      I don't know.  150?  or 170?  I'll be tapering for a half on the 28th.  I normally don't taper, but this race has an elevation change, is a warmer climate, and I will be at a conference....so jet lag, dehydration and poor nutrition all come into play.  I want to take a little easy the last week before the race.

       

      Oh, and do well in my half.

        Plan says 218.  Yikes.  I know that's nothing for the serious runners, but would be a personal high for me.

         

        With that in mind:

        1) Stay healthy.  Listen to body.

        2) PR 4 miler

        3) Find another tune-up race.  Anyone recommend a good Ohio area 10K - half in late March / early April?

          Ohio half: ORRRC half marathon -

          It's flat, not overly crowded, and not expensive.

            1. 250 miles

            2. 10k PR

            3. Lose at least 2kg  [I was 59.3kg on 1 March and I want to be under 56kg by the time I do the marathon at the end of April]

              What's a serious runner? Big grin

               

               

              Let's see... 41+ miles of racing in the past two days.  If that doesn't qualify you as a serious runner, you may at least have a serious running problem. Wink   Way to get it done in some lousy weather this weekend.

                As my dear mom says anytime I tell her something is her problem (jokingly, of course)... "It's not my problem.  It's my solution." Big grin Had you seen me running the Frostbite 5 in a jester hat, serious is probably not the first word that would have come to mind.

                 

                Thanks for the kind words.  Was a good mileage weekend. Your 195+ mile month of Feb is impressive!

                  Run 175 miles and a 15K PR.  The PR will be easy... never ran a 15K before.

                    Didnt see one yet, so thought I'd start it.

                     

                    Here's my goals for March:

                    200 miles

                    10 mile PR - hopefully sub-1:10 (PR is 1:14)

                     

                    Okay, not sure I'm going to make the 200 miles because I'm going to take an easy week this week and last week was pretty low too.

                     

                    but I did get my 10 mile PR and my sub 1:10 yesterday, coming in at 1:09:41 (well, official time was 1:09:46 but it took me 4-5 seconds to cross the start and my Garmin buzzed at 10 miles just as I crossed the finish in 1:09:41)

                     

                    So I think I'll adjust my mileage  goals to 160 for now.

                     

                    And really I got 3 PRs yesterday since my last10K and last 5 miles in that race were both faster than my PRs at those distances.  Big grin

                      Wow, Jeff, 3 birds with one stone!  Awesome job!!!

                        Hmmmnn I have claimed that one before so I suppose we will let you have them Wink Big grin

                         

                        It is a good feeling when that happens, well done.

                          2. 10k PR

                          1 - Fail.  227 miles

                          2 - Yay!! - 41.39 - PR by over a minute!

                          3 - Fail.  Half way though - 1kg down.  56kg for the marathon looking very unlikely now.

                            I don't know.  150?  or 170?  I'll be tapering for a half on the 28th.  I normally don't taper, but this race has an elevation change, is a warmer climate, and I will be at a conference....so jet lag, dehydration and poor nutrition all come into play.  I want to take a little easy the last week before the race.

                             

                            Oh, and do well in my half.

                            160, I'll take it!   I had a pretty significant taper...and though I didn't PR...it was definitely a great race for me.  It was the hardest road race course I have ever run.

                              1. 237 miles which includes
                              2. 2 x 28 milers
                              3. 1 x 50 km map and compass event

                              hhmmmnn as predicted I drop slightly short to 221.6 miles and I got 1 x 28 mile run in and a 50km race but with 2 "ultras" in a month and one on Saturday I am well and truly happy with my month how about you guys?

                                I  guess as you get more bodacious, you begin to lose more brain cells, because there is a limit to how much magnificence your body can house
