My personal training program for March;

Mon - weights, Tues - 4-5 mi, Weds - weights, Thur - 4-5 mi, Fri 4-5 mi, Sat - weights, Sun - 6 mi . In April, Thurs will become a 'speed' day at the track and Fri will become a rest day. At the same time the Sun run will lengthen making Mon a rest day. I may continue to do weight training on 'rest' days depending on my (or my running partner's) fatigue level. In addition to the noted milage, I use a heart monitor in order to maintain an easy/hard regimen, alternating between running at a 70% of max heart
rate with 80% days... speed days being at around 90-95% output.

I am 'attempting' to train for the MArine Corp Marathon to be held Oct 25th 1998.
I've never gone that distance...

Cute! GI-Gena... I think I like it. Sounds like a great movie title...
OK. The Marine Corp Marathon is held in Washington DC. For info, go to the official website http://issb-www1.mqg.usmc.mil/marathon

There is a description of the history of the race, a course map and, for the inspired, an application.

I'm thinking racing singlets... a really cool logo for The Spring on the front, email addresses on the back. Perhaps we should have a 'design the singlet logo' contest...unless you already have a logo for dis place....

three years ago today I ran my first marathon, I'm looking to do a Tin Man Tri in the mountains this summer. Problem number one is the open water swims are always so damn cold you usually need a wet suit -- YUCK!

good luck to you stacey! if not for the water part, i'd consider a tri. i have a great fear of water, however. they have some great looking wetsuits avail thess days stacey...several actually made for women rather than sized down mens versions.

i ran 3 miles easy today... get back on schedule this week with the milage. winter can't last much longer, unless we get another easter blizzard.

Tues - ran 3.5 mi on the only sunny day we've had this week.
Wed - wieghts at the gym. Pretty useless... had no sleep the night before. Surprised I didn't drop a barbell on my head.

Today, well, running is the plan but it's raining and cold and generally yucky. It may become a 'rest' day.

FYI woman runners. In New York City June 6th is the Advil 10K, one of the premier womens races in the country. If anybody's interested in traveling to run it, watch the New York Road Runners Club site, http://www.nyrrc.org for entry info. They'll put an entry form on the site, probably in late April.

no running...
went mucking through the 14 inches of snow that fell yesterday (out of nowhere!) to the store for batteries! Walking through the snow, especially that much of it, uses plenty of different muscles and, when combined with shoveling out the sidewalk and driveway, makes for a satisfactory workout!
tonight, if it reopens, weights at the rec center and a few trips around the track (nowhere else to run to baby... nowhere to hide...)

Ahhh New England!

Saterday; weights... a good workout this time. Bless vitamin B and L-carnitine cocktails!

Today (Sun); Well it's a run day, a 6 mi run day to be exact. And true to form, since its the first weekend of spring, it's snowing like a big dog! Will attempt to coerce my running partner into some other aerobic activity...

Hey y'all!! Well, have managed to run 2 20+ mile weeks in a row... now if I can just keep it up. Am supposed to run 6 mi tomorrow, but am going on a motorcycle ride all morning (trying to beat the rain) instead. Maybe I'll run after, if I can stand up after 150 mi on a motorcycle...

Monday is Boston Marathon day. I'll be at the famous Heartbreak Hill, watching for the Kenyans. Weather is supposed to be in the 60's and windy... we'll see. No Uta Pippig this year, and Elena Meyer dropped out as well due to injury. Hmmm, maybe the americans have a chance...

Inspirational. I'm going to get out and clean up the construction site
at Cedar Creek and go for a walk in the woods. And chain saw up the
trees we had to clear for the cottage.

When I move to the house in town, I'll get over to the Q more (Stacey,
remember the Q?)

Hi... sorry so late in getting back.

Yes, the Boston Marathon was exciting this year, especially the womens wheelchair division. It was a photo finish! I took in the action at Heartbreak Hill, that's about the 20 mile mark. It was too cold for the spectators, thus lovely for the runners.

Came home, ran too hard in the cold. Irritated my achilles. Swam Tuesday, then yesterday when and did a hard 5 miles... beating my achilles to death. I now can't walk.... smart, huh?

Two weeks minimum - no running, ice, ibuprofin and maybe some pool work. I'm bummed...

you swim in the meantime while you're recovering? Whirlpool?

been there gena.
it sucks.
after my first marathon I was so pumped on running and I went out and tried just three hard miles two days later. Ended up with a stress fracture in my left knee. Crutches for eight weeks. Minimal activity for ages and ages and ages after that.
Not all bad. That's when I started mountain biking. Less stress on the knees (unless you land on one!)

heal quickly!

Hi y'all! Well one month later and I still can't REALLY run. I did 5 laps of the track (ran on the grass edge) Saturday. Will attempt the same tonight. I really did a job on my achilles. Cortizone has been suggested, but I hate that stuff! I've had one shot in the knee and one to the elbow. Would rather not get any more.

Hope all is well with everyone. The motorcycling is good. Toured Vermont over Memorial weekend.
