Totally look forward to running...

in #exhaust4 years ago (edited)

I just finished a 3.8km run that lasted about 0hh:25mm:31ss !


You can feel it in the air... everyone in Portland is happier, they're excited with the weather, they're excited for Summer... everyone is just happy.

Personally, I'm super excited that my hill sprints run is totally in shade... I'm not sure I'd cope if it was in full sun. Even just walking to it in the sun seems brutal at times.

I usually go running at 10am... that's my lunchtime (it's 12pm in the MidWest) but I had an appointment at 10, and was actually super worried I wouldn't get a run in. I've gone from near-dreading running to nearly not-coping if I can't run. That's way more progress than any pace gains. The appointment ended early (it was a pest control dude who basically told me there was nothing he could do about the mice in the walls, ceiling) and so I happily loped outside.

I have this huge mega hill at the end... I've still never managed to run for the entire 3.8km... the hill gets me every time... but I find myself reserving energy for it and then trying to power up it... and I'm getting closer every time. The souls of my feet and my Achilles still feel sore, but not in any way that stops me. I'm really getting into the mental challenge of running now, and I'm really lucky to have this crazy, massive hill at the end to test myself against.

Interesting thing about the pest control guy... I described a tiny speedy black mouse that I haven't been able to catch... but I've seen 3 times now... and he didn't think it was a mouse. He thinks it's a shrew. Why is a diggy, blind, worm-eater running around my house late at night scaring me and my gal?

Dude! Nice!!! You've got me excited to get my shit together and get back out running. Don't tell Marky or he'll hold me to it hahaha.
I HATE hills. I'm very bad at them. I can run forever on the flat but as soon as I hit an incline... sigh. I guess that's what training is for.
Also- get a cat!

Hahaha, my partner is the same... she just seems to put a lot of effort in but isn't getting anywhere... we've done a couple of fun runs where there is a big hill at the start and it's absolutely my time to shine... I'm really more of a sprinter, so it's a good chance for a burst of effort.

Ahhhh, I'd love a little cat, but my partner is allergic... and we have a trillion cute little birds and bumblebees running around that I'd be worried about introducing a cute little murder machine. In the last two days we've had a new bird come hang out in our yard... they don't seem to fly much, just run around like Beeker from the Muppets. They're hilarious, but I don't think they'd be here if we had a lil guy.

You have uploaded 53 running activities, and 51 of them have been of similar distances (within 10 percent)!
Here are your 5-fastest running activities of a similar distance:

Over these 51 similar activities, you have travelled approximately 194.00 kms at an average pace of roughly 6:54 min/km!
Your latest run was at a pace of approximately 7:35min/km!
Looks like you went a bit faster than usual this time! Nice work!

Hate to disagree with you Mr Exhaust, but I think this pace was: 6:42 min/km

Thems is fighting words.

I believe I've fixed it... Looks like I got confused.. Rather than printing out the pace for the activity being analyzed, it was printing out the pace for the last (slowest) similar activity... or something like that..

Should be good to go for the next run you post.


Oh awesome! I'll test it tomorrow!
