    Roundabout 7-8miles, crescendo (= I got faster during the run).
    Going to do 4x2000m (1.2miles) intervals tomorrow, hope the weather is going to be alright...

    1.5. Got about .75 into my weekly long run when I realized that I had a meeting thirty minutes away, starting in thirty minutes. Fortunately, other attendees were running late and it got pushed back by half an hour. More meetings all day tomorrow, so I'm not sure when that long run is going to happen...

    :fu:

    sugarbutch- I hate when that type of thing happens, it really spoils a run.
    omphalos- thats a solid pace. Was that a tempo/hard effort?

    9 this morning and 11 tonight with a workout for me.
    Took monday off, just needed the rest. Was first off day in 2.5 weeks.
    I am running 5k's the next two weekends, one for place and one for time, and am not sure what I am going to do about my mileage.
    Probably more doubles early in the weeks, and easy stuff for the 2 days before the races.

    Been there, done that. 8mins per interval. Seem like the sub 1h30min half-marathon is going to work out fine for me :nodding:

    5.5 miles with 5 - 1/2 mile intervals thrown in, trying to work on my speed a bit. It seems to help my form.

    What do y'all do about shin splints? Every time I start getting into a race training program a dull ache happens in my tibiae after about a month. I only run every other day to try to ease this.

    I really want to do the local half iron distance triathlon again this september but am scared I am going to have to try to turn it into an aquabike.

    Can't actually do anything about it. Don't increase your running volume / intensity too fast (excuse my english). A rule of thumb is to not increase the runned miles per week by more than 10%. Maybe you started off too fast?
    Another thing is orthopaedic... Do you run in the right shoes? Did you have a biomechanical analysis of your running technique? Do you exercise enough for core strength?

    It's only the obvious, I know. It's like calling for computer support and getting the advice to reboot :confused:

    I had custom orthotic inserts made, then took them with me to shop for shoes. All of my chronic pain issues have gone away, and I'm running twice as far as I did before. Speaking of which:

    9. Warmed up for a mile, then ran the remaining 8 only 2s off my PR 10k pace. I felt like I was running instead of jogging. Phenomenal.

    11 last night easy (around 80 minutes)
    10 this morning at about 7 minute pace, and will run again tonight.
    Trying to get to 90 miles for the week.

    Wondering what you guys do for core performance (especially those aiming for half-marathon or marathon)?
    Exercises and workout cues would be appreciated, mostly body-weight exercises though!
