    last night ran 15 miles in 1:37.

    I can see how people would think the garmins are a little absurd, and i was hesitant to get one because i didn't know if i really needed it or would like it. But I loved it the first time i used it and now i couldn't imagine not having one. I try not to rely on it and look at it to often while im running, but its nice to have the instant feedback, and it can be helpful for developing a better sense of pace and distance.

    im going to see if i can work up to my goal of 6 miles in 40 minutes or less.

    right now, i would be at over an hour for 6 miles which is not good.

    About a mile. Soccer game tomorrow though, where I'm sure I'll do a disgusting amount of running.

    Treadmill 2 miles, then 30 minutes of upper body supersets, then one more mile.

    After several years of running I've recently noticed that the thighs in my slimmer-fitting pants are starting to feel pretty constricted.

    4 miles in 31:04. Felt okay, a little surprised to be alert and functional after the hellish weekend of heat and work. Felt good, in fact. [​IMG]

    5K miles in intervals again. Including the breaks, that took just under 21 minutes. Probably same thing tomorrow. The heat and humidity is sapping my will to do any more mileage.

    ^

    What's the breakdown again? Still not sure what this means:

    A little over 5 K in sprints. 2x1 at 6 minute miles. 5x400 m.

    5K interval in <21 min is pretty slick. Captain Slo? [​IMG]

    No, 5 K total. First 2 miles in six minutes apiece, with 38 seconds between them (38 because I am a little OCD). Then, a bit of a break, then four 400 m sprints. Then a half lap warm down.

    Then body weight resistance exercises and weights (low weight, high rep. Put it this way, heaviest I've been lifting is 160 lbs x 12 dumbbell presses.)

    thats not much rest between the miles. I'm guessing the 6min miles isnt a terribly hard effort for you. I honestly think i'd feel worse stopping for 38 seconds than just running the 2 miles continuous.
    How fast are you doing the 400s??

    I never really do anything shorter than 800s (and i rarely run any of those), mainly because im a wimp. I know i probably should if i want to develop some speed, but running on the track hurts my knees and its hard to get myself to do intervals on paved surfaces.

    Anyway, tonight i ran 40 minutes somewhat hard which came to 6.6 miles, then i rested a few minutes, changed shoes and went 30 minutes (4.5 miles) at a slower pace.

    Nah, the 6 minute miles are pretty tough for me. The 38 seconcs are my motivation to finish the first mile [​IMG] I spend half pf those 38 seconds thinking "Oh man, that hurt," and the other half thinking "Again. Then it's just sprints. I do the 400s in 70-72 seconds these days, which is really not great, but I don't have the kick to go faster after the miles. I actually need at least a full 30s (on a good day) between these in order to get any decent time at all. The time between the sprints is probably best described as "troubled". i think that if I lost about 10 lbs, or even 5 lbs, I'd be considerably faster. I was when I was in Boston, but am apparently growing lazy and fat.

    You run fast though. I find it tough to beat 40 minute 10Ks, even on a relatively flat route.
