How many miles did you run today? - Page 594

post #8896 of 10445

Good work SB!  Taper is always a weird time as I never feel as productive.

I did just under 8 miles yesterday with a bunch of half mile intervals at the track. I also decided to run a bunch of sprints back and forth up and down the length of the football field. For some reason, I had never done that before. Maybe I was just motivated by watching football most of the afternoon...

Thanks! Yep, that's the longest in this program. It's my second time going that distance; should have been third, but I had to sit out a week with a strained calf. The first time felt a lot better, but I've been feeling kinda crappy for the past few days.

Does anyone else have trouble sleeping after a long run? I think I'm seeing a correlation between 15+ runs and insomnia/waking up in the middle of the night. For instance, after yesterday's run, I expected to crash, but I couldn't get to sleep until 4:30 a.m. Brutal. On the plus side, I'm in pretty good shape today physically. No pain, and only minor aches; surprising considering how I felt last night.

I get similar restlessness after longer runs... The thing that helps me is a beer and a couple of Ibuprofens...

When the temperature is 32 degrees, a runner's best friend is a pair of Saucony (or similar) mittens.

6 miles before the sunrise.

Go, Tigers!

8.4 miles this morning. My route took me past an elementary school that has a zero setback from the sidewalk and at 5:30 a.m. the kitchen staff was in there baking fresh bread or rolls with the windows and doors open. I smelled so good in the crisp morning air that I wanted to stop and poke me head in and ask for a slice.

What time of day do you normally run? I usually run early early in the mornings and generally have no problem falling asleep at night. My wife complains because it takes her forever to fall asleep but I am out about 10 minutes after my head hits the pillow most nights.

I used to run after 10pm and have no problem falling asleep but I was in my teens then.  During the week I run after 5pm but they are not long runs by any means...those are reserved for early weekend mornings.

You should have gone in! The nicest people in the world work in school kitchens.

I'm typically morning/midday, but Sunday was late afternoon.

6.2 miles this morning.

I've been running my butt off (literally... I've lost about 15 pounds and 2" from my waistline) this spring and summer prepping for the Marine Corps Marathon and now this:

MCM and the Government Shutdown
Since the government shutdown occurred, the Marine Corps Marathon continues its coordination with hopes of a conclusion in time to host the event without impact. Without a resolution to the government shutdown this week, the MCM as planned is in jeopardy of being cancelled.

While still considering and exploring all possible options, the MCM has targeted this Saturday, October 19 as the date to officially notify runners of the status of the event. It is sincerely the hope of everyone associated with the organization that MCM participants can run as planned.

Hopefully they don't have to cancel. I don't really mind a major change in the route but an outright cancellation of the event would be really disappointing.

That is no good!
