Well if you are interested you can check out my monster of a race report in yesterday's thread.<br><br>
Since I was at my track meet yesterday I missed my brother's graduation and turns out he got Magna Cum Laude which is 3.8 for all of college or something crazy like that...I can't believe it. He is just incredible. Good thing he's home now. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Have a great day everyone.<br><br>

10 miles trails. Awesome run, woohoo!<img alt="icon_cheers.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_cheers.gif"><br><br>
I was able to run from my little community to the town I work in, all on trails, all on state game land. It was a real thrill to finally connect the 2 sets of trails I've been running on. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Felt really good, too. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

15 miles. Did 3 five miles loops, escalating pace on each one. Challenging, but invigoratin'. Perfect running weather: 50ish degrees and overcast. Alas, though, not perfect Hairy-Trotter-sans-shirt weather, so it stayed on. The ladies, they cried about that.

12.5 miles with one BFH and the last 5 miles at MP. 49F degrees, sunny and windy. Starting to feel like a decent marathoner again.

Hi all.<br><br>
Nice running out there folks! Way to go.<br><br>
Day 7 Week 2 of the Pftiz/Douglas 18/70 plan for me. Today's plan was a 17 mile long run. I opted to do this one on pavement so that I would finish at home for Mothers Day dinner.<br><br>
It was reallly tough. My legs were still tired from last night's 12 mile jaunt on the trail. To make matters worse, I didn't eat anything this morning, so I left the house running on empty.<br><br>
A word about the mile markers in the report below: The mile markers are based off of my normal home 16 mile loop. The add-on is really at about mile 6.7, and is 1.4 miles, including a pass on my hill-repeats course. What I've done is kept the times for mile 7 and the time for the add-on. This way, the mile markers I am familiar with work out well.<br><br><b>Daily Run Report</b><br><br><b>Date:</b> 05/13/2007 <b>Time:</b> 09:35<br><b>Run Type:</b> Just A Run<br><b>Distance:</b> 17.4 miles<br><b>Total time:</b> 02:41:23.2 <b>Average Per Mile:</b> 00:08:59.0<br><b>Course:</b> OTHER COURSE<br><b>Max HR (for entire workout):</b> 164<br><b>Average HR:</b> 150<br><b>Shoes:</b> Mizuno Wave Rider 10 - 05/2007 <b>Date Entered Service:</b> 05/08/2007 <b>Ending Mileage:</b> 30.4<br><b>Weather:</b> Sunny and dry.<br><b>Temperature:</b> 57 <b>Temperature Type:</b> Ambient Air <b>Time:</b> Start<br><b>Temperature:</b> 63 <b>Temperature Type:</b> Ambient Air <b>Time:</b> End<br><b>Dew Point:</b> 25 <b>Time:</b> Start<br><b>Dew Point:</b> 18 <b>Time:</b> End<br><b>Wind speed:</b> 2 <b>Max Gust:</b> 13 <b>Direction:</b> NW<br><br><a href="http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=712341" target="_blank">HOME 16 MILE LOOP</a> with <a href="http://www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=128356" target="_blank">add-on</a> to Beaverbrook, up hill repeats course and back to 16 mile loop.<br><br>
A tough, gut it out kind of run for me today. See, yesterday I did 12 miles up on the trail, and finished that at 5pm. Then this morning, I got out of bed and did 17.4 miles at 9:30am. My legs are definitely beat right now.<br><br>
Add to that, I went for this run without eating this morning. I did have 2 GUs during the run, and about a quart of Gatorade.<br><br>
17.4 miles is the longest run I have done since the Bay State Marathon last October.<br><br><b>Run Segments<br>

Well got out and ran on my own for more than a mile or 2. It made me nervous since it was my first actual run in my Haywards. On the way out my shin got a bit sore, nothing bad but it felt like it could get worse and on the way home my calf was getting a lil' tight. I really hope it isn't the shoes, especially since I don't really have the funds to go out and buy another pair if these don't work.<br><br>
All in all, 4.4 miles easy pace for around 7:57.<br><br>

The weather was ideal this morning (60°<img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">. I just ran four miles of recovery which was much needed after yesterday's race.<br><br>
Great running Equinox! I would actually recommend that you try to do more runs without eating beforehand. Your body will figure it out and make the necessary adaptions.

3 miles in 31 minutes, then an easy mile. Followed by 30 minutes of pilates.<br><br>
Congratulations, Alex, and to your brother.

I finished the second day of the C 2 5K program, not exactly 10 miles, but fun nonetheless <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
