How many miles did you run today? - Page 722

4.5 miles on the trails.  Muddy but a lot of fun!

6.2 miles.

And people were whining about mid 30s to low 40s here this morning!

Back on the wagon after slacking for the last few months (could make excuses but best summed up as laziness).

Got drunk and agreed to do a moderately tough 50k in mid Feb. Pretty sure I'm going to be ill prepared but that's just how it goes sometimes.

Got in 14 mostly flat miles today which is my longest run in quite some time.

As for 2015 goals...
Finish at least 6 ultras (with at least one being a 100k or longer).
Crew and pace Badwater if my friend gets in.
Complain less (about tired legs, soreness, heat, cold, etcets)

8 good miles today in great running weather - overcast, breezy, low 60s. Finished with a 8:46 per mile pace, 2nd fastest ever for me at this distance.

Are there any running websites that you guys would suggest checking out? I never did track in high school and never really learned the basics (?). I've just been doing what feels "natural" for me. I'm not 100% sure what my pronation is (I think I'm neutral) and I'm not sure if my running shoes (Asics Gel Kayano 17) make my form better or worse. I normally run on a [woodway] treadmill at college daily (7 miles @ 7 mph) while watching videos on my phone. When I came home for winter break I switched to running outside, and found that it was a lot harder for me. I had to go slower and take shorter runs because I got tired so much easily. I've been running outside in my neighborhood/park (2.6 miles @ ~6.3 mph/~24 mins) almost every day for the last two weeks, but my calves (left more so than my right) always limit me while running. I don't get out of breath, but my left calf starts hurting so I have to take breaks more and more often the longer I run. It doesn’t hurt when I'm not running so I'm not sure if it’s just sore, or if its because I place a lot more of my weight on my left leg. I had knee surgery in both knees, but my left knee surgery was more recent (4 years ago). I used to run at different speeds and take short walking breaks, but I’m trying to keep a steady pace throughout my run without any breaks now. Do you guys have any tips? Last 2 pages have been really inspirational for me. Thank you!

A would try to find a good running store in your town to get a fit for some shoes.  I have found the best stores have employees look at your feet while you walk AND allow you to return shoes if they are not working out for you.  A lot of stores look at your feet while you walk but don't allow you to return shoes if they are not working out.  I have put 20-30 miles on a pair and they took them back.

 

As for running websites, "Let's Run" message board is pretty tough to figure out and may not be the best help.  Maybe Competitor Running?  They seem to have a lot of crap at times but could be helpful.

 

Lastly, running outside is harder due to the surface and weather.  Sounds like the surface could be sloped to one side causing undue stress on your left calf.  Very small changes can cause problems quickly.  Try to change things up a little and see if things clear up.  Running can be a process of adjusting small things to see what the root cause is.

 

Best of luck!

6.7 miles today

7.5 snowy trail miles. Half somewhat trampled and half breaking trail. Good solid run.
post #10824 of 12841
15 flat miles at a 9:16 pace. Good times on the Bay Trail!
post #10825 of 12841

20 trail miles today with about 3k elevation. Ran out of steam with 1.5 to go but willed myself to finish strong (the fact that it was mostly downhill didn't hurt either).

Got in 5 miles yesterday on the road.  Knee wasn't feeling great but will get a 10 day rest when I travel in 2 weeks.

14.2 miles today, longest run ever for me but I disappointingly struggled after mile 8. I still finished but my pace was almost 10 minutes per mile. It was really humid out today so I'm sure that had something to do with it.

Another 4 miles today but on the treadmill.

post #10829 of 12841
2 miles. First run since November, and it felt like it. I'm basically starting over...
post #10830 of 12841

8 miles today. Felt really good for the last two miles or despite soreness.
