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
