Title: Did you run today?
Post by: ijen on January 12, 2011, 04:56:26 PM
I'm planning on it!

With a 13.1 coming up in March, I'm on an interval training plan running about 12-15 miles a week currently.

Anyone else?

Does the treadmill count?


~32 minutes on the treadmill, and I did 2 miles in 28:20..so 14:10/mile.  Apparently I hit start on my garmin a few minutes before I actually got on.


http://connect.garmin.com/activity/63306064 (http://connect.garmin.com/activity/63306064) pretty much just for heart rate until I can get outside.

~30 minutes on the treadmill.  2 miles in ~14:20/mile.  Starting to be able to run for longer periods. Not much longer, but I am seeing some improvement

Meh. I went out of town this weekend and forgot my running shoes, so I powerwalked on the treadmill for 45 minutes using HR levels.

I don't understand this workout. Was it a bunch of sprints with walking in between? You did a good job on the HR.

5 minute walk warmup, then intervals of 5 minutes steady running, 1:15 walking, rinse and repeat.


I did some breathing focusing while I ran which was really nice.

Another 1/2 hour on the treadmill.  I accomplished one of my goals of running 1 mile uninterrupted, well the first mile anyways.  I walked for about 2 minutes then did the rest of the mile in one go.


Also had a better pace at 13:56/mile.

Today's run. I had planned 1hr15min of intervals, but kept getting a nasty side cramp. I've got to figure out what caused it so it doesn't happen again...

Also, Garmin distance is incorrect. It took a good while to locate a satellite, and subtracted .25 miles off my actual distance  :facepalm:

14:45/mile for 2 miles. 


I don't know if its because of the cold in the garage or because I am on the treadmill, but towards the end of the 30 minutes, it gets harder to run for more than 2 or 3 minutes at a time because my heart rate is getting so high.  Im gonna have to go with it being on the treadmill.


Spring needs to hurry up.

Im pretty sure I tried that, but I will have to remember to try that next time.

When my HR gets too high, I just tell myself to take it down a notch... take some longer breaths, and just try to feel relaxed. It really does help (even though it sounds cheezy).

Hey ijen, after my ride today I tried out my new "dorky" Brooks, only for about 1.5 miles. They seem to be okay, there wasn't a huge amount of pain. I hate this taking it easy giving myself time to heal crap.

I tried to control my breathing more, but it didn't really seem to help.  I just decreased the amount of time running in each interval and that seemed to help out some.   


14:45/mile for the 2 miles.


I think I am going to start increasing my time soon.

I was on the treadmill.

Apparently 1% incline more accurately represents outdoor running, and setting 1-3% incline will train you better for outdoor running. (Physical Therapy always has me doing 3% incline)

According to the above article you can swim with it.
 
Specs (https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?cID=142&pID=27483 (https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?cID=142&pID=27483)) advise that it's water resistant up to 50 meters. I remember something about that not considered as water proof here, but maybe it's just a difference on words and the way people use them, maybe it really is waterproof. I would say you could just send an email to customer service and ask, but I sent one to customer service a couple weeks ago and still haven't recieved a response.

Then I went and got fitted for new running shoes, since the gym/running shoes I've been wearing were almost 6 years old. After trying on five different pairs, doing lots of one legged knee bends, and running back and forth in the shop's rehab center, I settled on these for my ultra flat arch, pronating feet:

It was between these, and a pair of Brooks that were nice, but had just a little too much arch in them.

When I put my old shoes back on, they felt about as supportive as a pair of Chucks.

The Garmin/HRM discussion is a week old... but.

The Forerunner is water resistant, and you can wear it in the water, but none of the Garmins can transmit heart rate under water. IIRC, Polar is the only company that makes an HRM that works when swimming (mine does - it's a Polar F4).

For tris, Mr. TS wears a Forerunner 110, and has the 500 on his bike. The watch records distance for the swim (although it's not super accurate) and then distance and HR for the run, and the 500 is easier to read on the bike.

For a super basic HRM, I liked the Polar, and the strap works with machines at the gym.

If I really do start running, I'm not sure what I'm going to do. Most likely just put my 500 in a pocket or something.

Yes I have kicked it.


It needs more than a tune up, the thing is old.  The speed adjustment is a dial and it only goes to ~5 mph, and it only works when it wants to.

Did that with my girlfriend today. It's kinda hard to get a good workout since we both aren't on the same level but on the other hand, this way I won't injure myself from starting to hard on myself. So we did a pyramid run
4min brisk walk then 1min run 1 min walk, 2min run 2min walking did that up to 4 min and back to 3-2-1

At first I was going to go for a walk, then I thought that I would try something that resembles running.  My plan was to go until any signs of pain/discomfort started to appear in my back.  I found a 5k podcast and went with it.  Everything went well.  I think part of it was the fact that it was run walk intervals..we will see...

I've spent the last few years running on the sidewalks and thinking the only good trails I could get to where for 10+ mile runs.  I'm finding all sorts of trails hidden right in the city that I can hit great 3-10 mile loops on and be 75% on dirt.  Ran 8 last night, only about 2 of which was on any pavement.

I started to do speedwork on my swimming, but because this week was a rest week I slacked on the swimming and got a couple extra long bike rides in. I'll start back up on it Sunday, I have tour de cure tomorrow. (I was gonna swim yesterday, but I went on another bike ride instead :( )

Finally took my Garmin on this trail route I've been running.  Only 6.6 miles.  Thought it was over a mile longer, considering how long it takes me to do it.  I did 10 minute warmup, 15 tempo, 10 slow jog, 15 tempo, 10 cool down.  The last 10 minutes of cooldown was on pavement and was actually faster than any of my tempo splits, which is odd to see considering how hard I was working.

Lots of up and down on this route...about 100 ft/mile, which on a bike would be considered pretty darn hilly.

I also think it's pretty cool that probably 4.5-5 miles out of the 6.6 is on legit dirt trails, considering how close I live to downtown.

Time to move on to week 4.  The next week is a 5 minute walk to warmup as usual, followed by 4 mins run/jog with 1 min walk to recover x5, with a 5 minute warm down walk.  Should be interesting to see how I do with an extra minute of running per interval.  The first 3 weeks increased by 30 seconds each.  We will see.

Well after almost 2 years off and slowly rebuilding my base I finally hit a 5 mile run again.  Weather has been great around here for some reason so I took advantage. Had to work a standby at a race yesterday and really wanted to be in it. It feels so good to be running again.

5K run/walk  finished in 34:28.  No knee pain!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:


My calves however.  Ouch!  I drove to the MUP to run. When I got out of my truck after driving home, my R calf cramped up.  Better after a quick stretch. 


This is the first time I have jogged in 15 yrs without knee pain (except when I've been at the beach)

Good job on the running.  BTW, treadmills suck, I won't run on them anymore. The last couple times I didn't I could feel shin splints coming on.  If you are stuck on the treadmill don't forget the 1% incline.

running in flats (minimus shoes) makes it  MUCH more likely for me to get shin splints (I prefer the term medial tibial stress syndrome  ;) ) because of the eccentric load on the Anterior Tib muscle (lengthening contractions).  That is why it is so important to ease yourself into those shoes.  But since I have not run in 15+ yrs, it is not a big deal to "unlearn" technique.

There's a running forum? Who knew.


Anyway, I think before people run in "barefoot" shoes they should actually run a little bit barefoot and learn the forefoot-landing. Heel-striking in vibrams as you might in cushy shoes will destroy your shins!

I've been getting away with Vivo barefoot shoes at work for over a year now. I think it's helped the transition. My feet don't hurt anymore, it's just the shock to the quads/calves that takes time to get over.


I can run for 15 minutes at 130hr and be sore for days.

Running on your forefoot just really works your calves compared to heel striking, regardless of your shoes.  My calves are absolutely blown today after that race yesterday, and my shoes are just a fast light training one, not a full on racing flat. 

Having been as fatigued all year as was yesterday night and today.  That one hour running race takes more out of me than triathlons twice as long and hard rides four times as long.

I'm still acclimating. I haven't run in forever, and riding, even a lot at high intensity, does not prepare me in any way for forefoot running.


It gets more bearable the more I move around. But sleeping for 4-5 hours and then getting up was a surprise. Way tight!

I have not been able to run except on the beach since I destroyed my R knee 29 yrs ago.  I am able to run in flats now 3-5miles thus far with no knee pain at all.  My knee feels like I was riding (good).  My calves, anterior tib, and other muscles hurt like a MF after 3 miles of running and the night after.  That is good pain (muscular fatigue).  But like ygduf, my legs are still acclimating.
 
When I bought my NB shoes, they came with a warning label!
Title: Re: Did you run today?
Post by: ygduf on October 10, 2011, 01:45:04 PM
I used to get shin splints, knee pain and hip pain from running. Figured the shin splints were from heel-striking, but with big cushy shoes I couldn't get away from that.


The first time I ran in the Vibrams was eye opening. Nothing (except muscles) hurt and it was sort-of enjoyable. My only issue now is that my cardio isn't taxed at all by the running my legs can support.


Being patient is not what I'm good at, but I'm trying.

I read a few articles a few years ago about the benefits of barefoot running and how cushioned/supportive shoes lead to injuries and they have seen a big increase in foot/knee injuries in runners since Nike and the other's started making "fancy" running shoes.  They said to get the cheapest, least restrictive shoes to run in if you don't want to run barefoot.  Said a "normal" foot is designed to support the body and the heel striking strides fostered by running shoes is leading to most injuries.


Back in 03-05 I ran a lot, trained and ran a couple marathons, my knees and feet ached after almost every run, I would have to ice my knees all the time after my runs.  Went to a foot doc, he said, "you are not meant to run"  I told him that wasn't an option and I ran another marathon but soon the constant pain was to much and I switched to racing bikes.


I recently started running regularly, 2-3 x a week.  I bought a $30 pair of minimal cushioned adidas clima-cool or something, I can run 4-5 miles with no pain, I am conscience about running on the balls/forefront of my feet.

I'm tempted to switch shoes, but I'm also leary of it. I've had a difficult time with the running, and it seems the simplest changes can sometimes lead to the biggest pains. Plus, the pair I have now are still quite new, I won't be in the market for at least a couple more months I think.

Yeah. To me it makes too much sense to not do. I've been wearing "barefoot" shoes for over a year and it's really helped my lower back pain and my feet feel better. I will eventually run fully on bare feet, but I'm impatient and sabotage myself with too much too soon. I ran 1.5m after riding the trainer for a while. There was some blood, and now I'm not running for a few days. >.<

It was a weird day, I knew it from the very beginning... I was walking around this house, I heard from another girl that there had been several murders here. I did not know if it was true or not all I could do was search why I was here. I woke here without knowing who am I and where am I.

