Training Schedule Week of Oct 24 to 30

Congratulations to those that finished the Boca 30K (18.6 miles) race this past weekend. For some, it was there longest run ever!
Andy Yu was 2nd place overall. Wow! With a time of 1:58. Great run!!
Michael Cacal 4th in his age group. Yukio Ushida 4th, and Al Chun 1st… at the age of 80!

Paige Maas finished 3rd in her age group. Debbie Nelson 2nd, and Keiko Shinozuka 4th. 

Next up…. the Honolulu Marathon on December 11th. However, there are other races of all distances before then.

For those of you training for the marathon – you should try to run at least 5-6 days a week for the rest of this month. And, then 6-7 days during the month of November.
Suggested marathon training (35 to 80 miles):
1 day of interval speedwork or hills (2 to 3.5 miles at 80 to 90 percent effort level, not including warm up/ cool down) , 
1 medium distance tempo run (8 to 12 miles at 70 percent)
1 medium distance run (10 to 14 miles at an easy pace of 50 to 60 percent)
1 long run (15 to 20 miles)
Other days are easy for 40 minutes to an hour
Try to alternate days: hard and easy. However, it’s ok to do two hard days in a row as long as you take two consecutive recovery days. If you are feeling tired, it’s ok to start out on an easy run and then see how you are feeling after that.

It’s also time to step up your nutrition. Feed your body good foods. Focus on veggies, fruits, beans, and grains. A really good checklist is Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen, which is also an app that you can download to your phone:
(He even recommends about an hour of exercise every day!)

Important! Try to get at least 8 hours of sleep every night to let your body recover properly. My formula used to be 8 hours plus 1 minute for the number of miles I ran that week. Example: 50 weekly miles run. Then sleep 8 hours and 50 minutes every night. Power naps are also ok. Try to find a quiet, dark place.
