The most knowledgeable 46 minute run I have had.

Saturday, March 10, 2012

So last Sunday I ran the Miami Beach 13.1. It was my first half. I met up with (MBSHAZZER), Sharon before the race. She is a really sweet person and so glad that I know her. It is funny how we both ran the same race, but had two different perspectives about it. So on to my recovery week.

I was sore in my quads from doing 4 bridges in the race so I wanted to take it easy with my runs this week. I rested on Monday and ran a 3 miler on Tueday, my usual. I took different route and it was a relaxed 3 miler...I did not have to cross one street. I was pressed for time on Wednesday so I ran a 2 miler, and also a 2 miler on Thursday. I got in one day of strength training instead of 3 because my quads were a little sore and I did not want to push it and really hurt myself.

This morning I got up had a small bite to eat and then headed over to meet up with the group for the long run. The meet up time changed from 6 to 6:30. I pull into the parking lot and I do not see any cars or people gathering for their warm up....what to do, what to do. I get out of my car and get ready to run. As I am doing my warmup, one person walks up and introduces himself and we do a brief run down of our running accomplishments and upcoming races. He is one of the fast runners I have mentioned in previous blogs. Julio is 60 and has run a few marathons, but thinks halfs are fun runs. We start running and I immediately inform Julio that I am have only been running for one year so I am not a fast paced runner. He offered to run at my pace....how sweet. About half a mile into the run, Julio gives me a little suggestion. I should change my elephant stomp (my words, not his) to a cat walk. How often do you hear a cat entering a room....I put bells on mine so I could and even then they would walk with precise movements to avoid the bell from ringing. I had to change my running form and REALLY concentrate on my foot falls. Next we worked on my upper body form. I do okay with that so he had to remind me a few times (mainly when I was starting to get tired) to stay loose. Great information. The first 3 miles were at least a minute faster than what I am use to pacing so we slowed it down a bit. It was a struggle to keep up with him, but I was loving every minute of it. Oh yeah, Julio had already gotten in 5 miles before he ran with me. I called it quits when I got back to where I parked my car. I ran 4.75 miles. Yeah, I know I could have run some more to make it an even 5. We parted ways and Julio ran on for another mile or so. I really appreciate the advice he gave me and I will put it to use on my future runs. And it was so sweet. when we were talking about our ages, he thought I was in my early 30's. Yep, 40 is the new 30. Lol!!!

Daylight Savings Time starts tomorrow...so remember to change your clocks tonight.

Have a great weekend.

    Daphne, it sounds like you are recovering well from the half! Glad to hear it! And I'm so glad that you got some good advice from a veteran! Also, I agree with Julio - I think you look about 10 years younger than you are! :D

    I'm totally jealous - I want a running coach LOL!! Good job!! And TRUE-NESS, you are RIGHT to claim the 'no injury' idea!! I ran for over 20 years with no serious injuries (i.e. ones that kept me from running.) It was only after I STOPPED running for a year due to a non-running related illness (at age 50) that some arthritis in my knees prevented me from running for a long while (because I COULD do distance walking and was afraid of irritating my knees enough that I couldn't do that.) After 4 years of really pushing myself with walking, though, I was able to start back running this year!! I'm going to do my first half marathon in over 12 years on April 29th and am over the moon about it!

    Great advice! I just joined the Granite State Race Team and hoping that I will meet up with other "experienced" runners as well that can teach me a few things. I am sure I make my runs much harder than they need to be!!

Great job on all you hard work!! You are certainly an inspiration!

I will have only been running a year this April.

    It's always nice to learn something new that will help during training. I've been asking folks all kinds of questions as I begin to train to run my first 5K. Most folks say I will learn what works best for ME as I go. One person even told me that injury was inevitable. Wow! What great news, huh? lol Well, I'm not claiming that. I'm just going to pray and try to be careful and not overdo any aspect of training or working out. I hope I can be where you are some day. You are my inspiration!

    GREAT ADVICE!!! How did you change your footfall form though? Were you a midfoot striker and then changed to a forefoot, or is it just a conscious change in how you land? Is your stride length the same, your cadence? So curious! :-)

Race day.....I am a half marathoner!!!!!

Sunday, March 04, 2012

My decision to run a half marathon started from a dream over a year ago. After finishing my first 5k (The 2010 Turkey Trot) my girlfriend tried to talk me into running the 2011 ING half. After we came off our runner's high, we quickly realized that we were in no shape or form ready to run an additional 9 miles in 2 months. So we decided to aim for the 2012 ING half. I did not think I would be ready for the ING in January so I aimed for the Miami Beach 13.1 knowing I would have plenty of time to prepare for my run. Now fast forward to March 2012.

