Good morning! Slightly breezy here <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br>
Spinning class this morning. I really need to get a weight workout in.<br>
Have a great day!
4:20, <b>RFTL</b>, that's just...<i>early</i>. I can't imagine!!<br><br>
I did 4 last night - focusing on keeping my heart rate around 155ish.<br><br><b>Possible actual running question</b>: For the past few weeks, in any run, by the time I get to mile 3 or so, I start having a hard time taking in a deep breath. I'm not getting wheezy or feeling a loss of strength from lack of oxygen, but I just can't take a full breath in. Last night was particularly bad - it started early in my run and I am still feeling unable to breath deep this morning. And I used an inhaler an' all afterwards.<br><br>
Anyone know anything about what I can do to better regulate my breathing and not get to this point?<br><br>
I'm very awake this morning (such an odd feeling!) so I'm going to go poke around the internets for an answer. But I thought I'd check with the running brain-trust.<br><br>
I've been out of the loop the past few days, but I hope <b>Voo</b> hears good things from the doctor today and good runs to all today!
Ailarie - how are you feeling after the great blood give-away? Are things starting to feel better?<br><br>
All I have is an easy 4-5 on tap for tonight, and more of the same tomorrow. I like this taper thing sometimes!
Morning!<br><br><b>RFTL</b> I was on break walking at that time. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> I walk on the top level of the parking garage. It's usually empty and you can see out across the city so it's pretty cool. The moon was beautiful this morning. It's supposed to be full by the 23rd.<br><br>
Nap first, working out later today.<br><br>
Good runs and workouts to all!
Slept in this morning, but I'm heading to the gym for 3 as soon as I get up and get dressed. I'm running my 6 mile LR (which is actually sounding like it's long) at my parents this weekend, so no indoor option. It's supposed to snow on Saturday, so this might be my first snowfall run. [Yes, I'm a wimp.] I can't say that I'm looking forward to it, but the challenge of it (first run at this distance) is really starting to prickle in the back of my mind. Hopefully, by Saturday, I'll be stoked instead of frightened.<br><br>
Yoga tonight if I don't get together with <b>Becca</b>. Laters.
Something easy this morning, probably around 7 or so, nice and slow. Yesterday's run had me surprisingly tired for the rest of the afternoon.<br><br>
Have good runs today, everyone!
<b>Norah</b> - you may need to talk to your doc about a different regimen to control your asthma. Might try using your inhaler 15-30 minutes before you run too. <b>Tonya</b> started on Advair in addition to using her inhaler pre-run about 2 months ago and it's made a HUGE difference.<br><br>
4:20 lol. I'm with you Myron.<br><br>
just waiting for it to warm up a bit here - in the low 20s - before getting some miles in.
Morning!! Not sure what i'm doing today, but last night, I got in 6mi in just over 56 minutes!! Holy crap (for me, sub-10 for that long is crazy fast)!! I totally almost threw up.<br><br><b>Noni</b>, I'm with <b>KP</b> about the asthma....are you just on albuterol or something else? Steroidal? I used to be on Flovent but after I started using albuterol about 15 minutes before exercise. Another question for you....even though spring isn't totally here yet, the allergens are popping up all over the place. Is your asthma allergy-sensitive? Singular does a good job of managing both in some people, if your doc thinks it's worth a try.... Sorry you've had such a rough time of it lately<img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">
Thanks for asking. Sadly, things still sucked yesterday. Not quite as much as Tuesday, but by 1.67 miles into it on the TM, I started to get that "near hurling" feeling again. Grrr. Ended up getting 3.0 in total, including walking. Didn't feel as nauseous after, (compared to Tuesday), so I guess that's progress.<br><br>
It's annoying, but aside of making sure I hydrate well, there's not too much else I can do, but go with what my bod tell me, and just pretend that I'm doing an extra-long taper for the HM on the 30th.<br><br>
One step at a time......
By Grapthar's Hammer, someone is conspiring to keep me from getting my workouts in!! I was supposed to do 24 with a big group on Sat - the wife has a hair appt so I can't do it. I was supposed to do 20 after work today - now it looks like I have to cut that short because I have a sick kid. That will make 5 runs in the last 2 weeks that I either had to skip, do alone, and/or cut short for one reason or the other. This is pissing me off!<br><br>
At least the rain stopped - pretty much 2 days straight, on top of all the snowmelt recently.<br><br>
Well, I suppose I'll have a great day tomorrow since I don't have to go to work...oh, wait a second, I get to do f#cking yard work all day long!
actually got a run in last night - about 6. It was bootiful out! My shins held up but my cold got the better of me and the side stitches were fierce.<br><br>
I am planning on yoga tonight and my strength training workout prior. I should make it there. I am feeling a little better right now....but isn't that always the case, you feel the best in the morning and it gets worse as you get tired.
Morning. Nice little 6/8 double yesterday. I'm starting to make progress on a decent mileage month. Should be another monthly mileage high total. Wow, that didn't make sense.<br><br>
Tonight a tough 12 mile hill run. Good 3/4 mile hills. Hard (MP) up the hills, easy down them. For 12 miles. Ouch, but I need the practice.<br><br><b>Noni</b> - I'd go to the doc. If you're already using an inhaler and you're getting winded like that after three miles, there might be something wrong. Better to be safe.<br><br><b>Maria</b> - Like you have any weight to lose. Madison is going to be a good time. I have a couple of really good friends meeting us there. The after party is going to be a complete blast. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br><b>Voo</b> - I hope everything goes well at the doc.<br><br><b>PC</b> - You sound like me this year. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
Just back from the doc. Never thought I'd hear myself say it, but I'm glad to be diagnosed with ITBS. That was the best news I could've heard. Basically just gave me some stretches to do, was going to write a prescription for an anti-inflammatory, but I declined, and told me to take it easy. I can go back to running (would've anyway). He said to cut back on the mileage and intensity. That might happen for a week. I just wish I would've brought my running stuff in. I should've been more optimistic.<br><br>
I'm still a little nervous about giving this thing a go. Would it be unwise to jump right into a 50-mile week? <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">
