How many miles did you run today? - Page 787

post #11791 of 12849

5 miles this morning.  Warm weather was rather odd but at least it's not freezing cold.

13.1mi at 8:35/mi. First double-digit run in a long while. Was a bit of a grind...

9 miles

6 km in 12:15 but I had to take two short breaks so let's say 12:30. It's been really, really hard. The race is on Sunday, one more run tomorrow.

9.3 miles this morning at 4:45 a.m. It was really windy and there were on-and-off rain showers the entire time but it was 66º and I figure it might be about 6 months until I get early morning temps like that again so I wanted to take advantage of it while I could.

The vast majority of my running is done on an empty stomach. I prefer to get up early and get moving as soon as possible. If I am going out for something longer than about 9 miles or so, I might have a slice of toast with peanut butter or jelly and a little bit of juice. Of course, I usually have so much ice cream and beer in me right before I go to bed that I probably still have plenty of calories to burn left in me when I wake up.

However I can understand your need to stop, especially if you are not used to running or working out on an empty stomach.

I got into the habit when I was in Boot Camp and we almost never would go to chow before our PT.

I hate running with food in my belly.

All I can say that I couldn't do it at the pace I want to run at. How old are you if I may ask?

I usually wait 3 hours before running after eating but then, I eat pretty obscene amounts of food.

I'm almost 37.

I am much slower than I was at 18 when I could run 6 minute miles all day, but I can still get to the end of a 5k under 22 minutes if I push hard. My goal for next year is to get one under 20 minutes. It doesn't sound like much of a push but I think at this stage in my life it will be harder to get back under 20 minutes for a 5k than it was for me to get a marathon under 3:40, which I did back in the spring.

4.5 miles on the trails today.  Felt good to stretch the legs.

Set out for a short run this morning but felt pretty good and ended up with about 12 road miles. Legs feeling a little beat up from the harder surface but longest run in a bit.

I also tend to be an empty stomach runner. I run around lunchtime with little more than coffee in my system. On longer days I'll have a little oatmeal but not been one for "loading up" before hitting the trails.

Another 4.5 miles.  Had some friends finish the Pinhoti 100 miler.  After my knee started to hurt me today, I doubt I will ever reach another 50K let alone a 100 miler.  My knee just tracks weird and the 2 physical therapists I saw couldn't tell me why so I'd rather not go too in depth chasing a little pain.

10.1 miles of every type of terrain available, including about 3.5 miles of technical trails. This was also my first 10+ run at altitude.

A fast mile on the treadmill this morning after 30 minutes on the step machine and a pyramid set of dips and pull-ups up to 15.
