  • Just spotted the @mobycarp news on my strava feed. Very sad. Fondly remember his posts as he had a different approach as an elite grandmaster from most of us casual runners. Still running (120 miles last month, likely 100 this month) but I'm up abo…
  • Thanks for the well wishes all for Boston. As @MobyCarp mentioned, I hit the half right under my BQ pace (1:38) then slowed for the second half. In short, I didn't get in enough hills during my training cycle down in Florida, my quads fell apart by …
  • Month 1 with a coach has been going OK, and I haven't started hating the structure. Still, down to about 5 days/running per week as he's really upping my swim volume to 12K/week, and keeping my bike volume around 200 miles/week. Still, he has me do…
  • After 2 days of non-running (per plan from my coach), I went for a 90 minute run around mid day. Should have started earlier though as my watch showed an average temperature of 97 (weather station showed 90, but most of the run was on exposed concre…
  • 6 more miles this afternoon w. strides at the end. 10/1 - 6 miles (Sunday night football) 10/3 - 6 miles (w. lots of odd drills & strides) 10/4 - 6 miles (off the bike) 10/5 - 6 miles (w. strides) Total: 24 miles Goal: 130 miles Remaining: 106…
  • Just 6 today after a hard ride with teammates. Legs were flat but I'm blaming my lack of calories. 10/1 - 6 miles (Sunday night football) 10/3 - 6 miles (w. lots of odd drills & strides) 10/4 - 6 miles (off the bike) Total: 18 miles Goal: 130 …
  • Coach had a bunch of running drills on the schedule for today (search youtube for "Lauren Fleshman running drills" for them) as they managed to get my heart rate up mid-run. My form was OK, but I could feel some lateral pressure on my legs & ank…
  • Ok - took off a month after racing season ended, and I'm slowly returning to the grind. Decided to go the coach route after barely missing a kona (Full Ironman World Championship) slot at my full ironman race. Still, coach is pretty swim focused wit…
  • Quietly lurking here to find out about you and @mobycarp. Glad you pulled the trigger as well as it'll be nice to meet up there (got my acceptance email a bit ago) if the BAA doesn't do too much cutting to the field size. Keeping my fingers crossed …
  • Got in 8 miles of recovery today as I met up a friend at a gym we both belong to up north. Ended up calling an audible and doing the distance on adjacent treadmills, as I was a bit sick of the heat from yesterday's long run. Got through 8 easy @ 9 p…
  • @MNLittleFinn - main concern is cost, and given I get all of the functionality out of the 2 others I need for a full IM, I'm a bit hardheaded as the $500 is a big pill to swallow (although some expos feature 10% discounts). Hope your calves recover.…
  • Made the mistake of waiting until 10:30am for my 20 miller today as I was doing 10 of it with a friend and didn't want to start before meeting her in case of some logistics changes. Paid for it as the thermometer was up to 85 by an hour into the run…
  • Noticed the slow @MobyCarp half on strava along with the @MNLittleFinn marathon, so figured I'd check on them here. Glad both made sense and congrats on each! Took some light days after a heavy week on the bike, but ramping back up with 20 tomorrow…
  • Ok - just a quick mid-month check in. Falling a touch behind on the running goal as I've learned to embrace the treadmill here in Florida, and am piling up the miles on the bike instead (570 so far). Back up north Monday and planning to spend more t…
  • With both the Ironman 70.3 World Championships coming up in early September, and an outside shot at qualifying for the IM 140.6 World Championships (Kona) at my late August race, I'm looking to ramp volume up further this month, and get in some soli…
  • Decided to let go of the goal for total miles, but as it was raining and muggy this afternoon, I ended up doing my last 17 miles indoors. As I wanted to mix up the usual treadmill monotony, I ended up turning into into a "brick" workout, alternating…
  • Got hot and humid earlier today (despite being up north) so just did 10 easy miles. Legs felt off at the end and I still had a swim & bike ride left on the schedule for today so I left it at 10 debating just running to/from tomorrow's baseball g…
  • Most coaches seem to like a 2-1 or 3-1 build-stepback cycle approach to training, but instead of heavy concentrated all-around weeks, I've definitely been yo-yo'ing by discipline independently as a heavy bike week might be a light run week, or light…
  • Totally slacked off on running after returning to Florida, and have been piling up the miles on the bike and in the pool instead as it is just too darn hot. Still, got through a handful of miles on the mill (mostly) to maintain some semblance of run…
  • Got in an extra 3 yesterday on the treadmill to get in some speedwork as I'm now past the 1 day/mile post race easy period. Was a bit dead today, so left it at 11 this AM (10 with friends, then 1 on the mill before hitting the showers) as it was get…
  • Made it out for 10 miles this AM with a friend, so feeling a bit better. Got caught in the rain too long on my ride yesterday to make it back in time for my run. 6/1 - 2 miles 6/3 - 3.5 miles 6/4 - 13 miles (1:36 run @ IM Raleigh 70.3) 6/6 - 3 mile…
  • Just one data point, but going into my 3:08 at Pittsburgh last year (7:05ish pace) - as you mentioned interest in that race - my normal run was around a 10-11/mile pace. Did speed work once/week closer to MP (mostly yasso 800s, 400-800-1200-1600-120…
  • Just a mile of recovery off the bike yesterday, then got in 10 miles with a buddy this afternoon. Only 7 miles behind schedule for the month at the mid point (including pre-race taper and post race recovery) so not too worried about completing the c…
  • Ended up meeting friends mid-day to run, and it was about 90 w. humidity so we ended up heading into the woods/trails right away to try to escape some of the heat. Still, only got through about 9 miles, and I accepted a 1 mile car ride back to the g…
  • Did a bit of a hilly route today and my running partner fell apart a few miles in. Still, got through 4 without him at a reasonable pace and managed a decent pace. Planning to go heavy today on bike/swim as well and will take a light running day tom…
  • Felt much much better on my 12 mile run with my friend this morning. Mostly recovered from last weekend's race, which is good as I'm planning on ramping back up my mileage in the next few weeks (as Trainingpeaks has two consecutive 50 mile run/200 …
  • Hit up the trails for 10 miles with a friend this morning which was nice, but I was still a bit sluggish. 6/1 - 2 miles 6/3 - 3.5 miles 6/4 - 13 miles (1:36 run @ IM Raleigh 70.3) 6/6 - 3 miles 6/7 - 7 miles 6/8 - 3.5 miles (post ride) 6/10 - 10 mi…
  • Plans for a bike/run brick workout with my team were thwarted by the weather, but I ended up doing both today (easy) separately this afternoon in the icky humid weather once the rain stopped. Legs still felt a bit sore & dead, but I figured some…
  • Took a rest day yesterday then did a nice slow 3 mile recovery run on the treadmill this afternoon. Planning a swim for later then a harder ride/run brick for tomorrow, but nothing under a 9 minute pace for at least a week and a half. 6/1 - 2 miles…
  • Ok - mileage has been falling apart the last 3 months as I've gotten away from here (down to 150'ish miles from 180 last year and up to 168 pounds from 154), and I need to get the mileage back up as I'm starting to think of myself as more of a biker…
