In the past year, I have become a pretty avid runner. I live in New Jersey in a town with many lakes and private communities. While called “private,” these communities are not gated, so I’m tempted to run through them for the awesome scenery on some of my long run days, but I haven’t pulled the trigger yet because I don’t know the rules and/or etiquette. Any advice is much appreciated. :)
So ever since I dislocated my knee cap while running (it happened five years ago and I'm fine now) I feel like when I run that I have this tick where I want to scrape my right front of my shoe on the ground. Does anyone else experience this?
I’m starting track in three weeks for school, and have no previous experience. Can i get advice to help me start? what shoes to get, how much to do, etc.
I'm just getting started with running to the point of never even having done a race. I have schizoaffective disorder and haven't won anything besides a participation trophy in 4th grade.
I just really like the idea of medals signifying that you did something. A lot of them look pretty cool.
Link me your medals as motivation.
Are any parent runners here interested in a children’s book about running?
I'm stuck on selecting the right sports watch for me. I initially wanted to go with Garmin, which is probably the best-known brand.
I haven't decided between Forerunner 255 and 955, the latter offers a few more features but I'm not convinced whether I should pay extra money for it. I was also advised to look at Polar and Suunto, but now I'm wondering which brand out of these three offers the best user experience on their watches and whose fitness platform is more versatile? Here are my dilemmas:
I'm looking for a platform that will be at least as good as the old good Endomondo platform, with more features related to sleep quality and readiness for the next training session. Progression and personal records are important to me. Also, social features like competing with friends etc. would be great but not necessary.
I'd like the User Experience on a sports watch to be concise and provide relevant information about the current body condition etc.
I still don't know whether I should choose a watch with a MIP or an AMOLED screen... MIP screens seem bleached and blunt, however, AMOLED ones are way more expensive...
Which brand out of these three will provide the features I'm looking for? I'm keen to hear out your opinions guys. Thanks.
So random question/thought that I am interested in hearing opinions on. Two summers ago I ran consistently. Alot. I loved it. I did notice that I would sometimes get pains in my right buttcheek (sorry for the info), so I slowed down how often I ran and really stretched out the muscles and felt fine! It was fine as I increased my km's and that was great and I was able to run lots again. Then winter and my last year of undergrad hit and I stopped running. I've noticed since then that every time I start working out my legs/running again I get a pain that comes back, but not while I'm doing the workout. It happens randomly at any part of the day and it is a sharp pain in my buttcheek. I mean super sharp, it takes my breath away and I have a high pain tolerance! I guess my main question is does this sound like an injury I gave myself two years ago?? Recently I've started running again and remembered how much I love it so I'm worried that I did, or if there is a way I can stretch this out? My mindset has usually.been work through it but I'm in my 30s and maybe that isn't always the best 🤣
Hey. So I've created
where you can get some social motivation for running by challenging friends/family/colleagues to see who will run X kilometers first.
I am currently using it to track who in my family will be the first to complete 100 kilometers this year. I am not leading, so I should probably get running instead of being on Reddit.
If it sounds interesting to anyone, check it out. It's free and it integrates with Strava.
Somethings up with my form. I seem to be landing on the outside of my feet and then snapping them flat into place. I have arthritis in my right hip and tore either a ligament or tendon (sorry I forget which) in my right ankle a few years ago now. Perhaps I am oddly compensating?
So I've been getting runners knee for a while. My usual runs are around 10-15k. Pain would come on post run after sitting for a while or lying down in bed at night if knee in certain position. Sure my patella was tracking out.. Like an ache below and around the knee cap so annoying.
I tried everything then recently found a couple of fixes. One was I stopped doing pistol or single legs squats off a chair which I think may have contributed. I also iced post run. Then I changed my running gait, slowed right down and shortened my stride, engaged core more etc. Since I did that I can now notice around a 15% slight ache if I lengthen it again. First time I changed I was really sore day after in my hammies and calves.
Now the pain has completely gone utterly bizarre. Obv dodgy biomechanics?
Nice heel counter update in the Elite, and no issues with blisters, which I did experience in the Pro 3. Forked CFP under the forefoot felt better through the toe-off as well, when compared to the Pro 3. The question becomes, is it worth a $50 bump in price from Pro 3 to the Endorphin Elite? Thoughts?
I got into trail running mid 2022 with no prior running experience I was also much heavier about 50 lbs since I started running. I've consistently been running races since, mostly 5k and I've seen my time greatly improve. Well big me decided to sign up for a 21k, the longest I've run in a race was 7.8 which was by mistake. I ran the long course by mistake that was about 3 months ago and 20 lbs heavier. I remember through that race I felt fine just got lonely caught in no man's land after I stopped seeing others and doubted if I was still on the right trail. I finished that race at about 1:30:49 even with just a 120z water bottle I was fine. My final races in December were 5.75 miles each so at the bare minimum I know I have that in the tank. I've seen the times from last year and saw that the slowest time was of 4 hours, I'm not dogging this person but I feel confident I can move my body for 13 miles in under 4 hours. The race has 4 aid stations for water/Gatorade so I'm not too worried about dehydration.
- Title in the original language: Never stop
- Author: Mari Karachina
- Genre: sports
"Inside each of us is a small person who runs well. Release him." This appeal is successfully described by the Ukrainian fitness trainer Marie Karachyna in the book "Never stop". She talks about running not as a sport, but as a philosophy of life. The book "Never stop" is reflections, experiences and monologues about self-improvement, self-belief and constant movement.
This book is for those who want to start running and don't know how to take the first step. For those who think that life is a drama, but want to find the strength to say stop it. For those who have lost motivation for training. For those who love running and want to share the emotions of movement with others
In this book, you will not find clear instructions on where to start training, how to eat right, and what shoes to choose. In it you will find motivation, the author's own running experience and many of her considerations.
Impressions from the book
The book is about emotions, about freedom, about choice, about achievements, about searching for oneself and, of course, about running - marathons in different cities and countries. Running as a way to tell yourself that you can, that you are strong, that you feel and that you live.
