#662- 2 mi run after 20 min ride/bike check
#663- 26.2 mi run after 112 mi bike after 2.4 mi swim (IMMT)
#664- 2 mi run, IT band on right leg very stiff, managed a 11:30 mi followed by a 11 min mi, stiffness worked itself out a bit

Ron, by my count you should be at run 1000 tomorrow. Hope you are still at it. Both you and Brad, hope you get your injuries sorted out. Health is obviously more important than the streak, but it would be nice to see you both stay at it.

IMMT went almost as well as I wanted. I made a few decisions that hurt my overall time, but I came in very close to what I wanted. 10:37:13 was my finish time with a 3:35 marathon. My swim went as expected, my transitions went better than expected. I overhydrated on the bike, it was pretty cool, and I drank normally, when I should have cut back a bit. It was a gamble though, because once you fall behind on fluids, its really hard to catch up, and it was supposed to get warmer as the day went on. I had to make 4 port-o-john stops on the bike, and 2 on the run and lost quite a bit of time. With all the extra fluids my salt got low, and I didn't figure it out until I started really struggling on the second loop of the run. Soon as I started taking my salt on the run I felt much better, and got my pace back down, but I probably lost 3 or 4 minutes over a few miles.

I think I had the fitness to go sub 10:30, just not the experience. Overall I am happy with my performance. And it is actually very encouraging, because I see ALOT of areas for improvement.

Rich - amazing race. Hope you're feeling okay and recovering quickly!

I'll keep running until it's time to stop. At this point, I'm not going to give it up without a fight.

Rich, Congrats on a great race, and marathon time as well. I am still at it and yes today will be day 1000 when I do run. I am going for treatment on my leg first this morning and then hitting the pavement. My 100 miler may be in jeopardy though. I did 6 miles Sunday and then went out for 6 yesterday. I got 2 miles into it and the leg was screaming at me so I turned and headed home.. At the 3.5 mile mark I walked the rest of the way. I have two and a half weeks before the 100 to get better. If I do no make the starting line it will not be the end of the world. At least I am still lucky enough to run every day even if it is not the mileage I would like. Brad if I do make it to the starting line the 100 is up your way in Hell, Michigan, the Hallucination 100. I may go to the regular doctor and get a cortisone injection into the leg to see if that helps.

Rich Great job on IMMT! Great marathon time! Must be all that running.

Great job on making it to 1000 Ron. Sure hope you can make your 100, I think they let you drop down to the 50.

Brad, have you ever done the Dance with dirt in Hell? I did the 1/2 marathon in Baraboo, they put on a tough course.

Thanks all. Put up a race report if anyone interested.

Ron, congrats on 1000 consecutive runs. I guess 3 years is the next milestone? Hope your leg is healing up.

#665- 2 mi - right IT band still stiff, but ran pretty comfortably at about 9 min/mi pace
#666- 2 mi - kept it short again, but felt great, I could have easily kept going. I thought about it as I got back that I had only 2 recovery days since a full IM, and besides some stiffness with the IT band (which really started during my peak IM training) most of the muscle soreness is gone.

I plan on laying off any sort of intensity over the next 2 weeks as I build my volume back up, then it's marathon training time. Got the NYC marathon and would love to manage sub-3. I am concerned about crowds early in the race being in my way and having me have to play catch up, but I will train with a goal of averaging 6:40s min/mi.

I am going to try the Hansons Marathon Method. I feel that I have good base endurance, but need to build up my speed and there is more threshold work and hard intervals in those plans with a bit less volume. I should have a solid 7 weeks of hard training. Not much time really. Will do what I can!

Day 1003, 6.2 miles. I have done 6 miles the last two days with just some mild discomfort. I am feeling good about making it to the start of the 100 miler, just not so sure the leg will hold up for the distance. I will not leave the course as long as I can walk but if I have to crawl or walk with assistance then it will be time for me to tap out. Hopefully it'll continue to improve. I have two more weeks and do not plan to run over 10 miles any day prior to the race. The other day when I did my 10 miler on day 1000 I did it at a pretty fast pace and the leg held up during and after so it gives me hope.

#667 -4 mi after 45 min swim
#668 - 4 mi after 40 min on the bike

Feeling strong. My muscles feel pretty recovered. I have some lingering issues from training still though. Hoping to work them out and will resist the temptation of shortening my recovery period.
