    5k. Tweaked my knee yesterday jumping on a trampoline, but it felt fine during the run. As soon as I stopped, though, ouch. Ice and ibuprofen...

    Finally!!!!!!!

    I ran 3.5 miles today, albeit on a dreadmill for safety sake at a very slow pace.
    Felt really shitty at first and my ankle was not really happy, however, after about 12 minutes, I felt great.
    SO, IM BACK OFFICALLY.

    the NYRR 8k in march 2010 was in 35ºF, 40mph winds, and sheets of rain. There were whole miles where I was running alone (because I showed up 30min late....


    I was thinking it would've been fun trying to run in a hurricane... but this irene looks legit... might actually be scary out there..

    A very enjoyable 7 miles this morning. From the time I started to when I stopped, I felt terrific.

    14 miles today...

    currently contemplating wether to run my half-marathon fasted or (what) to eat prior the competition. i normally do all my workout fasted these days (even the intervalls) so i am kinda adapted to running on fat. i tried a pre-workout porridge on thursday and it was fine (e.g. the digestion) but physically, the run didnt feel too good. other than that, people told me that i need to fill my liver glycogen pool in order to be able to maintain my pace. in regards to digestion speed a banana pre-running would do the job, wont it? it takes around 90mins to digest so that would be just right for my final spurt...
    what d'you guys think?

    I know for marathons it is important to carb-load the night before and taper well so that your body's glycogen stores are as high as possible. With a half, when glycogen depletion is less of a factor it is probably more important to get something your body is really used to. I always eat a gel 15-20 minutes before a race and every 7 miles or so during because they contain sugar/salt/potassium for fuel/hydration efficiency.

    NyRanger - you are a beast. I love to hear that.

    20 today at 7:30 pace with 1300 odd feet of climbing and 85+ temps. By far and away the fastest I have ran on that track, and 90 miles for the week. I am stoked

    I got in a nice 5 miles before the sun was up this morning. I love the weather this time of year!

    I also ran this morning before the sun came up. It was nice and crisp out, perfect for running. I ran 4.5 miles before having to stop to walk the dog and get dressed for work, I wanted to do more.

    4 miles today, again on the dreadmill. Felt really good at a 9 min mile pace. I know I shouldnt push it, but I think I will try some easy trails tomorrow or Wed. My peroneal tendon is a little pissy, but otherwise all is well.
    I signed up for a race in a month and a half, so we will see what happens.
