Not Depressing...

    8.6 memorial miles for me. When posted monthly miles yesterday, I forgot today was the end of the month...so just snuck over 150 for the month. Now I need to do something similar, or better, for June.

     

    Happy Memorial Day! I don't have any military in my immediate family, or recent generations, but thank you to those who serve/served and to those who gave lives for freedom!

      Ran the Honor the Brave Memorial Day 5K this morning (4 miles total with warmup). My asthma was bad so it wasn't a repeat of my great performance last month, but it was nice to get out there for another race.

       

      I also snuck 151 miles for the month, after not running much for February and March and a slow April. Heading in the right direction.

        SRD, and I managed to sleep the extra available time, so I'm very happy with that.

          Damaris - glad to hear your asthma didn't keep you from the race.

           

          I ran 137.7 for May, including close to a week off.  My RP and I ran 1 mile time trials today.  I haven't run a timed mile since high school, over 3 decades ago, so I didn't know what to expect.  I put in a 7:10.84, which is close to what the Riegel formula predicted based off my recent 5k and half marathon times.  My RP was faster than I was, and by more than I can write off to our 5-year age difference.  He pulled up the Nike chart that says I can run a 4-hour marathon based on my 1-mile time.  Of course, being able to run 1 mile doesn't mean you can even finish a marathon, but my recent half marathon time suggests 4 hours is within reach for a full.  I feel myself inching closer to running another marathon some time in the next few years.  Anyone want to talk me back off the ledge?

          5k 23:59.9 (5/21); 5M 39:33 (11/20); 10k 52:27 (3/19); Half 1:53:35 (4/21)

          Upcoming race(s): Retro 4 Miler, NYC, 8/7; Jersey Shore Half, Sandy Hook, 10/3

            Good morning!  I had a 5 mile run on my schedule today, but I figured I'd do a little extra and ended up running 10.  That gives me 223 miles for the month, which is my most in 10 months.  I am also at 440 bike miles, although I may spin later so that may tick up a bit, and 14.6 miles of swimming.

             

            Also, today's run put me over 1,000 miles for the year.

            LOL you are asking the wrong crowd, my friend!

              very early morning: Vietnam Memorial

               

               

               

               

              Early morning:  1.26 slow stream grade, inside right hams tight, got two modest cramps, walked back to car... I MUST STOP doing the lighted weighted leg lifts...they haven’t fixed anything and I think they causing trouble.

              9:30am   45 mins pool mix wearing pool shoes; roughly 10 mins Pool run, 5 back & breast, repeat.

                The 300 mile drive to Eugene took a miserable 8 hours on Friday. One backup after another. Came back last night and it took 4:45. Much nicer. 

                6 miles with 10 strides. 
                316 miles for the month...imagine if I hadn’t been tapering!

                          Why stop there?  Can't you feel the lure of ultras?

                            No, I don't feel that lure yet, though there is this 50k trail run near where I live...

                              I ran 7:13 twice in the past 2-3 years but haven't made that translate to HM or marathon.

                                10.2 miles, 195.6 for the month

                                 

                                I ran a loop from my house that I don't usually do because of multiple freeway ramps. On a normal weekday it would be almost certain death to cross like 8+ lanes several times (and that's just the ramps!). I also ran back a road that is basically all marijuana dispensaries. Such a weird vibe after Just Say No to Drugs for my whole life and now there are legal drive thrus to get your drugs.
