Default The running thread!

Well just that really a thread for any runners on here that wish to share hints. tips and advice on running. I know I could do with advice........

Also if you just want to share your runs on here, because most non-runners can't stand hearing about it, where as other runners actually want to hear other peoples thoughts.

Or perhaps its just me that tries to bore everyone with how far I've run this week......

I used to love to run, but dodgy knees and achilles tedonitis just proved too much of a pain in the end, literally ,one tip I could give though is always stretch before you run plus spend a bit of money on decent shoes and if possible find a specialist shop and take your old shoes in with you so they can check wear patterns etc.. so thats 3 tips then

This week............

I have run 12 miles.

I have biked 23 miles.

Swam 4 milesish.

Cross country Ski'ed 8miles.

Done 240 sit ups.

240 back things.

180 pull ups.

180 dip things.





Will be going again tonight Its starting to make a difference now......I'm RUBBISH at running though I have a strange problem with my ankles and once they are warmed up they click continuesly. Therefore I usually run for a warm up.....It annoys the hell out of me as I would love to do triathalon events but the running would destroy my knees and ankles.

I uesd to do half marathons and ten milers in the 80,s, at that time i was doing probably 35-40 miles a week but everytime I hit 40 plus something would break down and id be off running for weeks sometime, used to like nike pegasus or the internationalist but always got bad knees so moved onto asics and they gave me shin splints and achilles tendonitis would like to take it again and might go New balance next time

I'm currently doing about 35-40 miles per week and have only ever used Asics Kayano's. I started running at the end of Dec last year and am on my 3rd pair, so I'm off out tonight to see if I can find a cheaper longer lasting alternative.

Always wear good shoes though - really makes a massive difference.

I need to get some proper running shoes, think I'll get some this weekend.

I also need to work out a new route to do, getting bored of the same thing. Problem is where I live borders some not great areas that I'm not sure I'd like to run through in the dark.

My trainers are rubbish and not in good condition at all. My problem is there is so much choice in trainers......and the cost involved
