Let's do it. I'm clearly the McGregor in this scenario...slow, unqualified, (mostly) Irish.

Been a rough week. Dealing with a summer cold and shitty week at work.

Good news is, I lost 5 pounds due to illness, so I really only need to lose 5 more to get to my racing weight.

Now that I think about it, my week has been decidedly less shitty than Reid's.

Hope you are well, friend.

The Adidas store near me is closing. Got a pair of Adios Boost 3s for $55.

I'm good, man. Thanks for the well wishes. Lots of people I know, family included, didn't stay dry in their homes.

If anyone feels like running a quick charity 5k, one of the larger running clubs in the area has set up a virtual race.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/3103178 ... 035577819/

Greater Houston Community Foundation is my preferred charity. Mayor Turner set it up as a way to get more immediate help funneled to people. https://ghcf.org/

So I actually used Strava finally. I need to know who is whom so I know who I'm following. I guess I'm not on a first name basis with anyone here. I will do my best to use it more often, but now it's 3 things (watch, runkeeper, and strava), so the start and the finish of every run gives me anxiety.

I managed another 20 last Sunday. Kept a 7:51 pace on it, which was over 30 seconds faster than the previous Sunday. Finished the week at just under 42 miles.

Did a 12 today. Can anyone see it? It looks like it's in my profile, but it's not showing up in activities? Anyway, it's 6 miles mainly downhill followed by 6 uphill back. It's a steep bitch. Wanted to average 8 minutes and I think was around 7:51.

So this marathon is 2 weeks away. If my legs hold up and the weather isn't awful, I think coming in under 3:30 is doable, but I'm tempted to run with a 3:15 pacer for as long as I can just to see how far off I am from being where I wanted to be. I'm just afraid I'll bonk halfway through and run 10 to 12 minute miles the rest of the way.

Daft, I'd recommend using the export and upload features to keep from tracking anxiety in your runs. I just hit start on my gps watch and upload later. It's made a world of difference on my focus.

Reid on Strava. Haven't been logging much lately.

He has an old Garmin forerunner like me, he's stuck with manual entries.

If you use RunKeeper, use that to track. Export from there and upload to Strava. I've been able to do that with runs dating as far back as 2012.

Brutal today. Humid and 90+ degrees. Dropped 9 pounds on a 7-mile run.

Could you give me the steps to do that? I'd love to upload everything to strava.

When you look at your activity feed on runkeeper (desktop version) you'll see an export option on the very bottom right, below the stats for that run. GPX or Google Earth.

Click GPX.

Once it's downloaded to a folder in your desktop, go to your Strava account. Next to your profile icon on the top right of the Strava window (desktop) there will be a plus sign. Click that.

Hover that and select the first option, "upload activity."

On the left hand side of that window there should be four options to select. The second option is "file." Click than and then select "choose file" to find the GPX file you downloaded from RunKeeper to your desktop.

Thanks, man. I didn't even realize there were desktop versions of these apps. I downloaded all of the info from runkeeper, but with a 25 activity limit, it's an arduous task. I think I got all of this year uploaded. Looking at runkeeper, I'll be passing 3,500 miles this week since my first tracked activity in June 2013. That doesn't account for the many treadmill miles I've run either. Considering how many gaps of months of not running I've got in that time, that's a holy shit number for me. NYC to LA is 2,800 miles. I feel like a bad ass right now, and I just ate half a brick of pepper jack cheese.

Went for a short run the other day in my aunt and uncle's neighborhood down in Madison. They live halfway up a huge hill, so the whole run I was either going straight up or straight down. My feet hate me today.
