Shut Up Legs Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com Wed, 29 Mar 2017 05:00:31 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Mon, Mar 27, 2017 <p>Medium mileage run today. I got to run a full 7 miles today! It was... what&#39;s the word?... oh right, SOAKING WET. Just the usual shananigans plenty of puddle splashing etc. Shout out to Mike for my sick new leopard print running shirt. No, of course those aren&#39;t mud splotches, why would you even think that? #longroadsend</p> Mon, 27 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Mar 24, 2017 <p>First invite of the season today, it was, well, interesting. I ran the mile and here&#39;s pretty much how it went: I started out pretty fast&nbsp; cause that&#39;s how I usually race, start out fast and then back off the pace a little. The only problem is that everyone else chose the opposite race strategy, starting off slow and then picking it up. Combined with the fact that my first lap was a little fast around a 67 lets just say it didn&#39;t go so well. After the first lap everyone took off and I kinda got spit out the back and was all over the place mentally with everybody flying past me. I tried to pull it back together a little bit at the end and I almost caught the guy in front of me with my kick, but someone in the stands told him I was coming and he sped up. In the end I just about tied my time from last week, it was only about a half a second slower this time which means at least I was consistant and I can&#39;t really be mad about that. #lessonlearned #we&#39;llget&#39;emnextweek #longroadsend</p> Fri, 24 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Mar 23, 2017 <p>Very VERY cold pre-meet run today, but who needs hands anyway? They can just freeze off right? All things considered though it wasn&#39;t too bad. Nothing is ever so bad when you&#39;re all suffering together. Also, make sure you know what your getting into when you try to splash people in puddles cause there is a good chance that you will end up just as wet as they are. But you can&#39;t get more wet than soaked right so whats there to lose?</p> Thu, 23 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Mar 22, 2017 Wed, 22 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Mar 21, 2017 <p>Up to 6 miles a day this week. Eventually we&#39;ll get up to 6-7-8 it wont be as high as I was once upon a time, but Im okay with that. We&#39;ll get back up for XC season but we decided it wasn&#39;t neccessary to get back up to 6-8-10 for track season. Pretty fun run today, went out behind imFlash and only had to move for a giant 6-wheeler truck once so that was good. Came back and had 20 minutes to finish up on the bike, we had a pretty good group all biking, and somehow somewhere someone found a tennis ball so that was pretty great. Shout out to Austin and Thom and cupcakes. #longroadback</p> Tue, 21 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Mar 20, 2017 <p>Pretty sweet speed workout today. Im running the mile at the invitational on Friday so I did the 800 workout instead of the 2 mile one. It was pretty dang quick, but that was how it was supposed to be. That and most of my dudes ran the 2 mile workout cause they&#39;re all running the 2 mile at the invite. Nothing against the guys who ran the 800 workout with me they&#39;re great. I just miss the other dudes. They&#39;re gonna wreck that 2 mile. #longroadback #Imcomin #watchyourtail</p> Mon, 20 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Mar 18, 2017 <p>Cross train day today cause the knee was a little tempermental after the speed yesterday. I went and used the stationary bike at the Legacy Center... It was pretty boring not gonna lie. #needtofixmyrealbike</p> Sat, 18 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Mar 17, 2017 <p>Ran the infamous 20x400&#39;s workout today with Teapot and Big T since we all missed it last week. We only did three of the sets instead of all four but it was still pretty great. We didn&#39;t have any that were over pace, but we MAY have had a few that MAY have been a little fast, and I may have SLIGHTLY been leading on those laps. Shout out to the squad for showin up to help pace some of the last ones. Don&#39;t get much better than that. #awesomeweekplusaday</p> Fri, 17 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Mar 16, 2017 Thu, 16 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Mar 15, 2017 Wed, 15 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Mar 14, 2017 Tue, 14 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Mar 13, 2017 Mon, 13 Mar 2017 06:00:00
