I ran the Jack Pressman 5k in the Lehigh Parkway on Saturday with no problem from my recent hamstring injury. Actually I think I needed a good run to work out the scar tissue because it feels better than before the race. So with that out of the way I signed up for the 2010 St. Luke'sLehigh Valley Marathon on April 25, 2010. My plan is to start a program of running with alternate walking breaks as promoted by Jeff Galloway, this seems like a good approach for me as I am injury prone if I run too many miles but I have always been a good,fast, long distance walker. I am also working on an alternate yoga routine for no run days. So join me in my attempt to knock off the half marathon and hopefully add a base for the full marathon at a later date.
