How many miles did you run today? - Page 658

post #9856 of 12862
1 hour on the elliptical instead of running, as I was feeling some knee soreness last night. I figure I'd give myself a rest day considering I upped from 4 miles to 5 miles to 6.3 miles in a period of two weeks.

That's what I'm doing wrong! It's 92 here, not exactly conducive to running. I'll likely do my run after dark.

Yeah, no sense running in this heat.

Woke up this morning to 52* and misty.  Got in 9.5 miles at a 7:20/mi pace.  It felt amazing and like I couldn't go fast enough.  The hills are in the front half so I was ticking off mid-6's by the end.  It was one of those runs where everything just goes right.

2.5 miles, this morning, in the cold, cold rain. Temperature around 44 degrees. Whither Spring art thou?

I, who always laughed and scoffed at people did yoga, have begun yoga. After only a few sessions, I can tell that there is an improvement in my wretched, arthritic hip and shoulder. For me, this has been a good thing. I'm not running faster, but the stiffness and pain are greatly reduced. I'm hopeful for more progress.

6.35 miles. Felt good after a day off yesterday.

6.5km / 4mi this morning... started pissing rain halfway through. After a few short weeks I'm acclimatizing pretty well; 3km kicked my ass the first time I went out about a month ago, but this was pretty smooth.

I'm still squatting 3x/week so the first half of the run is getting over the DOMS and the second half finally starts to feel OK. We'll see how long that's sustainable...

Stupid question -DOMS?

I've been considering yoga for a while but never actually gotten around to it. A friend owns a yoga studio in Detroit (right down the street from Run Detroit) and is offering a "Yoga for Runners" class starting later this month that I am thinking about checking out.

I've only done it a couple of times, but yoga seems like a great complement to running.

Easy 3 for me this morning, my fifth consecutive day. That's new for me. I've also added some dynamic stretching to my warm-up the past couple of days. Seems to help with the groin tightness I've had since injury this winter. It's also using some muscles which apparently haven't been getting much use. Yowza.

The place over on Forest?

I took the yoga plunge only quite by accident. I learned that the brother of a former personal trainer was a yoga teacher. A UM grad, he explained, in his biography, that he was had several sports related injuries and that yoga helped restore the muscles. He was tired of taking pain pills. All this got my attention, so I gave it a try. He is a good teacher which, as in anything, makes all the difference. He practices a form of Bikraim Yoga. To my surprise, I am quite flexible and was able to do the first set of 26 poses with mostly no problem. I was expecting to be sore as heck the day after. Instead, my pained shoulder felt normal for the first time in months. I'm hoping for the same restoration in my right hip. While still tight, I found that I was able to run with greater ease than before. I'm a big adherent of the "Inner Game" philsophy--all those books like "The Inner Game of Tennis", "The Inner Game of Golf", etc.... And, even, "The Inner Game of Music" which applies the principles from sporting books to music. The central issue in all of them is being more aware of the body. What are you thinking when you do something etc.... Yoga seems to be closely linked to such an approach.

First triple digit run of the summer... Bit over 6 miles in 102 degrees. Caught a friend as he was starting his second lap and he set a nice mellow pace.

Wasn't as bad as I expected but my attempt to push hard the last half mile almost made me puke, heh.

This morning, 4 miles. Temp, 36 degrees. Had to wear my mittens.
