    10 miles today (2 warm up @ marathon pace, 6 X 1200 (4:05 avg for those w 2 mins jogging recovery)
    I felt fatigued during the workout but I think that is natural - I have been putting in a lot of hours and I can really feel sundays long run during tuesday's track workouts. I may focus on making my long runs on saturdays as time rolls on to try and get more solid workouts in. All that being said I was able to hold it together and finish in consistent splits.
    I go back and forth with the Mp3 deal. I got a sony w series walkman a while back and it worked great for approximately 4 months but is now in a state of disrepair with no way of repairing it. I don't mind not having the music but sometimes it is a good push to get out the door when I am feeling reluctant to run .

    5 miles on dreadmill, to kind of test my fitness with out really stressing my achillies.
    Looks like im doing ok, managed a solid 7:20 MM pace and it felt fairly easy from an effort standpoint. The secret spot is definately making me stronger.
    Happy with that.
    Ill hit the flat trails this afternoon as the rest of the weeek will be rainy.
    I may need music!

    eugh: haven't run since Sunday - part of it is allergies that seem to have become a cold. Part of it is the mrs being out of town and I don't want to leave the kids alone (and I have to start the kid-wakeup process 30 minutes earlier). Part of it is letting my legs rest up a few days. Last night I pinched my achilles just above the heel and it ached for maybe a minute afterward, so it wasn't such an ordeal to sleep in...such as it was.

    Hey, have any of you guys heard of a runner bruising their bone marrow? I know someone with this diagnosis and I found a little on the web, but it still sounds awfully weird.

    Thomas,
    Thats kind of what happened to me, from skiing when I was 18.
    Please advise them to take care of it and take it serious.
    Mine developed into vascular necrosis, which then lead to Osteo Chondritis Dessicans, which is why I need a bone transplant in my ankle.
    I have a nickel size piece of bone in the joint, with the marrow underneath that is dead. not pretty.

    A pleasant 7 miles this morning outside before work. It was finally nice enough (40º AND with no wind to speak of) to get outside nice and early.

    Hopefully it holds so I can get out of the gym and back to running 6 - 10 miles outside before work 3 days a week. There's nothing like running through my little downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods before 5:00 in the morning when the only other people out are other like-minded individuals.

    Jeez AR - was it a repetitive-stress thing, or a one-off injury that just got worse?

    This is extended family (wife's cousin's wife), she's completed a few short triathlons and was training for a half-marathon when this came up. Her doctor put her on complete rest for 6 weeks (iirc) then she started up and not long after it flared up again. She really wants to run, and I'm trying to think up ways to help her avoid recurrences.

    I know you're running but going at it on trails and hills - do you think that may mitigate the issues she's having? I kind of suspect that she's landing hard and probably wearing the wrong shoes, but along those lines I take the wrong shoes to lead to knee problems, not bruising.

    Thanks, man, and good luck with the surgery.

    I did the Go Saint Louis half marathon on Sunday and finished with a time of 2:23. It was my first race ever and the first time I've ever run 13.1. My time wasn't the greatest, but it was really fun not having any pressure to perform.

    Today will be my first run since the half - a 2 miler to test the waters.

    I think the variance in hills and trails is exactly what is allowing me to run (although it hurts alot in general), I also changed from a heel strike to a mid-foot, which helped alot. It was a one off injury, but certainly could also occur from repetition. Its painful shit.
    Im seeing one of the best Orthopods in the US, and pretty much the top for this specific issue in the ankle. Still, I need a donor for the bone (which has to be a "live" bone, meaning taken from someone who just died), it has to be a physical and blood match.
    Make sure she heeds this advice....

    ^ way to go on your first half - thats what got me to really go balls deep into the running thing.
    10 today easy - I let myself fun as slow as I wanted and had a great time. I tracked down some new trails in my area and had a great time.
    3 more tonight to test out my new headlamp/reflective vest in preparation for the leg of a relay race I will be running at night (headlamp/butt light = safety requirement)
    Verdict: running with any sort of anything affixed to your forehead - especially when it is a budget head lamp - is unpleasant. I can see the appeal of a lightweight upscale edition that is less bulky than the one I have.
