I recorded my longest run to date shod or barefoot last Friday. I am focused and training for the fast approaching day of the St. George Marathon. I am a bit concerned about how much downhill running there is so I am picking routes that are uphill out and downhill all the way back home. I am feeling strong and pushing my limits. One week has passed and I am going by feel as to when I will put in my next long run around 18 or 20 miles. I do not want to push this, but would like to see if I can get in a solid 20 at least a week or two before the marathon.
