got it done! won both! second race (5k) was closer.. legs were toast. but hit the gas and made sure to not let a high school whippersnapper beat me lmfao!

so now the question is.. should I sign up for a marathon on Sunday (next week)? I mean.. I don't plan on racing it "slow", i'd like to see how long I can hold 5:5X min/mi splits, and then transition it into whatever. if I could hold it for 10 miles, that'd be an enormous PR.. if I hold it for 13.1 miles, enormous PR. if I hold it for 15 miles.. would put me in good position to actually top3 a marathon, even if I turned it into 6:10-6:30's afterwards....

going to be hard for me to maintain a solid pace with my light af shoes on the roads tho.. but i think i could get pretty far with a decent pace.

might sign up soon :D :ibrunning:

solid kick to end both races! (4:1X-4:2X min/mi). both races ~5:5X min/mi, so 5:5X min/mi for ~10.6 miles or something.

ran two races today (12k & 5k), totaling 17km in honor of the 17 people who lost their lives at msd. ❤ congrats to everyone who raced, especially those who did both! 💪👊 #heartandsole #heartnsole.
.
i'm always down to run for #mentalhealth. running is nature's medicine, and it's fun af.
.
ended up winning both races which is cool. also hit a few PRs. my goal was to *try* and get the W's but also hit every mile split at 5:5X. got it done - for #parkland & #coralsprings from #tamacrack aka #tamarac. ❤😍💪
.
the 5k was rough after running for ~1.5 hours lol.
.
props to @inthezonesports & @accuchip for putting on such great events!!!!

double race day!

12k race recap:
- barely a warmup (got there kinda late - 15min before the race), but felt great, knew it wouldn't be a problem
- ran alone by a big gap, nothing really to report
- mostly pitch dark race, being that it started at 6 AM ET.. i really enjoy those. fun to see the sun coming up slowly etc.
- lead cyclist made sure i didn't run over a banana: "watch out for this banana!"

5k race recap:
- felt decent and awful simultaneously
- felt decent in that my legs still felt fast & loose
- felt awful in that they were annoyed of running fast on road surface
- weird combo..
- race starts, two guys go out at ~6:00-ish pace. one guy i know but i wasn't too worried about him.
- the other was this young h.s. kid, who looked so relaxed, so fresh, effortless pace.. and here i am feeling every stride.
- so i stuck behind them for 0.5 mi.
- then i said, ok this is lame, i'll just try to build a gap and see if the h.s. kid goes
- so i just took off and built a gap and that was that
- nice kid tho

in both races, this lady on bike lead me through the course. this lady was 1 of four cyclists who helped lead various groups of people out, so that they don't get lost etc, and allow the mass of people to form the 'line' of where to go. so since i was out in front in both races by alot, she stayed with me and her teammates stayed back. she did a great job, telling me when mile markers were coming up, alerting the water people that i was coming (which I never used, NO WATER), and alerting me of potholes etc.. she also threw out words of support etc. this group does that for coral springs races, they are amazing. the first time i experienced it was last year's coral springs half marathon, it was incredible. since the pack was 3 people, we had 3 bikes.. and they'd offer us water etc as we were running. it was awesome. i took a few sips but that was it, scared of drinking. other guys drank alot & took gels. but anyway, point is, this cyclist team does an incredible job.

inhaled lots of police motorcycle fumes, lol.. which sucks but, also means it wasn't windy!!! so that was good. :ninja:

hah cool!



i got 2 nice finish line clips. will post tmw!

light but brutal day (hot/humid/hills).

right quad tightened up mid-day out of nowhere. kinda achy but also feels fine. did some deep tissue manually, laid on some lacrosse balls.

02/12/2019

diet:
- ate good/clean

08:00 AM: light + mod uphill: 1h42m @ {steep hill path x 1 hour} ::: (grass, hills, overheat + hills + humidity = brutal) /// tough but good session - lost a ton of water
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2141162052

lost a ton of water, was soaked.

also my forearms/grip was wrecked, both hands, after the run. kinda nuts. don't recall that happening like that before. maybe due to dehydration.

early journaling. light/long day.

fun run. mud/rain/mush.

legs a little achy in some spots (hamstring tendons) probably due to that lacrosse ball stuff i did -> rolling itb/quads was causing those tendons to tighten up occasionally, due to positioning. funny.

also right abdomen a little achy, cramped at the very end of my run yesterday.. i think when it cramps like that, it does a little damage. the good news is, i didn't feel it at all during my 2.5 hour run.

hmm what else.. left achilles "itchy", think i got bit by a mosquito around there.

