    I had low expectations for this morning's 5k, but ended up running 16:51 for a PR.
    8 thus far for the day.

    10mi at 90% effort in 80% humidity and 80 degrees, dead calm winds. Occasional brief walk breaks help to manage the heat stress.

    15 easy today. 7 min pace most of the way.
    Easy long run at the end of a planned down week. Tomorrow serious marathon specific training starts.

    Ran 3 miles this morning around 5 a.m. in nearly total darkness in southern Indiana. Here for meetings, and the resort is gorgeous but in the middle of no where. There are excellent trails here well suited for running, but it was too scary-dark for me to venture onto them; thus, I ran on the place's multiple long brick-paved driveways that were very dimly lit but mostly pitch black :fu: . I was startled several times by raccoons, deer, and little critters along the way. High humidity to boot. Overall, a decent run, but not in the best conditions.

    killer tempo tonight - 1 mile up/ 7 miles at HM pace ( 6:05-6:15)/2 down
    Felt really good to run at a fast but sustainable pace.
    I can feel myself getting back into shape, and I am closer to my ideal weight than I have been since San Diego.
    Feelin lucky to get to run.

    I usually go two times a week for a 3-4 miles run. Usually directly after work which is much easier on an emtpy stomach!

    7.25 on Monday, mix of too-soft trail that was like running on sand, and concrete alongside the beach. Yes, I'm on vacation! Ran maybe .75 barefoot on the beach later that day with my son, but I think I strained something in my foot. This was great for walking and standing around Disneyland today...

    To the guys who run exorbitant miles like 5-10 etc. how long have you been running for?

    I can only manage 2 miles at the moment and there are days where I get sore calves like shit and can't continue and have to walk the remainder. Really gives me the shits.

    its all about build up slowly and surely you end up building a "base" (pretty much means aerobic capacity as well as bone, muscle, and tendon strength). sometimes there's certain personal barriers you need to break and can be more of a mental thing - this is easily solved by either running with a partner/group or better yet joining a race and progressively longer races down the road.

    You may think that you can only finish the 3k/2miles and thats it... but thats actually a great start! Think about how far two miles is when you drive (its actually pretty far especially in the city).

    Again you may think you can only pull off the present 2 miles... but I can bet that if were to join a 5k race - with all the other runners and crowds at the finish... you'd finish just fine and with no problems... see you already proved that you can run more than the present 2 miles? next try a 4mile race or 8k race... then a 10k... ect...

    You don't have to break those pesky mile/distance milestones by yourself... but even when you do you feel like a million bucks afterwards.

    I got in just over 8 miles this morning starting around 4:45 a.m. Usually this time of year I don't pass too many other runners on my morning runs because it's already in the 70s with humidity levels to match but it was a much more comfortable morning and I counted about 30 other runners along my route... the most I've seen in a long time.
