My NYC Marathon Training Journal! (Comments welcome)

I running the NYC Marathon Nov 3rd!

Now I just have to train. Iím not a fast runner and donít think I could ever qualify for Boston until Iím like 80. My dad has run Boston 5 times so I know the hard work that goes into qualifying for that race and because of that, wouldnít feel right running Boston through a charity. So NY is my Boston. Itís become a bit more magnified, because Iíve been trying to get in forever to run it so Iím a little obsessed with it.

Which leads me to why Iím doing this journal ~ I need a good training season to run the race of my life. I was supposed to do Goofy this past Jan., but I got inside my head and psyched myself out. Every night before a long run, I was ready to go but b/w then and when I woke up, I freaked out and thought I couldnít do it. I let the negative thoughts and doubts take over. I donít know why; Iíve done a marathon before so I knew/know that I can do 26.2. I did the Ĺ, but it left a bitter taste in my mouth. My hope is that w/ knowing people are going to be reading this, I have to keep on top of training and be accountable, not letting the negative thoughts take over.

A little bit about me ~ Iím 34 and live in CA. Iím a huge baseball fan, Giants, and big college football fan, LSU. I have 2 puppies, well, not really ~ my lab is 12 Ĺ and a cockapoo whoís 8. Iíve been running for about 7 years; Iíve done a marathon, 20 or so Ĺs, a couple of 10kís and 20 5kís. My PR for the Ĺ is 2:30.52, but that was a while back and Iíve been slacking a lot the past couple of years, so Iím working a lot on speed this time around. My dream goal for NY would be to get close to 5 hours, but Iím really hoping under 5:30. I signed up for the 20 week training program w/ them; I wouldíve done the 16, but Iím doing DDD Labor Day weekend and 20 weeks gives me 11 for DDD. The plan is tailored towards you and your running and comes w/ a virtual coach that you can email about pretty much anything. I like the plan, except the long runs seem a little light for me so I might combine it w/ another plan that I have.

Training officially starts next month, and right now itís just building cardio and running base back up (itís been light running since Tink in Jan.) and strength training. Iíve been talking to 1 of the trainers at the gym about the marathon and he told me about endurance strength training, so for the past week thatís what Iíve been doing. What you do is cut what you lift in half, but do 3 sets of 25-50 reps!! Itís crazy how sore Iíve been after my leg workouts ~ the 1st time I could barely walk out of the gym. Next week Iím starting body-weight moves like squats, lunges and plyometrics.

Thatís all for now! Thanks for reading and if anyone has comments or suggestions, post away!!

Today's a rest day!

When it comes to races and trips, I get total OCD. And w/ there being so many runners traveling to NY for the marathon, I had to get an early jump on everything travel related, nice thing is that it's all done already. Here are my plans:

Iím flying out Thursday before the race. Itís a red-eye so Iíll be in NY in the morning for a full day! The best part ~ the flight doesnít leave until 11pm and itís in San Jose, so no driving up to SFO. I can leave the house at 9:45 and be there at 10. Whatís even better is that I can somewhat still do Halloween. Itís my favorite holiday and love decorating the house. Downside is that b/c I wonít be there to take down the decorations, no decorations, but Iíll still be there to hand out the candy.

Iím staying in Manhattan that way I donít have to worry race morning or post race about getting to another borough. I booked early and got a ďgoodĒ deal around $275 a night, this isnít DL or WDW pricing! Itís crazy how much the hotels increase rates b/c itís marathon weekend. Iím staying until Tuesday evening so Iíll have a chance to go some sightseeing, which will be fun.

I booked my flight coming home the other day, Jet Blue was having a great sale and they donít charge for luggage, yay!

As for what Iím doing while Iím there, not really sure yet. Thereís a bar called Finnertyís that I want to go to; itís a SF Giants bar, so I have to make a stop there! The season will be over by then but hopefully theyíll win the World Series again so we can have a few celebratory shots there. And TiffanyísÖ they have commemorative charms for the race. I canít not go! Other than that, no clue yet, but Iím sure that will change soon.

I'm trying to figure out away to upload my race schedule, hopefully I can figure it out somehow. (If anyone knows, let me know) It's supposed to be on the warm side this weekend, mid 80s, so it will be early, early runs.

