70 Minute Run – Hammy still a bit sore

So tonight I had a 70 minute run in some decent heat,  86F and humid.   The right hammy is still not 100%.  I am “aware” of it but it is not altering my stride or causing me any pain.  That said I was thinking about it each step so I am clearly not where […]

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 […]

Revolutionary Run – A Final Test in Brutal Conditions

http://connect.garmin.com/activity/337366272 So the plan had my final pre Maccabiah race as the Rev Run which is a 10K in Washington’s Crossing.  I chose this race even though I hate it.  It is not well organized and the race is run by the local business association not a running club or racing organization and it shows. […]

A Tough Two Days

http://connect.garmin.com/activity/334771410 http://connect.garmin.com/activity/334538148 So the last two days have been interesting ones on my training. All has been going so well that a small set back is not really unexpected. So yesterday’s workout was to be 8 miles with 2 miles at sub 6 pace and the rest of it at a relaxed 7:30 or so. […]

Double Thursday is Twice the Fun!

http://connect.garmin.com/activity/333907628 Today started with a nice easy 6:00am “hunger run”.  This run is done first thing in the am with only water and a cup of black coffee prior.  The pace is relaxed.   I ran my regular CR South HS Loop which has some nice hills. Now that it is summer and school is […]

…. and another great training week in the books!

So another week of training is complete.  Coach Johnny Marino designed my workout week with some recovery runs and 4 days with higher intensity efforts.  Tuesday was a track effort of two by two miles with 800m recovery.  This was run in a progression style with the last 800m faster than 10K race pace.   […]

Good Start to the Training Week

http://connect.garmin.com/activity/32917526   So far a good start to the training week.  Monday was an early morning recovery day 40 minute run.  The pace was mid 7’s and It was another one of those really nice mornings.  No doubt now this is one of my favorite runs.  No pressure.  Just go out and relax and enjoy […]

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 […]

Evening Run – 11 Hilly Miles in a Light Rain

http://connect.garmin.com/activity/323546006 After yesterday’s 1000m repeats today coach Marino had a longer run planned for me.  After a busy work day a nice long run in the very light rain was a welcome escape.  I ran to Tyler State Park and ran roughly 8 miles in the park.  For those that have run there they know […]

An Early 8 Miles on Beautiful Morning…

This morning I needed to have my run done early as Leslie had to leave early for an early meeting.  I got up at 5:15am and the sun was just beginning to break through.  I could tell it was going to be a really nice morning.  I got myself going with a little bit of […]
