Ill start the thread. I didn't get to run today because I couldn't get out of the hospital. I was helping the boss write a plan to increase productivity and save $$$$$$. Yuck!! I did run 7 miles yesterday. I have to run tomorrow.

After working until 4am Monday morning I got out on Monday afternoon for a run to try to wake myself up, felt not too bad so did some intervals as work is getting in the way of lunchtime runs and there was no guarantee I would get out today.

My footpod was chucking out random readings so no idea of pace or distance but did 20 minutes easy then 4 x 2 mins then 20 minutes back. Total about 6 miles. Hopefully my legs will start turning over quicker now I'm doing some speedwork as still feel a little slow.

Have brought my kit to work to try to get out for a short recovery run.

I ran with the kids today. Well, I sorta ran. I walked 45 steps and ran 100. About 1 min walk and 1 min run. for 3 km. Felt ok. Shins not hurting too much. Iced hip and calf when I got back. Will do that again on Thursday. Maybe I can run an entire km next week without pain?

I ran intervals on the treadmill today due to the rain. Total of 4.5 miles(1 mile warm up and 1/2 mile of cool down) . Wow I find it really hard to transition from outside to the treadmill. I am so glad to be over the "bug". Hope everyone else is recovering.

Did my "basic" 5K today. Out of my front door, up the street, and then back. A bit boring, but I am doing it faster than a month ago, so that is encouraging. Did a 4.5 miler yesterday. I am wanting to move up to 5 miles, and then 6. There's an awesome 6 mile loop of off-road trails not far away that I want to run instead of walk/hike. That's now my goal. I want to do it before the snow flies and it gets slippery. If the weather cooperates, I should have the time.

Kelownagirl, hope you get your painless km soon! And thank you for all your encouragement. It is greatly appreciated.

Shiraz, Love your forum name. Am trying NOT to partake of your namesake but not having a lot of luck. SO many good shirazes and SO little time.

tattie, do you ever sleep? I would be dead with your schedule. Seriously dead. You rock!

Working until 4am is not a regular occurence! I was up and about to make sure I didn't mess myself up too much, I could've happily slept all day but then would have been awake all night.

Its a beautiful, crisp, sunny autumn day here, hopefully work won't interfere and I can get out for a run at lunchtime - 5 miles scheduled. We recently moved sites and this one is only about a mile away from the sea front so I should be able to get down there today for some fresh sea air.

I ran 3.1 miles on the treadmill. I did intervals slightly, they were .25 to .50 mile intervals but still

I also mixed up the inclines.

I'd much rather be outside but there are times it's dark and cold and the weather doesn't accomodate my wishes. For those who go to the treadmill in the winter, how do you simulate outside running for training purposes? I know the treadmill is easier, right? So if I run 5 miles on the treadmill, it wouldn't carry over to 5 miles outside. How can I offset that?

I've always thought the treadmill was harder than running outside. Running on a moving surface is unnatural - my feet shift around inside my shoes on the treadmill.

I'll probably run on the treadmill this evening, though. The weather looks like it won't accomodate here, either.
