Just a general thread about running. How's your running going? What are you training for? Did you get new shoes? Sporting an injury Etc....

Maybe it can be pinned?

Obviously not that great in comparison, but I've managed to keep running 3 times a week since September last year. I'm pretty happy with this I've gotta say. Started running for weight loss and heart health. Haven't lost any weight - I'm still ~120kg post COVID - but my heart health has improved a lot.

Side note - if I was to compete against the 4 minute mile record holder, they would beat me by almost exactly 4 minutes...haha

A little bit chilly, but at least it's sunny out.

What a sad day for the world of running and the world in general! He had so much potential ahead of him. Holding the world record marathon and being only 24! I’d have loved to see what greatness he would have achieved. RIP

Running distance over time. I still can't run 5k without walking about 20% of the way.

And it's not going fast either, but I'm still proud of the progress. The data is keeping me going.

EDIT: Thanks for the support! The legs still don't want to do, what I want them to. But they will learn, who's the boss eventually.

O'Keeffe had a incredible run.

What's all over her bib? Appears somewhere in the last quarter of her run.

Congratulations on becoming an Olympian representing the USA!

I’m trying to get into streak running, but when I get hit with a day that has terrible weather (ice rain, smoke from Canada being on fire, etc) I am unsure what to do. And I don’t own a treadmill or have a gym membership. Do you just have very specific gear for those days or what? Any motivation tips and gear tips?

Interested what people (mostly those with watches) do with their HR metrics, and how they use it to plan their exercises or their pace.

What is your rest HR? What is your maximum? What range are you typically in during exercise? What do you consider healthy? How do you use HR to determine your pace or what exercises to do? Do you have any advice with respect to this topic? Or do you think measuring HR is pure nonsense and we should not bother doing so at all?

I noticed my rest HR is at 50. My runs are mostly at 165-170ish averaged (aged 28), which seems to be fairly high. My last run (a bit faster than usual) had 24 minutes between 158-176 and 18mins higher than 176, at the end I peaked at 192 for an end sprint.

Trying to see if anyone has a routine for someone totally new to running. I'm a big fan of "this week do this, build up to do this, etc..." I'm in my thirties and from a young age until I was about 20 I had severe asthma. I've never been good at running. Asthma doesn't bother me anymore but I'm needing something to do while traveling for work. I work construction all across the state and come home on the weekends.

If anyone has some ideas that would be great. When I do stuff I tend to over do it then it then it's hard to make myself go out again.

I'm using a watch face that shows my step count at the top, and a progress bar representing my progress towards my step goal at the bottom. It's a default-available watch face on my Forerunner 935, not one I downloaded from anywhere.

At the top, above the step count, often appears a red bar, but I haven't figured out what it actually means. Does anyone know?

I'm looking to qualify for boston (M41, 3:10 for my age group)

Current PR is 3:20

Is having a coach worth my money and their time? I have no delusions of being an elite runner. Is coaching a good tool for my current level?

Props to everyone getting in their daily miles or more for another year!

For me it’s year 4! 🎉 Wasn’t a great running year though, didn’t hit 1000 miles. But there were a few fun runs including the Dam tot Damloop, a Mud Masters event and a local event in the middle of a heat wave.

For the curious, see e.g. https://www.runeveryday.com/

I just wanted to share that today I ran a 7:38 mile. This isn't huge, this isn't a record. But for me it's the first sub 8 minute mile I have ran in about a decade and I feel fucking PUMPED.

Anyone who's out there struggling to meet what they used to be able to do easily, it's okay. We all feel that at one point or another. What matters is setting goals and working to get there no matter how long it takes.

Torn Hamstring (lemmy.world)
submitted 2 months ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

I'm scheduled for a half marathon in 5 weeks. I KNEW I probably should not have deadlifted before my sprint workout. I didn't wake up this morning to run like I should have, so I lifted weights before my running workout. During my sprints, I felt and heard a pop. I immediately felt pain and hobbles to a stop. Fortunately I was in front of my house. I couldn't bend over to untie my shoes and get them off. Luckily my wife was home.

I know this isn't a medical forum and I'm not seeking medical advice, I'm already in contact with my doctor, but I'd like some opinions and feedback (or questions) from others that have experienced the same. Chances of running in 5 weeks? 😢😢 If it was completely torn, I was feel and see a ball of muscle rolled up right?

Details in the post. But I created the illusive, unofficial 18/63 full marathon training plan, which splits the difference between the 18/55 and the 18/55-70 plan. Feedback appreciated.

Fifth time is the charm for me, but finally got a buckle at Devil Dog this weekend. Feeling pretty sore and limping around today, but overall very pleased that I managed to avoid another DNF!

Anything over 9 miles or so and my chest gets a gnarly rash right in the middle of my chest where my HRM sits. I put a decent amount of body glide, and no change.

Anyone have a way to combat this?

It's been a while since this has happened, but I've been running pretty regularly lately and the calluses are building back up on my feet, and then the skin split on the back of one of my heels.

I just throw a Band-Aid on it usually, but do you guys regularly use lotion on your feet or maybe just on your heels to avoid dry or cracked skin on your feet, or do you just throw tape or a band-aid on it as well?

Quick clarification, I do run on the balls of my feet so I'm guessing this is from the walking I regularly do every day as well, rather than specifically caused by my running, since my heels don't often at the ground, but I'm just curious what other people do about cracked heels if they get them.

I didn't know there was all that much difference in shoe foams.

I was laughing too hard from that to listen to the rest of the story, so I have no idea what's happening in Guatemala.
