    26.3 miles today finishing the Pikes Peak marathon. A real ass-kicker.

    I did 20 miles this morning. My legs were not feeling it and I was a bit hungover so I was more than happy when I saw my final pace was still down around 9:30/mile.


    I have a couple friends from here who were out there for that. I'd love to do that one in the next few years if I get the chance.

    Just read the course description on their site, and that's nuts. Congratulations! Did the first half really take as long as your typical flatland marathon?

    Yeah, that's pretty much more insane that any other day race I've seen. I like moutain running, but running above the tree line and coming up against oxygen deprivation? Not so much...

    There must be some truth to this. My friend that ran it did just the "up" half and it took him about 3:35 and his normal full marathon is right about 3:25.

    I got in 11 miles yesterday as dehydration kicked in from a hard effort Saturday. Easy week this week before 3 weeks of hard work then taper.

    Anyone have any preference of these three options to hydrate more?
    1. Hydration vest - Would buy one with two bottles up front then a pack for either a bladder of other stuff
    2. 2 hand bottles - I run with 1 25oz bottle now
    3. 1 25 oz bottle, chug more at each stop

    I generally prefer option #3 just because I don't like hydration vests and I wouldn't want both hands full of bottles. And of course, hydrate all day everyday so that you need less when you are actually running.

    Yes. It's tough when you get to 12000 ft and have 3 miles to go. It's a real death march for most people (me included). I could breath reasonably but the leg muscles felt like they had no energy. You get a bit dizzy as well. Plus you have people going up and down on the single track at that level.
    The view for most of the race is worth the trip and training. I'll post a few pics when I get back.
    Another crazy run in manitou springs is the incline run. Look that one up. .8 miles (i think) and 30 minutes is an impressive time.

    The Manitou Incline seems like the perfect challenge for one of my close friends. He loves that kind of stuff.

    9.5 miles this morning including six 1 mile intervals at about 7:30 each.


    I just looked at the video on the site and all I can say is "Holy Crap!" :wow: It turned my stomach just to watch that. 2,020' of incline in just about 4,200' of distance. Crazy. My legs got tired watching it and I feel humbled now by anything I accomplish here in the flatland.

    Took another day off. Sleep deprived another night for whatever reason so I am sort of a zombie today.

    Haha, this is me today as well… but I did about 4 miles yesterday afternoon and it's just been beautiful running weather lately here in LA.

    I got in an extra 4 miles yesterday after work. I don't normally have the chance to run in the afternoon or evening but I think i am going to try to set aside one day a week to do so, regardless of whether I ran in the morning.

    6.3 miles this morning.

    8.6 miles this morning...heavy heat and I was drenched after the run. Didn't sleep great but this run helped my mood.

    Got in 6.94 mils in CP in 57:29, then went to November Project, which in NYC is kind of as easy or hard of a running based workout as you make it.
