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

    Blech. should have been 17 miles. Ran the first 7.8 with a friend and dropped her at her car and set off for a second loop. It had been 50F and spitting/misting a bit. On the second loop, it started to rain, and then to pour, and the wind picked up and the temp dropped.  I was soaking wet, shivering, and miserable with my shoes full of water and feeling so heavy. I passed my car at 16.43 miles and decided that was more than enough.  Of course it quit raining while I was driving home.


    Right on Hereford...

      My first hill repeats and they were excellent! I did 4 x 20 on a 12% grade over 3.6 mile course.

       

      Why am I having such a hard time figuring out what this means? It either sounds super easy or insanely hard.

       

      4 x 20 seconds?

      4 seconds x 20?

      4 x 20 meters?

       

      OR

       

      4 x 20 km?

      4 minutes x 20?

      4 x 20 minutes?

       

      What am I missing?

         Planetölogy Cutting the grass!!?! Wow, ours is still under 5" of snow.

         

        I just finished a fan-frigin-tastic 10 mile LSD! Gorgeous clear blue skies, sun glinting off the snow, temps hovering around 45. Mmm...tis good to be alive this morning in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains!

         

        I usually try to hold out until April with the mowing but spring is early in the PNW this year.  Great job on the 10-miler!

         

        I did four progressively -paced miles on the TM this AM and took DD snow-tubing this afternoon.  I walked the hills rather than use the tow rope so I logged it as cross-training.

        One of these days is none of these days.

          Dakota RR Sorry re: "4 x 20 seconds?" Yes, 4- 20 second sprints up a 12% grade over 3.6 miles

          Planetölogy Nice TM work and great time spent with DD! Big grin

                Awesome -- I saw a fox! The critter ran across the street right in front of me about 30 yards away. Suburban tree-lined streets are nice but don't usually afford wildlife viewing so this was a treat.

                      7.6 miles down to the lake and back with much of it in the rain.  Followed up with a 10-minute medicine ball routine.  Time for lunch.

                        Took MrMattM's advice and ran an easy 5 miler today, in sunny Arizona where we are visiting my mom. Needed the easy run after yesterday's PR half marathon!  Anticipating a poor mileage week on vacation this week.  5 weeks to go to my marathon.


                        And in the end...

                          Had a great time down @ the Roaring River in Cassville, MO.  Camping, hiking, and fishing... and warm weather.  That's over with, though... today I ran a nice, relaxing 5 miler through large, wet snowflurries... Big grin

                            Matt So glad you had fun camping! And, yup, I hear ya...re: "relaxing 5 miler through large, wet snow-flurries." We got those too. About 5" worth.Big grin I did pound out 3 miles in the sloppy-slippy-slushy-icy mess this morning.

                                Where???? Big grin It was 18 degrees out on the Berkshire Hills this morning. Still...a great hill repeats run with 2 x 60 second sprints on 8% uphill grade and 2 x 60 second sprints on a 5% uphill grade for a total of 3.6 miles....
