Screwed up day for me<br><br>
I slept late. Then I checked the weather 53F no Winds - Perfect - Spent way too long in the bathroom, now even shorter on time -<br><br>
Started running, was pushing it a little in the warmup mile - Time was 8:06 It didn't feel that slow (Maybe I hit a time space distortion) -<br><br>
Decided to go to the track (2.5 miles away) - I did a 2x 1200, 800, 400 and 200 - They all felt really bad and really slow.<br><br>
Had to run to the woods and use my emegency toliet paper - Ran 1 mile through the trails as long as I was there (Very nice)<br><br>
- Ran home - The no wind turned into a tailwind (north) of 10+ mph.<br><br>
AS far as I can tell the run was Bad-Good-Bad-Bad-Bad-Bad-Good-Good<br><br>
It ended on 2 good notes, so I will call it a nice 10 miler <img alt="icon_compress.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_compress.gif"><br><br>
PS - I am soooo happy, that I am no longer a 5k runner - that is not a distance I like.

Looks like se started threads at the same time, Flounder! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> I deleted mine.<br><br>
Sorry to hear that not everything went like you hoped, but it looks like you found the positives in your morning run. Good job!<br><br>
Here's my post:<br><br>
I need a nap. Tough track workout this morning. It was dark, cool, and sprinkly, so that felt nice.<br>
1 mile warm up<br>
3x1600 - 6:48, 6:52, 7:05<br>
4x200 - :44, :45, :43, :43<br>
1 mile cool down<br>
Total workout, with recoveries = 7.5 miles<br><br>
I am super excited about my times on my 1600s. I have been trying and trying to get under 7 minutes. I have been able to get under a 7 min/mi in the first mile of one or two races, but never on the track. I can't believe I was able to do it twice this morning. I didn't have it in me to go all out on the 3rd one and it was still a good time. I'm pleased.<br><br>
Have a great day everyone!

Can we all maybe just start today over OR take a nap OR both?<br><br>
11 miles in 1:34 even.<br><br>
Supposed to do 6x1000 metres at 5k race pace. Did 5 and then 2 x 500 metres at 5k race pace because I was dead. Done. Expired. Gone to meet my maker. Suffled off this mortal coil. Run down the curtain. Joined the choir invisible. Bereft of life, I rested in peace... I'd snuffed. Vis-a-vis the metabolic processes I'd had my lot.<br><br>
You get the picture. Hung on for 3 miles at the end at about an 8:50 pace, but it wasn't pretty.<br><br>
15 miles tomorrow in the snow. Snow?<br><br>
Can we all maybe just start today over OR take a nap OR both?

Good runs both of you!<br><br>
I ran 5 miles yesterday afternoon in 52:02. Had to use my non-existent emergency TP about 1/2 way. I went before I ran, too! I have to time my water drinking better!<br><br>
My ITB started bothering me at about 4.25 miles. The last 3/4 mile was painful, even though I stopped to stretch. Sigh.

Hey Grizzly - You worked hard and your body will recover and be stronger for it. Don't let one day define your current fitness<br><br>
I admire you for working hard and making the best of what your body had to offer "Today".<br><br>
aphigirl01 - Congratulations - Some days you get the long end of the stick <img alt="icon_bounce.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_bounce.gif"> I bet you could have run all of them in 6:54, but you drained yourself a little with that 6:48 1st 1600. It won't be long and you will do them all sub 6:50.<br><br>
Gingerbread - ITB - Those of us who struggle with it are grimacing with you.<br><br>
I vote for the nap - At least I can dream about fast running

<img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> Grimace is right, sometimes if I run 'just so' the pain is less. I don't always know what 'just so' is...thanks for sharing my pain!

First run in a month! I have been oh so idle (and busy elsewhere too!), but no excuses, and with the lighter evenings, an easy 2.25 get back into jog at 9 minute pace along the quayside.<br><br>
Now feel dead <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>

sorry to smirk at your misery folks:<br><br>
but it is kind of refreshing for me to see others who need to dive into bushes and use their emergency toilet paper<br><br>
...just imagine doing that over and over every time you go out for a run<br><br><br><i>edited to remove jewish soccermom rant</i>

wherestheportojohn - At least it gets better when the leaves start to fill in for visual cover <img alt="icon_colors.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_colors.gif"> It is one of the reasons I run indoors all winter - They close the park bathrooms from @ October 1st to sometime in April.<br><br>
Hey Grizzly - I skipped my lunch time run in favor of a nap! <img alt="icon_flower.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_flower.gif">

Hi everyone,<br><br>
Glad to see I'm not the only one who's run didn't go to plan. I wanted to take it easy, but ended up going harder (at least according to the HRM) than I really wanted to.<br><br>
I could use a nap too...<br><br>
Anyway here's the report:<br><br><b>Daily Run Report</b><br><br><b>Date:</b> 03/27/2007<b>Time:</b> 16:15<br><b>Run Type:</b> Just A Run<br><b>Distance:</b> 10.0 miles<br><b>Total time:</b> 01:26:37.0<b>Average Per Mile:</b> 00:08:21.5<br><b>Course:</b> <a href="http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=13327" target="_blank">Home 10 mile loop</a><br><b>Max HR (for entire workout):</b> 169<br><b>Average HR:</b> 155<br><b>Shoes:</b> Mizuno Wave Rider 9 - 02/2007<b>Date Entered Service:</b> 02/23/2007<b>Ending Mileage:</b> 132.4<br><b>Weather:</b> Cloudy and cool.<br><b>Temperature:</b> 61<b>Temperature Type:</b> Ambient Air<b>Time:</b> Start<br><b>Temperature:</b> 56<b>Temperature Type:</b> Ambient Air<b>Time:</b> End<br><b>Dew Point:</b> 45<b>Time:</b> Start<br><b>Dew Point:</b> 43<b>Time:</b> End<br><b>Wind speed:</b> 1<b>Max Gust:</b> 4<b>Direction:</b> E<br><br>
I tried to take it easy tonight, focus on my form, and just relax and enjoy the run.<br><br>
I ended up going a bit harder than I wanted to.<br><br>
Nice day for a run.<br><b>Run Segments<br>

Hello,<br><br>
My name is Martin, and I ran today.<br><br><br>
Yes, I RAN.<br><br>
The last time was January 6th. And then the snow made the roads slippery and I realised that when I run on slippery roads I get tendinitis in the (left) hip. It took me 2 years to figure this out.<br><br>
So I started again tonight. 1,5 kilometer in about 9:30.<br><br>
I love running.

I swam 1600 m this afternoon -- a mix of breaststroke (my favorite), backstroke (least favorite), various kick drills, and mostly freestyle laps.

Wild and wacky training day.<br><br>
Jogged to Hayward Field and warmed up:<br>
8:09 mi<br>
7:34 mi<br>
1:46 for .2 (8:40 pace)<br><br>
My friend Ken showed up and we ran to get him warmed up:<br>
8:14 mi<br>
2:51 for .35 (8:08 pace)<br><br>
800m intervals with 400m rest:<br>
2:54 (5:52 pace)<br>
2:52 (5:47)<br>
2:51 (5:45)<br>
Decided that was enough of that. One more at a more reasonable pace: 3:08 (6:19)<br><br>
Cool down:<br>
7:29 mi<br><br>
Jog home:<br>
4:46 for .55 mi (8:38 pace).<br><br>
Totals (not including recovery):<br><br>
7.1 miles 52:38<br><br>
It's nice to have someone to run intervals with, especially since I don't know what I'm doing. Plus he's faster than me so he makes a nice rabbit.
