    The Running Club

    A thread for discussing all things running.
    Tips, times, distances, favourite places to run, random running thoughts...

    sometimes when i'm on a long run and feeling physically fatigued, i will pass another person and have one of those "hello : )" brief greetings, this happened this morning, and i notice for about five minutes a difference in how i feel. it's suddenly easier, i feel briefly recharged. i've noticed this many times.
    just an interesting piece of evidence for how powerful those brief greetings and smiles are.

    I hurt my hip a few months ago and every time I tried to run I made it worse. So, I took 3 months off running and hope to be back at it this month. I miss it so much!

      I think I mentioned on HF once when we were talking about running how much I haaated it when I was a runner several years ago. I did it every day for 2 years because it was so good for my mental health and overall outlook but I hated the actual act of running.

      But since i've been trying to get back into it the last couple of weeks I've found music makes a huge difference. I didnt listen to music when I was running before. It sort of becomes a dance of sorts when music is playing.

          In the army I learned that a good 2-3 mile run cures a hangover, although the first 15 minutes is pure hell. But after that I'd notice I would break out in a shirt-drenching sweat and my mind would begin to clear. Then after a shower I'd feel like new. I ran off many a hangover.

            lots of people talk about hating running, and i think a lot about why that might be. one thing that struck me... if i am not really well slept running is significantly less enjoyable, even if i've had technically enough sleep. like i'm not actually tired... considering that it's considered quite normal to not have the best sleep routines, i wonder if that plays a part.

            i believe there is scientifically demonstrated link between music and pain reduction, but i'd have to check that. i don't need it for running but anything like weights or squats, that kind of thing, i get bored without music.

              summer rainstorm weather.. mild but breezy, dark grey clouds on the edge of heavy rain but not quite, or just spitting.. this is my favourite running weather conditions.
              and how it was this morning : )

                Yeah sleep and rest probably does play a big part of it. Also, diet. My diet was shit when I was running a few years ago and my muscles would cramp easily.

                Thats interesting about music and pain! I'll have to check into that too. I think movement of the body is meant to have a natural rhythm to it and we lose that in our modern lifestyle, so listening to music while we work out or do any sort of movement helps us move much more naturally and in a way that isn't as harmful to the body

                  I might run if I lived out in the country. I'm not about running through town, though.

                    yeah, any exercise is good for a hangover. at least a reasonable hangover; if you can't stand up without the room spinning then at that point there's no cure except for time.

                      i felt the same. when i took up running i lived in a town so i would always go at 4am when it was dark, because i felt stupid if people saw me

                        I like to mix it up. Running sideways (right side forward), sideways (left side forward), and backwards. I warm my body up with 30 min of cardio before running. Running is meditation.

                          i like running along the coast path for all the little twists and turns, rocks and stuff... it prompts me to turn and take steps sideways and longer strides mixed with shorter ones. i find it meditative too. i love hills.

                            Do you do barefoot running? I guess that's a thing.

                            but more often i wear running shoes, but "minimalist" ones, with fairly thin soles.

                          Must be beautiful to run along coast paths during sunset or sunrise. I use to run along the bay when i was living in Florida. Some of the most magical moments i had. Sometimes you'll see dolphins. If you really want to challenge your cardio i say buy a full body sauna suit and run with that on. Not those cheap ones you buy at a sporting good stores. The more expensive ones you buy online, like titleboxing.com. I use to do that on hot Florida days and it really boast my endurance. I use to have those weighted vests too. Good times.
