"crisis" averted, I found my sportband in a drawer at work (?).

 

last night 8.36mi @ 6'51". Temp still in the low 60s at 9pm, this might be the best time of the year for running here.

I never wear a watch or timer when I run in races. I also never really come close to winning ever races so take that for what it's worth. satisfied.gif

Was it the distance or fueling? I usually carry a gel with me. Rarely need it, but on that odd occasion when blood sugar drops or energy level is shot, it comes in handy.

Carry a gel, but back off when your body just isn't feeling it: that's better than getting sick or injured!

I'm pretty sure it was fueling and not distance....I completed 10 and 11 mile runs in the past few weeks with no problems, so I didn't think 12 would give me any trouble. I was running slow on purpose as well, to make sure I could finish the run. I wasn't carrying a gel with me, but like Fueco said, my body was telling me something was definitely wrong, so I just stopped instead of trying to push through it. I had more than a few adult beverages the previous day, so that could be to blame devil.gif I'm going to try again next Sunday, and I think I'll fare much better that time around.

Better news today - finished 6 miles at 9:03 pace, which I think is almost 10 seconds per mile faster than my previous best at 6 miles.

Happy Thanksgiving, all!

3 miles for me - dark, wet and gale force winds. I had fun as you can tell!

4.3 miles today. Bright, dry, but very windy. Good time here too.

Tried a new pair of NB M890 v2 shoes. Pretty nice run in them. Relatively light (9oz) and decent cushion with 8mm drop. Nice for a trainer in short or longer distance.
Also tried the Asics Hyperspeed 5 the other day and sent them back. Liked nothing about them but they did get some very good customer reviews on RW so others may have better runs in them.

I like the v2's with one exception, the extra achilles padding drives my foot into the front of the shoe on hilly runs and causes mass toe issues. I had a pair of the v1s I loved. RE runners world reviews - don't trust them. running times is more reliable source for reviews. The hyperspeeds have sucked since the 3's. The new balance MRC1600 is a great flat in that category. Really Really good shoe.
I am working at a running store these days so I try on everything I can.
The Kinvara/New Balance 880/Air Pegasus are three of the best trainers out right now in my opinion.

Today ran a "10k" turkey trot in 32:51 for second overall. Should have won!!!! Made a move to catch the leader who I thought was in the 10k to draft on an uphill into the wind section of the course, but as I caught him, he smacked me and the ass and turned off for the 5k finish line. Wasted a lot of energy there, then got passed at mile 4.5 and got gapped a bit. Thought I would have a full K to kick to the end, but the course ended at 5.95 miles. My time was more realistically 34 flat. Still very happy with the finish, just wished it was a legit course.

This will be the last race of my season before shutting it down for a bit before Spring Track/Possible Marathon.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING,
Sam

Didn't have any achilles issues, but did feel like my foot was pushed forward a bit. Thin socks for 1/2 size bigger in these.
I'll have to try the 1600's. I have a pr of the 1400's and happy with them. I also have a pair of the MRC5000's. No real thoughts on them but couldn't pass on a pair of 5K racers at 3.1 oz's.
RW = Runners Warehouse, but could see the Runners World reference too. Running times I get the mag but haven't gone to the site to reveiw shoes. Not a big Nike running shoe fan, they never seem to fit right for me.
Congrats on 2nd place in 10k, that's a great time and pace.
