    Recovering from an infected corn...i normally clock 20-30 km a week, should I now bike instead for the time being?

    Biking and the elliptical were my substitutes for running during my 4-week recovery from a foot injury. It worked out pretty well although I couldn't always get my heart rate up as fast or high as I can with running.

    3 miles earlier this afternoon. I wasn't really into it, so I stopped at 3.

    3.5 shakeout today with 5 strides at race pace (100 - 300 meters).
    Dealing with JetBlue at the moment to change my Boston reservations. Would not be a problem if their hold music wasn't awful, awful soft rock.

    6 this morning in what passes for a downpour here in SF. Hoping to avoid water damage, I tucked my iPhone in my pocket and ran without monitoring my pace. Ended up right on the fast end of my range for this distance.

    I love running in the rain.

    +1 for running in the rain...

    I did an 11.5 mile hilly trail run this afternoon. I figure about 2200 feet of climbing, and the sort of mud that you slide in. Good times. I almost bit it once, but caught myself with my other foot. It didn't start raining in the south bay until I was almost finished. It was sure windy out in the hills though!

    4Miles.

    My lunaglide's got holes today (dunno why. Aging?) and I had to throw them away.

    What are some running shoes for a dude with underpronation? Only recently (Since February) I have started thinking about running as a healthy habit, and taking it seriously.

    My friend tells me rule of thumb is that the uglier the shoes are, the better. Does this mean that I have to give up those fancy Free's and Lunar's?

    Ceoceo: I would go to your local running store and try on a bunch of different shoes before you buy.

    Carlsbad 5k in 21:40. I was hoping for a sub 21. Maybe next time.

    Carlsbad 5000 today in 16:46. A PR for me !!!!!!!!!!!!!! also on a windy day.

    Quevola - the wind really sucked during your race. Almost everyone I know who ran the masters div. missed their goals. It was still windy by the time I ran, but probably 40% less. I still need to total up the weeks miles. Not very many, but the pre boston taper madness starts today!

    5 miles followed by an hour or so of weights and core. An easy and enjoyable run and workout.

    Was down in FL for the weekend, got in 14.2 miles in 1:40:07 on Saturday and 13.77 in 1:38:38 on Sunday, total elevation CHANGE for the 2 days runs.....17 feet. Not exactly ideal for WS training, bu running in the heat felt good.
