5 this evening
loving my new Mizunos
yeah, i dont get by by high-schoolers too often really. Most of the hs kid i see at local races go out waaay to fast and then fade after the first mile or less.. plus you dont see alot of them at road races because they are in XC or track season a good chunk of the year.
But then again, sometimes a few top hs runners will show up, which i knew was the case this time, so i didnt even bother trying to keep up. The kid that won ran like 14'30 for 3mi at state... he only (haha!) ran 15'01 at the race yesterday, so he was about a minute ahead of me. The other kid i remembered finishing a little ahead of at a race a couple years ago, but i think he was only 13 at the time! Needless to say, they will probably both be running at a D1 school in a couple years.
And the guy who came in next after me was 51! He actually had finished about a minute and a half ahead of me at a half-marathon a couple weeks ago, so i was determined to reverse that this time around.
Anyway, ran 10 tonight in 1'06'20. Kinda chilly out, low 40s with a slight wind, but it felt a little colder than that because it had rained for most of the day and sprinkled a little during my run.
4 this morning after about an hour of core.
ran 3 this morning, and will run another 4-5 this evening.
Anyone have good experience with 2 a day's?
I did it for time reasons, but hope if has other benefits.
Ran a wonderfu 7kl trail run this past Saturday. Finsihed in 39.04. Not my fastest but the off-road run combined with a surprise climb to the top of an observation tower right after mile 4, slowed me a bit. Still happy with the time and finished 3rd in my brand new age bracker, 40-49.
Years ago in grad school I used to run 3-6 miles in the morning, cycle 20-30 miles in the afternoon, and do weights in the evening. This was my regimen for preparing for centuries on the weekend. I've never run twice in a day, but would imagine it would be fine as long as there is good recovery after each run.
Two a days are alright. If I push too hard on the first run the later (2nd) run is hell by the end. 6 miles around 7min/ea. for me tonight. Crazy how fast you lose marathon shape post marathon. Been fat and lazy lately
Doubling for me is a lot easier than running high miles on singles, but is usually limited by time or some other factor. I love doubles, and am looking forward to starting them back up.
Be sure to get plenty of rest (at least 4 hours) between runs, and eat/drink enough.
Like the double....granted it wasnt that far, but it was some nice running to book end my day.
This morning Im going out for a 2 hour run.
Finally recovered from the secret spot.
A good 6 miles for me this morning.
5 good ones
7 miles today, with a friend I have never run with. Seems we are pretty well matched in pace and distance. Nice to run with someone.
It was cold and foggy in the trails. Nice to put in a good pace before I stuff my tummy with yummy. I have a 7 hour drive ahead......
Anti--Two a days are a great way to manage schedule and get essentially the same training benefit. I've done a lot of 'em.
8 miles this morning, and resumed strength workouts at the Y.
Have a great holiday, everyone.
I ran one mile, worked on core for an hour, then ran 3 miles. Traveled to my first destination for the holidays and proceeded to stuff myself. I feel like I need to run again.
5 miles this morning. 45 minutes. Cold, foggy, damp. But, I will feel less guilty when I ask for that second piece of pumpkin pie.
