Is it the gait analysis that can help in terms of aching/hurting knees too? That's usually what kills off all of my efforts to get into running, although went out at the weekend and found that paracetemol eased the aching considerably the next day!


The correct trainers can solve a lot of problems so they could help. I had a dodgy knee this time last year (with good trainers) and used knee supports which really helped.

I GOT IN...to the normal ballot.

My bird also failed to get in on the Mirror Ballot, she sent me the link to the yorkshire marathon but i pointed out we're supposed to be in America at that time. So that one's off the cards.

She was looking at entering the New York Marathon, as a non-US human you can buy a ticket into it apparently... from what i've seen it's expensive!

my feet hurt a lot and I had to stop a few times

That could be for a variety of reasons I don't know about but if you do nothing else, make sure you have your gait analysis done (free at any running shop or Nike store) and get the right trainers for running. You will be amazed at the difference this makes It is always skimping on the clothing and spending more on trainers!



Thanks for the advice - never really been aware of this before now. I've actually been running in my old tennis trainers which are quite comfortable but perhaps I should invest in some proper running shoes, for the first time incredibly, since I've always been athletic, but the trainers I buy are usually sport specific. Not entirely sure why my feet hurt but pretty sure it's weight related (I'm about 8 llbs over the weight I believe I should be) but I remember even two years ago when I was a stone lighter having my feet go numb while running non stop, which was a little worrying. But I'm sure once I get lighter it will hurt less. In addition to that I've got a weak back which freezes up meaning I have to stop running after about a km and then resume again, but apart from that I'm pretty healthy!

Just a question about pedometers - I haven't had a chance to properly measure my stride length so I can work out how far I am running totally accurately, but roughly speaking does anyone know what the average stride length is for someone around 5"8? I've put it around 70cm, but was wondering if there was like a chart with stride length x height somewhere?

YES! If you have the gait analysis done and get the right trainers you'll be surprised at the difference. Running in tennis shoes is a no no!

I've had my feet go numb before when running a lot but never been too worried (I put it down to having the laces too tight on occasion ) as it always goes away quickly.

Not sure about the stride length though as I never bother to calibrate any app I am using

I'm in the Great North run. It'll be my 3rd time. Always a great day.

It's driving me mad not being able to get out there!!




4 months since I last ran properly. I'm going to physio again next week, and I'm still awaiting an MRI appointment. My chances of doing either of the 2 marathons I entered are looking very slim indeed.

On the + side, after being on the exercise bike last week i stretched my thigh and it was the first time in 4 months that I've managed to get my heel all the way to my backside. So there is some improvement in the knee.

Could be, your knees could be taking a lot of strain due to it. It's definitely worth getting done

When are you expecting the results Ben? Hope you manage to get it sorted

I actually made it along to my local parkrun and really glad that I did as it was beautiful. I was hard work as well as running on perfect snow rather than ice. Bit like running on sand at times!

Walking to the start



About half way round

I was just about to post in this thread to see if anyone has managed to get out for a run this weekend in the snow.

This was my view for 13 miles on Saturday.



I certainly can second the comment about it feeling like running on sand, surprised I managed to get 17 miles out of my legs.

She got into the RideLondon 100, which i didn't :(

So we've both entered our missed events via the stroke association, we're aiming to raise 1000 this year by doing lots of events, signed up for the marwell 10k already. Got to look into more runs/rides!

I've already had a cunning plan to make and sell cakes themed on the event...

I thought about entering the ballot for the Royal Parks, but was put off by the steep price.

Got a 30k run tomorrow at Stamford, should be a good eye opener for how my training stands for the London Marathon

Went out for a run earlier today- I much prefer running in the cold as opposed to warm conditions. It feels fresh and keeps me focused (plus I know that if I stop I'll freeze my ass off ). Does anyone know if you lose more calories running in warm/cold weather?

I've been building up my stamina by gradually increasing the distance of my runs. Maxed out at 4.75miles today which I was pretty proud of. And that including two massive/steep hills as well. I think I'm going to try and get my time down (49.36mins) on this route before increasing my distance any further.

