turkey trot a bad idea? I could really use the excuse to be by
myself before what is probably going to be a long day with my in
laws. And if I end up needing a “fuck it” moment to just go, are
there any boundaries I need to consider? My local turkey trot is
4miles. And I’m not recovering from injury.
been struggling with wanting to do the workouts this past week. Is
it the time change? The cold rainy weather? I skipped the Monday
and Friday runs and walked Saturday’s long run. Am I still okay?
Reassurance, validation and your perspective is appreciated.
do you get past the fear of failure and disappointment to sign up
for a race again? Not to mention the anger over wasted race fees in
2019. I want to sign up for 3 days at the fair but $100 is a lot of
money to throw at the wall hoping I can make it stick with enough
time in Rebuild. I don’t want to race, I just want to feel like I
can run successfully.
joined Rebuild about 6 weeks ago, not because I've had an injury or
a break from running, but because I am brand new to heart rate
training, and I realized that even though I've been running 5 days
a week consistently since coming back from having my baby, I never
really slowed down enough to build my aerobic base. I signed up for
a half on November 24th before I signed up for this program, so
I've been doing rebuild lane 2 and a progressively longer long run
on the weekends (I did 2 1/2 hours last Sunday). I feel really
good, and have gotten much better at keeping my heart rate at or
below 140. My question is, how do I approach pacing with heart rate
when I run my half next week? Are there certain heart rates I
should aim for at different parts of the race, or a cap I should
keep for part of it? I'm not going for a PR or time goal, but I
think I can run faster than my 140 pace?

the planning webinar be open to the public or just for
min EE long run today. Only 7 days to race day! The closer I get,
the more terrified I get! My longest long run was 13.3ish miles,
how will I double that??? Someone please talk me off the
Coaches! A couple of questions. I know this has been answered
before but I forget how many weeks from the marathon are we
supposed to stop doing strength? Second question is that I will
have the second 20 miler on my schedule for next week’s long run. I
know from doing the first one that it was really hard for me to
recover from. I’m thinking I should do less than 20. Opinions on
that? Thank you!
like I am flirting with the onset of Plantar Fasciitis. Seeing a PT
is not an option right now because my co pay is $80 a visit with my
health insurance. Its just not in the budget right now. I am
experiencing some soreness in the arches of my feet close to the
heel. I am being more diligent with foam rolling to keep the
soreness at bay. Are there any other exercises I should be doing to
prevent this from getting worse?
planning to coach my local 10k and Half Marathon teams this year.
How do I balance that with my own training plan and not over do
may have already been covered somewhere, but if so, I missed it ...
if I want to run a 5k turkey trot on Thanksgiving, how would I
adjust the day(s) before?
a question: I’m thinking about doing a 6 hour bout at 3DATF. My
first and only marathon took me 6 hours, and I figure signing up
for 6 hours is a low-pressure way for me to repeat this feat (or
maybe more, or maybe less) in a way that will feel like winning no
matter what. I’m in Maintain. Should I just do a marathon ramp for
this? Do you think I have a good plan? My goal was to do a
marathon, but I also have feelings about my marathon time that I
haven’t quite processed all the way and was hoping this might be a
good way to train for something big (which I WANT to do) without
all the “should” things and secret goals.
