The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. – Chinese Proverb
Good morning, everyone. Hope you're not missing that hour too much.
I'm doing a recovery run. I was hoping to do it with my running club and then maybe go cheer on a race later this morning so I'm packing my cow bell. I'm still feeling good and healthy. I even spent some time this morning looking up another marathon option for late spring...
Morning! Plan was to do 15 but after 10 I called it quits. I'll run the difference tonight. I still do not feel 100%. The run was OK but at recovery pace instead of long run pace which means I'm still dragging from whatever is ailing me. So, listening to my body, I finished a good 10 and left it there. Ha!
Julia, enjoy your recovery run.

Good morning. I'm waiting for it to warm up before heading out. I might slow run a few miles but I'll get the bike ready in case I need to switch gears. I just need to get my heart rate up for an hour this morning. In other news, my oldest DD turns 20 today!
Julia - Enjoy the recovery run and have fun with the cowbell.
Damaris - Good job listening to your body. Enjoy the 5 later.

I was able to sleep in today, so I didn't really notice the missed hour.
Julia: Enjoy your recovery run, and have fun cheering on the race.
Docket: At least you got 10 in, hope you feel 100% soon. Hope you have a nice run tonight.
Scott: Hope you're able to run and it goes well. The kids are growing up!
I'm planning to run about 7 today, going to go over and run the section of the course that I missed that one day I tried to run a big section of the course but missed a turn. After today I will have trained on probably 95% of the course at least once this cycle. There are a few little sections, I have not been on recently, but most of those are just a couple blocks long.

Julia-- I overslept LOL
Docket-- feel better
Scott-- happy birthday to your DD...
NTS-- I'm jealous, I'm doing hilly courses in anticipation, I really hope the course isn't too bad, or my training is good enough for at least a PR.
I ran a nice easy 12 miles today, I was going to go longer but I don't feel very well (I can't go into too many details with a TMI, so I'll just leave at that). I am more and more surprised about my easy paces decreasing. Today I averaged a 9:22 min/mile. I'm excited for next week. But I did have some excitement. There's a motorcycle gang in town right now, wrecking havoc. Well, anyway, I went to cross a busy street, traffic was stopped so I could cross. A guy on a Harley waited until I was in the intersection and ran the stop light, he nearly hit me. I know he wasn't going to hit me, because I would have damaged his bike, but I think he was trying to cause me to fall or something. There was a cop a few blocks away I reported it to him, and I was informed about the motorcycle gang...

I had a nice recovery run. Legs were a little stiff, so it's probably time to hit the foam roller. I also got to talk to some of the runners about marathoning after the run. I hadn't thought much about carbo-loading and timing my shot blocks so it was good to hear what other people do. I missed cheering for the racers, though. It was going to be too much of a pain to get to the race course.
JoJo, "I know he wasn't going to hit me, because I would have damaged his bike" - This is so true. Harley riders in particular are not going to do anything that might scratch their bike.
Swift, Very neat that you've been able to do most of the course. No surprises for you.
Scott, Seriously, where does the time go? Happy birthday to DD even though she made you feel old.
D_R, 10 miles is good. Good luck squeezing in more miles later.
Just got back from running an easy 7. i have my right foot in a bucket of ice water. back later when I have access to a computer.
fake it till you make it
Julia more cowbell! Sorry you missed getting to cheer, but sounds like you got some good info. What do you do for carb loading? I've pretty much been carb-loading the last 36 years so I don't do whole lot differently.
DR hope you are feeling 100% again soon.
Scott our kids share a birthday! Is the foot in ice as a precaution or because it hurts?
Swift- sleeping in- always on my to-do list, never done. Sounds nice!
Jodi- yikes! And how ridiculous. That's really the best fun they can come up with while on their bikes?
RVD nice job on the PR yesterday!
8 miles done today for a total of 69 for the week (feel free to snicker if you are immature like I am). It is my middle kid's 7th birthday today. I'm super emotional about it. He had cancer as a baby and twice we were told to make decisions about whether or not to pursue treatment or let things be, he wasn't expected to survive. He proved us all wrong. He is sweet, funny, smart, laid back, and he's a lego-building genius! I'm feeling pretty damn lucky today.
Happy Birthday to your DS!!!!!
JenRosie, Happy Birthday to the Little Man! That cute grin hides the fact that he's such a fighter... I only laughed at 69 because you mentioned it. ... On the carbo-loading, the guy (he's a 2:30 marathoner) was describing how he does it. I'd probably mess it up if I tried to explain it, but I think it's basically the first method referenced in this article but he does it 5- and then 3-days before the race and not a long run but an interval workout. It's probably the opposite of what most of us probably do - eat carbs all week non-stop. He did say it makes you feel like crap all week, which the article also mentions.
Jen, I do the same kind of carbo loading. It works well. I tend to eat low carb, high protein for a few weeks prior, then eat 77% carbs 3-4 days prior to the race.

Thanks! I couldn't remember if it was you or PressingOn that had done something similar not too long ago.
I do the Aussie method described at the end of that article. I use Cytocarb for a lot of my carbs in last 24 hrs before the race so I don't have to eat a ton.
