I Am a Runner

Sunday, November 25, 2012

Still reveling in the accomplishment of my first half marathon. Believe it or not, but the pace group I trained with usually finish a half in 2:52-3 hours. So despite the fact that Barb could have gone faster, I'm getting a lot of congratulations on the 2:37:36 time from my Galloway group members! I see I was 30th out of 90 in my age group. I was something like number 1918 out of a total of 3150 runners. Not bad for a first effort.

During the race I had no pain, but my left glute and hamstring were telling me that they were working hard. I thought they might really hurt after the race, but they didn't. Right after the race my calf muscles cramped hard several times. I drank a lot on the run, so I don't think it was dehydration causing those cramps. I figured they were just telling me I went as fast as I should have.

The day after the race, I had soreness in my quads whenever I moved. The next day I only felt it if I squatted. Three days out I was just feeling a little tired, but I also was having some trouble sleeping so that might have been the reason. Five days after the race I woke with a burning desire to run. Thought I should take it easy, but I just loved running on the beach. I even got lots of people giving me positive comments. I was wearing my St Pete Women's Half Marathon tee shirt! I ran with only a few walk breaks for over an hour. It just felt so good.

I am a runner. I am a half marathoner!!

    Cramps are often a sign of the lose of salts/minerals as a result of dehydration - were you drinking water, or electrolyte? You might like to increase your electrolytes on your next big run - since that replaces the salts and minerals as well as the water.

Great result - you are a real inspiration. So strong!

    Indeed you are! Your experience with the quads day after matches my own first HM outing. This time, nada for me... it was a good pace, well run interval plan. And such a joy to be there for your first!

I expect to have that knee-jerk reaction to the opening of registration for the Lincoln half, come December 1st... that's what happened last year. After all, it's kind of my "home race". If you *do* decide to come, I have a guest room waiting for you, and can provide local transport. You won't have to rent car to road trip to see your mom until the day after the race. Hee-hee! Tempted yet?

On the other hand, weather for the Lincoln half can be a little chancy... I've had friends end up running it in pouring rain, and I've run it twice, once in COLD once in HOT. So... when you know what you're doing let me know. I have decided my "anchor" event for 2013 is going to be the Wisconsin Dells Olympic distance triathlon (Rev3) in August. Everything else will just have to fit around that one.

Oh, yeah... I can tell... we are both STILL high, a week later. And my "it just felt so good" run came this morning! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

After the Half Marathon

Saturday, November 24, 2012

Again, thanks to Barb (ONEKIDSMOM), Monty (MIRAGE727), and Darren (DSSECRETS) for a great and fun half marathon. Couldn't have done it without you -- at least not as fast and not as fun!

Then it was to the beach for a week of family fun:

Gwen runs at sunset on the beach.


Natalie runs at sunset on the beach.

I worked toward the half marathon for 5.5 months. Now what?

I'm thinking I'll stay with the Galloway group. I'll run a "miracle mile" as soon as I can and try to move up to a faster group. I'd like to train at run 2 minutes/walk 1 minute and do my next half at that pace; the one I just finished I did at 1 min run/1 min walk. I believe I can run faster safely and still enjoy it.

I'm also thinking about getting a personal trainer. My first choice would be a trainer who is a certified running coach with experience in coaching 60 year old woman and extensive knowledge and experience with strength training. I've been slacking a bit on and off on the strength training and want to pick that up. I particularly want to strengthen my lower back and core.

In 2013 I'm planning to do more local races: 5K, 10K, HM or other. I might consider doing the St Pete Women's Half again especially if Barb, Monty, and Darren are running. I'm planning to observe a triathlon and consider whether I want to train for one.

In 2014 I'm planning to do a Disney half marathon. Will have to decide which one to do. There is the Disney World Marathon Weekend, January 9-12, 2014 or the Disney's Princess Half Marathon Weekend Feb 21-23, 2014. I considered 2013, but family wants to make a big trip out of it thinking Gwen will enjoy it more in a year. Sounds good to me!!

So, I don't have my next race selected but I have the beginning of a plan. And I have a commitment to continue to make running and fitness important parts of my life!

    Looks as though your week at the beach gave you time to consider... I like your plans and commitment to continued fitness. I've been doing some of the same, although I have not blogged about it, yet.

That Olympic tri next August in Wisconsin I've talked about? I looked up training plans on line today, and discovered I'd have to start my sixteen week training plan in mid-April to make the dates work. Which means either skipping the Lincoln Half in May, or overlapping training plans. The overlapping training plans this year gave me a little unease, but it worked out in the end.

While there is a lot of year between now and some of these events, sign ups happen early. Still lots of time to prep once you commit. This Winter I want to focus more on strength, too. Started today with a brief upper body workout. I don't really have to start half marathon training for Lincoln until January.

But I will say I already promised my cousin's daughter that if she trains up for half marathon distance I'll come do the St. Pete's women's half with her next November! Given she had just done her first 5K the week before... it's a distinct possibility.

Too Lazy to Blog!!! But I'm Celebrating!!

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Hey, I'm kind of tired this evening, but feeling good! The half marathon was AWESOME!! Barb was very generous. She could have gone faster, but she waited for me. Love her!! She is in person just like she is on SP!! So I was so very glad she achieved a PR (personal record, beating her previous time by 19 seconds) at 2 hour 37 minutes and 36 seconds with me by her side!!

To see the race, just go appreciate the work and fellowship and support of two amazing SparkFriends, Monty and Darren. They got up at 4:30 AM to come support us and Monty took great pictures! Check out his blog for more about our awesome race!! www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo

Confident Running

Thursday, November 15, 2012

I just finished my last training run before my first HM, the St Pete Women's Half Marathon on Sunday, Nov 18th. Although it wasn't a particularly fast workout nor particularly long one, it did help build confidence. I woke up not feeling quite right. My stomach just felt yucky, even though I didn't overeat yesterday. Most days I would have waited a couple hours, eaten and rested, and see if I didn't feel better before running. But today I decided to see how a run would go even though I wasn't 100%. Who knows how I'll feel Sunday morning.

When I first started my run today I wasn't sure, but then the good running feelings took over (endorphins, I suppose) and the stomach wasn't much of a distraction. I finished up the run just fine and my stomach wasn't better or worse.

Most of the time when I'm ready to run I'm feeling strong and healthy and raring to go. But I realize since I started training in June I have run on too little sleep, after too much food, after too little food, with healing cut on foot, with healing strain in lower back, in extreme heat and when cool, in the dark, and otherwise when I just didn't feel like it. I've run by myself and with groups going various paces. I've run with music and without. I've warn various clothing and three different pairs of shoes with and without arch supports. In other words, things don't have to be the same or perfect for me to run.

So that helps me be confident that no matter what, I'm going to feel like running Sunday..... at least by mile two.

    Sounda like your head is in the game and you are ready to go! I sure hope that stomach problem doesn't go anywhere. Its not fun working out and dealing with tummy troubles on top of everything else.
Here is hoping everything is smooth sailing from here on in. Do be careful of what you eat and build those carbs up! Its so very close now! Wow! The anticipation you must be going through!! The butterflies...

    Hooray! A key part of a healthy lifestyle is that we make healthy choices no matter how we FEEL! Good for you, finding the will regardless of circumstances! You inspire me to keep going! Enjoy the race ... Hope your tummy is all better and you have a great day!

    Bursting with energy, perhaps? Or would be without the stomach distraction? :)
Take that confidence into your HM, you're ready and you're going to NAIL it!! Enjoy the race, I'm looking forward to hearing about it!

    This workout is supposed to be neither fast nor long.
I think you're ready to roll.
