Stevie talks about how she is doing with the Insanity Workout. I talk about tomorrow’s sprint triathlon and my recent trip to Chicago. We also have a ton of great e-mail and voicemail messages from listeners including a perspective on running in Vietnam.
This week, phimosis adiposity we talk about our upcoming Wine and Dine Half-Marathon, Stevie’s new shoes, attempting to find work-life balance (e.g. do what Allan say, not what Allan does), and a few thoughts on running while on cruise ships. Not many races are happening right now, but they’ll start again once the air gets a little crisp, so our question for this episode is: What are your fall plans?

    Great show, continue to enjoy it greatly. When you went on your rant, Stevie, one thing kept going through my head: If all your body knows are 10Ks, then you will get very good at that distance….and that is all. As you and Allan so nicely pointed out, the endurance training the body needs to complete the half-marathon is significantly greater than that for a 10K. Without at least approaching the distance (though I still respectfully contend that the body needs the experience of the full distance in training), the body will not know how to respond when pushed, and may ultimately crash.

      Right. He MAY be okay. He MAY not. By not going close to the distance, he will have no idea what will actually happen on race day and may not be able to handle something new that happens in his body because it isn't used to running more than 6.2 miles. 13.1 is a significant jump!

      I'm a very optimistic guy, but that doesn't mean just hoping for the best. It means doing everything you can to ensure your success and THEN hoping for a good outcome.

    I agree. I would never underestimate the the potential of the human spirit. However as many runners have painfully discovered, success favors the prepared body (to extend the Louis Pasteur observation that "Chance favors only the prepared mind").

    • Allan Gyorke says:

      Heh – the phrase "call on God, but row away from the rocks" has always stuck with me. Not that I'm religious, but the combination of hope and purposeful action are powerful – and in fact the only way that anything gets done.
