Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
I usually run on a regular basis when spring time hits until the first snow comes along. In the winter its a little less, I just dislike running treadmills. Its incredible boring.
Probably gonna be atleast 1 month before I can start running regulary again. Hopefully the snow is gone by then.
At best ive gotten 42 minutes in 6 miles, a course that varies a lot from asfalt to soft surface in the woods, uphill and downhill. I aim to be under 40 minutes this summer. As long as my knee´s hold up. If they are not good the first 1 mile, then I will lose all motivation to run the rest of the way.
But ive been way too injury prone as of late. Knee´s, right shoulder and left wrist have not been my friends.
I tried half a marathon 2 summers ago. Wasent a official race, more like I would only do 3 miles but then thought "What the hell" and just continued. Ended up with 14 miles ( 22,5km ). Wrong decision to do it on one of the hotter days in the summer.
I was so dizzy after that, my hip and knees hurt like hell.
