    Yesterday did 15 miles in 2:08, the farthest I have ever run.
    I felt after 13 miles I had nothing left. I ate some GU at 7, finished all the water I had with at 9, I have no idea how you all run a Marathon!
    I have a few half marathons I have signed up for this year, goal is to do it in 1:45.

    We should start a weekly mileage thread.


    heh - reminds me of my first 15. Holy Cow - it was July or August, and I ran without gel but I think I had water, and...I got home, sat on the doorstep for about 10 minutes and put the hose over my head as I slowly worked up the energy to open the front door.

    The thing is, your next 15 won't be nearly as hard, and then you'll go to 18, and your first one will be epic WTF-ness, but your next 18 won't suck so badly, and then you'll crack 20 or 21 and wonder what exactly was so hard about 15.

    Today - I recuperated from the 10k, and also a lot of back-yard work. Tomorrow, though - back to the mileage.

    I'm very happy to learn that my usual route is 4.25 miles rather than the 2.5 I thought it was. Lots of hills though.

    I ran 1.5 miles today, as I do 4 days a week in training for Army recruitment test. Need 10:30 mins currently about 12:04 although I did a 11.30 the other week.

    Btw, 'why' - Do I know you from TSR?

    I have no idea what TSR is, so probably not.

    Some inspiring runs in here lately!

    Sunday morning: 17 miles in 2:25:36.

    Freaking love my Garmin Forerunner - making me a more conscientious and efficient runner.

    Mile 1 pace: 8:19
    Slowest mile (mile 10 - big hill): 9:20
    Fastest mile (Mile 14): 7:57
    Mile 17 pace: 8:04
    Avg. Pace: 8:34
    Calories burned: 1687


    Yeah, the Garmin Forerunners rule.
    Whats cool is after a year, you can see all the miles and calories you have burned.

    Have you used your Virtural Partner?

    Not yet, but I think I'm going to give it a try on Thursday for my 6 mile tempo run.

    good stuff lately...

    a brisk 6.6 miles today into a nice strong headwind for more than half of the run, but temps were in the 40's so NICE! Time? A little over 40 minutes! getting back into race shape.

    7.7 miles. I planned on doing 10 (for my weekly long run... lol i know its only 10miles but still thats long for me) but started cramping up. I forgot that I worked out pretty heavy before the planned long run and also ran a race yesterday. Its a scary feeling cramping up but at least I know the probable reasons.

    6.2 tonight in 41:57.

    everyone talking of 17 and 18 mile runs is making me want to get back to doing longer runs again... i haven't ran over 8 miles in like 6 months now.

    I think you would be an incredible marathoner.

    How about if we all plan on having SF meet up at the April 2013 for the Boston Marathon? That will give us 2 years to qualify (not that a lot of you gentlemen need two years, but I sure do). Just thinking out loud, but here are the qualifying times:

    QUALIFYING TIMES*
    AGE GROUP MEN WOMEN
    18-34 3hrs 10min 3hrs 40min
    35-39 3hrs 15min 3hrs 45min
    40-44 3hrs 20min 3hrs 50min
    45-49 3hrs 30min 4hrs 00min
    50-54 3hrs 35min 4hrs 05min
    55-59 3hrs 45min 4hrs 15min
    60-64 4hrs 00min 4hrs 30min
    65-69 4hrs 15min 4hrs 45min
    70-74 4hrs 30min 5hrs 00min
    75-79 4hrs 45min 5hrs 15min
    80 and over 5hrs 00min 5hrs 30min
    *An additional 59 seconds will be accepted for each age group time standard. For example, a net time of 3:50:59 will be accepted for a 42-year-old woman.

    Right now I would qualify if I was a 45 year old woman [​IMG]. Worst case scenario is that I train like a madman and don't qualify, but end up in the best shape of my life. What do you guys think? Anybody in?

    I am thinking - long term - I train to race the 2011 half, shoot to get under 95 minutes, and then leverage that into the 2012 marathon, when I'll be 40 and under the 3:20 qualifier.

    Also: the 2012 Houston marathon is also the Olympic Trials, and should be an epic production.

    today - btw - 2.6 miles, spent most of my morning studying Accounting.

    I ran 18.1 miles on Saturday in about 2:20; then went home to upload the info to my nike+ account and my ipod (nano) shorted or something, and lost/ deleted the run. Of course it couldn't have been a 5k that I lost.

    Has anyone else ever had this problem of losing runs with their Ipod?


    Yes. Make sure you END the run.

    I've had it happen to me twice. I hit pause instead of ending the run and when the Nano went to sleep, the run was lost!

    Good deal - I'll will be shooting for a 95 minute half on Memorial Day this year.

    The 2012 Houston Marathon sounds like a great race to PR. My goal is to break the 3:45 mark at the Long Beach Marathon in October.
