Athlete Journal: Andrew Read - Triathlon Journal, Entry 4
There have been some changes over the last couple of weeks that have significantly changed my race plans for the next few months, but I've come up with a new challenge.
Athlete Journal: Andrew Read - Spartan Race Training, Entry 3
The last few months have been full of travel and training. I attended the Spartan SGX course and realized I'm going to have to step up my game for the race in November.
Athlete Journal: Andrew Read - Spartan Race Training, Entry 2
Right now I'm at a point in my training where I'm basically embracing the suck. On the bright side, I've found that it's been much easier to keep up with my training during a long trip to the U.S.
Athlete Journal: Andrew Read - Spartan Race Training, Entry 1
My inner crash test dummy is calling again, so I've decided to enter a marathon. Actually, make that TWO back-to-back Spartan Races. Here's how I'm planning to get ready and avoid injury.
Athlete Journal: Julie Warren, Entry 16 - Holding Myself Captive
It hit me this week that the Great Wall marathon is only four weeks away. After I splurged and ate a chocolate bar, I got to thinking and realized maybe I need to adjust some of my own expectations.
Athlete Journal: Julie Warren, Entry 15 - Rest and Recovery
All this down time after the LA Marathon has had me worried that I've lost all the fitness I've gained. Fortunately a long run today confirmed that it's done a lot of good!
Athlete Journal: Andrew Read, Entry 41 - I'm An Ironman
When I started training for Ironman, I wanted a scary challenge. That's what I got. I may not have been a top finisher, but I was pushed to my limits and also saw improvement in my performance.
Athlete Journal: Julie Warren, Entry 14 - Small Sacrifices
With just eight weeks left before the Great Wall marathon and a crazy packed schedule, I've spent the week figuring out how I'm going to balance work, life, and training.
Athlete Journal: Julie Warren, Entry 13 - The LA Marathon
Last weekend was the LA Marathon and it was the most enjoyable race I've done in a long time, if not ever. I set a PR for the course and met all the goals I had hoped to achieve.
Athlete Journal: Andrew Read, Entry 40 - The Last Week
Just one week until Ironman. After months of training twice daily it’s a bit of a shock to find yourself sitting around, but I've actually had some promising training sessions this week.
Athlete Journal: Julie Warren, Entry 12 - Taper Week
This week I'm finishing up my taper week for the LA marathon. I've never done a short taper like this before, so I'm curious to see what the results will be on Sunday.
Athlete Journal: Andrew Read, Entry 39 - The End of the Road
C’mon body, just two weeks to go. One more big dance and I promise I won’t do anything too stupid to you for the rest of the year.
Athlete Journal: Andrew Read, Entry 38 - Goal Times for Ironman
I met a new friend during one of my training sessions and it got me thinking about my goal times for the Ironman - which is only three weeks away now.
Athlete Journal: Julie Warren, Entry 11 - Validation
Finally this past week, I received quantifiable verification that my plan is working. It came just in time - only two weeks until the LA Marathon!
Athlete Journal: Andrew Read, Entry 37 -The Light at the End of the Tunnel
As the weeks wind down I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel as far as training goes. My body finally seems to be healing and adjusting to the high training volume.
Athlete Journal: Julie Warren, Entry 10 - Back to Basics
This week I decided to leave the GPS at home, take off my watch, and just run. With all that freedom to just enjoy myself, I think I fell in love with running all over again.
Athlete Journal: Julie Warren, Entry 9 - Expectation Management
I ran a 10 mile race last weekend. The results were not what I hoped, but what disappointed me most was how I handled the race mentally. Now I'm trying to focus on positive thinking.
