dont know where the thread went.
Dreaded to much work/school dragon bit me. I've not been running more than a day or two a week for the last 6 months.
I'm down to 7:15 to 7:30 miles :(.

Going to try and get back to 6:45~7:10 miles.

houston marathon has gone to a lottery system. (sucks. I did not enjoy it last year. Felt like they were herding cattle. if you did not do it you did not miss much. i think I will look into a rock n roll half, or some other local event this year. I wont be out running even 5k's till I feel competative again.

Remember you will run slower when you are doing heat training (when is it not hot in the summer) but will pay off when it cools off. Stay hydrated.

I run using my nike+

I got a fat ass bruise on the underside of my foot that has kept me from not running in a few days.

I just need to keep stretching out my shins every chance i get...

It got hidden after the server upgrade and since I started the original thread, I think I was the only one that could access it: http://houston-imports.com/forums/showthread.php?t=558514&page=3

Any hamstring stretches that help you guys out? I have really tender hamstrings that I can't seem to stretch out enough. Ends up tightening my lower back so much it hurts at times. Or for that matter, lower back stretches?

Thanks.

I dont do any stretches really. Maybe some lunges, some head to toe. And then I'm off.

i love Nike+
i got the Nike Free Run+, and every time i run in them i feel like i'm cheating my run because they make running soooo easy.

and please stretch on a daily basis. especially before and after a run

i always stretch before and after i run and i hold the stretch for 30 seconds, holding it for a few seconds keeps the muscle tight and your brain is trying to relax that muscle so hold it longer to get a good stretch in and you are good to go. I stretch each calf muscle for 30 seconds, stretch quads for 30 seconds, rotate my upper body, and stretch my arms/shoulders. I am getting a bit more flexible as well as less soreness.

i never strech right before I run. 30 minutes before maybe on a 5k,10k, 1/2 marathon day, but not on every day running (which for me I guess is technically a 5k). It can actually make you more prone to hurting yourself if you "over stretch".

It is really overrated. Strech to gain flexability not to play a sport or run. Should be two different things.

I still like to stretch out a bit before running it's like popping your knuckles before a fight.

I do dynamic stretching 5-15min before a run; never immediately before a run.

It's after my runs when I do static stretching (holding a stretch for 30seconds and slowing relaxing it nearing 45seconds).

THIS

static stretching after your muscles are loose will help out more than before. dynamic stretching before a run is better than static

I'll have to continue to disagree on the stretching.

I run very against conventional wisdom, but it gets results for me.

I just don't like the idea of running or doing anything intensive without warming up the muscles a bit.

I did a slow clap when you flipped your Rav4 over by getting hit from a civic... but in all seriousness, when you jog everyday, I just dont seem the need to, just wanna burn this hour and go. Dont get me wrong, if I've had a rough day or feel the need to I'll stretch, but 80% of the time its just - get er' done.

Im with ya on that one.

Read the article. It was printed in the magazine, I remember reading it back then.

Back in Cross Country during high school our "warm-up" was a 1/2 mile jog and our "cool down" (after running five or six miles) was a 1/2 mile jog.


I never ever understood that shit. :gonk:

Just a bit off topic but i figure it would be better here than in the other thread.
