The Runner's Thread So, I'm absolutely focused on running right now and thought it would be fun to start a thread where we shared our tips, training schedules, advice, food/diets, clothes, apps, music, to cheer each other on, share our race results, etc. All things to do with running. I'll start. I run every Mon, Wed, and Fri. Each week I slowly increase the distance. M is the same distance I did on W. Wed I increase M distance by a bit more. Friday is speed day. I do a slow warm up job, run at a challenging pace for one minute, and then do a four minute recovery jog. I do this for about for about 3 miles. I use my interval app on my iphone with keeps track of my time. After each run I do a session of BodyRock and every evening I do around 30 minutes of yoga. Food wise: I eat a lot. I do a lot of beans, quinoa, veggies, fruit, and water. Music: I use Pandora and usually listen to September station. I need that type of music to keep me going. Race goal: I've only run in one race so far. It was a 5k. I realized that I need to do a 10-15 minute warm up job before starting off so that I can start off faster. My time was 34:05, pace 10:59. My next race is in a few weeks. It's also a 5k and my goal is to do the whole run under 30 minutes.
