I am not iron deficient though.  I think I just run on the low side of normal as far as hemoglobin goes.   Yes, weight training needed - I just hate doing it!

I usually make Saturday's run half the distance of Sunday.  This was not based in any science, but I started this when training for the Goofy Challenge and have just continued to do it.

My loose plan over the next 8 months is to train for Tokyo in Feb with the usual speed work, some hill work, but add one day of cycling/stairmaster and add 2 afternoon sessions of 5-8 miles on the AlterG treadmill.   Then, after Tokyo leading up to Comrades is to decrease the speed work dramatically (maybe one every 2 weeks), increase the hill training significantly, increases distances as per the training plan, and continue to do the cycling/stairmaster day plus there 2 extra afternoon sessions.


That's the plan anyway.  Also got to find a way to increase my hemoglobin (I'm a tad anemic) legally

I got NY through the ballot - jut got lucky.  BRF took a charity place. 

I did 2 20's for Albuquerque last week instead of my usual 4-5, but I did a lot more speed work than ever before.  While I did not realize my goal, I don't think it was the lack of ling runs but rather the altitude.  NY will be run for fun only.

For Tokyo (Feb) I intend to do a lot of speed work again, but I will add in more long runs - but not specify dally for that marathon - more as part of Comrades training.

Thanks Berkeley runner - I have throw away stuff, as well as a flask of hot coffee! I bought a boatload of warm throw aways for Comrades this year - and didn't use it as it was unseasonably warm!

Enjoy. It goes by in a New York minute.

Not this time, I think .   Taking it very slow and easy, going to enjoy the course and the people.   I'm one of those runners who tends to get too focused on performance and forgets to enjoy the place I'm running - so this weekend that's what I'm doing - no concern for time at all.
