    I mostly switch between altra's (0 drop) and free havens (4mm drop). The Fk frees actually have a larger drop than im used too

    I run in an 8mm drop shoe. Anything less and it is painful. Unless you really need a super minimal shoe, stay away. I run in New Balance 890s and have continued with no foot soreness for quite a while. When I tried to throw in some 4mm drop shoes all sorts of problems started.

    I got in 5 miles this morning. It was a heatwave at 45º at 4:45 a.m.! It's now already down to about 38º and we are supposed to get about 5 more inches of snow tonight. Just when I thought I'd finally be able to see my lawn again... :fu:

    Taking advantage of a brief winter thaw--temperature, 36 degrees--I ran 8 miles this morning--dodging potholes, remaining icy spots, and tundra. I just heard that we are expecting 6 inches of snow within the next 24 hours. "The Winter of Our Discontent"

    4.1 Monday easy run.


    I really like core 2 days / week. I've got the McMillan DVD set and #2 & #3 are great. Hamstrings, abs, lower back, but, and hip flexors both inside and out. It has helped me more than 5 mile easy run would have for a 6th day of running.

    [quote name="Michigan Planner" url="/t/69386/how-many-miles-did-you-run-today/9600#post_6987407 I did however try running across a snowy field and discovered that the snow was much deeper than I anticipated and sunk in up to my waist a few times. Like an idiot I tried to continue powering through it rather than turn back and go back to the trail.[/quote]

    Are you sure you didn't fall asleep watching the Rocky sequel where he was in Russia training... :happy:

    5.5 hilly trail miles yesterday afternoon. Warm day! It was 77 when I got back in my car afterward.

    The weather has been insane! Late nights and work have kept me off the road since Monday. But the schedule is clear tomorrow!

    Due to (another) blizzard, I was stranded in a hotel. I ran 4 miles on a dreadmill. I'd rather sit in the dentist's chair!

    7 miles this morning. It was still only in the 20s and close to the single digits with the windchill and the side streets are mostly unplowed from Wednesday's 6" of snow but I counted 8 other runners out there this morning. I cannot remember the last time I saw 2 other runners in the morning, let alone 8! I think we've just given up on this winter by now. I know I did - I didn't bother to shovel my driveway after this last round. I don't care if the mailman passes us up.

    3.1 after work today. Keeping it simple and trying to stick with 2 small runs per week while doing other random workouts on other days...balance and stability, core, plyometrics, weights, etc.

    20ish trail miles today. Pretty warm out there but thankfully the last 4-5 miles had a coastal breeze to keep me cooled down.
