How many miles did you run today? - Page 611

post #9151 of 10793

Put in 8.5 tonight after 4 days of non-stop eating and wine.

I got in 7 miles on the dot yesterday afternoon.

I am trying to do a run streak of at least 2 miles a day in December. I wasn't able to go out to run before work today but am hoping to slip away for a few minutes afterwards so I can keep this nascent streak alive!

Ran 8 miles this morning. Longest I've ever run. I've been creeping around 7 miles per day for about two weeks now and feel progressively stronger and better. This is all on treadmills now, and I've used a .5% to 1% incline to somewhat? simulate the outdoors.

That said, I was eating like a giant pig. My hunger hit right after lunch.

Just the past couple days, I started eating like a King at lunch. The big lunch seems to knock out the afternoon snacking.

There was a period where I took the frequent meals thing too far and started just basically grazing all afternoon. A kind bar here. An apple there. Oh, some red grapes! Oh, a handful of dried roasted edamame...., etc.

This morning, 7 miles. Temperature around 25 degrees. Actually, it was perfect running weather. No wind; no dampness in the air. The new super techno headlamp from LL Bean really lights up the dark roads and sidewalks.

Love my headlamp.  I use it for some much these days other than running.

For those of you who run with headlamps and in cold weather, which ones have you had the best luck with? The few that I've had over the years always seem to die very quickly on cold days. Of course, I am a cheapskate and buy the least expensive one at the store, but it may be time to upgrade.

All this talk of headlamps reminds me that my mother-in-law gave me one a couple of years ago, and I have no idea where it is. I wonder if my wife has confiscated it for the camping box...

6.25 hilly trail miles today. The temps dropped almost 10 degrees during my run, and the winds kicked up. Winter weather is coming to Northern California! We're supposed to drop into the upper 20s these next couple of mornings. I guess I'll be firing up the wood burning stove this evening!

I think anything will lose battery life in the very cold weather. Looking for a headlamp rated with a bright enough lumen and long burn life is the key. If you want long life and very bright, the Black Diamond Icon is hard to beat due to having 4 AA batteries, but you sacrifice weight. It's pretty heavy. I still think my earlier post about the Princeton Remix is one of the best headlamps for the money. I wore one tonite and ran some intervals and had no problems seeing very well.
There is a real good review of the lamp in the customer reviews section of Running warehouse / Princeton remix. Uses 3 AAA batteries. Here's a snippet of the review:

Maxbright Low: Here’s where the Remix gets good. The Maxbright LED. While Princeton Tec calls this a ‘narrow’ beam, it really isn’t much narrower than the Ultrabright 3-LED pattern and casts a beam plenty wide enough for running. It will light up a 6ft wide trail in front of you, a full road lane, or two- depending on how far out you’re looking, and the step up in lighting from the Ultrabright level is noticeable and pleasurable. You get a big jump in your ability to see (from 3 seconds ahead to 5 seconds ahead), for not much reduction in available burn time (61hrs to 51hrs). The color of the Maxbright LED, while still very white, is warmer than the very blue/white Ultrabrights. The distance spec on this level is 51m, which is a very nice step up from the Ultrabright High of 29m. Getting to this setting is easy, as it just requires holding down the button for 3 seconds – and you’re there. Each headlamp will have its own ‘go to’ setting. The one that you prefer and always use. For the Remix… Maxbright Low is it.
