Ryan Hall Chicago Marathon Training

Ryan Hall has been gearing up for 2011 Chicago marathon by tweaking his training plan. Having been out run by the Kenyans every time, Ryan Has been studying the Kenyans and he now feels he has the answer to beat them.

“I’m realizing more and more how important it is for me to maintain contact. That’s something I did well at Boston this year, where guys would get away from me,” he said in an interview this summer with a Stanford alumni magazine.

“That’s how I stay in the front, but how do I win the race? That’s a whole different question,” he added. “That’s what I’m starting to address now.”

 

 

2010 Boston Marathon Photos : Pictures

The 2010 Boston Marathon is done and dusted and I have surfed around the web for pictures and photos from the race. With over 500,000 spectators cheering the 20,000 runners I found plenty of good photos.

I watched the marathon via satellite TV and it looked everyone was having a ball “It was just a very exciting day,’’ said race director Guy Morse. “We haven’t had times like this for many years. The weather [55 degrees, mostly sunny] was almost perfect for runners. And there was a crosswind that made it fair.’

The only disapointment was watching Ryan Hall fall behind, I was hoping for a first American victory since 1983.

The Peoples Marathon

I just loved the following battle between the Russian and the Ethiopian.

The Russian Predator

The Ethiopian Prey

At the end the Prey proved to be too fast for the predator!

The Ethiopian Teyba Erkesso won the battle, beating Russian Tatyana Pushkareva, a 24-year-old former ballroom dancer who might be a candidate for “Dancing with the Stars.’’

Tips For Running Hills By Ryan Hall

In timeout magazine American Long distance runner Ryan Hall was asked on how he approaches hills

What’s your strategy for those Boston hills–and downhills?

My strategy for the hills in Boston are to run the same effort level whether I am going up, down or flat, which means I will obviously slow down going up the hills and fly down the back of them. I think that energy management is one of the keys to running a good marathon. The better I can keep it locked in at the right effort level, despite the terrain, the better I will run.
