How many miles did you run today? - Page 614

post #9196 of 10559

3 slow miles this morning. I usually take Sundays off but woke up too early and couldn't get back to sleep.

5 miles today. It was already 82 by 8:30am. Way too hot for December.

5.1 miles today. Snowed a few inches and decided to take advantage of it on the road. There were between 1 and 2 inches on the road, so put on the Inov8 trail 255's and went for what amounted to a trail run on the road.

2.1 miles yesterday evening for Day #8 of the December run streak and 7.3 miles this morning in a bit more than an inch of fresh snow. First snowy run of the season here in Detroit.

Yesterday was a sloppy 10 miles.  Trails were a mess, it was raining on and off, and in the mid-30s.  I was having a blast but at the cutoff for 10 miles instead of 14.5 miles my stomach was telling me to go home.  I was incredibly hungry and anything warm in my stomach sounded good.  

 

I think I need to adjust my eating in the mornings to fuel my mid-day weekend runs.  That or bring a bunch of crap and leave it in my car for whatever sounds good.

6.5 miles at pretty fast pace (for me at least). Feel like I'm starting to get a little speed back after struggling most the summer.

a little less than 3... just an easy run on a beautiful afternoon!

Don't you carry fluid in handheld or backpack? Some Sustained energy, Perpetuem, or any of the other carb mixes would carry you thru those runs over 1 hour or more. Or carry a couple of gel paks in your handheld, back pocket, etc.

5.5 miles tonight (finished at 11:10PM) on what's supposed to be the coldest night of the year. +34 at the end. Lovely temperatures to me!

8.3 miles this morning. It was back down in the single digits with the windchill.

I use a handheld for anything over an hour.  This was just a hunger fluids were not going to cure.  I think since most of my week night runs are after dinner, I am used to running on a full stomach so a mid-day run without anything in there makes me hungry.

Did 10 miles today, my first long-run since my half marathon in mid-October thus a rather easy pace.

This morning, in Chicago, North Michigan Ave area, 2 miles. The wind chill temperature was -7 degrees.

8 miles this morning and after more than a decade of regular running I tripped and fell on the sidewalk. I usually run on the street in the pre-dawn hours to avoid uneven sidewalks but was running along a busier street and that wasn't an option in that spot. I was also distracted by some impressive Christmas light displays when I hit the deck. Thankfully, I was pretty well bundled up and no damage was done. My Marine Corps training came in handy too because I pulled off quite the legit ninja-roll and popped right back up barely missing a beat. However, I know it could have been much worse.

^ Wow, glad you're OK! I've seen other runners take some pretty nasty spills, luckily I've never tripped or fallen, fingers crossed. I did 3.1 this morning in under 26 minutes, pretty speedy for me.
