Dutchman. I don't get to run tuneup races in the 4-6 weeks before that might give me a realistic sense of my marathon pace. My current PR is 3:50 from PF Chang in 2007, and I feel like I should be able to beat that, but I have read somewhat mixed reviews on how slow the course is. I think I'll probably pace myself for a 3:50 for the first 10K and then see how I'm feeling. Hopefully I'll be feeling good...<br><br>
I'd like to rachet my PR down a bit at a time, I need a 3:15...long way to go. Loooooooonnnngggg way to go.
