Cari - Welcome!!!! I'm pretty slow myself and I agree that it means you get to enjoy the scenery! Although on my 1st marathon I sort of wished I didn't see quite so much scenery by the end.
John - The fact that you're finishing the Goofy is impressive enough!
Sarah - Congrats on your baby girl! I also have a son followed by a daughter (followed by another son - just so you know what comes next! ).
Pam - I'm so sorry about the knees and the energy issue. I gained 10lbs since I started training for races and can't figure out the food thing either.
Jeremy - Sorry to hear that winter weather is affecting your training. I've wimped out and decided to use my treadmill on those cold days!!!

I did my 1st post-marathon run on Monday. 3.1 miles on the treadmill. Felt great! Now to start training for my next 1/2 marathon in April.... Wish I could be at the Princess. Maybe next year??? I'm considering the Tower of Terror race or maybe Wine & Dine. We'll see what the hubby says.

Happy Thursady Warriors!!!

Hope everyone is doing well. Welcome to the new Warriors!

Not much to report from down here. I ACTUALLY SWAM yesterday! A short 1300 meters. Felt pretty good for not getting in the pool for far too long.

Afterwards came home and ran about 5.5 miles in 49 minutes.

Other than that it's been a pretty FRICKIN' aggravating few days. Too much superfluous crap has been rearing its ugly head recently. Hopefully calmer days are ahead.

Stay safe and well!

HAPPY SATURDAY to all!

Just wanted to remind everyone that during your races you shouldn't forget that you paid for the pain so make sure you get every pennies worth.

Effects from Goofy are minimal now so I officially consider myself in training for my first 1/2 Ironman Duathlon that will be on March 25th. Started out today with a 1 mile warm-up walk then a 56 mile bicycle ride and finished with a 10K walk. Feeling it a little right now but should be OK for walk tomorrow AM and then an easy 100 mile bike ride on Monday with my best friend to celebrate his 60th. B-day.

Have fun when you train and stay healthy.

I'm finally starting back into my training after the marathon. I had a crazy bad week at work so I did one mid-week run. This morning I did 8.57 miles on the treadmill. I took it slow but my legs are definitely still recovering from the marathon!

Happy Sunday Warriors!

I got my 8 miles (88 laps around the Y track) done yesterday- it wasn't pretty, I will never go longer than 5 again without a sports drink of some kind! I sweat alot and by 5.5 I was having cramp issues in my calves (even wearing compression sleeves (? is that the right term for legs?) on them).
I finished with a bit more walking than I normally would have done, and will go 8 again with sports drinks so I know if that's the issue or a different gait is the issue. My energy level seems to be back to more normal this last week so I'm hoping it'll stay that way the way I'm eating now. (somehow once I leave home for a race the carb issue seem to solves itself eating out more LOL)

Have a great week Warriors

Pam- Nice job on the 8 miler. Sorry to hear you had the problems.
Amanda - 8 Miles is your "recovery run". Hope your recovery continues to go smoothly.
John - Good luck with your tri training.
JimB- Hope thing are going better.

AFM - The weather here in Ohio has been strange. Friday night into Saturday we had 6 inches of Snow, and south of us there was .5 in of Ice and a couple of inches of snow. I'll take the snow over the ice anyday. Today it's in the 50's and we had thunderstorms last night that melted most of the snow. I had a pretty good run today. I did 4 miles on the paved trail near my house. The first 1.5 miles were clear, the last .5 mile before turnaround was slush covered. This week is technically the first week of training for my spring half marathon in May. That being said, I built in a huge amount of slip room for the weather. I'm also going to try sticking at higher miles longer to help me decide if I want to make the jump to the Full marathon for Fall.

Happy Tuesday from the land that winter forgot!

It's been a really warm few days down in sunny Florida. Highs in the mid-upper 70's.

Training is moving forward slowly. I put in 40 miles on the bike yesterday, followed by a 2400 yard swim and 5 mile run today.

I'm about 85% committed to do the Florida 70.3 1/2 Ironman in May, but still not quite ready to flip the switch yet. Still not quite "water comfortable" yet. Hopefully soon.

Next up for me: The Gate River Run 15k in March.

Stay safe warriors!!

Good morning, Warriors!

