(Starting these early since I’m guessing exhaustion won’t have me getting up too early tomorrow :wink:)

Cleveland corporate challenge today. It’s a 6xmile road relay with all of the big corps running 3 guys and 3 girls. There were SO many ringers this year it was a joke. Lots of guys AND girls that I know from local races who were running that do NOT work for these places. So lame. So I was kinda pissed and it helped me run well.

2 mile warm up. It was windy but pretty nice out.
I was the anchor leg and we were in like 24th when I started. We finished in 8th I think and I ran 4:53 mile! Not bad for an old dude!

I then ran 5.4 miles home to get a few extra miles in.

Definitely leaving #allthemiles to you guys this weekend. :laugh:  My feet are so sore!  1.25 on the mill feeding the streak monster.

Funny story from yesterday. I was understandably really struggling at the end of the run. My pace had gone way down and I was just shuffling home any way I could get there those last 3 miles. Except that when I hit 49.3 miles my Garmin beeped and said low battery. :shocker!:  I was like oh hell no. I want this thing recorded. All of it. :mutmad: And I went from a 13 minute mile 49 to closing the last .7 in sub 8 minute pace. :laugh:  That was the motivation I needed I guess because I would’ve sworn that could’ve never happened after 9 hours of running. :laugh:

Great job!  You’ve been incredibly busy lately, cut yourself a little slack. :hug:

Ditto MD on that!

5 things
1) Garmin on clear days seems to hit mile markers slightly sooner but oh well
2) mile 1 9:37  well look at that first single digit mile
3) @ 1.5 my morning lady with two dogs … big smile .. "look how fast you are getting"
4) mile 2 another single digit .. oh hell … now I have to try :meh:
5) 3 … 9:40 avg. not sure what happened ..but i'll take it

Peace
the old newb :cool:

“oh hell ... now I have to try”

:laugh: I love that!  Sounds like something my internal dialogue would produce. :grin: 

Nice job not only trying, but succeeding. :cool:

Looks like a nice run!  How did it feel?
Parent - - By flyguy (Stump Grinder) [us] Date 2018-07-29 1:16 PM
Didn’t feel too bad.

Achilles a little tender now but whatever
Parent - - By Mickeyd Date 2018-07-29 3:25 PM
:cry: not the Achilles.  the repaired one?
Parent - - By flyguy (Stump Grinder) [us] Date 2018-07-29 3:33 PM
Yeah. It will never be 100% normal.
Parent - By Mickeyd Date 2018-07-29 3:47 PM
:sad: that just sucks.
Parent - By NYCoach [us] Date 2018-07-30 8:11 AM
great job my brother!
Parent - - By Mickeyd Date 2018-07-29 3:27 PM
More active recovery today. Got the dog out for a walk. Not our normal 2 miles but probably close to 1.5. It was a little warm for her. Then 3.1 easy on the mill. My feet are still pretty sore but improving with movement.
Parent - By flyguy (Stump Grinder) [us] Date 2018-07-29 3:33 PM
Impressive as hell
Parent - By NYCoach [us] Date 2018-07-29 5:17 PM
