Re: run 15k

I scaled to 10k and finished in a crappy 64:47. It was 99 degrees with about a 15-20 mph wind in my face on the return leg. That wasn't fun. My lips are now very chapped.

Re: run 15k

84:45

I'm posting this from work the day after because upon finishing the run, I fell into my pool, showered, ate, and then passed out on my bed feeling very sick and nauseous.

What also didn't help was the fact that apparently there are flying ants saturating the air here in the evening, and my sweat-covered body was like flypaper for them. Ant bites everywhere. Not fun.

Re: run 15k

Scaled to 7 miles...ran it in 1 Hour and 18minutes. Hot night in Atlanta but beautiful. I ran along the river. Body was feeling fine. Have a relatively sore upper body today - glad its rest day.

Around mile 4 i found myself repeating a poem from my English Lit days....thought i'd share it.

e.e. cummings
i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday;this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any--lifted from the no
of allnothing--human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

Kelly you poet.

Even a scaled 7 miles is a good workout!!

Re: run 15k

I did 7 miles and had to stop in this dusty dry Iraq weather. I finished that in 68' 34". I went back tonight and did the other two miles, I didn't clock it and then did about 12 minutes on the C2, and some abs stuff and a few pullups (50 or so, but who's counting?) and dips. I do the WOD's a day behind the main page. I had a PR of pullups a few days ago, which is now 19 perfect form DHPU's.

Re: run 15k

I only managed 6 miles this morning. did the 6 in 49:02. Developed a nice blister at mile 3 and continued on for another 3 before I started running awkwardly because of it and didn't want to cause injury just to say I completed the WOD. Needless to say, I am disappointed I couldn't bring myself to finish...

Re: run 15k

Scaled to 6 miles and ran it in 59:18. This is the farthest I have every run and I feel a sense of accomplishment! I am sitting here at work struggling to stay awake, all I want to do is go to sleep.

I started this thread in December, so you can see the progress I have made.
