How many miles did you run today? - Page 823

post #12331 of 13142
8.3 miles today.
post #12332 of 13142
3 miles on the "track" tonight. Averaged just under 8 minutes per mile, with each successive mile slightly faster than the one before it. Still pretty warm at 8:30 pm but the sprinklers which were overlapping the north side both cooled me down and helped clean my shoes off from the trail run.

3.3 this morning
post #12334 of 13142

Alright Stylefourm family this week is my 2 yr  anniversary of my first run so I wanted to do something pretty dope. I joined a ultra marathon running team and we took on the Run Across Ga last weekend ( 260 miles). It was a pretty awesome event to say the least and they had a block party for each team after crossing the finish line. Running 3 times a day twice over the course of a weekend really can take it out of you though.

4.8 road miles last night.  Tried out a flatter route but still 400 ft of gain.

 

I may sign up for a 50K in October but need some help figuring out daily nutrition for the added miles in training.  I am currently running 40-45 miles but will crank that up a bit.  What are y'all eating so you don't lose weight while upping the miles?

I'd like to run something by you guys. Tell me if I'm being unreasonable here...

 

 

I'm running a marathon on Sunday.

 

Normal packet pickup is only available on Saturday from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Location is 50 miles round trip from home.

 

Saturday is also the day of the Boulder Ironman 70.3. I live a couple of blocks off of the course. Roads will be closed in the area.

 

Packet pickup is available Sunday morning before the race, for an extra $20.

 

 

My contention is that it is unreasonable to charge athletes an extra $20 (on top of a registration fee of $100 +fees) for the convenience of picking up on race morning. I've never encountered this before... 

 

 

Edit:

 

It just gets worse... The packet pickup on race morning is near the finish line, which is out of my way on race morning. I'm really getting kind of pissed at this organization. Part of me wants to skip the race and tell all of you that you should skip Revel events as well...

I've about doubled my weekly miles (which weren't that much to begin with) and haven't encountered this "problem" yet. The quotes only apply to me as I'd actually like to drop about 10 pounds, and I'm hoping the increased mileage will help.

I am thoroughly unimpressed with the "organization" that runs the Revel Rockies marathon. They apparently changed some rules last week, but only communicated those changes via Facebook and mass email. Their website still has the old information. These buffoons have earned a place on my boycott list (there's only one other company on that list).

5.5 miles on asphalt and cement. Temps in the upper 70s and slightly more humid than usual (what the Midwestern folks would call dry) as there are some thunderstorms moving through.

Sounded like a cool race back when it was mentioned but this sucks man.  Hopefully it all works out.

I don't eat more or less while getting race ready for ultras. Get enough protein, rest, and fluids. Eat when you are hungry but eat healthy. You'll recover quicker and feel better. I'm mostly veggies and sometimes fish all the time. After a race I'll splurge and eat pizza or a burger.

Agreed. That's fck'd up. Most races I've traveled to have no fee on race and most ask to leave pp on race day for those from out of town. Couple races have had no "day of" pick up or extra fee for race day sign up. Good luck.

I'm strongly leaning towards skipping the race on Sunday, and actually enjoying my Saturday. I get to watch a friend of mine who lives at sea level suffer through the Boulder Ironman 70.3 at altitude and in hot weather!

Thanks guys for the pointers.  7 miles of roads last night.

 

I am going to wait to signup and see how some early weeks of training go as the race fee does not increase closer to the race.

post #12344 of 13142
4 miles on roads last night. Much like @jbarwick I was aiming for a flatter route too but still ended up with 400 feet of climbing.

We're heading to DC this weekend and I was really excited for some fast flat runs at sea level (we'll be near the Mall). Unfortunately, with a toddler and lots of family, I don't think I'll get the chance.

3.1 this morning.

Fueco, I've never run a non-local race, so not being able to pick up my packet on race morning has not been an issue. I understand why an organizer would choose not to, but they should at least offer to mail packets to out-of-towners.
