Not a bad week. Rejoined the marathon training group and found that I am right there. As with others, my recovery and lack of soreness amazes me too. Well, I best not complain about it!

The groupies did either a 5km race or a 2-mile time trial this week and I joined in. Now about 14 weeks from marathon race day, this was an early season test to determine current fitness. We took our performance and plotted the result on Table 1 of the VDOT Chart to determine training paces for the next phase of training.

Hey Lloyd - it's good to see that your training is going well. I have been taking it easy for the past few weeks but I have a marathon next weekend. I am just running it as a fun run so we will see how it goes.

It looks like the marathon training group is in good hands. I am a big fan of Jack Daniels.
