I have fun every time I run, and have recently overcome the "I can't go fast anymore" hurdle. I'm having fun going faster and working towards becoming even faster.
I have raised two running children, one competitive and one not.
I have learned to run in ice and snow and I don't complain.
Short-Term Running Goals:
Work towards a faster marathon by Spring 2012.
Get my 5K down to 21:30.
Place in my division at duathlon and triathlon.
Train for biathlon.
Long-Term Running Goals:
Joining Forrest Gump
I'm a 52 year old mom of two ex homeschooled teenagers. They both think I'm nuts.
Russian champion tries Crocs, commits to racing a marathon in them
Nikolay Chavkin in the video below did 3x1000,
first two in Adidas carbon-fiber models, the last one in Crocs. Surprised by the result (2:52, 2:52, 2:50) with
the fastest interval done in Crocs, he committed to racing a marathon in Crocs if the video gets 42K likes and
195 comments (for 42 km 195 m, the marathon distance). Nikolay's current marathon PR is 2:14:00. The video
was created by a Russian sporting goods store chain. Their moto is
"more sports - brighter life", which we think is wonderful, and also deserves a Like. If you want to see a fast marathon in Crocs, go to the video and click the Like button. And make sure to share it with your friends.
No skiing today, so I did a 200m hill repeat workout. 7X200m on the hills at R pace, and then 4X200 on the flats also at R pace. warm up and cool down jogging, and followed it up with a nice stretching/yoga workout.
