Final Training Run in the Books!

So my final training run before Boston here in Bucks County, PA is done. We soon leave for Bean-town and the big race! I believe I have done all I can to train for this. My coach, Dr. Jason Karp, put together a good plan and I believe I did a good job executing that […]

23 Miles in the Cold Rain on the Hills of Tyler State Park Never Felt So Good!

    OK, so here I am writing this post again.  Somehow all the text vanished and I was left with just the photos on this post.  I will do my best to recreate my post from this morning.   Today’s run starting at 6:00am when it was still dark.  It was cold, rainy and […]

Boston Training – New Coach, New Plan .. So Far So Good!

So starting with New Year’s Day I have a new coach and a new training plan for Boston. The reasons for the change were fairly simply. For one, I simply felt like I needed a change. Secondly, Johnny Marino Advanced Sports Chiropractic while an awesome coach, is going through so much, including recovering from surgery […]

Boston Training Week One!

Week one had it all. It started with snow and brutally cold temperatures and ended with temperatures well over 60F. I had to decide on a new training plan and ended up asking Dr. Johnny Marino to help me once again. Johnny has been going through so much recently that I wasn’t sure he would […]

An Early Morning Relaxed 11 Miles – Getting Close Now

http://connect.garmin.com/dashboard?cid=18305526 Today Coach Marino had me run a 80 minute run.  He had worked on my hamstring yesterday and today it felt much better.  I felt a little something but I think that was just soreness from the graston technique he perform on my hamstring.  I had to get the run in early today so […]

Heat Acclimation Run!

  For today’s run Coach Johnny had on the schedule an 8 mile run.  I ran this at lunch to take advantage of the 90F heat.  I have been making sure that I am hydrating and using electrolyte supplements as well.  This seems to be working.  Also being the middle of the day I made […]

A Solid Week of Training

I cut back on the blogging a bit this week as the week was busy.  This still was a very good week of training with 3 harder efforts.   Monday was a double but it was a recovery day with 45 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the evening.   Tuesday was 3 […]

What a Difference 4 Days Makes! This time COLD and WINDY on the Track!

http://connect.garmin.com/activity/317702994 It is amazing how much the weather can change this time of year.  Tuesday I was on the track and it was mid 80’s F with very high humidity.  This morning it was in the 40’s with gusty winds. of course Tuesday was LONG intervals and today was shorter faster intervals right into the […]

Twice the Run, Twice the Fun??

So today Coach Johnny (www.jkmhealth.com https://www.facebook.com/Adv.Sports.Chiro) had me start doubling.  The morning run was an very very easy run with no calories beforehand.  Only a little bit of coffee and water.  It is tough to go as slow as Johnny wants but I am following the plan.  The concept is to use this run to teach […]
