Hi, I'm a masters runner training for marathons usually. I've recently moved here from CA and really miss my running peeps. Anyone know a group that trains fairly seriously but has a lot of fun too.…Continue

"Oh I feel your frustration. My former Goal Marathon Pace is now a Vo2Max effort and current half Marathon pace effort was my former easy/recovery pace. Trying to let it go but yes, it's beyond frustrating. "

"So true. I don't sleep as well and recovery has been an issue. I've had to adjust my training accordingly."

"I don't that much about marathon running, but how's your sleep since moving to ABQ?  Sleep quality (and other health fundamentals) can have insidious impacts on athletics.  I know it affects mine.  Sleeping is one aspect of…"

"I started running, as opposed to other sports which included running a little later than that, with my puppy Aug 96. I started "training" several years later which goes back to living up to your potential. Hopefully I can still break 2:40…"

"Yeah I don't know where the masters runners are here. It's kind of odd. Perhaps the altitude affects us more? I had a period in my late 30's when I thought my pr days were over but the training is cumulative and it payed of at…"

"All I can tell you two is that you still have many years of running in you. I started running in 7th grade and still going strong now that I'm approaching 60. I can even say that I believe I am having more fun running now than I did in my…"

"My run splits disagree. They say I am old. Work this last year has also been a major factor making sure I fully feel the effects of my age. From what I have seen, assuming you live up to your fullest potential from the start, you will peak for the…"

"38?? are you kidding me? You are coming up on your fastest years. Maybe not in the mile or lower but for everything higher, pr's are possible. I ran all my PR's at 40-41. Now I'm 42 but moving here has been a death sentence for my…"

"Sorry, but 38 is not old ;)"

Scott replied to Stephanie Ward's discussion Running Groups
"In the past, I added one year to my definition of old every year. Now, old appears to be 38 and holding. My days of potentially getting faster are over. Now I just have to hold off the decline. A friend who turns 51 in a few weeks can still run…"

"It is normal to go through fluctuations in performance. I'm not sure what your age is, but I'm sure your coach understands this and is hopefully accommodating your training with altered diet, rest and mixing up your workout routine. I…"

"And how old is old?? I'm finding no benefits to me thus far. I've just experienced a down ward spiral of all my fitness decreasing with each passing month despite consistent training. I'm guessing folks adapt differently or just dont.…"

Stephanie Ward replied to Stephanie Ward's discussion Running Groups
"I hope you are right but I've been told I'll adapt for 8 months now. (I'm giving it a year, then??) I've tried everything. Lots of short speed, Can't tolerate long and fast, HR training, more recently more volume. 9 runs a…"

"I've run a 3:05 and 3:06 at CIM but my pr 3:01 is at Twin Cities. Great. I'll let you know where i'm going when I figure it out. I was thinking foot hill trail 365 this weekend and depending on the next run maybe the Bosque but I run…"

"There is less oxygen at altitude. O2 constitutes about 21% of the atmosphere independent of altitude however as you go up in elevation, the total amount of atmosphere decreases (partial pressure). In Albuquerque you only have about 82% of the oxygen…"

"There are a great any myths regarding training at altitude. If you look at independent, original research, you will find that there is no proof that that training at altitude is effective or beneficial. Living at altitude, however, does have its…"
