Post Your Small, or Big, Victory For The Day! (Read 5651 times)

    OK -- for serious now.

     

    Ran some strong 800m intervals (5x) in the middle of a 10-mile run during the middle of a 101 degree day. And it felt good and right.

       

      Purdey pleased?

       

       

      Aahhh - just got that - it probably only works really well if you speak with an American accent. 

       

      Well played though anyway.

          Temps like that are exactly why I'm a pre dawn runner.

           

          Great job and how much weight were you down when you got back...I'm sure you probably sweated out at least 5 lbs. 


          ...---...

            this is a great thread,  should be weekly, maybe every Monday after weekend races/runs.  what does everyone think??

             

            Yep - good thread. Bares repeating or continuation (if not repeating, maybe a sticky).

               Right around there, yeah. I drank quite a bit at the 8-mile mark, so the weight loss didn't look too terribly drastic.

               

              Purdey --

                    Those are some serious numbers you are posting. Good job.

                Had the longest run (time wise) of my life today. Ran for 3 hours and 14 minutes, and covered 23.4 miles on a very hilly course. My 10 year old son rode his bike along side.  I was surprised he wanted to ride for that long and for that distance given the run started at 5:00 am.


                Consistently Slow

                  13 mile run today. 3 months in a row with over 100 miles. The last time was May,June and July 2008.

                  Run until the trail runs out.

                      Didn't run today but I went ROCK CLIMBING for the FIRST time in my entire 55 years!  I was always too fat and in my mind, I just couldn't put myself through the embarrassment of hanging up there in all my 200+ pounds.  Not so anymore.  Scratch this one off the Bucket List!!

                        It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                          This morning I fell 2.5k in to my run.  Scraped hands, knees and side of my leg.  But no serious injury so I got up and carried on and finished my 20k run Smile
                            I survived a long night at work with super stiff and twinging legs after my 2nd 20 miler yesterday.. and broke 20 days consecutive running, which is a big milestone for me because even in my hardcore high school XC days it was 5 1/2 days a week (1/2 is for the easy saturday jog-around), albeit 5 of those days had 2 workouts each.

                              I ran my own personal half marathon yesterday (13.11 miles)