I started chatting with the people around the house, no one really knew what was going on except for the fact that we were locked in this house. It wasn't a big house, 2 stories about 10 rooms. Most of the people were on the ground level. I was on the second floor searching for a clue but it was pointless. The one that setted us up made sure that we had no evidence to find out what we were doing here.

Suddenly, I heard this girl screaming downstair! I ran as fast as I can to see two persons blocking a door. I did not understand why they were doing this. I proceed to ask them what's happening. 

So this girl that I don't know of told me her friend Jan just died and Noriko was in this room with him. The girl told me Noriko was shocked but did not seem to know what happened either but she concealed Noriko too because she was scared.

I tell her to open the door. I walk in, this Noriko girl jumps in my arm crying, repeating me she did not kill him... I look around this small room, Just a tad bigger than a closet,  there was a piano covered of clothes. No idea why there were clothes on that piano...

I look at Noriko and I tell her:Well, there's no cadaver here.
The other girl look at me, she's turning white...
I turn my head to noriko, her eyes are red And SHE BIT ME IN THE NECK
___________________________

I woke up, with one hell of a chill running up my spine. What a weird nightmare, however it's 5:30 am precisely and I'm NOT going to keep on sleeping after that.

I decided to go out and run. Voila.

It was raining and windy but hell... I was just dead 5 minutes ago. Nothing wrong with running in the rain after that isn't it?

2.4km I think.
4min running/1Walking x3 for 15 minutes.

I hope you guys enjoyed the intro.

I did my usual 4 mile run this morning, however it was pitch black for most of it.  I carried a little led flashlight for when any cars passed, they could see me.  A good stretch is along a wooded area, it's amazing how you other senses pick up when you can't see real good.  I could hear the deer or something else scurrying by, which scared the sh!t out of me.

Btw,
I did 3km in 18 minutes exactly.  I Had to stop once to retie my lace on one shoe Darn. Except that, no stop. My heart is feeling good and my legs are starting to hurt from yesterday and today's runs.

I'm really starting to enjoy waking up extra early ( 5:30) to get that run in.
 even my day is starting at a much better pace, I can eat before I get in the shower and since I'm already fully conscious ( because I'm usually a PITA to wake up) I take a lot less time in the shower.

So I'm ready far earlier, no rush at all, I love it.

So
today was:
8*(2'r, 1'w)

the weather is getting colder, 41F but no wind and after a moment I was alright!

And I really like to go up and run at 5:30, seriously best thing I ever did training-wise. No one outside, the weather is fresh, I'm well rested and no traffic or anything. It reminds me when I was in highschool and I would go out to run in the late evening (11pm) but this time, it's better.

I ran after my ride on Saturday. Just 1.3 miles/10 minutes. Trying to deal with ab strain and new shoes. Hopefully the Vivo are the minimal shoes I've been looking for. I was happy with them after that short little jog. Minimal shoe, but my weird toes fit in there without issue.

Felt good to add the extra 30 seconds per run interval. 


This week 3 day 1 is faster than when I started week 3 in the summer.

33F, No wind, no rain, went out running during the sunrise so I had a really nice background and I'm starting to cover more ground.

So I redid the same as monday which was 8x (2'r, 1'w)
I don't really know why but it seems like I was feeling well because I'm pretty sure my pace was faster.

I'm going to upload it later, my girlfriend is still sleeping so I can't go in and get my usb cable. See the file on strava then.

Tomorrow I'm going to do 9x(2'r, 1'w)
and  friday I'm going to do 10x (2'r, 1'w)

I ran 3.9 miles last night. A little slower than usual, for whatever reason the first mile was a real struggle and was 10:20. Settled on about 9:15 after that, though.


Ankles a little weird today. Vivobarefoot shoes are taking some acclimating.

I ran a 15k Saturday morning. A month ago when decided to do this run my goal was to finish under 1:40, I finished 1:33. I'm happy about beating my goal ,but I was secretly hoping for 1:30.  I'll beat that soon though. There were several hills on this course, I need to try and find some hils I can run on.

Did a trail race yesterday.  5 miles, 35:46 I think?  3rd out of 7 in the men U-29 group (there's also a 10 mile race...about 350-400 people total).  First trail race, so I screwed up a bit on positioning.  Think I could have finished 2, since he slowly pulled away in the last mile and I couldn't respond since there was a person in between us on the single track and I couldn't pass.  1st was minutes ahead, so no chance at that.

I did it again, woo,
2.7km
4x (3'r/1'w)
I woke up this morning and it was really hard to get myself to run, I was just plain lazy.

Managed to get off my bed and do it but...

I almost got splattered by some girl backing off her driveway without looking. She stopped when I gave a few hits on her trunk (and I did not stop running because that's how awesome I am.)

And when I arrived home, my father had locked every damn door in the house so I couldn't get in.

Glad we keep a secret hidden key outside.

Overall, this day is starting weird.

Unfortunately I would have been more likely to twist my ankle or run myself into a tree than take him out.  Pretty narrow single track.  Lesson learned though.  Need to pre-run the courses so I know where I can or can't pass.

Finally had a good run. Ran immediately after my bike commute home. After a few minutes to loosen up I felt like I was gliding along and my feet were turning over beneath me, instead of the usual heavy-effort plodding I've been stuck doing.

5K today 32min. (including 5min of walking--see below)
 
This is my first real exercise in 2 weeks.  I thought my upper respiratory stuff was done.  WRONG!  about 3k into the run (I was feeling decent) I started a coughing jag.  I really thought I was gonna puke, I was coughing so hard.  Finally brought up some nasty stuff out of my lungs, walked for about 5 min, then finished.
 
I'm just glad to be doing something again.

Now you guys are making me nervous.  Oh well...offseason and I want to swim more anyway.  Have another race in 3 weeks, but no reason to run except maintaining some decent run fitness over the winter. 

Feels much better with shoes off, but still hurts a little.  Hope it's not a stress fracture.  Like I said, ran the previous two days with zero discomfort.

Sorry man, but in my world, lateral foot pain in a runner = metatarsal stress fx until proven otherwise.  Give it a week. If it gets better, it ain't broke
Title: Re: Did you run today?

Thanks.  I'll keep an eye on it and make an appointment next week if necessary.  Wasn't thinking anything about it really, so I'm glad you mentioned it. 

Edit:

Now that I look at it, it's not my metatarsal in pain.  It's along the outside, but to the rear of the little bony protrusion that starts that.  Feels like a tight tendon there almost.  I'll go see the sports doc either way if it persists though.

4x 1'r/1'w

I aimed to run at 180 strides per minute. You really don't know how fast you can go until you do that and it's actually really easy on the heart which is great. It's just... Fast.

I strained my L calf during the last 1/2 mile of my run.  I made foot-strike and twisted my knee.  Like an idiot I kept going.  Mine felt MUCH better when I was swimming, hurt a little when walking (it hurts behind my knee--gastrocs strain) and hurts like hell today.

Not really "returning". I've never been into running seriously. A few month-long starts and stops over the years, but nothing as regular as when I got into cycling.


I don't swim though, so don't hold your breath for me doing triathlons.

It was yucky yesterday, so I ran on a treadmill :( I dislike the treadmill.
 
While I was on the treadmill, my swim coach caught me and I was busted for not swimming the last few weeks... I'm sooo busted.
 
After the treadmill I took a group fitness class that a friend taught. It was hard work but nice, and I wasn't injured at the end of it either.   :wha:

Running on treadmills suck.


I ran 4.5 this morning in the cold rain.  Several drivers looked at me like I was nuts, but it was refreshing to be out there.

5 miles today.  38deg, 12mph winds.  I dressed well for it, but far less clothes than I would in similar temps on the bike (thick socks, sweat pants, thick long sleeve "dryfit" base, Hoodie, gloves, hat)
 
Far better than riding in this cold.  Only problem is that my L ankle is really sore right now.  I'm not sure if I turned it, or if it was overuse of my peroneal tendon.  I'll know in a day or two.

"Cold" here is like 40s. I can run in a shirt/shorts and cap. To ride takes knee warmers, arm warmers, a insulating base layer, jersey, vest, cap, toe covers...


Running is nice like that.

Ran 3.5 on rougher dirt trails at lunch yesterday. Right calf was complaining the entire time. Pretty sure it's a mild strain vs. the usual soreness that sets in post-run. Running with pain every step was pretty un-fun but I stupidly stuck it out because why give in when you can exacerbate an injury!  :shh:

3.2miles yesterday at a 9.13 pace. Today I'll run intervals, take a group fitness class, and if I have time ride on the trainer for a bit. I'm waiting on an ugly Black Friday clearance swim suit I ordered, I'll start swimming again as soon as it comes in.

That's the smart thing to do. It's so easy to trash your IT band or whatever by ramping up too quickly since you already have great fitness.

yup, definitely, I know I can run a 5km without stopping but my legs just aren't ready for that type of challenge yet. Ruokie and my dad definitely made me realize that.  Ruokie made me realize that yes I have great CV fitness but I'm totally not used to running. While my dad made me realize the stupid fact that even if I can't run for the cardio, I can still do it on the bike. :facepalm:

Smart choice, once those IT Band issues creep in, they can linger for a long long time.  I find running aggravates my IT band very easily, much more then cycling.  I have a foam roller and "The Stick" and use them often.

Another thing I have just figured out is that if I combine my run and swim workouts I accomplish two things.  I still have time for the bike, and I can sufficiently trash my body (the good kind of trashing) without overuse injuries.  I did that on twice in the past 2 weeks, and my legs felt like jello the next day (again, in the good way)

Did 10' 10' 5' 5' trainer workout and then ran outside for just under 3 miles. A little of each to split it up.


My calf felt pretty good until the last 1/2 mile. It's not particularly sore today.

25 min on the trainer (had to stop to get the grocery in the house lol)
then went out to run. Did 1mile felt great during that run, I'm actually feeling more comfortable and it's great, I'll keep on going like that, listening to my body and its limits.

The run, went really well even though it was quite cold about 20f and windy, the roads were full of snow and ice and I never lost grip except two minor moments when I was going up some small hill, nothing like slipping just a little loss of grip on one foot. I was affraid it was going to be much worse.

overall, I'm glad and no pain at all

Damn. I really wanted to post the picture of my blister.


Don't be jealous. I cheated and used cushier Nike free shoes. I felt pretty good. Perfect weather, and I was playing hooky from work, so I just kept going.

edit: I also wanted to say, this was the first run where I felt like everything got tired enough that I really felt like I had to engage my core to keep going. It was sort of sublime, and my form when that happened felt really good. Like I was running from my hips and lower abs, both of which are sore today.

Traveled to Vegas for Christmas meet-up with In-Laws.


