Tonight is our mile time trial on the track and I'm hoping for about 5:05 or so...should be rainy and cold though, but I will perservere. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Have a great day.

24 minutes on the ArcTrainer - Kindof a recovery day, but enough to get a good stretch in afterward.<br><br>
Good running to all -

5.9 miles this morning--felt pretty good after the first mile when my legs quit aching.<br><br>
Hope you run well, <b>Alex</b><br><br>
Take care

PS - Alex why 5:05<br>
75-75-74-72 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
But lets face it - More likely<br><br>
72-76-78-77 - Seems like the 1st one is always the fastest<br><br>
Either way - I predict that < 5:05

It was a nice low-humidity 80 degree afternoon for 6 miles with stiff legs. After the first 3 I felt better, but still a little "clunky."<br><br>
I teach one more yoga class this evening and then take a pilates class.

I'm doing an interval workout later, but want to ask SGH about stiff legs.<br><br>
On Sunday, after my run, I took a 60 minute pilates/strength class. Lots of core work, and inherently the workout taxed my legs differently than does running.<br><br>
On my Monday run, I noticed that I was more sluggish than usual and determined that the class had everything to do with it. I'm grateful that I discovered this now and not next week prior to my race. I absolutely believe that the core soreness would hinder my running performance.<br><br>
I wonder, SGH, if your teaching classes could cause a sluggishness on your daily run?

I think I am totally used to all the classes I do (I've been teaching like this for 4-5 years) and they don't affect me at all, but since you went to a class for the first time and don't regularly do that kind of exercise, I think you're right.<br><br>
My new students typically experience soreness and some stiffness after classes when they are starting. I don't know if you were sore, but they are not runners either. Still it asked your legs to do something different than running does.<br><br>
No more classes for you until after the race!

Hi all:<br><br>
After taking yesterday off, I'm back in the saddle again.<br><br>
Here's the report for today:<br><br><b>Daily Run Report</b><br><br><b>Date:</b> 10/16/2007 <b>Time:</b> 16:07<br><b>Run Type:</b> Just A Run<br><b>Distance:</b> 3.4 miles<br><b>Total time:</b> 00:35:11.5 <b>Average Per Mile:</b> 00:08:52.4<br><b>Course:</b> <a href="http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=13315" target="_blank">Home 3.4 mile loop</a><br><b>Max HR (for entire workout):</b> 169<br><b>Average HR:</b> 137<br><b>Shoes:</b> Mizuno Wave Rider 10 - 10/2007 <b>Date Entered Service:</b> 10/10/2007 <b>Ending Mileage:</b> 47.6<br><b>Weather:</b><br><b>Temperature:</b> 63 <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> 37 <b>Time:</b> Start<br><b>Dew Point:</b> 37 <b>Time:</b> End<br><b>Wind speed:</b> 1 <b>Max Gust:</b> 4 <b>Direction:</b> W<br><br>
Back at it today after taking yesterday off. I did my home 3.4 mile loop to try to shake some of the soreness from the quads and hamstrings.<br><br>
Legs were very uncooperative for the first mile then after that they started to feel better.<br><br>
I am having a very hard time believing the 169 max hr. In fact, I do not believe that is accurate, because I do not recall my HR ever being above 150.<br><br>
Very nice night for a run. That was part of the reason I went out for it tonight.<br><b>Run Segments<br>

Haha good guess Mikey. 70, 77, 80, 77. 5:06. We were both pretty close. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Calves/legs feeling a bit better after my treatments.

Dude! Not like your body is still recovering from you racing a marathon two days ago or anything ...<br><br>
I'd believe the 169. One day off? Why only 1?<br><br>
And oh yeah, another rest day, that's 2 in a row. Tomorrow I'll go for a walk, then Thursday I'll try 2 whole miles of running/jogging. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

I guess because the legs were feeling okay (just a bit of soreness), and I thought a very slow, very easy run would loosen up some of the soreness. Seriously, I'm not in any pain, a bit of soreness and stiffness (there's a huge difference between pain and soreness), so I figured why not? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Nice race, Alex!<br><br>
Tonight's run: 66F, overcast and surprisingly humid at 6:30pm<br><br>
Ran with the old track group. The fast group. I'm eyeballing a 5K this weekend and I wanted to push it for a few miles tonight. I couldn't keep up with the speedy runners in the warm-up (7:15 pace), but I hung for the 800m intervals.<br><br>
9 miles total<br>
2.25 mi warm-up and cool-down<br>
6x800m at Interval pace; with 400 recovery jog<br><br>
800m splits: 3:06/3:00/2:58/2:57/2:55/2:58<br><br>
I can tell the legs are still slightly heavy from the marathon, because the intervals did not come as easy as the ones 3 weeks ago. Nonetheless, I'm happy with the workout and my confidence is rebuilding for the next race.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> you my friend are crazy. But, are you going to follow the Pfitz post-marathon plan? Even he recommended 2 days off completely post-race. I know Higdon says a full week! Just go easy! I'm a worry wart - doing too much too soon post-marathon in '05 is how I got my stress fx. That was NO fun.
