Let’s talk training: Lessons learned

13 11 2014

I’ll be up front, my mind is very focused on the Richmond Marathon. This will be mine on Saturday afternoon.

I have learned a lot the year.

-I require a lot of recovery for runs longer than 14 or 15 miles. I don’t bounce back from on LONG run fast, I’ve listened to my body and took time to heal before I run again.

-Marathon training=weight gain. It happens, and you just have to deal with it. It’s not a good time to diet.

-Half marathons are awesome.

-Glucosamine is a lifesaver. My knees are super achy without it.

-Sleep is very necessary, without it I can’t keep running.

-Running in different time zones is hard, but if you west, stay in your timezone and race day wake up call won’t be so hard!

What lessons have you learned?
