My exercising experiences with elevation training masks

As I train and continue to add experiences that might be valuable to other runners who are training for marathons in Tucson, I will write my experiences and reviews about how the run went to my other reviews about races. I will also post my training plan for the Mt. Lemmon Marathon and the races that I will do in preparation.

Training plan: If you’re just starting out, I would suggest running 3 times a week. I would also run a 3 week cycle. The first week of the cycle you train at a specific level. The second week you increase by 10-20%. The third week you scale back to lower than first week’s level. This gives your body time to recuperate and prevents injuries. The first week of your next cycle should be increased by 10-15%. After 3 cycles, reduce you first week pace by 10%. This will work – you just need to be patient.

Hill running is simple: Find a hill – run it to the top (if you can get up there fine – if not – stop where you’re about to collapse) – once up there – walk back down. Do this 10 times and make sure you keep a pace that you can accomplish it 10 times. If you cannot run it – walk up the hill. This will put pressure on your big leg muscles and should bring your body close to lactic acid threshold, walking back down will help your body manage that load and will push it farther and farther as the workouts progress.

Everything depends on your level of fitness. Lance Armstrong said running a marathon was the hardest thing he ever did, I’m just happy to finish one. His sub 3 hour marathon equate to my 1/2 marathon time give or take some minutes. The Basics of running are simple, efficiency of stride, lactic acid threshold, base training, patience and determination.

If there is caring it is a good sign. Saying sorry for past mistakes is a lowering of the elevation training mask exercise of the ego and another good sign. Be humble. It pays in the long run. Check the effort of the significant other. Check to see if it is matching your effort or if it falls far short of your expectations. Any positive emotion you share together is a good sign. Remember the value of a good laugh and get some humor going between you two.

In order to run the Mt. Lemmon Marathon, altitude is a must. With over 6,000 feet of elevation climb, the race is going to be hard on the lungs for the ill prepared. But Tucson does not present many uphill and altitude climbing areas that are safe for runners to run, so I will be attempting runs in different locations and writing reviews for runners who are interested in elevation training mask exercise like myself.

The last plan I had for elevation and hilly runs was to include races into my running plan that may be difficult and increase my speed training. One race is the Kitt Peak Ascent, which is hosted by Blue Pants Racing, the same hosts as the Mt. Lemmon Marathon. This 10 mile race has over 3,000 feet of elevation climb and is all uphill during the evening in June.

Deliberate practice – Deliberate practice is a term coined by K. Anders Ericsson, a psychologist at Florida State University, and refers to practice that incorporates setting goals, developing skills, and correcting mistakes. The effort is as much mental as it is physical.