Ran each of the past 4 days. 4 miles outdoors, 4 miles (fast treadmill), 3.3 miles (uphill on the treadmill), 6 miles outdoors.


My calves are sore, I have some blisters (as usual), but am otherwise feeling good. My wife came out and rode her bike behind me while I ran the 6 yesterday. Good practice for her to ride a bit, super slow with no pressure, and fun for me to feel like I was being chased the entire time. :P

Btw, she recently bought some yaktrax pro, I tried them on a run and these things are beyond awesome except inside where they can make the safest surfaces into the most dangerous place on earth.

I've gone through a bunch of shoes that all fit and feel fine. Nike Frees, Merrel Trail Gloves, vivo barefoot, vibrams, are the most recent tries. I have weird toes, and they always rub somewhere.


The merrel are my favorite so far for balance of shoe and minimal. They have a mesh upper that spares my toe knuckles, but for some reason the pads on my middle toes fell off pretty ugly-ly.

I've been running outside too for the past month and didn't have such problems. Do you wear proper cold protection like a good scarf or something to cover your neck/mouth and nose? and obviously a hat? I usually only have my eyes uncovered to see outside ( I would actually wear my sunglasses too but they fog up)


ran again today -5F.  Ahah
Everything will be on strava as usual, what I'm trying to do is to control my HR to keep myself from going over my LTHR and that way I am able to run for much longer. My pace isn't as fast as usual because I have to slow down quite a bit to prevent going over LTHR but I guess my body will get better and more efficient so I'll be able to catch back on my previous speed later. Anyway, endurance isn't about sprinting and dying halfway through.

Mid 30s and a bit of rain.  5.3 miles.  Just little enough rain where you don't get too wet but it cools you off, just sprinkling.

At one point some workers who were out for a smoke laughed at me.  I thought it was crazier to walk a quarter mile in the rain to get off their corporate campus to have a smoke (it's a smoke free gigantic campus) in this weather, but we all have our addictions:).

As a sufferer uf chronic sinus infections, the cold air does affect my sinuses.  I use a sinus rinse regularly and mucinex pe when they flare up.  If you use the rinse, be sure to boil the water first, which is a pain and you have to wait til it cools or you will be sorry, but due to the recent brain eating amoeba incidents lately, better safe then sorry.

Ran 6 miles after almost a week off the road due to a chest cold.  I passed a woman jogging with a George Costanza-like Russian hat (ridiculously large) and mirrored CHP glasses.  She probably looks cool sporting them at the local hipster coffee shop.  Outside jogging in 43F (very warm this time of year) and overcast?  Not so much.

I have done a total of 3 days of exercise in the past 2 weeks.  Combination of family problems/travel/work has made it tough.  All 3 were runs, and I can feel my fitness going away.  :(   My 4mile run on Sunday kicked my ass, and my legs still hurt.

I would say you don't lose fitness that fast, but 2 weeks in Costa Rica had me suffering greatly when I got back on the bike.

here's the proof that I can run 5km  http://connect.garmin.com/activity/151801761 (http://connect.garmin.com/activity/151801761) I'm slow, but I can do it.


There ya go haters.

My HR is crazy when I run.

after 5km I stopped to walk but then realized how silly it was to walk after all that so I started running even faster to my car. Realized my HR was at 199 so I wondered if it was possible to go higher than my previous MHR of 201BPM so I Ran even harder and couldn't get it over 200.

Yes, 40 min run. I think just about 4.25miles.  My peroneal tendonitis is getting worse, but I'm getting better at running through it.  Anybody know a good sports med doc?  :P


Edit:  one good thing,  I ran in shorts and a short sleeve shirt. 56 deg with no wind.  Should be in the upper 60s Sunday for my long ride :thumbsup:

3km after 30minutes on the trainer. That run felt GREAT!
Roads were covered by a fine powdery snow, it was beautiful too.


And I definitely think that riding my trainer before helped with my run. It did warm me up pretty good which prevented my HR from going crazy.

I did a long run Saturday, and used EFS. This time I felt way better. I love that stuff.

Totally forgot my HRM though.

I know on long runs it could be because of chaffing. I get hot, sometimes I'd like to take my shirt off.

Yesterday when I was running there was a guy that had flipped his shirt over his head, but still had his arms in the arm holes... it was interesting.

It depends. My ex had man-boobs, so he should never run shirtless. Maybe if he had run more, he wouldn't have had man-boobs.

Planned to run today. I've slept like dung the last 2 days because of allergies, but it was pretty and I had 3 hrs between my last patient and a meeting.

I made it 1/2 mile and turned around and walked home.  I'm taking a nap instead.

Yesterday I was planning on a 3 hour ride. Got home and was totally exhausted, so i decided i'd take a 30-40 minute nap and go for a 2 hour ride. I ended up w/ a 2 hour nap and non ride. Felt much better today though, I guess my body thought it needed the rest.

So today I did 45km on the bike, was around 30f, not a lot of elevation but a good effort going and then I had the wind in my face so all in all, a good ride.
http://connect.garmin.com/activity/162872590 (http://connect.garmin.com/activity/162872590)

Real MHR must be around 185-190 not 240.


Then this evening I went for a run, asked my friend if he wanted to go with me. He told me he already did 10km today but at my pace he should be alright. So we started running at a good pace(for me) we did the first 2.5km as expected. Then we turned around and we realized we had the wind in our back. My friend, being the S.O.B. that he is told me : hey, nice moment to raise the pace actually. So he did and I did too.
In the last km I had a cramp in my right leg so obviously, I went harder.

So 5.2km in 31:11. that's like 5 minutes faster than my previous 5km Personal best.
http://connect.garmin.com/activity/162872583 (http://connect.garmin.com/activity/162872583)

Yesterday I did 25km on the bike and then 2.5km run.

Today I did 4km on the run and I plan to ride this afternoon too.

Thanks to Joel and Jen, I've decided to use the next 6months to build my run to be able to do a half marathon. If anyone has good HM plans just shoot them to me it will be greatly appreciated.

However for the moment I started the HM thing by trying to build on my speed and distance by doing 3min Run/ 1Min walk at a faster pace than I usually go when I want to do my longer runs and so far so good I think my pace is around 5min/km which is a whole min/km faster than I used to run at.

I can tell the Heart is doing better, after my 4km run my heart went from 189bpm to 110 faster than ever :)

Sorry for not changing everything from km to mph, my father is downloading something and the only website still working is SC.com

tomorrow is supposed to be 3miles. I'll run with her for the first 2miles and then I'll go for that last mile alone.

First long run done.  http://connect.garmin.com/activity/168343456 (http://connect.garmin.com/activity/168343456)

I'm starting to cover some serious ground around town now.

Oh While I'm at it, I had to run down some hill, any trick to make it feel nice? All I could do was a braking motion to prevent myself from running down it at 30mph( slight exageration) And I'm starting to think maybe my shoes aren't good for long distance. At mile 3 they started rubbing on my big toe and that never went away.


But, overall, great run, I overdressed, but glad I had a cycling jersey/baselayer under my windjacket. so I took it off and Yay pockets.  :thumbsup:

Some girl in my class who's also a neighbor, kept on talking to me about how she started running this week but needed a new pair of running shoes so that reminded me that I wanted some new shoes since mine are blistering me to death.

went at my LRS tried like 5 pairs of running shoes. Tried the New balance minimalist, they actually feel great and you CAN'T run on the heel with that or the feeling you get is so stupid you won't do it anymore and I was automatically able to feel the difference in my muscles. (AKA wtf I never used those muscles before!?)
Oh and I had this 20$ off card
so here it is.
New pair of shoes

I ran 4.5km today .5 of them were in the minimus, they actually feel really really great, the size is perfect for me. When I switched back to my shoes the difference was CRAZY. I felt like I was going to fall.  Which eventually happened. Yeah. Really.  :facepalm:  While going from grass to a concrete sidewalk my foot tripped on the concrete border and I scratched a knee and my left hand but I stood up and kept on running my 3min. No blood or anything, I simply looked like an idiot.

However this run was great, Sunny, not a lot of wind, 50f and It was still warm enough to run with a long sleeve baselayer and shorts.

Oh, moskitoes are back too but they were not able to catch me so  :thumbsup:

Alex. Instead of switching shoes, just run/walk in the minimums for the entire workout.  If you want to work harder, just run faster (basically doing intervals).  Every week, increase your running time, and decrease the walking time. 


The way you did it today, you are reinforcing poor technique by using the cushioning running shoes

just found the calendar with every running events close to my town this summer. I guess I have no choice anymore but to participate in some of them. Most are 5/10k so I have absolutely no excuses to avoid them.

First race is exactly next sunday at 10am, however I have a lunch at the restaurant for mother's day at 11-11:30. Don't know if I'll be able to make it.

Started with the vibrams again. I just went ahead and ran a mile in them. Stretched my calves, did two different exercises for them, and stretched my calves again. I hope I don't get too sore, I have shopping to do.

Went outside for a quick run before the rain and lunch, decided to go fast right from the start and kept it for the whole first km, so 4min22. Strava says my best km was 5:48  :facepalm:  Like if it wasn't enough, there's a graph, top right, telling me I did 4:22/km too.

Most of the soreness was. I took the socks off and they were much better. I'll either just run or do the little exercises, but not both. I know I don't want to over do it with my ankles, they aren't bothering me at all though.

I'm Glad I don't seem to be having as bad of a time adapting to my minimus, I sure have sore calves but I can go walk/run with it. I guess my pain tolerance is higher. Plus, no knee pain at all is a real motivator (even if my calves are trying to kill me).
Title: Re: Did you run today?
Post by: ijen on May 08, 2012, 05:02:23 PM
I have 3 types of minimal shoes, and the only time I had real pain was after being too overzealous in my Merrell pace gloves. I think that was more like a calf strain because it hurt like a mofo. The FiveFingers don't bother me much and the Newtons hardly at all. Calves will sometimes kill after a run, but it's gone the next day. Though with the Newtons, I've had no extra calf fatigue at all. Maybe I'm acclimated already.

I think they have really small drop too. like 3mm but I'm really not sure about that. I'll check.

Forget what I said, I think they're all zero drop except a few with an optional 3mm heel adapter or something

Not quite a run but I went at some National park with my girlfriend. We had a great day, we climbed a mountain then walked by the beach for a few miles.
There was plenty of huge rocks to climb by the beach to have fun and to keep me acting like a kid. I'll upload some pictures later if you guys are interested.

Had fun yesterday, we got my mother in law on 0-5km running program, she was already really happy to be able to do 4x1minutes it's good to see!

Then I went with my girlfriend by the sea, we ran 3x9minutes + some small sprints/slow run to get back to the car.

My girlfriend was ectastic to be able to do so much and man, 45minutes at that speed isn't bad for my base at all so it was a good day.

