Running

Hello fellow runners!

I thought it would be a fun idea to start a new thread about a hobby I picked up about a year and a half ago. I played baseball and soccer all through high school, but since graduating in 1998, I have not really done much running since then, so I felt I needed to start doing something to get back up off the couch. I heard about the 500 Festival here in Indy and thought I would give it a try. I did the 5k in 2012 and right now I am in the midst of ramping up my training for the mini marathon in early May.

A problem for me sometimes is staying motivated or thinking, "maybe I'll just run x number of miles today instead of my goal". So, this can be a forum to post your motivational story, talk about your goals, or just report on your training and what race(s) you will be participating in so we can all feed off each other and keep that motivation going!

If you're in the Indy area, I'll see you downtown in May!

Got into running about 8 years ago. Did a couple Ragnar Relays with a some of my brothers and friends. That's a really cool series. I'm not big on super long distances. Anything over say 7 miles and I just lose focus. On that note, over the last two months I've been doing interval training where after warming up I will jog at a 8:30 to 9:00 minute/ mile pace for 2 minutes then run at a 6:00/mile pace for one minute. I repeat that cycle for about 3 miles. Pretty hard. Good way to get in a quick intense workout.

Running is too hard on my body these days. I used to run all the time as a pitcher in baseball, but now can't do it.

Good stuff. I struggle with running "fast" miles myself (since I'm 5'-9" tall, I tell myself its because I have short legs). I feel like I can run long distances, but I seem to be stuck around 12-13 minutes per mile, so I am definitely looking for ways to quicken my pace. My goal for the Mini Marathon in May is 2hr 30 min, which works out to about 11min 30sec per mile average. i might have to try that technique and see if that helps.

LOL, I was pitcher too in high school. Seems I did way more running than throwing in practice if I recall!

I imagine I might shut it down after this mini marathon for a while. I am only 32 going on 33, but I definitely feel it in my body afterwards these days.

I'm sure we both ran a few foul poles in our day. I just turned 40 and have resorted to spinning class and body pump. I like to ride/stand in the back for full yoga pant views.
