Getting into a decent groove. 4 days a week pretty consistently. Will add a 5th in the coming weeks and start training for my R2R run at the Grand Canyon. Think I’ve decided R2R instead of R2R2R. Wanna spend some decent time at the North Rim. I’d like to finish in about 4 hours.

Got a 5k in on the treadmill. Only an 8 min pace but almost pain free. Will see how I feel tomorrow and then hopefully hit it again on sunday

I have been slacking but still have that 10k coming up at the end of the month. Running 2 miles at a time currently and infrequently. Can I get there from here?

Yes.

30 minutes 2 or 3 times a week. Then 4, 5, 6 miles on sucessive Sundays.

The winter blahs have set in. Nothing about getting up at 5 AM tomorrow, putting on 19 pieces of clothing and gear, and slip-sliding over the ice for 45 minutes appeals to me at all. And running 12 miles through ankle-deep snow yesterday murdered my legs. Somebody slap some sense into me.

I'm in the Zane Grey 50 Mile after they had a shitload of people drop and I got pulled up from the waitlist.

Pretty pumped.

Spoiler: show
Finished despite shitting myself twice and throwing up 7 times the last time I ran it.

I'm not mentally strong enough for the treadmill. Or physically, probably. If I run at a comfortable pace it takes twice as long to get the miles in as it would outdoors, and if I run at what the treadmill says is my outdoor pace I feel like I'm going to have a heart attack.

I have the same issue with treadmills and I've always just accepted the numbers will look different and to just go by how your body feels. Treadmill has to be better than sliding around in the snow.

That's weird, most runners (including myself) have the opposite problem. I could run a 60 minute max-effort 10 miler on the treadmill, but would probably struggle to get under 64 on the road.

How are you doing your speed/tempo work in those shitty conditions, tmcs?

Also, verb, you will be happy to learn that I switched back to Boston Boosts. I went up a half-size in hopes it would stop the shoe from splitting on the sides.

The only speed work in my training plan (Higdon Intermediate) is a goal pace run every other week or so. So far they've lined up almost perfectly with days that the paths have been clear. My goal marathon pace (7:55ish) isn't too far off my easy pace (8:45ish), so I'm banking on making up for the ones I miss once the weather is nicer.

Tmcs, you've already done a marathon at a 7:30 pace, right?

In my opinion, you'd be better off doing VO2 max work instead of MP stuff.

~ 7:55 isn't really doing much for you. They aren't really quick enough to give you much threshold work.

You'd get far more bang for your buck doing 800M (~7:15 pace) repeats at the track.

You could also do a burn bracket, which is a fastish (5K pace) 800M, then 2 miles at MP, then another fastish (5K pace) 800M. That way you'd get some VO2 work, and the first 800M will push your MP miles into threshold work.

Also, if you're happy with what you are doing, you can just tell me to fuck off.

Ha, no worries. I've only been running since last April so I welcome any and all advice. I did a couple of halves last fall at ~7:30, but this May will be my first full. 7:55 is probably too conservative. I just want to finish under 3:30. I'd love to be able to run it at 7:30, but I've never run farther than 13.1 so I don't really know what to expect yet.

I might try those 800m repeats on the gym's indoor track. That sounds a lot more enticing than the treadmill.

Ridiculous light pillars all over the sky this morning. Didn't have my phone with me, but looked pretty much the same as this:

Ultra training starts this weekend. Back-to-back 15-plus mile runs.

Then 60+ miles next week. I guess I'm in the shit now.
