Week two complete and pretty much the way it was written on paper. 28 miles in 5 days.I made up for the shortage on the hill run when we accidentally missed the turn around point on the long run on Saturday. It's nice when things work out like that.

I went back to the gym this morning for my third session with the trainer this week. I followed my trainer to his new gym and finally used up the last of the sessions on Friday at the old gym. I will settle into a routine with one, maybe two sessions a week at the new place with Chris and once or twice a week at the old place on my own. I used the gym extensively during my rehab to cross train but now that I am in full swing marathon training it is harder to get there.

I got on the scale at the gym this morning and I'm down 6 pounds from about 3 months ago. Almost down to 160. I ran my best marathons when I was closer to 155. I was down to 150 at one point but most people thought I was too skinny then. If I could get back there, I might actually be able to see the abs I've been working on beneath the layer of middle aged blubber.

After the workout, it was off to Bonelli as usual for a 4 mile run. I felt really good. Many times on the return trip I'm just pushing forward to the finish. Today I felt like I could have easily kept going for awhile.

Back home, I made breakfast for my wife and me. Bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches on whole wheat English muffins with some sliced strawberries on the side and a pot of coffee.

I can actually see glimpses of blue sky peaking out between the clouds today. We may see some sun for the first time in nearly two weeks.

Great job on the weight loss. And forgive me for each time I misspell your name. I work with another Darrell, but he spells it without the second l.

The Yasso thing seems to be sitting well for you. Cool.

I wonder if Bart Yasso has EPA compliant paper towels, though....

i'm on a road a bunch the next two weeks, so it'll be my turn to try to get runs in like you did.....
