    Rested Sunday after the 11 on Saturday. Ran 7 this AM with 6 strides – one stride after each mile save the last mile. Run was a little slow but it felt good.

    What has been done or is planned by each of you?

    Ran Tuesday night in the cold and light snow – did six miles and felt good. Did not want to run this AM but did it anyway – I felt like Smeagol/Golem arguing with myself every possible excuse to not run but the smarter half won – I ran six this morning.

    Got an inhaler for the exercise induced asthma, and felt fine in my one run with it. Unfortunately, what I hoped was just a sore achilles (had been bothering me for months) is now an injury. It doesn’t seem so bad… had to resist the temptation to race a 5K that I’d already payed for today, in a last ditch attempt to break 20:00 before I begin losing fitness due to this injury. Gonna try out the stationary bike tomorrow, and see if that bothers it at all. I have a feeling the elliptical would be even worse than running, and may be the reason my achilles got hurt in the first place.

    Tue-5 – at the track3X1400 threshold

    Wed-0

    Thur-5- 4xmile threshold

    Fri-0

    Sat-10

    total 22

    the coaches have given me an easy month, working back up to miles & taking a look at the threshold pace… other parts of my life (work & kids) have me fairly well stressed out so even though the running seems easy I’m dragging the rest of the time…

    Due to my cold I could hardly breathe so I ran no more this week than those two runs. So angry that I have been unable to breathe.

    When I have a cold, the only time I can breath is when I’m running. That usually clears me right out. Unless you feel downright miserable, don’t let a little cold stop you from running.

    All easy mileage. I plan to maintain a base of 65-70 over the next 7 weeks. Then start race specific training for the Long Island marathon on May 1st.

    I had a cold since Wed; it ended in my chest on Sat but I managed to plod through the run (about 30-45 sec/mile slower than usual).

    Ed, you should try running with a cold; I have never regretted doing it. I always get home feeling better than before I left. Thats not to say I don’t hate the 1st few miles of the run; usually spend that time debating if I should turn for home and go back to bed. But after the 1st 20 minutes or so I begin to feel better, both mentally and physically, that I got out the door.

    I think an aerobic workout helps to clear the lungs (as an asmatic I often have colds that effect my breathing).

    The two runs I did that week were with the cold but the runs did not help clear me up – maybe I’m wierd that way. I could hardly function Thursday, Friday or Saturday. I don’t think that I could have paid attention to my surroundings – if I had nausea I would have thought that I had the flu – other than the nausea I felt like I had the Flu. But the cold is almost gone – finally after 8 days and I will run tonight. Will go for a very easy paced 8 miles.
