The past week

Posted by Clint Randall Jul 16, 2008

Hey all!

 

 

 

 

 

It's been a bit since I posted last, so I'm sorry about that. This past week was crazy and I literally had no time for the computer or anything else for that matter. I came down with a cold last week, totally out of the blue, but I ended up spending the whole week taking care of myself and subsequently my girlfriend.

 

 

 

Anyways, I hate that I lost a week because I was really making some progress, but it was probably for the best.

 

 

 

I came back on Tuesday and started back on my program to see how much I lost.  Turns out, I hadn't lost much at all and in fact, I ended up feeling better this run than I have in a long time. Funny how a week off can do a world of good, eh?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here's how the rest of the week looks in terms of training:

 

 

 

Today: 2 softball games (Yay!  )

 

 

 

Tomorrow: 5 miles in the am, decent pace

 

 

 

Friday: 6 miles in the am, slightly slower pace

 

 

 

Saturday: 3 miles, just under 5k pace

 

 

 

Sunday: 11 miles

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don't think I've ever ran 30 miles in a week, but I'm feeling better and better about my running, so I should do fine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also, I'm beginning my planning phase for this upcoming track season at Wentworth. I'm beginning my first year as head coach and distance coach. I'm using this first year as a learning year, trying to pick up new ideas to use and hopefully to keep students coming back. If anyone has any ideas for training programs in sprinting, distance and field events, it would be much appreciated!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Till next time,

I need more content!

I've realized that this blog hasn't become much of anything other than me complaining that I don't want to run.

 

 

 

 

 

I've decided that I will try and do more research on running and nutrition so that I can bring more to this community. Nutrition especially because that is something I have always been interested in but haven't learned nearly enough about.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy running,

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

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!
