Flying Pig Marathon Training - Week 15 - Weekly Running Update: March 31, 2019

Hi Everyone!

Hope you are doing well! How's everyone's training going, any recent races or one's coming up? Which one's? 


This was week 15 marathon training for me, which also included a half marathon, the Love Run Philadelphia! Hope to get my weekly miles in and still do somewhat respectable on Sunday, we'll see how that went! 


My Week in Training:  


Monday: 7 miles before work. First time setting my alarm clock in 9 days, was nervous about readjusting my sleep schedule back from vacation. Sunday, relaxed after chores and went to bed EARLY! Up before my alarm clock! Coffee, work out (wasnt tired?), hydrate, and out the door by 5:50. Pacing: thought 8:30 may be a bit aggressive for being tired, but wasn't as tired as expected. Settled in the 8:20's. Hills throughout, felt them but much better than expected today. 
Monday was also new shoe day! Brooks Levitate 2, got these bad boys for xmas! Been resisting breaking them in, until now. Will be keeping a close eye on their mileage, want them broken in, but fresh for Spring race season!
Tuesday: 4 miles before work. Slightly tired, actually slept until my alarm. Coffee, work out, hydrate, stetch, and out the door by 6. Thought it was spring? A bit chilly this morning. Pacing: planned on 8:15-8:20. Felt good. 8:10/8:16 before/after the worst hills and back to 8:10 to maintain.  
Wednesday: 7 miles before work. A bit more tired today (although my watch sleep app says almost 7 hrs). Up a few min before my alarm.  Coffee, work out, hydrate, stretch, and out the door around 6. I primarily use my phone/Nike app for tracking my run. I also use my watch to sync to Strava for Squadrunner. Yesterday, after my run, realized my gps was disabled. Maybe from power saving mode before shutdown. I ensure it was enabled. A min in, distance still at 0.0. Restarted my watch (guess I could have done that before my run?). Fine after reboot. Already 3 min in on Nike.. For today's run, was groggy, quads a bit heavy, but made it through my hills at my goal pace without over exertion. Mid run: had to talk a call from work. Tried not to pause but couldn't hear along the road and my running. Post run, pausing my phone one handed, dropped it! No new cracks, case helped!
Thursday: 5 miles before work. Thu is usually 1 mile day. Regular scheduled miles already done by Wed (m,w,f miles done) but decided to do a few more miles since I will be cutting Sunday short. Excellent night's rest, in bed early and woke up by 4:30. Coffee, work out, hydrate and out the door by 5:50. Pacing: goal was 8:20, but was comfortable this morning at 8:10.
Friday: 1 mile before work. Thursday. Hydrated all day. After work, indulged in a few adult beverages while watching baseball. In bed on time, with plans on sleeping a few extra minutes. Up a few times, but well rested. Coffee, work out (slowly),  hydrate, stretch and out the door by 6:05. Usually try to push it on 1 mile day, but wanted to do a comfortable pace around 8. Maintained just below. Felt good. A bit warm today/tomorrow, but stuck with long sleeves. Definitely felt the temp change during the cool down.
Saturday: 1 mile. No long run today. :( Tapering for tomorrow. Saturday rest days are so weird! Anyone else agree? Up till 10:30, slept till 6! took my time getting ready. Coffee, stretch, and out the door around 7:30. Goal was to do a comfortable 8:00. Worked on cadences, slightly faster than planned. Exerted a little, but didn't over do it. Maintained under 7:45. Now what to do on  Saturday before a race? Cant do yard work, will wake up with a sore back! lol.. Light indoor chores. Cleaning, bills, taxes, etc... 
Sunday: 13.1 miles. Scheduled for 20! Love Run Philadelphia half marathon today. I did 20 milers on week 11 & 13 out of guilt of falling short today. Hopefully three 20 milers will be an improvement come marathon day. Sorry, no race day details! I know, you must be in suspense! Race day will be in a separate post!
Sunday was also month end.
Month End Summary:
Miles: 164 (my highest month ever! I have had a few 150's, but never 160! I'm pretty sure this has felt better as well!
YTD: 416 mi100+ mi month: 48 straight monthsRun Streak 1,164 straight daysStrava Climb Challenge: 2000+ meters of hills for the month (6500+ft ascent)

Flying Pig Marathon Training - Week 14 - Weekly Running Update: March 24, 2019

Hi Everyone!

Hope everyone is doing well. Any recent races or ones coming up? Which ones?

Question: when on vacation, do you incorporate running/working out into your schedule, or take a time off from that as well?

