Thread got started late. Ooopsss!

I ran yesterday for 3 miles on the treadmill. It has been raining off and on here for a good week. I also had to do weights.

Overall a decent run. No side cramp.

Now, I'm just praying that the rain stops by Thursday- 8 miles on a treadmill sounds dreadful. Although, I did make 6.25 miles on a treadmill... and I do figure it's mental training!

Great job on the no-cramp run KSH!

Had a small recovery run from the half-marathon this morning, about 5 k. Did not feel too terrible, and mentally it was good to be out there. I shall keep running on some weekday mornings until the fall, but no more long runs!

I did 2.75 miles on the treadmill this morning at a slower pace than normal. I probably should have pushed it more, but it was 5:30 in the morning. LOL

I decided to time myself today on my 5K loop - just on 30 minutes (perhaps 32 I did not wear the stopwatch) and it ended up as 5.5 K according to Google earth!

I had side cramps today. I managed to get them out though.

This week is more of the same, Monday strength, Tuesday 5 miles (3 miles run + 12 mi bike commute), Wednesday 45 min tempo, Thursday 3 mi + strength (usually I skip the run and commute unless I have extra time), Friday rest, Saturday 5 miles, Sunday 11 miles.

18 days to my HM (running on my birthday even!). Getting ready to transition to full time hardcore tri training. Lake is up to 55 degrees...

(Good thing the pool is warmer!)

Did a 5-mile run yesterday evening. I'd been planning on doing 8 miles over the weekend but the weather wasn't cooperating. We've had lots of t-storms off and on. No tornadoes here, though, so no complaints. We're 100 miles from Greensburg. The destruction out there is unreal.--

Our area's big 10K is this weekend. It's a lot of fun - looking forward to it.

Feeling much better this week. Ran 3k with the kids at school. It was hot. First time I've run in the heat - not sure I will be able to handle real heat. Maybe it was just because I was at work and couldn't shower after...

I don't like running in the heat either. This morning it was just 11C (at about 7am) and I had shorts + light long sleeve top. I found myself too hot, and that was quite unpleasant. I'll have to run earlier and earlier during the summer! (Or less and less, until it starts raining and being cold again, which will come soon enough!!!)
