Focusing On Form With Long Runs

February 27th, 2017

Overall, I’m more than pleased with how my training has progressed and I’m chomping at the bit to get at the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon, now only less than 3 weeks away!

The AlterG & Running Training – Week 4

February 1st, 2017

I’m happy to report that, with the full lower extremity support that the treadmill provides, I was able to run 5.06 miles AND recover faster the next day.  Whereas I ran 4.5 miles the week before with a high level of soreness and tightness the next morning, I was able to run 5.06 miles with soreness but minimal tightness and absolutely no morning-after pain whatsoever.  And let’s be clear, I’ve NEVER run over 5 miles at once in my entire life! 

Getting the Runner’s High in Week 3!

January 25th, 2017

After my minor setbacks due to allergies in Week 2, I was anxious to see what week 3 of training for the United Airlines New York Half Marathon would bring.  Part of my week was interrupted by the fact that I was travelling back to New Jersey from California in the middle of the week, so the long travel and subsequent adjustment back to east coast time effectively threw a wrench into my training for a day or two.  But by the end of the week, I still managed to see major gains in both total length of run, diet, and energy levels overall!
