How many miles did you run today? - Page 699

post #10471 of 10485

4.5 miles on the trail last night.  This weekend will be some hiking on Saturday and maybe a quick 8 miles Sunday.  Next week will be maybe 2 shakedown low mile days before my race next weekend.

This morning, 8 miles. Temperature, 42 degrees. No wind, no problem. I wore gloves. As long as my hands are warm, I'm fine.

For the entire week, Michigan has had ideal, perfect weather: cool mornings, clear blue skies, moderate afternoon temperatures. I wish this would last forever.

5k cross-country race today - harder and hotter than I was expecting. I didn't get anywhere near the 19 minutes I was aiming for - 20.27 in the end - but I was 3rd, and 1st in my age group, so no-one was running road-race times. Not bad considering my training for this has largely consisted of not running much and drinking too much beer.

Got in something like 6.5 miles today followed by washing/waxing our cars.  Tomorrow will be a hike in the morning since I have the day off :)

6 miles this morning. I finally found a hill near my place, which is just an overpass over a road on the trail I've been running, but it is pretty steep. I ran over that a few times during my run, and it was tough since I'm not used to hills, but I'm excited to start doing it more to build up my endurance.

13.2 miles yesterday in a half marathon (thankfully they didn't charge me more for that tenth of a mile) in 1:42:54. I missed a PR by 2.5 minutes, but I'm very happy with my time considering I ran an awful marathon the previous weekend and had a bad cold all week leading up to the half. The course also had some horrendous hills along the second half of the route but I kept my pace from falling. I just now looked at my splits and realized that I also ran miles 2 through 5 below 6:40/minutes. I don't know when the last time I kept that pace up for that long was.

I believe Halifax is near the top of the list of "bars per capita" in large cities. A friend and I keep trying to make it out there for the Halifax Pop Explosion and 2015 looks like the year it might finally happen. The brother of another friend goes to college out there and has no desire to move back to the U.S. afterwards. I've heard a lot of great things about that city.

Got in a 2.5 mile hike this morning....loved the slow pace.  Legs feeling good for this weekend though yesterday's effort was only 1/5th the distance and had some slight soreness yesterday.  Finishing isn't an issue...it's my goal that may go down.

Got in 6.8 this morning before dropping my boys off at school. New wheels: Adidas Supernova Glide 6. After Saturday's pounding, I decided to get some more cushioning for my long runs. They felt great this morning. I've never run in Adidas before, but these felt better than the Asics and Brooks in the same style.

Got to say that I'm very surprised to find that I'm quite a bit faster than you over this distance given the intimidatingly large number of miles you put in...

Sheeeit. I'd give my left nut to run 4 miles at 6:40, let alone as part of a half.

5.2 miles in a steady mist this morning. It wasn't unpleasant.

I am not built for speed. I am short and have stubby German sausage legs. Even when I was in the Marines, had just gotten out of boot camp, was 30 pounds and 18 years lighter, the best I could get my 3 mile time down to was about 20 minutes (I might actually be able to break down below 19 now). Sometimes I worry that my wife will want to take up running. She's tall(er than me anyway) and thin and has long legs and I'm quite confident that she would smoke me in a 5k pretty easily with little to no training.

Plus, I eat A LOT of junk food. I think my blood type is probably "Frappuccino" by now.

I'm pretty damn short too (5' 5"), but it's my upper body that's proportionally shorter, so I guess I have the slight advantage in terms of speed there. It's going uphill where I do particularly well, mountains especially, but unfortunately I live in Ontario where there are barely any hills let alone any mountains. My wife is almost ideologically opposed to sport so no chance of her taking up running!
