Another week

Posted by Clint Randall Jun 30, 2008

Here goes another week......

 

I have a week off from classes but I'm still at school. Why? I thought it'd be a good idea to get some work study in since I'm a bit strapped for cash right now. However, sleep sounds so good right now!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anyways, had a really good run yesterday afternoon and I'm looking forward to the week ahead.

 

 

Happy running,

 

 

Clint

Running is mainly mental

Posted by Clint Randall Jun 24, 2008

So after having a rough few days getting out to go running, I decided to try and pump myself up a little. I came across these mental strategies that I hope will help me get out of this rut.

 

 

 

 

 

Happy running,

Well today was a bust

Posted by Clint Randall Jun 22, 2008

So today was supposed to be my long run...actually 8 miles to be exact. I have been feeling a bit tired this week so I decided to cut it back to 5 miles just so I can get some distance without killing myself. Turns out I barely made it 3 miles and felt like **** the whole time.

 

 

 

 

 

When will this end???

 

 

 

 

I know I need to change certain things in my life (i.e. sleep habits, food intake) to enable me to have more energy, but I have never felt this run down in a long time.

 

 

 

I've decided to run the Baystate Marathon as my qualifier for the Boston Marathon. It's close and from what I've heard its the easiest marathon to run that will qualify you for the Boston. One thing I've also found out about running in New England is that no race is ever easy.......ever.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Until next time,

 

 

 

Happy running!

Welcome!

Posted by Clint Randall Jun 21, 2008

Hey everyone! I have finally decided to start a blog. Each day, I will try to post about my training for a marathon (TBD) this winter. My hopes are to qualify for the Boston Marathon which is in only 10 months!

 

 

 

 

 

You can find my training regimen on coolrunning's website @: http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_4/128.shtml

 

 

 

 

I am going with this for now, but I plan on doing more research and finding something that may work a little better with my schedule. Feel free to send me any of your thoughts, ideas or comments as well!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy running!
