Last week I did 66 km making 1638 km or 1018 miles YTD.
I had a varied week, everything from two outings under 3 km to a 23 km long run. I again had an attack of an allergy that gives me a temperature and makes me feel shit for two or three days. That's the third since early March. I attributed it to hives but I really need to see a doc or an allergy specialist when I get back to my home in Norway in early June 🤞🏼. When not under that I'm in as good shape as any time. Unlike many of you I've managed to get more uninterrupted training during lockdown than under normal times.
73 miles for me last week taking me to 996 for the year. I was tempted to try for the last 4 miles but decided against it. I'm still managing to juggle work and running quite well, it is nice to not have other distractions.
A good week for me. 50.05 miles, bringing me to 817.22 for the year so far.
Saturday's long run was interesting - running in a 50+ mph wind. The first few miles were pretty hard into a headwind, then had to come across the high part of the route across a ridge with the wind straight across - nearly blew in front of cars.
After 10 miles, I turned to have the wind behind me and basically just blew home.
Not such a good week, lost 4 days training due to some discomfort in my right foot. My big toe still has 3 metal pins in from my bunion operation and it seems they were causing the problem. Luckily it seems to have settled down now.
19.2 miles for the week which brings the years total up to 837.76 miles.
Sorry to hear about the pins problem, Steve. I have those knobbly things but I've never had them operated on. I just bought some Saucony Mad River TR trail shoes that have a nice wide toe box but 4 mm drop unlike say Altras. Very pleased with them, for a lesser known shoe.
Interesting about the wind, Trin. We ran over Hay Bluff in something like that once, plus rain. I was going to chicken out but my SO kept going
For me, no recurrence of the allergy and temperature but I keep the antihistamines close at hand. Tomorrow we will try to fly from NL back to Norway so the mileage might drop but the D+ will increase Last week was 111.5 km, 425 km for the month, 1750 km aka 1087 miles YTD.
The joys of running and the impact on the feet (pun intended lol). I reckon my feet have gone up half a size with all the running this year, thankfully no bunion although I have a bone growth on the top of the big toe knuckle.
Anyway, 66.5 miles last week taking me to 1062 miles for the year so far. Legs generally fine and hoping to stay that way.
I'm a 50 year-old male recreational runner, can't call myself competitive, just for the fitness/enjoyment, although entered my first 10k last year (I forget my exact time but managed a mud-caked sub-50) and ran the GNR (my first half) last Sept (1:54:39). Just getting back into it after...
My 12 year old son wants to improve his 800m and 1500m pbs. He's running fit but has just started on the track and has time to do 2-3 training sessions per week. Can anyone advise how long for example it might take to get an 800m pb down from 2min 38 secs to 2 min 30secs? Or a 1500m pb down...
My running (slojog/fastwalk) log used to be on this forum until it was deleted in the update. By way of compensation I have restarted it here. Unfortunately it will no longer have the statistical figures for past years. Starting mileage for this year until yesterday is 153. And there off.......
So, here we go again.
As usual, we will report our mileages weekly with each week ending on a Sunday.
The average daily mileage for 2019 in the year is 5.53 miles, which is 38.72 per week.
The first week is a short one, running up to 6th January. Anyone interested, please let me have you...
