Thanks guys. Here's my question:
Is everyone doing 9.32 miles or 9.3?

I've seen different postings. I did 9.32 but didn't know if I should adjust next time.

Re: run 15k

So running on a black asphalt track (37 laps) was an awful idea. Luckily I live in Ohio, so it was only 82 and sunny - better than I have heard from other cf'ers. Another bad idea? Bringing the ipod, but no headphones. Genius.

Knees AND calves started burning and hurting after the 5k......after the 10k, it was horrendous.

Re: run 15k

I'm ashamed to admit I only lasted (a very slow) 2 miles. My shins were killing me. I look forward to the day this comes back around.

Re: run 15k

Hats off to those of you who completed the 15k. I scaled to 5k per my level on BrandX. 80 degrees and 80% humidity. It sucked.

Good time, i still think it was the good luck fox/rat that did it lol.

Haha can you imagine how lucky a fox/rat foot would be. Forget that lucky rabbits foot.
Your pretty close mate.

Im about 205-210. I was 210, but when i changed from bodybuilding routines to Cf i wanted abs back, so dropped couple pounds, to about 14 stone 10. So im just getting the scale to start creaping back up again now mate. Trying to make sure its good muscular weight. Im finding with this efficient training routine im not stuffing myself like i was before. Just trying to get in 5-6 good clean food meals a day, throw in couple morning and post workout shake and i think thats ok for now.

Re: run 15k

Well I had the goal to set out and do the whole 15k. Sometime after the first 5k my legs started to cramp really badly. I stopped did some strechting and felt good again. So I went back to it and again with the horrible cramps. Not sure what was going on there. So I did high incline walking for the next 30 minutes with no problems.

So sad to say I failed on this one. I didn't want to but I did. Next time a long run comes up even if its only 5k I will be trying this 15k again.