Out of interest- how fast do you guys think you could run 4.75 miles. Just so I know what I'm up against Don't forget, that including TWO MASSIVE HILLS

Seems to be 2 schools of thought

quote:

1) People Who Think They Burn More Calories When Exercising In Hot Weather
- More than 70 percent of the energy used by your muscles during workout is lost as heat. So, your muscles are warmer when you exercise hard. Your heart needs to pump the hot blood from your heated muscles to your skin so that hear can be dissipated. The hotter it is, the more work your heart has to do. So, more calories are burnt.
- Also, this camp of people uses hot yoga classes as one of the supporting claims that exercising in hot environment will burn more calories and therefore losing weight.

2) People Who Think They Burn More Calories When Exercising In Cold Weather
- This group of people believe that when one is shivering during the exercise in cold weather, he will burn more calories. Bear in mind that shivering is an involuntary clenching of muscles and its purpose is to warm you up. Apart from that, some energy is required to heat the air entering the lungs when you breathe.
- In addition to shivering, when you have to run and rub your hands together, you end up burning more calories. Also, more calories will be burnt if the exercisers wear bulky clothing.




I do like running in cold weather but not when it is wet and windy as well!! Feb as been a bit of a slow month for me running wise, I've done more gym classes but hoping to get right back in to running outside in March!
Having said that, I love running really early in the morning so in the summer it is perfect as lovely running as the sun is just up in cool conditions.

I tend to run around a 10 min mile or just below so around 45-50 mins (I work in km and normally do a 10k (6.2miles) in an hour but hoping to smash that this year!!

Hill running is great work and will help when running a flat course.

I'm aiming for 8minute miles,

This is my last longer run: http://app.strava.com/activities/42080549 which if you look at the profile you can see it also hilly. Southampton is very hilly!

In answer to your 4.7mile question, i'd have to work it out, but my morning 4mile route takes 30-33mins.

So it turns out not only did I beat my Half Marathon PB, that I'd only just set last week, this weekend at Silverstone but I (#9787) beat Iwan Thomas in the process too.

Well done! (think he's saying blah blah blah ) Iwan Thomas does look like he's caning it there though

A couple of my mates did Silverstone and got PB's as well! They did say it got really boring in places though. Not one I'd fancy doing tbh.

Is that you 110? Your back leg looks weird!

I did a parkrun this morning for the first time in a while, i didn't know it was a fancy dress one, they were fundraising for comic relief apparently. Nearly puked my guts up at the end, i've been hitting the bike recently because of an event last weekend and i've been neglecting the runs. Need to get back on it for a 10k on the 24th!

Been sticking with my 4.75m route. I went slower on Tuesday at 51mins, but today I managed to get it down to 48.24mins. I think there were two (possibly three) reasons why I managed to get the time down; I took a bottle of water with me, put a drop of olbas oil on my t-shirt and possibly that it was colder today Whether or not they did make any difference, I do feel as though my stamina is increasing. I just love the feeling of getting to the top of a massive hill, gasping for breath, then seeing the flat/downhill and realising that I can carrying on going

'Grats on the half marathon PB too

Btw, thanks for the times guys

Missed that bit

I have a 4.6mile run (quite hilly) near me that I was doing in anything from 35-40mins before I got injured. 10km times ranging from 43-46 mins.


Your stamina will defo be improving and soon you'll be looking for more hills to run up.

So as a target to keep my fitness thing up, I've signed up for a 5k in November, which granted as I've previously done the Great North Run twice shouldn't be a big deal, except I had a big injury in the knee last year where my tendons where in the wrong place, plus I've put a fair bit of weight on since then, needless to say I'm already crapping it a bit, but seeing as its a run for Mo-Vember where the medal has a moustache, I'm also bloody excited!

I had no idea he was even running the race, just happened to see a photo of him on the Silverstone Facebook page and saw myself in the background, checked up the times and saw that I beat him by 30 seconds.

Just been for the consultancy on my knee. Turns out the doctor and physio were wrong and my ligament is torn. Meaning a bigger operation than planned and no running for 6-12months. It's already taken 7month to get this far.

Bollocks

It looks like no GNR for me this year either.
