40/40 Thread for Week Ending 9/29/13 (Read 24 times)

    My second--and final--week as your self-appointed guest host.

     

    For those of you who are new, this is the 40/40 thread, for people who are over 40 years old who run 40 miles/week or more. We give Free Passes to those who come really close or try really hard...

     

    Last week's numbers (in process):

    Who? Miles         Inappropriate de-motivational comments
    IBleedUnionBlue 92 92!? And a 20-mile treadmill run?  Now you're just making that up.
    Alexander R 80 Who is this mystery man?  And how does he run so many miles?
    MikeE 52 Whiner.
    Opie 50.3 Takes advantage of all the slackers to win take third in the mileage race this week!
    Shipo 49.9 C'mon, one-tenth of a mile short of 50?  Get out there!
    Tramps 46.3 Slacking off in the middle of marathon training.
    C-R 41 Sneaking in at the last minute
    Sees-the-Ground 40 13 months?  That's not a virus, that's a lifestyle.
    Happyfeet ?  
    SubDood 37.9 If they gave credit for huffing and puffing, I'd have an Olympic gold.
    Holly 34.4 Gone one week and this place goes to hell.
    OrangeMat 32.81 Going for a record-long taper!

     

     

    Back to some peak-mileage for me.

      Thanks, again, Tramps!  But...umm...Holly never posted our miles before the end of the week...

       

      I'm not sure what I'm going to do about Friday's run...I have to go to an Engelbert Humperdink concert....maybe he'll call in sick like he did last time.

       

      I sure wish Tramps would change my week's total up there...it will be nice to have Holly back...

       

      Ahh...much better.

        Thanks Tramps for carrying the thread.

         

        This week will be a taper week for the Ft Wayne Half Marathon which I plan on running as a pacing run to see what pace I can carry for next months Columbus Marathon.  Unsure how many miles I will run, but my first goal continues to be weight loss and getting off 5 - 10 more pounds before next months marathon.

         

        Mon - Off Day

        Tues - 15 miles. (Yes, I suck at tapering)

        Wed - 11 miles.

        Thurs - 11 miles. (Yes, I really do suck at tapering)

        Fri - Off Day

        Sat - Fort4Fitness Half Marathon - 13.1 miles - 1:45 - a PR for me. 6 mile recovery pace jog in evening.

        Sun - 10 miles.

         

        Total - 66 miles this week & a HM PR.

        Philippians 4:13.


        Happy

          Thanks, Tramps. Tapering for a 5K on October 5th, so mileage will be really light this week and next. Huffing and puffing round 2 -- maybe only worthy of a silver medal.

                          no mystery, I'm just a regular hobby jogger. 47 years old, started running at 28, to lose weight.

                          steadily getting slower with age, trying to compensate for it with increased mileage, but without success.

                          still need to lose weight

                            Well, Alex, that's some serious consistency in your log.  Very impressive stuff.
