Rhiko, Good luck at your race. You'll do fine!

Tabbycat, Great run. I understand about the darkness. I'm limited to where I run because of that.

Diva-Hope your dog is doing well!

Well, after my 10 miles on Sunday, I had some discomfort in my previous injured foot. Not pain really and not bad. I did not take anything for it but I did ice it. I rested yesterday and its feeling fine today. It only flares up on long run.

I'm running after work today-5 miles. The weather here is crazy. The temps are dropping during the day and its supposed to be 41 F although it will feel like 29 F! Brrrr.

Devadiva, I'm so jealous! I would love a little dog to jog beside me. Great job on the ten mile, monmis12. I'm very impressed! And yes, it is definitely getting cold here too. I whipped out my brother's ironic 90s-kids-movie sweatshirt to bulk up against the weather. It's the only item of clothing I have that is both A) something I'm willing to get sweaty, and B) thick enough for cold weather. I need to go shopping for some real clothes.

I'm proud of myself for the run itself today, because it was outside and I managed again to pull off running for thirty minutes straight. Doing it a second time means that this is actually something that can be a consistent practice and that the first time wasn't just good luck, haha. On top of which, I controlled my breath during the run and recovered it much better afterwards, despite the cold conditions (Thanks to some good advice from the forums about slowing down.) I have no idea what number of miles it was, because my map seem incorrect for how slow I was going versus the number of miles I did, but I ran the park twice. That was the same distance I was doing with interval running and walking. I partly credit changing my playlist. They're no longer five minute running songs and three minute walking songs. Anyway, I'm pleased.

Congrats PollifaxFive!

I just got back from a 7 miler that almost didn't happen - it snowed last night and when I came into work this morning the sidewalks were covered in ice.

But the sun came out late this morning and I decided to chance it - they were about 90% clear. It was really cold - 30 degrees and windy, but I was flying. 7 miles at 7:56 MM.

One of my better times and not bad for having to take it easy in places as to not wipeout!!

Jen

WOW that's some fast mileage Jen!

I ran 5K on treadmill in 24:30 this morning, so just over 8 minute miles. Fastest ever. Two weeks til the Turkey Trot!

Thanks Jen for the advice.

I did 10k yesterday and found I could cover that easier after doing the fast 5ks as going slower was more comfortable, especially on my joints.

Did a fast 5k again today though as there was just not enough time to run the distance and get ready for work.

Back to 10ks soon.

Had a great run yesterday after work. Did a little over 5 miles right at a 10 min mile.

This am, I did 5 miles before work. It was cold but I was not during my run. Temperature was around 28 degrees F. I wore heavy running tights and a heavier type under armour shirt. I also wore some thin knit gloves. Strength training after work.

Finally hit my goal of 18 miles yesterday! My time was really pretty good, too - 2:29:23. But boy, my Achilles is paying for it today!

Thanks for the good wishes everyone!

FINALLY managed to do some sort of workout - 2 miles walk/running over the weekend. I gotta say it felt good to start back up a bit!

I did a slow, sore 1/2 hour run today. My trainer kicked my a$$ Tuesday, so I'm not surprised. I'm planning on something longer Saturday morning.

I just did 3.12 miles in 38 1/2 minutes. That's a good solid time for me. It was cold out, and my legs still felt heavy. I'm thinking the weather is what's making my legs feel heavy - is this true for any of you? I'm not sure if it's temperature, humidity, air pressure, or a combination, but I just don't feel as good since it got cold out.

Happy news - a Fleet Feet just opened 4 miles from my house! No more half-hour drive - yahoo!

Yesterday, I ran 11 miles. It was the first Saturday I have NOT run a 5k race in three months. It went great. Beautiful weather.... Felt like I could have run more (with a pit stop and water, of course).

I'm doing my first half marathon a week from today. I'm easing up on my running this week in preparation.

I am running a 5k Thanksgiving day fun run with my niece. Its untimed and no awards so no pressure to race it. I plan on running it nice and slow.

I got up this morning and it was wonderfully sunny so I thought it was going to be nice day for a run. Turns out it was 6 degrees out. I took the lesser of 2 hells and decided to hit the treadmill.

13.12 miles! It sucked, but I was watching football, so it was bearable!

Getting excited about the Turkey Trot Thanksgiving morning - I plan to run ALL OUT and get a PR!

Good luck on your first 1/2 monmis12!!
