re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - BurtReynoldsMustache
This weeks workout (tomorrow for me) is 20x30s fartlek. If you prefer the track, 16x2s. 20, 30 second mile pace with one minute jogging rest between. 3 mile warm up, 3 mile cool down. Still working on speed week 2 of 6. This is an easier week coming off last week's killer hill workout and fast fi...

re: Runners, What Training Plan With No Race? - BurtReynoldsMustache
End of 2nd week of a 6 week 5K training block. Shorter intervals; sharpen my speed and strength. Then I'm launching into a 12 week marathon block. ...

I get blood work annually. The only thing that has come back of any note is that sometimes I'll be slightly anemic. Follow up always comes back fine though. ...

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - BurtReynoldsMustache
Yeah Roots, Patrick nailed it. If not Eureka, Bentonville. Fayetteville is no longer king in NWA. LSUP Threshold is the pace or steady state, the GAP puts it at vO2 max. For instance I’m hitting the repeats at roughly quicker than marathon pace, but the grade puts it at a 4:50s mile pace. This ...

I’m spoiled for choice on hills where I live. I keep it below 6 but above 2 percent grade, and it’s a rough gps estimate. ...

Speed, form, and strength. The quick intervals at the end teach me to hold form while also training my body what running fast while tired feels like. ...

re: I improved my mile pace by a full minute in one day - BurtReynoldsMustache
[quote]You should be pumped about that if you're not a serious runner. Actually you shouldn't just be pumped, you should enter a few local races to see how you do. [/quote] Yeah, 5:45 pace ain't frickin around. If you're running that on hardly to no training, time to hang up the weights and figure...

re: tOfficial Running Shoe Thread - BurtReynoldsMustache
Is there going to be a second drop for the Alpha? I apparently was on two imaginary lists for it at my local running shop. I should have queued on Nike instead of trusting them. Little did I know that they would refuse to sell them to me. One of their runners got a pair in my size and the owner also...

re: Finally running a sub 7:00 mile pace. - BurtReynoldsMustache
[quote]I still think I can run like I did in high school.[/quote] You can or faster for a lot of distances unless you're talking mile or 800. 5K and up should still be fair game. :cheers:...

Sorry to hear that you're going through depression. As any illness or disease (not meant to stigmatize depression), it's important to treat the symptoms holistically (not holistic medicine, that's nonsense). That treatment involves therapy, exercise, and sometimes medication, hobbies, etc... I r...

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - BurtReynoldsMustache
The shorts get shorter the faster you get. Speaking of, I never understood these cats running in basketball shorts. I can wring about 2 pounds of sweat from my loincloth after a run. I can’t imagine having to deal with some below the knee soaked through nonsense while trying to putt along in 100 per...

re: Adam Klink 4:56 mile & 500# back squat - BurtReynoldsMustache
I think both are impressive for sure in their own right. If he ran the mile first, and then squatted 500, that's an amazing feat IMO. Squat first is still pretty good. That being said, the achievement is probably not getting much attention because of how different the exercises are. I mean, you a...

re: tOfficial Running Shoe Thread - BurtReynoldsMustache
2 pairs. Great all around shoe. Would continue to run them if I could get about 5 more millimeters of stack height throughout. Raced them once, wasn’t the experience I was looking for though. Hard to describe why. ...

re: tOfficial Running Shoe Thread - BurtReynoldsMustache
The first one had a tongue that was oversized which causes rubbing and liked to shift as well. Very durable though and very hot. Not Escalante 1 hot, but close. The second improved the tongue drastically but was kind of overbuilt for a "light shoe". Felt bulky. Durability was suspect as it was s...
