Miles:
10413 total / 1008 in 2016
Goal:

2015 was about speed, but 2016 is distance and fun: I'm running the Boston Marathon in April & my first ultra in June! Still hoping to do the splits again.

      Luna - I thought of that! I rarely do any distance race more than once, because part of the allure for me is to get to run someplace fresh and new. It's not all that easy for me to get out there (right now it is due to the lack of work thing) so I guess that's a good thing. It gave me some confidence though. This is new territory for me and that's always a bit scary.

      Nice run Kim! The shift from how fast you go to time on your feet is a hard one to adjust to. Considering we mostly run for time it is harder to shift the focus to just "finishing" the longer miles. You'll get it and you'll ROCK the Ultra!! :)

      What goal are you working towards with the walking...the ultra or doing the splits? You know, I cut back a bit on my calories and it seemed to knock me out too. I didn't think about the correlation between food and energy. It's obvious, but I just didn't think of it.

      He's doing great on this diet in terms of strength gains, but it's horrible for running. He's a lifter that runs sometimes, so he's getting out of it what he should, but he gets frustrated when he runs now. I told him he needs to tweak his diet a little around the days he runs. I think he'd be good then!

      Gary- still some of the sciatica/piriformis/crud going on. Running doesn't seem to make it worse though. I've been sitting on a tennis ball when I am in the car. Doesn't feel great while I do it, but it feels better after. Otherwise it realllly hurts to get up after sitting!

    The guy who pulled up the mat next to me somehow made yoga stressful. Just a lot of grunting and jumping around, even though he was doing yoga, too.

      I like doing a little something after I'm done at the gym, but mostly it's at home. A lot of time's the studio/classroom is empty and I go in there, but the gym was pretty quiet so I grabbed a corner. It WAS quiet. This is the same guy who runs on the treadmill for 3 minutes and has to jump off and run to the bathroom. It's not necessarily funny (it happens!) but it happens EVERY time. I call him the Guy Who Poops on the Treadmill.
