Hi Themis. Didn't recognise you for a second wearing your new ID.

Oh, and I've just noticed your half marathon. Which one was it? How did it go?

5782.7 + 2 = 5784.7


It took me 5 runs to go from <14:00 to <13:00. It has taken me 3 runs to go from 12:58 to 12:44. Suffice to say: bleh. (I mean, I knew the slowdown was going to happen eventually - I was just hoping to fend it off for another run or five.)

Interestingly, my cardio seems to be outpacing my muscular fitness at this distance/speed. My last few runs have seen my legs burning and wobbly and reluctant to fire over the last quarter mile, when I speed things up, while my breathing stays pretty solid throughout. This has never happened before, that I can remember.

Does this mean I need to do more endurance work (i.e. distance) or higher intensity (lifting/sprinting)?

It went fine. It wasn't an organized half marathon. My knees hurt like hell the first eight miles but then suddenly were fine so I figured I'd run another 2 miles, which turned into a little over five miles. I both love and hate runs like that, since it would be nice to feel invincible in the beginning of the run, too.

5802.9 + 8 + 6 + 7= 5823.9

The eight on Saturday sucked terribly. It was supposed to be 10 and was the first time in ages I've stopped a run before I intended to finish. I suspect my pain had a lot to do with my taking my Good Friday fast rather more seriously than technically I had to. I tried to replenish my glycogen stores before I ran Saturday, but doing the math and considering just how hard I crashed and the aching hunger I had on the drive home, I suspect my attempts were woefully inadequate.

Running today was very bleh-worthy, but doable. Need be sure I'm hydrated *before* I start next time. >_<

5850.8 + 5 = 5855.8.

Man, between getting sick and having a number of research/writing assignments, I have had such little opportunity to run. I finally decided that I'd probably work more efficiently if I took a bit of a break and got a run in. I only made it five miles in before getting into a coughing fit, then I moved to the elliptical for three miles. It did work, though. I finally got "over the hump" with this appellate brief, though because it took so long, I will probably be pulling an all nighter tonight. /dear diary

Over the last two weeks or so:

5903.6 + 1.5 + 1.5 + 3 + 2 + 1.5 + 3 + 1.5 + 3 =5920.6

Starting running again... very slowly, although progressing fast in terms of how easy it feels. I'll probably end up training to run a half-marathon this fall, since I think having a goal will probably make me stick with it this time (as opposed to the last few times I started running, when I've given up after like a week or so). I think increasing distances a bit more gradually will probably help too.

First real run in a while, and with a cold. Horrible. Need to get back in the habit.

Ok, so when did I last post?

6045.8 + 4.3 + 6 + 4.3 + 4.9 + 2.9 + 3.2 + 6.4 + 6.8 + 8 + 6.2 = 6098.8

Ok, I think that's back up to date. I've got someone trying to talk me into next years London marathon. Not too sure about that....