Only little thing is my achille tendon is sore from all the running with the minimus during the last few weeks so I'M working on strenghtening it. However, I don't want to go back, running is feeling so much better without any knee pain, it's perfect!

We then walked around the park there were a few live Chickens and a pair of roosters, a mother duck and her ducklings and a bunch of rabbits. My girlfriend REALLY liked it.

Yes, thought I would try running after work/before bed. While it was cooler it wasn't easier.  It was actually a little harder, because I had food still sitting in my stomach, and I was tired because it was bedtime, felt like I was dragging. I think if I do it this way a few more times I'll get used to it.

So far so good on that plan, I really can't wait to do longer distances but I'll stick to the plan and build up slowly but safely and for good.


Today for a change I went for the trails, I picked all the side trails with little bumps and whatever for added challenge and all the path marked ''hard'' with fancy little hills with as much as 21% grade for a few meters.

I really really like trail running, it's refreshing, especially when you can run and on your side there's this great looking view of the river and the forest.

I ran 6.5k on Wed.  I haven't run anything like that distance since high school.  Honestly I don't understand the attraction.

When I ran last winter, there came a point where it was almost enjoyable for short periods of time.

I ran 3 of the last 5 days. On vacation without my bike with a pool that is too short for laps.  40min each day.  Flat terrain (Houston) on a great surface.  I did not ever hurt. I hurt worse after going for a 2 hr walk in my NB Minimus shoes. My IT bands hurt from that but not from running.  :/

Minimal shoes cured my chronic back pain.


They also gave me achillies tendonitis when I did TMTS running in Costa Rica in Feb.


YMWV, but if I wear anything with even an inch of heal I get lower back pain in les than a day.

Whatever works Alex.  I wear shoes with a one inch heel all day long (dress shoes or standard running shoes for scrubs) so I hurt when I walked (but not ran) in the zero rise shoe.  Just wear a style and stick with it.

We used to think that high heels caused back pain in women. Now we know that the only correlation with back pain is frequent changing of heel height.

My take on your question:


Running in minimal shoes is about the hardest thing you can do to your feet if they aren't acclimated to minimal footwear. I figured the fastest was for my feet to adapt was to switch to minimal shoes in everyday life as well as when I was running.


I still don't run much, but the back pain is gone. My feet have also gotten 1 size shorter and something like 9mm wider. All of that physiological change is the result of wearing minimal shoes all the time (vivo barefoot, for the record) for the past two years.


Good, bad, I dunno. I like it for the back pain thing, and I feel like strengthening my arch has maybe helped prolong the time I can cycle before the onset of hotfoot. Walking barefoot or in Vivos also feels.. therapeutic. I don't know how else to explain it, but I like the feeling I get with my feet stretching and expanding with every step. It's kind of like a little massage, to me.

Good take too, thanks for your answer, I appreciate it.

So far I'll keep on wearing my normal shoes but if I have a good deal someday I may give it a shot, I'm really curious to see how it would affect me on a daily basis. I usually have a low arch and because of that I usually have problem with pronation especially with my normal shoes where I actually have custom orthesis to help with my arch or I get pain in my knees. But with minimalist shoes, I don't have this problem at all and I don't need them, actually, I no longer have knee pain when running which is freaking salvation. It may just be a result of running more and my muscles/bones/tendons being stronger but I can almost make a direct link with the moment when I started using them and the pain leaving almost instantly.

On topic now : I did 2 run, and rode my bike too today.
Woke up, watched the tour a bit, went for a run should be around 2 miles http://app.strava.com/activities/13129637 (http://app.strava.com/activities/13129637)
Then came back, to yell at the screen to SHUT UP LEGS!!!!
then ate and went for a short ride in the afternoon.   http://app.strava.com/activities/13129645 (http://app.strava.com/activities/13129645)
(I'll let you try to find out when I had this 30mph headwind, it should be pretty easy to spot)
and in the late evening I went for a 3mile run with my girlfriend  http://app.strava.com/activities/13158765 (http://app.strava.com/activities/13158765)

All in all, a pretty good day.

I have to do a 3.5mile run today, my legs are still sore from last week+yesterday(work+little bit of cycling)

for a few days I brought a pedometer at work out of curiosity and ended up with numbers around 7000 - 9000 steps per 8h shifts. The pedometer estimates it to be about 5miles.  No wonder my legs are toasted if I go for a run after that.
Title: Re: Did you run today?
Post by: KandK_Dad on July 22, 2012, 01:57:13 PM
Did 3 and some change before warmup/cool down. I had been doing out and backs to a neighborhood near mine but noticed that the sidewalks circled around for a nice lap along with a bridge right down the middle. Was trying to figure out a straight up 3 mile segment and ended up doing a little bit more. No problems. My body is still trying to get used to running again and so far so good(knock on wood). I know I shouldn't be running in the heat and humidity but train like you fight and fight like you train. It's really not that bad but by about 30 minutes or so I'd like a little something to drink. Can't wait till the weather gets better.

In other news, my garmin thinks I'm jesus and allowed me to walk on water

I've been riding and swimming with no running he last two months or so.  Ran twice then raced a 10k last week on vacation.  Painful.  Terribly painful.  Raced 4 minutes slower than the same race last year.  Maybe 1 minute was due to hotter weather, 1.5 to fitness, and 1.5 due to blowing up from not knowing my fitness sucked so much.

Officially my first day back running in over 20 years. Decided to go to the local HS track; which is the nicest HS track I've ever seen. Couple of warm up laps combined walking and running. Not bad.
 
Decided to do a timed mile, concentrating on form. According to the stopwatch on my phone, time was 10:20. Conditions were sunny, a little humid and 80 degrees.
 
That used to be good for a podium spot in HS ... for the TWO mile run.

Lots of time for improvement!  For the most part, I'm running quicker than I was in high school, which is the opposite of a lot of people.  Though I was 5'7 at 17 and 6'1 at 19, so maybe high school isn't a good indicator :).

Running out of anger and frustration is bad for pacing. 3 miles 30 min.  My first mile was 7:10.  Then I almost threw up and walked/ trotted the rest.   :(

1st XC day. Running in fallow farm fields is good for a 30% reduction in pace.
 
Tried Endomondo app. GPS seems pretty accurate. I"m not sure how I feel about that electronic voice telling me how slow I am every mile.
 
The good news is that I still remember how to descend a hill without breaking anything.

Forgot to post, my last two runs, here's yesterday (http://app.strava.com/runs/18366401), managed to finally hit the 4 mile mark for the run. I try to do a 1/4 warm up/cool up but I'm also trying to get in some distance for a run in October which is 8k. I should be able to hit the mark. Crazy thinking a month ago I was struggling to 1.5 miles. I miss running so much. I used to do weekend races the way some of you guys do bike races.

Decided to get my run in yesterday early so I could get some laundry done when the fam got home and went out with it just a little warmer than I was expecting. I used to run in the heat a lot, as well as ride in it so it's not that much of an issue. Been working on form and keeping my feet going in the right direction and my knee has been thanking me. At work today so a day off and back to the grind on Wed..

I already had a somewhat good ride in prior to that run. I ran with my girlfriend at a fast pace for her so she stopped to rest at an athletic track while I did 5 laps around it. I did them pretty fast to be honest and I'm sad I forgot my HRM cause I was curious to see my HR on these laps. I went fast enough to PR not only my Half-mile, but also my 1KM time and my 1mile time. Without even taking a rest me and my gf went back home.

Close to my home me and my girlfriend had a little race, she went by a shorter route to give her some chance and by the end we were almost head to head I sprinted like crazy but she won by about 5-10 meters.  :(  :P


Also, I'm glad to report that I really liked to run with my new elastic speedlaces, they really make my shoe feel like if it was just a part of my body. The feeling is really nice and you have to love how easier it is to put your shoes in. Also I used a coupon at a sport shop in town that was if you buy for 50$ you get 25$ off. I used most of it to get good running socks and so far so good. I usually started blistering at around 5k and up and on that run no blistering or redness. [size=78%] [/size] :thumbsup:

Hi runners. I hate running and only do it when I am racing cross and need to pick my bike up and run for some reason, usually doesn't last long.

Anyhow, my wife has recently started running. She is hoping to use it as a way to drop some weight. She is not overweight by any means, but does have ~20lbs that she would like to drop.

I realize diet is a factor in this and I think she has been eating decent for the most part. She has been running for 1.5mos. She is doing some intervals of sorts and getting in about 3.1 miles over 40 minutes nearly every morning. She has not seen any weight change and is getting frustrated. I am stoked that she is active and working out, whether she loses weight or not, but I know that she is not as excited as me.

Soo... what type of running should she do if she wants to lose weight? I can also Google it, but figured I would ask you guys for your experience also.

Thanks.

Post by: RUOkie on August 22, 2012, 12:32:30 PM
Seth:  I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but exercise does NOT lead to weight loss.  She needs to be watching calories and then exercising for the other benefits (higher HDL, lower total cholesterol, better stress management, higher energy levels).  The weight loss can ONLY come from eating less.
 
Multiple studies have been done that show that the average person who starts a new exercise program actually GAINS 5#.  :(
Title: Re: Did you run today?
Post by: shovelhd on August 22, 2012, 12:43:02 PM
A few things.

Make sure that she is drinking enough during exercise.
If she hydrates with a sports drink, switch to water.
She may have hit a plateau. Trade speed for distance and time.
No complex carbs or fatty foods within 2 hours of bedtime.
Reduce snacking during the day.

RU said it. Eat for weight management (up or down) and exercise for fitness.

Tell her to get on Strava and run faster/longer. Stress - adapt.

I bought her a Garmin FR110 the other day so she has started uploading to Garmin Connect and seems to like it. I was hoping that would help keep her motivated and stuff. I'll try to get details on her diet and make sure she is not effing it up somewhere that I am not aware of.

I'll get her on Strava eventually though, ygduf.

I've stopped usuing Myfitness pal and switched back to the loseit app. Myfitness pal gives you too many calories, I wasn't noticing any weight loss with it. A couple of my friends have noticed this as well.

Seth, if all she is doing is a 30 to 40 minute run at that pace, a few times a week she's going to need to cut her calories.

Bumped the number of intervals up to ten, lowered the time by ten seconds, and did them at 80% to 85% today. We'll see how that goes when I bump the time and then intensity back up over the next couple weeks.

Running at least 10min/miles.  I met all three finishing with an unofficial time of 1:03:12 sub 9 min miles.  Which for me, only running once (friday) since last fall is a good time.  I enjoyed every step of the way.  My quads are killing me and I have a nice fat blister on my toe, but I just might do some running races this fall.

I hate threadmills with a passion... I don't get why I would use one unless it's pouring or if it's -40 outside.

