How many miles did you run today? - Page 583

post #8731 of 10458
4.25 this evening. Waited six hours after lunch, but the burrito still sat high and heavy in my gut and made the whole thing miserable. Ugh.

On a brighter note, I hit 700 miles YTD. Marathon training is on track, and I am so far injury-free.

This has been a glorious week for running in Michigan. Lower humidity and cool temperatures. A pre-sunrise run, this morning: 4 miles in 30 minutes, a good pace for me.

7 miles this am.

9 at 8'07"/mile around midday. That, friends, is my version of hustling. Set a new 10k PR on the way, and it was particularly satisfying because it's 85º and no wind here today! Sweet jeebus, I don't know how you people run in the heat all summer long. I am definitely San Francisco Soft when it comes to weather.

7.1 miles this afternoon after the rain cleared out... now about to head out the door to head to the Big House to watch the Wolverines! Go Blue!

Saturday morning, 4 miles, in Ann Arbor. And then, went to the M v ND game, "Under the lights"




Very cool!

And who says there is no rivalry! The attendance of 115,109 set an NCAA record.

In a couple of weeks, the annual Champions for Charity Race will be held. But, alas, it no longer is allowed to end inside Michigan Stadium. Bummer.

9.3 this morning after about a week off. I felt great for about the first 8 miles, my pace was down to just over 9 minutes per mile. But after 8 I hit a wall, and I was barely jogging for the last 1.3 miles. Only about one more month before my first half.

I put in about 18.5 miles this morning along a local rails-to-trail trail and through a few small nature preserves. It was absolutely perfect weather for the run: slightly overcast, 62º, no humidity...

It was an awesome game. It was my first night game as I didn't make it last year. It was absolutely electric. I wish they would do another night game towards the end of the season.

There will only be a home late night game once a year. Or, once every two years. The last "under the lights" game in AA was in 2011. The expense for a late night game--police, security, traffic--is much more than a traditional day game. The idea of having the M v MSU game "under the lights" has been nixed by both universities--fear of problems at the midnight hour.

Next year's home schedule is a dud. All the good games are away. The only home game of interest is.....Appalachian State.

For some reason I thought it was 2012 when they began the new nighttime games, not 2011.

I didn't make it to any game in 2011 (or 2010). To tell you the truth, I much prefer watching the games from the comfort of my own couch as I don't generally enjoy crowds and a 12:00 or 3:30 game just destroys my entire day, but my wife tries to go to every home game each year. We buy season tickets with my in-laws each year though and in 2010 or 2011 (I forget exactly when) my father-in-law decided to upgrade our packages into the "Stadium Club". At first I didn't care and still didn't go to a game for a couple of seasons but then when my wife finally dragged me to one, I did appreciate the upgrades (and the added space and clean restrooms). In the end, 3 games a season is my limit though. Next up for me is Indiana. I may force myself to go to a 4th game if I can get all four of our tickets for the OSU game because a good friend of mine from grad school and his wife both went to OSU and I would take them with me for that. If not, I'm more than happy to be home with the daughter while my wife does the partying.

I think Notre Dame bowing out of the games with Michigan is really too bad. I can see why they did it, especially from their end, but if Michigan continues to show improvement over the next few seasons and once again becomes a perennial powerhouse, I can see them kicking themselves for the decision down the line.

16 miles today. Went at 6:30 am to attempt to avoid the heat here. Temp was 81 at end of run. Crazy hot here for this time of year. Was 100+ this afternoon.

Got out for my last trail run (7.25 miles) until surgery in 2 weeks which will keep me from running until December.  Debating on signing up for an Ultra next year but do not know what to get myself into.  My fiancee said a destination in the states is fine by her so debating what 50M, 100K , and 100M races would be fun to get out and run.

 

I'd love to do one of the bigger 100M races but may start with a 50M to see how it goes.
