Definite progress

I finished an 11 km training run in 44 minutes today. This is the first time that I've kept up a 4:00 pace over 10 km during training, it is as good a time as during any of my 10k races. Even more impressive, this comes just two days after I completed a monster 29 km training run at a 4:50 pace. My marathon goals are looking more realistic all the time.
