The Take-It-Easy Workout
Attention, overachievers: The key to getting fit is working out smarter, not harder. Here's how to speed up by slowing down. Really. We mean it.

By Holly St. Lifer (Originally published in the October 2011 issue of More. Sent to us by Nicole Blees.)

It seems like the ideal workout: You go on a run and gradually increase your speed until you hit your sweet spot-a challenging pace that makes you pant but not gasp for air. Once there, you work hard to maintain your stride until, 30 minutes later, you lope back into your driveway, exhausted but invigorated. The next day, you do it again.

What do you know about buy generic levitra? Also, think about buy vardenafil. Generally, both men and women suffer from sexual health problems. A common class of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, which include Zoloft, may cause problems in bed. To reduce the risk of unwanted side effects of Kamagra avoid using any other medicines without preliminary discussion with your dispenser. Do not use such remedy without telling your pharmacist if you are pregnant.

I did my first off-road triathlon today at Granite Bay, the Xterra Real Mountain bike triathlon.

The announcer kept saying the lake was 50 degrees but down at the beach, Bill Driscoll said it was officially 48.5.
I swam almost head up to the first buoy because every time my face touched the water, my whole body wanted to be somewhere else. The swim was much better after about 500 yds.

The bike was extremely fun. Massive amounts of mud, some of it so deep and soft I had to walk and the mud was halfway up my calf with the water over my knees. In some places the trail was a flowing stream. Apparently this is a really easy mountain bike course. Since I am not a mountain biker, it took me over 2 hrs to ride 16 miles.
There was a challenged athlete who was having a hard time constantly re-attaching his prosthetic leg to his bike pedal in the thick mud. That guy was inspiring.

This race had a mass swim start at 10:00 AM, the latest start I have ever heard of. So definitely a good race for people who have a hard time getting out of bed in the morning.

Oakland Marathon

In an effort to keep/get people motivated for the season, I thought I'd share my results from the Oakland Marathon (my first ever marathon).

The Oakland Marathon is a wonderful combination of very well run and organized without being huge.  Registration is capped at 1,500 but only 903 people finished this year.  Even with a small number of participants, the city was out in force: the race course was closed to all traffic and cross traffic for 7 hours with police and fire personnel in force manning road blocks.  The course is on city streets, traversing many different neighborhoods.  The first 5 miles are flat to rolling hills, followed by a climb of about 500 feet over 3 miles, leading back to 2 miles of more rolling hills.  From there its a screaming descent of 500 feet over about 1 mile followed by 15 miles of flat running.  There are also about 3,500 people who run a half marathon that day, finishing their run along the same course as the marathon, so it does get a bit thick at the end.  All in all, I think this was a great marathon to run, especially as a first marathon.

I finished in 3:17:10 and placed 10/86 in M40-45 and 50/644 overall.

Bariani Road Race 2011

I did the Bariani Elite 5 road race in Zamora on Sunday. Nice windy day and three 10 mile loops later I came in second after being thoroughly outsprinted by a 21 yr old (he might have been 22). Marianne watched and will attest to the fact that this 40 yr old cow can't sprint.
