Here is the Link to 1000 miles in 2022. If someone can fix it or do it right, I would appreciate it

Thanks for starting the spreadsheet - I had tried to get one going but the calculations were screwy so I put it on pause. I'm sure someone will step in and fix the one you've linked..

I'm a couple of months into prep for an early year marathon and feeling a little beat up. 35 or so days to the start line and I'm remembering with vivid clarity why I stopped running open marathons a decade ago..

I'm prepping for IM Texas in April. I think it's been about 10 years since I have run a stand alone marathon. I've run a couple of half's that fit into my schedule. I think it's harder to prepare for a marathon.

I just made a few corrections. I hope you don't mind. I found a couple things that did not get transferred over correctly from last year. I was off a few days last week for vacation so I am already behind a little. Hope to make up for it here soon.

Thank you. I appreciate it. Spreadsheets are not my strong point.

Welcome back!!

Glad to have another person on the chart. There are only a few of us this time. I wasn't very active last year, but like you I am back at it this year.

Welcome Back. It feels a little lonely to start the year. Hopefully we motivate each other to finish the year.

I think 2021 was the first year since I started Triathlons in 2015 that I hit 1000 miles.  I was more a 750-850 mile triathlete runner. 

I am preparing to do The Woodlands Marathon in April.  It shares a lot of the same course at IM Texas.  This will be my 4th Marathon.  I tried to run the first two for time in 2008 and 2010.  After training 6 days a week for two years and still bonking in 2010 I swore off marathons, but I ran one with three of my siblings for moral support two years ago and it was actually enjoyable so I said I would try another one.   

Running is going well.  Now I need to work on Cycling and Swimming.

Welcome to the challenge Curtis. Hope this marathon goes better for you. I have yet to run a marathon but would love to try sometime. This is my third year here but have fell way short the past two year for various reasons. I am realistically hoping to achieve the 1000 mile mark this year.

Welcome to the group. You are going to have to give me the scouting report on the The Woodlands Marathon Course, since I do IM Texas right after.

James,

 I will definitely scope out the IM Texas course.  I got my first taste of those streets at the 10-for-Texas run in The Woodlands in September.  I plan to do part of the IM Texas course with my running group next month too.  I will have to get the maps out and compare courses so I can give a detailed report.

 

Chris,

 

I hope it goes well too.  I don't know if I will run it for time or just run it to gain some experience for future marathons.  I have a bit of pressure to do well though.  The Chevron Houston Marathon was on Sunday and 6 guys and 2 gals from my running group raced it.  All eight of them set lifetime marathon PR's.  So if I could drop a PR that would make me fit in the with cool kids.  I beat all of them at the New Years Day 5K run though so even though they can beat me by 20 minutes in a marathon they still let me hang out with them.

Curtis,

I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the course. I've never been to Houston let alone The Woodlands. I have no idea what to expect except hot. I've seen reports that the run is hilly, but what kind of hilly. Different areas have much different opinions on what hilly means.

I live in Cypress, TX about 30 minutes from The Woodlands. When I moved here 10 months ago my average elevation stat on runs dropped from 45 ft/mi to less than 1 ft/mi.  I assumed that the Woodlands would also be flat as a pancake, which it basically was, but the elevation was more like 2-3 feet a mile.  So if you are expecting zero elevation you will be surprised, but other than that the course should be flat. 

The end of the 10-mile run went through The Water District.  This is a canal with walking/running paths on both sides of it.  During the summer people rent swan-shaped paddle boats here and is it a nice area for recreation.  I am pretty sure that the end of the IM Texas Swim is in the canals and I remember for the little that I read about IM Texas last year that there are two loops of the run and that the two paces through the Water District are an iconic part of the race.  The 10-mile run did miles 4-6 along the north side of the canal and then we took a pedestrian bridge over the canal and did miles 7-9 on the Southside.  That ramp up the pedestrian bridge accounted for 80% of the elevation in the race.  I was starting to fade by mile 5 of the race and with every mile was going slower and slower and slower.  So I don't have any love for The Water District.  It was all on concrete sidewalks which I don't like as much as running on asphalt or on wider streets.  Most of the Houston area has Concrete Streets as opposed to asphalt everywhere else I have lived in the country.  The concrete is a harder surface and results in more stress than asphalt roads do on running legs.  I think that a significate portion of the IM Texas race goes through parks though where the surfaces are nicer for running than the concrete roads.  I  will know more when I get up there to do some more running and find maps though.
