5 miles.

There is something special about running on a hazy, early morning in the summer watching the big orange sun rise over the trees for the first half of the run and, then, gazing at the clear moon when running back home to the west. Pure Michigan.

Got in 31.7 miles in 5:08:07 on Saturday along The Long Path
Sunday did 14 miles in CP in 2:05:20

Legs felt surprisingly good but I'm coming down with a cold/ fever, it feels like my legs can handle the distance better than my body can. Will likely take the next few days off and rest. I'm heading out to CO on Thursday to run Mt. Massive and Hope Pass over the weekend as a final push to get my legs strong for VT.

Nice runs Myles. Piling on the heavy mileage affects people differently. Awesome that your legs and core can handle things well right now. Good luck with the cold, maybe just a summer cold at a bad time.

Is the elevation in CO the same as the VT run? Looked up the VT100 and see you have about 15K climb and descent. From the description, looks like the weather (heat) will play a big part of the run as most of the uphill portion looks like you hit it in the daylight. Some nice race reports out there from last few years. Hopefully you will put one together for us when you get done.
Do you have a crew or doing it solo w/ drop bags? Stay positive.

winingit - thank you for the words of encouragement

As for CO - it's WAY higher altitude than VT, as VT is at sea level, but between my run across Zion National Park earlier this year and following Anton Krupicka on his blog, I've been getting the burn to run in beautiful places. I happened to be able to cut out of work for a long weekend and my coach said the mountain training wouldn't hurt at all, as it would be tougher than race day.

As for VT - I don't have a pacer but I do have a crew as I'm running the race with 8 or so friends from here in the city but will also be using drop bags along the way. For heat training I've been spending extended periods of time in the sauna and steam room in an attempt to acclimate my body.

Will def be writing up a report as I did for last year and Western States.

I put in a bit more than 11 miles this morning with the middle 8 of those miles at an 8:10 pace. Sustaining that pace for that distance is pretty darn good for me. I hit the road to run just before 5:00 a.m. and I ran for about 5 miles along Woodward Avenue which is arguably the main street for the Detroit area. There is one small stretch of that route where there is no sidewalk, bike path, or even a shoulder but it was early enough that I could run those nearly 2 miles right up the middle of the lanes of traffic almost entirely undisturbed (I did have to step off into the weeds a couple of times for a few yards). It's always eerie running a normally very busy street when there is nobody out there.

I'm getting very confident that I will not have much trouble of hitting my goal of 3:45 in the Marine Corps Marathon in October.

At lunch time I put in a slow 4.5 miles around my office campus.

Got in 7.9 miles this am in 1:11:08 - legs felt fine and I'm 90% over my fever/ cold. Should be good to go for this weekend out in CO.

3 miles this morning. Took a couple weeks off for some rest, but now I need to start training for my first half in October. With my new job, I pretty much have to run in the morning now...it's still relatively warm out at 5:30am (high 60s, sometimes low 70s), but it feels so much cooler since the sun isn't out yet.

And I do get to see different animals now - no gators lately, but I did almost step on an armadillo before he saw me coming and hightailed it back under a bush.

That's my normal time for running and Monday when I was out I had three or four bats swooping all around me as I was running up my street. Even after years of running early in the mornings, that was a first.

When I was down in Naples in February I was out running early one morning and also almost stepped on an armadillo before he scurried off under a parked car. I had never seen one in the wild (that wasn't squashed on the side of the road) and have to say they are quite the strange little animal. It seemed to hop on all fours as much as it walked.

9.8. It's crazy muggy in San Francisco the past few days. Not particularly hot, but unpleasant.
post #8489 of 10716
94 degrees at start of run and 91 at end of run today. Went to the high school track. Tough run.
2.5 miles warm-up, 5 x 7 min @ 10K-HM pace w/ 3 min recovery, 2.5 miles cool down. 11 miles total.
The recovery part was as much walking as slow jogging.

10 miles this morning. I got home from my run and looked at my iPhone screen and saw that it clocked me at 9.85 miles so I kept running laps around my circular driveway in order to get to 10 miles on the dot.

OCD strikes again!
