    To all interested in joining a daily running log, I'm starting the first thread here (see my other post in the running forum)

    4.17 miles easy on the bike path. I'm trying to keep a bead on my pace because I have been running too fast without the training to hold it long enough, so even short runs have been feeling difficult. Tonight was good--a comfortable 8:02 per mile, but I built up to it:

    .08 = :36
    1 mi = 8:27
    1 mi = 7:56
    1 mi = 7:52
    1 mi = 8:01
    .08 = :33

    My goal is to run with my club at a decent clip (around 7:20 per mile) for 5 miles.

    Pretty specific there! icon_smile.gif

    Did speed track workout--2.5 miles jog there at about a 7:15 pace to warm up. At track:

    4x1800, averaging between 6:18 and 6:24/mile pace, with 200 jog between each.

    2.5 mile jog home, about an 8-min/mile pace.

    So almost 10 miles total.

    Yep, my friends call me 1/100th. I'll reign it in. ;)

    Actually, I'm trying to figure out why I'm not regaining fitness more quickly (besides the undeniable truth that I laid off all winter eating garbage and moaning about the cold, and have made paltry efforts to get it together) so I'm looking at numbers a lot.

    I normally do, too, but my Garmin broke off my wrist on a particularly bumpy bike leg in a triathlon a few weeks ago, and there are no mile markers when I run icon_smile.gif

    I use logyourrun.com to measure mine. Good route tracing tool there.

    So i saw this and it motivated me to go out and get a 'baseline' for my 5k run training that i'm going to start soon.
    i ran approximately 1 mile in 10 min 12 seconds. and I don't really run outdoors so I have no idea if that's a good/bad/neutral time. then i switched to walking/running intervals. until i got back home

    Good, bad or neutral is dependent. Not everyone is going to run a 5 minute mile.

    As you run more you will start to get a feel for what you can do, and will have good and bad days. Being new to running I would say it is good as it is faster than you were before. It takes time to gain speed and distance so I would suggest not focusing so much on what others are doing and more so on your progress.

    but cutting time off a 5k is a black art.

    the only thing duller than being forced to watch a foot race is hearing someone discuss their run.

    it ranks right there with woman's golf. icon_rolleyes.gif

    You have a lot of time, and if you start now you're bound to be impressed by what you'll accomplish in October.

    And all are far more entertaining than your posts. No one is forcing you to read anything here and yet you feel the need to come back and be a douche.

    Monkeypuck, glad I finally looked at your profile to discover someone who doesn't look like Michael Myers in the thumbnail. That main picture scared the shit out of me at first. icon_lol.gif

    I like it because it shows the family resemblance between me and the boy and to be fair, he looks far more terrifying looking than me. I really should get around to an updated picture.

    Ran 30 minutes (4.22 miles after an hour bike this morning (a "brick" workout in tri language). Supposed to be an easy run just to get the legs moving but was feeling strong. Did about a 7:08 pace which was faster than expected. I think my core and leg workouts are paying off. That and the fact that we finally had a day without too much heat and humidity.

    Followed the 30 minutes with 6 barefoot striders (100 yard barefoot sprints on a soccer field) to focus on foot plant and then a 5 minute cool down jog to the local coffee shop for a bagel with peanut butter.
