MisfortunesOfVirtue saidWhy would you run 8 miles on a track? No, wait - how did you run 8 miles on a track? That's 32 laps of boring.
Also, if I may, how long have you been running? I noticed you're logging some pretty decent times for your LT workouts, but they don't seem to match what I'm seeing in your pictures.
The indoor track I run on is three lanes. I don't run the inside lane because where the mile stops on the track is nowhere close to the clock I use.
The middle lane is actually almost 9 laps to a mile. I basically have to walk 6 feet back from the start line per mile I want to run.
I was running in the outside lane which was 8 3/4 laps to a mile which is 35 laps for 4 miles, 70 laps for 8 miles, and 105 laps for 12 miles.
I just started running again seriously in the fall of 2009. I had been biking the prior year, but not with any frequency. Back from 1982 - 1996 I was running a lot and I was really good at it.
I don't know how I am supposed to look running all that? I am 6'3", I am not going to be back down to my high school weight of 95 lbs as a freshman or 150 lbs as a college runner.
Plus I have been accused of running like Forrest Gump, so that is why my form doesn't look as good.
