How many miles did you run today? - Page 645

Congrats on both counts NOBD.

Congrats MOBD!  I got in about 2.5 miles in a packed park before some weight training.  The legs are feeling good.

Brick run today. 3.25 immediately after a hard 40 mile ride. Challenge Penticton training is officially underway!

6.1 mile tonite. This week is the top of my training cycle for mileage. Saturday will put me 3 weeks out from race day.

NOBD - Great job with run and celebration day. Going the whole year and hitting good mileage will keep you enjoying the run more than the smoke. You will also repair your body. I quit 7 years ago after smoking a pack a day for 26 years. I took an MVO2 max stress test and had a heart scan done this year. The doc found nothing to indicate that I had ever smoked and said if I hadn't told him, he would have guessed I never smoked in my life. Keep it up and congrats. The first year of running is the toughest to get through. So you hit a couple of difficult things with quitting and running.

Thanks for sharing that story, wingin' it. Inspirational.

I enjoy running very much. The hard thing, I guess for every runner, is to make progress without getting injured. I had to adjust the starters program I followed, because running three times a week was more than my legs could handle. (I've had leg muscle problems for years.)

At the moment running two times 5-6 km a week is just right; gives my legs just enough time to recover. (Apart from that I swim twice a week.) I finished my 0-5 km training program three weeks ago and I'm just running with my own music (Jimi in that last run smile.gif) and without a schedule now. I'm going to continue with that the coming weeks, and after that I'll probably do a 10 km program.

Congrats!  At some point you get to where it feels like you can run forever.  Once I get past roughly 40 minutes I get this feeling but most of the time before this I feel like I want to just stop and go back inside.

Thanks!

smile.gif I think I know that (first) feeling. I'm probably fit enough already to do more, but I should really give my muscles, knees and so on more time to get used to this new activity. So, first I want to get the 5(+)km runs I'm doing now in 'my system'.

I'm not in a hurry either; I enjoy running twice a week. My most important goal is to keep doing that (i.e. to not get injured).

9.6 miles tonite w/ some speed work, or at least an attempt at it. 30 mph winds w/ gusts up to 40. Flew when w/ the wind, leaned forward and worked my ass off going against it to even get any semblance of speed.

Did 7.0 miles yesterday, checked this thread tonight to psych me up for another 7 tomorrow morning. Probably not the best sign that I'm not looking forward to it.
post #9672 of 12844
5.25 today. Harder than my usual 7.0, but I anticipated that.

Curious, what is the average age of all your runners? I'm 34, so have always assumed I'm about 10 years older than most here.

Mid 40s

Ran 11 this morning.  Felt great after taking yesterday off.  First day off in 3 weeks and I needed it!

Much younger than SB, but older than forty. smile.gif
