    Default The daily run. Training program

    What are you doing to get your long distance running up to speed? Any specific programs or just slowly building up? Post up your routine, miles and accomplishments as we prepare for Tough Mudder in Jan

    My first goal is to be able to run a 1/4 mile without walking. I have been working with a running coach and he has me doing pace work. Run 1/2 track brisk walk 1/2. Repeat 3x each time being as fast or faster. I have also been walking on nights when not running. 3 miles with 30lbs extra. I work in bleachers during the walk. I need to start doing more strength training .

    I'm still deciding how I like the routine, but for right now I'm doing 3 days a week, trying to add in a tfourth.

    1. resistance training followed by a longer distance run
    2. resistance training with intense cardio between exercises. ex. sprints for 5 mins, 4 sets of chest exercise, 5 min sprint on the bike, 4 sets of back exercise.
    3. running and yoga. -not at the same time.

    ...although I hurt my back again, so I'll probably be more stretching and bike work for the next week.

    Did you hurt your back "again" again (like, since Colorado)?

    I used to run but found if I took my car I got there much faster.

    I have hit a wall hard... I cant seem to get past the 2 mile mark. Last night I had to fight to get past 1 mile.

    I need to be at 6 miles running by Dec. Thats not long to add 4 miles.

    Going to try some hill runs and just work on not passing out

    Hope all your workouts are going good and you are making and breaking your goals!

    Nice.

    I played 18 holes of golf at Silverleaf this morning... I had to walk to the cart. Does this count as exercise?

    (I'm so proud of you buddy. You are so committed to this... you know I'm just jealous.)
