    7 tough miles this morning, my longest distance in about 4 months. I tried starting early, but by 7:15am the sun was already up and blazing, which slowed my pace a lot.

    This was including opening two gates to get in and out of a small stretch of nature (don't how to call it - some woods and a pasture). And there I met a pig in the wild. Not a wild pig, but I wasn't really expecting it, and I wasn't completely sure if it was just a lost cute-soon-to-be-turned-into-parma-ham type of pig or something fiercer :). I slowed down to walking pace, closely passed it (couldn't really get around it) then slowly started running again, not looking back for the first twenty meters or so. :laugh:. But I am here, so it hasn't killed and eaten me.

    Got in 4.6 miles tonight resulting in a 34.5 mile week. Have a couple of weeks to decide on running a 50K in early October but I can already think of 5 weekends where running will be minimal. I'd like to finish under 5 hours if I did enter it so I don't know. Might be a "what the hell" kind of race and see where it goes.

    I have a pair of Newton Distance and love them. I had heard all the hype and thought they always looked too big and bulky and heavy but decided to finally give them a try last summer. When I went to the store and saw them, they were definitely big, but surprisingly light on my feet and after a quick run around the block decided they were for me. My only complaint is that even the best sale prices I can usually find are still over $100.

    (Though looking just now, it looks like Running Warehouse has a bunch left over from 2011 and 2012 for >$75)

    They are pricey! The company claims that these shoes last longer than most. I hope that this is true.

    Of course, there is no magic shoe--in spite of the hype that all manufacturers have for their products. . But, for me, these shoes encourage me to run with good form. As with any shoe, you still have to do all the work!

    I got dressed to run this morning, then I looked at my training schedule and saw that today is a rare Monday rest day.

    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: 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.

    6.7 miles tonite.

    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.

    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.

    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?
