    Goals: Bow Lake 15k in April, 1/2 Marathon in May, build base for fall marathon, lose another
    5 - 10 lbs

    Monday: 6mi (8:30 pace) Tuesday: 14mi (9:15 pace) Wednesday: off Thursday: 7mi (8:20 pace) Friday:
    5mi (8:30 pace) Saturday: 8mi (8:30 pace) Sunday: 4mi (recovery run) Total: 44 miles

    Went to see a nutritionist this week to figure out maintenance plan. Not sure if I agree with what
    she is doing. She says she believes in a balanced ratio of protein, fat and carbs (33/33/34). I
    think that's too much fat but I told her I'd give it a month. She also says I only need about 1800
    calories to maintain my weight (180lbs). Any thoughts on this from anyone? Any better suggestions?

    "Balanced" means different things to different people. Does she know you're marathon training ? With
    your carbs that low (that's about 150gm), you may find it helps if you take some just before and
    during your runs (e.g. gels).

    It's all very well to "believe" in something, but one size doesn't fit all. I'm skeptical as to
    whether she understands the implications of running over 40mpw (nearly 1000cal/day for you -- which
    means 1800/day is probably not "maintenance") Of course most people underestimate their intake, so
    the typicl person who believes they're taking 1800 may be taking quite a lot more.

    As has already been mentioned before -- there's little basis for making protein a given percentage
    of your intake. Instead, work out what your protein requirements are and have that much (about
    125gm for you)

    Trial and error is the only way to know exactly what "maintenance" is. But 1800 sounds low. So I
    think you'll lose weight on that (but training won't be as much fun) Take a look at this URL:

    Way too few calories for a runner of your mileage. That's a given. I could live on that (and I have)
    if I was sedentary and unemployed,
    i.e. loafing around all day.

    Everyone has opinions of the ratios, and I think there's a margin of error based on the uniqueness
    of each individual. I won't really get into that, but at the very least I'd suggest raising the carb
    level and lowering the fat an equal amount - ratios are up to you.

    Although I think your caloric expenditure math is off (probably more like 400 - 500 calories a day
    avg. spent on running), you are right on the money.

    A lot of these studies/opinions (like the sodium study posted earlier) are probably realistic for a
    more-or-less average individual who perhaps exercises moderately at best.

    Here's a couple other sites with algorithms for calculating calorie needs:

    http://www.weight-loss-i.com/calorie-needs-katch-mcardle.htm

    and

    http://www.weight-loss-i.com/calorie-needs-harris-benedict.htm

    Any way you slice it, though, 1800 calories/day seems like an extremely low maintenance level for a
    180 lb male, unless you are laying in bed all day.

    goals: make it to and through my first marathon, Feb 22.

    M: 4mi (treadmill + 4.5 elliptical trainer)
    N: 7mi incl 10x400 w/descending rests; avg 1:34.7
    O: 4mi (tm + 4.5 et)
    P: 8mi (8:28), felt fine
    Q: 9.3mi (9:17), some knee/hip (ITB) twinges Sa: 4mi (tm + 4.5 et) Su: 16.8mi (8:31), felt good

    total: 53.1 miles running (plus 13.5 et)

    ITB continues to improve, though it flared a bit (and then subsided) toward the end of the week. Now
    it's taper time, and for good measure I'll "run" about 40% of next week's miles on the elliptical
    trainer. As for the marathon: I've got a goal and a plan, and I've done a lot of training, so we'll
    see if it all comes together next Sunday.

    Good week all

    M 4.25 mi Tu DNR W 4.5 mi Th 4.5 mi F DNR S 2.5 mi Su 7.5 mi

    Total = 23.25

    Goals: 10 milers Feb. 22, sub 2 hr time; 28-30 weekly milage, lose 30 lbs in 2004, trail half
    marathon in fall.

    All told, not a bad week. Did 3 of my miles at 11:15 on Monday, and a low-key short club race on
    soft trails at 11:20 on Saturday. I wish I had figured out a way to work in more 10-mile training
    runs in the past month, but it just wasn't in the cards. Will take it easy, other than the race, the
    next two weeks, and after that I can regroup and figure out how to schedule the 30 mi/week including
    a 2-2.5 hour long run.

    Mon rest Tue 7.0 mi, easy Wed 9.0 mi, pmp - 3 up, 4 @ 8:01/mi, 2 down Thu 7.0 mi, easy hills Fri
    rest Sat 5.1 mi, easy Sun 12.0 mi, rain, hail, wind Ttl 40.1 mi

    My first week at 40 miles since December '99. Next week is a recovery week of 25 miles. I plan on
    maintaining a holding pattern of 40, 40, 40, 25 mpw until week ending 4/25. After that I will begin
    a 24-week marathon training program that will culminate with the Chicago marathon on 10/10. I am
    adding some faster paced running on Wednesdays. Mostly planned marathon pace and threshold pace.
    Also, picking up the pace a bit for the last 3 miles of my long run.

