Ran it as part of my 5 miles this morning...35 minutes flat for my slow butt! Can't wait to get my nose fixed so I can actually BREATHE!

It's Saturday morning here in Australia. Got it done early, so glad I did.
I posted on my blog.

Hey, it's Saturday somewhere, right? I set a NEW PR for 3.3 miles on my run today! You say 3.3 miles isn't a standard distance? Feh! I ran it in 30:21. That's kind of like a 28:15 5K, right?

And thanks to our wimpy Minnesota winter weather, I did NOT freeze anything off. It was a balmy 21 degrees, with light winds and mostly-clear pavement on the trail along the Mississippi river.

It's northern Minnesota here and we had some snow and ice this past week but the temp was 15* this morning so off I went on the Cuyuna trail.

Thank you for hosting this Adam, it was really something I'm not sure I would of done if I hadn't found this. Outside I mean, I do my 5K's on the treadmill in the winter.

Take care and God Bless!!

winston2 said...

did my part this morning. I ran 8 km as part of my trainng for a half in April. 1:04...not too fast but thats what you get being me. Thanks for the fun idea. The running gods were nce to me as the freezing rain stopped halfway through my run and the cliff's Shot Blocks I dropped at 30 min I found again at 45 min...yahoo

Alisha said...

Ha, I'll show those guys slow! 3.18 miles in 45 minutes! lol. Give me some credit though it's almost 11 o'clock at night and I worked earlier today. My plans changed for tomorrow so I had to get it done tonight! Thanks for hosting and pushing me to work out tonight!

Michelle said...

I did it and with my new Garmin 405 I got in the mail today and then my husband came home with a new pair of socks from the running store for me :) . 5K in 33:30. I thought I ran harder than that, but I have mostly been on the treadmill this winter and it was a nice 39 degrees in Michigan today.

Caloy Bautista said...

Did a 22:58 5k in my hilly part of Mindanao island in Southern Philippines. That's just 33 seconds off my personal best of 22:25 which I did in an actual 5k race in 2008. If 5k's are a test of race readiness, I'd say that's where I am right now. Can't be happier. I'm racing a 17k next Sunday.

Ran a personal best...so did my wife. Couldn't have been a better start to the 2012 season. Thanks for hosting Adam!

Char said...

I walked a 5k with my dog this morning (not allowed to run at the moment - sad face). It took 1 hr and 5 minutes. Nothing froze but we stopped to pee at nearly every tree.

Mamma mia, I get tired just hearing of all this running. I guess it's age. Good for you! All the best from Rome from your new follower! they are predicting snow here in Italy in the next few days, let's see if it's true.

Running Ryan said...

Ran 5 miles this morning!! My 5K time was 19:24. I even had the wife yell Ready, Set, Go!!!!! (She thought i was retarded) After I ran the 5K I ran a easy 2 miles with the wife. Rainy and a nice 35 degrees out. a little wind but not bad.

Losing Lindy said...

5k done in 35:48 on the dreadmill. Not fast but I still have a cold in my chest.

bakerunlive.com said...

It's snowing here in Northeast Ohio, so I ran my 5k on the treadmill. I'm in awe of the runners who brave this yucky weather to run outside.
My time: 28:35

Randy said...

It was a cold winter's morning in South Carolina...a chilly 35 degrees. Despite the conditions I braved the elements of no wind, no precipitation and clear skies to fight my way to the starting line of the Freeze Your Thorns Off 5K. Nothing, not even near perfect conditions would stop me from participating in the race.

As I eyed the competition, I knew that I was in for a challenge all day. As our group started out, they all chatted about marathons and life. There was laughter and jovial stories told, but I was not there for stories...I was there to WIN. Sure they didn't know the race was going on. Of course they don't know what Twitter is. None of that mattered. I was here to destroy all of them.

I kept it close through all of the miles, even letting them open up somewhat of a lead on me at times so I could converse with people, but make no mistake, my eyes were on the prize. As we neared the finish line of the local Fleet Feet, the full glory of my experience would not be complete until I was crowned the WINNER of the FYTO5K, Greenville South Carolina edition.

With the finish line in sight I effortlessly blew past the rest of the field as they looked at me like I was an alien....an alien with a big fat trophy.

