Did 5.5 miles on old Mr. Treadmill.

Shook things up a bit. Alternated every quarter mile between 6:30 and 8 minute pace. Crazy!

Big mileage these days!! Glad you're feeling better.

Thanks Andrea. Still need to be cautious though.

Okay ... so I did about an 8 week brush-up on what you have been up to. With that said ...

Happy Birthday! (Just a tad fashionably late.) :)


I am so relieved to finally know how Jonah survived in the belly of a whale! Much thanks. :)

Seriously, your blog is the best read. I LOVE IT!!! So ... PF and knee doing fairly okay, now? A 6:30 pace every other quarter of a mile is no joke. Looks like things are falling into place, no?

Oh ... and just wondering what expensive orthotics you bought. I'm always interested in others' opinions about those kind of things.
