  1. RUN
    good Nice and Easy 4 mi 00:38 09:24 pace

    Got tired of staring at the walls. I'm starting to remember why I run.

    good Union Pacific Trail 5.43 mi 00:52 09:29 pace

    It was 88 degrees and sunny. Here's the conversation I had with my imaginary running group:

    good Loop Near House 2.06 mi

    Running is a lot more enjoyable when it's not 85 and sunny. Nice and overcast this morning. Unfortunately, I was short on time. Finished it off with 100 squats, some push ups, lunges and pull ... read more

    good 4ctober 4 mi 00:37 09:21 pace

    Got rid of 0ctober. Been doing Insanity. On week 3 but felt like running even though it was 84 and sunny. Should have gone this morning when it was 60.

      I've suffered deep and long-term fatigue from running too many races. My advice is to listen to your body and give it a break. You'll come back stronger for it. You don't need to quit running altogether, but it's good to keep the mileage and pace tame for a while after a big race or as needed. That's the best plan for a long life of running.

      keep with your core work and do some cycling to keep your aerobic levels - days off won't hurt too much - do what is fun for you -- also maybe see a Chiropractor or Massage Therapist - my Chiro is like a therapist and it definitly helps

      Trent. Same here. I ran 3 marathons in about 12 months. 4 in under 2 years. After the first 2 I recovered pretty quickly. The 3rd even was OK, but I was dreading the training for the 4th. My 4th marathon was arguably the easiest, flattest course of all the races and I just needed a break from training when I was done. My 40 miles a week has turned into 40 miles a month. I just don't have the snap that I used to. Not sure why. Probably because I'm 45 now.

      Hey, I appreciate the input. I'll be busting out the bike now that the weather's nice and doing some weights for a few weeks. You guys are awesome. I appreciate the well thought out answers.

      Nothing wrong with breaking down the body during recovery mode! Stay true to the training and plan your next marathon…or at least start choosing some type of goal so as to avoid being big time bored out of your freaking mind!

      Thanks Stacy. It's all good. My back hurt quite a bit today too. This is the chance I took when I went for it last week. I pulled a Victor Frankenstein and aimed a little too high. My spirits are up. I'm resting. And I'm looking forward to achieving my dreams.

    Alright, I'm spamming you now. I though I was pretty cool at this juncture of the marathon. Turns out I wasn't cool at all.

    I'm that studly looking guy on the left. I actually look like a runner in this photo. In case you were wondering (and I'm sure you were), that guy on the right beat me by over an hour.

    That's me just a few yards from the finish line. I felt worse than I looked. And I looked bad. If you look closely enough, you can see tears.

      It could have been worse. The picture could have shown both feet on the ground. This proves you were still running.

      Congratulations on completing. I totally feel your pain. I trained big for Ogden and it was terrible. As a result I have barely run a long run since. I'm so sorry for your disappointment. I hope you can pull it together quicker than I did. On the flip side are you walking normal again yet? That course is a beast!!

    Figured out a 10-mile route and took it easy. Didn't look at my watch until the end. Heat got me a bit the last half. It was mid-80s. Feeling confident about next week.

      Ha, totally agree with you. It's not like it's going to be that easy. A course with that much downhill will certainly present whole new challenges that a flat course or one with rolling hills won't.

      A BQ is a BQ! And the most sore I've EVER been after a race was at the Bryce Canyon half, which was an extreme downhill. It tears up your quads and knees! Good luck!
