    Re: My last run was...how was yours?

    last weeks 4m on friday as planned forget times though, the weekend was spent with the family running from one event to another as it is now softball and spring soccer season, plus we had a few birthday parties to get in as well, then sunday evening we took the girls down to a creek at a nearby park and caught slamanders and cray fish, just to play outside.  Yesterday was suposed to be 5 mi but started late, so only got 4.46 and ran out of time but it was a 8:59m/m so I'm happy with that, not a thing today yoga tomorrow and hoping to get 10mi in as well, if not, def thursday  so that fri can still be a 4-6m run. Hubby will be out of town saturday and sunday and we have a soccer tournament on saturday and I am assuming that sunday will be spent with my SIL and MIL as usual for Mothers Day.

     

    I came to the realization durring yesterdays run, that on the days I DONT run I feel very stiff and sore in my joints and then after a few miles that state of stiff discomfort is gone and I feel great....guess I should be running every day rather than using it as a reason to skip a run when I'm feeling lazy!!!!!

    Re: My last run was...how was yours?

    Today's run was good. If the weather had been cooler, it would have been great. Summer seems to have arrived early here in NC. I'm going to have to start carrying water. 5.4 miles at an 8:29 pace today.

    Traffic was ridiculous and I still had to run errands but I managed to sneak in a quick 2 miler with some speed work included.

    Re: My last run was...how was yours?

    Hi Lucy,

     

    Not sure if this is the correct thread to introduce myself. It's my first post here. My last run was on May 1st. I completed my first full marathon!! It was a windy cold day but that made hitting the finish line all the better!  I've been running about 2 1/2 yrs. Completing a marathon was my ultimate goal. Now that I've done that, still trying to figure out where to go from here.   I'll probably do some shorter races this summer and work towards another full marathon in the fall.

    Re: My last run was...how was yours?

    Yesterday was a short 3 mile run with the students. Most if not all of them were pretty sore from Broad Street on Sunday. It was good to see how proud they were of themselves and of each other. In my short time as a mentor to these kids, yesterday was one of my fondest moments with them. Even though they were sore they were more determined to get through yesterdays run than I've ever seen them at any practice before the 10 miles down Broad St. I couldn't stop telling them how proud I was of them yesterday for their accomplishments on Sunday. I didn't think any of them would finish before 2:30 but yet 6 of the 9 did just that, with 2 of them coming in under 2:00.I don't think we as adults give children enough credit due to our preconceived notions at times. None of our children had run more than 6 miles before Sunday and most never more than 4, however, they gutted out that 10 miles as if they weren't jump 4-6 miles up in distance. I was glad to them back for more yesterday. So I didn't add another mile, I didn't shave off a minute, I didn't do a new training but yet yesterday might be one of the most gratifying thus far in my short running career.

    Re: My last run was...how was yours?

    Welcome Christina!  What part of the world do you run in that was so cold?  How are your legs doing in recovery?  Sometime folks have a letdown after achieving a big goal.  Don't be surprised by feeling a little off.  It's good that you can look forward to just enjoying running for its own sake for a little while.  There will be events enough as you run through the years.  The luckiest people are the ones who enjoy every step, I think.

    Re: My last run was...how was yours?

    I hope all are doing well this week!  My last run was the Athens Twilight 5K and it was awesome - just what I needed!! And running the race with both of my daughters made it even more special!  They both had a blast and each improved their times from their last 5K!  I'm very proud of their accomplishments and grateful we're able to enjoy this time together!  As for my time, after taking a few days of rest (and with perfect weather) I was able to set a new PR for  my 5K -  23:50!!  I was thrilled to get my average below the 8:00 pace!  Hopefully I'll be able to keep improving my times until I reach a sub 20 minute 5K....still a way to go!!! 

    Enjoy your RUN!!

    Re: My last run was...how was yours?

    Hi Joseph!

     

    I'm in Wisconsin.  And you?  Winter has not quite left us yet   It actually was snowing a bit on the day of my race!!  I don't mind the cold so much but the wind was pretty brutal. My body felt very beat up on Monday so I took a day off work. By Tuesday I felt much better and today pretty much normal. I can't decide how/when to resume my running schedule yet. I think I'll try a 4-5 mile run on Saturday.   I will try to take your advice and just have fun with it for a while, because the last 10 weeks have been a lot of work.

     

    How often/how far do you typically run?

     

    Christina

     

    edit: I just saw on your signature that you have/had some races scheduled in PA. I used to live in Whitehall yrs ago!!

    Re: My last run was...how was yours?

    I'm on the north side of Valley Forge National Park, which is just west of Philly.  Your race sounds like a real challenge with the wind and cold.  I ran a Marathon in 1984 in Houston where it started out at 34 degrees and in the middle of the race it started to rain and the temp dropped to 32 by the end.  It wasn't too windy though, as I recall.

     

    I don't run nearly as much as I technically should.  I'm lucky if I get 20 miles in a week lately.  That's more because it's shad fishing season (the best folks have seen in a long time) and I just don't have time to get everything (work, family, fishing) done.  When the shad are done, later this month, I'll be back to 25 to 30 miles/week.

     

    Run well!

    My first run yesterday since last Sunday's 1/2 Marathon ...ahhhh...what a pleasure!  No pressure or distractions, just run to feel the path under my feet  and the sun and breezes on my back.  It was so smooth and easy I hardly even broke a sweat.  What a joy!

    Re: My last run was...how was yours?

    On Wednesday, I met up with some people at my running store to go on a club run. It was my first time running with this group but it was awesome. The run club leader is a marathoner. He ran in the Kentucky Derby Marathon last week and 18 other marathons before that!  I did the 3 mile run on an easy out and back path.

     

    Yesterday, I ran 3.5 miles after work all alone. Nice and sunny, about 65 degrees outside with a light to mid breeze. Beautiful weather!

    Re: My last run was...how was yours?

    I ran 5 miles home from work on Wednesday and enjoyed that last bit of cool weather we're going to have here in Corpus Chrisit for awhile! I'm going to miss these runs when the summer hits, but it is way too hot to run longer distances in the evening, at least for me! Mid 90's, high humidity, and blazing sun = no fun.

     

    Oh, and I finished first in my age group last Satruday in the Portland Kiwanis 10k! Of course, there was nobody else in my age group, but I'm taking the win.