Inclement weather is the only excuse to run. I enjoy running in the rain, you don't get cold like you do cycling, it only lasts 30-60 min, and you get to feel like a badass and nod knowingly at the 3-4 other people you see out running.

I've run in snowstorms as well, there's a difference between and ice and snow, when the ground is covered in ice, you can't run.  That happens on occasion in the NE.


Yes in the cold you feel like a badass, icicles forming on your face, people think you are nuts.  I don't mind that.  I hate riding in the cold, if it's below 30 I hate it.

Yah it's really really different on a bike. I totally hate it when it gets too cold, my finger and toes gets numbs even with everything on. I will still try to stay outside for as long as possible cause I also am not much of a trainer masochist but I don't quite have the choice over here.

And did you try shoes with good grips or something like yaktrax on the ice? I managed to do fine last winter. I sure didn't have the volume that I had this summer but I did run on ice a few time. However, I ran slower and I did more shorter steps.

Proof that it is possible:

No i never tried those spiked shoe strap thingies, even when I was running often, the few times the surface was icy, I ran inside.  MO it's not worth slipping and falling.  You are just more HTFUer than I ;)

Managed to run today. I think that makes 3 times in the last month. I hate starting over. My old body has to stretch back out again.^^^ I ran for 3.5mi of that so I'm feeling good. I'll be happy in 6 months or so when I have a base well enough to start adding some speed.. looks like it's gonna be a long winter.

Did 4 miles straight + warmup/down. Figured out that for some reason along the line I let my gait get outta hand and as a result my knee suffers. As long as I consciously think about turning over consistently and tracking my feet in the same direction I do just fine. The only nags I feel then are the gotta get used to the distance ones..

After being told by her vet that it was ok, my doggie was cleared to run. I just asked if it would be ok for her to go on runs with me and she said as long as i didn't push her to hard in the beginning. Stupid doggie base miles.

newho. Did a good 3 miler. Took her on the first two and she did great. Dropped her off at home and finished my run. She was wore out, but i know she likes to get out of the house and I can't blame her. Get her built up and used to it and I might take her outta the neighborhood for some longer runs.

Was out for a run, it was much warmer than I thought so I came back home to take a layer off. My father was about to leave so I asked him to drop me somewhere. It happened to be very close but it saved me a part of running down hill. So I ran... 10.5km. Exactly halfway when I turned around to go back home, it started raining, but it was nothing crazy, just... refreshing.

However the more I run the more I realize I run from a faucet to another so I'm thinking about getting that

I'm just wondering if these fuelbelts are annoying since I've never tried one and I usually try to run with as little crap as possible on me.

There's nothing wrong with them. Me personally I don't even consider hydrating during a run until I know I'm running more than 90 minutes. I see people get the 4 bottle system and load it up on water for a 5k. I never understood that. If you're running faucet to faucet then why not carry a bottle, one of those with a hand strap, and fill it when necessary?

Well currently I have the chance to be able to do that but during the winter I may go on rides longer than 5-10k and the faucets are simply not working.
I would also like the convenience to not need to run from faucet to faucet.

But yeah, for 5k and less I usually do not drink but over that I tend to get thirsty and my hr seems to spike. I guess I could do 10k without but since there's no need to have the extra pain of dehydration... why not?


also on the run I did, I ate crap and had one of those painful stomach cramp for most of the run. I was wondering how long it would take to go away and to be fair, it took well over 45minutes. I ran through it and I have no regrets, it was an interesting experiment and the coclusion is : there's definitely a lot of room in the hurt locker to bury myself in...

Next sunday I have my first official 10k run, there's 900 registration for the 10k alone, it will be interesting to see where I stand. I have absolutely no idea how good I'll do. I hope to finish it under an hour, if I can do under 55minutes I'll be pleased, under 50 : ectastic like If managed to stop a train full of crazed bears with my bare hands.

If I am not running longer than an hour, I don't carry water, however, I have just started running again so I haven't been running in hot/humid weather.  I did a 7 mile race over labor day weekend, they had water stations along the route. 

Those belts are ok, many moons ago when I was training for a few marathons, I carried on that held a water bottle and had a pouch for gel's, it wasn't that bad.

Pre-hydrate before your run, a few minutes before you head out the door. You can figure it out for your body and even with some heat you can manage 90 minutes w/o water. It's completely possible.

also on the run I did, I ate crap and had one of those painful stomach cramp for most of the run. I was wondering how long it would take to go away and to be fair, it took well over 45minutes.

Better to have cramps than sharts. Just one of those things. Again, it's all about your body. Depending on the food I may have to wait up to an hour before I run after eating. At a minimum, give yourself that hour after eating and before running.

Next sunday I have my first official 10k run, there's 900 registration for the 10k alone, it will be interesting to see where I stand. I have absolutely no idea how good I'll do. I hope to finish it under an hour, if I can do under 55minutes I'll be pleased, under 50 : ectastic like If managed to stop a train full of crazed bears with my bare hands.
I know you've run races but with that many people I'll give a quick piece of advice and then I'll shut up. Walk up, look around, find the starting line. If you don't have to stretch /warm up go ahead and get a spot. When it's time to race people will crowd the start and if you're at the back you may lose a lot of precious time. Nothing sucks more than trying to set a PR at a race only to have the start be gun timed and waste time and energy getting up through the field. You wanna set a PR? It's all about the start. Get around as many people in the beginning as you can and settle into your race pace quickly, use the sidewalk if you have to. Determine if you want a negative split or not. Even with the garmin it's nice to know where you need to be in the race. Make yourself a  pace band (http://www.marathonguide.com/fitnesscalcs/PaceBandCreator.cfm) if you want. It's all the little things you never think about that can make or break your day.
Good luck and hope this helps.

First track workout since 2005, met up with a local running club and joined them for their track workout. Warm up, 3x1mi with 200m recovery, Warm down, total was a bit over 6 miles but I didn't use my phone or watch to record anything.

There were about 50-60 people there at 5:30am, about half were women, I was surprised.  I enjoyed it, my legs are tired now.

Non-official time from my garmin is 54:07
http://app.strava.com/runs/23581997 (http://app.strava.com/runs/23581997)

Was on the freaking frontline, started running with the 35-40minutes guy at like 5-6min/mile and then realized I was not supposed to go at that speed... Oups slowed down, went back to my usual pace. My hr was through the roof the whole time. Even when standing at the line my HR was around 140bpm lol. Tried to keep it low but whatever I kept on and at around the 6km mark. My hrm started sliding and became a HRM belt. Didn't know it somewhat worked there. I had some side cramps near km8 but pushed through it, the HRM gave me some CRAZY numbers like 250 because of that ahaha.

Gave all I had at 500m from the line and There ya go. I did much better than I thought and I have my own finisher medal now!

I'll have pictures on my facebook and if you guys want I can upload some here later.
Official results in like 1-2 hours I think.

Took a few extra days off...

http://app.strava.com/runs/24423679

50 degrees...felt awesome.  Looks like the run intervals I was right 9-10 min/mile pace and I was able to keep my hr under 160.  I wasnt focusing on that but I know the first time I started this I would be up to 170-175 fairly quick.

I am looking forward to being able to string these intervals together and be able to run without having to walk.  Lets hope I can stick with it this time.

So I go for a run after work, as I am running through the WCU campus, 2 female students are running just up ahead, they stop and 1 starts stretching, bending over, her rump facing me, wearing those tight yoga pants that are all the rage now. touching her toes...


I think she did it on purpose...

Did a 3.8 mile mud run today.

Give me a triathlon any day. Trying to navigate that mud was awful. I was pretty sure I'd face plant. There were obstacles as well, climbing walls, swimming mud pits, etc. It was fun, but I wouldn't jump at doing one again.

Requisite dirty photo.

Makel, what's the matter?

I had a Migraine took me awhile to realise it, and then I over did it with the squats trying to do a pistol squat, I'm still having trouble getting up and down :) But I will succeed in my pistol squat quest!


I'm going to get up in the morning for a run tomorrow, and do an HIIT core workout. I'm looking foward to it, is that normal? I look foward to my workouts, and get frustrated when I run out of time for them, or don't have enough time to do what I want. I think I'm an addict now.


Wylde, how's the C 2 5k going? Are you having any problems with shin splints or knee or ankle pain?

running in cooler/wet weather is way more enjoyable than riding in it.


KK - because of the time change not happening yet, it's pitch black when I can run before work, i'd prefer it a little bit lighter, still dark but with the sun coming up, so I've been running after work til the time change.

Did a relay Cross country race with a friend. It was painful.
http://app.strava.com/runs/25682619 (http://app.strava.com/runs/25682619)
First two laps I paced myself way too hard, My HR redlined I felt bad and all and when my friend took the relay I was seriously dead. Took my 8-10minutes to rethink it thoroughly and paced myself better for the two other relays. I wasn't ''fast'' but at least, I raced the whole thing. Racing is totally another deal compared to simple endurance.

Had fun though, we finished 5 out of 7 teams in the 12km relay.

for some reason km 3 and 5 paces are all wrong when 3 should be close to 4 and same for 5 and 6.

5 minute warm up walk, then 4 minutes run 1 minute walk 5 times, 5 minute cool down walk. 

Felt good, it was also like 70 degrees.  I like it better when its ~55.


The 500 doesnt like running.  I will put it in my pocket, and ive noticed that it picks up the swinging in my pocket as a speed change and will constantly show a slower speed then back to normal.  I held it in my hand and watched it.  I think if I am going to keep running i may want to get a gps watch.

Week 6 day 1.

2 12 minute runs.  Backed the pace down a bit so I would be able to finish without having to stop early.  A bit bigger of a jump than I thought it would be.  First one went good.  Legs started to get tired during the second one, but I was able to finish it. 

Running in the cold/cool air is nice.

Pick whatever link you want...I dont think the garmin is quite as accurate...anyways


Week 6 Day 2

Being short on time, I hurried to the park, changed, and started my run.  First time here, but not the last.  The one section that I ran was a wooden path/boardwalk about 2-3 feet off the ground through the woods.  That was cool.  I also think I saw at least a dozen deer.  You can tell I wasn't sure where I was going. 

I will be coming back to this park.

Hey, thanks RU!  I hardly ever come in here as I reserve running for when I am being chased, but for some reason I clicked and saw this...


She was/is pretty stoked and is working to get faster and hopefully improve her coral/reduce her chances of getting bumped.  Looking at her pacing I think she can go faster.  She was strong at the end.

There was beer and all kinds of junk food. I had to be at work a few hours later, so all I left with was a brochure and a bottle of water. It was still fun, I got to watch giraffes run away from me, and get lost and go up and around some kind of wood loop thing twice. It seems like a nice change from the neighborhood, and it's close by work.

