    Hi everyone,

    It's been a while since I looked in here and I'm happy to see Don, Eric, and Paul are still around. Let me quickly update you on where I stand. After a career year in 2007, I was down for a lot of 2008 due to a back problem. Some outpatient surgery in May cleared most of the issue and I resumed running in July. I ran a marathon (4:08) in November.

    2009 was a sporadic year of training as my Mother passed away in April and we bought a home in Florida USA in May and I spent most of my free time getting our house in Kentucky USA ready to sell. My wife & dog moved to FL in July of '09 and I made 3-4 trips here (800 miles) during the rest of '09. Sometimes I drove and sometimes on a plane. The house sold in Feb 2010 and I moved here for good. I now live about 40 miles from Eblues.

    The training here took some adjustment of course. I have very few hills and what I do have are small. Also, the summer heat & humidity is intense. I'm doing my best to train for the Miami (FL) Marathon which is on 01/30/2011. I keep getting saddled with minor setbacks. I guess it's old age catching up. As of now my long run stands at 15 miles. I have 4:00 as a target time and last Sat (11/06) I did an 8 mile MP run and averaged 8:43. Unfortunately I haven't ran since due to severe pain in my lower leg. I gave it a week to heal and I'm heading out this A.M. for hopefully another 15 miler.

    Let me hear from you people.

    Ray,

    Good to hear from you and good to see you are still running.

    Injuries take longer to heal as we get older. Little niggles we used t 'run out' now need to be treated with care. I hope that your injury heals quickly.

    I have focussed most of my efforts on the email traing program as most people seem to buy that for a plan although people still buy RunCoach.

    I still run 5 or 6 days a week although I also mix it up with a bit of gym work and some treadmill intervals.

    Gook luck for the 4.00 marathon.

    cheers

    Paul

    Paul, so glad you're still active in the sport. I know folks have pestered you for an update to RunCoach but I'm perfectly happy with it the way it is. Being able to upload directly from a device (such as a Garmin Forerunner) would be nice but I casn gladly live without it. The reports & graphs that RC does are invaluable.

    Ray,

    Thanks for the poitive comments.

    I d on't mind people reminding me about an upgrade as it helps to put focus on RunCoach rather than other things

    All the best,

    Paul

    Allow me to update my post from last November. With much difficulty and not ample training, I did complete the Miami Fl (USA) Marathon on 01/30/2011. It took me way over 5 hours but I escorted a fellow runner (a 265 pounder) for the first half so it was fun.

    I'm now training for a 5k on Labor Day (09/05/2011) in which I'll go toe-to-toe with Eblues. At his present condition, he's probably 22:00 capable and my most recent 5k was 24:00. I have some work to do throughout the summer.

    Ray,

    Thanks for the update. I was wondering if you are still using your Garmin.

    I recently succumbed and purchased an iPhone. I am testing the Nike+GPS App. This uses the GPS and accelerometer (to measure footstrike). So far it seems very easy to use, log and upload runs although a little basic. Allows me to take one device when running.


    These multi-purpose smart phones seem to have an App for everthing.

    cheers

    Paul
