Re: Training for Multiple Events over Summer

Thanks for the advice. Sorry it took so to follow up. Didn't get a chance to work on my training plan until today. I did end up removing several of the longer long runs, since they fell on a race day or day after a race day. It's more difficult to use a race as speedwork and move the long run to mid...

Hi, all. Time to pick the brains of the smart &experienced folks here at RM. [Nothing like buttering you up to start :D ] Last few summers, I've trained for several races over the summer, usually finishing with a half marathon or similar in the fall. To do so, I've usually laid a half marathon p...

Several years ago, I twisted my ankle quite badly during a training run. This was ~2 weeks from a planned half marathon. I DNS'd the race: could walk fine but running even a few meters caused sharp pains. Don't remember exactly, but it may have been 3-4 weeks before i resumed running. Even then, it ...

Habs, I can really sympathize with your not getting that finish time you were looking for. OTOH, I am *very* impressed with the time you did get, especially considering the pain you had to fight thru to get it. And ain't it great to have friends like Size5 to help you when you really need it?
