Training Tracking - LJHM '09

Alright. So, I finally, "formally" registered to run the 2009 La Jolla Half Marathon (LJHM).
As I did for my first half marathon (the carlsbad half), I plan to track all my training run data for this one as well. The only difference, instead of creating new posts, every time I update the data (which is typically at the end of every week). I will just keep one blog post and keep updating it and bumping up the date, to keep bringing it back up.

As for the Training Plan, I am going to try to change things up a little. I will still be running 3 times a week(+weekend) (I might run a "warm-up" mile on other days, but significant miles will be only 3 times a week), but each run will be "special".
What do I mean by that? Well...

1. The weekend run will be long and I will not drop below 8milers (preferably stay 10mi and above) and definitely not restart from 4-5mi runs like I did the first time around.

2. Since all the weekend runs will be extra long, the Tue run will have to be a sort-of recovery run (I say "sort-of", because, I am hoping my body should be conditioned to not be as hammered after a 10mi run as I used to be in the past). For that reason, the Tue run will be a trail run (easier on the legs) and will range from 2-6miles, depending on how badly hammered the legs are.

3. Thurdays run will alternate(one Thu this, one Thu that) between hill training (to conquer that big torrey pines hill) and Interval Training or Fartleks.

For #1: The routes will vary, since I run with a running group on the weekends.
For #2: http://www.mapmyrun.com/run/united-states/ca/san-diego/900805585783
For #3: For hill training: http://www.mapmyrun.com/run/united-states/ca/san-diego/197949449764; for fartleks: Either UCSD tracks or treadmill.

Alright, so, here we go, again!

However, the banking Internet sector has exploded in the past five years.

With the popularity of the Internet and the power it gives people to take control of their lives, many traditional banks have created banking Internet web pages where customers could transfer money, set up bill payments recurring or otherwise, quickly check items that have cleared, and many other functions that can be accessed 24 hours per day 7 days a week.

This is the truest form of banking Internet simply because these banks only exist online.

This is amazing and makes traveling a lot less stressful as well because with banking Internet you always know where your account stands.
[url=http://pcinternetbanking.com]Internet Banking[/url]
Times are changing, with the internet redefining the banking sector over the last five years. Do not be confused as it continues to develop, the many names it goes by all mean the same thing electronic, online and PC banking are all just synonyms traditional banking services provided through a secure internet portal.

Traditional banks have monitored the popularity and growth of the internet, and realising customers wanted greater control of their affairs, have created their own internet banking web sites.

The purest form on online banking is the virtual bank, where the only place they exist is in cyberspace.

Paying bills, transferring funds and just plain monitoring your account are all possible with minimal stress whether you are ravelling, holidaying or working anywhere in the world.

The second half was a completely different story; the French team started on fire, producing great opportunities. The first came at minute 52 when Lisandro made a 25-yard shot that tested Madrid’s goalkeeper, Iker Casillas. Casillas was clearly starting to feel the pressure produced by the French team. [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]real madrid football club[/url] Real Madrid maintains their fight for the title of the Spanish League after beating Real Zaragoza in an anguishing match, 2-1 this past Saturday. Real Zaragoza, which played the second half with ten players due to the expulsion of the Italian midfielder, Matteo Contini, were close to making a draw. However, a great goal from Kaka at minute 82 gave the Meringues the victory and moved them closer to Barcelona in the top spot by one point. Barcelona also took a victory after beating Xerez 3-1, leading with 87 points.

Higuain, recently recovered from his injury, exhibited his great talent as always and played for several minutes in the game. In the final minutes of the match, the player took a last opportunity at minute 90 and sealed his team’s victory with a third goal, his 12th of the season. The point puts Higuain three goals ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo, who was serving the second of his two-match outlaw. With this last play, Real Madrid ended the game with a final scoring of 3-0. [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]kaka[/url] Real Madrid also boasted a great game the next day against Villareal, winning 2-0. Villareal’s players and coach were not especially happy with decisions by the referee during the game, but the team stood together. They are still seeking their first victory of the season.
