    5.3 miles of steady easy running, then picked up the little one and did another mile with him in the morning. The Mrs. did her own mile afterwards.

    Her company is sponsoring a team run for a major 5/10k in Feburary, so we're all registered. This should be fun.

    ^ Good for you, on both counts.


    Didn't run today, played 1.5 hours worth of ultimate frisbee instead. 3 steady miles before going out last night. Perhaps 6 or 7 tomorrow.

    Treadmills = evil

    8+ miles. Sierra foothills trail race in the rain. You won't melt out there, get off the dreadmill and get outside and run.

    4 miles this morning in under 30 minutes. Temperature at 33 degrees. It almost felt too hot--and I was dressed very lightly (or so I thought.) I'm so used to running in the low 20s that I need to get acclimated to the warmer temps. At least most of ice is gone. This won't last.

    Thank you - it was a PR. Looking to break 1:25 when I run the NYC half in March.

    damn you guys must really be great shape... i'm trying to lose about 30 lbs or so this year, just started going to the gym and ran about 2.5m on the treadmill. did a hell of a number on my shins. i'm gonna try and increase the run to about 45 mins soon, but my legs always start to hurt after 5-10 mins on that thing...

    losing weight = high intensity workouts. You don't need to be doing long distance running, especially if you're shins are hurting. Lift weights, low weight, high rep, and give yourself like 60 second rests in between sets.

    On the page back we all mentioned our displeasure towards the 'dreadmill'. If your new to running and overweight, ease yourself into it. If you shins are getting ruined calm it down. In the mean time take advantage of other things at your gym.

    Use the elliptical, the bike, the rowing machine, etc. if running bothers your shins. There are a lot of ways to do cardio without the impact of running.

    A seven mile hilly; it was a good one and at 48 years young I'm getting back to a respectable time and weight which is making me feel confident again.

    Great run. That's around about my PB for a half; or it was 10 years ago. My best 10k is 34.35 when I was 36 but now I just train for fun: I'm getting too old [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Awesome job Myles!!!

    10 miles last night in 1:21:08. I've been working on my negative splits. I hope it pays off in 2 weeks when I attempt a sub 4 hour 26.2.
