I have forwarded all ya'lls questions regarding Redneck Remedy on to my buddy who created it, so I'm going to wait to do the drawing until I hear back from him.
We are *tentatively* training for the Outer Banks Marathon in November. I say tentatively because there are so many things between now and then that could change (friends wedding dates, injury flare-ups, etc) so right now we are just taking things one day at a time. But if everything works out for us to be able to run it, we want to be ready! We're using this plan from Marathon Rookie. I've been trying to figure out the best way to incorporate some strength training without it resulting in me running on legs that are sore and exhausted. I think what is working so far is to go to Body Pump on Mondays and then again on Wednesdays if possible. I just take it easy on the squat/lunge segments so that I'm strengthening but not to the point of fatigue that I cannot run an easy run the next day. With our long runs typically on Saturdays, this gives me at least 2 days for my legs to recover after strength training. I am tired of having a mushy upper body (and lower body now that I think about it....)
This Sunday is our sprint tri, and it should be interesting. We've been running consistently and then just fitting in a bike or swim here and there, but not following any real training program. It may take us 3 hours, but we'll finish:)
My little brother is here visiting from Arkansas. He just graduated last Friday with his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree, and is out here for a vacay to celebrate. He doesn't know it yet but we're roping him into being photographer and cheerleader for us Sunday.
