Easy Hot (81 degrees) and humid (87%) at 5am in morning in Singapore. Had to take salt pill, one can of electrolyte drink and two bottles of water on this short run. Completely soaked in sweat. 3rd day of running in heat. HR in high aerobic zone (140 to 148). Tried to keep under 150 but had to run slower.

Medium Long with SJ Fit up Aldercroft Heights to top of hill. Hot. Had to take 2xsalt pills, 1xgu, and 4 bottles of water. On the hills pushed on way up until slight burn in legs. Finished strong with the last 2 miles at 7:18 and 6:48 on the downhill, but heat took its toll --slight light headedness.

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.

Got in six miles yesterday. I walked part of it. My back is bothering me a bit. We moved our offices and I am sure that is the reason. But I did run two miles Saturday at 7:45 pace.

Take care of yourself Bob. Strength training and stretching do help, along with chiropractic adjustments. Also, just finished decompression treatment for my lower back. It made a difference!
+reply by Bob Anderson Wednesday, 5/03, 2017 9:06 am
I think this is sciatica. Not good. I will figure it out but right now it is not helping my running. Glad you are good and I see you have a 100k coming up. Good luck.

Impressive finish Todd! I ran it last year after running Boston. We had Gail force winds. I was thoroughly exhausted when I finished, but my time was my fastest of 3 finishes. Was it windy for you as well?
+reply by Todd Morimoto Monday, 5/01, 2017 10:07 pm
Hurricane Point: had strong gusts; however, the headwind was very welcome and cooling. I tried drafting but everyone was running either faster or slower. I tighten my strap on my hat and barreled forward. There were excellent vista's of ocean, rock and waves. I spent all my energy in the last two miles -- exhausted as well.