I was triumphant, and so happy with my feat, I bought a round of coffee for the entire group. That's just the kind of guy I am.

7.32 miles in 1:08:30.

I believe this will be a new record for FYTO5K in Greenville SC at this distance.

I'm not letting the victory or the new record go to my head though. I still remember all the little people that made it possible.

Oh, and one more thing....Fleet Feet, I apologize for what I did to your restroom.

Thanks for putting on the race Adam! Can't wait for the SYTO5K later this year!

Ian M. said...

Just got back from my FYTO5K. I ran it as part of a 12K run. The weather today is much better than yeasterday. A bit windy. Temp when I started out was 0C but with the wind it felt like -9C. I did a trail/road run. Had to run 2K to get to the trail.

I really had no game plan, just figured I'd wing it. Started out conservatively (there's a rather long gradual hill that starts at the 250m mark of my run). I was feeling good and decide to up the pace and use the first 5K as my FYTO5K time. First 5K done in 26:48. Not too bad.

Took the pace down for a bit, until the turnaround at 6K. Was still feeling good and though I didn't realize it at the time, was keeping pretty consistent km splits of about 5:10. Pushed the pace again at 9K and finished the second 5K in 26:17.

So, at the 10K mark is the bottom of the other side of the hill that I mentioned previously, and it's pretty much an uphill for a km. Good thigs is that from 11K it's downhill all the way home. Well, it ends up that km 11 was run faster than km 6 and with the downhill during km 12, I finished 12K in 1:03:46.

My FYTO5K time is my last 5K which I ran in 25:37. I haven't run that fast or that long in a while.

I thought I was gonna puke there at one point.

This was fun. Can't wait to SMTO

tahoegirl said...

Ran this as part of a 5 miler. Time = 31.41. Attitude = swirling the toilet bowl. Weather = snowy, windy with ice pellets stinging my eyes. At least I was out there. Thanks, Adam, for hosting another great virtual run.

Tami said...

I did it. It was hard today, and it was about 38 degrees and still quite icy out there, but I did it. I feel like a winner for just getting it done today!

Anonymous said...

Hi Adam

Did it as part of a 25 K run.
First tour of the 'Watersportbaan'in Ghent, Belgium in 30.25.
Nice blog you've got !

Kind regards,
Luc T, Ghent, Belgium

Sam said...

Thanks Adam! I ran this morning in 0*C weather. Snow, rain, wind & ice. It sucked pretty hard. Got it done in 28:26. Ok time considering I had to dodge a lot of ice patches. http://breakingmyrunnersin.blogspot.com/2012/01/week-2-of-training-and-not-one-but-two.html

Tammy B said...

Hi! My time for the virtual 5K was 41.56. That is pretty bad but still a PB (and jelly). My 5K time almost matches your Marathon time! Thanks for hosting, this was great motivation for me!

I actually only ran 2.9 miles in 28:15 as I am coming back from a hip injury. It was my longest run since the marathon in November and pain-free at that! Physical therapy is getting me closer every day! :)

LoreleiG said...

Ran my Freeze Your Thorns Off 5K in 26:40. A beautiful, snowy afternoon in Michigan!

Tim W said...

Froze my Thorns and my Franny @ Stoney Creek 31 degrees and snow. Not a fan of big group starts, was stuck in middle back of 700+ racers, took a good 10 seconds to get to start line. Endomondo tracker got me 24:40, PR for me. and 20 seconds under goal time.

Hooray for completing my first 5K race of the year in 32:22! And, fortunately for me (and hubby who ran it with me)......try not to hate us too much.....it was a BEAUTIFUL and sunny 59 degrees here!

Ran 3.1 in 31:00 - running after a lunch that included tartar sauce was NOT a good idea. It was the gift that kept on giving!

Thanks for hosting such a cool (pun intended) event.

It was a balmy 49 degrees in Reno, NV. Ran it in 34:56 after working a 12 hour grave. Thanks for the inspiration to get out and run.

Finished my 5K in 24:24. Had fun, thanks for letting me be a virtual part of your second annual event. My recap is posted: http://mike2marathon.blogspot.com/2012/01/second-annual-freeze-your-thorns-off-5k.html

Here is my recap: http://andsoitburns.blogspot.com/2012/01/freeze-your-thorns-off-5k.html

21:59 -had a good race today!!!

