My last run was.... (Read 1252 times)

    Might be my first shot at joining the more miles than degrees club 

     

    That is awesome, I have never heard that one before but will be my new goal at some point this winter. I may start working towards it, by joining the more miles than wind chill degrees club, should be achievable today....

      Did a little over 10 miles in snow and 30+ miles per hour winds. Running club mates helped make the run enjoyable. Due to get down to -15c here later this week (ick).

        Hey everyone...Today was a fartlek day, 9.75 miles total, with 4x5min (6:09, 6:07, 6:06, 6:03 pace).  Being that I'm not a math major, I accidentally did 6 minutes instead of 5 for the 3rd interval, but no big deal.  I was debating whether to just run today easily or do the fartlek, but I'm really happy I made the choice I did because I felt great the whole run.  Tomorrow's run will be at recovery pace though, for safety's sake.  I got in 84 miles for the week, which I think may actually be a mileage PR for me. Next week will be in the 80s as well, then I'll take a cutback week.

         

        DaveP...I think I'll have a good shot at the miles/degrees club on Tues and Wed. Anything under 10 degrees and I have a really good shot.

         

        Jimbow...nice work in the tough conditions. I lucked out that our winds weren't as strong as had been forecasted today.

            This thread's going well.

            I made more miles than degrees/wind chill on Christmas Day this season. 11 miles, 8 degrees.  I did 3.1 miles at -6 last winter, but it hasn't been that cold yet.

             

            27°  F this morning at 8:30 for a slow 5.3 miles. 53-1/2 minutes. I rested last week, didn't run a step, and gained some weight (hit my goal weight going UP this time). Now on to building long miles again for a 50K.

                    Hi All

                    Today's run was altered. I planned on 9.5. Had to jump off at 1.85m before I Al Roker'd myself. Resumed run for a total of 6.33m in almost exactly 10/min pace. Which happens to be OldCoyotes slow pace. Big grin I was thinking of So-Im-a-Runners fartleks, and tried those in my own way. TM was at 5.9, bumped it to 6.3 and 6.4 on respective 5 min intervals. Kept the incline at 3.0 for first 4 miles, then needed a break. So-Im-A-Runner and TeaOlive where do you put in food and drink in the log? I cant even get my runs into RA logs yet. I use NIKE+ running and MapMyRun to log my runs automatically, is there a way to connect either of those to RA?

                     

                    OldCoyote- Good luck on the 50K training. Have a race date?

                    Melody - I am signed up for the 26.6 race - At least that is what it comes out to when I trace the route. Maybe its only 26.2 - I asked them for 2 posters for my work. If they send me 2, Im putting one in a frame as my first marathon. The other one can get grubby from people's hands in the hall.  - Im hoping to run again tomorrow, LSD since today I changed it up a little and didnt reach my distance goal.

                      Tea olive has hers as a run category in her log, so it's not like a food log. You can make notes in your workouts on your log here though. There actually is a way to upload your runs straight from Garmin....unfortunately I don't know how to help you there. I'm glad you were inspired by my workout Smile. That's a great way to add some faster running without having it be too hard on the body. Nice job!

                          Hi team! I had lovely, strong 5 mile run on a blustery 40 degree morning in my beautiful Berkshire Mountains today. I made it into the more miles than degrees club with 9.5 points (4 miles on a -3 degrees morning and 2.5 miles on a 0 degree morning) DaveP MI, its a thread on this site here but it seems pretty quiet, Maybe we can revive it. Big grin

                            Melody,

                            I did 12 miles this morning in 18 degrees, so not close. But the windchill was -1 thanks to a 27mph wind, so it felt like I should have earned some kind of points. I cannot say it was too pleasant, but I am stupid enough to give "the club" a try anyway, if it gets cold enough. If I do, I will definitely post it!

                              that's a lot of laps!  Have you ever ran at first landing? I ran at Trashmore today. Never been to First Landing myself.

                               

                              I did six miles today. Ran the one hill in our area once. It's a former land fill called Mt. Trashmore. I took the long route up the hill instead of the steeper incline. Winded me a bit!  Felt good though. Weather was beautiful for January. Back to January weather on Tuesday though.

                                13 Miles Sunday morning around the neighborhood. Great weather, rolling hills, avg pace 8:33.