Popping in for an update on the past few days.

Saturday was an easy short run. But totally nerded out and went to the library for a couple of hours to finally combine all my weight training exercises and kick out a strength training plan to go along w/ my running schedule.

Sunday, no running but gym. Got in 45 min of cardio, bike for 30 min and stairmaster for 15. After that, it was a leg strength day so I started on the "body-weight" moves and plyometrics. (Still a bit sore today. ) I was strength training for almost an hour!! I have never worked out that hard before or been that hungry after the gym as I was. I'm hoping once my body gets used to the new moves, it'll be a tad easier.

Yesterday was an off day.

This morning went to the gym ~ same cardio from Sun, but did arms and back weight training. Not as much weight training as I wanted this morning, but I got there late and had to pick up milk on the way home before work. I'm 50/50 on going to a dance class tonight (combo hip hop and zumba). We'll see how I feel when I get home tonight. I really want to go, but at the same time, I have a run and gym early tomorrow plus 2 races this weekend. Nothing big ~ a color run and 12k, but doing a double day followed by an early morning might be too much for race week.

I had my races this weekend. Color Run was great; Bay to Breakers was not.

Sat morning was the Color Run w/ my younger cousin. It was a blast. Itís a fun run, no timing, which is good b/c itís nice to have a reminder once in a while to remember to have fun and not always put pressure on a specific time. The course was nice; it was close to downtown and started at HP Pavilion where the Sharks play. They had 7,000 runners and it was the 1st year in SJ which was a phenomenal turn out. There were also a ton of little kids, which is good. They were having a ton of fun, covered head to toe in color. We hung around a bit afterwards w/ the DJ and color party, but heading out pretty soon after b/c I had to head up to the city for my bib.

I dropped off my cousin and wiped off as much color as I could, then drove up to the expo for my bib for Sun. I donít know if itís b/c I got up there a bit after it opened so the rush was gone or what, but not only did I find parking right away, I found free parking. In San Francisco!!! How often is that going to happen? The expo was really small, couldnít have been more than 15 or so vendors. Itís sad, b/c itís a huge race here thatís been going on forever (102nd this year) and there are a lot of runners (21,000 yesterday). But the upside to a small expo is you can get in and out, I was done in Ĺ hour.

Got home Sat. afternoon, showered off the color and cleaned the color in the car and got everything ready for Sun. I had everything laid out and just had to get dressed and go.

Dark and early Sun. morning, my alarm went off at 4am. Got dressed, feed the dogs, grabbed my food and left the house. The race is a 12k (7.46 miles) and point to point, b/c of that there arenít any drop bags like a longer or loop race. This is where my problems started. I was planning on going to the gym after the race, so I just had my sweats and an extra shirt to change at the gym afterwards. I got up to the city around 5:15 and had no problems w/ the garage. The 2nd parking plus of the race was that if you show your bib, itís only $10!

The weather was sunny, no fog, and warm but not hot. It was great, however when there wasnít shade along the course, even though it was at your back, you could still feel it beating down on you.

I got into my corral around 6:15 or so and started getting warmed up. Iíve always watched the race on tv and knew it was a fun race, but the start was just as fun. About 20 min before it started, people started flinging tortillas around like Frisbees. The 1st 1/10 of a mile you were running on nothing but tortillas. And the costumesÖ people are so creative it really blows my mind sometimes. But it seemed like super heros were the fave. My 1 big goal for the race was not to see any naked people. Yes, this is something to wish for when running this race, people really do run/walk the race naked. Sadly, I made it 5 min in my corral before I saw my 1st butt. They banned it along w/ floats and alcohol a few years back, but some people still do it.

There was a moment of silence for Boston and then we were off. The 1st mile was good, didnít start off strong which can happen and felt good. However, no sooner than passing the mile marker, I felt the bottom of my feet start to get irritated. I donít know what it is, but the past couple of years the bottom outside part of my feet get irritated really fast and easily. I used to be able to wear flip flops all day in DL and have no problem, now if I can get to lunch, Iím lucky. And the flip flops w/ little bumps on the sole, forget it. Knowing this, I always glide the bottom of my feet for longer runs. But, b/c there was no bag drop and I was going to the gym afterwards, I put my shoes on in the morning instead of my flip flops and gliding like normal. It kept getting worse and worse as the race went on. It wasnít soon after mile 1Ĺ that I had to start walking. I was so . By the time I got to the shuttle after the finish, my whole foot felt squishy and I was worried that when I took my sock off, it would be nothing but blood. Luckily when I got home, it was blood blister. A blister the size of a Ĺ dollar coin, but at least it didnít pop.

