Check out his blog here. More importantly, check out how running changed my life. RunnerDude has lots of great posts on nutrition, training for races, and GREAT contests. I didn’t win this contest, but I know that he has one if not two contests going on right now!
I ended my glorious step back week with a 6 mile marathon pace run and a
My second group run was just as fun as the first. The East Valley Runners (EVR) have what is called “Run and Swim”. Now, before all of the triathletes get into a brick induced frenzy, Run and Swim involves running and then taking a dip in someone’s pool afterwards. No laps, no times, just normal relax the muscles soak.
I will say that running in a group has been interesting. I seem to be in some sort of pace limbo. That is, I am slower than a few of the marathon runners and a lot of the half marathon runners, but I am faster than some of the other marathon runners. I feel that no one is running around the same pace as I would like. This past weekend during my long run, I decided to split the difference and start out with the slower runners and then speed up and run with the fast guys for a while. It was fun, but it made for interesting splits. My first few miles were right around 9 min miles where as my last miles hovered in the 7:50 range. How does everyone else accommodate this?
