:/ I hope you're better now.

 

My whole day was sort of ruined because I didn't do as well as I'd hoped. I ate two slices of bread before I went running after around 20 minutes I felt this side stitch-like pain in my stomach and I had to stop running and walk the rest of the way home. Lately I've been hungry all the time despite also eating all the time, it's hard to time my runs... On one hand I don't want to ever feel that pain and disappointment of a failed run, but on the other, I don't want to faint halfway through 9k either...

Turned up the hill and went back home. So, at least I gave it an effort. At least I got my shirt. And now I'm gonna shower and march in the parade. THAT, I can handle...

 

 

I'm sorry you didn't finish. There will be other races. I hope you feel better soon.

Also in knee news, my runnings taken a hit as my right knee keeps getting a pain in it after 20 mins of running. It's highly frustrating.

Random question:  How often do you guys work cross-training into your running routine?  What do you do?  How often?

A normal running week (before my injury):

 

M - Speed training

T-  One hour mixed PT session ie. hand weights, kettle bells, arms, abs, boxing

W - Hill/stair and/or running specific strength training

T - Half hour upper body PT session

F - 1 hour+ run

S - Group fitness class

S - Rest day

 

*All outside

 

Since my injury:

 

M - Physio massage session & 10 minutes stationary bike

T - One hour mixed PT session modified as I can't do any leg work

W - Physio reformer session & 10 minutes stationary bike

T - Half hour upper body PT session

F - 10 minute stationary bike

S - 10 minute stationary bike

S - 10 minute stationary bike

 

*Tuesday and Thursday outside the rest inside

 

Part of the reason for my injury is that I lack leg strength. I am hoping to follow somethiing like this after I have fully recovered from my op:

 

M - Speed training (AM) plus lower body weight training (PM)

T-  One hour mixed PT session ie. hand weights, kettle bells, arms, abs, boxing plus a half hour easy run (PM)

W - Hill/stair and/or running specific strength training (PM)

T - Half hour upper body PT session (AM) plus lower body weight training (PM)

F - 1 hour run (AM) and/or 1 hour cycle (PM)

S - Group fitness class until I am able to run over 10km and then it will be and/or long run (AM)

S - Rest day

 

*Lower body strength inside the rest outside

 

HTH

You are getting some excellent runs in Persephone. Are you training for an event?

Any idea what it might be? Have you seen a doctor?

Not specifically. Last summer I was up to half marathon distance (I'd like to do a marathon someday). But I had some issues at school where I had to stop running for a while, so I'm working my way back up. So excited to be running again!

Thanks Cyclone T.

 

I do weightlift already.  I find that helps prevent my knee problems.  I think I'm going to start incorporating cycling into my routine during the week.  THat way I can still work my muscles but in a way that has a little less impact on the joints... 

 

I hope your knee is feeling better.

I run at least twice a week one's 1hour and a half in the week end and an other time around 50minutes. I like running in the parks.

I run because it allows me to get relax, feel well and then you can practice it when you want, when you are available. you do not need to respects hours as in fitness centre.

 

and then obviously it is free.

I saw the surgeon and he scheduled me in for surgery 4 days later which was last Friday. It was more complicated than first thought with a 2cm full thickness ulcer in my cartilage. They cut around it and then drilled holes to cause a hemorrhage which will harden and become cartilage like. He also fixed the plica and tidied up the rest of the knee.

 

2 weeks only stretching then light cycling and strength work with particular emphasis on hamstrings, calves and abs. No running for 3 months shocked.gif as any high impact exercise will cause the hemorrhage to dislodge and take me back to square 1.

 

It is going to be a very long quarter sad.gif

where do you come from? here in toronto it is very hot, but for example I go for the running early in the morning or around 6:30pm and I run in the shadow and in parks where there are a lot of trees.

but it is true than we have to avoid running the day between 10 am and 5pm at least. sometimes I see runners under the sun at 2pm while there is 34 degres!!!!!!!!! it is crazy!!!! it can be dangerous for our body. then there is the risk of desydratation

East coast of the USA.  Yesterday it FINALLY cooled off (~87F --  ~31C) but the temps had been into the 100s previously.  I can actually deal with that a bit, but the humidity wouldn't let up, which meant even running after the sun went down was just downright uncomfortable.  And I've lived somewhere on the humid east coast my whole life, so I can usually deal, but the heatwave of the past few weeks had been brutal.

it you are used with humidity I think it can be fine, however it you begin to feel awful you have to stop running at once! we do not have to take any risks and we have to listen to our body. Here in Toronto it is a little bit less warm that in your place, but I pay attention cause I am not use to the humidity.

It's 8:30AM right now and I wanna go running so badly... but at the same time I don't. :/

It's so muggy outside, and I just don't feel like it. And the treadmill downstairs is old, creepy, and dark. Ughhh

it you don"t feel like running, don't go, i do not think it worth forcing one's self to run. You may be tired or just no wish to run, it can happens. listen to your body
