Cross-Training day : 70 minutes on the elliptical machine

Training starts to get easier for the next two weeks. Now it's time to start hoping for good weather!

Interval Training day on my first of two recovery weeks before the marathon. For some reason I don't feel like this workout is much of a recovery run. I guess it's because it's only five intervals and not eight :-) I was feeling a little slow going into the first and second intervals. I think it's because I missed several weeks of this faster stuff. Last time I did this workout I was able to average a 3:39 time (5:47 Pace). The weather dididn't make me want to run fast either.

Didn't remember what the recovery should be and I cut it to 200 active recovery. Also, added quite a bit to the warm-up and cool-down. Couldn't quite hit the paces on the speed work.

Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.A)">

Major breakthrough today! I was able to run on the elliptical without holding onto the hand rails :-)

70 minutes on the elliptical. BOARING...!

 

Ahh...Here's something interesting, if you're interested I can be tracked in the marathon. Here is the website:  http://www.mychiptime.com/searchevent.php?id=7211

Short Tempo run today on my first taper week. Last year I ran this same run in 6:42 avg. pace. This time was a little faster at 6:39. This wasn't all out race effort but I had to push a little. It doesn't seem like it's too tough but the second two miles both have long gradual uphills that seem to really slow me down.

Rest or light cross-train tomorrow and a 10-13 mile run at marathon pace on Saturday will pretty much do it for anything tough. Now I start hoping for good weather! Right now it says its going to be 34 degrees the morning of the race and mostly cloudy.

Matthew 16:2-3

He answered them, “When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.’ And in the morning, ‘It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.

Last long run before the Ft Worth Marathon next Sunday. I went back and looked at several of my 10 mile runs over the last couple of years on the same course. Here's the results:

Todays run was the best if you compare the HR effort.

I also went back and compared almost all 21 mile runs (since I started running). Here's the results:

  Avg.
21 Mile Runs Pace HR HR % Temp
First 21 at Ft Worth 2012 7:39 162 87 45º
Best 21 in 2011 7:45 154 84 65º
Last 21 Before Ft Worth 2012 7:49 153 81 55º
First 21 at OKC 2012 7:53 159 85 68º
Last 21 Before OKC 2012 7:55 150 79 60º
First 21 at OKC 2011 8:00 165 91 45º
Last 21 Before Ft Worth 2013 7:43 152 80 45º

My 21 mile run two weeks ago was the best if you compare the HR effort.

Hopefully I'm going into the race in as good of shape as I've everbeen. JG and others have given me good race advice. Now all I have to do is execute it!

As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.
