Good job at the SF Marathon. Good pacing.
Profile: Kat Powell Monday, 7/24, 2017 3:44 pm
Just finished my 90 min yoga class at Bikram Yoga San Jose. Have been taking a 90 min class daily since July 1. This is their Summer 60 Day Challenge, where you take one yoga class a day for 60 days. These are brutally tough classes in a hot(105-108F, 50% humidity) room, where we start with a breathing exercise, do 26 postures , and finish with a different breathing exercise. So I call this Yoga 26.2. It feels like running a marathon and takes the same amount of mental tenacity. Missed my class Sunday, because of running SF Marathon and going to Marin park for group picnic, so will need to do a Double Yoga session in 1 day soon to make up for this. Have been working very hard to improve my balance and flexibility and strengthen my spine.

Still resting hamstring but was able to run/walk a very easy 3 miles.
+reply by Bob Anderson Friday, 6/16, 2017 9:01 am
Take care of that hamstring. When I had this issue I put on a patch (day and night) and took some magnesium tablets and solved the problem in about ten days. Just an idea.
+reply by Roger Wright Friday, 6/16, 2017 3:00 pm
Thanks for the ideas Bob. I have been stretching it and not running and it seems to be getting better. I have slowly been increasing my miles. See what happens this weekend. Hope you are well.

Mountains 2 Beach Marathon Fast course - went out too fast and left pacer, who caught me at mile 21. I tried to keep up but my legs were shot. I had a gradual fade from mile 16 to 26 but kept miles below 8 min/miles. This was the second fastest marathon and 5th fastest half marathon. 5 Gu's, two Stinger waffles before, one can of coffee, and carried water bottle. Tried salt pill but coughed it up. I had the speed but not the endurance -- need more 20-22 miles long runs. This was the 3rd marathon in 6 weeks.
