Fuck I’m old....enlisted in 2000. I was actually graduating AIT on 9/11 (split opt).

Ouch. What were your thoughts on it?

On being old? Honestly, the 30’s have been pretty damn awesome.

Unless you agree in advance to run your own paces, I think an invitation to run together implies that you're going to run together. I would also think it implies a conversational pace, unless you agree to something else in advance, such as running a hard run together because one of you knows a good route and the other one doesn't.

Ok that’s what I thought, but I was wrong. It was a lonely 8 miles ಥ_ಥ

That sucks! This random stranger on the Internet says you should confront the person who invited you and ask, WTF! I hope the 8 miles were satisfying, even so.

rbevans 1 point

Haha Yeah WTF! It was a good training run.

If you would've told me in 2008 that there would be this many Marvel movies and would surpass the X-Men & Spiderman movies I probably would have been really skeptical.

Thank you for posting this.

It is incredibly discouraging. I live in South Florida and even waking up extra early to run in the mornings, the humidity is still so high that i just cannot maintain a decent pace. I trained for a half marathon earlier this year, and now i am beginning training for my second and i am having such a tougher time upping up my mileage with this weather.

Was just down in South Florida a few weeks ago to visit family. Just brutal running weather even at 6am.

Live in Charlotte. This looks nearly exactly like my pace coaster.

Hi! Pace coaster, I like it.

I have conversations with new runners that are discouraged that their pace is slow in the summer and I try to explain that this is expected to happen. I thought this was be interesting to see the visualization break down.

This over roughly 2000 miles of running and sourced my data from my Garmin data.

I did not run the same mileage each month, but I was in and in marathon training during this period. Running no less than 30 miles a week (that might be low) and right now I’m running 50+ miles a week. I was also running no less than 4 days a week and running 6 currently.

  • Weather was sourced from here for Charlotte, NC.
  • For my tool I used excel.

You may or may not have noticed this, but Garmin is logging weather conditions for you now. If you look at the browser based data where you can see the course on the map, it's in the upper right corner of the map. Of course, I'm in FL, so it might as well just say "Damn hot" all the time.

Good data!

Thank you! I’ll look for that for sure. Maybe it’ll give me the average humidity because I wanted to add that as well, but couldn’t find a good data set.

Yeah, I don't know what to do now if I'm ever attacked by a bear. Try to be spicy, I guess.

Bears the ultimate killing machine, they can run, climb, & swim.

Would you recommend cutting out juices, even if they’re used as a recovery drink after a run? I’ve started to drink small portions of orange juice after I run and I find it helps me recover much quicker

rbevans 1 point

I don’t think anyone is gonna say cut that out. I’ve known people to drink just juice and no water.

I have the occasion drinks but that's not even weekly. Rarely drink soda or juice. I do drink Bai though. One a day.

A large salad and fruit every day for lunch which is about 500 cals. Oatmeal and almond milk in the morning for about 250 cals. Dinner varies. A lot of chicken. Evenings after dinner is when I slip. I'm always starving.

I go into summer not expecting any PR’s. With the heat and humidity your body will need to work harder and as those levels increase so does your bodies work load. I think of it as heat training. Similar to when your pace suffers during big elevations but all that work pays off in the flat areas.
