4678.1 + 2.1 = 4680.2

I'm only counting miles where I manage to 'run' (for some definition of run). Or, anything around 12ish minutes a mile. Increasing my speed this 'run' really helped me increase my cadence which helped me double my distance over last time. All in all, I'm happy.

Nine miles. Three stops to cross streets. That's a record for me.

Had heard somewhere that when you can feel yourself going down with a cold running for around 30min raises your metabolism and helps you fight it off.

Didn't work.

4795.5 + 2.4 = 4797.9

2 miles in 22 minutes. I'm pretty happy. I started a few weeks ago at barely being able to hit 1 mile in 15 minutes and now I felt like I could have pushed a little harder and gotten down to the 10 and a half minute area.

Can I have extra points as most of that was running on compressed snow on top of refrozen sheet ice? A spaniel on a lead is not an asset in these circumstances.

Missed a few months of running, was lazy and inactive. Back into the swing now, here is the last four runs since I've restarted.

4869.6 + 5.9 = 4875.5

PT: 121

I know I'm the new guy here, but welcome back!

4875.5 + 3 = 4878.5

Averaged 11:12 pace. Not speedy to be sure, but considering that was my first 3 mile run, I'm stoked. Now just need to get my speed more consistent and my time down. Hoping to start running a 5k or two this summer.

On holiday in Cornwall so lots of hearty moor or beach runs. That was up to the top of our nearest iron age hill fort

@webzter: just wanted to say your pace and range is improving much more impressively than mine when I started. I hope you're enjoying it.

@Jumble Thanks! I definitely am enjoying it. However, I have a serious gait problem that I need to address though and I'm not really sure how to. I'm going to run on my treadmill and take a video so I can get a better look and hopefully get some feedback. I think I'm doing ok on not heel striking but I'm lifting my left leg too high, especially at lower speeds. It's causing some discomfort along my left shin.

A trip to a running clinic is in order I think.

It's worth trying a few sports shops. Some of my local shops will video your stride in the hope of flogging you some shoes. Of course, some have got wise and charge a deposit on your next pair of shoes, but its worth a try.

4903.2 + 1.2 + 1.5 + 1.7 = 4907.6


Visiting a friend out in the midwest, and while running around his neighborhood, found the demonhell hill from hell. About 300 meters, straight up. It's seriously like one of those streets you get when you search for steepest streets in the world.

On first attempt, made it once, and stumbled home.
Second attempt, made it once at a good pace, and about 75% of the way the second time at a crawl.
Third attempt, made it once at a good pace, second time at a bleh pace, and third time at a crawl.

I'll probably get two more cracks at it before I leave and head back home to flat territory. Definitely a nice change of pace from running the same flat streets over and over.

Oh god that was bad. Fun run at ~7pm, still 32 degrees and very muggy. Nauseated and dizzy at the finish line for the first time at a race.

Saw a girl reading a book on a rock by the sun in the middle of the river!
And I finished my exams. so I had to celebrate, with my longest run ever!
YEa im a bit high !
