Yesterday ran a 14-mile progression run - 2 hrs 0 mins 35 seconds for an 8:37pace. Last three miles were 7:40, 7:41, and 7:38. I was hoping to be able to run those at 7:30. Even though the paces were not what I hoped for, I had a blast running the miles.

Today I plan to run 4 miles slow/recovery. Sunday 16th I have a 10K road race.

10 easy miles for me this morning in 1:15:11 (7:31) around the local streets. Quite nice out too! Cloudy and upper 60's.
The extended forecast looks like we may be getting some very nice fall weather about a week early.

I ran 6.5 mile this afternoon on the sidewalks of Dublin, Ohio. I was working on my form for the entire run causing me to increase my pace faster than I should have ran. My pace was 6:36 and I felt tired after the run.

Another beautiful day here in the mountains, but I didn't run outdoors so I missed all the wildlife. For some reason I have been feeling pretty achy lately so I just did a walking mile warmup on the TM, followed by 2 and a bit at an easy pace, followed by another mile cool down. Managed to take in the news, sports and weather for a change! If I feel good I may go outdoors this evening for a short run.

I ran a 20 miler on Saturday. Nothing yet today, but hill work scheduled for later.

I just felt like posting about the 20 miles I ran on Saturday. :D
Antagonist had to drop back at 14 miles, but I waited for him at the end. He didn't seem to having as much fun.

7 miles on grass loop during lunch - 7:35 pace. Legs felt better than I thought they would after a longish quality day on Saturday, followed by a generic long run yesterday.


Way to go Ilene. Getting ready for Long Beach, heh?

6 miles easy for me today. Ran 5 miles easy yesterday. Still recovering from a 100K trail relay on Saturday where I ran 4 relay legs totalling 15 miles in some of the most insane conditions I've ever experienced. The team I was on finished 8th out of 350 teams. Hopefully I'll be ready to roll by Wednesday for my CV workout.

Would like to hear more about your 100k trail race.

Hi Ksrunr,

The 100K trail race was called Dances With Dirt ( http://www.danceswithdirt.com ) The race takes place in an area around the Washtenaw and Livingston county border in Michigan, including the small town of Hell, Michigan! Each team has 5 runners and there are 15 legs total ranging from 1.5 miles - 6.1 miles. Depending on what leg you run, you encounter pretty much everything imaginable. Hard dirt, lots of rocks, tall grass, river crossings, mud/quicksand, etc. The course is marked pretty well with flags tied to trees and other landmarks and you really have to trust your instincts. A lot of times the flags will take you off a 'proper' trail and into the woods or something and you just have to follow them or else you'll get screwed. Your team needs to travel from site to site too. Each site will have 1-2 legs and when your runner takes off you have to pile into your van and drive as quickly as possible to the next handoff site. I'm definitely more of a road race guy but I did have a lot of fun. I don't think I would do an individual trail race, but I really enjoyed the team aspect of DWD.

Ben
