How many miles did you run today?

So the watch bezel/face of my Garmin 45 popped off. I popped it back on and resealed it but don't know how long it may last. Seems like the lifespan of my electronics is right around 2 years for anything that I run with.

What are other people using these days? Coros is newer and seems to be a great deal at $199 for the PACE 2. Garmin has the newer Garmin 55 but the Coros seems to have better battery life which would be nice. The Fenix series would be fun but hard to convince my wife I need to spend $599 on a watch...
I recently replaced my 45 with a Fenix 6 pro, and it was definitely worth it for me. The increased battery life is really welcome, but it also has a lot more customization available to fine tune it to your needs. The biggest reason I got this one though, was the fact that it also has the golf gps included, which is wonderful.

20.6 miles on the cyclocross bike, mostly on gravel. I got my first flat in ages (a front flat, thanks to a goathead thorn) at around 10.5 miles, otherwise I would’ve ridden another five miles.

I had LASIK done on both eyes yesterday at 1pm, so I missed my usual evening workout. By the time my eyes stopped burning/watering it was about 7pm and I generally head to bed around 8:30. I’ll have to make it up tonight. The strength training has changed my whole game.

While I felt great on Monday/Wednesday with my strength training, it really drains the legs for running. It is usually the day after when I can feel it most during a run. For instance, today I could not get my legs to run the bigger hills which are usually not a problem. I could blame lack of coffee and food in the system but my legs were not wanting to cooperate.

I think you lift more frequently/longer than I do and I’m sure you get more vert on a weekly basis. The amount of fatigue your carrying is likely higher than mine. My lifting is pretty basic, just 60 minutes after my harder runs (1 speed workout + long run). I’ll focus on a few major compound movements and then spend the rest of the time on a core circuit.

Lower Split
• 8x sets of barbell back squats
• 8x sets of conventional dead lift
• Core: half bosu-ball planks, butterfly kicks, Russian twists, uniwheel roll outs (x3)

Upper Split
• 5x standing barbell rows
• 5x standing overhead press
• 5x dumbbell bench press
• Same core routine

Close to same routine here except for core and I only spend an hour at most each day. I alternate 5x5 or 4x6 depending on amount of time I have. I do Squat, Bench, Row on one day then Squat, OHP, DL on the other. Not putting close to your weight up though :)

That’s a lot of work! More than I can handle. Way to cowboy up.

There’s always someone stronger/faster…but I think we can agree that no one jerks it quite like @Texasmade

25 miles on the cyclocross bike. I rode the 3.6 miles to the top of the hill and back (mostly gravel), then rode the rest with a friend who is racing Boulder Ironman 70.3 this weekend. Her Zone 4 efforts left me in the dust, but generally it was good to catch up with a friend I hadn’t seen for six years.

This has to be the most comical event in the Olympics

Jogging with 2 friends. We were all pretty tired and sore, which was partly comedic and comforting.

@sugarbutch - I don’t understand race walking…but I do know a few people who are serious/passionate about it and they really get offended when their sport is mocked. I think people get into the sport because it’s easier on the body than running but requires a lot of technique? I dunno. Apparently it was THEE sport back in the 1800’s. Shrug. I saw the men’s 50k and it looked painful to me.
