800m dang near killed me.
So I've been trying to run at least two miles every weekday for an upcoming soccer season and I'm wondering if it's more effective to run on a track or to run on grass. Wasn't sure since tracks are made for running but I'll be playing on grass.
started a fire fighting course this week, gonna see if i can destroy everyone else at running
Done the Severn Bridge half marathon earlier on today (UK)
In 2 hours 13 mins, my first half marathon event!
I started running today, and I'm going to keep at it every day from now on (except break days when my body is recovering obviously). I used to do short runs for warm ups before I was injured, but now that I am better, I'd like to spend more time running.
My first test run was 1km, and ran as fast as I could keep it up for the whole time.
After cooling down, I did the same thing, but aiming for 2km. I had to stop at 1.1km, walked 250m, then was able to run the last 650m.
My short term goal for running is to be able to do 3.2 km without stopping. That way I can run my local dojo. It would be a nice warm up, and I'll be going there 8 times a week.
Going to start doing morning runs, fucked my leg though so I could only do it once, but I made it all the way pretty easily. Only question is what is a good quick snack to have considering I'm basically waking up having a drink and going, got hungry as fuck coming back.
I've been running for a long time and i've never had any problems whatsoever before. But recently i've started to get really sore around my shinbone. It usually comes when i've been running a couple of times per week and it'll stay sore and uncomfortable until I stop running for a couple of days.
Any idea of what it might be? I've thought about shin splints but aren't those usually acompanied by swelling? Any of you guys have experience with this? If anything i do have tendency to tense up in my legs when i'm running and i've felt better in my shin if i don't tense up too much. However the soreness will stay there it's just not as bad.
ran 2 miles in 13:31 yesterday, fitness has slipped a good way
Does anyone do weight training to supplement their running? I'm in a bit of a dilemma where I don't want to skip leg day, but at the same time, I don't want to have tight muscles (especially hamstrings) when I'm working on technique during practice.
Ecstatic right now. Decided last Monday that I was tired of being unfit, and I missed the days when I was really healthy and didn't get out of breath quickly.
Started last Monday being able to do a mile of on / off jogging in about 15 minutes, and then I'd be shattered and walk another .5 miles and that was it (a majority of the run was all walking, sadly). Today, I jogged my first ever mile nonstop, and I did it in 10mins 6 seconds. Nothing to brag about, but I'm so happy with that. Then I hit the 2 mile mark today as well, which blew my mind. The last few times I've jogged, it's been an absolute slog to get to 1.5 miles, let alone 2. But I did it today without even realising.
Total time was 22 mins, really proud that I've actually stuck to the routine and not pussied out of a single jog. Seeing my own progress first hand is really motivational, and I can't wait to get back out there on Wednesday.
I've run 2-4 miles (a few hours before) on leg day the last month or so and it hasn't been a problem for me. Two days later, the soreness is crazy though.
I'm not sure if that distance is long or short to you though. What I've been doing is just doing a shorter-than-normal run on leg days.
