  1. So, I've been following my own training schedule to increase my distance to do a marathon after failing my first attempt and a coworker and avid runner seems scandalized that I would run over 22 miles preparing for a marathon. My plan actually over-shot the distance initially to give me room to miss runs and fall short of my total distance, but I'm so far staying pretty much on schedule (I've shaved a kilometer or two). My question is, if I'm recovering and the distance increases aren't crazy high is there a reason I SHOULDN'T run farther? Everything I've read has sai

    On your left.

    OK, time to speed it up. I'm training for a half marathon in November and I have no doubt I'll get the distance in, but I want to tick my speed up a little. From a bit of research it seems the two things that will kick up my speed a notch are sprint training (which trains short twitch muscle fibers giving me anaerobic speed over short distances) and fartlek (teehee) training which raises VO2 Max (the oxygen efficiency in your muscles for distance). To sum up research in a few sentences and grossly simplifying things: Sprinting will improve my over all pace slightly, my "gear switch" to a fa
  3. He lay the map out on the table, relief washing over him. It had taken him over a month to locate this map and now that he saw it he knew that it had been worth the effort. It wasn't some cheap map without any detail. Whoever had made this map had slaved over the minor details making it almost feel alive in his hands. There was a possibility there was more to this map than the naked eye could see. Looking at the map he knew he wasn't quite ready for this journey. The green mountains had many legends. He had heard mention of zombies, trolls, as well as some that spoke of trails that chan
  4. So I've got two goals with my running. I wan't to be able to run a 5K, but I also know that I need to work on my intervals/sprints. My body "type" seems to be naturally inclined to long distance running. I'm not in shape yet, but I've managed to work up to a 5K in about 40 min. on the treadmill (outside is a totally different story, but I'm working on it). I've also got an alternate training workout of doing interval "sprints" on the treadmill for 20 minutes: 1 min. walk-1 min. run (which is actually a jog - but at least I'm doing it). I started with the Academy Body-weight routine,
  5. I've been going for walks every day for the past few months. I have a pedometer (sort of), so I know how many steps I end up taking, but I have no idea how much distance I actually cover. I don't need to know the exact distance, but it would be nice to have a general idea.
  6. I started running last year, coming from a few years of moderate hiking. I was more or less following a plan that had long run distance increasing by a mile per week once you could run 3 miles. I kept getting hurt, and ended up increasing my mileage by maybe a mile per month on average because I had to keep cutting back to recover. By November, my longest run was about 5.5 miles. Then winter came, and I switched to hiking. This year, I said screw those “quick†mileage gains, and have been increasing by 1/2 a mile per week on my long runs since 4 miles, and 1/2 mile every 2 weeks before th
  7. Continuing to train for my upcoming 50K trail run (April 27th) This next six weeks, I will: * Continue to hit my weekly mileage goals, including a long run each week of 12-26 miles * Add a trail run to my weekly runs (even if there's crazy deep snow/ice) * Bring my dog out for the occasional short run (he can't keep a good pace for more than 3 miles but LOVES to run w me * Seriously engage in visualization this challenge and... run some amazing trails when I'm in Hawaii next month-- anyone have experience/advice trail running on Oahu???? --Inspired Fool
  8. Greetings Fellow Rebels! I am New to the forums and this is my First Quest. My Main Quest is to: Prepare for my first Ultra-Marathon, a 50K (31 mile) trail race on April 27th. Missions to help me succeed at my Quest: 1. Add at least one trail run to my regular weekly running schedule 2. Ensure one long run (between 10-22 miles) every week 3. Practice strength training 1-3 times each week Additionally, my current Life Quest is to practice visualization and meditation at least 3 times each week in order to facilitate my personal growth and active creation of an ever-improving, passion-driv
  9. Hello Scouts! I'm new on your patch, putting on my metal helmet and feeling brave enough to leave my security blanket back with the Adventurers! In Chapter 3 my main quest was to comfortably complete my first 100km bike ride on the 20th of October. This will occur in the fifth week of this challenge. It is still the main goal right now but I will be aiming to create a bigger main goal before the end of this challenge. So, my three major goal are still covering the same areas: Training, Nutrition and Recovery. Training - STR 2 & STA 2 Week by week goals (Not sure how I will score
  10. Cutebug's Awesome Autumn Adventure! Challenge 1: Continue Hiking throughout the fall! Rain or Shine! (Probably lots of rain!) I am committing to hike at least once per week, as I have been doing over the summer. I will continue to monitor my elevation and distance, and get to Mordor. Challenge 2: Train myself to do a Back Bend from standing position! I can do a mean bridge but it's been over a decade since I've been able to get down there from standing position. There will be lots of balance and stretching exercises! I think strengthening my arms and legs will help with this. Ch
  11. My mission: to run the Marine Corps Marathon and not get picked up by the sag wagon (~12 min/mile). Goals: Run 5 miles at least 3 days a week Do a hill run at least one day a week Cross train at least 1 day per week Do a long run each weekend

    Building distance

    Just signed up! My challenges are: - 3 runs (distance, intervals and tempo) each week, sticking to Furman paces (so no slacking!) plus at least 2 visits to the gym for cross-training - to shift the half stone I put on recently (intermittent fasting seems to do the job, as long as I train first thing on the low-cal days rather than leaving it til later in the day) - to build my mileage up to an 18 mile run by the end of the six weeks (I'm up to 13.5) as I've signed up for a 20 mile race and want to run a marathon or 2 this year. I've found in the past that my best running is on less mileage
