I ran this for a long training run as part of my marathon plan. I didn't taper or try to race it in the least. I figured I'd go around 2:25, so I am pretty reliable :) I had been walking every .5 miles in training, but tried to test out my race strategy here. So - I walked every rest stop and every time I felt like I "needed" to (hills, to take a gel, etc.). I did try very hard not to walk just because I lost interest in running, which is a problem for me. Overall I consider this VERY successful and I enjoyed the event. I chatted a bit with a guy after, but skipped the post race festivities. They have a fun party at Lola's, but since it's a bit of a walk and I didn't know anyone it didn't seem worth it.

Training for a specific running event is not as easy as it might seem. Here are some tips and a weekly plan to avoid overtraining and to improve your performance.

I'm curious about the 'don't increase your run by more than 10% per week' rule. Is there a minimum mileage under which this doesn't apply?

My question is am I playing with fire entering the half marathon this close to my primary goal for this season which is the HIM?

I just started doing tris this summer and I have two under my belt, both sprints. Is it reasonable to build up for a Oly in early ‘09, with a HIM in Oct of ‘09

I am running Boston in April and Ironman Lake Placid is in July. I have been told that it is ambitious to think about doing an IM so close to a marathon due to the recovery time. Any suggestions?

The first time I ventured into the deep murky green lake and could not see the bottom my muscles tensed and my imagined fears surfaced. What exactly lies beneath?

How should I go about training for the marathon while also building base in the other two events? Doing this seems like it's causing me to break the 10% rule in running.

I think quite truly for the first time I 'get it'. It's not just about the fitness. It's not just about the great little endorphin rush as you hit 5, 10, 15 miles...its not just the medal at the end.
