  • Finally got out this morning. It was 2°. Good run, ended up quite slow in comparison to my recent times, but felt comfortable and strong, so still happy with it.

  • Kids birthday party today so no run. I'll likely go tomorrow if the clean up goes ok....

  • Kings birthday weekend here, so got down to the beach again. Great run this morning in the misty rain through the back of the town, then onto the beach. Doggo off lead for about 3km or so. Spontaneous decision at the end of the run to go for a swim was a good one - bloody cold though.

  • What the hell watch... I'm pushing myself here, almost making 5min/km for the whole run and coming within 10-20 seconds of my 5km pb each time, and apparently I'm maintaining or in recovery....

  • Been feeling a little under the weather so missed my weekend run. Got out this morning though. It's getting darker and colder in the mornings here. Doesn't seem to affect how much I sweat.

  • It feels good to have a running buddy.

    It's great, right? I love running with my dog.

  • Running General Chat - Weekly Thread Sat 25 May 2024
  • Yeah, pretty common. I've a lot of injuries from previous work as a climbing arborist, neck, back, shoulder etc. I have a great bed and pillow set up, but if I sleep slightly wrong I get headaches. Going for a run settles everything down though and they go away. Just hard to remember that when lying in bed prior to.

  • Woke up with a headache this morning, so getting out was a struggle. Glad I did though, as always. Managed 10km (53min), by not turning home just yet a couple of times. Doggo got into the rhythm too which helped.

    Can I ask for how to remedy my build here?
  • Not that I'm any good at building, but a common strategy I've seen on various YouTube channels is to have a rough reference picture for what you're working towards. An image search for something and adding the word concept or concept sketch usually gives back something good. It helps you remember the final look you're after.

    Eg. Image search for desert castle concept

    Nb. Ignore the sarcasm at the link, just using it to explain what I mean

  • I'm working towards that I think. I've done a trail run or two expecting to have music but my headphones haven't worked, so just had the sound of my footsteps and nature - was just as you say, very meditative.. Currently using a 150bpm playlist though to get to a consistent rhythm. So hopefully that'll build and I can start running free of music.

  • Down at the beach again for the weekend, so a good sea-fresh run this morning with the doggo. Consistently keeping a 5min/km pace now and starting to feel stronger too.

  • ......stupid watch, I'm pushing myself here man!

  • Running General Chat - Weekly Thread Sat 11 May 2024
  • Managed to drag myself out of bed late this morning. Doggo had been patiently waiting for an extra hour or so. Had a headache, didn't want to go.... Managed a PB in the end, sub 25/5. Feels good man.

  • If you can give it a try I think you'll like it. It's the only time of day my body let's me do it soreness wise.

  • Missed a few days, but got out this morning. Upping my regular things from 5 to 6/6.5km. feels pretty good.

    PB with the doggo this morning

    Obviously not that great in comparison, but I've managed to keep running 3 times a week since September last year. I'm pretty happy with this I've gotta say. Started running for weight loss and heart health. Haven't lost any weight - I'm still ~120kg post COVID - but my heart health has improved a lot.

    Side note - if I was to compete against the 4 minute mile record holder, they would beat me by almost exactly 4 minutes...haha
