• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

How many miles did you run today?

I got up at 05:30 today and ran just over 28 km (about 17 1/2 miles) along the Ara river and back. When I did this one three weeks ago it felt so hard, but after 2 almost 40km weekend long runs, it didn't feel bad at all. I was comfortable enough to run the last 4km a bit faster, so my final average pace was under 6 min/km, although most of it was probably more like 6:05 - 6:10, which is what I was aiming for.

.1775 miles in honor of the Marine Corps’ birthday. I just didn’t feel like running today, so walked instead...

I've caught a disgusting cold from my son (which he got from school...), so I'm not doing my tempo today. Hopefully things will be better by track time tomorrow evening...

Im not a good runner, trying to get into it. Does it ever get better or does it just suck less?

It gets to a place where you miss not running but that takes a few years of consistency. The first thing I recommend is taking the plunge and going to a running specific store to get fitted for some shoes. I've run in bad shoes and you pay quickly. The second thing I would recommend is not overdoing it early on otherwise you will get injured. Yea it may feel like you could run a 5K but you have to build your body up to take a pounding.

Step one is all good to go. I got a pair of Hoka trail shoes (neutral) and a pair of Hoka road shoes (stability)

I think the road shoes feel better but may be .5 size too small.

It's now cold and snowing so I'll be using the trail shoes more than the road shoes

How aggressive are the lugs on the trail shoes? I had a pair of hybrids that worked fine on roads but they never felt great on the roads.

If you're over 40, or overweight, or have prior injuries, I'd strongly urge following one of those "run/walk" routines for the first 4-12 weeks of your program.

Look up Hoka Torrent
The Torrent’s are dope. I’m a fan. More racing oriented in terms of protection and cushioning though. When you decide to build up your rotation and are looking for something more daily trainer / long run friendly look into the Evo Speedgoat. While designed for racing ultras, it’s very forgiving on the body and extremely comfortable on a variety of surfaces. My favorite trail shoe of 2019.

Feeling like absolute dogshit the past 7 days. Straight up not having a good time getting even light volume miles in.

Not sore, injured, or feeling weak...more like sleepy and stiff. I’ve been sleeping ~9 hours per night too and I STILL feel like I wish I had another 3 hours.

I think I’ve narrowed it down to either Mono, AIDS (most common), or maybe overtrained?
