I made it through the first 5 miler over the weekend, although it was pretty hot and fairly grueling. I am thinking that they are all just going to be hard. I am painfully slow.

Today I did 3.36m in about 42min, still in the mid 12's. I did much better on preparing (banana, 1/2 powerbar, 4oz milk and 20oz water). I want to get this down now before the longer runs. I think it was much better although it is a little hard to tell this early, but I don't think I had been doing enough water. Also, need to get my weight down before they get much longer. About 7 pounds would be good.

I was looking back through some records, I actually ran a 5k in the 10's once (pre-Baby Jay), so maybe there is hope for some improvement. I would like to figure out how to post some race results in the side bar, but not there yet.

Sounds like you are doing great! I am still working out nutrition and what works best for me, and am just now starting to get it. I love running in the morning, but I have to eat the right stuff prior or I am finished.

Hello, Welcome back... Thanks for stopping by. Encouragement would be welcomed. I stopped by your site and seen that you are training for a marathon. I have decided at this point that I only want to get back to the half level and run that. I did train for the Chicago marathon in 2005 but instead I had to go to Korea for my brother-in-law's wedding, thus I forfeited my fee and did not run. As far as the extras in the side bar you can add to it by adding elements. Looking forward to talking wiht you soon.
