1 More Mile - 2012 Edition (Read 1450 times)


Blaine Moore (MM#2867)

    2 digit days start tomorrow!

     

    Got 9 and a quarter in this morning (and made an announcement midway through the video - first time stated publicly), but so far I think my favorite update is from Wednesday when I did 7 miles barefoot on the beach, and that's mostly because my wife provided some great bonus footage for the end of the video update.

     

    This week's contest is for IceSpikes, so feel free to hop over if you'd like a chance to win a set.

      Whew man...that day 7 was pretty risky if you ask me (which you didn't...) -- one clam shell slicing open the side of your bare foot and you're hosed...

          Good work R2W! It is about to get to real work. Hang in there!

            Good luck!  I have had several multiple big mile days in my past.  I love breaking my runs into manageable multiple times a day runs.  I have ran my age in miles the past about 5 years and usually pull off an early AM run followed by a mid morn lunchtime style run followed by an I just got off work run then a final late night just to get ready for bed type run.  I love the desire to fulfill  goal and then the follow through to try and figure out how to manage it without injury.  I am rooting for you!

            Marathons are easy... running one fast is where the difficulty comes!

              Today starts double 2 digits...starting tomorrow, I'll pretty much average a marathon a day for the next 10 days.

               

              Still feeling good at the start of the runs, but getting plenty tired and sore by the end. Hopefully tonight's conference call won't go too late so I can get to bed early; I'm planning on running at Bradbury Mountain with some friends in the morning and would like to see how many miles I can get in before they show up as they only plan on running 10 and I've got 21 on the schedule.

               

              The trip to Memphis was a success. I successfully got in over 80 miles during the 5 days I was gone, including running 83 even at the Germantown Half Marathon (an RRCA national championship race) which won me my age division.  I also got myself on TV on one of hte local stations out there to talk about Camp Sunshine.

               

              Yesterday's update provides a lot of those details (including how a beer at mile 7 saved my race) and also includes the news spot:

                Go Blaine!  You're a beast.

                  Just over a week left...only about 220 miles to go!

                   

                  Started having some achilles issues last night so hopefully that doesn't turn out to be too serious. Getting it taped tomorrow as a temporary measure to get me through the week...it's not so painful I can't run through it, but it hurts enough that if I wasn't doing something stupid and had to get the miles in then I'd take a few weeks to a month off.

                   

                  Surprisingly, everything else feels really good.  Hopefully the achilles is a temporary thing and stops bugging me.

                   

                  I got out to Camp Sunshine today to set up the possible course for the fat ass race next weekend (week from tomorrow) and while the 3.5 mile loop they came up with is actually pretty good, I think I've got a better one that goes through the woods outside Point Sebago and hits the trails. All I need to do is stay healthy so I can run all 31 that day...(speaking of which...anybody here coming? It'll be free.)

                      Achilles has been improving each day, hopefully that trend continues today.

                        This is where it has to start consuming your day - It is easier to do 40-20-40-20  = 120 than 28-29-30-31
