10 x 200 uphill... felt good.
Think it'd be possible for me to begin training for the NY marathon next year? I'm a relatively in shape guy 5'10 170 pounds 12ish% bf, but I have difficulty with long distance running. I work out quite consistently (3-4 times a week alternating between weights and cardio - which is usually eliptical).
I participated in 1 race (10k) a couple years ago and it took me 59 minutes (lots of elderly women surpassed me )
Think it's feasible if I begin training now? Much of the running would have to be indoors and on a treadmill as it is winter here.
If you are willing to follow through with the training a marathon is no doubt possible. As was mentioned you really just need to commit to the idea that you are going to spend some serious time in your running shoes. When I trained for my first race I just used the middle of the road marathon plan http://www.nycmarathon.org/training/...g_schedule.htm at that link.
10k race tmro - hopefully I will run sub 6's

Need new running shoes... I want to try Asics or Saucony tho I've only been runing in Nike.
4 miles. Ran like a stuffed turkey. (Wonder why???) Good Lord, it's cold outside. Windchill of 20 degrees. Ice patches on the road here and there. Gotta find where I put those Smart Wool leg tights.
I threw out my back Monday morning"”badly enough to end up in the ER. Today's my first day back since, and man did I feel it. Amazing how out-of-whack one can feel after just a few days without cardio.

wait - what? not a fast guy??? PLZ. Taking a few days off right now: the bridge-fixing weekend took more out of me than I reckoned, and then Tgiving wasn't at all restful, and I have no sleep-in days this weekend, sooo...maybe Sunday but I think I'll just wait until I get the old bounce in my legs again.
11.5 on a beautiful san diego evening. I have pretty much switched full time to my Asics Speedstars.
9 miles on Thanksgiving day on the Heritage Trail in IA.
Will run 10 this morning and then drive back to Chicago.
