Default OT Runners/Joggers/Multisport Thread

Thought I might start one up for anybody who runs/jogs, or are interested in starting.
2011 Title Edit: Triathletes/duathletes/swimmers/cyclists etc. welcome!

Feel free to use this thread as a daily log. Post up your goals/times, discuss training, ask for advice etc.

Happy running!


Me/my goals: I used to sprint in track, so I'm new to long distances. I've been running 25 mpw (hope to increase it, contingent on my knees). Running a 5k in a month, and my first half-marathon in three months.

Today: 4 mile hard tempo (90% max heart rate)

4 miles at 90% is brutal.

My goal: Long Beach Marathon, this year.

It took me awhile to get to 4 mile tempos.. I do about one tempo run a week, and the rest are about 70%.

And nice, I'm doing the Long Beach half-marathon this year. How are you training for it?

I run at least 5 times a week. 2 miles or more.

Ran 2 miles last night in just over 12 minutes.(Last Army Physical Fitness Test/11:32)

I usually hit the stair machine in the GYM a few times a week for 30 min.

Twice a week I'll do squats, leg press, calf raises....

I also play a lot of Basketball...

I usually run 4-5 miles, five times/week depending on the weather. I ran 9 miles on Saturday, the weather was so nice I didn't want to stop.

Does anyone suffer from shin splints? What do you do for them? I've tried everything from rest to ice to Advil but can't seem to kick them. I can only manage to run twice a week--any more is too painful.

I usually sit with my knees on the ground, with my toes facing outward and I place all my weight on the back of my calfs. I do this for about 5 minutes. The more you do it, the better it feels.


Also, make sure you are using the proper shoes. And make sure your shoes are not too old.

I read this book and followed its program:

I used it to run the Long Beach half last year.

do what vectors2f said, or find a curb and put your toes on it, and your heels on the street to stretch out your calves. It's an indirect method, but it worked for me freshman year.

I'll have to check it out. Do you have any tips for running the half, and also for Long beach? I hear it's a bit crowded. ?

Ran a 3 mile the other day in 25'03. Its only the 2nd 3 mile run I have ever done and the 5th run I have done since I started running 3 weeks ago. At around mile two right at the top of this staircase I found a $5 bill. No joke!!1

I ran a 4-miler earlier this year. Doing a 10K next month and then taking part in a marathon relay in October (?).

My training is really sporadic. I can do one full week of great training and then I'm lazy for a week. This doesn't help.

The longest distance I have done is a half-marathon. My knees were actually killing me near the end (never happens). The pain went away with many pints of beer that evening.

In the summer, I run anywhere from 10-20 miles a week. (I hate running in the heat and humidity). I ramp up to a more consistent 20-25 miles a week in Fall/Winter.

I'm a total Clydesdale though -- pretty slow, but consistent. Last night I did a 10K at 8:40/mile pace.

My best "distance" time: Charlottesville 10-miler in 74 minutes flat.

Longest distance: Marine Corps Marathon in 4:05:**

So I just ran 3.5 miles in about 23:00 or so. Nice slow pace, and i finished it off with another mile walking. I want to start running about 22-26 miles a week.



And I found some helpful shin-splint information from here... There is s a few exercises on there as well.

As with most half/full marathon's, the race is crowded during the beginning and will space out during the first couple of miles. You'll have enough space by mile 3. I actually like running in a crowd. It's sort of a motivational factor.

I started distance running this year with my major highlight of finishing my first 20K in just over two hours.

I will do my first half-marathon this fall and will begin training in August.

Back in HS I was a Cross Country runner, and I got hurt playing basketball. I broke my navicular bone 2 times in a row. I was never the same after that. I knocked the chick up at a very young age, and gained a bunch of weight. Since then, I have been plagued with foot injuries. I broke my foot again last Xmas and I actually took the time to let it heal(physical therapy).


This is my first real attempt to get back into the awesome X country shape I used to be in... I am starting to feel like I am in that same shape again.

I like how you knocked some girl up and gained weight. Glad to see you finally got rid of the baby weight.

I went from 165, to about 215. Now I am 175. I should be back into my old trim soon.


And I don't know if you have kids or not, but be careful! You always somehow find yourself eating when she is eating.. By the time I realized WTF had happened, it was too late. I was a fat-ass..

And thanks, I'm glad too..

This isn't too bad for a beginner. You have only been running for 3 weeks. IMO, I think you are doing well. Don't let my time fool you, I'm in the military. I am just now getting back in it for recreation. And the physical benefits too.
