I am getting going again after some time off. I did Ironman 70.3 Raleigh on June 2 and then took time off from everything. I tried to start back running in August but hurt myself in the first week, so I basically was back to square 1. I actually started out with jog/walking around a track for 2mi. I have not done much milage but it has slowly increased.

Aug 49mi
Sep 109mi
Oct 95mi (as of yesterday)


Today I decided I was going to do a little time trial to get a grasp on where I am fitness wise and so I can be a little more specific in my training. I did a 2400m time trial on the track. I negative split each 400 and ran about 20sec quicker than I thought I would. My result today suggests I should be in around 16:40 5Km shape.
I was quite stoked considering the little training i have done.

Not an earth shattering breakthrough, but a nice little pick me up to move forward with training.

It might have been said, but BREAKTHROUGH is anytime that you have a good race with a PR, and then when you recover and train afterwards the new level of fitness stays with you, thus you have a new base fitness and can work on new goals.

I think then, to be more specific, I brought my marathon time from a 3:34 to a 3:13 in 16 months. That has probably been my biggest breakthrough

A couple of things:

Breakthoguh result at half marathon distance. Ran a 1:51 which for me is awesome. Breakthoguh is gaining confidence I can maintain high effort for two hours without any form of injury (was sore!!)

Also in the pool I realised I have been kicking far too fast and wasting a lot of energy. I saw a swimsmooth tip about kicking slower and in the pool it traslated into much greater endurance. My Wednesday swim session gave me the feeling I can taken on my first 1km session soon.
