How many miles did you run today? - Page 680

post #10186 of 12853
This morning, temperatures in the upper 50s, clear air, clear blue sky: 5 miles at a 7'45" pace. Really fast for me.

The half foam roller can be useful in a variety of ways. I especially find this technique to help with shin, lower leg pain.

Friday morning: 4 miles; 27'40" This is a VERY good timing for me.
Enjoying the last days of moderate weather. 90 degree temps are in the forecast for next week.

^ I'd say that's a really good time for almost anyone CP, I'd be lucky to finish a 5K quicker than that! I did a leisurely 6 miles this morning, didn't push the pace too hard.

Speed demon over here :slayer:

 

Last night I surprisingly got off early and had time to hit the trails.  Since the loop is at a trailhead, you can go left or right.  Well I followed 2 guys that went left and thought I could hang on until I heard their discussion on how to make a 1:05 half marathon quicker then I backed off because I was breathing too heavy.  But it was a good night and lots of people out running and hiking.

Ha! This is not my normal speed--though I wish it were! On the 4th of July 5K, I ran a plodding 9'+ mile. I am just lucky to be running. (Arthritis in my wretched hip.)

My half is next weekend, and I'm traveling this weekend. Unlikely to be able to run due to some crazy last-minute schedule changes. I'm assuming that there's no point in trying to "make up" for the missed mileage, but I wonder what the impact might be on my race. I could see having more rest as being potentially beneficial as long as I get some easy runs in during the coming week.

You seem to keep up consistent mileage and rest never hurt anyone so I think you are good.  Plus this is usually a taper period where you get to relax a bit.

 

I got in 19.3 miles on the trails today.  It was rainy so I thought the trails would be empty but a few local running stores set up Saturday trail runs which is against park rules so it was a little busy.  I was more concerned with the safety of the newer trail runners than anything else as there are a couple sketchy spots even when it is dry.  As for vertical I think I was somewhere around 3,200' today which made the legs a little tired.

10 miles this morning, first double digit mile run in about 6 months. I wasn't trying to run too fast, but I still ended up with around a 9:24 pace, really good for me at that distance. I'll do the same next Sunday and try to do not a little quicker.

Got in 8.5 miles today with a little different route that usual.  Got yelled at by another runner for announcing myself behind him but I said "on your right" about 10ft behind him.  Usually you pass on the left but he was hogging that side.  He said I didn't give him enough clearance.  Most people around here seem to zone out and are not aware of their surroundings as I am huffing and puffing yet they never hear me.

Ran 5k today and beat my previous PR (22:19) by almost 2 minutes (20:23). Considering I was running 5k in 28 minutes a year ago, it felt great.

 

I usually run 3–4 miles on flat ground and don't push myself too much, but the last month I've been doing a lot of 6–9 mile hilly runs in warm weather. Today was 15 degrees cooler and with the shorter distance I felt fantastic.

7.2 miles on Saturday morning and 14.2 on Sunday. Today was a rest day but the great running weather that we've had lately is still here and I was really tempted to go out for a few miles this morning, but I resisted and went for an easy walk instead.

I agree with jbarwick - I don't think a few extra days of rest will be detrimental, especially this close to the actual event.

7.7 miles with 16 x 400 meter intervals at the track.

8.6 miles this morning.  For some reason my inlaws decided my knees would be bad later in life so they got me some different insoles to try.  They were so thick it felt like I was going to slip out of my shoes and they added what felt like a brick to each shoe.
