How many miles did you run today? - Page 619

post #9271 of 12847
4.5 miles. Ice and snow storm here yesterday. single digits, ice, and some wind today. Stayed inside and turned on the mountain goat machine. Ran alternate hill repeats of 1 min @ 1 degree incline and 1 min @ 15 degrees at a constant pace. Different type of workout w/ no down hills to recover.

Anyone here own a copy of Fixing your Feet and recommend it? Looking for some new techniques to combat hot spots on the balls of my feet (a recurring problem that has cropped up again)

It is one of the books I have been meaning to pick up but haven't.  I find that a good covering of aquaphor helps as it does not dissolve in water and holds up well to sweaty socks.  Other things that could help are finding a good non-cotton sock and keeping your feet moisturized.  I have been moisturizing my hands and feet recently which has helped stop blisters on my hands in the gym and my feet while running.

Yep, good book. Lots of info for various distances and circumstances. Its a pretty big book.

7 miles in 70 degrees... none too shabby.

 

re moisturizing: I'll give that a shot. Thanks.

5.5 for me on trails in 63 degree temps!

2.1 miles this afternoon and then I ate most of a large pizza. Tis the season! That's probably no worse than my annual run to all of the ice cream and custard stores in a 3 mile radius I do each summer though.

In other news my daughter gave me an early Christmas present: a horrible head cold. These next few days of running are going to be tough.

5.4 miles walking today. By mile 4, the groin was complaining. I guess I'll need to see a doctor after all... angry.gif

6.25 hilly trail miles this afternoon with friends. 67 degrees out! 65.25 for the past seven days is a new PR for me...

6.5 today in nearly 80 degree temps. Wacky SoCal winter so far.

10.4 mile Christmas trail run. A few inches of snow and the park to myself. Good run.

Bit over 8 miles first thing this morning. Was so gorgeous I considered doing a second lap but decided it wasn't worth the broken legs I'd have received from mom for showing up late to Christmas brunch.

2.1 miles on Christmas Eve and another 7.4 miles on Christmas evening. I'm hoping to get in another 8 miles today before the snow stops but it will probably be another late night run again.

Had a lot of travel in the past 3 days so no running for me.  Will try to get out tonight but for some reason I think we have plans.  Last year I would run 4 miles at lunch daily over the winter time...need to start that back up as evenings fill up quick.

Quite some time since I've updated. I'm up to about 2.5 miles daily. 5k's on the weekend. I'm running at about a 8:30 / mile pace.

 

But...I had an ingrown toenail removed on Monday so I haven't ran this week. It sucks because I've been off work, but it's okay. Also got a variety of running socks for xmas.
