How many miles did you run today? - Page 577

post #8641 of 10240
My New Year's resolution this year was to run 1,000 miles. I put in a 9.5 mile run this morning which put me at 1,001.2 miles for the year. I reached my goal with more than 4 months to spare. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Boom! Nice work.

I also set 1000 miles as my target for this year, but I'm at about 600 right now. IIRC, my training plan will have me pass 1K just before NYC.

5.9 miles Thursday.

Nice job MP on the 1K mileage. What now?
SB, you must have gotten a late start this year, you put quite a few miles on. Surprised your only around 600.

Continue training for the Marine Corps Marathon (I am aiming for better than a 3:40 finish which would be a 15 minute PR) and then after that start working on fewer miles but a much better time. I want to get back to an 18 minute 3 miles which I haven't done in about 14 years.

I'm probably going to finish the year with close to 1,600 miles.

I don't think I'll even come close to 1,000 this year, maybe next year I'll give that a try.

Did a quick 4 miler this morning. I hadn't run all week, so I thought I would be super slow, but I guess since I was rested I ended up running this way faster than I thought I'd be able to. Pace was 8:38, which is the fastest I've been able to finish this distance, I think my previous quickest pace for 4 miles was 8:50.

A few zero-mile weeks due to injury/sickness, some laziness, and some inconsistency have me coming from behind:

13 miles today. Warm-up, 2 mile tempo intervals, 200 meter intervals, cool down. Fairly tough work out. Last week, this week, and next 2 weeks are the top of my training curve so things don't get easier.

Good goals. Tough goals. +30 second / mile pace marathon improvement and about a 18:30 5K to beat yourself in a race 14 year ago.
Does the MCM have wave starting or is it go with the flow for the first 2 miles until you have some room to move?

It has wave starting but I don't know how well the start goes. I ran it in 2010 but overslept big time and by the time I got to the start line, the race had been underway for about an hour and it was just us stragglers passing through. No worries though. I decided to just stop at every open bar I passed along the way and enjoy a beer. I had my worst running time ever but the best time running ever.

I am going to miss running (and hiking) in scenery like this! The Bruce Peninsula in Ontario.



Watching the sunrise, during the early morning run, over the Lions Head bluff was magical.

The many strenuous hikes will pay off big dividends, I hope, when I run the hills in the Crim Race next week.

's goal of 1000 miles is inspirational.

That picture is awesome. I've always wanted to head out there or to Manitoulin Island.

Good luck at the Crim. Maybe I'll see you out on the streets.

Like so many places, it is the "off the beaten track" trails that bring the greatest rewards.

Just 4 months ago, I was convinced that I would never run again. And, here I am going the Crim again. I know thatI will finish, but the pace will be "moderato"!

I ran again, SB.

So I see from the WAYWT thread...

What's that black band-aid looking thing on the sleeve?
