Thanks Matt -- I like your run more attitude -- but you have to start where you are at and do what you can.

Poor blog it's been neglected and without going to my running log I don't remember what I did for the week -- a couple of short runs and 1 medium long? Not the greatest week but there is a while to go. (6 more weeks of base-building).

Had wanted to get 7.6 in today but it was 86 and humid. I didn't feel particularly great and just cut it short at 3 miles. Happy 4th!!

A strong 3,7 miles today at a pace which, while still slow, I haven't seen in a while. Was somewhat surprising as this was on 12 hours of rest. Wore my Nikes today -- no wonder my shin was hurting a couple of weeks again Time to retire those shoes. Good Monday to everyone.

Training Thoughts

Post  Dave Wolfe on Tue Jul 05, 2011 8:37 pm

So my computer at work got a virus and I had a lot of downtime. Took advantage by re-reading Jack Daniels "Running Formula."

Two thoughts hit me today 1) He suggests training by time. We've all heard this before and I think ignored the reasons it is suggested -- slower runners cover less miles putting in the same amount of work as faster runners. Daniels' was clear that the time spent running was the best indication of the amount of stress a runner was subjecting himself to. So for, at least, the next 5 weeks I'll try running based on time. Now that I am slower I will be covering fewer miles. Will it pay off in increased fitness? I'll have to wait to see (although Benji Durden also bases his plans on time spent running).

2) Daniels suggests a certain structure to resuming running after a layoff and I basically had a long layoff. By my inconsistent, or nonexistent running, this winter Daniels suggests a 12 week comeback before resuming 100%. I've only worked in an 8 week period. So I might extend the base-building . . . undecided.

In any case it is shaping up to be a strange training cycle.

Ran 50 minutes this morning. At least during base-building I am going to base the workouts on minutes run. Thinking this might be a good way to avoid injury. Starting to get back into shape -- mile 4 was 9:01. Fastest mile in quite some time.

I had hoped to sign up for a couple of races to gauge fitness but they were full. Damn.

The whole "running by time" thing makes perfect sense. Having said that, I've never tried it - just seems to run contrary to everything I've ever done! I am planning out my x-training by time, rather than mileage at the moment, but we'll see how well I stick to that. For some reason it seems natural to do it all by distance, rather than time.

Lobo needs a new theory of relativity to cover the time/distance continuum!!

True, especially if I ever want to run fast again. Right now -- E=MC (slow).

Ran 40 minutes this morning. Nothing to report. Sleep

Thanks Nick -- Ran 3 yesterday and ran/walked for 2 hours today. Started late because Shelly wanted to power walk this morning. Anyway it was HOT. The first part of the run went well running along the Hudson River. Then I decided to run the hilly trails in Inwood Hill Park -- big mistake since it wasted all my energy. Changed to the roads to finish up. Lots of walking but thems the breaks. I need a day off -- either tomorrow or Monday.

I'm glad to see base building is progressing. We're going to have to get you up here one of these days for a run in the preserve (Rockefeller State Park Preserve).
On a Saturday morning, it's less than a 30 minute drive from Riverdale.

Seth -- I took the family to the preserve about 6 weeks ago. Looked like a very nice place to run -- and I'd enjoy a run up there sometime.

Ran an easy 50 minutes this morning to get a good run in before the fore-casted heat comes in tomorrow. I'm not sure what I'll do tomorrow.

This morning I reviewed and added into a spreadsheet all my running since mid-September. A sad looking spreadsheet with very little running and none of it consistent. No wonder I'm out of shape. Consistency!!!

The fitness will come back as you put the miles / time in. What type of shin injury did you have? A running salesperson told me once that as far as cushioning goes for shins, asics have the most cushioning. (They were also the more expensive of the 2 different shoe types I was comparing, so not sure if that had something to do with the statement.) Good luck with getting the time in, and I think running NY for the experience the first time around, and then for time the 2nd time, makes sense.

Thanks Doc: So I was wondering why my running sucks? So I went back and put every run I bothered to log into a single spreadsheet beginning with my first run post hernia operation in Nov. 09. Very inconsistent and very light on the mileage. So I hope to change that.

5K yesterday and 10K today -- 32 and 60 minutes. Looking forward to running more.

DW - You are working your way back. Just enjoy the journey because once the mileage is high low mileage starts to look better. Smile

So I've been a bad blogger -- sometimes just don't feel like writing.

Anyway the running was going well until three days ago when I took a couple of days off because of massive headaches. Otherwise logging some easy miles. Thought I would get a good run in today but seriously under estimated the heat so instead of 1 hour just ran 3 miles and pulled the plug.

Very hard to get a real assessment of fitness in this kind of weather. I'll try again tomorrow -- but I'm thinking of 2-3 90 minute runs this week after it cools down a bit.

Not only can't you accurately assess your fitness in this heat, all you can do is get in whatever training is possible. Anything you're able to do is a plus. The 90 minute runs this coming week are a good way for you get back on track. I hope the bout with the headaches have passed. My wife gets severe migraines, which can last for up to five days. I've seen how incredibly debilitating they can be.

Not a bad week of running -- with a little walking thrown in.
Mon 3/4 I can't remember.
Tues -- slept in but walked a couple of miles at lunchtime.
Weds -- 5+ the Garmin was off as I ran at least 1 minute and the distance didn't change.
Thurs -- 6 miles Hal Higdon style tempo run -- mile 4 was moving fairly good clip.
Fri -- decided to rest.
Sat. -- 7 miles at a good pace probably @ 1 minute faster than a month ago. 3+ mile walk around the ruins of an old Revolutionary War fort "Fort Montgomery." Lot's of fun.
Today -- a 2 hour death march. Dehydrated from yesterday and my legs didn't want to feel another hill.

All in all not a bad week. I am getting in better shape it is just taking longer than I thought it might.

I have been thinking the same thing - I also understand the 2-hr death march thing! It will get better!

I looked at my daily mile entries and I put in no real miles from Dec- March so it's going to be interesting . . . might well be that this marathon is about participation.

Two intermediate goals:
1) to crack 200 lbs. before August 1 (currently at 205)

2) to able to easily run for 2 hours within the next 8 weeks.

202.5 lbs. some progress.

Still can't "easily" run 2 hours.
