Unexpectedly in LA this weekend. Rode along the Strand this afternoon from Manhattan Beach to Redondo Beach to register at the last minute for the Redondo Super Bowl 10k. Picked up a sweet wind proof vest and another long-sleeve T at the expo. Resisted the urge to buy another pair of the original PureConnects on sale.

I stopped by the Manhattan Beach pier before my flight. Weather was perfect. Lots of runners, bicyclists and volleyball players out. Nice scenery all around. Now I'm back in the snow, ice, and cold.

Have fun on the 10K.

Fun race! I had no idea what kind of course it would be, but it was a bit more rolling than I anticipated. I had a nice kick, and did pretty well considering I didn't train at all. This is only the second time I've run more than five miles in more than a month.

But for my injuries I would have been signed up for the Kaiser Half up in SF this morning. This was a nice consolation.

So thrashed today...

I made it to mile 63.1 before throwing in the towel. I started off reasonably well, but the warmth and humidty got me. My quads started seizing up around mile 25, but I was able to make good time until mile 45 or so when my right knee started hurting. I basically hobbled for 18 miles before stopping. There was just no way I could make the cutoff.

Sorry, Fueco. I know it wasn't what you were after, but 63 miles is a hell of an accomplishment in itself.

Tough conditions and race Fueco. Good effort to 63. Dropping is never fun, but you were in good company. Michele Yates (2013 female ultra runner of the year) dropped due to problems w/ heat and humidity as well. It's why finishing a 100 is a win all by itself no matter what the finish time. Rest up and get healthy. RICE.

Yup, I'm not too bummed about. I talked to my craziest friend (WS100, RAAM, Badwater, Arrowhead, DecaIronnan, yadayadayada) before calling it. She said that DNFing is just part of the fun. We're getting psyched up now for good food, good beer and some football.

Fueco - your 63 miles are still damn impressive.

I put in 4.6 miles this morning. I thought the temps were supposed to be close to 20º but we were back down in the single digits when I stepped out. I cannot recall the last time I saw another runner in the predawn hours.

Good work Fueco!  I saw Yates was in 4th overall then I got busy and didn't see she dropped for a while.  

 

I got in 6 miles yesterday after a busy Friday/Saturday with terrible sleep.  It makes a world of difference being well rested.

5.1 miles tonite.
This should be an interesting race. We had 2 inches of snow last weekend, predictions are 6-10 inches of snow tomorrow, and another couple possible by Saturday. Could be running this 50K trail race on 8 -12 inches of snow. Wed - Thursday is down to single digits and negative temps. Warming to teens for Friday & race day. Should be a race to remember.

3 miles, this afternoon, when the temperature climbed to about 24. The sun was out. It felt like spring! +24 beats -24. Early this morning, it was ghastly cold; there was an icy fog in the air. I could not see the car in front of me. Another storm is expected by Wednesday morning.

Over the years, with more and more training and running, that has ceased to be an issue for me. I imagine that upper body pain isn't too out of the ordinary for folks new to distances above 10 miles.

It was my 4th all time, but really only 2nd in the last 10 years, with the first one being last spring. Maybe it was posture, maybe it was just that overall I need to have more training. I really like how the longer runs are more enjoyable now.

6.5, but my legs apparently signed up only for 4.5.

7.3 miles, after 5 hours of sleep and last night polishing off a bottle of Glenlivet 21 with some friends for a birthday.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

4.8 miles this morning. I was out running just after 4:00 a.m. and our predicted 3+" of overnight snow had materialized as a light dusting with a couple flurries still coming down. Somewhere around mile 3 the flurries turned into a face-stinging white out and I decided to head home. I am going to have to dig out the clear lenses for my sunglasses and start wearing them when it's snowing and I'm running.
