How many miles did you run today? - Page 563

post #8431 of 12849
Saturday morning I ran in a 10 mile race in a town about 30 minutes to the west of me. I had never run in that area before and I don't think I had ever been to the little downtown there. I don't know how they managed to find the route for the 10 miles, but somehow it seemed like it was uphill the entire way. I finished in an hour 20 minutes and some odd seconds. It was right on the pace that I wanted. Not the fastest for sure but it was just a bit faster than my marathon pace. I wanted to sprint the final 5k or so but I was so beat from the unexpected hills at the start that I threw that plan out the window pretty soon into the race.

I took Sunday off and planned for 5 miles this morning but it was absolutely pouring out when I got up today so I read for an hour and then when the rain cleared for a few minutes I did a mile and a half sprint through my neighborhood.

5.6 this morning in GGP. Perfect running weather: 59 degrees, overcast, and a nice breeze off the ocean.

Was the race in Northville? The downtown area is very nice. I think Mike Babcock lives in Northville.

Not exactly running, but I did hike 14 miles this past weekend. Went up and down Mt. Greylock in Massachusetts - 3500 feet, highest mountain in the state. Extremely strenuous trail, but very rewarding at the finish.

Ran the Brooklyn Navy Yards Crit 5k race in 17:42 Saturday Night
12.57 miles in Central Park on Sunday in 1:30:18

Nice 5K time. What are you ramping up for with all the mileage? 40 miles over the weekend is a tough weekend on the legs.

I'm getting ready to run the Vermont 100 at the end of July. It's about 7 weeks out so my peak mileage comes in the next 3 weekends or so.

It was indeed the Kona Run in Northville. One summer in high school (nearly 20 years ago) I used to spend a lot of time at a horse farm a few miles to the west of there and had totally forgotten how rolling that area was. There are some hills near me in Bloomfield Hills and West Bloomfield (if you know where to look for them) and I often run out in Rochester and Oakland Township but these areas overall are basically flat with a few big climbs thrown in at random. I was unprepared for the constant climb out in that area. I'll have to get out there again soon for another run.

Thought so with that kind of long run and then mileage on sore legs next day. I think you mentioned that you were running that 100 in an earlier post, sorry, I forgot.
Good luck with training and race. Awesome to be running it.

9.7 miles this morning at an 8 minute 30 second pace and then 5.7 miles after work at 7 minutes 50 seconds.

It's not often I get to run in the afternoon so I take advantage of it every chance I get, even after an early morning run. I actually like the two-a-day workouts like this when I get the opportunity.

Winginit - thanks for the words of encouragement, it should be an experience


Today ran 13 hill repeats on the Harlem Hill in CP - do about 74-77 seconds each

5.8, again in GGP. Absolutely gorgeous day

5.9 miles today in the first taste of summer heat. 93 degrees with bluebird skies. About 2.5 miles into the run reminded me of what last summer was like.
Good to start getting acclimated, only going to get hotter. 95+ I start breaking out the "ice sock".

I've only had a handful of runs in 90+ weather, and it was brutal each time.
