Started training for the San Francisco Marathon, August 3, 20008 runsfm.com. I have been on a shorter program than the one for the Long Island Marathon. Last week ran a 13.2 run (half marathon) to East Rockaway Inlet. Last Saturday (June 28) ran from my home (Rockville Centre) to the Atlantic Ocean (Long Beach). Suffered extreme knee pain after the 14 mile mark and was pretty uncomfortable during the 8-13 mile mark. Had to do much walking on the return journey but made it safely home. Here is a map of my route - RVC-Long Beach.

Ran 15 miles today on the usual loop course 3 times. No pain! Will practice on hills this week and do a 20 mile long run next weekend.
