I agree with that. Before I really started running I would see someone and remark on how 'slow they were running', but now I'm just like, 'Good pace 🙂".
or travel to Gran Canaria, enjoy the weather and run through its ravines
now please, I'm not trying to say you're not telling the truth or anything. However the don't eat before a run, seems ok on the surface but when you say that before swimming I just have to frown. Now I have not ever had an issue with food and swimming but I'm not really a swimmer since I think I would drown before I finished a 2.5-mile swim, look I have enough issues with 4-width swims at the pool. Now saying that I have not really had an issue with drowning when I go for a swim and I do feel 100% safer when I am swimming on my back like it feels effortless, I imagine some of the great swimmers must feel that way when they swim. But I just want to say the time you say seems like a long time. Yes, thanksgiving meal usually leaves me so full that laying down on the couch always seems like the best plan and maybe if the whole family says let us go for a walk I could be gotten out the door but not likely because I said let us go for a walk :) However, that family walk will not win any race.
Started running this year . I cycle a lot but wanted to add something else . Also I cyclocross in the winter . My fitness is good and usually cycle a couple of hundred miles a week in summer maybe 100 per week winter . I joined a club as I couldn’t run around the block . Best thing ever . Since April/may time I’ve run with then once a week , gradually upped it to twice a week Monday and Wednesday . My long distance running was never good even at school . This week at the grand age of 55 I did a 10k . I still don’t find it that easy but never did I think I could run that far . It also seems to of helped my cycling . My recovery after an effort on the bike is even quicker . It adds to my cycling I feel 😁
Any suggestions on how to avoid/stop yawning while running? I don't know what it is but a few minutes in and I can't stop yawning; I don't experience this when cycling or swimming, only running.
Great tips thank you -
my tip is... I am 62 years '''Young''' running 3 times por week 40/50 km.
Curitiba/Brazil. Here now 3.00 pm -
23 degree Celsius
As a runner myself, I never really understood how people don’t enjoy it… until I had gotten to a point where I was so out of shape that running 5 km was difficult and demoralizing! Start with low distance and go slow, but go often, I’d say. You’ll see a difference in fitness and running ease immediately! I also recommend focusing on some form aspect of running each time you head out, such as focusing on hip tilt, breathing, or keeping the arms close to 90 degrees. Make sure the goal/focus is NOT on speed or distance/terrain performance (eg, running all the way up the hill without walking). This will take the pressure off you to “perform” and will help you run with better form and posture, resulting in fewer injuries. New running kit definitely helps!
Some people like to use music as a cadence guide, just make sure your earphones are comfy and don't fall out!
Really enjoyed this video. As someone who grew up running at a high level, I've found it really difficult to get out of that "must train hard at all costs" mentality that age group athletes have. Now that I'm older and less fit, this has really knocked my enjoyment of running. However, I found that I started to enjoy it again when helping friends get into running, probably due to the companionship and the fact that I'm running well below threshold pace.
Slow down is the best tip I have ever had about running. After many failed attemps in trying to become a runner I hired a coach and 1st thing he said: slow down!! Now I can finally said I have running regularly for three months and I enjoy it!
I would add not caring about the numbers if you are struggling with running, just build the habit, there will be room for improvement, for running faster or longer.
Great video as always!!!
So its been confirmed that there will no Men's Race at Kona for 2023, it will now go to a split year format with the women racing in 2023 and then men racing elsewhere for the world champs, then vice versa in 2024 and so on.
Getting back into running, bought myself a pair of new ON cloud shoes today and feeling very spoilt- love it. Thanks for the tips 💜💕
Disagree with mouth breathing been proven that it's nowhere near as beneficial as inhaling through the nose
You missed step one: book flight to Tenerife
For treadmill running, I distract myself with watching GTN. Outside, I pick a run with lovely views which really raise my spirits when I’m flagging.
Definitely running with other people. I would add get into a running habit, for example run an hour in the morning on a couple of days a week, so you don’t need to worry about going it’s just a habit. One final thing, do Park Run. Has other people, it creates a habit, is a great start to the weekend and there is usually coffee and cake at the end!
