February 2020 Monthly Running Challenge
5 miles for me, today. I played more with speed, since I wasn't looking for any sort of distance record. That was fun!

I had to get up early this morning for my 10 mile run. It was hard because I went to bed too late and I wasn't quite ready to wake up. But I had to be at church early this morning to play hand bells, so I dragged myself out of bed and got ready. It was a really lovely run too. It was still darkish when i got out there but after about 30 minutes it wasn't dark and it was a really pretty morning and around 43°F and not too windy so really nice running weather. I felt really good for most of the run, but my toes felt a little achy towards the end of the run. I was thinking about running in the morning since the weather should be nice and we may have rain later in the week, but I usually take Monday as a rest day so I will probably rest and just hope it doesn't rain later in the week.
5/16/20: Run for 57th AHC Half Marathon7
YAY @LoveyChar !!! YOU DID IT! YOUSA MARATHON RUNNER NOW! W00T!1
Such a huge milestone - first marathon 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼🍾1
SUNDAY UPDATE - Pastor Vincent vs Boston!
For those new/or with short memories I recently hired a coach to help me run faster - with the goal of a BQ in 2021. It is probably an unrealistic goal, but I am not getting any younger, so going for it. Several people asked to be updated on what the coach has in for me so I post each week what the coach's plan was, and what I actually did.
DAY :::: PLAN :::: ACUTAL
Monday :::: 8 miles+ Strides :::: 9 + Strides
Tuesday :::: Rest Day ::::: Rest Day
Wednesday :::: 8 miles :::: 11 miles
Thursday :::: 8 miles :::: Rest day
Friday :::: Rest Day :::: 6 Miles on dreadmil @ MGP
Saturday ::::: 12 miles ::::: Pittsburg Auto Show, hours of walking
Sunday ::::: 7 miles+ Strides ::::: 15 Miles (forgot strides)
Total Miles: Plan 43, Actual 42
So. Yeah. I did okay on total miles at least12
Well done @LoveyChar! Congratulations!
It was raining this morning and I was so excited to run in the rain - its been hot and humid atm. But of course it stopped raining as soon as I went out and started again the moment I got home. Sigh.
I intended on doing 8k but I'd had such a bad sleep last night, I did 6.3. Well still happy with that.

Way to got @LoveyChar ! Can't wait to hear your race report!1
Huge congratulations @LoveyChar. Woo hoo! Can't wait to hear all about it. Hope you are recovering and celebrating and feeling super proud of yourself.
@T1DCarnivoreRunner that's a big medal! Love your map. Looks like you've just about got the whole midsection of the country wrapped up.
@ContraryMaryMary I stopped posting nearly so many food and cocktail photos after becoming friends on facebook with both my trainer and running coach (especially my trainer, my running coach has a bit of a junk food habit). I still do occasionally but I always think about it more!

This morning was something like 30 degrees warmer than yesterday morning, so in that respect I was very glad I had put off my long run until today. But after yesterday's intense activity I was pretty tired and not really looking forward to it. Fortunately I met up with some fun friends who kept up a good stream of chatter and ignored my whining about wanting to be done. They also kind of tricked me into running more than I intended and I ended up with my longest run since sometime back in December.
After that I headed to the rock climbing for my usual Sunday meetup. I was well and truly shot at this point, so my efforts were pretty minimal. I did make some progress on one challenging climb and "technically" got another one I've been working on - but I skipped some of the beginning so it doesn't really count. Still, I made it through the part I'd been struggling with so I felt really good. I feel like on a fresh day I could accomplish both of those. We'll see!

So tried the Raspberry Sport Energy Chews on my 15 mile run today. They definitely are easier to eat than Clif Blox and are sweeter but they did not seem as effective. I think for edibles I will stick with Clif Blox. Granted this was just one try, but they only sent one package so that is all I can try.6
@PastorVincent great job on your mileage this week! Thanks for keeping us posted on your fueling trials! It’s good info and will save me some money, not wasting time trying them
@katharmonic i LOVE rock climbing! And good job keeping going even though you’re shot!0

It is really the Skratch Sport Hydration Mix I am most interested in testing but I might have to wait for the hot weather first. Until then I will poke at the other things they have sent.
I know I can do well with SCaps+Propel+clif blox, but I am looking for something simpler. Something that I do not have to worry about timers and such on. Ideally, I will find a drink mix that I can just drink when I am thirsty and it will have fuel + electrolytes + water all in one.