Pam said...

Okay, I did intervals today and used 3.1 of it as your FYTO5K. Although I did not freeze anything off! It was sunny and 45ish today! One mile warmup, 27:59 5K, then three easy miles. Not a PR, but it was only 8 seconds off my current PR, so I was pretty happy considering I didn't truly RACE it. :)

Geodess said...

Ran this in a balmy -24 Fahrenheit! Didn't want to really move but we finished in 35:41 with just a wee hint of frost bite and frozen eyelashes !!

TriMOEngr said...

3.34 miles in 45:30 for me. Here is a link to my RR:

http://climbingthosehills.blogspot.com/2012/01/freeze-your-thorns-off-5k-race-report.html

Not as freezing as some January days, but still tough.

Westplex Runner said...

Ran it twice (24:32 and 24:465) with a mile warm up and cool down. Actually saw two other runners which is rare in my neck of the woods.

Although temps were nice (39 degrees), a steady 35 mph wind blew off the thorns.

DONE!! DID IT!!!

Interesting course you chose for me Adam. But I can't argue with the race director.

Here's the report.

Miranda said...

Here's my recap of skiing, bloody mary and beer drinking, running, and more beer drinking for the FYTO5k today! 3.22 miles in 33:06 (not bad for drinking before running, I say)

Brad said...

Can't say this was the fastest 5k for me, but it was also part of a 12 miler so it wasn't going to be blazing fast. 28:39 for the 5k portion. It was an awesome run with snow on the ground (finally) and a little bit still coming down. No thorns were frozen off as it was 20 degrees out.

Sarah said...

Had an awesome 5 mile run.

My 5k portion wasn't stellar: about 41 min. But still a great day to run.

Thanks for hosting, Adam!

Ran a five mile race (37:30), but glanced at my watch somewhat after the 3rd orange mile marker cone and I was at 22:47 - of course there was this runner guy wearing a orange cone colored vest who was ahead of me who kept throwing me off, I thought I'd never make it to the next cone. Thanks for sponsoring this race - pick me for the arm warmer things.

Connie said...

Hey Adam, great run today. Completed the 5K in 26:43!

zonagoph said...

Greetings Adam... I am a friend of Jeff Geyer, and, since I didn't let you know I was going to participate, I decided to bandit the race on the treadmill at LA Fitness. The hills were manageable, unfortunately the BO smell of the guy next to me was not- and that hampered my breathing and focus. This is my first race in over two years, and, for only running 7 times since December, I was happy with the effort
I did a run/yog, running for 3:30, then yogging for 1:10. I kept the running pace between 9:15/mile and got down to 8:00/mile on the last 1/2 mile... I think out-sprinted Jeff and passed him 4m before the finish line... what a sucker!
My time was nearly double my times from high school and college, but my age is double, so it evens out. Thanks for hosting such a great event!

Ran Freeze Your Thorns off 5k in 29.00 minutes. Did it inside on the treadmill.

pensive pumpkin said...

I just want to thank you for this. I PR'd the 5k today with 35:03. Yeah, I'm slow. But not as slow as I was last week.

For a full writeup:

http://pensivepumpkin.blogspot.com/2012/01/w4-fyto5k-or-what-if-i-say-im-not-like.html

Thanks again, Adam. I'm considering racing a 5k every freaking weekend now, all because you hosted this. You are a rock star. (I'm not bad either- PR baby, yeah!)

Jess K said...

Had a blast (literally) running 3.1 and then some this morning in the gusts of 40+mph wind.

Finished my 5K in 34:29 as part of a 6-mile run. It was a sunny 33 degrees in Salt Lake, so my husband and I didn't freeze anything off. We did have a great view of snow covered peaks on our running trail. I'll try to post a pic to my blog this evening! Thanks for a great race!

Great run today! 3.1 in 24:16. My neighborhood is super hilly so I thought it was a decent time! My Google signature here is "Jessica Clem and Jason McClaren," but I entered into the race as Jessica Clem. Just so you don't count my husband in the results list! :)

I ran it today as a recovery run from my marathon last weekend. Still trashed legs but squeaked out a 25:59.

Ran my FYTO5K after work tonight- it wasn't very freezing but hey, I'll take it. :) 66 is fine.
25:33! An unofficial PR.

