As many of you know, last month I managed to have a crazy skin infection and I messed up my knee. Although I did not have another skin infection, I did manage to hurt my knee again, This time I wanted answers and I was going to do anything to get them. I found out that I was simply working out too much and needed to take a break. I also needed to have two rest days instead of one. I also started my new job and had to adjust my schedule. With only one month to go until the marathon, my biggest fear was being told that I could not do it.

Goals For Month six- Long distance, long distance and long distance. Now is the time to get it in a much as possible. I want to be able to run up to 20 miles before the end of the month. This week I am starting with 15 miles. We will see how it goes. If I can just keep my body in check and not injure myself then I will be good!

Here we go!
