frick. that.

When I did a 50k in early November, it almost hit 75 degrees around noon and that shite HURT. Quite a few people were off in the bushes throwing up.

I couldnt imagine doing an endurance race in summer temps/humidity.

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread
Welp, my fitness appears to be in the tank at the worst possible time. 2nd week of 3 week taper for Sugar Land Marathon on 1/17. My legs are dead and everything feels hard, HR through the roof, etc. Not good. It feels like I'm trying to get acclimated in the middle of August or something. Had a bad stomach bug for most of last week and the guy who works next to me tested positive for COVID recently, so not sure if I got a case of that or what. I may go get a test tomorrow to rule that out. Good news is I took vacation all next week leading up to the race, so I should be able to get a ton of rest/recovery in.

Just not sure if these tempo/anaerobic efforts are doing me more harm than good at this point. I seem to have lost the ability to get in an aerobic session.

I feel ya man. I got a bacterial sinus infection two weeks before MGCM. Still ran, but was having to pound Tylenol and mucinex non stop. Ended up 10 minutes off my goal. It sucks...but at least you are getting to run an actual marathon. 99% have been cancelled, so you’re already ahead of the game.

I feel your pain roots. I took about 9 days off when we went skiing in breckenridge from Christmas to new years. Wanted to run some while there but all the roads/sidewalks near the condo were iced over and the gym was on a reservation only system and wasn't even in my bldg. That time off feels like the kiss of death. I honestly feel like I'm starting from scratch right now. Little 3-5 milers are kicking my ass.

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread
I haven’t ran in 10+ years and have decided to start again. I’ve never ran as far as a half marathon (use to keep it around 5 miles), but plan to in May so today is day one. I’m putting it in writing to hold myself accountable. I am looking for advice from seasoned runners on a great watch for tracking runs. I would like something that won’t require a monthly subscription and is easy to use. Thanks for any advice.

No advice on the watch (I use phone apps). Just wanted to say congratulations and good luck. I started a year ago.

I’d say the Garmin Forerunner series is great and pretty easy to use for beginners. The Garmin desktop interface/app are user friendly as well. I have the Forerunner 245 and love it. There are cheaper and more expensive versions, depending on what you want.

I second TigeRoots on the Garmin consideration. There's no fee to use their phone app or desktop site, and unlike some other popular fitness trackers Garmin devices use built-in GPS so you don't need to bring your phone with you. Right now the Garmin 45 is $150, which is cheaper than the 35 their base watch.

I got a cheaper Forerunner after my vivoactive broke. I realized that I didn't need all of the extra crap.

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread
This would be my suggestion as well. I could get by with a Forerunner 45, but if I was choosing a new watch today I would get the 245 music.

It's time for a new pair. Anyone want to shill a running shoe and try to convince me not to get a pair of Ghost 12/13? 13s are $130 on Amazon, but I did find a cheap pair of 12s for $65 in my size (15) on REI's website. Last two pairs have been Ghost 12s and I wouldn't mind doing them one more time before moving up to the 13s.

Would be hard to pass up the 12s at $65, especially if you have familiarity and are comfortable with them.

Still kind of kicking myself for passing up a pair for $65 at an Academy in Fayetteville, AR last August.

I may be wrong, but I don't believe that the Ghost have seen any significant change over the past few models. Therefore, you shouldn't feel bad buying the cheaper ones.

I nominate the Saucony Triumph 17 for your consideration. Great shoe with a smooth ride. You can probably find cheaper since the Triumph 18 are out.

So I ran a race this past Saturday with a case of Pleurisy and a pinched nerve. Both from the day prior. I am really feeling the pain as a result. I look like a cripple.

My 10k I was running in March officially moved to virtual....for the second year in a row. I didn't think a virus could ruin running, but here we are.

I’m so mad. Getting back into competitive running (maybe organized is a better term ) and my first two got pushed back
