AM: 6 miles. chocolate factory loop. 

PM: 3 miles around liberty park. weighted vest experiment #1.

5 pounds / average pace = 7:49 / average HR = 141 bpm 

target pace is 8:00/mile, so this was a little too fast. average HR without weight at 8:00 pace = 129 bpm. more to come...

PM2: fieldhouse workout. weights, core, heel/toe walking, wall sits, plank, etc.

8 miles. emigration market loop. 

i've been debating between striders 1/2 and the SLC 10-miler this weekend. i'm leaning more towards the 10-miler at this point for a number of reasons, but that would mean missing the first circuit race. tough decision... 

i'm also signed up for the SLC half marathon. it looks like they are actually getting it together and the race will be legit. they are forking out a bunch of prize money, so it could potentially be a very competitive race. i don't think the new race management would be giving out prize money if they weren't going to do it right -- everyone knows the reputation of this race, and they wouldn't have taken it over only to continue to drive it into the ground. at least we can hope this is the case...

9.5 miles. JAJAF run around sugarhouse. it was a really nice morning out -- enjoying more and more daylight each week, and today it was kicked off with a lovely sunrise. and no wind! 

fieldhouse workout.

am: 6 miles. westminster loop. cool moon this morning -- it looked like a giant version of one of those gold leprechaun coins that is filled with chocolate and melts in the warmer-than-average spring sun and you tote it around in your car until james finds it and eats it for dinner.

pm edit: did not get registered for the slc 10-miler.  i prematurely blogged my fate for saturday, but it turns out i can't actually get into the race. registration closed for good on wednesday evening and there is no day-of-race registration. so...striders it is!

5.000.0013.000.0018.00

splits: 6:17, 6:16, 6:18, 6:05, 6:21, 6:20, 6:27, 6:28, 6:42 (wobble), 6:27, 6:35 (weave), 6:39, 6:27, 0:34 (.1).

beautiful weather this morning -- a striders miracle. the skies were crystal clear and there was a slight breeze in the form of a tailwind. even though it was very cold at the starting line, the sunshine was abundant and it warmed up nicely. i was toasty warm after the first mile.

warmed up with devra and james. found tara at the starting line, which is always a delight. after some brief instructions from the race director, we were off.

my plan for this race was to to run a hard, honest effort but not overdo it. i'm planning on overdoing it at salt lake city half in two weeks, so today was more of a fitness test. i plugged 1:24:00 into the course tool last night to analyze what kind of splits i would have to run and it seemed reasonable. i decided i would go for that time, and...ta da! (kind of bummed i didn't break 1:24 though; i tried). it was the final 5k that got to me..i basically went up in flames after a short hill in mile 9 and never recovered. 

i came in second behind devra (she ran a 1:20:xx, which is an incredible time for this course). cooled down with devra, james, tara, and markP after the race. i really enjoyed this today. ever since 2009, this race has always had a black cloud and a big red "x" over it in my mind. i never wanted to return. i'm glad i gave it another chance today -- it's a beautiful course when you aren't blinded by blowing snow. the best part of the day is that i came home with just enough cash to buy dinner for two at chanon thai.

12.5 miles. JAJAF sunday run. we ran along the slc half marathon course to check out the route. i wasn't really sore this morning, but i felt pretty tight and low on energy. i was fine up through 10 miles but started crashing after that. luckily the only thing left was the long, slow climb to the top of state street. the finish will be great this year though -- a very nice downhill grade for the final half mile. no turns. no cobblestones. i just hope i get my energy back by then.

thanks to jake and andrea for setting up the run and the shuttling of cars. it was a fun morning with perfect weather (my only complaint being that jake didn't dress up like a giant bunny).

happy easter.

PM run + track workout. whaaaaaaaat? 

yes, andrea convinced me to join her in a track workout this afternoon. i haven't done anything on the track in a very long time. i slowly phased it out of my training over time, partly due to my work schedule and partly because i am a wuss and full of excuses. i have never been able to get myself to go back until today -- the day full of cold wind and rain...

it actually turned out to be very pleasant for the actual workout. we warmed up around sugarhouse park just as the rain was dying down, and once we got to the track it had pretty much cleared up. the sun even started shining by the time we were cooling down.

the workout: 3 x (400m-200m-200m) with 200m recovery. this was a perfect little workout to ease back into track running and remind my body what it's all about. i stayed with andrea (barely) for the first set, and then i slowly started dropping back. by the final set, she was finishing her 200's before i had even started mine :)  

my issue was the recovery portion -- i wasn't getting my breathing even a little bit under control before the next repeat, so each one became more difficult and sloppy than the last. i finally just started taking a bit more time on the recovery portions and was able to finish out the workout with a strong final 200m. the 400's ranged from 83-90 and the 200's 40-44. something like that. i'll have to see what andrea's splits were -- my timex seems to have had a lot of difficulties separating the splits and recovery periods. i think i was pushing the wrong button. i'm not used to taking splits so often!   

in sum: this felt harder than it should have and was a nice reminder that i am out of shape. however, it was good to get back to the track. i know i need to do this more, it's just a matter making time and putting in the effort to do it. i know it will help. i like how it makes you feel terrible, but at the same time you feel good and alive.

