vape it brotha
[QUOTE=kaskade700;45467492]We skipped the run today to go to the beach instead(Which I'm willing to deem as exercise) thanks for the dedication remark, though it's not true. me and the Guy I run with have both spend between 6 and 9 month in the army and concluded that the best motivation we're ever gonna have is peer pressure :v: Though I'm interested in some breakfast ideas that will be more pleasant to puke up, or maybe one that won't want to get up at all. Also believe me when I say the smoking is an ongoing battle, I beat alcohol into the dirt which I actually found worthwhile and fun while cigarettes are just beyond pointless yet I always come crawling back, they really got me by the balls.[/QUOTE] Well, whether it's peer pressure or not, you seem ready to get in shape. Better breakfasts? Nothing with dairy if you don't want to vomit rancid milk. Nothing too heavy/sugary or it'll want to come up easier. If you can, run at least an hour after eating. Getting stitches can be beaten by stretching/sit-ups before a run, proper running technique/breathing during a run, and proper cool-downs after a run. And since the idea is to get your lungs in shape, Quincy is correct, vaping should be better for your health in the long run. Also, try this if you can: while running with your friends, try to hold a conversation with them. Talking while running stresses your lungs to a good level.

No side stitch, a runner's high, no nausea. You are on your way. Post some times if you can.

Post some times if you can.[/QUOTE] I don't really know what to post :v: Except that I have a new found hatred for people not picking up dog shit, having to avoid the same shit 5 times gets kind of annoying, and I will have to avoid it for atleast another month unless I relocate the route or relocate the shit(Which won't happen)
Yeah, they allow horses on the paths I use when I cycle and run, the owners don't clear up shite so you just got to look disgusted at them every time you see one..
how do i get rid of shin splints?
[QUOTE=sp00ks;45500771]how do i get rid of shin splints?[/QUOTE] Cut back on running, and try and run on softer surfaces (grass, loose dirt, etc.) Ice and stretch and if they get worse you might have to stop running for a few days all together.
[QUOTE=sp00ks;45500771]how do i get rid of shin splints?[/QUOTE] Strengthen the muscles. Best exercise I find is if you're sitting on a chair, start tapping your toes making sure the ball of the foot goes as high as you can bring it while your heel stays on the ground.
I went for my first run tonight since March and I've lost so much fitness. I was able to run for 25 minutes with only a few minutes rest and tonight I had to do 1 minute runs with 30 secs walking and was only able to complete 13 minutes. Feels bad man

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.

If you don't want to be bored out of your mind, find a route to run on the roads, or on a trail, or in a park if you live in a city.
[QUOTE=Funion;45216468]so I started running last thursday and I've been doing 2 miles every day since then on thursday my time was 30:35 and today (wednesday) I did 22:45. Going to keep pressing on harder until I can get under 14 minutes[/QUOTE] Decided to do it once every other day now because of how much it destroyed me to go every day. My best time is now 18:36 started a fire fighting course this week, gonna see if i can destroy everyone else at running
just about 3 years and around 5000 miles, my nike shoes finally broke.. I would definitely buy them again. [thumb]http://i.imgur.com/q7KfDio.jpg[/thumb] also about 50 squash games in them

[QUOTE=The Worm;45577663]If you don't want to be bored out of your mind, find a route to run on the roads, or on a trail, or in a park if you live in a city.[/QUOTE] Absolutely agree. My daily route is about 6 miles combined walking and running, it takes me about an hour and fifteen minutes. My backup for shitty/cold/unbearably hot weather is an exercise bike in the basement. Even with my laptop and/or TV, that same hour fifteen on the bike seems like it takes twice as long as running my route with no electronics at all. Time moves so much faster when you're actually covering distance, and you're measuring progress by landmarks passed instead of numbers on your watch.
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.

[QUOTE=The Worm;45970423]Smoothie Banana Cereal (dry) / Cereal Bar Eggs on Toast works for me, but I've got a pretty strong stomach[/QUOTE] Sounds good thanks, tho could you recommend a brand of smoothie want to avoid sugary crap.
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.

Have you tried running and doing leg day on the same day? Or are you just assuming your muscles will be tight? 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.
