How many miles did you run today? - Page 670

post #10036 of 10383
5.75 miles this morning. Ran without a shirt, so felt a bit ridiculous but also good to soak up the Vitamin D.

Embrace the freedom!  Once it hits the 50s I ditch my shirt for the year.

 

Got in the same 14 miles as last week but going the opposite direction.  Was feeling pumped seeing others running as I finished lap 3 but once I refilled my bottles and started back my legs said another lap was not in the cards.  The heat and cramping got me.

Good inspiration above a la skins running.

6.5 miles today. One of those runs where you feel 20 years younger for no particular reason; was awesome. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

18 yesterday with a majority being moderately technical single track. Lots of power hiking but still finished in under 3.5 hours.

I ran a nice 7KM run this morning averaging a 7:49/KM pace. Yah, I was a slowpoke but this was the first run in almost two months after dealing with a tender left knee that sometimes felt like "runner's knee" and other times an IT band issue.

8 miles this morning, good god it was extremely humid. I weighed myself before and after and I lost 4 pounds in sweat during the run. I started around 7am but I think I'll need to start getting up earlier on Sundays as my runs get longer. The sun was blazing by the time I finished today.

Got in another 14 miles today but the last 2 were brutal.  Should I woken up early again instead of waiting until 9am to start.

Did 13km in 1h20m today. Longest I've ran before, and the pace was slowed a bit by my companion. She cut off at 10 and I was able to do the last 3km at 5:20/km which was really encouraging.

Runkeeper has me doing 15km and 17km in the next few weeks. At what point do you bring water or some kind of fuel?

17.1 trail miles today in new location. Moving to new job (good promotion, worse trails). Trails were more the x-country skiing variety than technical single track. Still some reasonable elevation and mostly grass / rocks. Highest point in WI, it is 49 ft short of being a mountain. Never saw anyone until the look out point at the top. Nice run, good pace, feel pretty good.[

For me it depends on distance, weather, and what I'm training for. I usually run longer races so like to keep being used to carrying a handheld or back pack, so I'll carry one of those if even running 40 minutes just to keep used to them. I bring water for all my runs. I don't usually run less than 40 min and if I don't drink any, well, nothing lost. If it is hot, I'll keep nuun or some electrolyte in the water and carry a couple S-caps for anything over an hour. If running hard for more than 60 min or slow for more than 90, I usually have a gel or stinger chews with me. I carry a gel with me most all times just in case blood sugar drops and need it anyway. Everyone is different on here in what they like or use. I like the std 250 calories per hour for ultra trail runs, but on road it depends on the distance. See what works for you and what keeps you going and feeling good.

Similar too wingin it, I carry water on every run in the summer as the heat gets to me quickly.  On the roads I can run 13.1 miles easy without any calories but once you get onto trails it is a different story.  Since my trails allow me to do laps I can stop at my car and refill my bottles, get some fuel, and start another lap.  Yesterday felt great with probably 125 calories a lap which takes about 45min and I did 3.  Today I did the same 3 laps and only had 200 calories total and felt it in the last lap.

Curious, why do you guys run? I'm not trying to be cheeky, but for me, it's more about burning calories, staying lean, and to some extent being able to indulge in a lot of food.

I never consider consuming calories during a run, since that'd be counterproductive to me; with the reasons above, I'd run fewer miles instead.

Ridiculous… really why? I practically never wear a shirt while running. i don't see the point in having on some extraneous piece of clothing that will just collect sweat and get in my way.

I would say I agree with all of those reasons and add that for me there is a somewhat meditative quality to honing the body's performance and concentrating on breath and rhythm… a good run really clears my head and just makes me feel better overall. With that said, I only did about 3.5 today but it was a beautiful, sunny Sunday afternoon and all the better with a run!

Keeps my mind in a good space. No physical activity = sad jarude. That, plus being an ex-smoker, neglecting cardio my whole life and having my dad come down with some lung issues has got me running. I'm much more partial to lifting, but an elbow injury has kept me out of that, so I have to do something...

I've tried multiple forms of exercise: CrossFit, triathlon, basic gym routine on machines, and random classes at the gym.  I like running the best as it allows you to just be free and in the outdoors.  It allows me to quickly see a new city if I am there for other reasons.  It is just refreshing.

 

Now I will say my weekday runs are a little more stressful as I have a deadline to be done and get ready for work but other than that the weekends are great.  It really took a lot to get out on Sunday for some reason but I am glad I did.  As for the eating more aspect, that is great but some people will run say 3 miles (roughly 300 calories give or take) then think they can take down a whole buffet.  All in moderation I suppose.