Race: Running for Relief 5k (3.1 Miles) 00:20:29, Place overall: 1
Easy MilesMarathon Pace MilesThreshold MilesVO2 Max MilesTotal Distance
5.500.003.000.008.50

run for relief 5k this morning, put on by the christ united methodist church in millcreek. it was a tough course, but not that tough. i'm not sure what is going on but i'm definitely out of the fitness groove. this is my third 5k this year and i keep getting slower. 

the race started with a short trip around the block -- uphill, relief, downhill, then back up the same hill. it then gradually climbed up 2700 south toward tanner park. from there it dropped back downhill for a good while. it was a nice stretch to get the turnover going and get my breathing back under control. the final mile had a few turns with some gradual uphills, but nothing too crazy. i knew by mile two that i wouldn't break 20, and i found that annoying because i was running as fast as i could. 

we ran the course before the race and it reminded me a lot of the cottonwood heights 5k. that is when i made the goal to break 20, thinking that would be a decent time. the fact that i wasn't even close worries me a bit. i don't know -- something is off.

despite the "death to me" element of the race, it was a lot of fun. very low key and friendly. i cooled down with james and markP and then we headed inside the church, where they were very generously giving away thousands of frozen burritos and car air fresheners (this is absolutely true).

i'll have to see what happens next week at SLC, but i'm not very confident about anything right now.

planning to spend the rest of the day working on the "cutting james' hair" project.

6 miles. westminster loop. i am running the full marathon on saturday instead of the half. i think that a sensibly paced marathon will be easier on my body than an all-out half. i destroyed myself (esp. calves) in that half last year, and i know my body is not up for that right now. plus, i haven't run the full since 2009, and i'm craving the opportunity to run on the van winkle expressway. 

so now i'm tapering...

2.6 miles with james on the wood chips at liberty park. did a few 400 millimeter sprints. 

if everything goes well tomorrow, my race will hopefully resemble this chart. of course, it could also end up being a complete disaster, but that is the risk (and part of the fun) of every marathon.

marathon #22. here we go...

half #1: 1:29:15  half #2: 1:31:22 

my goal for today was 2:58:00, and maybe slightly under that if i could pull it off. basically i wanted to give myself enough of a cushion so i didn't have to strain my way to the finish line in a frantic battle with the numbers 2, 5 & 9. well, there was no battle today. i crossed the line with the clock well past 2:59 -- a peaceful 3 was clicking it's way through it's first minute, and i gazed at it in defeat as i approached it and its fat zero friends. the sub-3 marathon is no more. 

i started the race running with devra. she made for great company through the first half of the race, and kept me going at a pace that i probably wouldn't have been comfortable maintaining on my own. i knew it was only a matter of time before she dropped me (she beat me by 3+ minutes at striders half just two weeks ago). i had no delusions that i would stay with her the entire race, but i appreciated the company and encouragement she offered through the first 12 miles or so.

we were in the lead for the women from the gun, although it was difficult to tell until the half and full courses split. i had splits for every three miles written on my arm, and for the most part we were staying on pace, give or take a few seconds. the rolling hills in sugarhouse park took their toll on me, and i started breathing much harder than i was comfortable with at such an early stage of the race. there were two more uphill sections over the next few miles, and both times i went too far into oxygen debt. i gasped to devra that it wasn't a good sign.

devra stayed with me until just before mile 12, and then she really turned on the speed and dropped me hard. i knew this was coming -- she was running so much more relaxed than i was. it was obvious that she had more gears, while i felt like i was hanging by a thread on my final gear that was rust-laden and begging to be put in park. i was happy to see her go and chase the time that she wanted to run, but of course it was also a bummer because it meant i lost my company. i also lost the bike marshall lady who was in charge of escorting the lead woman through the race. dang. this is where i experienced my mental crash. mile 12! i still had 14 more to go -- devra-less and bike marshall-less. luckily, a mental crash can be treated a lot easier than a physical crash can, and physically i was alright. so on i went. 

