10. kept it mostly easy, with a few pick-ups at 6:50 to 7:00. last two miles were 6:20 and 6:18. i logged them as MP miles, as that is the eventual goal. the pace was manageable, but i have A LOT of work to do if i ever want to even consider running a full marathon at this pace.

i finally felt ready to add back in core & weights to the daily grind. probably for the best. feeling the flab.

allie, looking at your picture I don't think there is any room for you to feel flab :). Great 10 miles and awesome pace.

I'm with leandra, what flab? :)

From RAD on Tue, Aug 04, 2009 at 14:27:45 from

flab schmab...I don't think you could have flab if you tried!! You run too fast, you know calories are afraid of speed :)

Nice workout and I'm glad you're feeling good and ready to get back at the grind of it all! I can so see you running a 2:40 marathon, it'll come! Just be yourself and keep working hard.

Allie Great work out, Your not flabby ?? but I know what you mean when you have easy week etc, I call it michelin man feeling LOL I have had to cut my cals loads this last week as injuries prevail but still urghhh.

Even though your legs still probably aren't sore from the marathon, I bet the muscles are still repairing themselves (at least according to what I have read). So the fact that you could do two miles at that pace at this stage is impressive. Hope you don't push too hard too fast (but of course, I'm not your coach :).

Good to see those mp miles up there. Steve has a point. I agree with "where's the flab" comments. GREAT JOB there!!!

From AmberG on Wed, Aug 05, 2009 at 00:14:43 from

Ditto ;)

No flab to be seen! Anywhere on your cute little bod!

Keep eating Larabars:)

You really will meet your goal, you have amazing drive and desire , , , there's no stopping you girl!
