Technology first. You must check out this post on the Ma Cherie weblog. She tells you how to use Firefox's NewsFox to check for weblog updates. I switched from Explorer to Firefox (and incidentally, am no longer finding various cookies and spyware thingeys on my computer anymore -- THANK YOU Firefox!), and got NewsFox like she said. What an amazing difference!!!
Ok, on to running. I'm still doing rehab on my hamstring. I got a foam roller (thanks Lobo!) and have been using it to break up any adhesions inside the hamstring. Also ice is my friend. In the past week I've only run twice, and each time was really slow and careful. Yesterday I did 4 miles, and was able to push my pace a little. Hamstring didn't hurt afterwards, which is a very good thing. So I'm moving in the right direction. But I think the marathon is out of my reach this time. Remember my mottos: Don't be stupid. and Do something! ?? Well, the marathon is only 12 weeks away, and I don't think that's enough time to build up the miles to do it. Lobo -- if you're reading, what do you think? The qualify for Boston goal is out of the picture for sure. I'm not trying to be pessimistic, just realistic, and even though qualifying for Boston would be great, it's not worth it at the expense of my long-term running ability, you know? I tell you, it's hard when your mind wants to go go go and your body is not cooperating!
