Felt really good after my run on Friday, had every intention on going out Saturday too but between work & helping a friend plan her wedding, there was no time. I got a swim & a run in on Sunday, did swim more than I ran but still got there. Today I was sore so taking it easy.

Hope everyone is doing well & beating the heat!!!!

Enjoying the cooler weather by the lake and made it 5 miles with HILLs yesterday! Great run but today my right shin/lower leg feels very tight so I'll probably bike instead. Good work everyone!

I did not run last weekend, I was away in camping and went for a hike with the boyfriend instead. We made it to the top of the mountain, climbing about 550 meters high on a 10.7 km hike. It was amazing

I kicked off my 11 weeks half marathon training program this morning with a 5k tempo run (average pace of 5:54min/km, time of 29;31, my personnal best for a 5k!) It was my first real workout since the half and my first run since last thurday : I broke a sweat but I felt so good after!

I wanted to post a little picture of our running group. We do 2.7-3.1 miles twice a week and a longer run on Sunday. We also carpool to races.

Defense: thanks for the photo what a great picture of your group.

Turbo wow congrats on getting back into running so quickly after your half marathon that's really smart. I'm going for a hike myself today with my husband and dogs while on vacation I'm really looking forward to it.

Running has been getting a little bit hard to do here every day especially with the hills so yesterday I rented a bike And made it 18 miles - wow, that's a killer on the legs when you're going uphill. Today I ran just under nine minute miles. I did four of them & just couldn't make it any further but it was hot and very hilly once again so I'll take it.

defenestrator : nice picture of your running group

lm3898 : nice workouts!!! Going away and running other routes is always a challenge, they always seem to be much more hilly than the one we are used to run, no? hehe

devadiva : is it still hurting a bit?

***

I ran a 6k last night at 6:49, it was like 30 C degrees and I pretty much wanted to die. Confort zone, OUT!

Good work getting back to 10k's deva - hope everything continues to feel ok - you are smart not to push it. How are water aerobics going?

Did a 4.5 mile run this am - it was hot! I stopped each mile to do some sit ups and pushups which was good.

Keep hydrated everyone it's a hot summer!

Hi all! Went camping this week and did a lot of hiking but little running. I did 10 miles today - it was cloudy, windy and really humid. Not a great run but I made it.

I am running my first 10k next weekend. Any advice?

Good luck Cherry! 10k's are my favorite - they give you a good chance to find a great pace - I generally shoot for 30 seconds slower per mile than my 5k pace for the first five miles then I match my 5k pace for the last mile and sprint the last .2! Hope it goes well!

Welcome back to running deva! Hope you're feeling better & the hikes went well.

Just finished a local 5k race - despite it being about 96 degrees I had a new personal best!! 24:52 which is about 14 seconds faster than the last time I ran a timed 5k race [about 1.5 months ago I think]!! I'm SO happy w/ that 100/747 women overall & 405/1500 total. Woohoo!

Sometimes I still can't believe I'm a runner...anyone else ever feel that way??
