  • @7lenny7 You're killing it! Almost 130 miles so far this month!

  • @teresa502 Laurel Falls is beautiful! Have a great time in Ireland. Can't wait to see some pics. @katharmonic Enjoy your family time! @kgirlhart Super cool plant! I wouldn't go so far as to say the weather was good for the race, but I'll post on that in a bit. @polskagirl01 I didn't understand taking the medal either. I…
  • Looks like I'm getting my wish for a rainy race!! And it's cooler than forecasted yesterday. 70F at race start. That's a huge difference! I just finished packet pickup and am one of few who seem happy about the rain. Several people were just taking their medal and bailing. It's a steady rain but definitely not a downpour.…
  • @7lenny7 Good luck with the HM training. I hope you get that PR! @Scott6255 I love hummingbirds! We get a lot of them in the hill country. I never realized they made little chirping noises until recently as I've always seen them through windows.
  • May totals: 65.5/100 miles 5/2: 3.2 miles 5/3: 6.6 miles 5/4: 3.2 miles 5/5: 3 miles 5/7: 5.4 miles 5/9: 3.1 miles 5/10: 5.4 miles 5/11: 6.5 miles 5/13: 6.1 miles 5/14: 10 miles 5/16: 3 miles 5/17: 3.1 miles 5/18: 3.7 miles 5/21: 3.2 miles Nice and short this morning. It felt almost luxurious to do such a short run on a…

Only 6 x 400m repeats…

I think my watch short changed me this morning. I do this particular loop…
  • I think I fall somewhere between your 2 friends. I focus on keeping my posture upright and core engaged. If the hill is really steep I will end up more on my toes than my normal gait, but on more gentle hills, my foot falls in about the same way. I focus on lifting my knees more to keep my stride short. As far as run v…
  • @polskagirl01 Hooray for crushing your Dream-in-the-clouds goal!! You did such an amazing job!
  • @teresa502 That view is beautiful and I love the little orange newts!

Actually managed a decent pace without sending my HR through the roof, 11:00 average. I also wasn't totally…
  • @kgirlhart That hail is huge!! Your poor plants. I hope your roof is ok. @Scott6255 Glad to see your new method is working for you!
  • @Teresa502 Can't wait to see pics from your AT hike! As a morning runner, I find it so much harder to run after work too. Morning runs just feel easier on the body.
  • May totals: 42.5/100 miles 5/2: 3.2 miles 5/3: 6.6 miles 5/4: 3.2 miles 5/5: 3 miles 5/7: 5.4 miles 5/9: 3.1 miles 5/10: 5.4 miles 5/11: 6.5 miles 5/13: 6.1 miles I took a rest day yesterday instead of climbing as my ankle was a little sore just walking around. Did some ice and aleve and it was fine this morning. So, no…
  • @Scott6255 I'm happy to see you had a revelation! I really hope this will help with your injury prevention and keep you running for many years to come. This last year I slowed waaaay down on my easy runs. Like a minute to a minute and a half a mile. It has helped so much with recovery. Your "jog" is basically my easy pace…
  • May totals: 36.4/100 miles 5/2: 3.2 miles 5/3: 6.6 miles 5/4: 3.2 miles 5/5: 3 miles 5/7: 5.4 miles 5/9: 3.1 miles 5/10: 5.4 miles 5/11: 6.5 miles Preemptively substituted the mileage from the repeats on my plan for just a run at a pace I could manage in the heat. It felt a little better to me last night compared with the…
  • @mmckee1189 Welcome! Jump right in. You’ll find this group very encouraging. Don’t worry about your mileage looking “impressive”. Every one of us started somewhere and we actively encourage people to start out slow to lessen the risk of injury and hopefully nurture a love of running. @polskagirl01 Glad you had a good time…
  • @eleanorhawkins I never really acclimate. At least not to the point where running isn't hard. I just remind myself that the fall glow-up will be worth it. I am impressed with people that be consistent with pace in the heat. The temperature affects me so heavily. My husband runs at the same pace no matter the temps, sun,…
  • May totals: 29.9/100 miles 5/2: 3.2 miles 5/3: 6.6 miles 5/4: 3.2 miles 5/5: 3 miles 5/7: 5.4 miles 5/9: 3.1 miles 5/10: 5.4 miles I ran at dusk yesterday since I didn't have time before work. Now that we are into summer, daytime running is a no-go for me. So, it's either dark-sunrise or dusk-sunset. It is significantly…
  • @shanaber Good news from your PT! @marisap2010 Oh no! I hope your case is mild and you are up and running again soon. @polskagirl01 Good luck on your race this weekend!
  • @7lenny7 Congrats on your runiversary! It is so hard as pets get older and I'm sure you miss Kody's company on your runs and I'm sure he would love to be there too. I remember when he would go out with you all the time. I'm glad he is still able to have some walks with you.
  • @7lenny7 Cute goats! That birding app sounds pretty cool. I always hear crazy bird calls when I go hiking but so rarely can see the bird they are coming from. If I do spot it, I can't tell what it is.
  • Wooooo!! @quilteryoyo Congrats on completing your streak. Very impressive!
  • May totals: 24.5/100 miles 5/2: 3.2 miles 5/3: 6.6 miles 5/4: 3.2 miles 5/5: 3 miles 5/7: 5.4 miles 5/9: 3.1 miles Recovery miles in the dark this morning. Kept the pace nice and easy and found a couple sprinklers along the way. Even if I don't need them on the super early runs, they still feel nice!
  • Happy Mother’s Day to those in the states celebrating today! We are headed out to brunch in a bit. Trying out a new place. I love brunch and brunch cocktails, so really looking forward to it!
  • I think foolhardy is the word you meant to use there! :D Honestly impressed you’ve made it this far before going shirtless! I had a couple of weeks where I felt awkward being shirtless last month and have moved on to not giving a #@$* already. It’s too hot to wear anything more than absolutely necessary!
  • @eleanorhawkins Your watch sounds way bossier than mine. Maybe I have something turned off but mine doesn’t tell me if I am productive or not. It doesn’t comment one way or the other on my runs. I don’t spend a lot of time on the garmin app since i use strava so maybe I’m just not seeing that info. I think I would get…
  • These temps are not a hotter part of the day. This was 7am. We hit our lows here at 6-7am and unfortunately, this is just what it is for the next several months. The high that day was 93F. This race will 100% be as miserable as I am expecting but that’s ok. I’m not really complaining. I know what the weather is like this…