I'm struggling to get back to a schedule now that marathon weekend is over. I do think I needed a little recovery time for various aches and pains, but I'm feeling good now and need to recommit. All I've done the last two weeks are some three-mile treadmill runs.

This week I'm signing up for the Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston, where I'll be going with some great women from my husband's office. I hope one of them is going to be willing to tow me up the bridge! This will be my first time in this race. I've seen that bridge....YIKES!

Have a fantastic day, everybody.

No school today because of the ice on the roads- but as soon as it's safe to drive I'm heading to the Y to get my long in. (I'll also do my lifting that I'm missing tomorrow to pick DH up at the airport.)

Happy Sunday Warriors!!

It's almost cool here today. Highs in the 60's. Tomorrow in the 30's in the morning. Fortunately my new "swimming hole" is indoors!!'

I finally took the big step(leap)(bungie jump)(skydive)(rocket launch)(setting hand grenade off in my face) etc., etc., etc. and registered for the Florida 70.3 Half Ironman in May.

Somebody PLEASE tell me what the @*#&$@*&!!! I have done........?

Soooooooo, first post registration "brick" was today. 21 1/2 miles biking +4.3 mile running.

Happy late Monday all!!!

Great job registering for the 70.3.

Kathy purchased the Garmin 910XT for me on Saturday. Played with it Saturday afternoon and used it yesterday for a 3.5 miler by myself then a 5K with Kathy after she got up at 5:15AM. It was great.

Went out today for my second training session in preparation of the 72.2 Duathlon March 25th. Being so inspired with the 910XT I started with a 3.2 mile walk in 34 minutes then hopped on the bike. Felt good even with gusting 25mph winds I road the 56 miles in 3:06:00 plus I continued for another 4 miles just because. Next up was my second walk and did 14 miles in 2:36:00. Of coarse I did not include transition times because every time I got back to the house I had to feed Kathy's Persian. The anesthesia for his Lion's Cut messed up his brain so he takes food only in small amounts and very slowly.

Now that I know the distances are no problem I'll work on my speed.

Have a wonderful week everybody.

We're having great weather in Indiana (maybe God is smiling on the Superbowl?) anyway it's supposed to be in the mid to upper 50's here today so I'm going to actually hit the road today- it will be great to get outdoors for a change.

Hi Everyone

Pam - The weather has been nice here as well.

John - Nice job on the 3.2 mile walk. I can just barely run that fast. Also hope you enjoy the new Garmin.

JimB - Good luck training for the half ironman.

GBBTomorrow - Hope your having luck getting started back up with your training. I know I took a couple of weeks off after the Disneyland half marathon.

AFM - Just noticed it's been a couple of weeks since I last posted. Last Friday was technically my first long run training for my spring half. Unfortunately, I went out too fast, and something happened about 5.5 miles into my 7 mile long run. I pulled something and ended up needing to walk the final 1.5 miles back. Saturday and Sunday were rest days. Monday, I tried going out again for some easy miles. It didn't hurt as bad has it had after it happened, but it still hurt a little bit to run. I decided to up it to another 3 days off. Today was my first day back. I ended up doing an easy 5 miles. For most of it I did run :30/walk 1:00. Prior to pulling that muscle, I was doing 3-3.5 miles of straight running on my 5 mile days with the rest being warmup and cooldown, and my longer runs had been run 2:00/walk 1:00. I took it easy and it felt pretty good. I think I'm going to need to watch the pace of my long runs a little bit closer especially over the next couple of weeks. I'm going to continue to take it easy next week and can hopefully get back to regular training the week after that.

Just reading that made me exhausted! And that is why I haven't been able to commit to anything longer than a sprint tri!

On that note, Jim for signing up for the Florida 70.3!

To you biking/tri people.... do I really need a road bike for seriously training for anything more than 15-20 miles? I'm guessing the answer is yes? I have a really great hybrid bike (no fancy pedals, either), but I have so many people flying past me on the bike section of the tri's that I've done. Is that really all difference in the bike, or am I just a really crappy cyclist?

AFM.... I am having hip and ligament issues and am having trouble walking the dogs around the block currently. So, lots of swimming in my near future. 40 minutes in the pool this morning - mostly swimming, but a bit of pool running to keep the legs moving without the impact. Is it May, yet?
