How many miles did you run today? - Page 678

post #10156 of 10571

Got 10.9 miles @ 7:28/mi pace this morning on flat ground in Ohio.  Ran past 3 groups of women (10-12 each group) this morning which I thought was a little off but maybe some sort of safety thing?

That's nice pace, jb.

First time wearing my Garmin in 6 or 7 months because I wanted to run for time rather than distance today. Goal was to finish 24 miles in 5 hours.

 

Pretty happy with the results considering I rolled my ankle pretty hard around mile 12 and took a 10 minute break at the turn around to give it some attention. Nothing too serious but it'll be a bit tender for a day or two.

31.2 miles today. Paced a friend in his first 50K.

9 miles this morning, got up before the sun got too hot so it was a great run.

Looks like some good mileage this weekend!  I got in 5 miles this morning since I took yesterday off.  The air was heavy!

I had 5 miles this morning and then a bunch of 20 second sprints. It was absolutely pouring on me the entire time I was out there. I don't mind the rain but it does sort of depress me when I look at the weather radar before I start running and the only place it's raining in about a 200 mile radius is my neighborhood. Sometimes, Mother Nature is a jerk.

I've never been out to that part of country but the elevation profile for that 50k looks much more challenging than I would have expected.

5 miles. Achilles seems okay.

Possibly interesting to @Fueco (and you other ultra athletes out there)

To summarise, these results suggest that (i) women will be able to narrow the gender gap in cycling speed in the near future in an ultra-endurance cycling race such as the "Furnace Creek 508" due to the linear decrease in gender difference and (ii) the maturity of these athletes has changed during the last three decades where winning performers become older and faster across years.

In other news, my upcoming 50k was cancelled due to permitting.

 

I'm a little disappointed but there was no guarantee that my ankle would be fully healed in time so I'm not completely heartbroken.

 

My "taper week" shall henceforth be known as"lazy pizza week" :hide:

blah, I thumbed "lazy pizza week" not the cancellation of your race.

Yea, there are a couple short steep hills and one ass kicker a bit over a mile at around 22 miles or so into things. It really is a great course and set up nicely.

That sucks. You had some good training and elevation runs going on. You could find one in early to mid Sept and redo the last 6-8 weeks of your training plan. Lots of ultras to choose from in that month.

8.8 miles this morning with 10 half mile intervals mixed in there.

Blahspam - Sad to hear your 50K was cancelled.  

 

Got in 8.5 miles this morning.  Felt pretty good this morning keeping the pace up.

I'm racing Bulldog 50k in late August so the cancellation gives me more time to prepare for that one I guess.
