Well there's some quite knowledgeable people here who hopefully will be able to answer this. I'm hoping to peak around the end of April for Track Reg./Sect. and track started too late to allow me to do all 18 wks. of Phases 2,3, and 4 of Daniels's 1500/3k training. You think everything would still be all right if I put soem Q1 workouts together in the beginning weeks to get up to a point where I can then follow his plans? Any advice would be great.<br><br>
Well hopefully coach lets me do a workout that actually benefits me tonight, and then no more practice for me until after Easter.<br><br>
Have a great day everyone.<br><br>

Hey Alex - I would think you would want to peak for July 3rd 5 mile race <img alt="icon_bounce.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_bounce.gif"><br><br>
10.5 on TM at easy pace - I am struggling with what to do on Saturday - Run a long run here or go down and do the "Trail Breaker" marathon - Untapered and not carbo loaded - After running 35 last Saturday. Sounds like it could be fun or a recipe for disaster.<br><br>
Good running to all -

Nice to see Alex! Welcome. I wish I had advice to give.<br><br>
Gosh I'm tired and achey and whiney. Don't listen to me today.<br><br>

6 very slow miles this morning. Another 4 to come this afternoon.

7.4 miles this morning. It felt like it took a while for me to fall into a comfortable rhythm. I felt slugish and my breathing was sporatic for a good part of the run. Still, I finished in 63 minutes, so pace was good.<br><br>
Great workouts everyone! Have a great day!

One half mile in ten minutes. My back is pretty achy and stiff, but otherwise feeling good.

Did you get up off the delivery table and go for a power walk? <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

sorry to be titheresque, but I do have to celebrate things like this, since they happen only a few times a year.<br>

Grizzly, don't be so hard on yourself. It's normal to feel like that when you're training so hard! I whined all through February, it felt like.<br><br>
As for me, I ran for an hour!!! (OK, OK, it was in the pool.) Also taught pilates and yoga classes this morning.

Hey grizzly - Even a mileage pig <img alt="snorting.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/snorting.gif"> like me listens to my body when it screams loud enough - If I have a recovery day planned and my body demands it, I will either not run or I would skip the 4 this PM. Know the purpose of the day - Run the purpose.<br><br>
PS - Even if I had a T-Pace run planned and it screamed loud enough - I would make it a recovery day. But I am pretty hard of hearing.<br><br>
Make sure you are taking care of your nutrition needs (Hydration, Electrolyte and Caloric) That alone can bring a ferocious Grizzly to his knees.<br><br>
How many weeks out are you? - I thought 5 from this weekend.

Good for you, SGH. Tell us more about it. How elevated was your HR?<br><br>
Did you use a tether? From what I've read, tethered to the wall is the best way to get in a good running position; thus best simulating the running motion.<br><br>
Yay! <img alt="icon_flower.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_flower.gif">

OK, well, actually I was going to post asking if anyone had a clue what they were doing while water running.<br><br>
It's hard to correllate heart rates in the water with on land for a few reasons. Honestly, my heart rate was around 130ish (pulse counting, not HRM). Of course the HR is lower in water, but that is still an easy run for me on land if it equals out to say in the 140ish range on land. Going by feel my face got hot and my breathing got faster and heavier, but still, I didn't feel as exerted as I wanted to "intensity-wise." But then an hour after I ran I was starving so maybe I did something.<br><br>
I do not know what a tether is. I'll have to Google that. My coach sent me a couple articles on form and RPE for water runs and I was following that. I wonder if I should just do it w/o the floatation vest so it would be harder, but also harder to maintain good form.

Another disappointing track workout...makes me feel like I wasted a day. We did have one good part, 2:30 timed run. I didn't try extremely hard and was about 2 or 3 meters short of an 800. Then we "worked on footspeed" by doing 4x1 relays with little pipes because the batons could not be found. No one took the thing seriously and we did 8 relays, so we did 2 complete circuits from where we stood. (After we handed it off we stayed there so we moved up 100m each time.) Hopefully that makes sense. Well I wanted to do an actual workout but my legs were actually really tight because of about 3 or 4 minutes between each 100m "sprint" so hopefully tomorrow afterschool I'll be able to do week 2's Q1 workout of 200s, 400s, and an 800.<br><br>
Grizz I feel the same way like that now. Good days are few and far between for me. I haven't really had an easy run in a long time. I'm always tight and the track issues are just too numerable to think of...but I'm doing all right. We've gotta have a good day soon, eh?<br><br>
Have a great night everyone...I'm off to soak up in Coach's hot tub. <img alt="icon_cheers.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_cheers.gif"><br><br>

Hi everyone,<br><br><b>Alex</b> - I have no advice to offer on the Daniels training plan other than, give it a shot and see what happens. You also might check with your coach.<br><br><b>Amethyst</b> - Here's hoping your DD feels better soon.<br><br>
Some great running out there today folks...whether of the aquatic variety or the on pavement kind. Keep up the awesome work!<br><br>

I was very tired today. The first 5 miles felt great. Then the stomach started bothering me along with the rest of the GI track. I had to slow down to keep it together for the 16 miles.<br><br>
Not a great night, but taking it easy might be good ahead of the race on Sunday.<br><b>Run Segments<br>
