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.

Ran the Fairfield CT half marathon this morning. Came in with a time off 1:50:12.  This  was my 8th consecutive year running this race, and barefoot. My training was super light. Maybe 12-15 miles per week with no speed training, or fancy workouts, all runs were slow. I started lifting weights again, and noticed a big difference with running. The weight training is what pulled me through. The best snack/protein bar out there. Definitely no BS.