I woke up at 4:30 to give myself enough time to wake up, get dressed, grab a small bite to eat and head out the door in case I got lost. Another sparker, MBSHAZZER, arranged a meet up time before the race. I went down to South Beach on Saturday to pick up my race packet and also to get a feel for the area just in case streets were being closed off in preperation for the race. I also took a couple of photos around South Beach and one of the photos was of the Caryle Hotel, where I met MBSHAZZER at 5:45. The race started at 6:13 so we had plenty of time to chat and do a quick warm up. Considering this was my first half, I was not nervous at all. I guess hopping on here and reading about everyone else's first half marathons has prepared me for what to expect. I wish MBSHAZZER good luck and then I make a quick stop at the port o potty. She disappears somewhere near the front because she is a fast paced runner and I walk to the back to look for 2 hour + pacers. I stopped near the 2:30 pacer sign and squeezed in when the crowd started to move.

It was not too crowded. There were a little over 3,000 for the half running. It is still dark when we cross the start line. I decided to leave my music at home and take in the scenery and people for my first run.....a decision I somewhat regret. I was doing okay until I came across one runner who dragged one shoe while the other foot did not make noise. Well actually it was more like thomp, draggggg, thomp, draggggg. This was throwing off my pace because he was trying to keep up with me.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that it started off on the warm side. I think is was 72 degrees at gun time and when the sun came out it worked into the high 70's real fast. And then came the bridges.....4 in total. I did okay pacing myself, but the bridges took away some of my energy. I did not take any water until mile marker 5. From that point I drank at every mile looking ahead for the next water station in the horizon. Even though I did not bring my music, there was plenty of entertainment along the way. At one mile there was a dj blasting music out of 6 foot speakers and a little further down the road there were high school marching bands playing. And one music destination had a live band. So it was never a dull moment.

Miles 1 through 5 were great. Miles 5 through 9, I struggled to keep a pace and the heat was getting to me so I walked a lot during those miles. Also the effect of the bridges were taking their toll on my run. At any given time, there were at least 10 or so people walking around me and this is probably why I walked more; I could not find anyone to shadow. No one passed out or needed any medical assistance, thank goodness. So around mile 9.5, after I recovered from the last bridge and I got tired of hearing the man thomp and drag trying to keep up with me, I picked up my pace and hoped I was not making a mistake doing so. The rest of the course was flat so it was easy to maintain an even pace.

I finished the race in 2:28.06. I was blown away by the winners times. The male winner finished in 1:03 minutes (a 4+ minute/mile pace) and the female winner finished in 1:17 minutes; Wow. I can barely run a 10k in that time frame. I walked around the beach after the race and took a couple of photos. As soon as I find my cable I will upload them. I noticed there was a booth for engraving. You could get your name and time engraved on your medal for $20....yep, I did it. One time I will always remember. So I am officially a half marathoner!!!!!! I have to run this race again next year to qualify for the Big 3 bling (Fort Lauderdale 13.1, in November, the ING half in January, and the Miami Beach 13.1 again). I saw a lot of Big 3 bling today and said to myself that I will have mine next year.

I can totally relate to that noise throwing you off, too.... towards the end, I was running near this guy who was just GROAAAAANING as he was running! Very distracting!

Weeks 18 & 19 half marathon training: squish, squish, squish

Sunday, March 04, 2012

I am behind two weeks for my half marathon training blogs. I have had a lot on my mind lately and when I get stressed, I get quiet. I ran my race today and I will blog about it right after this post. Plus I am looking for my cable that I need to connect my phone to the computer. I want to add photos to my race blog.

Week 18 started off a little stressful. Monday I go to pick up my son from school and.....he was in the principal's office. He is part of what I call the four musketeers (who are always getting into trouble). They have been running in the cafeteria and on any given school day for the past month one or all of them end up in the principal's office during lunch. Finally the school came up with a plan; each of the four musketeers sit on the end of other class's tables, except for one boy who is autistic and would not understand why he is not sitting with his class. And so far this has been working out well.

I did my usual runs on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday runs as planned. I ran with the running group two Saturdays ago. Yeah, I was so excited to run with them that I forgot my Garmin. I ran blind and when I got home, I used map run? to figure out the mileage and pace. I really missed my Garmin that day.

Week 19 was an okay week. I did a little experimenting this week. On Tuesday, I ran with music and on my Wednesday and Thursday runs I left my Nano at home. I did not miss the music as much as I thought I would. I got a little bummed on Friday. My husband had to go to Indiana for work and the weather was bad so he got stuck there on Friday. I do my long runs on Saturday so it meant I had to miss running with the group and stay home and take of the kids. I headed out the door on Sunday morning around 7. Around mile 2 I thought I felt a drop of rain and I was hoping I was wrong. And then around mile 5, it started to rain. Squish, squish, squish for 6 miles. I ran an 11 miler. I noticed that more people run their long runs on Saturday, here in Doral. Sunday runs are reaallly boring because I rarely see a car or person for a while. Well I am going to see if I can find the cable I need to use for the computer...if not then I will blog without the photos.

