8.6 miles before work this morning.

6.2 today. Been trying a new routine where I alternative running about 6 miles with core workouts/p90x-ish stuff as recommended here. It's only been a few days, but I feel great and don't have nagging leg soreness like I was experiencing when running between 5 - 8 miles a day almost every day.

10 this morning. A bit of knee soreness.

any of you wear custom orthotics? I've had mine for quite a bit (i have high arches) and after my run on saturday with my fk frees (third run in them), i had a lot of pain in the arch of my right foot (I had to loosen my shoe halfway through the run because they felt a bit tight).

The pain is subsiding so i think i'll be ok but has this happened to any0one else?

Do you usually run in such lightweight running shoes? I used to run in frees but had all sorts of problems, so moved to slightly beefier shoes like Asics Nimbus and now Adidas. That said, I guess the orthotics are supposedly to provide a customized solution.

I would just buy the Hoka One despite the hideousness if I were you.

I mostly switch between altra's (0 drop) and free havens (4mm drop). The Fk frees actually have a larger drop than im used too

I run in an 8mm drop shoe.  Anything less and it is painful.  Unless you really need a super minimal shoe, stay away.  I run in New Balance 890s and have continued with no foot soreness for quite a while.  When I tried to throw in some 4mm drop shoes all sorts of problems started.

I got in 5 miles this morning. It was a heatwave at 45º at 4:45 a.m.! It's now already down to about 38º and we are supposed to get about 5 more inches of snow tonight. Just when I thought I'd finally be able to see my lawn again... ffffuuuu.gif

Taking advantage of a brief winter thaw--temperature, 36 degrees--I ran 8 miles this morning--dodging potholes, remaining icy spots, and tundra. I just heard that we are expecting 6 inches of snow within the next 24 hours. "The Winter of Our Discontent"

I really like core 2 days / week. I've got the McMillan DVD set and #2 & #3 are great. Hamstrings, abs, lower back, but, and hip flexors both inside and out. It has helped me more than 5 mile easy run would have for a 6th day of running.

[quote name="Michigan Planner" url="/t/69386/how-many-miles-did-you-run-today/9600#post_6987407 I did however try running across a snowy field and discovered that the snow was much deeper than I anticipated and sunk in up to my waist a few times. Like an idiot I tried to continue powering through it rather than turn back and go back to the trail.[/quote]

Are you sure you didn't fall asleep watching the Rocky sequel where he was in Russia training... happy.gif

5.5 hilly trail miles yesterday afternoon. Warm day! It was 77 when I got back in my car afterward.

The weather has been insane! Late nights and work have kept me off the road since Monday. But the schedule is clear tomorrow!
