How many miles did you run today? - Page 667

post #9991 of 12849
I did 8.7 miles yesterday and a 5k on Saturday. The 5k was put on by a private school a block from my house and I actually finished in the top 10 (6th or 7th I believe). There were no bibs, medals, or official timing but I did win a $25 gift card to a local lacrosse store. I don't play lacrosse though so I tried trading my gift card for a gift card to a local ice cream shop. Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful. angry.gif This was my first ever prize from running though so that was cool.

I've actually been disappointed with their longevity, but maybe I just had a bad pair or am rough on them. I was inspired to order a second pair today so maybe I'll have better luck with the new ones.

I didn't run today, but yesterday I managed to get in 4.

What? Wait a minute... no magic shoes. That's it, I'm tossing out all of my Inov-8's and maybe the NB 1400 road shoes too. Next you'll be posting something about Santa Claus.

Way to go MP. Top 10 and a prize is pretty awesome. Good job. Did you finally get the family to come watch? You posted about this race being the one they could cheer you on close to home.

5.5 miles tonight. Quite a bit of my run was along a trail next to a river in the woods. My pace was about 7:15/mile for the duration. I think I ran faster than normal to escape the mosquitos.

My wife and nearly 4-year-old daughter were standing in the yard cheering as I ran past. It was great. My wife said I had a grin from ear to ear and I kept thanking her all day for coming out the 14 steps to watch. My daughter had a blast. She brought her little table out front to eat breakfast because she didn't want to miss me and then she had a cowbell, a couple maize and blue pompons, a train whistle, a drum, and a big foam finger. She said she couldn't decide which one she wanted to take out so she brought them all.

They were the only spectators along the entire route! This was the first 5k that the school has put on (but they probably had about 200 runners) and I think the people who happened to be outside as we ran past had no idea what was going on. It was still great though and I hope they hold it again next year.

6.5 miles this morning
post #9996 of 12849

With a new job and manager has come a new running schedule.  I now have longer in the mornings so I can wake up 10min earlier and get my 5.3mile run in.  Going to try a little longer tomorrow.

5.76 miles at a very brisk (for me) pace of 8.03 miles. I was outracing an incoming thunderstorm. Good motivation.

3.5 miles at 8:44 pace, quickest run for me in probably 6 months, felt great. My schedule has really been working well, increasing mileage one week, and not running too fast, then running the same mileage the following week but increasing speed.

And after that street soccer with the neighbourhood kids. Can't walk anymore now.

9 yesterday and 6.5 this morning. Today I ran out of gas about 2/3 of the way in. I hate when that happens.

I've been running in the 1st-gen Brooks PureConnect for a couple of years, and they aren't readily available anymore. I also have been thinking about a bit more cushion for longer runs, so I picked up the PureCadence 3 this weekend. I'm not really digging them. The wrap tongue isn't my preference, but I guess I could live with that. What's getting me is that my foot is sliding into the toe box on downhills, and if I tie the laces snugly enough to counteract that, then my feet get numb after a few miles.

Any suggestions?

If the sizing is correct and it is only the foot moving and not an issue with the last, try this:

That's how I have them laced. frown.gif

6.2 miles this morning. Nice and slow for the first and last mile but managed to keep the middle 4 miles all under 7:30/minute.

I'm working on a Memorial Day to Independence Day run streak and didn't have time to run before work yesterday and it was supposed to be pouring rain late in the evening so decided to go right after I got home from my office. My wife needed a break from our daughter so I took her with me on my run for the first time ever. We did 2 miles and WOW! - pushing a stroller while jogging is much more difficult than I thought it would be. I probably should have tried this before my daughter was nearly 4 and with an actual jogging stroller instead of a trail stroller. We'll still be doing it again though.

No suggestions on the lacing but I will say I hate the wrap tongue. I have a pair of PureDrift and I love that they are very lightweight and very breathable and I use them most days I go to the track, but I absolutely hate the wrap tongue. It just never feels right to me.

5.0 miles tonite.

I'd say if the lacing doesn't work on the wide toe box or foot slipping, then either a different insert (thicker) or thicker socks if you really want to keep them. I'd try the insert changeout and if that doesn't do it, take the shoes back.
post #10005 of 12849
The insole is integral to the shoe, so no changing it out. I'm going to give them one more try tomorrow. If I can't come to terms with them, I'll take them back this weekend.
