CIM 2016: Training Recap & Looking Ahead

OK, last post about CIM and then I’m moving on. I wanted to write a quick run-down of my training – basic numbers, what was good, and what was bad. Then, I’ll write a quick blurb about what’s ahead. First,

CIM Week 11.5 of 12: Race Preview

Let’s face it: it’s super awkward to post workouts from the last week of marathon training after the race, so I thought I’d lump the beginning of Week 12 with a little race preview, to get my pre-CIM rambling on.

CIM Training Week 11 of 12: Almost Game Time

Less than a week to go until CIM!! It seems so surreal. I’ll draft a race preview sometime later this week, but in the meantime, here are some random thoughts: My right ankle has been bugging me since the Berkeley

CIM Training Week 10 of 12: Peak Week?

“Peak Week 1” LOLZ. I don’t know if I’m peaking, or just feel “peak-ed”. With Thanksgiving upon us, I can’t help but get in the mindset of feeling grateful for a lot of things in my life. In terms of

CIM Training Week 9 of 12: Peak Weeks, Here I Come!

My training plan from Greg McMillan’s You (Only Faster) is pretty traditional for the most part, but there are a few quirky things. For example, McMillan thinks the word “taper” is bad, because it denotes relaxation. Instead he prefers to

CIM Training Week 6 of 12 + Some New Things I Like

Six weeks down, six more weeks to go! WOOT! Monday: Rest. Tuesday: 13 x (1 min on/1 min off). Nothing like fartleks to wake up dead legs. ~5.5 miles (this is when my Garmin’s GPS was still busted, so I’m

CIM Training Week 5 of 12: Highs & Lows

If CIM Training Week 4 was all rainbows and unicorns, then Week 5 was a whole load of the opposite. Here’s what went down: Monday: Rest. Tuesday: 90 minutes easy. OOF. This one was a slog, partially due to beat-up

CIM Week 3 of 12 & Pacing the Tiburon Half Marathon

Howdy! The nice thing about a 12-week training cycle is that I can say that I’m already a quarter done at the end of Week 3. Hooray! Monday: Rest. Tuesday: Long midweek run (80-90 minutes). This was a comedy of

CIM Training Week 2 (of 12)

Monday: Rest. Tuesday: Leg speed (aka strides) – 10 x 25 sec on/1 min off. Nice little workout to get the legs to turnover more efficiently. 5.9 miles @ 10:10/mile Wednesday: 60 minutes easy. I just couldn’t get my act