Aside from being famous for the atmosphere of the race, itís also famous for the Hayes Street Hill. Itís an 11% grade incline, thereís even a $ prize to whomever gets to the top 1st. I knew this going in and had respect for it, what I didnít know was that not only is it longer than I thought, but you turn onto Hayes w/ about ⅓ to Ĺ mile still to go. Itís just there, mocking and taunting you. If youíve ever seen a picture of crazy hills in SF or have an idea of what 1 would look like, that is what it is. If I could train on this hill every week, I could rock NY like nobodyís business! The upside to going uphill is that usually, there is a downhill. And while it was only a block, it was still a relief to my quads.

After the hill, you go into Golden Gate Park for the rest of the run. You go by a glass observatory that houses flowers, a lake, some buffalo, itís so pretty. About Ĺ way into the park, the ocean breeze hits you and it felt so good. At the end of the park you turn onto the Great Highway and finish next to the ocean. I know Iím a beach girl, but really, you couldnít ask for a better place to finish a race, except for Central Park and Boylston Street.

My official time was 2:04. It was nowhere close to the under the 1:30 I wanted, but w/ my foot as bad as it was, Iíll take it. Aside from the bad run, it was a great race. It was a fun atmosphere, although not 100% for kids, costumes and people are great, and the course is awesome. As much as you may hate the hill, itís SF and you canít have a race w/o some hills. There were a lot of spectators having house parties, cheering you on and playing music. Thereís also a party atmosphere after the race w/ some booths and music. It was a great race. Definitely adding it to my yearly calendar like the DL races!

So no running yet this week. Kinda of letting my blister toughen up. Monday was an off day and so is tomorrow, although I've had a lot of energy this week so we'll see.

Even though no running, I've been going to the gym still. Tuesday I went to the gym ~ 30 min on the bike and upper body and back weights. I wanted to do more cardio, but my foot was still a little tender. Yesterday was 30 min bike and 10 min stairmaster with leg weights and abs. This morning I got back on the Elliptical for the 1st time since I tore my MCL last summer! I don't have any problems with it now and don't feel it running, but I was still a bit leery of it, because it was the 1 machine at the gym I could really feel the tear, especially when I go backwards. I felt it once while I was on there, but that was it! Weights were arms again; and then when I got home I hit the heavy weight bag for some boxing.

And if anyone's a nerd like me, the National Geographic Bee is on Discovery tonight at 7pm. I never know any of the answers, but it's always fun to watch. However, not as fun as the Spelling Bee next week. Oh my god, I can't even tell you how excited I am for that. Those kids are so cute and smart as ...!!!

Today is a rest day!

Saturday I got a short run in, nothing fancy, just nice and easy.

Yesterday was... long. Alarm went off and I did not want to wake up. I just wanted to stay in bed and sleep in. I was about to skip my run, but I knew my workout for the gym afterwards and that I wouldn't be able to get one in today. So I got up and went out got it done. It was foggy/cloudy so I went out w/ a pullover on, but by 1/4 mile in, it was off. It was actual humid outside! I got 5 in, but for some reason my Nike+ says 5.6 so I have to recalibrate it I think. And as cheesy as it sounds, you really do feel better after you get out there, you just have to drag your foot out the front door.

Got home and hung out for a bit before heading out to the gym. At the gym, I got in 30 on the bike and 15 on the stairmaster. That was the easy part. I was in the weight room for over an hour trying to kick out my strength training routine; I did body weight stuff, not machines. A lot of squats, step ups, box jumps, that kind of thing. It really isn't a lot of moves, but for some reason it just seems to take a long time, and my legs are still getting used to it I think. I pretty much exhausted my legs yesterday, which is a good thing once in a while to get them ready to be out on the road for a long time. I actually got home and feel asleep on the couch as soon as I layed down. That's never happened before. The good thing is that my legs aren't bad today. They're heavy and I know I couldn't get a run in, but not really sore.

Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day!

Today is officially Marathon Opening Day!!! Everyone not guaranteed an entry or charity running it finds out whether or not they get in today. And yes, I am a dork and got excited for today even though I know I'm already running it. But what's even sadder, is that I was writing out my training schedule to print out (their's doesn't print out right for some reason) and when I got to Week 17, writing out the paces and mileage at what pace, I actually got excited for that as well.

As for maintenance/training the past couple of days, yesterday Iw as at the gym. 30 mins on the bike and 15 min on the elliptical. Strength training was upper body and back.

This morning I got out for a short run. Wasn't fun ~ breaking in my new shoes and that's never fun the 1st run or 2. After that, hit the gym and got in 30 min bike and 15 min stairmaster. Today was a legs and abs day, but legs were on machines so a lot easier than Sunday workouts.

Someone posted a facebook page for the marathon so I got in on that yesterday. They had a plank challenge up for anyone who is/was interested. I finished 1 a couple of weeks ago and this 1 is a little different so I'll give it a shot. You start at 20 sec and end at 5 min. In 30 days!! Here it is if anyone's interested:

Got my official letter/email last night letting me know that I was in! I already knew that, but it's still fun to read. The cool thing was that there was a link where you could add a badge to your fb page. I'm not a big fb person, it's mostly for race pages and a Dis running group and a NY running group, but had to add it. They had a whole bunch of different ones to choose from like I run for a PR, Family, NY, Boston, Life, etc. This is mine:

I love it!

As for this morning, it was horrible. My lab woke me up around 1:45 to go outside, and then I couldn't fall asleep the rest of the night. I dozed a couple of times, but no more than a total of 1/2 hour. I was supposed to get a 5 miler in, but was to exhausted. I went to the gym for my regular workout and was going to do 1/2 hour on the elliptical and then stairs for 15, but got on the elliptical and my legs were absolute lead. I could barely get 10 min in before I had to get off. I hoped on the bike for 30, but it was just bad. Strength training was upper body~ got it all in but it wasn't pretty. I know every workout and run isn't going to be good, but the bad ones just leave you feeling blah the rest of the day. And the 1 time I needed my crush to come into the gym to wake me up w/ all the nervous energy I get when I see him, he didn't show up today.

But on the upside, the Spelling Bee is tonight!! Super excited!!

Tomorrow is an off day and then Saturday morning is the SJ Giants (the SF Giants minor league team) 5k run. It's supposed to be really hot Sat, around 92 or so, but the race goes off at 7:30 so fingers crossed it's not an early hot and can get it done before it gets warm.

Exactly 5 months from today, I will be all finished. I was thinking about that at the gym, b/c of the time change and the time I was at the gym, I would have been running. I kept trying to picture where I would be as I was on the bike.

But anyways back to the present...

Yesterday was the 5k. It was fun, nice course. It wasn't too hot, but at the end when you turned out of the park back towards the stadium, the last 2/3 of a mile or so, you were on the street and no shade and you could feel the sun coming down. But it was good though, you run into the stadium through center field and end just before 2nd base. The best/cutest part was that they had the Jr. Giants kids out there handing out your medals. So adorable!!

And now, racewise, I'm done until DDD Labor Day weekend. I don't know if I'm more excited about the races or finally going back down to DL! Last year, I had an AP and completely took advantage of it. But when it expired after Tink, I didn't renew it, b/c I knew w/ NY I wouldn't be able to get down there as fast and now DL is playing all these commercials on tv and the radio, it's like they're taunting me. As far as other races, I was really tempted to run the San Francisco 1/2 in a couple of weeks and the SF Giants race in Aug. I really want to do the Giants one b/c you get a Sergio Romo bobblehead that I saw and love and want, but w/ training picking up soon and Disney adding the 10k to Tink, I'm not. Oh well, sometimes you can't run them all. If I ever win the lottery though...

