  1. RUN

    Wow.
    This was...draining.
    15 seconds/mile off goal pace was the ask. I delivered right in the zone (7:30-7:45/mi is the goal pace range).
    I opted for the canal path which has the advantage of m... read more

    Confession:
    I tacked 2 miles on to the 8.
    Coach T told me not to.

    I dunno....... 8 mi 01:04 08:00 pace

    30 seconds off goal pace.
    or 15 seconds off goal pace.
    I guess it depends on if I'm aiming for 7:30/mi or 7:45/mi.
    I don't even know right now.

      While I would love to drown you in practical advice, our bodies react 180 degree opposite to fuel intake. I need to hammer mine with food (every 20-30 minutes) and water (ALL THE TIME) or I fall to pieces. Or, you know, dehydrate in the middle of the mountain wilderness *eyeroll* You seem to understand your body's needs just fine, I don't know if overthinking it right now is going to help. But then I'm not coach T or fast. :-) Just go out there and do it. It's waiting for you.

      I generally run without eating anything, but I discovered that drinking a bit at every other water station and pour the rest on my neck, seemed to make a difference. I always swallow air, then suffer for half a km before I am able to burp it out though. And I tried the dried fruit and it did seem to make a difference. But if I eat gels, gag, they make me so nauseous.... no matter how I tried to train to eat them, it never worked. Anyway we are all different, but it's good to practice.

      I always run with (and drink) water - all year round. On (very) long runs, especially in the summer, I take S Caps regularly. I never have problems with cramping or dehydration during races. If you feel water sloshes in your stomach, just drink it in small sips. Not drinking is suicide.

    Took it nice and easy out there. Rainy, slushy, icy. It seems pretty cruel to be wearing my spikes in the middle of April, but what are you gonna do? Cry about it?

      Looks like a great run even though it may not have felt it! You’ll be feeling more yourself if you do a little less while the immune system is still on the up and up. Kudos for the efforts while still healing!!

      After reading Allen's comment, I had to laugh. I am imagining you honking back at the big birds. They sound like definite a**holes and I hope you didn't slip on the green droppings. The St Patrick's Day race used to go through a section of paved trail that was dangerous with all the goose poose. Anyway, good hill work!

      Welcome back to the land of the living ... well, running! Glad you're ok. On my run this morning I passed a street sign that I thought said "Delores". I was totally going to take a picture for you. But it turned out to be something boring that I've already forgotten!
