Marine Corps Marathon Training...
« on: October 02, 2018, 06:14:34 pm »
Ok girls... I'm counting on y'all to keep me honest here, so I'm hereby making my Strava profile public, and putting in a link.

https://www.strava.com/athletes/sarah_staubs

To make sure I get in, I will be doing the Marine Corps 17.75k April 13, 2019. Finishing this run guarantees an entry into the Marathon.

On Saturday, September 29, I did the Virginia 10 Miler, and I run 3 times a week.

I'm counting on y'all to keep me honest about these running appointments as well.

:D

Sorry, I could only make the last 2 months worth of runs public :(

Edit: nevermind, was looking at the wrong list... I have over 200 runs on here though, so it will take a while to get them all publicized...  some are inside the privacy zone I have designated around my house though, sorry.

Nice! I hope I survive my 5k in November (really close to you)

Maybe if I continue training I can join you one day!

Anytime honey! :) I'm doing the Turkey Trot this year in Fairfax, VA.  I was going to do the one in Lynchburg with my cousin, but due to my coming out experience with him, that's out.  See you on the road! :D

Ha! The 5k Route or the double loop for 10k?

I guess I will see you there, I will be the last to cross the finish line...

I had no idea there was a double loop option, um... if I can still do that, I'll probably shoot for it. (Hurriedly checks website)

Sweet! This will be fun. I am most likely more walking than running but participating is what counts... doubt I will make the cut off time.

Like I always tell my mother... one step at a time.   When I first started running, I could barely finish a half mile. It's just keeping at it.

I have run during the past 15 years, but just finished a full course twice. I tend to run slowly to avoid any possible injury in the long term. I have tracked my running since 2011 by Runkeeper:


Recently I started riding a mountain bike and have recorded using Strava: https://www.strava.com/athletes/33446320

Yes. I am going to run occasionally together with biking.

Just do it.

My longest run so far is 11 miles, but my next long run is on Sunday so I'm going for 12 hopefully *crosses fingers*
I might have to reduce a bit after the 10 miler this past Saturday, I pushed pretty hard up the last hill.

Without practice you can finish a half-course marathon if you do not mind the record. But, full course is different. Without intense practices, few people can finish it. My experience tells that running a full-course marathon is more difficult than 12-hour biking. For half-course marathons, I finished without any serious problem even though I drank wine and other alcohol beverages a lot in the previous night. Sometimes I ran while being drunken.

The best seasons for running and marathon are of course spring and fall. October is nice for marathon.

It was really difficult for me to run and bike in the mid summer, as I had to stop frequently to drink water. For the following course, I drunk 12 bottles of water.

Oh I fully intend on doing intense training that's why I started this thread: for public accountability.

So... my training for today: 20 minutes treadmill and a one hour Zumba class... I have not been in weeks and I forgot how much it trains the leg muscles...
