This and that.....

First, please say a little prayer for Japan the tragedy they are going through.  Any of our daily problems are nothing compared to what they are dealing with over there.

-------------------------------------

7 miles on the schedule.  You know what I did.  Unfortunately, this one I had to do on the treadmill since it was cold and rainy outside.  I really am Mr. Consistency when following a training program.  They really do payoff in the end.

-------------------------------------

Spibelt was nice enough to share the winners of their belts on the Virtual 5k on their Facebook page.  I thought that was really cool!!!



------------------------------------

I really could use a vacation.  If any of you want to put me(and my wife and two kids) up for a week in your warm State, just let me know.  No vacation due until June/July.  That sure seems like a long time away, doesn't it?  On a positive note, my marathon is a Memorial weekend so that will be a fun long weekend!

------------------------------------

Thought this was cool from Dailymile's website.  You can get all distances to put on your blogs.
------------------------------------
My next endurance goal after the marathon!  Maybe not this year, maybe not next year but someday this WILL be on my schedule.  I really need a training partner for this one to keep me motivated. Maybe Team in Training!  Crazy, I know - but then most people think it's crazy to run a marathon too.  Great little video.  Not sure I would get the tattoo though.  Haha!


-----------------------------------


Question of the day?  Anybody run a back to back half marathon before?  How did it go?  Not that I have or would but just wondering.



Have a great day and......Keep Running!!!!!

  1. You are so right about Japan..so sad.

    I like your approach of easing into doing a marathon...there's no need to rush and your body will thank you for waiting.

    I've done 1/2s two weeks apart before, but never closer together than that. The second one was a few seconds slower than the first, fwiw.

  2. Too bad you don't live in Colorado. I would definitely train with you for an IM!

  3. I think it would be so awesome to be an ironman (or at least half), but so agree that it's something I'd need a training partner for, or maybe even a coach! Especially since I'm not a good swimmer, and the most biking I've ever done was to and from class (in fact, 3 years ago I got on a bike for the first time in a while, and wiped out TWICE)

  4. I was so pumped that they put that up on their facebook!!!

    Great goals that you've got! I ran 7 on the TM yesterday too. It was just way too windy for my liking yesterday.

  5. I did two half's a week apart. Not back to back days.

  6. Are you kidding me? If I did an Ironman I'd tattoo the m-dot on my forehead.

  7. 7 miles on the treadmill are pure courage!
    Good luck on the IM, great goal.
