    First 3 of 600 training miles over the next 16 weeks or so

    My shortest run in months but I'm super pumped to get started.

    Been running in fresh foam 1080v10, will be getting some v11 soon. And also tried out the fresh foam more V2... Reeeaaaally cushioned which I might appreciate being out hours in end.

    Hope everyone's having a good week so far 🤙

    So far, so good.  Cold yesterday, hot today.

    3/600.  Looks like such a gap but you will make it up quickly, especially when you get to those long runs. 
    Are you training together, or only on the long runs?

    Fresh Foam More V2 is a shoe?

    I really do like the v11s I got...as much as I liked my Brooks, these are more comfortable.  Going to order another pair before too long...but if the more v2 is suggested, perhaps will look at that.

    I believe there's a V3 out now too. They don't seem to be as well stocked as the 1080s. My only concern is I have heard the outer sole wears a little quicker. As alot of my miles will be on grass and river trails it shouldn't be an issue.

    Cold then hot seems to be a recurring theme for everyone at the moment!

    Good info - pretty much all of my miles are on hard surfaces so that would be a concern....

    Wow. Good luck with with the training. I am looking forward to hearing about your progress. Today I snuck in 4.5 miles right before I went to get my 2nd Covid vaccine. I can’t predict how I will feel over the next few days so thought I should at least get one run in before. The weather was also amazing.

    The 1080s have a blown rubber sole which seems pretty durable.. the more's are something called EVA (or something similar) I'll keep you updated on how they last. Very comfy shoe though

    My back to back for the weekend. Really need to get the longer runs down to around 12min pace (5 miles every hour) will take some getting used to the walk/run thing.
  • F Me In The BrainF Me In The Brain this knows everybody from other commetsPosts: 23,804
    Nice I like the back to back.
    Your average time this am was a bit faster than my fastest mile this morning.  Lol.  I am sure it is tough to slow down when you know you can run at that speed!

    Cooling down from my morning session.
    90 mins running was a goal the PT set for me when he let me start running again and this was the first day I did it.  Right on schedule, which feels good.  (My muscles do not feel good but that is what builds us back up!)

    Now I believe I can start looking at this as being "healed" and what my training structure can look like for the rest of the year.

    My Saturday afternoon... Let's go! 👌
  • F Me In The BrainF Me In The Brain this knows everybody from other commetsPosts: 23,804
    Right on.  No drinking for 30 days right now for me (do this every year) so you can have a beer or three for me!

    Great job. I know you are on a specific training schedule now. What is the longest training run you will be doing?

    Awesome. It is great that you are back to your training schedule. I know you probably were anxious to get back to it. It sounds like your PT did a great job. Here is to staying injury free. 

    I did a tough 4.6 run today. Was going to to go for 5 miles but listened to my body and stopped a bit short of that. I think I am still getting over my vaccine from a few days ago. I feel fine but maybe pushed it too soon. But I did take a nice long cool down walk after since the weather is so nice - so between the walk and the run I got 6 miles of exercise.

    There are times to push through and times not to, and this sounds like a definite “not to”, so good for you for listening to that.

    Anyone have any recommendations for dealing with shin splints? This is something I’ve started experiencing in the past few months. It sucks.
  • F Me In The BrainF Me In The Brain this knows everybody from other commetsPosts: 23,804
    Stretching....do you have a roller?  I think they can be helped by working on your calves regularly with a roller.  We have "the stick" in a few sizes.  It can feel less than great but it loosens things up and I found that relieved the shin splints.
    If you already do that every day I'm not sure what else to share.
    I remember a girlfriend long ago used to get them and she iced her shins but I don't think that is preventative.  (Ice helps most everything feel better, of course.)

    By next month we should regularly be in the 20-30 mile range and early July we have an overnight 50 miler that we have planned. After that we will work back up to around 30 miles again before September.

    Nice! Got some good miles in. Must feel good to start thinking forward a little now.

    That is just straight bananas. 
    Laughed at what he ate - and he went from a somewhat normal shoe to those crazy vapor family shoes from Nike where it looks like the shoe is some sort of Disney Flubber Deal. 
    I would like to run a mile in those shoes, just to try and see if they make much difference for a normal schlub out there running. 

    Love the part where they hand him a note about continuing beyond 100 Miles to go for the next record.  Too funny.

    So, he ran that all on a track?

    400 laps, baby!  (and then keep going!)
    Wow.

    A nice 5 miles in today.  Felt good - was warm out and got a heck of a sweat in to start the day.
    Still reading, working on what my schedule will look like -- is challenging/fun to try and just what craziness I want to choose to commit to.
    Reading about that nutjob 100 Mile run is inspiring, for sure.
