Signed up for the Hartford, CT Marathon – Oct 13th

After running the 50K in May I just couldn’t resist to run the Hartford marathon this year, it’s been a marathon I wanted to do, and since my plan is to run a marathon a year I decided to go for it.

Now the training, well I am in my first week but it’s not necessarily that marathon training you read in books or on the marathon forums, matter of fact is pretty relaxed, almost to relaxed.   Since I said goodbye to the garmin, I won’t be using it during training or in the marathon.  So what’s my plan, the same formula I have been using for a long time which is run 4 days a week.  The 3 runs during the week I will keep anywhere between 40-60 minutes (of course if I have time to run long during the week, I will) then my long run on the weekends.  Since I won’t be tracking miles I will be going by time instead.   I plan on getting in three 3 hours runs between now and the marathon, the first one will be in four weeks.

First snow of the season. My son and I at the finish of the 5 mile Turkey Trot Rusty as a bag of nails, but it’s a good outlet. 5 mile Turkey Trot tradition. 20+ years running this race with my sister. My son made his debut today, fantastic job! Deadlifts. This was my last set of 225lbs, a new PR.
135 x 10 warm up
185 x 6
195 x 7
205 x 6
225 x 5

Had my son Andrew @parkor_boy23 filming and working out with me as well. Finally Optimal Nutrition comes out with a plant based protein.  Most protein powder has a lot of garbage in it, artificial flavors, gluten, dextrin, soy etc. which I try to avoid. I’m not a Vegan/Vegetarian but like a clean supplement. The taste is spot on. Not grainy or “earthy” tasting.  Very happy with this.
#optimumnutrition First cold barefoot run of the season. 25F and the sun was shining, felt good.
#barefootrunning 5am Workout.
I don’t have heat In my garage it was a crisp 32 degrees, but don’t mind.  Some benefits of having a home gym is no travel time, no people, and you can wear your comfies.
This was my last set of benching at 170lbs Fall fun.
