POUNDING MY FLESH - A Quick Update


As PTF has become more and more focused on regional and national politics, I dropped an earlier weekly feature here - POUNDING MY FLESH, focusing on my drive to complete both a half AND full marathon in January 2007.

With a few minor setbacks here and there, I continue to train, and am on track to run the 39.3 miles in Orlando at the Disney Marathon on the weekend of January 6-7, 2007.

To be clear, this is something that I've never done before, and so I don't know what the final outcome will be, but I continue to train and I'm focused on reaching the goal, as Goofy as it might be!

As of today, I've completed 172.7 training miles, with an average of 11.21 minutes/mile. That pace is fine, as long as I finish the race, but it means that for the marathon, I'll be running for almost five hours. That, after having run a half-marathon the day before.

Obviously, I'd like to shave a few minutes off my pace between now and January.

The goal, though, is to finish, and so as long as I cross both finish lines, I'll be thrilled. I'll continue to post updates from time to time on my continued progress.

    J'ai couru ce marathon en 2003.

    J'ai un plan pour finir le demi et plein marathon ce week-end - je porterai des bananes sur mes pieds, porterai quatorze oeufs dans des mes poches, et penserai des pensées françaises idiotes le temps entier.