I ran 5 miles yesterday, had to pull out the fleece line dryfit, it was onlly 51 but it was cold for some reason.
I'm going to start increasing my mileage, which seems to be difficult after I've done a core workout with squats and squat jumps in it. It was pointed out to me that maybe I should do the core and squats workout after I run.  :facepalm:  so simple yet so hard to figure out  :D
I think I want my weekly long run to bump up to 9 miles. I think that's a good base, so if I want to do a half last moment, I'm not far behind. I don't think I'll ever do a full, I'm just being honest.

Makel, if you do a nine miler every week, you should be maintaining a good enough base to RACE a half.  Just throw in a brick every so often and you'd be golden.

I did forget to tell something about the zoo pint run. At the end of the Rhino trail there was this twisting incline we ran up. I was breathing hard, I was trying to get oxygen to my leg muscles, and I was passing people. (shocker I know!) Anyways, there was a woman that tried to tell me how I should breathe as I approached her, and then passed her. I just nodded my head and continued to pass her. I thought it was odd at the time, that she felt she needed to give running advice to someone that was faster than her.

Yeah, I just need to get back up to it.

RU, I bet you could do it, you could focus on the swim and the bike, the run comes with time though and IMO it sucks until then.
oh I know very well what it would take.  And I don't have the time or inclination to make the time to train properly.  I accept that.  And I won't do a race to just finish.  I can do that on my own.  If I have no chance to be competitive in my age group I won't bother

Turkey Prediction 5k race. 

You write down your predicted time and you can win a turkey.  I wrote down 28 minutes based on my time this past thursday.  I did not know about the hill on todays course.  29:18 was my official time. Even though that wasnt worthy of a turkey, im still happy with it.

Woke up at 5:15 to run was dark for most of my run :/ Winter sucks.

at some point I was blocked by a fence, tried to jump over it like they do in the movies.

Sadly, my life is far from being a movie, I crashed on the other side like an idiot.  :facepalm:

Glad it wasn't even yet 6am, no one was there to witness it.  otherwise, Z2 again for about 40 minutes can't wait to hit z3 and z4...

35th Annual Brian's Run 5 miler


Woke up feeling like complete crap, sinuses are killing me (docs tomorrow I hope).  Really wanted to do this race, my 2 little girls were gonna do the 1/2 mile kids race, so I packed them up and we went.  Warming up I was a little dizzy and my HR was high.  My oldest did the kids race on her own and I ran next to my little one.  They loved it and got their medals  :)


I wanted to run 7:30 min miles for this, I knew in warm up that was not gonna happen so I changed my goal to 8min miles.  Run was good, kinda hilly, very crowded which slowed me down in the beginning, once I got into a groove I kinda felt better.  I stopped strava a little after I finished, clock time said 38:xx I believe, strava has me at 7:40min miles, not too far off my goal. http://app.strava.com/activities/30613263 (http://app.strava.com/activities/30613263)


Me and the girls before the race

I was pleased, haven't done that run since I was a runner, in 2005.  My little one hasn't taken her medal off since sunday, except to sleep, wears it to school and all  :)   There were about 1000 runners this year and it went smooth, started on time and everything.  The course is different, no longer starts at WCU, they moved it to Henderson HS and it's now a 5 miler, not a 10k.


My daughter and I were in a photo on the front page of the local newspaper Monday, it was funny.

~5k tonight.  Did the Wednesday night group run.  Makes it a little easier when there are other people around.  The running shop that does this run did a prediction run.  I wrote down 29 minutes and was just going to run a nice comfortable pace again.  Ended up running it in 27:56 according to their stopwatch/timer. 

Felt pretty good after I warmed up and got my breathing in control, so I just went with it.

Damn W, you are a running machine!


I ran this morning, it was cold and rainy.  My sinus infection has kept me inactive since sunday so I went easy this morning.  Stupid dog came after me right after I started, I had a run in with him before and his owner.  I continued on, then on the way home he came after me again, I do not know where he lives, but it's a few streets over.  I am gonna:
1. Kick it several times (I love dogs and would rather not have it come to this)
2. Spray the **** out of it with mace or
3. have it impounded


His owner admitted to me last time that his dog chases people, I would hate for this black lab to pay because his owner is a ass hole. There is a leash law here, besides, who lets/wants their dog roaming the streets freely???  IF this dog bites one of my kids, it will get ugly. Other than that, enjoyable run.

Longest I have run yet.  Felt pretty good.  Started off kinda easy.  My ankle has been sore the past few days from Tuesday night.  I had stepped off the side of the road a little funky when a car decided to wait until the last minute to get over.  Felt fine this morning, and after 10 or so minutes I knew it was good.  Felt like I could have gone a little further actually.

I am seriously considering a spring marathon.


My boss wants me to run the half at the Glass City Marathon at the end of April. She has been sending me training plan links trying to convince me.   I know I would be able to get up to that distance but I already have a bunch of races planned in April. 
Title: Re: Did you run today?
Post by: WCroadie on December 17, 2012, 09:34:14 AM
If you want my $0.02 don't run the 1/2.  Focus on your bike training if you want to race in April.  Running is great cross training thru winter, but once spring comes, you should focus on the bike.


I am probably foregoing the 2013 bike racing season, so if I run a marathon, I am not hurting my cycling specific training.  Coolrunning.com has some good race training plans for free, I plan to modify the intermediate marathon plan, to incorporate some cycling as training.


I ran 2 marathons before I raced bikes, my goal will be to beat those times.

Post by: Wylde06 on December 17, 2012, 09:45:38 AM
Thats what I was planning on.  I told her that I will have to see how my running goes through the winter once I get into "training mode" on the bike.  I plan on running still, just nothing serious.  Maybe I will target something in the fall once racing is done (if I keep up with the running over the next year as much as I hope to)

Another track workout, some of these guys and gals are fast.  Did a 1.25 mile warmup, 800 meters tempo then 1 mile as fast as possible, they call it a TT.  According to strava my 1 mile time was 6:03, according to the timer there I was 6:21 but started in the second group, a few seconds back so my actual time is probably a little slower than 6:03.  BUT I got my new forerunner 4:10 so I hope to get more accurate times.

5k tonight.  Wednesday night group run.

http://app.strava.com/activities/33167767

Started off a little fast and slowed down a bit as the run went on.  I guess that happens when you start with a small group and, like on a group ride, you want to keep up.

4.4 tonight.  Did the Thursday night group run.  It is a 3 mile loop, with the option of turning around at the 3 mile mark and running it in reverse for 6 miles.  I turned around, but cut through the mall up the road and ended up with 4.4.  I actually felt really good tonight.  My breathing was good and my HR wasnt through the roof the whole time.  Im happy with that.  Im sure I will be doing the whole 6 miles soon.

4 miles in the new shoes.  Felt good.




29 degrees and windy so I stuck to the MUP.  Covered by trees so the wind wasnt so much a factor.  Took a little longer to get my breathing in control...the colder air made me a little wheezy the first 2 miles or so, then I felt fine.  I seem to be getting better at controlling my HR and breathing...as long as I am not trying to kill myself.  Mile 4 was a 9 minute mile and it felt pretty good as far as my breathing goes.

cycling is a much better hangover cure than running is.  Or at least it is easier to do hungover. 

45 min run after waking up with a bad head.   Could not eat anything before the run.   But I feel MUCH. Better now.

Ya, I tend to stay hungover until I get moving and do something. Getting in a run meant i could go back, nap for a couple hours, and then be productive the rest of the day in college. Haven't been hungover since really, maybe a couple times.

My Dad gave me a marathon training book for christmas, Hansons Marathon Method (and some cold hard cash).  I think I'm gonna run a spring marathon hen ride my bike again.  I really really enjoy running, not as much as riding, but the job, as evident by this morning and Saturday morning, makes for difficult consistent training.  I can run almost any time of the day and in less time than a ride.

Didn't really increase this last week just 7.2miles, cuz evertime I stopped to drink I my tummy hated me.

I did focus on my breathing though, it helped. I tried to really make sure I used all of my lungs and not just the top 1/3, had to keep reminding myself, I noticed that I ran a little faster without really thinking about that though.

Figured I would go out and run today.  3.5 miles.  Felt pretty good.  Went out with the intent of keeping the pace easy (for me) and did just that.  Breathing was in control the entire time, which is something I try to work on whenever I get out.

 Looking at the strava times, my 1/2 mile, 1k, and 1 mile pace were all pretty much the same.  Im gonna say thats a good thing and shows that I was able to keep the pace steady for a nice chunk of the run


This run gave me 6.66 miles for the week!  :D

Beer mile was interesting:  local tri club put it on and costumes were the norm.  I was the only plain clothed person as it was my first.  We had to drink 4 different beers, Bud (yuck), Busch (worse), Natural Ice (even worse and lastly warm Milwaukee's Best (the beast and by far the worst).  There were several "reversals" but I was able to keep mine down, how, I do not know.  It may have been better to force its return though.  My time was horrendous, 12 minutes, but it was 1.2 miles.  The winner did it in 8 minutes and kept it down.  The female winner did it in just over 9 minutes and she reversed soon after.

Exactly what I thought when I saw what was being "served".
I did the Krispy Kreme Challenge 2 years ago and this was much tougher on my gut than that fiasco.

Buddy from work kept begging me to do a 5k with him, so I did.  I have another sinus infection, on meds, it was cold and windy this morning.  I felt like ****, my asthma was kicking in and I felt like quitting.  I ended up 5th in my age group and 41st overall.  Winning time was 17:xx so everyone was slow today, lots of people tho.  My time was kinda slow - http://app.strava.com/activities/38008862

4.1 miles.  Once I got over the fact that it was effing cold and my legs finally warmed up it felt pretty good to get out.  Stuck to the mup as it is tree covered and blocked some of the wind. 

http://app.strava.com/activities/38133253

Started off kinda slow (havent run in a week), then by the end of the run I was running just under 9min/mile.  Right now im convinced that running at least once a week is enough to hold what little bit of running fitness I built up.  At least enough to be able to run a few miles (however slow or fast that is)
Title: Re: Did you run today?
Post by: jonesy on January 20, 2013, 04:20:00 PM
Okay. That was brutal. Not because it was the longest run I've done since starting up again this year, but because of the wind. Steady 30mph with gusts to 50 or so. Also, there is pretty much no shelter from it out here in farm country. The last 0.7mi. was straight into the wind. Ouch.

A few people I know are doing a marathon training group with one of the running shops.  They have been doing stuff on the track..sounds like thats what you are doing?
 
There is a guy I know who started running mid october and is already up to 20 mile runs at a 8-8:30 pace.  His 5th or 6th run ever, he did 13 miles in under 2 hours. The dude is crazy and has never run before this.

