Just dumb luck (I haven't been running every day), I ran 6 miles in about an hour this morning. Wanted to get a good one in while the weather hold out--it was in the low-mid 60s with light humidity this morning. Perfect!
I don't like spending much time on exercising because there are other things that I prefer doing. My solution has been to run for 35 minutes 4 times per week. I slowly ratchet up the number of city blocks I run so that as I get better at running, I still run for 35 minutes but increase distance. I don't understand the folks who run for 1+ hour(s).
Zero today. The sprints this week plus the heat really burned me out. I crosstrained on the elliptical instead, then did martial arts drills and lifted. I really find it hard, emotionally, to not run at all, but force myself to do it because I know I need a solid two days recovery time (instead of my customary one) once every month or so.
your shoes may be worn out (300-500 miles is the recommendation for a running shoe before they have lost most of the shock absorption).

... wait, maybe it's time to stop procrastinating on getting new shoes...
I did 3 miles this morning and, in light of this thread, wasn't impressed with the shock absorption (or what's left of it) them shoes. So I went out and bought a pair of Asics GT-2120, marked down to ~$24 and change after tax at the local DSW.

Wow, those are the shoes that I wear! I really like them. I find them to be the best shoe for my weight and stride. They provide support, but are not overly constrictive, and decently cushioned, but are at the same time are relatively light. I'd say that for a mild overprotonator like me, they are nearly ideal. I'm on my... 3rd pair, I think.
i dont get it...some days i can run 3-4 miles straight no problem, and then there are nights when i cannot even bear out a full 1.5 miles.
i like brisk walking instead. i look like one of those middle-aged women in sweats briskly walking in groups conversing while doing it in the morning at the park. i just dont swing my arms as much as they do.
Did 7+ on Sunday morning in a little over an hour. Took a walk break toward the end; the humidity was deadly. Little sore today. Also registered for the Baltimore half marathon in the fall.
I'm intrigued by the wrist GPS units. Are they really bulky? Any recs other than the garmin 205?
i think these things are kinda absurd (a watch that stops and starts plus www.gmap-pedometer.com are more than sufficient); but, garmin seems to be the brand of choice for these. i think maybe polar? was favored at one point as well...but i haven't heard anything about them in a while.
