Care-tags running club

Postby Catfush » Sun Feb 16, 2014 10:14 pm

So I've been getting back into running and I thought it would be kind of fun to set up a little running club here. I'm using Strava, so you can join the club and then get the app and it'll track your run and all that jazz and automatically upload it to club page (I think). Here is the page for anyone interested. I'm pretty sure you can just join, but if not send me your email address and I'll send an invite.

Hope we have some runners here, could be a fun, casual little thing (smiling)

You'd probably gain weight from eating so much. I reckon I do.

Same for me. My increase in hunger far outweighs any calories I burn while running.

This is sick. I've been keeping a logs on flotrack and runningahead, but this strava interface looks cool. Y'all training for anything?

joined, also if you guys don't want to doxx yourselves then you should probably start and end your work outs not at your residence. Also can we do biking too?

In privacy settings you can set up a hidden location by address and it will hide activity within a radius. And I think biking would be awesome.

Do hills ever get easier? Also, what shoes are you guys running in? I think I'm going to get some new ones

Yeah. I've been doing a series of hills in my regular run and it definitely gets easier. I use gyakusou trainers. The ones from last season

I used to hate forefoot running (is that what it's called?) because I always felt like I was prancing and it was weird. I recently started forcing myself into it because I know it's better for me and, after about a week of tip-toeing through the streets, it's starting to come naturally. Hits calves a lot harder, though.

edit: I have free 5.0 or something I think. I'd recommend them.

I wouldn't get effay on running shoes so I'd just go to a running shop and get them to recommend me a shoe

I haven't been able to run in a while... I play ultimate and that's a lot of running but it's multi-sprint running. Pretty different.

Discussion: Music. Do you run with music? If so, what?

this is the mix I run to:

I have a pair of cheap earbuds that clip around the ear that are great for running. Thinking about getting an arm strap for my phone because it's a pain to hold while running.

I've been running to Teebs and some footwork compilations. I can't wait until I can implant a smartphone in my head so I don't have to carry it.

Boston Marathon getting me really hyped about running.

watched a stream of the boston marathon to see the winners cross the finish line. got goosebumps hearing the crowd; the adrenaline rush they must get near the finish line has to be amazing. this is the first year I've really paid attention but it was cool to see an american win the men's after such a long time.

if today wasn't a rest day, I'd go out right now!

I'm pretty consistently running about 3 miles with 10-13 minute miles. I can't seem to really get much better than that. Is it just a matter of mental strength to run faster?

Went for my first run in forever (year plus)... was awful. Had a buddy who wouldn't let me quit though. Ended up doing 2.5 miles wow.

Do you guys like running with people? I enjoy it more than running by myself, most of the time. Whenever I'm with people I feel like I have to run harder and push my endurance because I don't want to let them down, and I feel super rewarded in the end.

super pissed that @rjbman just started and he has a faster average pace than me.

thinking about signing up for a 5k at the beginning of next month. Kind of scared to run by myself though, wish I could find someone to go with.

my brother just ran his second marathon with a 3:32:18 time. so badass.

passed another runner the other day, we peace-signed each other.

Just signed up, dead period for track starts in like 2 days, so I probably should have waited for 2 weeks :p

Went running for the first time in ages (thanks @vgtbls). Didn't keep track of the distance, but halfway through the 15 minutes, I felt like dying/vomiting. A little girl nearby asked her dad, "Why does he have to run daddy?" and I thought to myself, "Why do I have to run?" The dad responded with, "For exercise, honey." Couldn't help but laugh and run the rest of the way home.

went running again for the first time in like 6-7 months yesterday, I jogged down to the local park and did 3 laps (which I know is very close to 5k) but the run there and back was pretty far as well, I walked part way back though T_T

today I downloaded some app to measure how far it was and went for a run again, it came to 7.83km (4.86 miles) and took me 42:10, which is not exactly speedy gonzalez but I'm pleased I could even run that far after so long sitting on my arse, I think I might just add another lap on next time which should take it pretty close to 10k, 10k is p much the distance I would like to be running

I will download the strava app next time

e: this strava thing sucks, the website is really glitchy, how tha fuck does it work?

Just started running again after about 3 years off. I used to do about 10k per week but then I had kids and blah blah blah...There's this lake near me that's 5k around which is a nice run. No time for that anymore so I'm stuck on a treadmill like a rat. I much prefer outdoor running but oh well. Sticking with 2 miles for the time being so I don't blow my old knees out or something. Felt like dying after the first time but the next 2 times I felt much better and improved my pace to 8.5 minute miles which is not too far off from what I used to average. Think I'll jump back up to 3 miles after a month or so.

I absolutely can't listen to anything while I run. It distracts the hell out of me and takes away from the experience for me. I guess I find running to be kind of meditative. I like getting lost in thought.
