How many miles did you run today? - Page 214

post #3196 of 13072
hmmm, before I started running, I played a lot of racquetball and basketball, so I had a decent start and was soon running mileage in the 8:00 - 8:30 range. Sub-8 came with some decent mileage and a few races, once I got acquanited with longer distances and more discomfort. I'm just now hitting sub-7 in my training, and even that's not a sure thing yet. I tried for sub-7 over four miles yesterday and wound up averaging 7:04. Now, it was cold, there was a big headwind on part of the loop, and blah blah blah but still, it's not just there for the taking, just yet.

Today, BTW: 4 miles, kinda tired, pretty cold outside, sore achilles. I went pretty gingerly at the start but picked it up, finished in 30-and-change. Stopped one loop early so I could put gas in the Mrs's jeep.

last night: 9 miles in 58:00. Legs felt great, but the weather was crap. 40 degrees, windy, with intermittent light rain. Probably would have ran longer if not for the rain, but still it was a good run.

today: speedwork at the track - 8 x 1/2mile - 2:40, 2:34, 2:33, 2:35, 2:34, 2:28, 2:34, 2:28. low 40s and windy again today... not the best conditions for a track workout. felt ok, not great but not bad either... havent ran 800s in a long time, so it felt a little strange running at that pace.

5 miles yesterday, sub 9's, which considering my ankle, aint too bad.
the fitness is coming back, slowly.
Once I have the surgery, I am not going to take 12 weeks of sitting around. I think I will have to swim or something....its too hard to earn back the fitness to let it go.

Ran 11 miles with a buddy of mine 10 years younger and a triathelete. Kept up and then some. We did it in about 1:15 minutes.That made my old ass feel pretty good. Though my achillies is pretty sore from a bang I took in my Hockey league's All Star Game. But the Giant League MVP Trophy and Leading Scorer Trophy takes a little of that away. They're going in my classroom right next to last season's MVP Trophy!

Four miles on a local trail. Some good technical parts, some good hills, and some nice shade. It was a good run. My wife came along, and so did the dogs.

Don't even think about time for your first year of running.

My thread contribution: 4 miles at 6am on the marathon course in the dark before volunteering for NYC marathon all day. What a scene. I saw Jared of subway fame running. Along with a guy on two prosthetic legs who looked to be about 3:20 pace. Insane.

This morning, 4 miles in 30 minutes. Temperature was 27. Nothing like a frosty, chilly morning to amp up the pace. With the time change, I can enjoy the sunrise. (Another incentive)

Ran to the top of Mt. Misen on Miyajima island and back down again. Not too far, but the rise was fairly aggressive and the terrain a bit uneven.
