Stories of transition will come. There was a lot going on in those tents!!

Can't wait for the stories and the report. So awesome. And finishing a marathon after all that and never having gone longer than 14 miles..... Ridiculous.

Between you, @SFBayDuck, @BassNBrew, and @SayWhat?, we have some crazy BMFs in here.

Hahah, 6,000 calories.  I hope you ate ALL the pizza.

Not too many times you can say that the same race made you both a marathoner and and Ironman.  That's some incredible BMFery.  Congrats, and bask in it.  You earned it.

Can't wait for the RR!

My stomach was a mess. Couldn’t eat really anything. Not one beer either. Today will be a different story

How do you feel today?

Well, since you asked. 

When I peeled off my tri shorts last night I learned I had some terrible chaffing I didn’t know about. The whole region down there is painful. 

Other than that just sore like after any race.

A little hungover, but not too bad. And you?

Yeah, my lower back and piriformis are both kinda tight/sore (as per usual), but other than that, I'm good.  So nice of @gianmarco to ask.  He's the best.

I feel pretty good myself, better than I think I should since I did not finish strong Saturday. But I'm at peace with it for now. Feet still not exactly happy but they will be fine.

I'm currently in that cloud you get in just before you go into over-training mode, so since none of us did anything of consequence this weekend I felt this morning would be an appropriate time to complain about it.

Dude, you ran 20 miles. For the first time ever.

Don't worry about how you finished - just that you did. And you learned some things. I would call that run exactly what you needed at this point in your training.

I'm at peace with it... It's all good. Just after how good I recall feeling at the end of 18, I just had higher hopes for that one. I still have 12 weeks to get ready, IMO.

Highly appreciate all the advice here about getting to 20 sooner than later - definitely a good idea, IMO. Especially for wanting to do a little more than "just finish". This weekend was a great learning opportunity. I feel like I got a lot of doing it and look forward to hopefully doing that better here in a few weeks.

Yep - if you're going to fail a 20 miler then you want it to be the first one. Doing so was the best thing that happened to my wife in her first marathon cycle last year.

What he said.  

Speaking of 20-milers, I've got my first one of the cycle coming up this Saturday.  I've done dozens of 20s over the past 15+ years, but they're still always a little bit intimidating.  There's a timed event happening about 90 minutes from my house on a 3.7-mile loop, so if I can over the idea of spending $60 on a training run, I might head up there and do the 4-hour option.  I'd just run 5.5 loops to get my mileage, walk/jog the rest of the loop as a cool down, and call it a day.

I'll be thinking of you while I'm floating down the Wisconsin River Thursday, Friday, and Saturday drinking beer and catching smallies and muskie.

Enjoy your run!

After talking here and talking with my wife, one of the biggest lessons is the cumulative effects of nutrition, etc. It's been about a year since we got a lot better about food choices at home and such but my wife pointed out that we had a pretty crappy week almost all of last week. Monday night was poker league and I picked up something fast on the way there, Wednesday we moved my daughter back to college and then I umped a baseball game so it was a lot of "grap on the go" stuff. Friday night we went to the AAA baseball game and I ate dinner and snacks at the ballpark. All added together, I'm pretty sure that had a lot to do with not having enough oommph to finish out on Saturday. 

Other than some road crossings, etc, I was sub 9 min/mile for 16 miles and pretty consistent right at 8:50 +/- for all of them. And my HR was pretty much right were I would want it to be, especially given the temps/humidity. There was a lot of success there. Mile 17 was still ok, after that I was in trouble... but that's ok. 

So, overall there was a lot of great stuff that came out of it. And, while not fun, I think it's good to get a good swift kick in the balls now and then to remember this stuff ain't all a walk in the park. I was feeling a little full of myself after that last couple of weeks. Getting some good advice here about some longer runs during the week, as well as a constant vigilance on being properly fueled and such is a great set of lessons to learn with a couple months to go rather than on race day or something. I feel good about it all. Just have to make sure I take the lessons to heart and don't forget about them...

And bonus side is that I'm really starting to get stoked for running the HM. Doing multiple runs longer than 13.1 has that not seeming quite so daunting anymore.

I did enjoy a couple of DogFish Flesh and Blood IPAs Saturday evening with my burger and bacon wrapped stuffed jalapenos. Nothing like a couple of 7.5% beers to wash away the pain of "failure".

I saw my annual demise was on the shelf at the market across the street this weekend. I resisted on that trip, but it'll be more miss than hit from now until they sell out. So I better lose these extra few pounds before Labor Day weekend.

One of my favourites in that area is the Itascafest Marzen from Church Street Brewing.

...if only I could get it here in Calgary!

Yeah, it's awesome. A yearly trip with my uncle, and my 2 brothers usually come in as well. I'll be celebrating my 50th birthday on Thursday sitting on the river with a cold beer and catching fish.

My uncle lives in Wausau, so on Thursday we'll do a stretch of river just north of town. I pick up one of my brothers around 10 in Minneapolis, so we'll be there about 1 or so. On the river by 2, and then my other brother drives in from the Chicago area around dinner time.

We'll do a 12 hour float on Friday - we drop in up-river even more and float back to the north edge of town. We start about 8:30 am and float until dark. Saturday we'll hit a few spots close to town.

Good times.

Celebrated my 43rd Saturday. Wife, who doesn't drink much, went to a local brewery and bought a 6 pack variety of local brews. She had no clue what she was buying but did well. Overpaid but good stuff - A couple sours, a couple IPA.  Then friends brought me a 4 pack of Kentucky bourbon ale. All after I had gone to the class 6 which had a buy 2, get one free 12 pack sale (voodoo ranger), and a fifth of decent bourbon (Jefferson's). 

I think I'm set for a few days.

I’m excited for the PT table on Wednesday to help my effing hammy back on track.  Will be stepping back this week and riding a bike and gym stuff through thurs. Thanks for asking doc.

I do have that to look forward to. Plus my Boston Marathon qualifying time goes up to 3:30.  Only need to shave off 28 minutes or so.

Yeah, it's pretty aggressive. But I'm going to try the Hansen 1/2 marathon plan for 18 weeks, which looks every bit as intense as their marathon plan. With the next 3 months as more base building, I want to push myself on this one. If I can pull this off, then I have a long-term goal I might shoot for.
