Running a marathon is an extraordinary accomplishment that more and more people are checking off of their bucket lists every year. I have completed a few, but I'm no more special than anyone. In fact, I think I'm just ordinary.

After the passing of his father, Charlie Duffy knew that he needed to do something big. He had all this energy inside. He had done marathons before, but this needed to be bigger. Moreover, the specter of Lake Placid loomed large. It’s a familiar place with an iconic race – a poster of which hung … Continue reading "Podcast #267 – Charlie Duffy" The post Podcast #267 – Charlie Duffy appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

8/6/2019

It was a year in the making – my Ironman Redemption Race from 2018’s DNF at Ironman Lake Placid. The 2019 version would be a longer day than expected, but I made it around and accomplished all of my goals. A lot of you guys tracked me that day and are probably wondering what took … Continue reading "Podcast #265 – 2019 Ironman Lake Placid Recap" The post Podcast #265 – 2019 Ironman Lake Placid Recap appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

Well… we’re off to Ironman Lake Placid. Tapering can be a strange time, and I’m hoping it hasn’t had any adverse effect on my readiness. Unfortunately, I am dealing with a random, spontaneous foot injury. But I’m hoping for the best and I’m pushing forward assuming that I’ll be okay on race day. Today is … Continue reading "Podcast #264 – Ironman Lake Placid Sendoff" The post Podcast #264 – Ironman Lake Placid Sendoff appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

Race day is fast approaching and the tapering continues. Not giving up on strength training, just lightening the load (CONSISTENCY!) Still tinkering with the positioning of my bike saddle, which may not be smart so close to race day. Weird foot pain started Sunday… disappeared Monday… then reappeared again, and even worse today. But we’re … Continue reading "Podcast #262 – Ordinary Daily, July 23, 2019" The post Podcast #262 – Ordinary Daily, July 23, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary...

Less than a week until Ironman Lake Placid. It’s getting really close now, and tapering is driving me a little mad. Angela Fillmore – get out and do that 6k today! We recap Ben Hinton‘s half-marathon this weekend, and look forward to having Denny Krahe on the podcast this week.

Nice to have Ben Hinton back to update us on his Olympic aspirations ahead of his next big race this Sunday. Always a positive outlook, always an encouraging word, I wish Ben the best of luck. He’s been training hard and seemed to have learned a lot over the past few months. As such, I … Continue reading "Podcast #260 – Ordinary Daily With Ben Hinton, July 19, 2019" The post Podcast #260 – Ordinary Daily With Ben Hinton, July 19, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

Coach Scott is one step closer to being an official coach! Tapering continues… with 10 days until Ironman Lake Placid. It is also the 100-day mark until the Marine Corps Marathon – a notice for all of you out there participating in The People’s Marathon this year. Things are tracking well, feeling good, and ready … Continue reading "Podcast #259 – Ordinary Daily, July 18, 2019" The post Podcast #259 – Ordinary Daily, July 18, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

Having a properly thought-out training plan is something that I haven’t always had the past few weeks. Heeding my own advice, I put one together for the next week and a half of tapering. The plan took a while to put together and included great detail. I even made plans beyond training, planning out how … Continue reading "Podcast #258 – Ordinary Daily, July 17, 2019" The post Podcast #258 – Ordinary Daily, July 17, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

Tapering is underway and yesterday was a perfect, productive beginning – upper body strength training, short swim, dealing with Ellie screaming in the pool (which had to burn SOME calories), and a short, easy bike. Things are on track and with 12 days remaining until Ironman Lake Placid, I just have to make sure I … Continue reading "Podcast #257 – Ordinary Daily, July 16, 2019" The post Podcast #257 – Ordinary Daily, July 16, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

And now, we taper. Hope everyone had a great weekend of training. My last weekend before IMLP was pretty successful. Maybe would have liked to get some extra miles in on Saturday (did 12.5) but that was in the range of what I had planned to get done anyway. Sunday’s 65-mile bike ride was a … Continue reading "Podcast #256 – Ordinary Daily, July 15, 2019" The post Podcast #256 – Ordinary Daily, July 15, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

After hearing the story of how Sheila Treleaven, a mother of 3 with a full-time job, somehow is able to fit in enough training to be a professional triathlete, I struggled a bit with my own personal excuses I’ve made over the past few weeks. This morning I saw a couple running in the rain … Continue reading "Podcast #255 – Ordinary Daily, July 12, 2019" The post Podcast #255 – Ordinary Daily, July 12, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

With 17 days remaining until Ironman Lake Placid, my workouts aren’t looking very Ironman-like. At least I got something done yesterday, even though it was late at night and I would have rather been in bed. My problem lately? Setting a routine and sticking to it, without getting sidetracked. Yesterday, I banged out 4+ miles … Continue reading "Podcast #254 – Ordinary Daily, July 11, 2019" The post Podcast #254 – Ordinary Daily, July 11, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.

It’s not often we get a pro-triathlete on the podcast. But, as luck would have it, I ran into one at the start of Ironman Mont-Tremblant a few weeks ago. A little facebook stalking followed by a polite request and whaddya know! We got Sheila Treleaven on the podcast!

Tuesdays are supposed to be boring… Mine started out fairly benign, though my lack of consistency with strength training is evident in the results. Then we dealt with Boston traffic – NIGHTMARE!

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time… with an overload of things to do and tasks to accomplish over the next few weeks, it’s time for me to start nibbling at that elephant.

Don’t mistake my overly-concerned tone for a lack of confidence. For me, it seems natural to overly-analyze as many aspects of a race like Ironman as I can imagine. I want to be prepared for everything, so I think of all that can go wrong and then I tend to discuss it all on the … Continue reading "Podcast #248 – Ordinary Daily, July 3, 2019" The post Podcast #248 – Ordinary Daily, July 3, 2019 appeared first on Ordinary Marathoner.
