Ran 8 miles this weekend.Easy type of pace. about 8:30 per mile today on 4 mile run.

My car is in the shop. Been there for weeks now. If i don't get the car back that means my season of 5k runs will be over before it starts.

I would have to save up for a while to get used vehicle.

I lost a lot of running wind with the weather and loss of vehicle. It was too cold to run outside for 2 weeks or so.

iv decided once and for all that im going to get my body fat percentage straightened out and actually MAINTAIN it.
Good for you. Running on a treadmill is very rewarding if the weather outside sucks or it's too dangerous on the streets.

The thing about the treadmill my dad bought the family a few years ago...it has a tendency to shock people. If I walk on the treadmill for too long without touching the railing then static electricity builds up and I get shocked when I touch it again. I hope that doesn't happen to you.

With MY luck it will definitely happen. lol


Iv never owned a treadmill though so I guess we'll see. I like the idea of running or walking while watching a movie. seems like it would make time go by quicker.

In my experience it does. I have an exercise machine (sort of like an elliptical) that I have in front of my tv, and I'll stay on it for three hours sometimes watching a movie or binging a tv show. I figured some days I would spend 3 hours (or more) plopped in front of tv and be surprised that so much time has passed and that if I exercised instead of sitting that time would move at a similar pace, and so far it has.

Ran 22 miles last week. Got a heel injury.

I stopped running as soon as i felt the injury being bad so I've been recovering quickly.

I got a gps watch so hopefully i can get back into mostly barefoot running and running on grass for training.

This should counter my chance of injury.

My problem is heel-striking, i believe.

Ran 30 minutes yesterday, ran up stairs for 10 minutes today. Also ran 13 minutes today outside.

Things have been going great. i recovered quickly from the injuries and have been gettin in 20 miles per week, mon-fri runs.

I'm thinking of runnning in a 5k in march, there is one on a sunday so I'll see.

It may depend on if i'm close to 100% or not.

I've been doing easy runs mostly, on half the days i mix in a mile hard during my easy runs. On Friday i was surprised when i banged out a 6:22 mile split on my hard mile during the easy run.

Right now chasing the goal of breaking 20 mins outdoors in 5k and also finishing in top 10 % in all races.

I have STrava so i've been running with my phone so there hasn't been much of a need to report. I've been doing 20 miles a week and things have been going great.

I did a tempo run of 3 miles today at 21:54 or so so that was really good for that effort. I ran a mile easy before it.

my car is still in the shop but i should get it back by the end of next week so hopefully in April i can start the 5k season.

Breaking 19 minutes on the 5k is looking like it could definitely happen by the end of the year.
