LazarusXero said:Ok... so I have officially ran my first 1/2 marathon this morning. Much to my surprise, I felt really good at the end. I compare this to my first ever 5k finish earlier this year when I wanted to vomit, tear off my legs, curl up into a ball and weep. But today was different; I finished in what I considered a respectable time of 1:52:15 which comes out to be a 8:35/mi pace. Just last week I timed myself and ended at 1:59:30, so I think shaving off 7 minutes wasn't too shabby. But now the fun begins... On October 29, I run my first ultra-marathon (50k) and I am getting into the tough training now. For the next 6 weeks, each long run increases by 2 miles from 16 miles this coming weekend to 26 miles which will be the longest run before the actual event. Will I make it? Will I finish? I have no clue. I'll give it a shot, but considering that before this year I had yet to run 2 miles consecutively, I think I've done ok so far...

Preacher said:Another big upvote for Runkeeper. Seeing Rex run sub 5 min miles in XC guilted me into running more than the standard Navy 3.0 mile a year club. We've done a Warrior Dash which was a blast and I plan on doing a Tough Mudder, but that long distance stuff looks a wee bit extreme for me.
LazarusXero said:Well folks... my running season has come to a close. I finished my first ultra-marathon today (50km - 31 mi). My final time was 5 hours 24 minutes which is an average of 10:27/mi. Considering I had never ran a standard marathon, I also made sure to note the time I crossed 26.2 miles. This was 4:27 or 10:12/mi. This year has been interesting. I didn't start it with a goal of even doing any of this. I started running so I didn't make an ass of myself during my Tough Mudder and from then I continued training to see what I could push myself to do. So this year I can officially write the book on "Couch to 50k". I'm glad I'm done. Can't wait til next year. :)
My goal is a Tough Mudder this fall. I love running, but I need to augment it with weights, calisthenics, and other activities.
Okay. I'm partway through the 100 pushups program then going to start TM training. I'm also aiming for a fall TM, but I need to go back to my podiatrist soon