Christine S. said...

Got my 5K today despite the fact that I had a wisdom tooth pulled on Monday and was out of commission for most of the week!

The weather was BEAUTIFUL! 40*, Sunny, barely any wind and all the snow and ice had melted away!! Got out--a solid 1st mile, and then I went to take a picture, ended up pausing and ENDING my run on Nike+. Had to start a new one...lost my groove.

Ended up posting a 5K time of 35:53. Definitely not a PR--but, I got out there and did it! And my healing mouth doesn't seem to be effected by it! So that is EVEN better! :)

I ran it, and I posted about it! whitehouseofchaos.blogspot.com
I ran on road and paved trail in ridiculous 72 degree weather and did it in 32:21, which wasn't bad for me. And I'm feeling much better about it seeing all the other times posted here. Thanks for the self-esteem boost!

The 5k is completed! Didn't really finish sooner than the 1st one of the year but I did do a little running this time so success:-) Posted about it here Another 2fer

April said...

Ran 12 miles of a planned 16 mile training run. Which 5k section should I report on? The first flat-out run for a bathroom, or the second? Or the turn-around back to my house to shed some layers because of this unseasonably warm VA winter? Well, besides those issues, my friend and I had a decent run, except decided that after 12 miles and 4 stops, we just weren't in the mood for the full 16. How convenient that next weekend's planned run is 12 miles, so we just swapped 'em. Better luck next time.

Christina said...

Here's my race report. Thanks for putting on an awesome race.

I was contemplating doing the 5K in the shower, but I get so prune-like after 10 minutes, I was scared I would come out a raisin!

Recap here: http://chix20chix.blogspot.com/2012/01/fyto-5k-recap.html

Thanks for a fun race! Maybe I can do it LIVE next year!

Precious said...

Most fun 5k ever (and longest)! It was great with the bibs and we got lots of comments when running! :) 3.1 in 40:54.

Nobel4Lit said...

My knee wasn't happy, but I did mine in 28:12. Thanks for the fun incentive!

Dina @ DinaRuns said...

Love to see so many people participating!

Here is my race report: http://alturl.com/edhkk

I ran mine as part of my long run. Hate to brag but it was in the 80's and I was wearing shorts and short sleeves.

Kate said...

I considered a race report consisting of: "See Mike's blog", but I sucked it up and wrote my own. Thanks for hosting!

Dr.J said...

Did it on Sunday after my Saturday night vodka cranberry wore off. Treadmill run for 42 minutes= 4 miles, but several walking breaks included. See vodka cranberry reference above.

Amanda said...

Did my 5K today as part of a longer training run. I'm one of the slower ones around - finished 5K in about 50 minutes. Florida sun was super hot today so no freezing any thorns off for me! But still had a good run.

Andrew said...

Well ran my 5k on the dreadmill with a 23:42! Yeah, I didn't really want to run it on the treadmill, but I wussed out with the 17 degrees morning this morning, but ran another 7.6 in the afternoon (and almost 60!). The bad news is that almost beat my 5k time from this morning during that run! So, did I podium in my AG?!? LOL

Andie Marie said...

I ran my 5k in a very very slow 45:27. Coming back from injury sucks. :/

Crystal said...

I forgot to report in!

I ran the 5k {alone} in 38:10 in beautiful Cape Cod.

Beth (i run like a girl) said...

25.5 minutes on the treadmill doing intervals (6 x 400s with a 1 mile warmup and 0.6 mile cool down). I wanted to hurl on the last 400!

Detroit Runner(Jeff) said...

Ran your race today as part of my 11 mile long run. Dan for 1 hour and 40 minutes. Had a great day to run and given I'm in Michigan, I frozen my thorns off! Really though, ran roads, trails and enjoyed ever minute of it. Thanks for putting on the race and getting me out there.

Suza said...

I meant to run tonight after work, but there was a blizzard while I was indoors, and there's no ice everywhere. I don't feel comfortable running on the now-iced sidewalks, so I've scheduled gym time for tomorrow morning.

If you're still accepting times tomorrow, I'll be back with a time for you asap!

Sheina T. said...

Ran the 5k in 32:47.

Kyle said...

