How many miles did you run today? - Page 737

post #11041 of 12853
Took yesterday off since I was feeling pretty drained. Long work week, travel, less sleep, etc. The rest was better for me than one extra day of running.

Ran a 4 mile snow shoe race today. Took 4th overall. Was much better than anticipated as temp was negative 1 at start w/ wind chill at neg 15. Most of the race was on single track in the woods, so the wind chill wasn't a factor too often. Pulled the wool neck gaiter up a few times to get some warm air into the lungs, but overall a pretty fun run.

Not that my advice is worth much, but I'd say it makes a difference on the distance you are talking about. On 50K's or longer, I always use downhill's as recovery time. I am a gravity or floating the downhill kind of guy and go as fast as I can without giving much effort. The effort is based on how technical the trail is and how steep. Short steps on the uphill, length of step on downhill based on trail conditions. Any races at half marathon or shorter are just let 'er rip.
I do think core work outs, hill, and speed work strengthen the legs to get you up and down the hills without cramping or giving out.

I got in 3.3 miles on the treadmill yesterday.  Woke up today to go to the gym but realized I had started the coffee pot and couldn't come back to old coffee so I stayed home.

Appreciate the downhill running tips. I think I mainly need to work on slowing down less (if that makes sense) and generally being less paranoid about slipping and/or falling. It's pretty cold and snowy in Denver this week and I haven't decided whether to use the treadmill in the hotel or take a few days off until I'm back home.

I regularly run 2 miles per day. Because doctor said to me I need to run everyday.

7 slow miles this morning. It was awfully cold out there. I'm definitely ready for Florida in a few weeks.

I'm finally getting around to scoping out the course for this Sunday's race... I really like the course profile!

 


 

 

The weather looks like it should be perfect as well!
