    I'm back and ran a PR 1:50:10. That breaks down to 8:25 minutes per mile. I am still shooting for sub eights by the end of summer. Maybe I'm dreaming but it motivates me.

    Thanks Jendf.:)

    Any effective remedies out there for Achilles tendon soreness? I know I should rest it but I don't want to lose fitness by laying off too much. :(

    I wanted to comment on this before, but forgot.

    That sounds aggressive. Good luck dude. Post back if you break it.

    Thanks. I have successive runs of 8:47-8:35 and last week of 8:25. I'm going the right direction but a long way to 7:59.

    Great job, you finished in the top 11% out of 15,663 participants.
    That sounds pretty good to me! Take care of the tendons. Maybe
    if you work out on a stationary bicycle for a few days it would keep
    your leg muscles moving but take the impact strain off your Achillies
    till the soreness goes away.

    squats and romainian dead lifts would be better....
    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.
