    2015 Races

    2XU HM - 29 Mar

      1. Sub-4 marathon with strong finish

      2. Quick recovery to get back into regular training


      1. Meh. 4:06; strong is a strong word for the kind of finish I had, but improved anyway - 6 min positive split vs. 16 min last time.

      2. Well, yes & no. Minimal residual soreness, seemed to be getting back into it nicely. Then injured 1.5 weeks later, seemingly unrelated but who knows. Now sidelined & pissed off.



        I signed up for 26.2 yesterday so want my long runs to get done.


        My minimum mileage has to be 150.


        I'm adding 1 10 mile run in the beginning of the week, and hope they work out.


        I'm running a mile late in the month and hope to beat 7:05.


        All were met except the last one. I ran 191 this month most in years, but my mile ended up being 7:14. My 5ks have been faster this year than the last 5, but I had no clue on pacing for my mile attempt. I may try again in Aug.

          My main goal is to continue my rehab without having any setbacks.  It'd be nice if I could:


          -Run 100 miles

          -Introduce a little speed to my runs

          -Hit double digits on some runs

          -Run a decent 10K on June 23

          -Get all restrictions lifted when I see my knee doc for the final time on June 25

          -Not die


          -Ran 173 miles


          -Had runs of 10 and 11 miles

          -New PR

          -Not all restrictions lifted, but I can road run as much as I want

          -The month ain't over yet!


          All things considered, I had a FANTASTIC month.

              4. Speed work, seriously

              5. Get below 185lbs


              1. Done!

              2. Done!  212.6, without a single run over 9 miles lol

              3. Didn't PR, but I did win my AG, and ran a great race on a wet cross country course

              4. Nope, maybe one day lol

              5. Nope, but then again, I didn't really try, several b-days, work parties, and other excuses Smile


              Overall it was a great month!

              Goals | sub-18 5k | sub-3 marathon


                OK, so I didn't post in this thread at the beginning of the month to set out some goals, but apparently I'm not letting that stop me from commenting on whether I accomplished them.


                If I had commented, my goals would have been:

                1- Get out of my running rut; start running more consistently and logging my mileage (done)

                2- Follow the training plan; hit at least 90% of scheduled runs (done)

                3- At least 150 miles (done, 170 for the month on the dot).


                All in all, this has been my best month since my March marathon.  I finally feel like I'm out of my rut, and am feeling enthusiastic about running and training.

                  Dang it, I forgot to set goals for June. Maybe next month... Smile


                  I did run a respectable 10 mile race and covered around 90 miles for the month.


                  It was a good month, I guess.

                    I didn't write down any goals for June because I was in such a funk after having a shitty running month in May, so I went into it without expectations, I just wanted to do better.


                    I did! In May I ran less than 30 miles. After a slow first week in June, I still capped off the month with an all time high monthly mileage of 66 miles

                    PRs:   5K- 28:16 (5/5/13)      10K- 1:00:13 (10/27/13)    4M- 41:43 (9/7/13)   15K- 1:34:25  (8/17/13)    10M- 1:56:30 (4/6/14)     HM- 2:20:16 (4/13/14)     Full- 5:55:33 (11/1/15)


                    I started a blog about running :) Check it out if you care to


                      Stretch goal of 150 miles running, will be tough but is do-able.

                      Hit all 8 Quality workouts per the training plan.


                      8 hours + on the bike

                      Keep up the swimming, log at least a couple of miles over the month.



                      No racing until July for me.


                      Failed to hit 150. Heck failed to break 100 for a variety of reasons

                      Got 4/8 quality workouts

                      Missed the bike goal


                      4.6 miles swimming. A life time monthly PR for that at least

                        1. Stay alive.
                        2. Stay injury free.
                        3. 150+ km.
                        5. keep my training plan.

                        This is my June balance:


                        1. Reached (I think Wink )

                        2. Reached, but I'm very tired...

                        3. Reached. I run 188,6km in June

                        5. Not reached. I changed something...
