Half Marathon Trainers

Half marathon trainers - November 2009 (Read 845 times)

    Just to pass something on...

    I have recently started using a cheap LED headlamp for evening running, I bought it for fixing my old car if/when it breaks down at night. The lamp takes 2 AA batteries, has elastic to go round your head, and a hinge to set it at different angles.

    Works pretty well, less than $10, helps both to see and be seen.

    PBs since age 60:  5k- 24:36, 10k - 47:17. Half Marathon- 1:42:41.

                                        10 miles (unofficial) 1:16:44.

     

      Ran 8k this afternoon, 3k warm up, 2k speed then 3k cool down.

      The 2k fast took 8:36, not bad but not great.

      PBs since age 60:  5k- 24:36, 10k - 47:17. Half Marathon- 1:42:41.

        Wrapping up a busy November for me. If y'all will indulge me with a "Look what I can do" moment:

        I ran over 140 miles in November! I blasted past my previous monthly high of 108 miles and not by doing stupid things either but just by being consistent: I didn't miss a single planned run. 

         

        Good to read about people still braving the cold and running/racing so well. Thanks for posting the reports.

        Way to go Vixi, Larry, Bobev, MrPH & Paul!

        MilkTruck - good to hear you are on the mend - keep it up mate!
