How many miles did you run today? - Page 725

post #10861 of 13146

Got in 4 miles today after taking yesterday off.  Started doing 100 body weight squats and I probably should have eased into 100.  My legs were in pain for 3 days after the first try.

My plans to run this morning were derailed when the plumber working on our remodel informed me that the drains would be disconnected by the time I got back home to shower. Maybe I can sneak in a lunch run...

14 rainy and muddy trail miles this morning. Had a couple near falls but managed to stay on my feet (and finally got to take my new rain jacket for a test drive).


Lots of runners out training for the Sean O'Brian ultra really helped it feel less lonely out there today.

3.1 miles yesterday on T-mill, 3.5 miles today in a snowshoe race (long 5k). Was negative 1 at start but a pretty good time. Had good clothing for weather.
Tough age group (40-49), I took 5th place overall, but 3rd in AG. First snowshoe race.

That looks awesome...don't know if I'm quite hardcore enough for something like that yet, haha. I would need to do a lot more training on off-road trails. The tail I run on that's near my house now is paved the whole way.

Did a nice 6.5 miles this morning with hill repeats. First time doing hills consistently like that, but I felt really good and still managed to finish my run under 9 min per mile.

Got in 5.6 miles today at ~9:00min/mi pace and my leg felt great.

9.4! Did the race this morning, running for a mile then walking for a minute. The last mile was hard, but it worked surprisingly well. Finished with a 10-ish overall pace.

This bodes well for getting back on track with my training.

7.2 very snowy miles this morning. We had got a few inches of powdery snow on Friday and then 3+" more of heavier stuff overnight and this morning and it was still coming down a bit for most of my run. It was absolutely quiet and peaceful out when I started out around 5:00 a.m. I ran to the campus of a large local private school and it looked like I was the first person to hit most of those trails.

I came home and finished up with about 30 minutes of cross training with my least-favorite piece of winter exercise gear.

Don't you snow runners worry about twisting your ankle on obscured objects?

When it's snow I stick to routes that I know very well. I've learned to run in the street instead of on sidewalks where I am more likely to trip on a raised piece of sidewalk or hidden newspaper, tree limb, etc. The biggest danger on the roads is new but hidden potholes (a very real danger Michigan winters) or a big chunk of frozen snow/ice that can feel as hard as a rock when you kick it. I run early enough in the mornings that I don't see many cars so I'll often run right in the middle of the road where obstacles are minimal. Those big frozen chunks of snow/ice are the worst things I usually come across.

When I get into the woods or on a trail, even if it's one that is usually pretty clear of obstacles, I slow waaaaaaaaay down, especially once the snow gets to be about 4" or more. Today for instance I was running about 11 minute miles where my normal pace that time of day is closer to about 8:25 minute miles.

Decided to measure my 8 mile loop today and turns out to be a bit over 8.5 miles. 


Pushed the pace today and finished in 1:05 (just under 8:00/mile and almost 1:00/mile faster than my usual)

post #10875 of 13146

I ran 8 miles but I was knackered for the last mile so i slowed the pace down :(