i put several band-aids over my mental bruises and hoped they would stick long enough to at least get me to mile 20. i hit the halfway mark just 10 seconds off my goal split, and the fact that i was still on pace gave me a bit of a lift over the next few miles. i really had to focus on the van winkle segment. it's tough running that part solo -- the road is huge and it really makes you feel tiny and alone when you are running down the middle of an expressway. my focus turned to getting to mile 16 to see rachelle. i desperately wanted to see a familiar face at this point. i ran through the several thousand offerings of cups so i could grab one from rachelle at the very end. i pointed to her cup and probably pulled some awful face, but she kindly (and perfectly) handed it off to me while cheering. what a great boost that was for me. okay. i can make it to 17. if i can get to 17, i only have to run 3 more miles, and then i'm at 20. i'll deal with 20 when it comes, but i need to get to 17 so i can get to 20. this was my thought process.

the stretch along 500 east is where things really started to get tough. my pace started wobbling, and i knew once i started seeing 7:xx splits, i was done. i spent the next four miles with my head down, staring at the lines on the road and putting all of my energy and concentration into maintaining 6:50's. even 6:59's -- just don't cross that line!

at 2100 south, i relaxed slightly, as i run this section of the course almost daily. i knew exactly how much further i had to go before making the turn into liberty park -- a refreshing thought after running along 500 east for several hours.  

liberty park means mile 23, and mile 23 means just about 5k to go. this is usually a stronger mile of the race for me because of this thought, but today it was just not happening for me. my body was protesting, and my brain band-aids were soggily strewn all over 500 east. i knew this was going to be a tough finish, and that wasn't even factoring in the hill on state street. oh no. 

my pace slowed even more over the next two miles. i was weaving through half marathoners as i slowly trekked up state street, and i didn't have the energy to tell them they were in the way. this is why i wanted to stay with the bike marshall! i kept saying: "on your left"  but each time i had to say words i lost more energy and hunched over a little bit more. by the time i reached the top of the hill at south temple, my face was nearly touching the asphalt.

the finish stretch was really cool this year -- a straight shot down south temple with a nice downhill to let you coast along. unfortunately, i wasn't able to do much coasting. i was still weaving in and out of half marathon traffic, and i had nothing left to burn. 

at this point my watch was giving me 2:58-something, and i knew sub-3 was gone. it was just about finishing at this point. i saw my family with about 400m to go, which was a nice boost. then i saw andrea cheering me on and that helped a ton as well. the best part was james off in the distance, standing in the center of the finish chute. i could see his orange singlet and that became my ultimate focus. just get to james. the clock was at three and change, and i was already feeling waves of disappointment. however, i was also very happy to be approaching the finish line. i was definitely tired, but not broken -- no injuries in 2012!

i crossed the line in 3:00:37. emily b. and james were there to greet me with a nice shower of cold water. that was wonderful. i was very happy to be done and just wanted to lie down. this was a difficult race for me today -- definitely one of the hardest marathons i've done in the past couple of years. i felt confident that i could run a 2:58, but the pace today felt forced and i couldn't hold it together in the end. i have a lot more work to do. hopefully i can bounce back for des news. 

congrats to everyone that ran today. great showing by the FRB: fritz, andrea, emily, rossy, steve, james, ben, rachel, toby...awesome! big congrats to devra as well. it was great to see so many friends -- this is a huge part of what makes racing so fun. 

this is james in the med tent after the race.

walked about 5 miles today -- most of that was strolling through liberty park with james as we rehashed our races from yesterday. beautiful day out.

physically i'm feeling really good with very little soreness -- just some post-race stiffness and a sunburned nose (it gets a lot of exposure). 

moving forward -- i'll take a few days off this week (or more if needed) and then slowly bring the mileage back up into the 55-60 range. then it's time to figure out where my 20 seconds/mile went and get myself back to that level of fitness.

4 miles on the wood chips with james. we ran slowly, but everything felt normal. my legs actually feel better than they have in several weeks. i'll attribute that to three days off and the fact that i am no longer a slave to the diva shoes i was wear testing.

ran the cookie chaser do-si-do this morning: a 2k followed by a 5k. i ran 7:49 for the 2k (6:15 pace), and 19:33 for the 5k (6:18 pace). no lengthy explanations or excuses -- i have a pretty solid sample size at this point and it's clear i'm in a fitness funk. i guess i shouldn't have eaten all those cookies while i was running, but you can't turn down girl scout cookies, especially from a girl scout.

5.5 miles. i kept it shorter today and ran some hills in the avenues -- up M street to lindsey gardens. from there i found what looked to be a trail, but i ended up running right into the middle of a game of horseshoes. i then scrambled my way up over a ridge (to avoid going back through the horseshoe game) and got extremely dirty in the process. i made my way back out of wherever i was and then went crashing back down M street (des news training)!
