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.

My reactions exactly. Happy Birthday to my boy Andrew who turns 11 today.  There he is at 3 joining me at the finish of my first marathon.  I was about 50 yards from the finish line, spotted him in the crowd and wave and out he shoots to join me to the finish line. Such an awesome memory I will never forget. This is great! The Cove. Barefoot running and gravel paths!? Call it a nice massage on the feet. I never tried or thought about deadlifts when younger. Now at the ripe age of 46 I discovered how awesome they are.  With 3 weeks in I hit 190lbs for 5 reps on my last set. Thanks to my son for the recording.
