What do you love about running?

Topic • 34 replies

I've been really slacking this month, and I need some inspiration and motivation so I just wanted to talk about our favorite things about running. For me, other than getting fit and healthy of course, it clears my mind. I've never been good at meditating b...

What I love about running is the sensation you get while doing it when you feel the air going against your body, your heart racing, the feeling of total freedom and that no one can stop you... At least that's how I feel 


Why do I run?

Topic • 48 replies

I run because it warms my body on these cold winter days. I run because I feel stronger. I run because I feel thinner. I run because it makes me feel good. I run because I want to be fit. I run because I like the way I look with a flushed face. I run becaus...

I run because: 1. It is a great way to stay in shape. 2. It is cheaper than a therapist. 3. Nothing else makes me feel this good about myself.

I think a lot of the problems people are experiencing in a traditional shoe are caused, in part by an improper shoe for how your foot pronates. While the majority of people have a neutral pronation. Which means all they need is some cushioning or support bu...

Where I am at in Montana it is an extremely cheaper option than what I have found other places. I am sure like anything, with shopping around you can find a better deal on things. Fo me it is about quality first. I could go into Target and buy a lot of C9 g...

When working 10 hours or more with little time for a regular lunch what should one keep in the purse or drawer to snack on to maintain energy so that there is room for at least a short workout at the end of the day?

Too much running bad for your health??

Don't want to say too much, just thought I would share this link and ask what you all think because I know there's a bunch of avid runners on here.

I have an old school friend who took up running at the age of 46. She ran across the Simpson desert. She is current running from London to Rome - the Pilgim route. She is doing it without any backup crew. So based on her I dont think you can run to much lol...


Do interim distance PB's count when running a longer race?

Topic • 5 replies

Ran a half marathon last weekend, recorded my fastest first 7km and 10km splits, but not my fastest half marathon. I don't consider the interim PBs as valid, it would make no difference whether my HM was or wasn't a PB. So I am a single PB person for the...

DId you have a great first half Kevin? I most certainly did Jane, it was brill, even though I had to run with an injury that made completing it the objective rather than time based. I did an update on my 'Convert 5000 run / walk miles challenge' on 4th o...

"The Cool Impossible" by Eric Orton

Topic • 3 replies

Just finished reading "The Cool Impossible" by Eric Orton. Tremendous book, and I recommend it to all runners. You can read more about it in my review here, and even win a signed copy (US only). Thanks!

Yes indeed. The slant board was the key thing for me, being able to do the stability exercises & build strength in my legs ready to run barefoot / with minimalist shoes. Eric rocks!

This race sells itself as a 5km with a party at the end - - I kinda think this embodies the rant from the original article (but definitely think it would make running more fun) That Neonvibe 5km run looks almost identical to...

Train in miles to race in Kilometers..

Topic • 20 replies

So, whilst out on my run this morning had started to form a 'cunning' plan..... Why not do all my trining/casual runs in Miles so that the Kilometer races 'may' appear shorter/easier. For example whilst training for a 5Km race/parkrun - why don;t I train...

Every distance requires different training aproach. You cant train for 100m sprints doing 5-10mile runs.. as different energy systems applys. Same for 5km race you need to train all : speed, speed endurance and endurance and even strengh. One 5mile run is...
