Doesn’t sound appealing?

Ya you know, I thought about it but I decided I would leave that for another day :)

Matthias Kyburz just ran a 50k on a treadmill in 2 hours 56 minutes and 35 (6?) seconds. I'm doing that next week :P

The long run was, and is, the most important workout for improving O, especially for US orienteers. It was the run I added to Sam's training as soon as she started training for JWOC in 1999. First goal was 1.5 hours, then 2 hours. More than 2 I think gets to the point of diminishing returns for typical O distance races.

Ya I have been working to build up my long run times, and I find that I really enjoy them too. Not sure I could do almost three hours on a treadmill though...

Are you doing them on a treadmill!?? That's too tough for me to even think about.

No most of them have been outside, although many are now going to be inside because Arlington has said that we have to run with a mask which sounds worse than running on a treadmill...

I have yet to run in Cambridge since the mask declaration and since people are getting really intense in my neighborhood.

I have never wanted a treadmill but I can imagine I might actually use one if I had one now.

Wow that's kinda scary. Don't think anyone in Arlington is at that level yet, but there was a woman who yelled at me a week or so ago for running without a mask. Not sure she said anything to anyone else, don't know why I was the one she questioned but...

People are mad at runners and it sucks - for a lot of us a run is the equivalent of a head-clearing walk for others.

I got yelled at a couple of weeks ago for passing too close to someone on the start of Longfellow bridge. There wasn't a lot of room and I got boxed in, so I darted out of the box. In retrospect I could have stopped in my tracks and waited, but the fact that people are so anxious about brief closer-than-2m contact means that it's best to just avoid any places where I might be squeezed.

Wow. Glad we don't have that restriction (yet?). Running with a mask is something I do very reluctantly when it's extremely cold, and it's not fun.
Couldn't read the article w/o signing up but I got the gist. People are very stressed and lashing out. Sad.

I find a buff not too bad and that is considered a face covering here. Although thankfully also not Enforced (yet).
Crazy that someone would pull a knife on a runner! What’s next shots fired? Stay safe my friends!!