Ran 14 miles yesterday. It was great. My knee bugged me a little bit, but otherwise fantastic. Lots of big hills (862 ft elevation change).

Rachel said...

did your 5k race with my mom! it went very slow but at least we finished, eh? time was 42:22.

Joline said...

ran your 5k virtual race with my daughter. she dragged me the whole way!! My time was 47:00. Not great but it will get better with time! :)

mikemilzz said...

This was fun! (I just wish I had my crap together on Friday before I left work so I could have printed off the race bib.) Thanks for putting it together. 23:42. Race report: http://crosscountrysquared.blogspot.com/

I didn't freeze anything off but I ran anyway.

Team Serrins Springfield said...

I ran it as part of my 12x800 repeats. If I estimate the fastest 5 repeats and the walking between them, I get 36:08. I'm pretty sure I could do 5K faster if that was what I was running without the other 6 miles of repeats. BTW: I did not freeze my thorns (whatever they are) off. It was 45-48 which is on the cool side for Texas but I wore shorts and a long-sleeve shirt and didn't freeze.

sAm said...

Ran this one with my son for the second year in a row. I haven't been running for a couple of months due to a surgery, so this was my first run to get back into it. Is it wrong that I had the OK to run 2 weeks ago, yet delaying starting up again just so this could be my inaugural run? Ah, well - that's my story & I'm sticking with it! Don't worry about my time. I had a great time...lots of fun...isn't that what really matters, anyways? At the beginning of the run it was beautiful. At the end of the run, it was even more beautiful with about 1.5" of fresh snow on the trail. First "real" snow of the year!! Thanks for hosting this virtual run & getting me out there - I wouldn't have missed my 2nd FYTO for anything!!

Needlerunning said...

Got mine done on Saturday in 40 minutes. Wondering if I was able to finish DFL...lol

ltlindian said...

Ran yesterday outside as part of my 6 miler. 56:56 I'm bad at math, so you can figure it out. Here's my blog link:

My computer/internet has been freaking out. SO, I didn't post about it, but I ran your 5k in 36:54.

Suza said...

I did my 5k as part of a longer run, 7.8 miles to be exact...My time was 26:25 and did not see any frozen cacti during the run!!!

Here's my recap! :)

Melissa said...

Did my run on Sunday - 3.1 as part of a 5.2 run in training for my half marathon in April in Knoxville, TN.

It's all about the post race beer - right?

Kim said...

I'm a little late on posting this--but I didn't end up running a 5k on Saturday or Sunday--so I'm hoping me skiing at least 26 miles still counts! I'm still a newbie at skiing--and ended up doing 11 runs down Copper Mountain, CO over the weekend. I measured two runs and they were 2.6 and 2.4 miles long each! So I'm assuming I skied at least 26 miles! I am SORE! My quads were burning by the time the lifts closed yesterday.

Liz said...

Did it as part of an accidental four miler (should have turned right not left...) but I finished in 43:37 Not too bad for me.

Adrian {Happy Girl} said...

Ran 5.37 in 52mins Sunday morning. I hated the whole run, but not because of the race, but because I was super sore from a strength workout on Fri. It felt like cacti were stabbing my legs, which is appropriate for the title of the race ;) Thanks for hosting, can't wait for SYTO in the summer!

Katy said...

Better late than never! 3.1 miles Saturday at 1:00 pm with a friend in 29:31. And not even freezing, only 46 degrees out!

Anonymous said...

I ran a 27:34 5k Saturday as part of my 4 mile easy run. My son took a picture when I got back. (spoiler alert -- Adam may post?) By the time I had signed up, all of the positive integer bib numbers were taken, so I chose 3.14. This was kinda symbolic since not only does it stand for pi but is also pretty to close the mile distance of a 5k. The medals were pretty chintzy too. Thanks for the prompt email reply Adam!

3.1 miles on Sunday on the elliptical...yee haw!

Shannon said...

4.3 Miles on Saturday outside- it was beautiful, but I missed my turn around point! Still counts, right?

Lisa said...

Okay, I know I'm really late getting around to commenting. Please don't hate me. I did 3.1 miles in 27:45. A brief write-up is in the first part of this post: http://updowntouchtheground.blogspot.com/2012/02/tinker-bell-weekend-part-3-fyto5k-and.html
