  1. I'm rooting for Christine Ramsey she made a big enough impression on me that I mentioned her in two race reports back in 2018.
  2. I would race the 2nd half in March, you deserve to see the benefit of all the work that you have put in and March is great time of year to be racing. I'd start with week 15 of your marathon training plan.
  3. Your consistency has been great and you're on your way to having a tremendous year. One thing you might want to consider is to schedule a few week recovery period. With your marathon at the end of July that is a long time to be On, considering you set a mileage PR in December and seem to be charging ahead. If you race that 2nd half in March perhaps take 2-3 weeks to recover before starting your marathon cycle. I don't think it would hurt you to make that 18 week marathon plan a 15 week one.
  4. You're a much different type of runner than @MAC_32 and I. You're an endurance monster who probably runs a marathon faster than 99% of the runners that share your 5K PR. @MAC_32 could probably run a 5K faster than 99% of the runners that share his marathon PR. That being said I do find it surprising that you need to eat before running. I fuel before running at most 10% of the time.
  5. From the McMillan Article I posted "Finally, (and this is optional) a great way to ensure that you will deplete your carbohydrate stores on these long, steady runs is to not eat any carbohydrates immediately before or during the run. Any carbohydrates ingested will be used by the body for fuel, and we don’t want this. We want to deny the body carbohydrates in these runs so that the muscles will become better at sparing the carbohydrate stores, more efficient at burning fat and used to running with lowered blood glucose levels. Now, many people think I’m crazy when I say this, but it works. It takes time to get adjusted to it if you have always been carbing up before and during your long runs, but with time and practice you can do it. I will note, however, that it is important to drink water and electrolytes throughout these runs so that you don’t get dehydrated. I also recommend carrying an energy gel with you just in case you run into trouble (like taking a wrong turn, having to run longer than expected and getting a little woozy)." I don't want to read too much into one run, but the fact that @MAC_32had issues running fasted in a run that wasn't 15 miles is kind of concerning for the marathon. I don't know if his schedule would allow it but I think he could benefit from attempting similar type runs first thing in the morning, fasted.
  6. Speaking of popcorn, the wife and I finished Season 1 of Broadchurch last night. Great recommendation.
  7. It should be 31 degrees at the start, so yeah pretty good conditions.
  8. I am racing a 5 miler tomorrow, which should be an interesting experiment. I have been base building so far this year so racing this distance should be a shock to the system. I am pretty sure the last time I ran a sub 6 minute mile was in August. I’ll be going for sub 30 and will be surprised if I can’t break 30:30. Either way it should be fun to torture myself and compete a bit. I feel pretty good about building back up my endurance so far and hope to increase the mileage a bit the next few weeks.
  9. Are you running Broad Street? I will be running it.
  10. That is pretty cool, I am looking forward to telling my kids that.
  11. Speaking of mileage I reached a milestone this morning, 20,000 miles. # runs 2532 Average distance/run 7.9 miles Time spend running 2726 hours 58 minutes (113.62 days) Average pace 8:11 Average HR 141 Calories burned 2,153,128 First Run Dec 30 2010 Hopefully I have 40,000 more in me.
  12. I am guessing the temperature has more to do with it than the pace, you're body can't be prepared to run efficiently in 70 degrees in February. I know I was struggling this morning with 6 miles in a warm gym on the treadmill, I am hoping my issue was hydration related.
  13. I have been thinking about how to respond to this, please just read these two articles. The key point in the long run article is: "Finally, (and this is optional) a great way to ensure that you will deplete your carbohydrate stores on these long, steady runs is to not eat any carbohydrates immediately before or during the run. Any carbohydrates ingested will be used by the body for fuel, and we don’t want this. We want to deny the body carbohydrates in these runs so that the muscles will become better at sparing the carbohydrate stores, more efficient at burning fat and used to running with lowered blood glucose levels. Now, many people think I’m crazy when I say this, but it works. It takes time to get adjusted to it if you have always been carbing up before and during your long runs, but with time and practice you can do it." You have the speed and talent to easily run a sub 3, the only question to me is if you will train yourself to be a more economical runner. I don't know about @gruecd or @Juxtatarot but I have never been passed by anyone eating a sandwich on course.
  14. Are you considering carrying a sandwich on race day?
  15. I’ll be attempting to do the same thing with you at Monumental.
