AM: easy 5.1 miles around the neighborhood - recovery from yesterday.  The encouragein take away from yesterday's tough half is that I am not nearly as beat up after it as I was after PJ 10miler.  The half was hillier, the pace much moe sporadic.  I def. think its the couple of Quaff beers me and the guys had after! :)

Some more mileage planned for this afternoon - its supposed to warm up to 60 today.

Oh, yeah, and Go Cats!!!!!

PM: about 3.5 miles easy around the neighborhood.  About 60 degrees with lots of people out.  A nice spring day.  My left groin pain sounds like its an athletic hernia from the limited research I've done... :(

PM - easy 4mi. in a slight drizzle and 50 degrees around the neighborhood, no watch - it was about 30 minutes and actually feeling good in the painful spots. Ice and recovery goes along way (when you actually do it)

So, I can't make it to Boston again this year :( 

Change in plans - Carmel Marathon on Saturday instead.  I've run this one the last 3 years, so I am very familiar with the course.  Also, it looks like the last 2 weeks have been a taper anyway.  Probably not as much recovery time from that hilly half last weekend and the hard workout on Tuesday as I would of liked, but, I feel pretty good.

PM: easy 3 miles easy around the neighborhood - 26 min.  Icing and rolling afterward.

Went and rented the new Hobbit movie - awful, just awful

Tough day in Carmel... again. :)  Terrible side stitches after nearly yaking up the gel I had just eaten at mile ten.  My stomach decided to flat out reject anything going in from that point... stopped my watch at 16.3 miles, and restarted after about a 0.5 mile of walking/heaving.

Think the final time was about 3:10-3:11.