Week 17 half marathon training: 6:38 am....oh no

Sunday, February 12, 2012

First I will give a quick recap about my week and then my long run. I ran my usual two 3 milers and a 5 miler. I have different routes for all my runs. On my Wednesday route, I saw one of the mom's from my daughter's school while I was running my 5 miler. I was having a little fun around that time using up a little too much energy dancing (and running) to one of the songs. This was a pace run so I had to force myself not to start off too fast. Thursday I saw the guy who picks up the trash in my community, outside my community, on the streets. He gave a toot to say hello. It feels good to see that others are noticing me out and about in the community.

So on to my long run. My alarm was supposed to go off at 5:10 so I could wake up and have a small bite to eat before I head out for my run. I looked at my phone and the time read 6:38 am........noooooooooo. The group meets at 6 am. Well I had to run alone again. Once I hopped out of bed and made my half peanut butter & jelly sandwich and wolfed down a banana, my attention turned towards my gear. My Garmin and Nano both needed charging so while I wait for my food to settle, I charged "my running buddies" and got dressed. With time to kill, I hopped on my Kindle to wait out the remaining time. By now the sun was up and I should have been almost halfway through my run. Oh well no use overthinking should of's and could of's....make it happen. I head out the door and run towards the front gate and debate which way do I go. In a few weeks my neighborhood is going to get a little congested because of the huge golf tournament that comes every year that happens in the next community over from me. So I decided to take advantage of the peaceful streets and run in that direction.

There is a huge shopping plaza that runs along my community. It stretches four blocks long and houses everything from LA Fitness, Publix (supermarket), an urgent care center, cell phone store and a host of restaurants and local mom and pop stores. I am about half a mile into my run when I run past LA Fitness and notice a palm leaf that fell from a tree. This is a 3 lane street and one and a half lanes were blocked by this palm leaf (the leaf was at least 8 foot long and the hull was at least 6 feet) so I stopped the Garmin and pulled it up on the grass past the sidewalk. With a two hand backwards pull I was able to move it out of the road....... and then my left foot stepped in a hole. I did not get hurt because grass was around the edges of the hole, but I was a little shaken up. With my good deed done, I restart the Garmin and continue on my run. I was not quite sure if I was going to run 10, 11, or 12 miles. I was going to leave that up to mile 9 and how I felt; I decided to run 11. It was a good run that I would have enjoyed more running with other people.

Well I hope I do not oversleep next week's long run.

Week 16 half marathon training: juggling my training schedule

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

The title just about says it all. My husband had to travel out of town last weekend to go help out his airport for the Superbowl. I run during the week while the kids are in school and on the weekends for my long run, my husband watches them. Well with him leaving on Thursday to go to Indiana that meant my long run would have to be moved to Friday......I wish.

Monday afternoon, after my son finished his homework the only thing left to do was read a book and record it in the reading log. My son said, "Look mom we don't have to do a book report on Friday". Uh oh. Translation.....teacher workshop day on Friday so there is no school. I am thinking, no biggie. I had already planned to run on Monday so I could rest on Thursday and do a long run on Friday. On to Plan B.....run Monday and Tuesday, rest on Wednesday and long run on Thursday. I got to run a 3 miler, 5 miler and my long run was 9.5 miles. My running group meets at my daughter's school for long runs on Saturday. I was going to be short on time so instead of going home to run I parked at my daughter's school and brought an extra change of clothes. I was in such a rush to start running I left my music in the car.....oh well. It actually turned out to be a good run. I focused on my pace. I did not have anything else to think about so I listened to my footfalls and breathing. This is probably what I do when I run with my partner. I was short about 4 miles this week compared to last week. What I lost in miles I made up doing the bootcamp dvd. I finally finished it so I need to write a review about it. Juggling picking up the kids at two different schools, bringing home a friend's son and helping him with his homework, housework (inside and out), and my half training has me crawling to the bed at night. I think tomorrow is a new day...and then I do it all over again.

Three more weeks until my half. I am so excited. Once I rest up a bit I am going to hit the pavement again and train for a trail half. I did a 10k trail last year (profile pic). It was a lot of fun. I even bought trail shoes for the race...now I need to put some more mileage on them. Plus I need a new profile pic. Lol!!!!

    Nice job with the juggling. I had to do that a lot this fall.... if you can juggle your schedule to make your long runs work, you are 90% of the way there!

    Fantastic. At least you got some miles under your belt. I have a 5K this weekend and am increasing to a 5 miler in March. AHHH nervous.

    Being a mom and a runner means having to adapt at a moment's notice and you did it! Good luck with your half, Daphne! You must be so excited!

    It's amazing what we have to go through at times. But, you did it. You were able to fit in your long run even though you had to switch things around. Wow, 3 more weeks!! Excited??
