Yay Spencer! Glad to hear you are back at it. I am crawling back myself, but in a bit of a quandary. June was a bust, an July I was hurt so could only cross train until Mid July. This wouldn't be a big deal, except I'm signed up for the Chicago Marathon on October 9. The puzzle I have been facing is, "is it possible to go from zero base to Marathon in 10 weeks." Well, I'm pretty surprised that the jury is still out. I've been ramping up the long run - two 13s a 16 and a 12. I'm beginning to get some pace back, but even a 9 minute pace feels ambitious these days. If I can manage an 18 and a 20 miler in the next few weeks, a WTF marathon seems plausible. We'll see.
