7.22 miles this morning in 59:52 for an average pace of 8:18. It was about 40 degrees for my run. I hope everyone has great runs today.

Did my 10 mile loop LATE last night. Left the house at 10 p.m. and it was chilly.<br><br>
Needless to say, I'm dragging today.

90 mins on the TM, speed work. Nothing too terribly exciting <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Missed yesterday so legs were pretty strong today. I managed 5.85 miles on the TM. Started with 5 min at 5.3 mph and increased by 0.1 mph every 5 min until the final 5 at 6.4 mph. It was a way to relieve the boredom.<br><br>
I may have to go to town tonight. If not, I may do a threshold run tonight. Otherwise I will try for an outdoor run in Smithers before dark.

Things were okay with today's slog.<br>
Didn't even make a pit till mile 8...then it all went to hell in a handbasket.

Nice workouts today, everyone.<br><br>
I did the same workout as <b>WTPJ</b>. 10 miles on the treadmill. 5 were at Tempo pace (7:55-8:00). My legs felt very strong and energized.<br><br>
Lately I've been struggling a lot with my mental toughness and also with motivation. To work on the mental aspect, every time I started thinking it felt "hard" or something else negative during the Tempo miles (which wasn't that often actually) I increased the speed temporarily to make myself "work harder" when I start to get into a less positive mindset.

Hi again all, and welcome redkite.<br><br>
4.1 as a second run on the dreadmill (I brought shorts thinking it would be warmer than it ended up being). 36:53.<br><br>
Tomorrow a 14 miler, but I'm sore today so I imagine it will be very pokey. But pokey is good.

good focus, SGH<br><br>
sometimes [well, a lot of times] I get so pizzed at my 'issues' that I tell myself I'm tacking on an extra .5-1 mile for each stop.<br>
I've had 3 milers turn into 6+ .....OY!

Aww, but WTPJ, you shouldn't punish yourself for something you can't help or control. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

Howdy all,<br><br>
Some great workouts out there today! Keep up the awesome work folks!<br><br>

47 degrees tonight was warm enough for me to break out a pair of shorts for my hill repeats! My body appreciated the warmer air.<br><br>
When I got over to the hill, my body seemed to say "Hey, we've been taking it slow and easy too much lately. Time for a fast night!".<br><br>
The sidewalks were still impassable in Burlington, and it made for a very interesting .75 mile stretch during both warmup/cooldown. Running on a state highway is not fun!<br><br>
Legs felt great today, except that stubborn right glute muscle is still a bit sore. I don't think tonight's effort will help that too much!<br><br><b>Run Segments<br>

How can I go after EQ? <img alt="" src="http://forums.49ers.com/messageboard/images/smilies/13.gif" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
I did a measly 1 mi on the 'mill because of some <b>bad</b> WTPJ issues -- which is very unusual for me. Hope tomorrow is better!<br><br>
