Back in training.

I may run a full marathon this fall, or it may be a half. But I'm building miles and am starting to do some speedwork. I realize that I'm off to a late start, but I still have a good 4 months to get into shape.

Last week, I ran 40 miles, including a speed session. That's the most I've done in 2009. I'd like to qualify for Boston again and perhaps run it at the age of 50 next year. But we'll see how training goes. I don't want to go back to the 60-plus painful miles each week, beating my legs and back down rather than getting into marathon shape.

An adjustment in form might help out the left quad problem. All of the slow running last year altered my biomechanics which lead to the back problems. I'm hoping to get this nailed down so I can train with a little more confidence.
