As a trainer I find this formula very intriguing. I never took a physics class in college, and from what I remember, I scored poorly when I took physics in high school. However, after I started my …
Here’s a post from my buddy Tiger Joo’s blog on his perspective to training his clients.
At least for a native Angeleno like myself. To me anything under 70 is cold and below 65 is freezing.
That said, this cold weather training sucks!
Pretty soon I’m going to be suited up like Rocky Balboa for my runs. Do they even still make cotton sweatsuits?
Did another “midnight run” last night and forgot to stretch out when I finished. Been feeling a little sore all day but not having the proper footwear is a factor too.
Tomorrow I go shoe shopping. GOD! I feel like my sister saying that but it’s all good. I’m actually happy to say(for hopefully the only time in my life) that I get to go shoe shopping.
Thinking of picking up some running shorts and a new duffel bag too.
Sorry this wasn’t a more entertaining update. Hopefully they’ll get better once my training gets more intense.
I wanted to title this one “Raining Day” but I thought it was a little corny and I went for nostalgia instead.
I need to get in 1 - 2 miles on the road but I don’t know how I feel about running in the rain.
I’m not going to wuss out today though. Rain or shine I’m going to get my miles in!
It’s 1600 here in sunny SoCal and I’m practically trapped in my office. Everyone else in this twenty floor building either had a whole or half day and we’re the only drones still here going through the motions.
I mention that because I would have loved to have had a half day and had the extra time for training.
I didn’t get a chance to get my run in this morning and I have no idea what state I’ll be in later tonight so a mid-day run would have been superb.
As it stands I have to fit in about two miles today. It would help if I had my gear handy but I have the added obstacle of having to go home to pick it up. Although, Monday I trained at 2300 and it worked out pretty good.
I’ve got to make a better effort to make sure I’m not backed into a corner like this in the future.
No residual effects from last night’s run at all. If anything I actually feel better. This is not “runner’s propaganda” either, I actually felt better than I’ve felt in weeks.
According to my training plan today I’m supposed to bike or swim. I don’t have access to a pool or bicycle so until I get one or the other my plan is to strength train.
I’ll of course focus as much on my legs as I can without over-training them but I’ll definitely incorporate adequate core work and some upper body stuff.
I don’t have a decent weight set yet at the house and my gym membership ended a couple of weeks ago so it’s going to be strictly body weight routines for me. Let’s see how it all comes together.
I seriously do. I swore my lungs were broken and I think I might have died for a few minutes. I’m really not sure what I was thinking anymore. I finished though. Not far off from what I expected but it could have been better.
If you want to see how I did check me out on Endomondo!

My entries are going to start getting more frequent and more personal. Marathon training starts Sunday and I NEED to post at least daily. It’s my way of helping myself stay motivated and on track.
I guarantee you won’t be impressed by any of the numbers that I put up and I’m counting on that. I want a public training log open to scrutiny and ridicule. I use negativity as fuel so give me your worst!
Gosh I love my inner masochist!
I can honestly say I’m terrified about starting marathon training next week. My body doesn’t feel 100% and I’ve never had strong lungs. I’m probably gonna cry at some point next week in the middle of a run so I’d better get ready for that.
