About 8 miles at a fun pace...just cruizen along
1 mile pavement run, barefooted, and buzzed -thank you beer! Followed by a 3 mile walk in the woods with more beer! Lol! This beer may have lead to some photobombing on my part - heh heh heh. Part of my run actually included running through sprinklers on the grass and the tire-swing at the park - but shhhhh!
Nice 6 mile run at 5:15 am. 82 deg. f., 70% rh..
Saw rabbits and 1 lighting bug.
Last run of the week for me this week. Total miles 24.
Thursday - upper body ST workout
Saturday - morning run at Rabbit Hill park 70F very hi humidity, forgot to charge my Garmin so ran by feel...4+ miles tempo then 2+ cooldown.
4 miles yesterday, slow and easy
This week consisted of 5 runs. they were all between 3 and 5 miles or so. I found my Garmin 305 in a junk box while looking for something else. Having not used it in over a year I thought I would charge it and use it the next morning to check the distance of 1 of my routes. Next morning came around and I went to put the Garmin on. Than I had a thought, would I really want to know the distance and pace? And I decided that I would rather run and feel pleased with the pace and estimated distance than face the disappointment of numbers that the Garmin might show at the end of the run. The Garmin now rests in a junk drawer in the garage. RIP Garmin 305, I am now gadget free and feel a heck of a lot better for it. No worry about pace or heart rate zones, just run like I did when I started running for fitness 40 years ago. As I have come to terms with my age and realize that PR's are a thing of the past (except barefoot ones), I've decide to just run for the enjoyment that running brings.
1 + mile in flip-flops across stores and parking lots cuz I forgot to officially work it into my schedule - heh heh heh. As I was running on the flip-flops, I became acutely aware they actually replicate what running on muddy trails feels like! I will have to include them in some of my running.
Saturday - 4 miles in Lunas running on gravel, through tall weeds, and stickers with husband and one daughter. Had one 1/2 inch thorn go through my sandal, but the only part of me that got skin cut was my finger when I thought it was a lodged pebble and tried to brush it free.
Later in the day I was able to swim 20 + 10 minutes
Sunday was a much needed rest day, as I have another long run tomorrow, which will be my first really long one almost all by myself.
About 8 miles of intervals, the faster bits were probably 4 miles worth, all at 7:30 mm pace or faster for between 80 and 400 meters at a time...was fun ;-)
All STG, and my soles got sore for the first time in a long time due to the high pace.
No blistering or abrasions though.
Went for a 7 km run yesterday, felt good. I haven't been running much, too busy working on the beachbody challenge. I did 10 km two weeks ago as well!
I did get up to Edmonton at the start of the month for the Spartan Sprint, managed to improve my standing from last year, finished 3rd of 32 in my age group, top 10% overall! Lots of mud, I loved that part!
Saturday, 1.5km barefoot walk on a treacherous gravel road. Probably "runnable" for some. Difficult to walk on for my inexperienced feet.
4.5 mile or so on a nice cool morning. Started nice and easy but towards the last mile or so I was like a horse that smells the barn, as I ran the last or so at a decent clip. Now to see how much blood I can donate to the mosquitoes on the golf course, they are horrible this year.
Congrats on the 20 miles Laura. You have certainly done things the right way. New guys with distance goals - follow Happysongbird's routine.

I have been going no gadgets on my known routes and it is very enjoyable. Also on my last long run since I was with others that were setting the pace. But, I just can't give up the GPS completely. Not that I am anyway near fast, but I use it to keep my pace slower and also it gave my wife a little less worry when I showed her the track back feature.
For this week, I did about 3 more runs, one bf, the rest in sandals, a couple more swims, a hike, and tried to do some bit of weights every day. This is keeping me sane as I prepare to move myself and children several hundreds of miles in a couple of weeks.
Late, I know.
Last week I had only 33.5 miles total with a 21 miles long run and .5 mile coold down walk.
This makes the fourth 20+ miles for the Summer but I am going to dial it back for the next three weeks or so as I feel like my body needs a break, so I am going to listen to my lazy body a little bit...maybe
All this weight for a 5 mile run? I don't carry anything for a run under 2 hrs.
Looks like everybody's runnign is going really well.
Do people use compression sleeves only for therapeutic reasons? I usually have annoying calf, Achilles, and ankle tightness for a couple days after jogging. After getting a set of sleeves for my calves I have noticed a better tolerance for working the muscle and joint.
Well, I've also used them to help keep the lower legs warm along with the feet in colder weather. Yeah, they don't cover the feet, but if the legs are kept warm, they pump warmer blood into the feet.
