How many miles did you run today? - Page 753

post #11281 of 12848
20 miles today. Harder than I thought it would be at an easy pace. Warming up outside.

Easy 9 today after 6 yesterday. I'm definitely not recovered from the marathon, but it's great to be back in training mode!

12.1 @ 7:38/mi pace. First marathon in sight. Weird to me that 12mi has become a not so long run after these months of training.

4.5 trail miles yesterday in the heat and humidity.  I forgot how it was training in this heat...

4.5 miles on the trails yesterday.  A lot more enjoyable than Saturday.

Long time, no post...
 
Back at the end of last year, I discovered I had a stress fracture in the arch of my right foot, and then later another in my left foot. And then my left knee ligaments, which have always been a problem since I used to play football (soccer to most of you...), started acting up again.
 
Short version: I stopped running for 4 months. At first it was to rest and recover, but then my wife and son were away in Japan for two months and it was winter and I was a bit depressed, and it took me ages to get out of the not-running phase.
 
I've been cycling as normal most of this time, but this weekend I finally got out for my first proper runs since December. a 6.5k and a slightly over-ambitious 14.5k. Anyway, my knee is still knackered and that's not ever going to change, but everything else felt fine. However, I've put on about 3kg in the last few months, and so I'm far from racing shape and most of my previous plans for this year (local race series, half-ironman and marathons) will have to be put on hold while I get fit again. So the rest of this year is going to be dedicated to that. And then I'll think about my goals for next year.
 
Anyway, it's good to be getting out again.

3.1 this morning, slower

Got in 9 miles pretty late (for me) yesterday and followed it up with 10 more today at lunch. A few hours later and I'm still feeling more wrecked than usual... Crazy how much of a difference 5 or 6 hours of recovery time can make.

I remember during marathon training I had to fit in some night then next morning runs and the morning was terrible.  Nothing really productive.  Usually takes 24hrs to feel better for me.

 

As for me, 2 miles before weights.  Mornings have been harder than usual the past 3-4 weeks.  I am just so tired.
