How many miles did you run today? - Page 711

post #10651 of 12859
wow.. some distances going on here! I put in a standard 4 mile "keep me in shape" run. Nothing stressful, but it feels good to have a fitness level that can knock out multiple miles without any real exertion... keeping the blood pumping. smile.gif

17.75 miles this morning for the Marine Corps Birthday and my own little Semper Fidelis March.

3.1 this morning. First run since NYC, and everything is sore. smile.gif

Got in 11 miles yesterday morning. It was a nice scenic run along the Courtney Campbell Causeway in Tampa, with a bridge right in the middle to help break up the monotony of a long, straight run with no turns.

Maybe 3 miles this morning.  Felt great!

Got in about 6.3 miles at a 7:58 pace. Central Park was empty this morning, amazing the drop off post marathon.

6.1 this morning. Starting to get a little chilly at 5am (for FL anyway), might need to start getting some more cold weather running gear.

Got in 4.6 miles this morning.  Was in the 30s so I had my tights, long sleeve tech T, some gloves, and my buff headband.  Was a little warm towards the end but the only thing I will give up on is my sleeves.  My hands and head get cold quickly.

Since we're talking about cold-weather gear... Knowing that I would likely walk a good portion of NYC (and remembering how cold I was in shorts and a singlet during the last three miles last year), I planned to wear tights, long-sleeve shirt, the singlet from the charity, and running gloves for the start and later. When we got the wind advisory e-mail late on Saturday, I decided to add a windproof vest between my T and singlet. I also had a knit cap and big gloves over my running hat and gloves for the wait in the start village/corral, but I ended up keeping the knit cap for the whole distance. I never took off the running gloves, and I used the big gloves intermittently throughout, tucking them into the Spibelt when I wasn't wearing them.

tl;dr: It was cold and windy in NYC, and I was happy with the layers I wore.

Strangely, it has actually been warmer here in Ontario this week than it was at the end of October...


Went out to do hill circuits with my club last night: 5 x 1000 and 3 x 800 (without the steepest part) at the beginning, middle and end, for a total of just under 7.5k. Also ran to and from the venue, so that's another 4.5k+. So 12k altogether. The coach made me run with the fast group because I'm not as fast as I should be, I guess. I hung off the back most of the time but I made it. And hills. Did I mention the hills? They hurt. Will be doing this session every week (when I'm here) from now on.

I need to find people to run with.

IME, other people, and especially a club with some structured runs / coaching, are essential to running harder than you think you can and getting fitter and faster.

Agreed. I get a lot out of running with my much faster friend, but that's an infrequent occurrence.