    Today's long run was interesting. 40 deg F, steady rain, even some hail. After 6 miles I felt a
    weather front coming because of a big increase of wind velocity at my back. That was followed by a
    sudden chill and pelting rain and hail. I was dressed with a Hind DryLite hat, Insport long-sleeve
    shirt, Activent vest, Hind knee-length tights (fitness shorts), Hind DryLite Petroglyph gloves, and
    vaseline in various places. The hail really stung my exposed legs and face, especially when I turned
    into the wind. After the hail subsided, the rain intensified and caused my hands to become numb. I
    pulled the sleeves of my shirt over my gloves to help keep them a little warmer. I had my cell phone
    with me and was seriously considering calling someone to pick me up. But since I'd already done half
    of the 12-miler, I might as well run home and finish it. I'm glad I finished the run, because even
    though my hands were numb, it wasn't painful and I wasn't chilled to the bone, just my hands and
    legs. What really saved the run was the Activent vest. Donovan would say this is "serious overkill."
    However, in this case, with the rain, hail and wind, it definitely was helpful. So I think I have
    this running in cold rain thing figured out, except for one thing: the gloves. The gloves I have are
    great for dry weather down to about 25 deg F. However, if they get wet they are useless. Is there a
    glove out there that anyone can recommend for cold, wet weather running?

    FWIW, here's how I got the numbers: they're based on 100cal/mile for a 137lb runner.

    45m/w * 100cal/mile * 180/137 / (7days/w) = 844

    The 100cal/mile for a 137lb runner number is based on the ACSM numbers quoted in "Exercise
    Physiology" by McArdle, Katch and Katch.

    Haven't been posting here much since a lot of my attention has moved over to the RW forums but for
    me last week was 31 miles (3 seven milers and 2 five milers) all at an easy pace (for me about 8
    MPM). Not training for anythng, just trying to keep 25 to 30 MPW and see what the spring might
    bring. Doug Burke

    Goals:

    Sub 3 in Boston. While I'm at it, get under 160 pounds!

    M: rest Tu: 8mi, including 8x800 @2:40-2:50 (avg 2:47) w/ 2:50 rest.

    Total: 55 miles.

    Things I learned this week:
    1) Pump those arms in the 800s to go faster.
    2) Long run turned out to be a marathon tempo run with no effort. I don't know if I could keep that
    up for another 8 miles, but it's encouraging.

    O: running, 8M, comfortable (1:02:15) @ 7:53 pace. Longest thus far, glad to be feeling this well.
    P: serious weights (concentration on legs).
    Q: running, 5M, fairly easy (39:01) but tight from Thursday.
    R: rest day.

    I ran a shit 5km race today. Stuck with the chase group all vying for 2nd and 3rd place and lost it
    with about 200m to go and came in 4th with a
    17:3x time. I'm really irritated about my inabitlity to deal with the final moments of a race. I
    know I've been training for much longer races, but I WILL eradicate this problem.

    Couple ideas. Windstopper gloves/mittens are windproof and probably pretty water repellant or
    resistant based on reviews of windstopper fabric, but I haven't worn mine in the rain that I
    remember. Neoprene gloves do soak through if in rain for long time (multiple hours) but the thin
    layer of water next to your skin should stay warm unless you take them off. I use these for field
    work in pouring rain, but don't use them running. Or you could get a nylon or other waterproof/water
    resistant shell for your present mittens or wear the shell mittens alone.

    The mittens I use are waterproof and insulated (filled one mitten with water from tap and it didn't
    leak a drop) and I've used them to -20F with warm, toasty hands, although almost sweaty - but I'm
    not complaining :) I think the outer insulation might get wet in rain, but hands will be dry. Might
    be overkill for 25-40F, but maybe not. Problem might be that they are Wells Lamont with Microlar 3
    insert (last ones are from "Hotfingers" line). I usually find them in the "small hands" (women,
    kids) section and I'm not sure I've seen similar mittens in men's area. I guess they figure only
    women and children play in the snow ;) Another marketing mystery.

    Yes she does know I'm in Marathon training but still said that was the calories I needed. She is all
    about the "Eat like a caveman" diet. When I asked her what I could have during a long run, she said
    nothing since everything is processed and just gives you a sugar high for a few minutes and then you
    crash. Something tells me I should find another nutritionist.
