Wohoooo! Nice and fast 30km Trail in the beautiful Taunus. 1000m of climbing. Pace: 4:19 min./km. I ran 30min. in the dark uphill to practice that. It‘s getting colder again up there! Tomorrow another #longrun in the forrest. Have a great day guys! 🙌
23,3km | 4‘50min/km
First official run above 20k for 2018 and I am happy!🤗 The knee felt solid, the legs were a bit sore and the motivation is trending📈
Really looking forward to the next weeks (especially since we have only rain🌧💦 announced for next days😒). Who else is annoyed when you know you won‘t see the sun for another week?🤦🏻♂️😂

10 snowy miles with a real feel of -7*F done!!🏃🏼♀️❄️👊🏼 Such a peaceful run. Fresh snow this morning and I opted to run without music to soak it all in - so worth it! Also these @kahtoola nanospikes are CLUTCH! This run wouldn’t have been as successful without them🤣
Today, I finished both seasons of Attack on Titan, which has now become one of my favorite shows/anime that I’ve ever watched. I’m excited for season 3 coming out this year! ⚔️🛡😀🔥😎✨
📸: @agentrosehq on our wonderful hike yesterday 🌿🌄😀⛰🏃🏻♀️(By the way, she is an awesome artist!)

Two of America’s finest road runners on the circuit today shattered PR’s to run themselves into the record books. Bernard Lagat, a double world champion, was on pace to beat Gebrselassie’s record time of 1:01:09 at the 10km split, but found himself slowing in the second half to a 1:02:00 finishing time. Despite missing the mark, he still bettered Meb Keflezighi’s U.S. masters record by 29 seconds.
Chelanga stayed with the lead pack for all but the last 2 miles of the race. He dipped under his former personal best by 27 seconds to place 6th overall in 60:37. The time puts him behind Dathan Ritzenhein’s 60-flat and ahead of Diego Estrada’s 60:51. Haron Lagat, who accompanied him for much of the race, clocked 61:01 in his debut to put himself 8th on the U.S. list.

Dig Deep Chronicles (DDC) 99: BEST PODCAST FOR A LONG RUN 🚀What a great training weekend! 90 min bike ride and 30 min run on Saturday. 100 min run on Sunday
🚀Saturday was a little chilly. No problem, @castellitriathlon (as always) to the rescue. It was a beautiful sunny day!
🚀Sunday's run started a little before 7am. I really wanted to see the sunrise. it was chilly again, but so worth it!
🚀Instead of listening to my usual playlist when doing long runs, I tried something different, I listened to a podcast where @richroll interviewed @timferriss.
🚀Why a podcast? I don't know, I wanted to try something different, something that would not be as loud as the music that I usually listen too, something peaceful. It totally worked. I'm going to keep implementing this in some of my workouts!

Yesterday a small battle was won. Any experienced distance runner knows not to worry about the highs and lows of this sport. I would have done anything not to get out that door into the miserable weather. Whenever I face these times I close my eyes and picture me on the starting line of the Berlin marathon. Then ask myself if I did everything possible to reach my potential? Success isn't achieved in your comfort zone. The run is a memory, the fitness gained is all that's left.
So proud of this run because I’ve been questioning if I’d ever get a faster pace and WHY my pace was not improving. The answer: I wasn’t pushing myself hard enough! Ran today with the goal of being under 11” and ended up with a 10’27” pace. 😭 In general, it is not a fast pace, but for me it’s a huge deal! Ignored everything and just focused on my goal so I’m happy with this #longrun 😛❤️

This is such an accurate picture of how I am feeling after my dreadmill workout. I got inspired by @runningwithmoxie when I saw her workout she did yesterday. After been focusing on lifting and not endurance a run that would have been a breeze became so hard! Ambers workout was
10 min @ 7:41
9 min @ 7:30
8 min @ 7:18
7 min @ 7:08
6 min @ 6:53
5 min @ 6:39
4 min @ 6:27
3 min @ 6:18
2 min @ 6:07
1 min @ 5:49
With 1 min in between each
Even though this was a hard workout to begin with I like a challenge so I decided to see how far I could go without taking the 1 min break. unfortunately I only went min 10-5. Looks like I have some work to do!
What i did ended up being 6.18 at 7:16 pace
I love seeing everyone’s workouts tag me in your workouts to challenge me! 🏃🏼♀️ (great workout amber!)
Bringing back the double digit runs! Speed work is hard and I love it and despise it in the same breath. Longer runs are more comfortable. And here we are, running at a pretty nice pace with hills and chatting the whole time. Besides the beginning of mile 9 when I tasted a bit of metal (?) in my mouth (what is that?? Dehydration? Hunger? First signs of reaching red line status?), it was smooth sailing. And the post run picture resulted in laughing until my face hurt. Solid Tuesday. #runlessrunfaster#hokaoneone#tailwindnutrition#gottailwind#momswhorun#motherrunner#longrun#hillyhills
MOLLY HUDDLE ADDS THE HALF MARATHON TO HER LIST OF U.S. RECORDS
The 33-year-old from Providence, R.I. took down Deena Kastor’s previous American record mark of 67:34, which she had set in Berlin almost 12 years ago, with 67:25 at the Houston Half Marathon on Sunday. She also passed 10 miles (50:52) and 20-K (63:48) in unofficial records, bettering the old marks of 51:30 and 64:07 by Kastor, again in Berlin. This makes Huddle the national record holder at 10,000m on the track and 5K, 20K, 10M, and HM on the roads.
For the first 10 miles of race, Huddle hung off the back of the leaders running at 66:40 pace, a pace which would put her ahead of Kara Goucher’s 66:57 American “Best” from the 2007 Great North Run. But it was after that when she began struggling to hold pace and slowed over the final 5km. Later after the race, Huddle said in an interview “We were going really well through 10 miles, but then I kind of blew up when they dropped me” mentioning that she knew eventually her legs would fall out from under her.
The 25 national titles and 28-race-long win-streak over other Americans on the roads make her undoubtably the most dominant American distance runner today.
“It means a lot that it was Deena’s record, to just be in the company of Deena who has the American record [in the marathon], gives me a lot of confidence.”
How will Huddle fair in April’s Boston Marathon come race day, do you guys think? Will she be top American against the likes of Jordan Hasay and Shalane Flanagan?
