No kidding. I'm sitting here hitting refresh - anxiously awaiting poop reports.

Start racing already.... :headbang:

New page so we don't have to search.

 

 

@gruecd: A goal:  2:56-2:57 B goal:  sub-2:59:25 (PR) C goal:  sub-3

@SteelCurtain : sub 3:15. Current PR is 3:15:00. Boston Marathon qualifier goal: 3:20:00 (cushion for 3:25:00)

@pbm107: sub 1:23:23. Would be a PR

@The Iguana: sub 3:00, which would be a PR. Actually 3:40:00.

Nah, I do.  Have to have a fresh undercarriage before a race.

And I'm laughing here. @The Iguana is already at the race and you are just jumping in the shower. :lol:

Lying on the couch watching the Fighter, I forgot how good Amy Adams looks as a trashy bartender. This movie movie should put me in a different state of mind than my last race when I watched Bill and Ted’s.

I would shower but didn't want to disturb my wife too much. She's still sleeping peacefully at home.

My priority is to race when it’s colder, so usually I like racing earlier in the day, but it’s 19 degrees out there now and it should be 34 by 10AM which should be perfect for me.

I put my pace band at 3:13 in case all was going right.  
 

admittedly, my weather has sucked for several years of marathons.  So I’m scarred from temps in the 70’s.  Or a frozen monsoon at Boston.

I don’t eat or shower before runs or races. Maybe that’s why I bomb them.

Don't remember if I posted this already or not, but I've got my usual tiered goals again for Saturday:

A goal:  2:56-2:57

B goal:  sub-2:59:25 (PR)

C goal:  sub-3

Plan right now is to run with the 3:00 pacer for the first 10K (to make sure I don't go out too fast again), and then hopefully settle into 6:40-6:45 pace the rest of the way.  If everything goes as planned, I'll run about a 1-minute negative split -- around 1:28:48 for the first half and 1:27:42 for the second. 

Definitely gonna keep a close eye on that pacer, though.  Last year I remember taking the turn south onto Meridian around mile 24 and being on pace to finish sub-3, and the 3-hour pace group was ahead of me.  If this dude is trying to bank time in the beginning, then there's obviously no point in me running with him.

For anyone who wants to track, you can download the CNO Monumental Marathon app.  I'm bib #1109.

Wonder if he stayed with the pacer

With all three about 1-2 minutes slower than their intended pace, I'm wondering if the 10K mat is long.

So here we go.....

 

My plan for Indy.  This training cycle has been sporadic at best.  It started a bit before I went backpacking in July. I threw down back to back 100 mile weeks to prepare for no running for two weeks while backpacking (second half of July).  I got back from backpacking and tried to ramp up training preparing for Chicago marathon and quickly got derailed.  I wasn't able to hit paces for anything.  I was a mess physically and mentally.

 

I took 10 days pretty much off and started to lift during that time.  I did a 13 mile week spread over 4-5 runs which for me is probably my lowest week of running in several years. 

 

By the time late August came along, I had ramped back up and started my training.  It was too late to pull things together for Chicago (early October), so i started to look for a race a bit later.  I saw that @gruecd and @The Iguana would be doing Monumental Marathon in Indianapolis.   I knew it was a fast course and a friend of mine's husband actually founded this race 20 years ago.  So I decided to sign up.

My training has been a bit abbreviated. I did a bit of lifting...but wish I could have done more.  I did a fair amount of running....but wish I could have done more. 

These last couple weeks have been stressful with work and I am currently traveling for work in Atlanta.  Traveling does take a lot of energy out of me, so I worry about that impact on me for race day.

 

My PR is 3:15:00.  My BQ time (as a 50 year old) is 3:25....so I really need 3:20 to feel comfortable about Boston for 2021.

I've thought a lot about how to approach this race given the cold, flat, and my training.  I've only negative split one of my races (pacing doesn't count). It was in Philadelphia when I ran Philadelphia marathon with @Ned.  My goal was 3:30 that day and I ran a 3:29:11. 

I have decided I will run the first section of the race with the 3:20 pacer. This will allow me to warm up in the cold and hopefully not tax my body too much. After 4 miles with that group, I will leave them and pick up the pace in search of the 3:15 pacer.  I am projecting I'll catch the 3:15 pacer at around mile 14 (obviously depends on that individual's pacing). I'll reset with them and run with the 3:15 group for 3 miles.  Leaving them around mile 16-17 and trying to go get that PR.  I have put together a pacing plan that has me tracking for a 2 minute PR.  I'm honestly not sure I can pull it off, but I wanted to give myself a goal to strive for.

 

Below is my race band which is what I'll be using during the race.  So you will be able to see if I'm on track or not.  I'll admit I have a bad feeling about this race. It doesn't seem like my body doesn't feel strong/fast.  But I'll try to be positive and I'm going to go for it.  I'm not flying halfway across the country to run a 3:24, so I'm gonna leave it all out there and try to PR.
