I'm hoping for some sage advice from you all.
(1) My marathon recovery time is officially over. Instead of increasing my current mileage by 10%, would it be OK for me to increase it by a little more, so that it's closer to where it was one month ago? To be on the safe side, my long runs have been fairly short during the past month, with the last one only 12 K. Both of my training programs want me to be doing quite a bit more.
(2) A while back I posted a question as a follow-up to my MyAsics thread, but I suspect it didn't push my thread up, so I'll ask it again here. Can somebody explain the orange circles to me?
