4.5 miles. Pushed the pace a bit and averaged 7:58.<br><br>
46F so the running was cool into the wind but I got warm coming back. Never pleasing this guy.<br><br>
Have a good run.<br><br>

12 miles on the Lower Trail (Rails to Trails trail). Was hot by the end, and I got slower and slower.<br><br>
Little trivia for you: Lower rhymes with flower in this case.

Great runs everyone. 6 miles easy today. Pace was a little slower then usual. I think I'm still getting used to heat/humidity but I love summer <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Hi all,<br><br>
Great running folks! Keep it up!<br><br>
I thought about doing today's run at 5am. I actually had to get up to go the bathroom and said to myself, it's pretty cool right now.<br><br>
Then I thought better of it, and went back to bed until 10am. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
I did the run at 1:30 this afternoon. It was a bit warm at the start, especially in the sun. I found every speck of shade I could during the first 9 or so miles. Around mile 10 or so some clouds rolled in and blocked out the sun and a bit of a breezy wind kicked up. Nothing sustained, but enough that I could notice it. Those clouds and that wind probably kept me from calling this run at a shorter distance.<br><br>
18.6 miles for me today. It was a combination of my home 15.2 mile loop, and my home 3.4 mile loop. What I did was did the first 15 miles of the 15.2 mile loop. Then did the 3.4 mile loop, then finished off the last .2 of the 15.2 mile loop.<br><br>
In the data below, I took a 15.2 marker. That is actually the usual 1 mile marker for both the 15.2 mile loop and the 3.4 mile loop. I took this mark so that I could compare mile 2 from tonight with miles 15.2 to 16.2. Times were consistent. HRs were not. Most of mile 3 from tonight is the same as miles 16.2 to 17.2. Again, times were fairly consistent, HRs were not.<br><br>
I'm starting to notice a trend that I don't like. My HR seems to jump 10-15 BPM right around 2 hours, sometimes more, sometimes less, but right around 2 hours. Hopefully that will improve as the training continues.<br><br>
Here's the data:<br><br><b>Daily Run Report</b><br><br><b>Date:</b> 05/27/2007 <b>Time:</b> 13:36<br><b>Run Type:</b> Just A Run<br><b>Distance:</b> 18.6 miles<br><b>Total time:</b> 02:49:11.5 <b>Average Per Mile:</b> 00:08:49.6<br><b>Course:</b> <a href="http://www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=35074" target="_blank">Home 15.2 mile loop</a> with <a href="http://www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=33449" target="_blank">Home 3.4 mile loop</a> added on.<br><b>Max HR (for entire workout):</b> 175<br><b>Average HR:</b> 157<br><b>Shoes:</b> Mizuno Wave Rider 10 - 05/2007 <b>Date Entered Service:</b> 05/08/2007 <b>Ending Mileage:</b> 111.6<br><b>Weather:</b> Sunny for first 9 miles.

HOME 15.2 MILE LOOP WITH HOME 3.4 MILE LOOP ADDED ON.<br><br><br><br>
Plan tonight called for 18 miles. I did my home 15.2 mile loop, and added on the 3.4 mile loop starting at mile 15. Finished with 18.6 miles.<br><br>
The 15.2 marker is actually the 1 mile marker on my 3.4 mile loop. I did this so I could compare mile 2 to mile 15.2 to mile 16.2 (they are over the same course). Most of 16.2 to 17.2 is the same as mile 3 as well, so comparing them makes a lot of sense. The times were almost identical, but the HRs were definitely not.<br><br>
This was my longest run since last year's Bay State Marathon. My goal tonight was actually 9:00 per mile. Slightly ahead of goal pace.<br><br>
The clouds rolled in at a very opportune time. The sun was starting to get to me even though I found every speck of shade I could.<br><br><b>Run Segments<br>

Alright Gingerbread!<br><br>
5 miles for me in 51:50 on the treadmill. My ipod slipped in a bluegrass song, and I suddenly felt like George Clooney running from cops in Oh Brother Where Art Thou. I laughed out loud.<br><br>
Then only 15 minutes of pilates. Miss Sunshine realized that as long as we had a DVD in, Mr Blue would be more interesting (that's what she calls Blue's Clues).

I just joined an informal cycling group, and today was my first ride with them. It was a short one, but that was fine with me. I did a longer one solo yesterday. Besides, I rode from my house to the start and that was farther than the group ride itself, so I definitely got my exercise. Had fun and met a couple of folks who might turn out to be partners in crime on the longer rides.

Thanks, everyone. I best write a report (my first) and EQ it was a race. I felt bad about how I did, but there's nothing I can do about it now.

That's what I'm thinking.
