Update

Dear friends, I have been keeping up with you but reticent to comment because of being shelved as a runner. My injury is gradually healing. I have been walking nearly every day at a brisk pace. The Achilles tendon seems to be getting better.....I was really stupid in running those two races so close together....I have to face facts that I am unable to recover as swiftly as I used to recover.
I am waiting for the right time to begin the building back to marathon training shape. Best of luck to all my friends running Boston!!! Peace!

i am glad to hear you are at least able to get out and walk. sure hope your achilles heals 100% quickly!

it's tough to be into running blogs when you are benched - totally understandable.

Mark,

Do what you need to do to heal propery. I know the urge to run is high but the need to get better needs to be more. Do it right and you will be back better than ever.

Keep on resting and you will be all healed and ready to go soon! Take care and I hope you are back at it in no time!!!

Tengo Hambre!

    Man I got hungry while I was running today! I guess I forgot to take in enough calories! It cost me the last couple of miles some disco...