My Week in Training:

Monday: 6 miles. On vaca in Florida for a few days (visiting family, baseball, trying to enjoy weather), have plans at 11 this morning. (Phillies baseball game!). Up around my normal time. Coffee, crunches, planks, then over to the gym. A few more machines to take advantage of this week! Woohoo! Then out to explore and do my run. About .75 mi from where I was staying to to A1A to run along the beach. Took a left onto A1A. Passed a beach viewing point, yacht clubs, country clubs, condo's, etc. Fishing piers. Sidewalk seemed to end there. turned around, checked out some of the inlet neighborhoods on the way back, very nice. Just one hill (draw bridge). Temp/humidity may take some getting used to.
Full Pics
Tuesday: 3.11 miles. Heavy wind and rain overnight. Even heard the wind move balcony chairs! Rain wasn't the relaxing kind that helps you sleep in. Up early. Coffee, crunches, planks, hydrate, then over to the gym. Head out at 6:50. Definitely got looks from the lobby desk as I was heading out. lol.. Did the part of the same route as yesterday. Windy most of the way, rain picked up the last half mi or so. Wind and rain was refreshing. Just too bad that it canceled one of the baseball games I was scheduled to go to. :(
Full Pics
Wednesday: 4 miles. Up by 5:15. Coffee, crunches, planks, hydrate, then over to the gym. Decided to really take advantage of the gym and went all in. May have paid for this on Thu. Been feeling the extra work at the gym, but really felt it on Thu. Sore all over! Head out for my run, went to the opposite side of A1A today. Passed another yacht club. Some more nice houses, but eventually more "normal" atmosphere.
Full Pics
Thursday: 1 mile. Back home. Not sure if it was the busy vaca, or the jet lag, but was really tired this morning. Slept 9:30-7:30, and was still groggy. Achy, did not work out this morning. Got a foam roll in, back felt slightly better after rolling. Raining, still lacking motivation, but was refreshing once I did. Update: after doing light chores and being a couch potato watching March Madness, felt better, did a light weight workout.
Friday: 5 miles. Still trying to catch up on sleep. 9-7. Coffee, work out, hydrate, and out the door around 9:15. Day off from work, was going to go to my trail, but decided to stay local to do hills. Haven't had too many hills in a week. Was not expecting it to go well. Pacing: goal was 8:20-8:30. Went better than expected. 8:20 after the worst of the hills and maintained there. Light rain throughout with wind gusts at the end made it interesting, definitely helped wake me up.
Saturday: 8 miles. Friday, was up a few min later than the past few days, almost 10 pm! So late, I know! "only" scheduled for 8 miles today, taking my time getting over to the trail. Coffee, foam roll, over to the trail around 8. My trail Pennypack Creek. Park in the middle. Welsh and Terwood Rd. Either side is and forth 5.25 mi to the mid point. Last time I was at the trail, spent more time on the Rockledge Park side. Decided to stay on the more wooded side, Byberry Rd side. Cold, breezy, and tired. Through the motions. Pacing 8:25-8:30. Once I got to Byberry Rd, left the trail to do a couple laps around a business district (shh..no trespassing sign). 1 regular lap, then the 2nd included zig zagging.  Returned to the trail with 2.5 to go. Slight decline/flat back to the parking lot, thoughts of negative splits, but pretty much just maintained.
Full Pics
Sunday: 1 mile. "Rest day" one for the streak. Up by 7, but procrastinating a bit. Sunny out, a bit chilly, but temps going up. Planning on taking advantage of the nice weather after my run. Coffee, read the news (play on internet) and out the door around 9. Been feeling it this week, planned on working on cadences, but didn't want to over exert. Started out around 7:38 pace, but let it fade and maintain around 7:50, could have let it fade a bit more. After my run, started spring chores. 2+ hours of yard work, raking/de-thatching/fertilize and clean up debris. Only did the front yard, plenty more to do the next nice weekend. Plan to take it easy remainder of the day (watch March Madness), tomorrow is the first time using an alarm clock in over a week!

This was week 14 marathon training, using the below plan.

Flying Pig Marathon Training - Week 13 - Weekly Running Update: March 17, 2019

Hi Everyone!

Hope you are doing well. How are you adjusting to Daylight Savings Time? Rough mornings, adjusting? or taking advantage of extra daylight at night? I am trying stay a morning person, at least for now. This is how it went..

