    My dog got off his leash today…must’ve ran half a mile chasing him down. It doesn’t sound like much, but considering I was sprinting the whole time…thought one of my lungs might have burst

    Tried for 12 on my long run today, but crapped out around 9 and couldn't go any more. Out of nowhere I hit a wall and felt like I had concrete in my shoes. It was a little disappointing, but I'll go for it again next Sunday.

    I ran 5.25 this evening. It's my last training run at home before my big race next weekend. We're flying to Hawaii Tuesday morning. The run portion of the race is on Sunday (double marathon). Should be fun!

    First run in 2 weeks was the NYRR 4 miler in Central Park on Sunday. Ran it in 25:07. It's amazing how good it felt after taking a few weeks off. By body def needed the rest.

    Got in 5 on Saturday, first run since my race, had to let my feet heal up. Felt good enough that I signed up for a Thanksgiving morning 10k this morning.

    anyone ever run a race without a watch/timer? Just signed up for a 10K next week and I can't find my nike sportsband anywhere. I'd rather not buy another one since I try to go at a natural pace during my regular runs and don't care much for tracking performance, but I'm wondering if it won't annoy me during the race when my competitive instincts take over (hopefully) and I try to beat last year's time

    Nothing worth doing is ever easy, right? ; )

    I'm really looking forward to jumping in the warm water by the Kailua Pier tomorrow afternoon... My race starts on Friday and ends Sunday. Three days of sheer triathlon madness around big island.

    4.9 miles today. Feeling good.


    Was it the distance or fueling? I usually carry a gel with me. Rarely need it, but on that odd occasion when blood sugar drops or energy level is shot, it comes in handy.

    Absolutely, we'd still be living in caves if people only did things they knew they could!

    "crisis" averted, I found my sportband in a drawer at work (?).

    last night 8.36mi @ 6'51". Temp still in the low 60s at 9pm, this might be the best time of the year for running here.

    I got in 5 miles this morning... on the treadmill.


    I never wear a watch or timer when I run in races. I also never really come close to winning ever races so take that for what it's worth. :satisfied:

    I'm pretty sure it was fueling and not distance....I completed 10 and 11 mile runs in the past few weeks with no problems, so I didn't think 12 would give me any trouble. I was running slow on purpose as well, to make sure I could finish the run. I wasn't carrying a gel with me, but like Fueco said, my body was telling me something was definitely wrong, so I just stopped instead of trying to push through it. I had more than a few adult beverages the previous day, so that could be to blame :devil: I'm going to try again next Sunday, and I think I'll fare much better that time around.

    Better news today - finished 6 miles at 9:03 pace, which I think is almost 10 seconds per mile faster than my previous best at 6 miles.

    Fuck it.
    Tried running again after almost 2 weeks without due to ITBS shit. Daily foam rolling and stuff.
    Didnt work.
    Was back home after almost 30mins, knees hurt again.
