thanks for turning the lights on, <b>LL<br><br></b>its 24 degrees outside, folks. it will be 45 when i get home from work. dude. even i can do that math...and with some kind of associative property of running temps...it equals me running this afternoon. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
Clearly Hank thinks you need to hydrate more before running <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">
Planning on a hard run at lunch today - I'm getting a new computer so I will be unable to do much work...I figured I'd take the opportunity and do a little longer than usual lunch run a la Voodoo (though not a deuce and a half - that would be pushing it!).<br><br><b>GatorBob</b> I chuckled when I saw your point last night about having kids' changes things...my wife has started a new exercise class that starts at 5:30am so I've been trying to cover more of the house duties (hee hee, I said duties!). I'm exhausted!
dang that was the coldest morning I have eva run. 32 degrees at the crack of dawn. Had to scrape serious frost off car windows to even see to drive.<br><br>
YET isn't it weird how after just one mile you aren't even the slightest bit cold? This stuff is still so very new to me and I seem to learn/notice things all the time.<br><br>
3 miles in the books. I think knees are ok. I went very slow.
Morning Gang. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"><br><br>
Got 3.5 in this a.m. and will do weights on my lunch hour. MUCH warmer in MN today!<br><br><b>Beaker</b> and <b>Theia</b> - love the front page Philly article!<br><br>
ETA: Yeah <b>Maples</b> - good job on the cold run!
4.5 east this morning. Should end up being my first 100+ mile month since back spasms. Yippee!<br><br>
Following up on some of yesterday's shoe related stuff. My last two pair I got 480 and 400 out of. Although the 400 mile pair is not officially retired yet - they are my back up pair for rainy days, and I will probably use them about 1 x / week through the end of the year for short runs.<br><br>
Probably, but the most important thing is to try them out. Everything about my gait says that I should be in MC shoes - flat footed pronator, heavy runner, etc. I have tried 2 different pairs of MC shoes (Brooks Beast and Saucony Stabil 6) and ended up with the same issues - nasyt blisters on my arch (where a MC shoe has extra stiffening and support to counter-act the pronation, but my damn feet would <i>still</i> pronate), and sore knees\ankles, also because my body resisted the MC features of the shoe. So I am in a stability shoe now, and much happier.<br><br>
Unfortunatly you are correct. If I were 30 pounds lighter, I would be getting more milage out of my shoes. Plus, I think you get less milage out of the shoes during the summer with all of the sweat in them.
I have 4 on the schedule for today. I'll be doing it with my running partner, Bella, and trying out Myrons buddy system leash. Hopefully the big dogs on the route will all be inside when we pass. They make me nervous when I'm with her.<br><br>
Pilates on tap for tonight too.
I think these show it fairly well - it's about how your feet land/roll at impact - towards the inside, outside or middle.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://www.drpchan.com/images/pronate_s.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><img alt="" src="http://www.drpchan.com/images/supinate_s.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">
This is turning out to be a whole lot to think about when running. It is more than one foot in front of the other. I can almost see myself crashing on the tm tonight as I try to figure out whether I pronate or supinate. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">
A bit more on pronation, it's when the heel bone angles inward and the arch tends to collapse (as seen in LL's illustration). HTH!<br><br>
Running for me - planning on something after work; down in Philly today and not sure when I'll be returning. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad">
Hi Ya'll. Bagged my 7M tempo this morning, wanted more sleep, up too late.<br><br>
10 days till my 1st marathon, and I'm freaking out. I'm just going to go out there and try for ~4:30. My fastest 20Mer was 3:45, and I just don't have much faith in my ability to hold a quick pace for 26. But even w/ a relaxed goal, I'm not relaxed at all.
