March Update
by on Thursday, March 31, 2016  (5 comments)

Hello one and all,

March was a pretty good month overall. While I only got 26 runs in for the month it was my fourth highest monthly total mileage ever. I ran a total of 212.90 miles in a total time of 28 hours and 13 minutes. That is some serious base training (for a recreational competitive runner.)

I had a minor injury issue that took me out of running for three days and I had a cold that made it tough for four days. Both of my calves were experiencing a lot of pain right where they connect to the Achilles Tendon - I could not run at all. But three days off and I was good to go. The cold - well - it was a cold.

This is turning out to be a great year so far. First quarter of 2015 I had only 42.52 (yes less than 50) miles. Compare this to first quarter of 2016 where I have 660.26 miles.

Add to this - fourth quarter of 2014 compared to fourth quarter of 2015 and you get a serious difference. Fourth quarter of 2014 was only 4 (four) miles. Fourth quarter of 2015 was 386.22.

So in the past six months I have run 1,046.48 miles compared to 46.52 miles over the same time period the previous year! That is 1,000 more miles!!!!!!

I am in a much better place now and looking forward to the change from base to race training.

Thanks Double - All in hopes of obtaining that sub 30 for the team (and myself) at Al's!

You're getting in some great work Ed. This is going to pay off big. We'll see where you are in regards to sub-30 as the year goes on but I do know you're setting yourself up for a very good year.

That sub 30 at Al's is a dream of mine. I have gotten as close as 31:54 but I know I can do better. My training is putting me close and I will need all the uncontrollable chips to fall in place on race day.

Dreams are good to have. Just so we keep them in perspective.
