Humid as balls here in BR this morning. One of those still sweating after the shower runs.

I do too. But I love when it’s over.

I findste afternoon runs are easier for me to breathe — it’s hit but not quite as humid. My schedule allows it so it’s just my norm.

Hoooo it's humid as a bitch out there. I look like I just jumped out of a pool!

I did end up missing my two longest runs last week (3.5 and 4mi, respectively) but I'm getting back on it this week. I really like having this plan on Higdon's app because I can see the progressive buildup of mileage. I 100% would've done too much too soon if I was just winging it. I'm feeling faster and fresher after my runs.

Opposite for me. I feel way better on morning runs and it's such a great way to start the day. Unfortunately I can only run mornings on weekends bc I go into work at like 4am mon-thurs.

I’m in LC and I ran on the same day around noon. I really struggled that day. Sweat probably for an hour after I was done.

Went this morning and I couldn’t believe how much easier it was. Now, granted, I’m improving on every run but it was so much easier to breathe today as well. I beat my fastest pace by 38 seconds. Had to be the lower humidity. No question. Fastest pace for a little bit was 9:02.

Downtown was crawling with security and media. Joe Biden will be here today talking up his infrastructure bill. I got pretty close to where he will be before they barricaded everything off and on the way back, I had to take a slight detour. I’m pretty sure I’m on the Secret Service watch list and they’re monitoring my post right about now. Anyway, kind of excited as to how much easier it was to breathe today and I made a mile without stopping for the first time.

Be nice. I’m still running and walking. But I’m pretty sure I ran a full mile today without stopping which is a first since probably HS in 1996.

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread
Have you tried slowing down? You're average speed for that run/walk is a jogging pace.

ETA: What I mean is if you jog 11 min/mile maybe you can go without the walking.

I don’t really change much. I run and I respond what my body tells me. What do you mean slow down? Honestly, I already feel like my pace is quite slow.

I run until I need a break. Start again when I catch my breathe and I’m comfortable to move again.

Is there something that needs to be changed based off those numbers?

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread
I didn’t mean you were doing anything wrong. You will make big advancements just by getting out there routinely. I’m far from an expert but your walk/run time would have been a respectable running only time for a beginner.

Definitely not only running quite yet. Although, I did stop and walk way less than when I started and much shorter times. So like you guys have said, it’s for sure improving each time I go out.

what Oyster is trying to say is that you might need to slow down when you are running, as your average pace is 11 min miles even with walking

if you slowed down to 11 min mile pace while running, you might be able to run the entire time with no walking

I wondered if he was stopping the timer for the walking part?

Gotcha. I feel like I’d be dragging my feet though. It’s a pretty slow pace (to me it is.)

nah

I actually had to turn off the timer cues. Every time the voice would pop up if try to speed up or something like I was supposed to be running faster because of that stupid “trainer.” Finally got tired of hearing it (and interrupting what I’m listening to) and turned it off and I’d see the results when I’m done.

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread
First, congrats for getting out there and getting it in.

I think what some people are trying to say is that starting off running is about building a decent endurance/distance base. Generally, once you develop that base then you work on speed. It really doesn't matter how fast you run right now, its that you can consistently and easily run X miles at X pace without walking or stopping. For some people this eventually becomes their recovery run pace.

As for feeling slow, I understand. When I was younger I was decent fast, running sub 6 min mile splits. When I started running again after a decade I would do 3 miles at an 11 min average pace and be wiped out. It gets better, but even now my recovery run pace is often btw 10:30 and 11 mins/mile.

Running slower at first was more mental than physical at times, but I knew it was better for me. Also I'm older, its ok to be slow now!
