      (((((((AprilRunner))))))) Excellent eight-miler.

       

      GOOD LUCK, MBC!!!!!!!

       

      Robert, fantastic 4.5. I just do what I need to do. If I didn't exercise so much, my @$$ would be the size of New Hampshire.

       

      Jay, 21.1? Are you training for another marathon?

       

      Damaris, congratulations to DH! He's progressing very nicely. Brava on the weight and run; which body parts did you work?

       

      I had an unexpected great trio o'workouts at the gym. Weights. An hour on the TM. Forty-five minutes on the AMT. I feel amazing, the complete antithesis of how I felt earlier in the day.

       

      I played with the speed on the TM like this:

       

      Mile 1 - 6.1mph (9:49)

      Mile 2 - 6.2mph (9:40)

      Mile 3 - 6.3mph (9:31)

      Mile 4 - 6.4mph (9:22)

      Mile 5 - 6.5mph (9:13)

      Mile 6 - 6.6mph (9:05)

      Mile .1 - 6.7mph (8:57)

      Mile .2 - 6.8mph (8:50)

      Mile .3 - 6.9mph (8:42)

      Mile .07 - 7.0mph (8:35)

       

      6.37 miles in 1:00:00.

            Sorry for you and your DH April. Too young.

             

            10 @ 7:58 w/ 8 strides. I'll do core work after dinner. The kitchen is looking pretty disgusting right now.

              Strides at the end of 10?  Boss.

                It's something new this time around. I used to only do them at the end of Pfitz-style recovery runs. Also, get it right ... I stride like a BAUS!


                Bad Ass

                  When you do them at the end, do you run your 10, do strides with rests in between or jogs?

                    I do them near the end of the run, usually within the last 1.5 - 2 miles, with about 60-90 second jog recoveries in between. How about everybody else?

                      It takes me a little less than 2 miles to do 8 strides and that's with one to two minute recoveries.  So if I'm running 7 miles, I begin around the 5 mile mark.

                        I do the same. 4 to a mile with jogging until I finish that quarter.  So, I run 100m and easy until I reach 0.25.

                          But I have heard some people say they run the whole distance and then the strides.

                            Right, we all do.  That covers quite a bit of distance though.  So the 8 strides that I do at the end of a 7 mile run need to begin way before the end, or it would end up being a 9 mile run.

                              I do them mostly like you do, though I really don't bother to measure any specific distance. Mine might be a little shorter than they should be.

                                I mean they do run 9 miles, yes.  Which is why I got confused.  I do total what Pfitz say including the strides.  Some people do the whole distance easy AND then the strides.

                                 

                                I know there is no wrong way to do them but I have always done them the way we do.
