Frank's running progress since injuring his Achilles

1. I ran a 30 K. in November to test my Achilles. In rehab, I had not run that distance before the November Helen Klein run. Running time was not great. But I completed the run in about four hours                              
2. My next test of my Achilles was the Jed Smith 50 K. at the beginning of February. My time was improved as I did six hours plus. However, my Achilles was fine. I was tired  the last night miles or so.
3. Last Sunday's run at Lake Chabot was a 20 K.and my time a respectable two hours and a few minutes. It is clear that my speed and endurance are both improving. A big part of that improvement is because of Tony. I train harder with him because he doesn't wait for me. I have to catch him or put it another way-I would like to catch him. Thanks Tony.
