    So I decided I am going to go for Boston. My shin is
    recovering from the fracture nicely. I saw an athletic
    trainer and he thought if I do everything right I can get my
    sorry ass across the line.

    So I've been pool running my ass off. I did 2.5 hours in it
    last sunday and have been logging a lot of 1-2 hour
    workouts in the pool. I have been running with the belt. I
    have a body fat of about 5% and can't float for the life of
    me. I have heard some people on the group say it doesn't
    count if you use a belt, but I can't even run without it. I
    find it screws my form up and I end up treading water
    rather than running.

    In addition I am doing 30-60 min of elliptical 1-2
    times/week. I think if I can integrate a little running into
    my regimen over the next six weeks I will have a fighting
    chance at finishing.

    Has anyone heard any stories of people pulling off marathons
    on schedules like this?

    Thanks, Joe

    Three-plus hours of runing on cement weeks after fracturing
    one's shin? Insanity if one ever plans to run again
    afterwards. Or even walk.

    Should have months of pain-free outdoor running between the
    healed fracture and a race to be sure.
