How many miles did you run today? - Page 697

post #10441 of 12862

The 4.5 mile trail run was nice last night as I got to pick the brain of a guy who has ran the race I am running.  Out of town again this weekend and the only hills I will be able to run are on a treadmill :(

If no other options for hills / elevation, do 90 - 120 second intervals on what ever incline you can find. Not the same as running long hills but will be a reasonable alternative. Warm up w/ a few miles, intervals, then a few miles of cool down.

Thanks for the input!  Got in 4 miles then ten 120 sec intervals with a cool down walk.  Nice to get in a workout before everyone else wakes up.

Haven't run for a month. Won't be running the next 6-12 weeks. frown.gif But I've almost quit smoking 18 months. smile.gif

Moderately-paced 14.65km (just under 9 miles) today, My favourite regular route because it goes past a field of llamas!

12.6. Was supposed to be 13 with 11 at marathon race pace. With about 2 to go, just completely ran out of gas. I was able to pick it back up for about a half-mile at the end, but that just meant I was completely drained and had to stop. This training cycle has been feast or famine for me...

26.2 in the Air Force Marathon yesterday. I have the MCM coming up in about 5 weeks so I decided to lay back on this one. I was shooting for 4 hours but ended up at 4:17 and change. I went out way too fast from the start and at the halfway point I was on pace for about 3:30. I slowed myself down but then started to feel ill and by the end I was walking every other mile between 20 and 25. After the race I jumped in the Jeep and made the 4.5 hour drive home and went straight to bed after a shower. I woke up at dinner time with no voice, a throat that felt like fire, and a stuffed up nose. I've been rehydrating today with copious amounts of chicken soup and am starting to feel a little bit better.

My legs feel fine today so that's always good. I'd like to get out for few miles tomorrow to keep limber as I have a half marathon a week from today and it's one of my favorites so I want to have a good one.

FWIW, Dayton, Ohio is much hillier than I realized and the AFMarathon was much more scenic than I was expecting. The humidity was a killer early but once the sun came out so did a stiff breeze and that helped take away some On my away some of the moisture in the air.

Congrats on the finish MP. Not all the races go as planned but this was your warm up anyway. Be careful w/ getting back on the road too quickly. 2 days after a tough marathon while sick isn't going to do you much good. You may want to consider a pretty slow pace w/ a short run.

4.6 yesterday, first day back at it after some time off. I still have about 4 months until my half marathon, so plenty of time to get in shape for that one.

MP, you might even consider the elliptical or a bike ride just to get blood flowing through those muscles with little strain on the connective tissue.

I woke up around 4:30 a.m. and couldn't get back to sleep (a 4 hour nap the day before probably helped that) but just didn't feel like running so I ended up going for a brisk walk into downtown for a couple donuts and some coffee and then back home. I considered going to the gym to use the bikes or step machine but the weather was so cool and crisp I wanted to be outside.

FWIW, when I'm old and retired, I'll probably be the old guy in the neighborhood who gets up around 5:00 a.m. everyday to do his yardwork and clean the gutters.

9.1, including 5 at LT. Was supposed to be 7 at LT, but I couldn't do it. My head was throbbing, and I felt like I might hurl.