left heel a little achy.

right quad a little achy from random spaz out mid-day yesterday.. didn't feel it at all during my 2.5 hour run.

left hip flexor/groin still a little tight. felt it a few times randomly during the run. mostly feel it when i move around after sitting for a while etc.

massive chafe from 2.5 hour run in half tights in the rain............ lol.

scrapes from half tights.

bunch of toenails jacked up. mostly feel ok tho. new nail died after 12k+5k on saturday.

right hamstring still a little achy after runs. disappears tho shortly after.

after 2.5 hour run.. legs/feet/knees wrecked for like 10 minutes. then i ate, now they feel good. funny how that works.

just felt like posting more "tweak related news" because this volume is catching up with me a little.. BUT, last run tmw before *two days rest*. that's the plan tho..

accumulating fatigue + supercompensation works good (usually) for dunking and running.. :ninja:

02/13/2019

diet:
- eating good so far

08:15 AM: very light but tough: 2h25m ::: (mush grass/mud/flooding, rain, wind, felt good) /// fun stuff. love runs like that.

REST #2!

felt kinda crappy today. achy from too much rest/sleep i imagine. also left knee painful a little after waking up, probably contracted my leg hard while sleeping or something. right low back achy early on, but got better throughout the day.

should feel good tomorrow though I imagine. should have more "easy" power than the last few races - due to the 2 days complete rest. hoping that gives me a big boost in holding some good pace for a much longer duration.

need to sleep early and wakeup very early (4 AM). race is at 6 AM!

some finishing clips from the 12k/5k last week. great finish (for me) on the first one. ~4:13 min/mi pace.






02/16/2019

diet:
- ate alot! maybe too much..
- having my last meal right now (7 PM)

also took a 2 hour nap.

train wreck race. body was broken down out of nowhere & it had nothing to do with the marathon.

long story short:
- got ~3 hours sleep.
- left hip/left low back/right achilles were bugging from the start of the race.
- left hip tweaked around mile 10. had to "safe run" 16 miles.
- shut it down completely at mile 23 when my hip tweaked again. just jogged it in super slow.
- half marathon was ~2:50 marathon pace, and that was after running the last 3 miles of that 13.1 at 7+ .. sucks :/
- i was ~4th or 5th OA @ mile 15
- I was ~8th or 9th OA @ mile 23 (still 2:58-2:59 marathon pace)
- just couldn't risk pushing it those last miles. plenty of time to run some great marathon times. made the decision to just let it slip away & it didn't bug me at all. safety first.
- i lost like ~10 minutes on my final 3.2 miles, 9:XX-10:XX min/mi pace :ninja:

apparently I made the Boston 2019 qualifying standard.. but not the guaranteed acceptance time. pretty cool.





left hip/low back still hurting. hope it heals up quick.

going to take some rest days.

could have dropped something big. really sucks.

02/17/2019

diet:
- ate good

slept alot afterwards.

06:00 AM: (wreckage - race injuries) Fort Lauderdale Marathon: 18th OA / 3rd AG @ 3:09:33 ::: had to shut it down completely the last 3 miles (hip) /// significant left hip tweak @ mile 10, right achilles felt odd mile 1+ /// my first official marathon!
- https://www.strava.com/activities/2156126832
- https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/3391216362
- http://www.wildsideonline.net/results/2019/a1afull.php
- marathon PR: 3:09:33 (-20min) :personal-record:
- 10k split: 38:XX
- half marathon split: 1:25

sucks but whatever. felt like I was in great shape for this. once the mile splits hit 7+ min/mi, i couldn't keep it under 7 without my hip freaking out.. felt something in there earlier on (+ low back), but it spazzed out on me around mile 10 or so. so then had to try and finish this damn thing without wrecking my hip. tried to start getting it back @ mile ~18 or so (worked with a good dude). kept it low 7's (still 2:5X project) until mile ~22. then my hip tweaked bad (leg buckled) and had to shut it down + jog it in.

lame!

felt fine in my endorphin's. which is pretty cool.

decent 10k (38.x)/half split(1:25). wanted to try and go for low 2:50's.

several hours later, hip def feeling it but i don't think it's going to be anything major.

not sure what the fu*k was up with my achilles.

two potentially scary issues, will take a few days off and hope they disappear.

other than that, feel beat up as expected for running 26.2 in a road race.







really sucks. it was hot/humid but it didn't bother me at all, which is cool. HR got pretty low for the 'safe mode' mileage (last 16 miles). had to stay below pain threshold.

thought about dropping out, but 7:XX was bearable so..
