How many miles did you run today? - Page 578

post #8656 of 10157
8 at 8'09" pace. Which, for me, is great and enough to reset my 10K PR along the way.

16 on deck for tomorrow...

16. That was an ass beating after yesterday. Still, PRs for distance and time today, so I got that going for me. smile.gif

^ nice! 8.5 for me today. I think on Sundays I need to start getting up earlier to run, because once it hits 8am the sun is already really hot. I started at around 7 this morning, so the last 20 minutes of my run was pretty brutal.

20.7 miles today. Wraps up a long week at 58 and change miles.

While it seemed a tough week, nothing compared to the weekend run in Colorado. A buddy of mine that I train with finished the Leadville 100 this morning in 26:12. On his feet for 2 sunrises. Awesome run.

Here is the course profile.

That is madness.

That monster is Hope Pass. It hits you at mile 40-45 and then you get to run it again at mile 52. He said they added 800 ft of elevation to Hope Pass this year on the course.

I cannot say enough about the CEP compression sleeves. They have made it possible for me to resume running. I'm also a fan of Swiftwick running socks. This morning, I ran 7 miles in our local "Prairies and Ponds" linear trail. Life in "Lake Woebegon' isn't all bad.

CP, can you tell more about the socks? What do they do for you?

Compression sleeves: Making a long story short--in January I experienced severe pain in my leg/hip. After months of going in circles and several doctor/therapist visits--and NOT running!--the cause of the pain was discovered. Also, I found a fantastic therapist who also is a University teacher and research person. While my hip flexor movement improved, I still encountered some pain in my lower leg--a bruised muscle? I tried different compression socks but felt that they were not firm enough. Some of them were just uncomfortable. I was introduced to the CEP sock my the owner of a new running store in Detroit who, himself, is a marathon runner and a former therapist. He wears them all the time. I tried them, and I was hooked. I have no pain in my leg. And, I feel that the socks encourage me to pick up feet more and land more softly. The material in the sock is quite thin. Wearing them, even on a hot summer day, is no problem. They work for me.

The Swiftwick socks are thin and really do a great job of keeping my feet dry. They also have some compression technology.

Both socks have websites that explain much more.

I put in 8 miles yesterday afternoon at a 7:15/mile pace and wanted to collapse when I got home. I did a competitive 10 miler back in June at a flat 8:00/mile pace and I have another coming up this Saturday and am hoping for about a 7:40/mile pace. We shall see...

Where's NYR/NYI? I haven't seen him in this or the other run-round-the-world thread in ages.

Nice job for 8 miles. Tough pace to hold during training.

I'm a fan of calf sleeves. I wear the 2XU sleeves and Injini socks on longer training days. For ultra's I wear the calf sleeves and the quad sleeves.
Hear good things about Smithwick though.
