BIG DAY.... REGISTERED FOR BOSTON 2014 ... !!!


I'm not really sure what I'm doing right now so I just decided to run 10 mile each day this week. A few miles were fast, a few were slow but most were about MP+15-25 seconds. I'm not even sure if this is good training, I'm just figuring it's base building. Hopefully I can get out of the rut and start some real training soon.

The dew point was down so it actually felt a little better today. I actaully thought I could feel a little cool breeze at times. :-)

Hey Preston, I can tell you that running the same amount of miles every day is not a good idea. For 1 week it won't matter, but if you keep it up, well, bad things will happen, man. Bad things.

Seriously, studies have been done that show that the more monotonous a runner's training is, the more likely they are to become overtrained, sick or injured. You'd be better off running a couple shorter days and a couple longer days. At least you're varying the pace day to day, which helps a lot.

Again, for just one week its not going to matter. Just don't make a habit of it :) I'm sure you wouldn't anyway, you'd get bored with it too quickly.

Thanks DL,

I wasn't planning on continuing this, I just thought I'd do it for a week just for fun. I was actually thinking when I blogged about writing "boring and tiring". I'm going to start mixing it up again next week.

Congrats on registering for Boston!!!! I'm really happy for you. It will be an amazing day. Your hard work and dedication has paid off.

From Tom K on Fri, Sep 13, 2013 at 11:19:54 from 174.58.4.250

Congratulations IJR! (I mean with the Boston thing, not with the monotonous running routine thing!)

From DLTheo on Fri, Sep 13, 2013 at 11:23:33 from 76.28.161.119

I didn't think you would, but isn't it interesting how tiring a boring running routine can feel, even though it is physically less demanding?

Congrats on the Boston registration!!!

From derhammer on Fri, Sep 13, 2013 at 13:22:04 from 64.245.52.2

Agree with DLTheo. Summer base training was monotonous. Though I will say there was a reason behind the monotony. IJR - you are training for a marathon. You are only 10 weeks away. You need plan and a schedule. I highly recommend not making things up as you go along. Enough said. Oh, and congrats on Boston!! :-)

From I Just Run on Fri, Sep 13, 2013 at 13:44:55 from 67.79.11.242

Yes...Thanks Guys,

I am ready for a plan, so let the plan begin...Monday!

From Dan on Fri, Sep 13, 2013 at 16:54:05 from 24.209.83.20

Congrats man! You earned and deserve it!

From rAtTLeTrAp on Sat, Sep 14, 2013 at 09:19:45 from 71.227.240.61

Congrats again on Boston! I hope there's still a few spots open on Monday.

No advice on training except to do whatever keeps you motivated :)
