Do Dream Miles Count? (Read 339 times)

    Hi everyone, It's pretty quiet in here... Just thought I'd try to liven things up a little... I've had to stop running for a couple weeks due to an injury in my ankle after running the Sharm El Sheikh 1/2 marathon on the 13th of March... Yesterday I started back up by running 3 easy slow miles. There was a very small amount of pain in the ankle still so I didn't push it too hard, and am not running today. This morning however I woke up after having run 12.6 miles. It was quite the dream and I felt like I was running for a long time. Maybe that is why I feel so tired this morning... When I finished the run I wasn't feeling tired and I had felt no pain at all in my ankle... I remember thinking in the dream that this is my long run for the week... Very realistic... I wonder how much benefit you actually get from running dream miles... And no I'm not going to count those miles as actual running miles... but maybe I should create a new exercise called "dream miles"... Big grin Have a great day, Lu
      You are quite a dedicated runner! I can't imagine that I would ever dream about running. Post race is an interesting time. I too just finished a 10k last Sunday, and I am staying up late for a few days, before getting back into the mileage game and having to crawl into bed early everyday.

        Lu, Hope that ankle gets well quickly! Dream miles? I like the concept! :-)

        Live the Adventure. Enjoy the Journey. Be Kind. Have Faith!

          Lu, glad to hear that you're getting back into it. I hope the ankle continues to improve. Two nights ago, I had an almost-running dream: On a golf course, I was hanging onto the back of an SUV that had the hatch up. One of my brothers-in-law suddenly started driving, and I jumped my feet up into the back of the vehicle and held on to the open hatch above my head. When we stopped about a half mile later, I thought, "Shoot, if I would've run along behind instead of hopping my feet in and hanging on, I could have logged more mileage this week." Also, my kids' Wii Olympics game has dream races (and other weird dream events, like 10,000-meter diving); it's not as good as actual running, but it's not bad either. Life is weird.

          Speed my steps along your path, according to your will.

            I hope you heal quickly!! I wish dream miles count, I keep having nightmares about the last 4 miles in my upcoming marathon. Hope it goes better than my head thinks it will... Dead
