Runner Thread (All About Running)
This is a thread to join all the runners together. I just started training for a 1/2 marathon at the beginning of the year. Who else out there is training for a run? Lets share tips and also just keep each other motivated!

Great thread topic! I actually headed back to the gym in December for the first time in a long time and have been going every weekday since. If I can muster up the strength, I'm looking at running a half marathon during Labor Day Weekend of this year, and then gearing up for a marathon in 2011 (keeps fingers and shoelaces crossed).

In terms of running, I'm staying indoors (weather) and have started doing intervals on the treadmill. I ran a 10K nearly 2 years ago. And need to get my butt in gear. When it warms up, I'll probably look to treadmill it in the a.m. and then run outside in the evenings.

4 half marathons down, looking forward to running a full in the spring, and a half not long after.

I used to run - I feel that it damages the knees if you are not careful

I had a great run last Wednesday and Thursday. I find that if I run consistently that I continue to improve. I try to run 3-4 times a week. Is anyone else trying to stick to a strict running routine? I would love to have someone on here that I can report to and that can hold me accountable and vice versa...

In jan '09 I decided to step it up and start running after having been a powerwalker for about 6 years. I sued the couch to 5k podcast to get into it. I probably ran about every second day for about 25-30 mins depending on my energy levels. Although, I generally can't run the whole time in one go, as I have bad knees and I am suited to sprinting, not long distance.

In late December '09, I decided to step it up again and I have started running with 1kg weights. It's bloody hard, I can tell you! But hopefully, it will be rewarding in toning my arms, burning more kjs and increasing fitness.

I just downloaded this app (Couch to 5K) and tried it for the first time today. It's a great way of getting back into running if you've let yourself become insanely unfit like I have. There are tons of positive reviews for this app on itunes and I feel like it's gonna work really well for me. I'm trying 3x a week just to see how it goes, maybe more if I can fit it in with everything else once I can run the 5k without walking intervals
Good luck everyone on your goals and well done for setting yourself challenges

Good news fellow runners: Research is showing that running doesn't damage knees; it may even make them stronger and less prone to arthritis!

Personally, I'm currently doing one-minute interval training. Just got a new pair of Mizunos that I love

That's good. I didn't think it would damage the knees to be honest.

Every other morning workout, I do hill intervals at varying inclines or speed intervals (jog: 4.0 mph, run: 5.0-6.0 mph). 20 minutes of it is sufficient.

good job to all runners

ive been a runner my entire life,
competed in my first marathon at 18 to a 2.46 time
compete regularly in 5 and 10k runs

i love to do a fast pace run every day, usually around 10k distance with some hill intervals, the bigger the challenge the better the after effects.

tip to everybody : drink 1L of coconut water per day and you will see your run improve significantly

also i have always run in asics, either the DS trainer for racing and the gel nimbus for training

^ asics are my favourite !

I love running, I am more about easy running, I don´t really like fast running but easy running from 1hour to 1 and half hour is just perfect start for the day!

I just started running again last week,but have to make sure it's on grass because asphalt/cement is so horrible for your joints.I take breaks in the middle to stretch and gulp water.Have to make sure not to eat a banana more than 40 minutes before or else...I've been sleeping so much better :-)
I love running,especially when it's really windy like it has been lately.
