Rebuilding Time

Unbelievable!!!!! The weather for November is amazing! We are in the 70's today!! Sunshine galore and a sweet South breeze! I delight in this weather!
So, yesterday I went golfing with my Buddies. I only had time for 11 holes, I needed to be with a member of the church and their family as they have lost a loved one, the family is doing quite well considering the circumstance.
I'm in a rebuilding time. I felt so good today on the roads despite one area of persistent soreness from the last race. I will gradually rebuild to 30 miles a week and hold that for a couple of weeks. I really need to pick a marathon! I am leaning towards Little Rock in March. Anyone ever run that one? If so what do you have to say about it? The 21st of this month I am seriously considering running a HM. Why not?! The bod's feeling pretty good. The heart and lungs are feeling normal....why not try to bust the 1:55 barrier?
Totals-3.52 miles/ 36:15/ 10:17's- Hope all's well in your neck of the woods. Peace!!

Go for the half, that sounds fun! I've always thought the LR Marathon looked fun even though it's so far away! I worked with teachers there two summers ago and it is gorgeous and the people are so nice!
Happy Rebuilding...I like that phrase.

have you read the reviews on marathon guide about little rock? that's just my go-to website for finding marathons; there are always reviews on the races.

This weather is unreal! (We are having the same.)

I think this will be a great time for you to run a half and capitalize on all of those miles you've been running.

I was just thinking the same thing the about the weather. A month ago I had put away my summer running gear and got out the winter stuff. I had to get the summer stuff back out again the other day.
Have you looked into the OKC Memorial Marathon? Of course its on a Sunday so that might not work with your schedule.

Little Rock sounds like fun. Sorry I don't know of any in the early spring to give you ideas. Go for the half marathon!

Seasons are good
