Thread: Any runners here?

  1. #1

    Any runners here?

    I have been running for around 6 months and doing my first marathon in september. I also have a half coming up in 4 weeks which I am undertrained for due to shin splints.

    Anyone else a runner here?

    Thanks.

    Used to be a runner back in High school, I did Track and Cross Country. Now I no longer run due to work and school.

    @ GameOver; Wow, running a marathon after 1 year of running

    Last year I started running, but with interruptions due to medical reasons. Restarted earlier this year and currently I'm running 3-4 times a week for about 30-35 minutes each and slowly increasing the running time.

    I have actually been running on and off for 2 years but have only become consistent in the last 6 months (i.e. > 5 times per week). It has taken me a while but am fit enough to run 5-10km easily enough. I just want to get through the half marathon and am not looking to get a fast time. I am using Hal Higdon's 18 week marathon training plan which is luckily the time between my half and full marathon.

    I've always been an athlete since young. But last running I did was in 2007 - a 10km run. Did badly and didn't finish the race at all! Haha.

    I hope to start training again and participate in the same race at the end of this year.

    Good luck with the half marathon and thanks for the tip GameOver, I bookmarked Hal Higdon's site, his training programs look interesting.

    Thanks, I will definitely post here with my results. Hal Higdon also has some great books on marathon running if you ever decide to do one.

    Thanks LoKo for the link. I am couch potato and i definitely needed it..

    I tried to run few months back but got a knee ache. The doc said I have been living a sedentary lifestyle and this resulted in a cartilage degeneration..he said i should start from low intensity walking and then move up..which will take a lot of weeks.

    You should start running. At first you will hate it (I know from experience ) but then you will get addicted and do something crazy and register for a marathon

    I didn't like it in the beginning too. When I first started running, there wasn't a plan, except that I decided to run a few times a week until exhaustion . That didn't work until I got a schedule.
    What really motivates to keep going is that I not only see it as an investment in health but also in time (more energy means more things that can be done) and time is money Before, I found it just a waste of time
