10 km in the cold, rain and by the end of it the dark too ... but I hit my time goal so I'm
Points series 10K this morning. It was 49F. In Georgia. Had to turn the heat back on. But GREAT for running. 3.2 miles out into the wind, 3 miles back with a tail wind. Yeah, last 3 miles were much faster.
Sun was 12ish. 6 with DW and DS in stroller around town, then about 30 mins later I went back out and did 6ish on trails. (Garmin said 5.8, Runkeeper said 6.4. Today was bike.
8 miles on Saturday morning. Lovely weather for a run. Feet felt achy afterwards and it occurred to me to check the mileage on my running shoes. It was was up to 742 miles! Eeks. Breaking in new shoes today.
2.7@2i, 2@7:30, .7@7
3.5 on TM. Nice new running shoes.
Back to the weekday runs, 0500 wakeup for maintenance 3-milers. Huge scary moon this morning with Venus.
Easy 2.3 miles in my collective training. Plus a super sprint across the square for the bus ... which pulled away just as I got there
2.72@2i, 1.75@7:30, .97@7
After 60 minute training session, 30 minutes on the bike for a distance of 7.8 miles.
And we're back to the heat....
2.62@2i, 1@8, 1@7:30, .62@7.
3.06 miles outdoors. Now that the Florida heat has returned, runs will have to be done on the TM at the gym....unless I want to get up early and run in the dark. Nah, I don't think so....
@Texas84, the runDisney Virtual Shorts start next month. Will those count as Disney miles?
Oh, for those of you who have thought about running a virtual 5k but have concerns about how much of the registration fee Disney charges for theirs actually goes to charity (and which ones), the ASPCA is sponsoring one - the window for completing it is between June 10th and June 30th. Registration is open and is only $34...and you can register your pet(s) to run with you (don't think my cat will be eager to participate) and they can receive a medal also. Registration includes a race bib and of course, a cool medal.
The ASPCA encourages those entering to do additional fundraising for the organization, but it's not a requirement. If you're interested, here's the link: teamaspca.org
I've already registered.
I tried so hard to get our mini goldendoodle to run with me, but she insists on stopping to sniff every 10 feet. Drives me insane. I gave up. Perhaps a professional trainer could have gotten her over the hump, but I never invested in it. Sounds like a fun run thought.
Anyway, 4.5 miles yesterday at 9:50 pace which is pretty good for me these days post-RA diagnosis.
@JillC LI, sorry to hear about your diagnosis. Hoping everything's going okay.
Yes, thanks. It's been just over 2 years since I was diagnosed during my first major flare up. Once I got it under control with meds, I haven't had any pain. But I eased back on pace and distance after that since I'm afraid of doing anything to cause another flare up. I just want to be able to enjoy running at a comfortable pace long term. That's more important to me than racing or any more PRs.
So, I'm doing a 3-miler at 0530. As usual I stir up some dogs in a backyard at the half mile mark and as I leave them I hear an inhuman blood-curdling scream behind me. Probably a cat or a bird but sounds are amplified and I have an active imagination. All sorts of horror film scenarios going through my mind.
Totally up to you. It's not on site but it is official runDisney.
Okay, thanks. I'll ask you to add them to my total after each race. I'll even take a picture of the TM display to show I really did run those miles.
My neighborhood route is fairly well shaded with trees. While great for day time runs, those live oaks, pines and magnolias pretty much mask the few street lights along my route. And we have racoons, foxes, coyote, deer and skunks in our neighborhood. The last thing I want is to run up on either a skunk or racoon in the dark...my daughter would get a very interesting text asking her to go to Publix and buy gallons of tomato juice...
