How many miles did you run today? - Page 647

post #9691 of 12856
wingin' it, do you start tapering now, or will you have a longer run between now and then? It seems like a huge jump from 26 to 62 miles.

7.6 miles with incredible winds. Felt like running in place when I ran into the wind but wonderful with the wind at my back.

winin'it - where is your 100K?

6.5 miles this morning. In honor of opening day, I made sure to run past Miguel Cabrera's house this morning. Maybe I was hoping he'd be outside early today handing out hundred dollar bills from his nearly $300 million contract.

Got in a good run yesterday evening after a lot of yard work.  Found my new neighborhood loop with a doozy of a hill towards the end.  Most of the 4.5 mile loop is just rollers and this one gets steep.  Should be fun on tired legs....

If that was just the jump, you are right. I did a 50K in Feb, turned out w/ bad conditions it was 6.5 hours that was about equal to 35 miles of effort on that course. There are quite a few training plans for 50M or 100K's. With back to back long runs and long weekly mileage, the legs and body get the needed stress. If I were training for a 100M, I'd be running a 50M or even 35-40 followed up w/ another shorter run the next day around 8 weeks out from the race. The balance of too many miles vs wear and tear on the body to recover is what I pay to keep on the McMillian plan. Ian Torrence has given me a plan last year for 6 month of training and then right back on this one, so he's done a good job.

Did about 10.5 miles today. Bit longer than my typical Monday but was feeling pretty lousy about having to cut my long run short on Saturday due to ... Stomach issues.

Did another 10.5 today (same route). Legs were a little uncooperative for the first couple miles but settled in behind a speedy young lady for the last few miles and finished strong (though not quite strong enough to keep pace with her for the last 500 meters where she thought to remind me that I was both old and slow).

That's great. I'd love to walk with my daughter some time in the future. How old are they and when (and how) did they start?

6.1 miles this morning. It was about 33º out at 5:00 a.m. and looking ahead in the 10 day forecast there is only one morning with slightly lower temps. Maybe spring has finally sprung here!

It was 79 here yesterday and I thought I was going to die running.

They are 7 and 9. They did a 1-mile fun run last spring, but we haven't run much since then because our schedules don't really align. We're trying early mornings now.

Sounds great to walk together. Mine is turning 7 next month.