I did some track work in the fall, then once I got a formal marathon plan, I backed off and  did pretty much all base miles, easy runs for 2 months to build base.  This week the speedwork starts.


It is very easy to get injured running, doing too much or going to fast too soon often leads to injury.  That guy sounds like the exception.  Good for him, that is awesome.

8x600m with 400m recovery.  The 600m were done at 2:21 or 9.5mph on a treadmill.  The last 2 took much concentration as I was getting tired and feared falling and being shot off the treadmill in front of 200 people at the gym.  1 mile wu and wd.

That reminds me of when I went on vacation in New Hampshire when I was a kid.  I was in the hotel gym area and an old Amish guy came in and got on the treadmill.  The guy working in the gym went up to the guy to help him out...he kept wanting to faster.  If he would have let go of the treadmill there likely would have been a hole in the wall.  It was hilarious

Confession time:
I may be in over my head with this whole marathon thing, I've been running 6 days a week the last 3 weeks, 5 days a week before that. The intensity has been pretty high these last 3 weeks and no let up til the taper.  I can barely walk.  My hips, knees and left ankle are killing me.  I've run 2 marathons in 2005, for those I was only running 4 days a week and no real intensity.  This time I am following Hanson's Marathon Method and shooting for a sub 3:20 race.  I have been hitting my target workouts except for Tuesday, but as I said, I can hardly walk, I was awake a lot last night cause of the pain, nothing serious, I think, just real sore.


So...  I am gonna back off a little, maybe run the full 26.2 with no real time goal or drop down and do the 13.1.  Who knows, I'll see how the next few weeks go, at least take another rest day per week.
Title: Re: Did you run today?

WC, I was a little worried about your training program as someone who was not a big runner before.  Unlike cycling and swimming, running is such a ballistic activity, that overuse injuries are common during this type of training regime. 
 
IMO, I'd take a few days off, maybe ride a bit to maintain CV fitness and then diminish your training to 4-5 days/wk.  Your legs NEED the rest.  You've already done a few long runs, so possibly doing ONE 8+mile run/wk, gradually increasing that until you get a single 20mile run before the race. (no later than 2 wks prior) followed by your real taper.

There are many different training programs, this one is kinda intense in the 6days/wk and 3 days of intensity, I was fine until the intensity started, then after the 3rd week my legs are shot.  There is another plan that includes a few days of cross training so I can ride again.  I do enjoy running, but I don't enjoy getting injured.

First race in over 25 years (I was not racing; just look at my pace). Kind of hilly. I think I did a good job of maintaining pace on the hills which is encouraging.

Hey Jonesy! I'm so proud of you!! Running is not an easy thing to pick up the older you get, and you've really stuck with it. You're awesome!!
 
I ran this weekend with J. I always leave first while he's stretching, he said it was harder to catch up to me and pass me this time, I'm glad he noticed I was really pushing myself.Woop Woop!!

I must pass the running thread torch on, running has wrecked havoc on my legs/joints.  I may do it sometimes, but for now I am gonna be back on the bike.  It was fun while it lasted and got me through the cold/crappy weather...


I have a hardly used Garmin Forerunner 410 if anyone is interested, $150 shipped.

I loved it, worked awesome and was absolutely great for running, however, I could really use the money to 1. cover most of the cost for the contour I just purchased or 2. Pay for a new pair of oakley's I want.  I am sure when I run again, and I plan to in the fall, I will wish I never sold it, but the thought of it sitting around doing nothing for a few months makes me cringe.

My hip is still sore, last time I trained/ran a marathon, I was running 4x/wk and I needed to ice my knees and feet after almost every run, the podiatrist said my legs were not cut out to be a runner, that is why I got into cycling.  I thought this time may be different since I am a bit lighter, maybe he was right.

So when you stop running for a while you have to break in your legs/ankles again as if it was the first time you tried minimalist running.

That's good to know. A bit sad I'm learning it now that I can't walk straight anymore.

I took 3 rest days this week, inspired by the crappy weather. I think my ancient legs appreciated it.
 
It took over 10 minutes for my watch to find a signal this morning, so the 1.75 miles or so didn't get recorded (I know the mileage, because nearly everyone has GPS watches at these things). No biggie. That section is just flat city streets.

I don't know how you guys do it.


Did you used to run in HS or something? I have no running base.


Did 2.5mi EASY (to avoid the injury) out of desperation in Taiwan and still, like 3 days later, am very sore.

I never ran in HS, except from a furious dad once and maybe a few times from police. Nothing major though.

I think cycling fitness somewhat translates, not entirely but at least cardio-wise. I feel pretty decent for most of the run(s) I've done lately. First 4 miler (road) a couple weeks ago felt good and ran a pretty good time for first run in well over a year.. then did a 4 mile trail run which was considerably slower, obviously. Then yesterday was 5 mi on road. Hoping that my legs will not be as sore from this one as they were from the 4 miler on road a couple weeks ago. My calves were destroyed for several days after that.

Post by: ygduf on April 18, 2013, 09:59:19 AM
Ahh, yeah. Cardio definitely carries over. I was running 9-ish minute miles, z2 HR, and not really breathing hard.


Next day, BAM, all these muscles I never use on the bike hurt. 3 days later, still sore.


Kind of amazing how ****ty cycling is for muscle balance. I should probably run a couple miles a few times a week just to not be a total ***** in re: bone density and tendon strength.

The soreness was ridiculous after that first 4 miler I did. I expected it to hurt, but it was nearly debilitating about 2-3 days down the road. I agree regarding muscle balance or w/e.  That's kinda what I'm thinking and why I'm incorporating at least a little bit of running into my schedule. It just feels good to do something different sometimes and hopefully it won't take too long for my body to get used to it. Will be nice to have the option to do either (bike or run) depending on weather/time constraints and stuff.

Ran a 5k this morning. First sub-30 minute 5k. Woohoo (still slow). Mrs. jonesy was walking it with Benson, so I trotted back out and walked with them. Nice day for it. Oh yeah, the big drop at the end is where I'm filling a water bowl for Benson and forgot to stop my watch.

The bungee cord thing is kind of a tri thing, but I'm also very anal about my laces staying tight. Bungee cords stay snug the entire run, laces always loosen up.


I'm thinking about using a camelbak on my next long slow run at Draper Lake.  I'm worried about the possible chafing though.


I'm able to get a little shorter shorts now, my inner thigh fat has reduced some and so there is a little less rubbing. I'm super excited about this.


I tried a Honey stinger gu packet on my last lsr and then about 1.5 miles later had a little taste of it when I burped and almost upchucked from the flavor. I don't think those are going to work, I have a couple left I'll wait and see how those go.


EFS is awesome for hot humid weather here in Oklahoma. I highly recomend it if you haven't tried it.


I keep forgetting to mention I'm training for the Route66 marathon.

Ran about a mile, walked a bit, started back up again then my quads felt a little crampy.  Went away quick then 3/4 of a mile or so later quads started feeling a little crampy again so I walked the rest.


Except for the shock to my legs from not running since January, I actually felt fine.

My last two runs were fails. The heat won and I lost. I gave my LSR another try today and I finished it.


I waited till early evening to do it though. I also tried this walking thing. I ran 15 minutes then walked 1 then ran 9 minutes and walked 1 and so on. People are right I really did feel way better at the end of the run. I might adopt it for goodl, we'll see. Let's face it, I'm not in any danger of winning the Route66 Marathon.  :lol:

Had to head out at 0530 this morning thanks to my screwed up schedule this week. Supposed to work tomorrow but because of the promotion I have to take some classes this week and the rest of the week is shot. Looks like I'll be doing a few more 0530 runs.

Congrats on the promotion, I like running early in the am.  I am hoping to do some cx races this fall, will start running 1 or 2 times a week soon...

Title: Re: Did you run today?
Post by: KandK_Dad on August 04, 2013, 12:18:27 AM
if you've never used a set of speedlaces you're really missing out.

I won't run at all without them anymore. if your feet swell or shrink the elastic just moves as compared to tying a knot, staying static,  and then all of the sudden you've got cramps in your legs because your shoe is to tight. I was always cramping in my legs and couldn't figure out why, so I switched and unless I'm setting up a new pair of shoes I can run pain free. Just lace em, attach the clip, and done. Then it's just slip on the shoe like a slipper and out the door. I managed to turn Alex on em a while back.

You can get them in a lot of places, Omega, Dick's, etc for less than $10 a pair, and unless you're really really rough on them they just last forever so when you buy new shoes you move them over.

Went out today with the kids. Big K wanted to ride her new bike while I ran and Lil K wanted to tag along. Simple 5k. Went something like this....


"Daddy, go faster!!!"

Run event this morning. Did pretty well, for me. The section through the woods (most of mile 3) was a bit of a log jam. Single track with spikey hills. Got stuck behind some folks who were walking those.

As part of a race weekend in Eureka Springs, AR they had a 10K today. I did 28mi of the 3/4 RR yesterday before I flatted out and then today gave the 10K (my first) a shot. I probably drank too much last night, but I didn't puke or totally die so that is a good thing. More climbing than I thought.

If we type things out we're more likely to do them, right? I'm buying running shoes this week. Need to do at least a bit before cross season so my body doesn't completely revolt the first time i get off the bike and run. And I think the first couple races are going to have sand, which I've struggled to ride before, so I really need to hit the season with some run fitness.

I don't run with HRM currently - just using the Strava Android App. Wife has a Garmin Forerunner 110 that I bought her last year that she doesn't use ( :( :hammer: ). I am considering running with that some even though it looks like this....

I ran again yesterday morning, I think the edge 800 is not accurate for running when you hold it in your hand, while I am not fast, the 2 times I used it this year my run times were over 10min/mile, I never ran that slow and the distance shown from the same routes I run were less.  I read somewhere, the rocking motion of carrying it can screw up the data...  I am gonna use the strava app on the phone and the 800 and compare...

Yeah try the app and let me know. I've just been using the app, which is annoying to carry my big ass phone around, but better than my touch screen 510 that I'm sure I would touch and eff up mid-run.

I used my 500 before I got my Forerunner.  The edge sucks as a running computer.  It actually auto paused for for a few minutes on a run last fall...I know im slow, but not that slow...
 
The rocking motion would also throw the speed way off

I've noticed this too. It's like your arm swing is messing with the GPS timings. I notice that I'm always fastest at the moment I move my arm up to check my time. I never had an issue with it stopping except when I would walk for warmup, but I just disabled auto-pause and never had an issue again.

I read a Garmin FAQ at one point that said the Edge units wouldn't work for running. That's why I got a Forerunner.

They will as long as you're consistent on pace. I've been using mine for a while although I really would like to have a forerunner if only for the fit as the edge can be bothersome sometimes. If the 10 would do HRM I'd probably snatch one up right now, I just hate to have to spend another $50 for the 110 just for that function.

