TITLE: Inconceivable? AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: October 04, 2009 10:11 AM DESC: ----- BODY: I just finished by biggest week of this marathon training season (48 miles) and the longest long run (22 miles). I feel good. My time this morning surprised me, about 10 minutes faster than I had planned. The week went well, and I'm ready to taper. Two years ago, it would have been hard to imagine being so pleased with this week and this run. One year, or even nine months, ago, it was almost inconceivable that I could ever do this again. I'm one the road in Muncie, Indiana, this weekend, which means I did my 22 miles on the Cardinal Greenway. It also means that I face eight hours in the car driving home today. That may be a bigger challenge for my legs than the run itself! -----
