Still Running

Bob left a comment last week asking if I was still around and reminding me that I had not posted anything for a while.

I am still here and still training.  In fact, I’m still on target for the St. Jude Marathon in Memphis in December.

I have been training using a custom schedule that I build based on the RRCA Coaching Certification I got this summer. 

The plan has a heavy emphasis on building endurance with slow mileage.  I have two more weeks in the “sharping” phase that includes speed work.  So for October, I logged 236 miles. I have put in five 20-plus mile runs and have two more to go.

    I figured you were still running but that life had interfered with blogging. That’s a whale of a lot of miles. The current issue of Running Times has a good article on building a base of long, slow, aerobic miles.

    I knew that moving back to Nairobi would probably mean a decrease in my mileage — a lot fewer options for routes being in a city of 4 million people and at least 10 million vehicles! I’ve been sub-100 miles for the past 2 months but I really want to build back up.

    Wow, those are some good mileage lists, David!! Way to go!!

    Glad the legs are holding up…you are on target for Memphis again.
