How many miles did you run today? - Page 744

post #11146 of 12847
10.8 miles w/ tempo intervals.
2 mile warm-up, (2 x 2.5 miles @ 10K pace w/ 3.5 min recovery jog), (3 x 200m x sub 5k pace w 200m jog), and 2.25 mile cool down.

Figured I'd get back to the start / aid station (figure 8 course), rest up, then head out but it took too long for things to feel right and I missed the cut-off. 

In retrospect, I wish I had dropped down to the 50k and continued... but that decision had to be made at mile 19 and, for whatever reason, I decided against it. Live and learn.

A DNF is tough to swallow but another race is right around the corner so I'll have a chance to redeem myself smile.gif

Bet you'll be staying away from that Chipotle next time. I'm the typical bland pasta type light meal the night before. I would bet if you were running it again, you still wouldn't drop to the 50K. Dropping would feel like a DNF in the 50M anyway. Would have been a tough slog for another 9 miles anyway. Time to forget about that one and get ready for the next one. What's coming up?

0 miles this morning and 2 cookies.

48 is shorts and t-shirt weather. Should be great for the trails. I know you mentioned you're around Nashville, but Chattanooga was just featured in Trail Runner Dirt Mag as an awesome trail town w/ some really nice courses and races. Ever been to any of them?

My one 50K was in Chattanooga but I haven't been back to run around as it is 2-3hrs away.  Talking with some guys at the local running shop who used to live there said there are tons of trails right off the interstate for quite a while.  Seems pretty endless to me and I think it hooks up with the AT at some point.  They have a good culture in that city that supports the outdoors as they now have an Ironman branded race there as well as some other events.  If my wife was more of the outdoors type, I could see us trying to move there as we have no family in Nashville keeping us from moving.

 

And 4.6 miles outside.  Sitting for the CPA test so as I ran I was thinking through different accounting problems and almost missed a few turns.

No doubt. Chipotle isn't even that good but pretty convenient and calorie dense... but I'll likely avoid it in the future in favor of something a little more bland and homemade :). I think you're right regarding the dropping down. Initially I was thinking a lesser finish would be better than a DNF but I'd likely be equally disappointed in myself and probably not worth putting my body through that and spending more time in recovery.

 

Next race is only a couple weeks away. Leona Divide 50M. I completed this one last year and had a great time (48 miles of gorgeous PCT single track). Hopefully the weather cools a bit before the race... that one can get into the 90s on a warm year.

 

Last few days had runs of 8, 5, and 10 miles. Mid 90s forecast for tomorrow... guess I'm about to find out how ready I am for some heat :)

3 miles in Golden Gate Park this afternoon while my son was at soccer practice. Got in a couple of sub-8' pace 1/4-mile sprints (?) during the last mile. Felt good to open it up a bit.

2KM, fuck this mile bullshit, in 09:30.

Trying to run faster, not further.

15.5 miles today. Fast finish long run. 9 miles @ 8:20 pace, 6.3 @ 7:40, .2 jog/walk cool down.
Felt great and had a good run. Starting to feel in good shape for some long runs.

I'm returning to running soon after a hiatus since the fall courtesy left leg IT Band and nagging runner's knee from last Summer. Spent the winter in the gym lifting and paying extra attention to the legs with squats, Romanian Split deadlifts and lunges to build leg strength. The pain has been gone for months now, should I give say 5K/ 3 mile gentle run a shot in the near future? My game plan is to build slowly if all goes well.

I'm about to try the same thing in a few weeks. I had a nagging ankle injury that didn't seem to go away, and after not running for around the last 2-3 months, it's finally starting to feel a little bit better. I think in less than a month I'll be ready to get back out there. I've been lifting a lot of weights to try and strengthen back up, and I plan on starting out really slow, like only one or two miles for my first run and increasing mileage very slowly from there.

A gentle run shouldn't hurt anything.

3.3 for me this morning
post #11160 of 12847

Got in 2 miles before weights yesterday.  Going to try the trails this afternoon but I assume they will be packed.
