Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Fri Oct 31st, 2008, 7 comments

hey folks. I am curious: does anyone read this? I have had a few comments, but if you’re out there, let me know. I would love to have an idea if there are more than 2 people reading this Today’s run, (which is supposed to be a Thursday run) went okay. I did 45 minutes [...]

Little bit-o-speed

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Wed Oct 29th, 2008, 0 comments

Danny is careful when he explains speed workouts to me: “Don’t think speed, just think length and looseness and being relaxed…” That said: I went down to Carrier Park because it’s flat and today’s run is supposed to be accelerations on flats on pavement. Since the run I am doing is on pavement, I need [...]

New schedule

Back in the saddle: Since my long run on Sunday was technically the last day of the 10 week training, I wasn’t sure what the next steps were. Danny and I spoke this morning, and here is the verdict for the next set of training (# of weeks TBD): Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday runs like [...]

LSD, oh how I love you. (this is a long entry)

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Sun Oct 26th, 2008, 5 comments

Today was my first 10 run. Not ten miles (though close), but 10 on the infamous scale. Really, it was incredible. I think the mapmyrun.com version isn’t quite as much distance as I ran, but it might be my happiness/ego getting in the way. I was supposed to do 1:45 hrs, but only did 1:33 [...]

No, i wasn’t clobbered by a big slobbering dog today at the track: I was the slobbering dog. Skipped the track yesterday cause work had me at the office till too late… if I had gone I would have been running in the dark, which I don’t want to do… So, I decided to head [...]

LSD rocks.

Since we ran the race in Hickory yesterday, we decided to stay in Morganton instead of going back to Asheville (click here to see the locations of these towns if you wish). I had a hard time deciding if/when I was going to run today, but once I got my clothes on and figured an [...]

Saturday SGK 5K

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Sat Oct 18th, 2008, 0 comments

We did a nice little 5K run today to benefit the local chapter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation. My grandmother passed away in 2003, after a long 5 year battle with breast cancer. I ran today in her honor. It was a good run, a bit hillier than I anticipated, and much colder! We [...]

short

it’s Friday, not Thursday, and even though I was supposed to do a 60 min form run, I only ran for 25 minutes: Ivan and I are running in a 5k tomorrrow, and even though it’s not a big deal, I didn’t want to overdo it and then also have my long run on Sunday, [...]

Overtraining - Are You at Risk?

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Fri Oct 17th, 2008, 0 comments

In a recent New York Times article about the dangers of overtraining, the author told the story of a 15-year-old high school runner who became a victim of overtraining. He was running more miles in his training while running increasingly slower times in his races (1500m). The author quotes a doctor who has written about the ...

track is starting to grow on me…

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Wed Oct 15th, 2008, 0 comments

so it’s a day late but hardly a dollar short. It’s been freakishly warm here the last couple days and yesterday was no exception… and since you all know how much i relish running in warm weather, i decided to forego the track workout yesterday and went this morning instead… 6.30 came early and i [...]

A Chi Running Love Letter

I picked up your book 2 months ago. My wife saw you on CNN. I stopped running 15 years ago due to tendonitis in my left leg.