No running this morning. I was planning on a 7 miler before the gym, but last night I was looking at my blister from B2B and noticed some liquid in there from yesterday morning. It didn't/doesn't hurt or feel agitated, and I stuck a pin in there to get some of the liquid out, I just figured better safe than sorry. So instead of a light run on Tuesday, I'll do my 7 then.

At the gym, did my usual bike for 30 and stairs for 15, but did intervals on the stairs. After that, it was body weight strength training. Not as much as last week, was a little nauseaus, but still got a lot in. What's really interesting is that in the 3-4 weeks that I've gone from strength training at the weight I was doing, to endurance strength training and body weight training the difference I can tell in my legs. You'd think that even though the reps are high, you're at a way lower weight and your muscles wouldn't be as defined, but I'm really starting to notice a difference. I also learned today from one of the trainers that I've been talking to, that the stairmaster is more of a muscle builder than I cardio machine. Who knew? I also thought it was a cardio machine. He suggested just sticking to the bike and elliptical and even changing my routines on those to stickly interval training. I usually do the random setting, so I'll play around w/ intervals this week and see how it goes. The upside to that is that it's also a great fat burner!

On a non-me running/bragging note, this weekend was the high school state championship for track and field. My younger cousin, who's like my little brother, qualified as a team in the 4x100, 100 and 200. Friday were the qualifiers and he qualified for the 100 and for the 4x100. Yesterday were the finals and they finished 6th in the 4x100, getting on the podium, and he finished 8th in the 100!!! I was so happy; I don't know how parents do it when their kids are in finals. I was so nervous right before they were supposed to go off and was just staring at my phone waiting for the update. Now he's off to run at Cal Poly!

So..... really bad running week. Hopefully it is all out of my system ~ I was so mad at the gym today it wasn't even funny; I left early. Had 2 short runs this week and this morning it was horrible ~ it was like it I had never exercised before. I couldn't get my breath it was just, bad.

But onto happier news, DDD is 12 weeks out starting tomorrow!!! And not only that, I signed up for the GSC in Feb! Plus, I was at Sports Basement today and they had my running shoes on sale for $90 instead of $120 and I had an additional 10% off. So even though I just broke in new ones, I'll need a new pair mid-Sept. Bargain!!! I also stocked up on gu's and chomps for the next month or so and now I'm good to go. If anyone is looking for a new flavor, the Stingers brand came out w/ a cherry cola flavored chomp/chew. Yum!

Fingers crossed for a better running week! Hoping to kick out 22 or so. And even though it's 12 weeks out until DDD, it's my last week as a free girl until Nov.

i just joined the american cancer society in order raise funds and get a bib. did you have guaranteed entry from last year? i'm doing the 9+1 this year so i'll have guaranteed for next year but i'm happy this year to be raising money. it won't be easy but it's for a great cause.

what is your training LR schedule like? i'm doing the galloway training and hope to do some long runs with the ACS folks in central park too.

Yay!! Have you run it before? I did have a guaranteed entry, but it was from the 3 no's not that I was supposed to run last year.

I actually finished figuring out my training schedule last night. I signed up for the 20 week training program through them. I liked everything on the schedule but the LRs; it just seemed like they weren't long enough. I've used schedules from coolrunning.com before for 1/2's, but their long runs for the full are a bit much so I averaged out the 2. I now have 2 16's, 17,18 and 2 20's. 1 16 and the 17 are week 9 & 10 right before DL and then the other 16, 18 and 20's are Sept/Oct, mixed in w/ shorter weeks and taper.

I would love 5:00!! That's my dream number and the ideal run/race I have in mind. But w/ it being NY and taking it all in along w/ all the people, I'll be happy w/ anything under 5:30. Although the lower the better.

Good luck w/ training!!

Got a short run and gym in today. Run was good, not great, but it's slowly getting back to where it was in the past. And for the 2nd time in as many weeks, I saw people running along my route. I have 2 routes that I use, 1 for short runs and 1 for long runs. In the all the time I've been running my short route, I hardly ever see 1 person every couple of weeks. Today I passed by 4 people!

Gym was short, I have a longer run tomorrow morning. I got in 30 min on the bike, no intervals just the random setting and lower legs. I used the foam roller when I got home b/c of the run tomorrow morning and weights today and you never feel the soreness in your muscles until roll over that wonderful creation.
