It would seem that my text was out of date. I'm currently focusing on shorter runs and races due mostly to time constraints. I'm also doing alot more ST. My 49th birthday on November 6, is a big deal for me and growing old is my greatest fear, so I keep fighting back. :-)

My Goals:
Currently I am training to run the Hyannis Marathon with the hopes of qualifying for Boston.
I have more short term goals but the long term goal - the goal that really matters, will be a result of completing the short term goals. THAT goal is to live healthy well into old age so that I can continue to do the things that I want to do and live my life the way I want to live it, not be imprisoned in my home by frailty or even worse.

My Program:
I try to eat well - whole grains, vegetables and fruit - very little red meat (or any other kind of meat for that matter) and to maintain my glucose, pasta, rice, etc...

Training - Push hard and when you think you can't push any more, push harder still!

Personal Information:
I live in Connecticut. Married. Three children and four step children, all of whom I love dearly. I'm 50 and an avid runner, exercise nut.
I am currently completing a degree in Computer Networking and hope to find a better job when it is done.

Other Information:
I love movies. Not a big t.v. fan but there are a few shows I enjoy like Leverage, Fringe, House and Bones.

... hi there... are you still doing the P90X challenge and posting on the daily thread?... looks like I am the only one posting now. I am on week 2. This is my first time using P90X.

Well, hope to see you on the team thread. Have a great week!

You're not using any gels during a longer run, esp. a marathon?
You should, of course. I use at least 5. Carry them in a belt made for these.
Pros don't but they're finished in 2 hours :)
Over 3hrs runners use them and so do the pro triathletes.
Nutririon is most important in long distance tri races.
There are several brands, avoid the ones that makes you nauseous, eg I can't stomach Powerbar Gels, but there are plenty superb out there. Try it out in training.
You put in all the hard work in training, then go out in cotton clothes and now without proper nutrition.
I don't think it was the temps, I think you plainly just needed more energy.
On the other hand big well done on your running.
Keep swimming.

I think I may have done my longest run too early in my training in this one and during my taper I think I OVER tapered, if that makes sense. Regardless of those two things though, 65 degrees KILLS me. I really don't handle heat well. That's ok. Hopefully I pulled something from this so when/if I do another, I'll do better.
