RunningBlog: Hoey's challenge is killing me! But as we agreed over IM today, it's doing a really good job of motivating us to run. The lead keeps switching between me, him, and another person, and every time I see that I'm in third I have to head out there again. I've done over twelve miles in four days! (That's nearly 20km.) My hamstrings are actually holding up really well; it's the rest of me that's falling apart. My left quad is sore and my lower back is tied up in knots. I think I may have to switch it up to walking for a few days if I'm doing to survive the month.

Oh - and since someone has asked, for running music I usually listen to Podrunner. This guy does a weekly podcast of dance music that's all set to a specific "beats per minute." It's great at keeping me in a rhythm without the distraction of iTunes occasionally throwing up a Disney song. (My other preferred workout music is, of course, Max's mixes.)

It looks like we may have a new challenger, Kris. Take a look at the MeTa thread...

Holy crap, mathowie's in? There goes the #1 spot... :)

Not trying to be a spoilsport, but the rest/walking days sound like a great idea: a quick way to injury is to push the body too much without a proper ramp-up.

No, a reality check is much welcomed, psorr. I took today off (other than walking to work).

wow, great to know you're giving us a chance to catch up with you! :-) I was starting to think you were this supernatural athletic überwoman...

Hardly! Just a still-slightly-overweight girl without a car who can only get motivated to run during the summer. :)

well, it looks like you just pulled ahead again... dammit! :-)

at least you can run in summer, up here in the northern hemisphere it's quite a different story. not fair.. ;-)
