The ups and downs of marathon training

The ups and downs of marathon training ... Monday on "doubles day" during my second run my hamstring tied up down to my calf. Post run I was in pain. Thankfully Tuesday was my scheduled off day. With rest, icy/hot, and cold/hot contrast I woke up Wednesday pain free for a 6 mile run, followed up by a 7 miler Thursday and a dominating 16.5 mile run today. Lots of stretching and cutting out double days for rest of month. Keeping mileage around 52 miles a week. (ZēLUS - This is a great weekly mileage target for anyone who wants to achieve their best finish time.)
