Hey folks, mind if I jump in here with you?<br><br>
I posted a similar message in the CT runners thread, but I'd like a place to check in on a regular basis, so this seems to fit the bill!<br><br>
I'm currently training for Boston's Run to Remember HM. My goal is to run sub-2 (current PR is 2:09).<br><br>
I'm using <i>Runner's World's</i> Intermediate "Ulitmate HM program".<br><br>
I don't have any other races scheduled, but am looking for some to fit in to my Summer/Fall schedule (weekends fill up quick!)<br><br>
Thanks for the welcome, folks!<br><br>
My PR was at the run to remember last year...and in actuality, I ran it in 2:07ish....I stopped a few times to wait for friends and once to mug for some pictures with my son.<br><br>
The program I'm following now is WAY different than HH's beginner program which I have followed in the past. I really like the intervals involved, a whole new ball game!<br><br>
Thanks for the welcome, runners!<br><br>
Well, it was bound to happen. I've heard about them, but in my 2+ years of running I hadn't experienced one before. But today, I had it. Nah, it's nothing major, but I finally had my first 'bad run'.<br><br>
I was supposed to do 8-9 miles, with 4min TUT (Total Uphill Time). The first 2 miles were okay, just warming up, but I got to a steep hill and knocked 1:30 out of the 4min needed on that one just gassed me. After that I couldn't get into a groove, never hit my stride and just struggled the whole way. I got the other 2:30 of hills around 5 miles in on a long, more gradual hill, and it wasn't as bad as the first one, but it didn't help with trying to develop/maintain a good rhythm or pace.<br><br>
I finally realized around 6.5 miles that things just weren't going to click. So I stopped trying to turn it into something 'good' and plodded along for the last 1.5 miles.<br><br>
I honestly don't think it was the hills, I think it was the fact that I missed runs on Thursday and Saturday and wasn't thoroughly hydrated today.<br><br>
Fear not, I'm not bumming about it. Bad runs are bound to happen. It's behind me. I just feel chatty so I figured I'd let you know how my run went today, rather than just 'I did 8 miles'! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="">
