I knew I was only going to run 30 minutes today (which I did)... there was no way anyone could catch up to my time (or lack thereof).

but seriously, shouldn't IronJules and/or Krull win since they actually exercised while they were running?

Yes, thank you.  I did run every day in December for a minimum for 45 minutes each session. I definitely feel getting older.  I was getting soreer and sorer thoughout the month.   I wanted to come this morning to the loop the lake but I am doing the first annual half marthon in Allen and wasn't up for a loop the day before.

"exercised while running" = i wore ankle weights and carried 2 lb dumbbells for every run.

stephen's cross-training notwithstanding (maybe he'll carry svelte whitman next year), one of the major physiological gains you can make is allowing your body to adapt to this change (improvement) in frequency.  This is why I often say some form of "it's not what you CAN do, it's what you SHOULD do"--because improving fitness, and therefore performance, is not about doing the work, it's about ABSORBING it.  So when i hear about someone getting "sorer and sorer" or being overly fatigued or having unusual muscle tightness or weakness, this is the body saying "hold it, i need to do less for a while so i can get stronger and make you more resilient and better."  It never pays to ignore these messages.  Sometimes active recovery means reducing workout duration, sometimes it means a day or more off.  Less is more is true in endurance sports, like it or not.

Hi guys!  I realize I'm not a team member, but I figured I could still use the log.  In case you were wondering, I am doing the absolute minimum possible... but I'm still doing it!

jeremy--learning to do the minimum duration is a key to success with frequency.  it is also possible to work on improving your turnover during this time of increased frequency, since the duration is not fatiguing in and of itself.
