Treadmill Run...
Since I was going to watch the Boston Marathon today, I decided to be useful and at least do it while on the treadmill. I figured I had four hours so my goal was to run a marathon myself in that four hours. This would prove to myself I could at least finish a marathon any day without any notice. It would have been a great confidence builder. I started out on pace and felt things were going great up to about mile 14. At that point my right knee started to hurt and it just got progressively worse and worse to where I was altering my strides. I know I could have banged out another 6.2 miles, even with the bum knee, if I was in a race. But I did not see the use in possibly seriously injuring myself today, so I ended the run. Cardiowise, I think I was at the correct pace. I started 9 flat pace until the knee started hurting, but had to slow slightly. I think 4 hours is a good estimate of where my time would have been. Hammies and quads were great today. I did not even feel them walking up the stairs afterwards. Achilles and lower calfs are a little sore, they will need foam rolling.

Huron River-Haggerty-Savage Loop
Hammies were hurting and right knee was a little bothersome. Cardowise I could have held things for a few more miles probably up to a half.
