re: Baton Rouge area tracks open to public? - TigeRoots
[quote]Nobody is touching that track unless it's a meet,or your an LSU track athlete.[/quote] Kinda my thoughts as well. I ended up at East Ascension and all was well until my 9th 800m rep and then kids flooded the track; must have been in PE class or something. Cool that the track is open to the...

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - TigeRoots
Per the plan, 10 x Yasso 800's today as my Marathon Pace predictor for these final 6 weeks of training. Merging this and calculators, spreadsheets, etc. it looks like my target MP will be 7:39/mile, 3:20:00. This seems really aggressive and quite frankly unmanageable to me. That said, it's what ever...

re: Running Coaches- How did you find them and what were the fees? - TigeRoots
The best and easiest to digest book I've run across yet is by Jay Johnson's "Simple Marathon Training". It's catered to "busy adults" and includes specific warm ups (Lunge Matrix/Leg Swings) and cool downs (Strength and Mobility (SAM)) to build strength, so as not to have to do extra strength work. ...

re: Running Coaches- How did you find them and what were the fees? - TigeRoots
Agree, Burt. Unless you are at either end of the spectrum (no clue, too lazy to research, no motivation, etc.) or elite, just follow a book. My opinion at least. Personally, I'm not going to spring for a coach that knows way less about my body than I do. Not like I'm going to qualify for the trials ...

re: tOfficial Running Shoe Thread - TigeRoots
Dick's has 25% off for Cyber Monday. I carted Alphflys, Endorphin Pros and Brooks Hyperion Tempo & Elite and the Brooks were the only 2 that were eligible for the discount. I'm intrigued by the Endorphin Pros, but would like to catch them at a discount....

Baton Rouge area tracks open to public? - TigeRoots
I need to get a track workout in tomorrow and with the kids back in school, I'm running low on options for "during school hours". Anybody know any Baton Rouge area tracks open to the public during the day? I'm in Ascension but willing to travel. ...

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - TigeRoots
[quote]All of my 20ish mile runs ended up being around 8:30 and depending on weather in the 150 HR range. That ended up being about 30 seconds above my MP.[/quote] Good stuff, Quail. My GMP is around 8:00 also. Weather was pretty sticky this am, so will target sub 8:30 from now on, as it should o...

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - TigeRoots
Easy 20 this am, 8:48 pace, 149 avg HR. For you Marathoners, how far off MP are your 18+ easy runs? My plan doesn’t call for me mixing in any MP miles to my long runs until later in the plan. Just curious as to what others have found as far as training paces And my legs are anniha-molished after ...

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - TigeRoots
Yeah, like 15 different waves. I talked to the RD (same one for La. Marathon and MCG) and he said he’s within Phase 2 protocol and unless the Mayor’s office or LDH ride by and see something they don’t like, La. should be a go....

Agreed. Finished the Trot in 19:53. OK with it I guess, 36 after a rough tempo workout and in the middle of a Marathon block. Monday should start the great weather....

[quote]anyone think JBE just nuked LA marathon with the new restrictions?[/quote] Wondering the same. Turkey Trot still on as of now. Edit: Looks like the BR Trot is a go. I threw caution to the wind yesterday and chose not to miss my workout of 5 x 8:00 min intervals in lieu of being fres...

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - TigeRoots
Yeah, gotta admit I was a little bummed to hear you DNF'd. Not nearly as bummed as you are obviously. What pace did you go out at? ... maybe you should call your old "coach" up :lol:...

[quote]We'll probably run some of this course on the weekends over the next month so I'll post when if anyone wants to meet up.[/quote] Good deal. I will likely be doing the same. Ran 18 this past Saturday with the Varsity Sports crew, starting @ the starting line and running much of the course. ...

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - TigeRoots
I’m registered for La., and am too scared shitless. I ran 18 this past Sat (most on the actual course), and 18 the Sat before. Without looking, I think I have 1 more 18, 2 20s and a 22 left before taper. My legs are fried after this last 18, as I was near MP for the bulk of it. (8:10-8:15)... Not by...