My Week in Training: 

Monday: 7 miles before work. Sunday was daylight savings day and rest day. I rested plenty. But going to bed, tossed and turned, took longer than preferred. Mixed in with waking up at 1 for a bit. That 5 am alarm was a bit rough. Coffee, work out went fine. Hydrate and foam roll. Head out by 6. Was not as tired/groggy as I expected. Pacing: goal 8:30. Settled in the 8:20's before/8:25 after the hills. TBH, today went much better than expected for the dreaded time change. Oh, and I'm back to running in the dark! lol.. begin to see daylight around 6:45..
Tuesday: 3.11 miles before work. Slightly better night's sleep, but still sleeping until my alarm. Coffee, work out, hydrate, foam roll, and out the door by 6. Feeling pretty decent, brisk air felt nice, wanted to work on cadences to get the blood flowing a bit more. Didn't expect to maintain the entire way, but.. 7:40 before/7:50 after the worst hill. 7:45 overall. A couple more decent hills around 2.25 maintained through. Definitely felt better and more amped up than expected. 
Wednesday: 4 miles before work. I've been trying to make a point to get a good night's rest, that and DST still affecting me, should have been in bed early. Did not happen. Went to bed at a decent time, but couldn't shut my mind off. Tossed and turned. Slept for a few hours, but woke up at 4 to use the rest room. That was it, couldn't sleep anymore, personal stuff still on my mind keeping me up. Coffee. Work out. Took my time getting ready. Out the door by 6. Goal was to take it easy, pace around 8:20. Felt decent. 8:15/8:20 before/after hills. Comfortable, maintained at 8:20 throughout. Goal is to definitely get some rest tonight. Wish me luck!
Thursday: 1 mile before work. A better night's rest, finally! In bed by 9 and asleep right away. Up a few min before my alarm. Still a bit groggy at 5 am, but getting better. Coffee, work out, foam roll, and out the door by 6:10. Pace: goal 7:30-7:45. Worked on cadences, first few alerts were around 7:15. Maintained to avg 7:22. Felt pretty decent without over exerting too much.
Friday: 4 miles before work. Decent night's rest. In bed by 9:30 and asleep right away, awake around 4, up and moving around 4:30. Coffee, work out, hydrate, foam roll, and out the door by 6. 50 degrees with a chance of light rain?! Still went with long sleeves. Didn't bother with the hat/gloves. Pacing: Goal was to take it easy and settle in around 8:20. Felt better than expected, 8:10/8:15 before/after the worst hill. Was comfortable. Did get pretty warm, probably could of gone with short sleeves!
Saturday: 20 miles (scheduled for 18? (I may be skipping a 20, replaced it with 2-20's! lol..) I've had this date circled for a while now. I have plans today. Calculated that I would have time to do my long run, but have to get there a few min early, start on time, hopefully no unexpected delays (you know, stomach issues) and no dilly dallying after. Will have to keep on moving after my run to get ready for my plans after. We'll see how that goes... 
In bed by 9:30, up before my alarm. Coffee, light breakfast, foam roll. At my trail a few minutes before daylight. There was already a run group there starting out, a few had head lamps! 
My trail Pennypack Creek. Park in the middle, Welsh and Terwood Rd. Did the side towards Rockledge Park first (more gradual incline side). and back. Fueling every 5 mi, hydrating every 5.25 mi (each time passing my car). Over towards the more wooded side to Byberry Rd and back to the more gradual incline side and back. 16 mi 3rd time passing my car, street light and heavy traffic toward Byberry Rd skipped waiting for the light and turned around to the gradual incline side again (3rd time) for 2 mi and back.
Starting out, still a bit dark, but I know there will be light any min, enough blue light to go into the woods. lol. While it was still dark, saw a couple deer! I couldn't tell at first, hoping it was, but I could tell as i got closer! Warm yesterday, but rain broke the temps. Temp was a bit cool to start. Hat and gloves on/off through most of the run. Pacing: goal was to pace 9:00-9:09 (4 hr marathon pace). Paced 8:55 through 16. 16-18 faded to 9. 18-20 faded to 9:06. Still feeling the slow down at 16 and some tightness at 18. Hopefully still making some progress.. 
Full Pics
Sunday: 1 mile. Rest Day, one for the streak. Run Streak Day 1,149. Up around 6:15, probably could have slept another hr if I wanted to. Nah, I'm up! Coffee, read the news (play on internet). Hydrate and stretch. Out around 7:30. Only 1 turn to get to the beach! 1 mi day, took it easy. Turned around when I got there, finished just before coming back across the causeway bridge. Will be along the beach later this week. ;) 
Today's background pic may look slightly different. In Florida for a few days. Visiting family, enjoying weather, and a couple Phillies spring training games. Will be busy today, hope to rest somewhat.

Flying Pig Marathon Training - Week 12 - Weekly Running Update: March 10, 2019

Hi Everyone!

Hope you are doing well. How's your winter training going? Any weather issues? Ready for spring races? Which ones? 


