    What happened during mile 5 dude [​IMG] (8) 6 mile repeats is pretty beast--what are you doing in between miles?

    For me, just 5 with friends at a leisurely pace. Tomorrow: http://www.nyrr.org/races/2010/r1031x00.asp Overambitious (read: impossible for me) goal is sub 30.

    5 followed by a terrible workshop about injuries w. a podiatrist/runner in Vibrams.
    Was he just shilling for Vibrams or was it something else?

    Not at all, he was just a poor presenter trying to talk cogently without an outline. The subjects ran the gamut from tai chi, chinese herbs, forefoot running, etc. Pseudoscienctific mumbo jumbo. We did find out that a runner friend has like a 2 inch discrepancy in leg length, which is funny, but she can still run a 1:26 half...

    I ran 6 km today and my left knee feels weird. What's better? Longer runs 3 times/week. Or shorter runs 5 times/week?

    11.8 yesterday with about 900 ft of elevation gain throughout (3 challenging hills that do about 200-250 over a half mile). it's a great feeling to push through and miles 9-11 end up feeling better than miles 3-5 (when i almost said fuck it and felt like quitting).

    will attempt 18 mile bike/3-4 mile run brick later on today.

    ha.. i hadnt even though about that, that besides that fifth one each was faster than the previous. I was getting tired for the last couple miles though, i just pushed myself a little harder for the last one [​IMG].
    In between i just walk about 200m and stretch a little.

    and good job on the 5-mile race!

    anyway, 11.2 tonight for me in 1:13:42. Pretty cool and windy out, stared feeling pretty chilly towards the end.

    I think it depends on how you view the excercise. I was running 5K (3.2 miles) everyday (literally, doing the alleged Steve McQueen thing where I ran Monday-Sunday rain, shine, thunderstorms, even on Christmas, crazy shit like that) and I just got burnt out. I switched to 5k three days a week with a two mile cool down jog. Now, im back to doing the 5K in approx 21-22 minutes. If you do it everyday, you do get a little tired after a while (not physically, more mentally as your mind begins to treat the running as a "chore"). I suggest varying it. Some months do a 3 day a week thing where you run more and then other months do a shorter run 5X a week. Just how I do it anyway!

    4 lazy recovery miles, just enough to fend off no-running guilt.

    oops, forgot to post the weekend mileage. Anyway a friend was getting on to me about doing more speedwork, so that was the focus of the weekday runs, and I was getting antsy about the low mileage, so Saturday was 6.7 miles at 51.42, and Sunday was 9.3 miles at 1:11:05.
