I decided I wanted to try running, so I did 2k for the first time ever last Tuesday; turns out that was overdoing it and I was ridiculously sore all week. I swore to not overdo it ever again.

So, sensibly, today I completely ignored that and did 5k for shiitakes and giggles. It was fun. We'll see how I feel tomorrow.

Tea, you should try run-walking! That way you can get a whole work out in and not hurt yourself.
I got a free trial membership at the gym near my house and went for the first time today. I have a pretty reasonable fear of falling off of treadmills but I think I got the hang of it. Also, I'm going to try and break 30 minutes at the 5k I'm doing in a few weeks. According to my recent tempo runs I should be able to do it no problem, but we'll see...

A wonderful run last night, it was sunny and cool with a bit of wind. I did 4 laps instead of the usual 3, which means about 10 km, and it took me 58 minutes, yay! Considering last time I did 10 km (in december) it took me 1 hour and 13 minutes, it's a great improvement!

Onward!

Such a gorgeous morning on my 6-miler today. Ran under the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, and the East River was crashing against the rocks by my path. It's going to be an awesome day.

Jogged 6k without stopping! Took about 40 minutes, so I'm still getting passed by just about everybody else on the track, but whatever.

Apparently endurance sports induce hunger, so now I am eating a mango! Mmmm.

Short run today, but faster than average. Disappointed but not too much.

You guys, I just made an unplanned shoe purchase that I'd like to ramble about!

So, I've been running in Newtons since last September, and they've been really good to me. Recently, however, my outer toes on both feet have started to hurt pretty badly during longer runs, and my ankle has been sore lately, too. I have some minor form issues that I'm working on (mild supination), so I had been attributing all of my discomfort to that, and not the possibility that my shoes might need replacing. I had never even considered that I might have worn through a pair of shoes, as I've only really been distance running for a year or so, and I've never had to replace a pair of shoes because of wear. Then, today I went to REI just to try on, but not purchase, some styles from the Brooks Pure series, as well as the Merrell Pace Gloves. The moment I switched from the Newtons to the others my toe pain completely disappeared! After running around the store for awhile I bought the Brooks PureFlows.

Then, I came home and looked up some online discussions on Newton longevity, and found quite a few photos of Newtons that people had retired due to wear. Mine look about twice as bad as those. The toes are completely worn down, and the fronts of the lugs are likewise pretty rough. I did a rough calculation of my mileage since buying them, and they're pushing 500 miles, if not more. I'm in Boulder, so all of my runs are quite hilly, and I train almost entirely on concrete. No wonder my toes have been hurting!

Anyway, I'm probably way too excited to have destroyed my first pair of shoes, but I had to post. I hope these new ones are good-- the Newtons run about $180, which is way too much money for me to spend every 6-7 months. The PureFlows were half that, and I'm an REI member so I always have some rebate money lying around.

Ran a 10K in Central Park this AM. Totally killed it in 1:02:46 (10:07 mile). It was pretty humid, but overall I felt awesome! And I got a huge medal.

Sweet!

I ran 6k again; shaved a couple of minutes off my time, which I guess is pretty negligible.

A couple of minutes is not negligible off 6k! I am trying to figure out how to shave 3:40 off my half marathon so I can come in sub-2 hours... and it's a huge difference in pace!

I wish some of you guys were around to be my running buddy for my impending long runs! When I first trained for a marathon (2004), I had my mom to keep me company. I'm considering joining a local running club, but I'm usually the slowest in the pack and worry about injuring myself by trying to maintain a pace that's too fast for me. That's what happened when I attempted to train for the LA marathon and ended up getting coxa saltans (hip snapping syndrome). Bleh. I know I can do this, but sometimes it's better with a friend. A slow friend. Hah!

Was still a bit sore but decided to run anyway; only managed to do 5k in 33 minutes.

Killer track workout today. We did a lactic acid buildup workout which is always "fun". Feel the burn, baby!

After some extended coordination and neural drills, we did 13 mins of fartleks with 60% effort "easy" and 85-90% effort "hard". After a 3 min break (yeesh, thanks!) we then did a 2 mile progression run where you start out at 75% effort and increase your speed every 200-400m. We were told to cross the finish line feeling like we could not have gone a step faster/farther.

Whew!

I'm gonna sleep well tonight.

Oh man, studio. Reading that makes me glad it's race week for me because at least I know whatever's in store for me at track tomorrow, it won't be that!

Yeah, its killer. By the time you start the progression run, your legs are already fatigued. Its really great for mental training, though because its requires a LOT of gritting it out when you really want to quit.

Have a great taper this week! Rest up and break a lace! (Your race is this weekend, no? Your half ironman?)

So not jealous of you, studio. I'd probably vomit. I'd like someone to coach me with speedwork one day, but not while I'm in the midst of training for my 2nd marathon in nearly 10 years. One day! Just focused on staying injury-free at the moment.

6 miler this morning - I think my allergies are forking with me. Weirdly sore throat. Ugh! I guess I'll go to bed really early tonight.

Olympic this weekend. Half-iron is still 39 days out (and man do I need those 39 days!)
