    Ran the Hot Chocolate 15k yesterday, not a great time (~1:18 with 2 minutes to let my GF catch up so we could cross the line together), but was a good distance run. Great course, and I think I ate 8 snickers afterwards.

    I've cut back to running 3 days per week for the past 2 weeks while increasing my tempo. My knees are responding great and my times are improving!

    Last night: 13.1 miles in 1:48:12 [​IMG]

    4 miles with a stop every mile to do 10 pushups & squats. Temp: 32 degrees, no wind (Thank God!) Beautiful moon in the West. Running in the early morning is inspirational.

    2 miles in 17:40. I hurt my knee a few weeks ago and am working my way back up to my standard 5k in 28 mins (and then hopefully more). Shin splints have killed me; I was only able to run 1.5 miles and 1.7 miles with pain on Sunday and Monday. Took yesterday off and was able to do 2 easily today but didn't want to overexert. Wondering if I should run tomorrow or just bike.

    5 miles this morning in 38 min. Coming back from nearly a month of not much running due to shin splints and felt pretty good today. Ran a 5k 2 weekends ago and blew up with shin splints after the first mile and hobbeled my way through through the 2nd before the pain subsided and I was able to run the last mile and a bit in under 6 min. Final time on the 5k was 20:38

    5.3 in 39 min

    Quick question for those of you who post in this thread regularly. Do you use any sort of training logs? Or use a device such as garmin or nike +?

    5.3 miles in 42:51, not a bad run today.

    As for using training helps: Mrs. T keeps buying Nike + for me, but I've never been motivated to use it. Also have two Polar HRMs but never quite got into them. I do use a watch with lap timer.

    Alright well since I did get one response I thought I would just throw this site out there that I use. It is pretty simple, you just put in your mileage and time and weight and it gives you your calories burned and average pace during your run. It then saves all your workouts so you can track your progress. And if you want to get more technical with it you can sync it with your nike + or garmin, or they even have an app that uses your iphone as a gps. The site is www.strands.com and all of their services are free.

    ^^ you know, I just like to run, and hate to over-think it. I tried HRM training but it made me slow and tentative in my runs, and my heart never really slowed down much anyway.

    The only real aspect of training that I really regulate is keeping a ceiling on my weekly volume, because I can't really afford to have something go sideways on me this close to race-day.

    I run with Nike+ (though I wear Saucony sneakers, they make them with a pouch for the chip now) and I have to say it's been very helpful for me in tracking my speed and miles I log each week. The new version also reminds you how much (or little) you've been running which is a helpful motivator.

    If you go running on the same basic routes on a regular basis, you can always use www.mapmyrun.com to see what the distance is and track it that way.

    I'm definitely ready to start running and it must start soon. Nothing fits anymore and I'm not planning on a having wardrobe overhaul. What do I need to get me going? Any advice?

    Legs. Get started. Like...now. You know how to run. Go run. Ask questions about details when you know what the details are.
