    Yay ! My turn to kick off the week :)

    Ran about 12.3km/7.6 mi this morning, despite my toes being still sore from Saturday's trail.

    Less than a week to go for the half marathon. Feeling pumped !

    I had planned to do another 7 miles this beautiful morning but got talking to a newly minted DPhil from Oxford (her conversation starter was; "A real barefooter!") so I finished up with 11 miles at around 7:35 pace. A great run!

    Ran about 5 miles yesterday and finished the week with 37.5 miles.

    This morning did a mile and a half, legs were knackered some, I blame splitting and stacking wood yesterday afternoon for that.

    Today - 2 hour run Ft Yargo park trails about 10.5 miles, low 80'sF and humid more heat training. Ground has firmed up some but still good for barefooting.

    Ran 7.01 miles with my little girl. Did 2.5 miles in my homemade sandals and rest in my luna mono's. Felt really good and avg'd a 9:52 pace despite the much warmer temps than we are used to. My running seems to be really coming along pretty well which I am very happy for. Starting to think I just might be able to do the 20k trail race on the coast range I been looking at which is at end of the summer. Losing weight, feeling good, healthy, and running well, crap, getting scared because I don't know what this is like.... :)

    Awesome! Glad everything is going so well for you! So, I haven't been on here for awhile. Why do you think you are doing so much better than in the past?

    I really think it took me using the tennis ball to get rid of trigger points. Then after that it took me getting out of the nikes again and back to sandals and barefoot to finally get rid of shin splints. I also think my shorter 30-45 minute easier runs on treadmill daily is helping a lot as well. Yes it's boring, but that makes it easier for me to get off without overdoing it. When I run outdoors I enjoy myself so fully I keep going, way farther than I should. I think of the treadmill as my limiter/governor that keeps me from redlining myself. I have to limit my outdoor runs because I don't seem to know when to quit. I also think losing weight is helping also.

    Are the trigger points everywhere, or just primarily certain areas?

    I havent had them in a long while. They were primarly in my calves and along the inside edge of the shin. Hell, I haven't really had to stretch or roll much even lately. Mostly just kinda go with the flow. When running on treadmill its pretty slow and easy, between 10 min pace and 15 min pace, depending on heartrate or the treadmill program. The tread is smart and auto adjusts speed along with elevation. Pretty cool really.

    Interesting...that is EXACTLY where the one's that cause me the most problems are, too! They turned out to also be THE key to getting rid of most of my PF. Mine went away over time, before, too. That's cuz the more frequently you exercise when they are NOT there, the longer they stay away.

    I seem to have worked myself so hard in the yard over the weekend that my body just laughed quietly every time I thought about active chores today. I fit in a short swim Sunday. However, today I did get in my last EASY semi-long run before my HM Saturday. 6 miles.

    Crazy thing is I am now considering doing a 20k trail run that is supposed to be pretty challenging in August. Super cheap too. It's my wifes birthday weekend that weekend so we may just make a camping trip of it and have a great time. I am also gonna plan on doing a super challenging trail 25k next year. If I like the course I may try their 50k maybe a year or two after that.

    Are you still doing weights? Just amp up the weights for the long, hard stuff. You can save training time exchanging a lot of your runs for strength training. The stronger you are the less energy it takes to run, and the less taxing on your aerobic system. BTW...I jumped from a 7 mile run to 10 mile runs -same exertion level and pace- just by adding in one extra 20-30 minute strength training workout a week. So does this mean you actually might go on some trail runs with us before you die??? :happy:

    4.2 mostly easy miles this morning, with a little bit of pickup over the last mile. Very humid and a bit warm. I was doing the little 1.13 mile loop early on 3x and it was cool to watch how the mist coming up off the fields shifted and moved around.

    I have actually dropped my ST down to once a week, instead of the 3-5 I was doing. I have also changed to where I am doing mostly only the basic bigger lifts like squats, bench press, deadlifts, military press, with a few ab centric (but still full body exercises to a degree). Changing my workouts like this has helped dramatically. Not sure why really. I am all of a sudden losing weight again and am the lightest I've been in 5-6 years. I am seeing muscle definition that I never saw with my 5-6 day workouts where I worked out all the little muscles too. I really just wonder if I was doing way too much. I also do a lot of high incline stuff on treadmill, 8-12%. I hate it but it really seems to be working. I did notice I am starting to develop big muscles probably midway between my knees and ankles on the inside of the shins. It's actually right where I was getting trigger points. Weird. Must have been weak there before.

    As far as trail runs, I don't know. I rarely get up that way anymore and when I finally get the ok (gov't jobs are super slow, but they told me I have the job just have to wait on the official offer) on this new job I believe I will be working a lot of weekends. At least the job will be good for me as I will be walking a lot up and down hills delivering mail.

    40'ish minutes in my luna monos on the treadmill doing incline and decline work while the machine made sure I stayed between 50-80% max heart rate. Great workout. Legs feel so much better as they were a little tight this morning from yesterdays run. Something about the constant burning of the legs when doing these incline decline runs really makes the legs feel good afterwards. Max of 6% incline and -3% decline. Man I'm hungry now. :)

    Half mile. First time I have ran in over FOUR months. Definitely focusing on NOT over-doing it. I have been hiking 3x a week and just started doing water exercises and a small set of daily strength exercises from both my PT and specific to runners. My PT is barefoot/minimalist friendly.

    Second run of the day chasing my son around on his bike. Great fun. Sprint, stop, walk, stop, sprint, jog, stop, jog, walk, sprint and race to end of culdesac. :)

    5 mile run at 5:00 am. 57 deg. f. 77% rh..
    Nice run, came by a couple and ran with them for a while.
    The man told me a story about doing his 1st 1/2 tri and someone stole his shoes so he tried 6 miles bare and stopped to see if someone would loan him shoes to finish (I thought it was pretty impressive).
