How many miles did you run today? - Page 585

Nothing conclusive, but she doesn't think there's serious damage. Seeing someone with a sports-medicine focus on Monday.

5.7 tonite. Felt good to get out after being sick for last few days. Low 80's was nice too instead of mid 90's.

Thanks, for some reason thought maybe you were overseas (with the states vacation comment) coming here for an ultra and wanted to see if you had any questions that maybe I could help answer.
Nashville isn't too far from KC area. If you are ever looking closer to home, the Trail nerds are one of the largest trail running clubs in the Midwest. Many 50K's during the year and several of them in Kansas. None of them would be considered well known as JFK or Rocky Raccoon, etc., but some pretty good aid stations, technical trails (bridal and single track) and enjoyable races. Good luck with your surgery.

Just did my first run since Sunday... 3 miles in the thriving metropolis of Saint George, Utah. It's warm out there already at 7:30AM! At least warm by my standards...

 

 

Last weekend, I did the Big Kahuna Triathlon (half Ironman distance). My swim and bike were decent (I PR'd the swim by one second (34:59 (1.2 miles) and did pretty well on the bike (2:47:something for 56 miles). I fell apart on the run though, and ended up having to walk for large chunks of it. I got cramping below the quads on both legs and became really tight. I hobbled in with a run time of 2:28:03 (40 minutes slower than my half marathon PR!). My overall time was 5:56:35 (29 minutes slower than last year). Oh well, there's always next time!

 

 For now, I'm training for a 500 mile relay bike race (doing it as a 2-person mixed team with a friend) on the first weekend of October. After that, training for Ultraman #3 goes into full swing!

Does it make a pop or does it feel like there is a knot being pulled through a hole that is a little too small? I've had the same sensation after a few long runs and came to the conclusion it was from a breakdown in form as I tired. I felt it most after sitting for awhile then walking up or down stairs. It went away for me and I was back out after a few days, but I'm interested to hear what you find out.

I haven't run since that little bit on Tuesday. I can feel the small pop sometimes when walking down the stairs. I, too, am curious!

12.1 today w/ 1 mile tempo intervals.
Congrats Fueco on completing the race. They can't all be PR's, but staying w it thru adversity and suffering to the end counts for something.

Speaking of the Rocky's, I forgot about this one. Take a look at the Pike Peak Marathon in August. That looks like a blast. There's about a 1 hr Youtube video on the Ascent (Half) and then the next day Marathon (Full). I may try to do this one next year. What views from the top.

Still building up really slowly, but some progression:

7 miles today. I walked in the door from my run and had a very good email--Confirmation for Boston 2014!!

9 miles today.
Congrats 11 o'clock. Trying this next Sunday to BQ myself.

Nippy, this morning. Temp at 31 degrees. I had to find my Trail Blazer wool cap and mittens. 4 miles.

Last week, due to trips to Chicago and Toronto, I was able to enjoy early morning runs on Lake Michigan and Lake Ontario.

Wow, that is a rapid change of temps. Weren't you Michiganders suffering from the heat a couple of weeks ago?

Yes! Last Tuesday, the temps in Chicago were 97. In Michigan, around 92.
Welcome to the Great Lakes!

I put in 8.3 miles today and it was a relatively balmy 45º when I started out so I didn't have it as bad as CP. Tomorrow is supposed to be in the mid-50s early in the morning. Perfect running temps in my opinion.
