Default Training for a marathon.

I am half way done with my training schedule for the White Rock Marathon. Ran 16 miles yesturday and I felt, I had a great run. I have done one other marathon before, but this one I feel my training is going better and I am running stronger. Maybe has something to do with the fact I have pretty much been running hard core since Jan. The other marathon I didn't run much before I started training.
I was also training for a half marathon all summer and never stopped training after that because I was 3 weeks in my marathon training.
I have lost 40 lbs since Jan when I started running again.

Congrats. That's ALOT of weight to shed. Good for you. Man....16 miles. I think I could keep up for about 1.6 of that. Then I'd die.

The first 1.6 is the hardest. After that it is a breeze.

A breeze? You mean the flow of oxygen coming from the oxygen mask covering my mouth as I gasp for air?

Excactly. The flow of o2 coming from the o2 tank through the tube, in the mask, up your nose, in your lungs. See, a breeze. I forgot to mention the breeze of air cause by the motion of your body falling on the ground from fainting. That would cause a breeze as well. There is also the breeze from the ambulance rushing to get you to the ER, because you cracked open your head when you fainted. See just a breeze.

nice job, CnJ. I'm getting the itch to train for another one myself...obviously too late for this year, and there aren't too many in the spring around here (besides Boston, LOL), so it looks like I'll have the whole year to ramp up for a fall one.

Like you, I dropped about 65 lbs while training for different races...just, um, put a little less than half of that back on. Workin' it back off though.

After I ran the marathon, I ate like a friggin champ. Besides all the post race stuff, I had 2 cheesesteaks (we were in philly), a boat load of fries, half a 13x9 pan of brownies and about 14 beers, of which I hardly felt the effect. It was a good day to stuff my gullet!!

I ate the same way except, I didn't stop eatting that way and I didn't start running again until last Jan. So I gained back 25 lbs from April 08 to Jan 09. In Jan of 09 I got into a compitition with some mom friend's of mine to see who could loose the most weight by June of 09. I smoked them both put together. I lost about 25 lbs in the 6 months. Both of them lost about 15 put together. The good thing is, I kept going. And here I am.
