Rules: Post each Sunday, only post miles you ran (not swimming, biking, or hiking), post zero if you ran zero, stick to the training schedule and gradually build your mileage, contact a coach if you need advice or need to explain an entry, and encourage each other.

How can I calculate my mileage?:

Run a mile or two off of the track at what you think your average pace is, and then run another mile on the track to try and maintain that pace – time the mile on the track to estimate your average mile pace. Try this multiple times to improve your accuracy.  Then, on runs off the track, just take the total run time and divide it by your average pace per mile.  You can also try to run on a trail that is marked with mile-markers.  GPS watches aren’t always accurate but are a decent measure as well.

Summer Running Tips:

*Try to vary the pace each day – and within each run.

*If running an out and back – try to make coming back slightly faster.

*Try to vary the distance you run each day.

*Take some days easy with low mileage and experiment with some longer runs (just make sure that the long run doesn’t exceed 25% of your weekly mileage).

*Run with teammates – text or email meeting times and try to run with 4-5 other people.  This will help to make things fun and help to keep you and your teammates accountable.

*Mix in swimming, biking or other activities in addition to running – not as a substitute for running.

*Establish a routine for running, stretching, and weight training/circuit drills. (you should be doing strength work at least every other day).
