When I'm not playing roller hockey or tennis I run. I only run for about one mile. Can't go longer cause of pain in my knee. Tennis flat out kills my knee. I guess it's from fast starts and stops, but I still love to play. Roller hockey is easy on my knee. I get no pain at all and a tremendous workout. Running 5k, 10k and marathons? Not a chance.

I walk that on some days when I can't hit my driver accurately on the golf course.....

I do a couple of charity 5k's that I manage to do well in, but I'm not really into running for the sake of running.

I was wondering if any of the guys here were running to compare some training ideas.

After taking 4 years off I started running again a in 2007 -- a few hundred miles. I used to run between 1200 to 1500 miles a year. This year I will be around the 800 mile range.

I have been running a race almost every weekend. Today, I'm doing some speed training. 8 -- 400 meter dashes. It is too hot.

I ran a 10K race today in Lexington, MA.

I had to laugh my tail off when they introduced the singer of the National Anthem -- "Joining us today is the anthem singer of the Boston Bruins, Rene Rancourt!"

Big cheers from the home crowd.

The guy's voice is weak.

I'm running another half-marathon this coming Sunday in Danbury. It will be my second in 3 weeks. I want to break 2 hours. I was 2:04 a few weeks ago. I should be more comfortable in Danbury since I have run there a lot over the years. Hopefully I'll have a good day.

I just started running. I've been weight training and using ellipticals consistently for about two years but my feet always hurt when I ran for more than a mile. Now that the weather is nice I've been running outside more. I'm 55 lbs lighter and find my feet feel ok. The only time I can get a run in though is saturdays after work. I'm at school/work usually 8-8 m-f. I've been running a 3.5 mile loop but want to work my way up to possibly 10 then maybe half marathon one day but I have a ways to go. My brother just finished running in the paris marathon to raise money for blood cancer research.
Edit: well not just finished, but you know what I mean.

Good Stuff 339

Find yourself a 5K to sign up for. Running can get real boring. I find races give short term motivational goals. Plus, the races usually benefit some charity like the race your brother ran.

Kudos to your bro. I have completed 8 marathons and its a great feeling.

btw if you want some help finding local races I might be able to point you in the right direction.

My father was a runner... since the day I could remember... he ran & finished the NYC Marathon 15 times... Every tri, bi marathon... swimming, running, biking, skating, speed walking race NYC had to offer.... he was the definition of....... athlete who could do it all... with his legs. He still had a heart attack..... my thought... he never drank enough water...Dehydration.

Wow, you run the NYC marathon every year? You must be pretty fortunate to win in the lottery for a racing number -- every year! Good for you.


So, what type of running shoes do you wear? As most runners refer to them as shoes and not sneakers.

I've got many races I am going to almost every weekend but this one is of note: The New England Patriots are sponsoring a 10K race on Independence Day. The finish line is one of the goal lines in Gillette Stadium.

I just signed up for the race and my son is loaning me is Curtiss Martin Jets Jersey to wear, and with my Jets ball-cap I ought to make quite a splash running into the stadium. Hah.

I think I'll do a Heisman pose when I finish.

Ran another 5K today

24:58 for and 8:02 pace. 50/230 runners or 22%

Tough freakin course today/ Lots of hills. I am really pleased with that time and I lowered my finishing place percentage.

I really ran hard up the hills and was passing quite a few people.


Next weekend I run 2 5K's and a half marathon 13.1 miles in 2 weeks.

This past weekend I completed my 7th half-marathon (13.1 miles) since March. This last one was the best time of the year -- 1:55.

My speed is improving as I run the shorter races and will translate into the longer races.

I have just filled out and mailed the application for a marathon (26.2 miles) on Feb 27 in Hyannis, Massachusetts.

This will be my 9th.

Running winter time marathons is sketchy as the weather can wreak havoc on the training schedule. I'll see what happens.

I have run this marathon twice and one year it was 55 degrees on race day. The other year it started snowing during the race and many of the marathoners quit after the first loop. I ran large portions of that race where I saw no one ahead or behind me. Water stations were abandoned, and the people/volunteers which guide the runners through the turns were nowhere to be found.

I'll give it a shot. If the training does not work out because of the bad weather I'll find another race in the spring.

I'm starting with a good base as my weekly long run is already up to 14 miles, and around 35 miles total for the week. This will get boosted to around 50 miles per week and walking up the milegae ladder of long runs of 20 miles.

I could never run in the winter..i'd get tremendous ear and lung pain from the cold.

I usually do not have a problem if I am running through the cooler weather of the fall and then into the cold weather of winter -- I get acclaimated.

But I know what you mean with the cold weathr being tough for breathing. It can burn your insides out when you are not used to it.

Very well done. Congratulations. I've been trying a little running myself the last couple of days, but am far away from your numbers. I've got a pretty nice track next to my home but find it hard to motivate myself sometimes. Especially when the weather gets ugly like recently. But therefore I am even more content, when I make it . It feels like heaven to get up from that sofa, coming back from the track and taking a nice hot shower.

Running is a progressive exercise. Start out slow and short distance, and you'll find yourself building up over the weeks and months.

The track is a great place to start because your distances are short enough that you will not go crazy going round and round. And you take out the other variables such as the harder surface of the road and hills.

I am on week 8 of 18 and putting in some serious mileage -- I just ran my long run of 15 miles for the 2nd time.

It has been so many years since I ran these sorts of distances. It is a crazy thing to stand at the top of the driveway, ready to start the watch, and think I'm going to run 15.

Today I also went over the 1200 mile total for the calendar year.

Just finished week 10 of 18 of the training plan for the marathon.

I ran 41 miles this week. That is the first time I have run over 40 for a week since 2002.

I finished the calendar year with 1,286 miles.

Next week my long run is 16 miles.

I'm in week 12 of 18 of the training plan

With the snow today it is going to be difficult to hit the 47 mile goal for the week.

But I did get the 18 mile long run in on Sunday.

I don'no how you do it. 18 miles just seems entirely to much for me to even consider. Add to the fact that I detest running I'm finding it harder and harder to actually start. I'm usually good week one to about half of week 2 (starting at about a mile to a mile and a half a day depending on time constraints) and about half way through week 2 I can barely make a mile run with out my right ankle killing me. I will run on it like that for another a or so then have to stop for a few days which kills any stability I can build up and it's like start all over again after.

The weather has been bad but what is worse is the conditions of the road -- before today I had got out to run 1 time in the past two weeks. The roads have just not been safe.

Today I got out and ran 20 miles. I was a little winded having not run so much but it was a good run.

Marathon 26 days away.

One week away from marathon Sunday --

Ran a 10-mile race today. 89:44 -- not bad as my breathing really stinks having run so little the past 4 weeks.

I hope to run a couple days of half-mile intervals and push the breathing.

Outlook for the weather next sunday is partly cloudy and about 37 degrees. I'll take it.
