Back in Deadhorse
I've given my knew close to two weeks to stop hurting so decided that once I got back up north to work, I would hit it hard with the marathon training. I did feel occasional twinges in that left leg, but nothing worth worrying about. I did lots of intervals and increased my general speed quite a bit. It's pouring rain and extremely muddy outside so I used the treadmill. I think it does have real value though because you can turn up the speed and force yourself to run faster. So it was a really good 5 mile workout today. I have the Nike Marathon in San Francisco coming up October 14th so my goal is to increase me marathon time considerably over the last few. I have a new heart rate monitor watch and as soon as I figure out how it works I will start using it. I do believe that is the key to increasing speed.
