    Upcoming Races

    Marine Corps Marathon 10/26/2014

      6. It's one of my goals for the year; to run every Monday through Saturday.


      Run to live; live to run

        Usually 7 as of late. I take a rest every few weeks.


          I do doubles on most days but not every day and I typically run 6 days per week so about 9-10 runs per week.

          Short term goal: 17:59 5K

          Mid term goal:  2:54:59 marathon

          Long term goal: To say I've been a runner half my life.  (I started running at age 45).

          YAYpril - B-Plus

            6-7 days per week. I take a rest day when I need to, but usually I prefer an easy 2-3 miler instead of doing nothing.

              6 when healthy!

                  Right around 6.

                      I run every day of the week ... with one or two doubles thrown in so that means 8-9 runs per week.

                      Train smart ... race smarter.

                        6-7 days per week before the injury and once I get back up to speed.  I've yet to do a double.



                          When healthy, at least 5.

                            Most of you are maniacs, obviously. Big grin


                            I run 6-7 times a week during training, but I certainly do not like having to do it. I have doubles on the schedule once or twice a week, but when it happens, I just run a longer run in the evening, I don't like going out twice.


                            When not in training, I run 5 times a week and that's more than enough for me.

                                    Cornwall Half-Marathon, 1:35, April 27th 2013

                            3 years, 13 marathons, 13 BQs     


                              Last week was my first 4 run week post-injury.   I'll probably stay there for a bit before moving up.


                              I'd like to be at 4 run/2 bike/1-2 lifting sessions a week, with some doubles so I can take a full day off.    The body may have other ideas about that though lol
