Default Cool Runners - March 2008

I didn't see a March thread started so I hope it's ok that I made one.

My foot is starting to feel better, but I may just walk on the TM tomorrow and resume walk/run on Wednesday. I don't want to push, but thanks everyone for your concern.

Have fun running everyone! Spring is on its way!

Thanks for starting the new month's thread, Diva!

Today is a rest day for me - back at my March mileage goal tomorrow!

I forgot it was a new month! I would've posted in the February thread until June!!!

Seven miles for me. Hit the Zone around mile four, so the rest was cake. There was a bit of a breeze, and I didn't realize it was only 19* outside until I got home and saw the news. No wonder my face was chilly!

I forgot to post for yesterday: 40 mins for the jogging part. Not sure of the mileage, because my sister was walking, and I was just going at her pace.

Diva, thanks for the new thread. I'm with Kara, I would have just kept on posting on the Feb thread, lol.

I haven't run in more than a week - can't wait to get back into it!

I'm staying in the treadmill room at the hotel again so hopefully I can at least do some of that, though I don't really count it like running the way I do when I run outside.

Hello! I'm back, I've done lots of eating, drinking and socialising and only a little running, but I've had a fantastic weekend which is what counts. I did a short run the morning of the wedding, and a 7.5 interval session yesterday, now I'm back home I'm going to get back into it and try for a long run this weekend - but with more rest before it this time!

I saw a few requests for photos - try clicking here. I think that you can view them even if you're not on facebook, if they don't work give me a shout and I'll try to upload them to somewhere else. There are also some more on the hotel's website, but I'm not on any of them!

There's a slight difference compared to the photos that are usually taken of me...

Helen, you look fantastic! Glad the wedding went well!

Laura, I expect a full report from your laptop while your running again...including your laptop's heartrate!

Cheryl, way to go on the forty minutes jogging!

Today was my rest day from running, but it was gorgeous outside so I dragged the kids out for a walk. I'm getting up early to get my run in tomorrow.

Four miles. Check!

It was 58* when I left the house at 6:02 this morning! I felt 20 pounds lighter running without my windbreaker, gloves, and hat! Sunday morning when I ran it was 19*! Quite a change in two days!

Got my four miles done in 35:18 - under a nine minute per mile pace. I was happy! Then I walked the remainder of an hour. I got back feeling terrific. I might add a half mile to a mile walk on the end of all my runs now. It's a great way to cool down! I've been walking for a couple minutes, maybe two or three, after a run, but today's extra mile and a halfish walk really was beautiful.

Kara, do you do any warm up walking before your run? It says to do that with the c25k, but I wondered if folks keep doing that once they get to the straight running part, or does jogging become the new warm up? I usually walk for 5 minutes or longer before, and 10-15 minutes after, which seems to agree with me, but I'm just curious what more experienced runners do.

Hi all - 3.5 miles for me today. Will get a long run in later this week.

Cheryl - I ALWAYS walk before and after I run. If I'm on the treadmill, I'll walk a 1/4 mile at 4mph; outside, I do the first song on my running play list - so about four minutes. I walk to cool down, too, which makes stretching that much easier

Kara - I love watching your little running girl packing in the miles - and four miles in 35 minutes? Rock on!

Helen - I looked at the pics form your sister's wedding - you both look gorgeous!! I like your running one, too! You have wonderful legs!!

How's everyone else?

Heather

40 mins jogging for me. Was going for 45, but my sister showed up, so I quit early.

Heather, thanks for sharing what you do.

Helen, you look great in all your photos!

I'm really bad about warming up: I don't do it. I usually do walk and stretch as a cool down, but when I'm getting started, I just go.

Kara - I'm posting this from the treadmill, just for you

Cheryl, I just start running. Literally, right out the front door. I do walk at least a half mile to cool down and I ALWAYS stretch for about ten minutes after I've finished.

Heather, thanks for the compliments on my littler running girl! Some days I feel like she's just chugging along and some days I feel like there's so far to go!

Laura, you make me laugh! Enjoy your time on the hotel treadmill!

I got in my five miles this morning but it was a battle the entire time. I still came in at 46:30, though. I don't know if what I ate last night was too much (it was a lot of protein, no junk to speak of), if I was just not feeling great (I'm kind of sad that Tom's not back yet), if I ran too hard yesterday, or if it was just some unexplained hump day deal. I pushed through. My goal is to RUN all the training miles because I want to RUN the whole marathon, so I figure I'm going to have to deal with some feeling unmotivated on race day and this is just a little splash of training for that. Hopefully tomorrow's run will be better.

Off to get breakfast.

Kara
