Hmm. ..I can run three miles tonight, rest tomorrow, and run five miles on Saturday OR run eight miles Tomorrow and rest today and Saturday OR run three miles tonight, five in the morning, and rest Saturday.
Well isn’t this a pickle?
Follow those techniques to help loosen tight muscles—which will help your running.
And I was just saying how I need to stretch and roll more often!
Well. .. do you have a better way to carb load for a three mile run?
I honored my rest days and kept them holy! Only, I should do more active recovery on those days. I need to get a regular stretching/rolling routine to loosen up the muscles and hips.
Tuesday’s 4 miler was pretty easy, just a little slow. I’m still struggling on my bike rides. I think I need to adjust the handle bars now in addition to adding more air to my tires. This is ridiculous, I’m a grown ass man having trouble riding a bike.
My tempo run really sucked ass. I didn’t have enough of a time to get warmed up so I know what to do the next time.
I missed my seven mile run on Saturday and tried to make up for it on the treadmill yesterday. Not a good idea. There was no A/C in the gym and I was dying in the first mile. I pushed through and managed to get in four junky miles but it was very underwhelming. I was supposed to be doing an hour of strength training yesterday and to my shock the gym was “full” at 8:30 p.m. on a Sunday. I only got in a quick circuit but I’m sure my body didn’t even notice.
Well, today is resting and Monday Night Football and then a relatively easy training schedule this week.
Here’s to putting up some good numbers!
I just “completed” a “thirty minute” tempo “run”.
Not exactly an elite performance to say the least. :/

- I’m doing the Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon on October 26th! It’s my first half marathon and I’m running it with a few friends in superhero costumes.
I’m not formally training for it but I’m piggy-backing my L.A. Marathon training.
Thanks for asking!
You’d think with all the squats I’ve done in the past six months I’d be able to handle a little thirty minute bike ride.
That was not the case. My quads burn like a text from an ex!
I think my body got the gist of the workout though so I’ll count this as a win. With an asterisk.
Just putting it out there!
Four more miles down and many more to go. My lungs really don’t open up until mile three so my breathing needs a lot of work. My pacing was a little better today But still a work in progress.
I found out that if you listen to Separate Ways by Journey during a run You can get away with playing air guitar without anyone noticing.
I also had to fight the urge to start dancing to Kelly Clarkson towards the end of my run. :/
Things started off well and shot downhill quick.
I only got in six out of my scheduled twelve miles because I was out of town for a bowling tournament. No excuses though, I should have made a better effort to get on the treadmill at the hotel.
I also managed to skip the second most important part of my training, the Sunday cross-training day.
Today is a “rest” day although I’m not sure what I need to rest from. I’ll actually work on some stretching and breathing exercises.
Tomorrow I have four miles to tackle and I’m planning on doing a hill route. Hopefully I’ll wake up on time and get it in before work.