I had the 110 last year when I was actually running a lot, it was nice, but I sold it to RU.  This year I don't plan on doing any real structured running.  At work we have a new vitality program which you get points for healthy activities.  You can sync garmin connect with it, so I plan to run with the Edge 800 to get vitality points and use the phone's strava app for strava-ing.  Might try to run tomorrow, hope my new shoes come today.

I think I am going to do longer than 1 mile here soon when I am running.  I feel like I might be able to do at least 2 miles, if not more, nonstop..I just don't want to rush back to it too fast

Yeah, if you haven't run in a while you better take your time to ease in, I still have some small ankle pain here and there when running and I've been running for 2-3 weeks. I usually just stop, shake my ankle do some warm up/rotation and I'm fine to go. But yeah, our cardio is top notch at this point and we're tempted to do a lot but it's really easy to get injured since our muscles/bones aren't yet ready for this especially after a long break.

Ran 4mi yesterday morning.

Apparently 4mi is about all I do. That and 5k's. I just get bored running solo more than 4mi I guess? At 4mi I am just like "whew okay I can quit now..". I probably need to find a running partner if I ever want to get in more miles than that at a time.

2.3 miles today.


Came across the cutest dog it was white and fluffy and old and fat and super nice. It wanted to be my best friend. I checked his collar and took him home, the stupid lawn guy let him out at didn't do anything about it. He was still there working on the lawn, just when I was getting ready to chew his ass out the owner finally answered his door. The old guy was happy to get Barney back.


Garmin cradle is dry and still effed. They are about $20 on ebay.

Last run of the city series (http://www.syracuse.ny.us/parks/specialeventssyrathon.html). Nice fall day; low 40s. It was a good run.
 
Ran the second half with a Marine/NYS Trooper. He grabbed some young guy that was walking a hill (the kid looked like he was in better running-shape than us) and we paced him to the finish.

Fun isn't it?  When I was foolish last winter and started training for another marathon, everything was good until I started running ~10 miles at a clip, then it just did too much damage.  My buddy, world class CX guru, was once a long distance runner in college, he said now he never runs more than 6 miles, it just does too much damage to him.

Yeah I probably won't do that many miles at a time again. I think 5-6 miles is a good amount.

Visiting my old stomping grounds. So, I went out to run the old high school XC course. The course is different now (HS was 30 years ago), but I like the new course and it was a nice day for it. 65 and slightly overcast.

3 miles yesterday, group run.  10:00 pace...felt the last few days on the trainer..plus I overdressed.  Was sort of a tough one, I was going to go another half a loop to start to add some distance, but just didnt feel like it when I was done with the first loop.  42 and rain is surprisingly easy to overdress for.
 
4 mile prediciton run on Sunday morning
Title: Re: Did you run today?

Yeah 42 is one of those: it depends on the wind, humidity, and sun temps.

5k yesterday.  It kinda sucked.  It was a prediciton run..so I wrote down 29 minutes.
 
It was 14 degrees when I left to go to the run, 19 when I started...never got any warmer.  19 degrees sucks, I never really warmed up and it ended up being the slowest 5k I have done (not saying im some speedy runner or anything..)

Walked some, ran a mile..walked some more, ran a mile..walk some more, ran a mile, then ran another half mile.  Managed to dress perfect (23 degrees)

I got in a couple of miles worth of intervals with Benson. We'd run flat out for 50 yards or so at a time, until Benson decided to stop and chew on a corn stalk.
 
No Strava report, no running-specific gear, no snowshoes. Just a pair of heavy insulated work boots and street clothes. Fun.

I ran on thursday and abour 2.2 miles in both of my calves/lower legs tightened up pretty bad..tried stretching but they were pretty sore Friday.  I had signed up to run a 5k on Saturday but because my legs hurt I decided just to show up and walk.
 
I walked 1 mile, went in because it was too damned cold to walk (so i technically didnt finish), and still got 3rd in my age group in the 5k.  That was chip timed.  That I never crossed the finish line for.

I forgot to post this yesterday:


3 miles around the park, didn't have to stop on any of the hills. My legs felt better, my stride is still small but I was able to move my feet a little faster. I pushed myself a little too hard for the first mile, had to slow down for a bit so my heart could catch up. The weird thing is I wasn't breathing hard, but my heart was going nuts. I wonder if it would have helped to breath a little faster even though there was no pressure in my lungs to do so.

Little faster than last time, about .8 to .5mph faster on the intervals, but I could only do 7 instead of 10. Hopefully, I can get it up to 10 next time and then bump the speed up again.

Great job Wylde, Jonesy, and WC!




I was finally  able to jog for 30 minutes straight on the treadmill at a 7% incline. Took forever to get there but I finally did it. I had to knock the incline down from 8% because I noticed my lower back was not appreciating it too much. I've been doing lots of stretches and have started doing yoga daily for the last 3 weeks and it's knocking out the lower back issues slowly but surely. Running on an incline doesn't make me any faster though, it just makes it easier for me to run up a hill outside. My treadmill only goes up to a 10% incline, we are contemplating a timeline for when we want to upgrade the treadmill for one that goes up to a 15% incline. It also burns a more calories faster so I don't have to spend as much time on the dreadmill.  My next goal is 10% obviously, I've got no timeline on that though.

I've also completely switched over to my vibrams from running shoes with inserts. No issues this time, there was a little calf stiffness and soreness and first but it was very minimal when compared to my attempt a couple years ago.

Whatever it was that was wrong seems to be gone. Ran yesterday and my foot is fine, never hurt during the run and is fine this morning.


Wasnt planning on it before I started, but once I got going I figured I would try for a nonstop run.  2.2 miles @ 10:33/mile.  The last few times out I felt like I could have gone longer on each of the "on" parts but held myself back.  Ive been wanting to ease back into this because after PR'ing a 5k in December my calves hated me for a while and I stopped.

Have you tried Brandywine Creek State Park? Fun mix of hills, wooded trails and open areas. It has a marked cross country course (approx. 5k) that my old HS uses.

After PT on Thursday I headed out to the Thursday Group run.  First ~3 mile run without walk breaks since the last 5k that ultimately made me stop running last year.


http://www.strava.com/activities/193255211


The first half mile or so may or may not have been influenced by the hot runner chicks that show up to this.  :D ...then I realized there was no way to keep up that pace and settled into an easier for me pace so I knew I could do the 3 miles without having to walk.


Yesterday, although the weather was great for riding (55, mostly sunny, just a little breezy) I woke up and my hip was a little sore.  Killed all motivation to get on the bike..which SUCKS.  So I "ran".

The weather is getting better and I've started running again and hope to be in the saddle on the road or trainer soon.

I stopped in chat yesterday and talked with umd for a quick bit. Hoping to drop in from time to time or daily when I get the chance.

Sorry you had some **** to deal with, glad it's behind you now.  I don't have much time for chat during the day and it's usually just umd in there, but I drop in when I get a minute or 2 at work.

Lap 2, 40 minutes at 10:23/mile. 


My friend is trying to talk me into doing a half the first or second weekend in November (don't remember exactly when it is).  Running is dumb...and a half marathon sounds ultra dumb.

IMO, you don't run enough to run a half marathon, you will need to increase your mileage too fast and you will get injured.  What are full marathons  :P

I ordered these last night:

8% :wha: nice work Makel.  And I hope you got a piece of that settlement with the vibrams :P   Tuesday I made an effort to run on the balls of my feet for the first mile, my calves are still killing me.

This could be...  years ago when I started running, I had what I would describe as a cramp in my foot and I would have my wife massage it each night, after a week or so I went to the doc, stress fracture :(


Tuesday's run - http://www.strava.com/activities/188752843
Today's slow run with aching calves - http://www.strava.com/activities/189690705

I briefly read about that and while I now no longer remember what it was about I do remember that I thought it was silly or didn't agree with it and would not put a claim in.

I agree with WC, but as long as you don't do it for speed you might be okay. Running will seriously mess you up if you overtrain on it. You could always run walk there is no shame in that a half marathon is still quite an accomplishment.

If you are going to be an over achiever like WC and train for it anyways, I highly recommend yoga for runners EVERYDAY, really spensive shoes, and compression socks.

Was going to run today..but the weather tomorrow made me change my mind and I rode instead.  Going to run tomorrow.


I went to one of the local running stores and they were having a huge tent sale.  Went there on the off chance my size and width shoe would be there cheap.  Of course it wasnt...so I went in and they ordered them.. 


I don't know whats more dumb.  Running..or needing to order a new pair of running shoes?

Went up to the group run...so many hot chicks run.  Need to get them on the bike  :D




Now I don't think my hip likes running...had little "pings" of pain start up at about ~2 miles in and last until the end of the run.  Super frustrating.

IME there are way more hotter chics that run vs cycling.


As I said, you should take a few weeks off running and cycling to let your hip heal.

And hotter.  I'd say the ratio of hot to not is higher, of the two running groups I've run with, I'd say at least half are pretty good looking.  I've seen probably a total of 3 good looking women I've ridden with, two I can think of and I am sure there might be another.  And I've seen Erica Allar at some races, she's hot. 


So that means there were more attractive women on the last group run, then every ride combined + Erica Allar.  Y, you live in California, there is probably more attractive cyclists out there.

A woman arrived 2 seconds after me, we chatted for a minute then she asked if I wanted to run with her, I did.  She was fast, I was hurting, she was talking the whole time, I was breathing heavy, I was humbled.  I feel absolutely exhausted right now, it was a good start to the day - http://www.strava.com/activities/205553262 (http://www.strava.com/activities/205553262)

Almost did a full second loop, but cut out the roundabout.  Once my breathing got under control (like 25 minutes in) it actually wasnt that bad.  I blame that on running the first half mile or so too fast trying to keep up with the hot runner chicks.

I ran today, was all set to ride but it started raining and since I must limit my risks, I decided it was best if I did not venture out in slippery conditions.  I was running off and on over the winter, in the beginning of april I hurt my hip, probably from going to fast and too long, too soon, so after weeks of stretching and strengthening my hip adductors, I started back, treadmill first and slow, like 9:40 - 10:00 min miles.  Today I ran outside, 4.1 miles, 9:48 min pace.  I felt good, but I wish I was able to ride my bike.

I can't do long runs really, 6 is my max or I set of a chronic fatigue fit, but I have been able to get my 4.5 mile time down to a just under 9 min per mile pace.... on the treadmill... holding on for dear life. I've gotten my 2 mile run time to just under an 8 min per mile pace... on the treadmill... holding on for dear life.  When I run on the road I don't time myself, I live in ignorant bliss.


Tomorrow I run in in the run lucky 5k. I went and picked up my packet today and I discoverd that my friend has been putting my name on the T-shirts in the "In Honor of:" section.