My Week in Training: 

Monday: 6 miles before work. Sunday, there was a forecast of 6 inches of snow. 40 degrees most of the day, thought there would be a chance it would all be rain. Rain eventually turned into heavy wet snow. Didn't get 6 inches, but enough to be an inconvenience. Went to bed early. Woke up in the middle of the night, saw we got a decent amount of snow. Had issues sleeping after that, maybe anxiety. Up around 4. Coffee, worked out, hydrate, foam roll and out the door by 5:30. The plows just started my street a few min before me. We passed each other the entire way! First 3 miles went well, zig zagging my streets. Made the mistake of leaving my neighborhood for the loop around. First couple blocks were businesses that were plowed, but after that, sidewalks that haven't been touched yet, went into the street a few times, but traffic wouldn't permit that. My least fav hill half, mi up through the snow. I try not to cuss at it as I pass a church/school. Key word try. Pacing 8:30 before the hill, 8:40 after, feeling sat long run/hills/snow, I remained there. Shoveling post run before work, more fun. 

Tuesday 3.11 miles before work. Decent night's rest. Up a few min before my alarm. Coffee, work out, hydrate, foam roll. Out the door by 6. 6 am and there is daylight, yay! Going to miss the early sunrise when DST changes this weekend, but am looking forward to more daylight after work. It was a bit chilly this morning, 15 with a feel of 19, but layered properly and no wind, no issue at all. Roads treated well yesterday. No yaktrax needed. There was some black ice to keep an eye out for though. Just after mile 1, wraps around a defunct business about .2 of solid/crunchy snow before the hill. Pacing 8:10-8:20 after the hill, back down. In mile 2 passed three houses in a row on a busy rd that didn't do any shoveling. Shame on them! (I may have cussed as I ran by)
Wednesday: 4 miles before work. Could of used more sleep. Went to bed early, woke up at 3 for a while and fell back to sleep. Rough to start. Coffee, work out, hydrate, foam roll. Double checked weather, bit chilly! Couldn't find my 2nd pair of gloves! Wasted a few min looking. Out the door around 6:10. Cold, but bearable. Through the motions. 8:26 after the worst hill, able to bring it back to 8:20. I never used my backup gloves, they just came along for the ride. 
Thursday: 1 mile before work. Could of used a little more sleep, but up a few min before my alarm. Coffee, work out (slowly), hydrate, foam roll, and out the door by 6:15. Goal was to take it easy, I did. 1 mile loop goes along a busy rd, at least 2 houses haven't shoveled since Sunday snowfall, hard snow/ice. May have cussed at their house as I passed by. Pace was 7:55 to 8:05. Thought about pushing it to maintain at least an 8, but didn't bother. 
Friday: 5 miles before work. Decent night's sleep. Went to bed early after running errands after work. Up a few minutes before my alarm. Coffee, work out, hydrate, foam roll, and out the door by 6. Pacing slightly better than expected. A little tired, not too limber, was expecting closer to 8:30. 8:10 before, 8:20 after the hills. Bringing it back to 8:15 remainder of the way. Sometimes you feel better during the actual run than what you think beforehand.
Saturday: 10 miles. Decent night' sleep. Didn't go to bed as early as I usually do on a Fri night, but still woke up early. Coffee, foam roll , hydrate. Ahead of schedule, took my time getting over to the trail by 7. My neighborhood still has a coating of ice covered snow, expecting the trail to be worse, packed my yaktrax. My trail Pennypack Creek. Park in the middle, Welsh and Terwood Rd. Did the slightly harder side to Rockledge Park first to mix it up. Gradual incline most of the way and decline back. A couple bridges still had some ice, rest of this side of the trail was clear of snow/ice! Fueled at 5 mi, hydrate as I pass my car at 5.25. Over to the more wooded side towards Byberry Rd and back. The more wooded side had a few patches of ice to be aware of, but not bad. Pacing: avg was around 8:30 most of the way through 7. 8:32 a couple times, but regrouped. After the turnaround from Byberry Rd, worked on cadences a bit more, splits on the way back. My 10th mi was my fastest. Felt great!    
Full Pics
Sunday: Rest day, one for the streak. Run Streak day 1,142. Tired, slow to get up. With the time change was up at 7. Coffee, took my time getting ready reading the news/playing on the internet. Hydrate, foam roll, and out the door around 8:30. Pouring rain overnight supposed to taper off, still pretty steady. Worked on breathing trying to psych myself to get off my front porch. Worked on cadences, a bit chilly, but the rain was invigorating! Plan to take it easy remainder of the day. Hope the rain washes away the rest of the snow!
