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 kneeŽs 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. KneeŽs, 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.
