So glad it went well Dottie! We have been doing a new stretch in yoga which I find ridiculously helpful and uncomfortable at the same time. It's supposed to stretch your itbands. I have trouble with some of the itband stretches cause of hip soreness. Anyhow, cross one foot over the other and do a forward fold (flat back, bend in half at the waist). When your left leg is crossed over your right (left in front) you should feel it in your right hip/itband. And then reverse. Mike said he can't really feel it, but I found it really helps me.

I felt fine today, no soreness, but it came out in the run. I was going so slow towards the end, keep checking the timer on the phone and telling my self "just a few more minutes, just a few minutes" Then I started counting and talking out loud! Thank goodness there was no one around but at that point I don't think I could have cared less!
I am now sipping on a protein shake and eating a banana.
I wanted to do more exercise today but it's not going to happen. I'm going to take a shower, do the laundry then relax and watch the Biggest Loser on Netflix! lol
I have been known to count the minutes down or up depending on how I am feeling, a second at a time. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do.

Anything else you want to share (age, where you live, etc): I'm solidly in the 35-39 age bracket and currently live in Colorado. I'm married with 2 kids, DS10 and DD6. I'm currently at home with them, but will look for something part time (and hopefully fun!) once we move. I was a chef in my prekid life. We are relocating to NorCal this summer, which is why I don't have any more races on my calendar yet. I need to get through this move first! I hope to do a half in the fall and either the Tink or marathon weekend in January. I am in for the DL Half Sept 2013!
And for fun, favorite running shoe: Saucony Hurricane 13. This is a stability shoe for overpronation. When I get these shoes replaced I am going to get reevaluated because I can already see that my body has changed throughout this journey.

Hi Lisa! So glad to see you. And thanks for the shoe reminder. I think having shoes checked every once in a while to make sure you are still in the correct one is never a bad idea.

I did piyo and the bike today as well as some new things for my back that the trainer at the Y suggested. My calves are pretty sore from yesterday, so I definitely should have stopped a little sooner. Hopefully I will be able to run tomorrow.

Have a great rest of your Wednesday.

I didn't run on national running day! Boo! Hoping tomrun tomorrow morning.

What do your short runs look like? And how many do you do? I've been doing two short runs during the week and what I hope will be my long runs one weekend day. Is that enough? JG thinks so. My short runs are 4 mi.

Once things settle I fully intend on being more active here as it's my favorite (and only place I go to recently) place on the DIS.

What's the countdown to marathon weekend????

Hamstring?

I've been babying my left leg for about 6 weeks! During bootcamp back then I was pushing the prowler when my hamstring area felt strained - no 'pop' though.

I've taken it easy - no running stairs, walking most hills etc. - but I can't seem to get it back to 100%. It felt good enough to run some of the EEC and then a Mother's Day run, but then it felt sore again. Still taking spin class but keeping the resistance down to cardio, not hard-core fat burn.

Monday I had a deep tissue massage and the massuse said she thought my IT band is involved as well because the hip flexor area was really sore as well. Leg felt better for a day but is not pretty sore again after just some walking on the treadmill and a little time on the eliptical.

Any ideas for a recovery plan? Thank you!

where exactly does it hurt? does your health insurance cover physical therapy, cause it might be worth a visit just to see what's going on. Mike likes to joke that there is a universal indicator of women (and men) with itband problems. I did it all the time and we see people at races doing it. They walk around with their hand on their lowerback/hip just barely to the outside. Soreness that starts in that area is a classic sign that something is going on.

I have never had hamstring problems, though Mike has. And when he has rested it has improved. Do you do stretches for your hip flexor? Do you think they are two different issues? I have not heard of itband problems aggravating hamstring issues.

I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on tv, but here are a couple things which aren't hard to try. My itband problems were starting in my lower back. Tight back=tight glutes=tight itband for me. I also had a ton of hip soreness. In yoga we stretch our hips a lot. I mean a lot. It's her favorite thing to stretch. But not in anyway which the therapists told me to stretch. We do a lot of sinking lunges, butterflies, etc. That has really helped me. The physical therapist also told me to work on strengthening my pirifiormis muscle (which is one of the glutes). The problem with this--it really aggravated my lower back.

It's all kind of messy and complicated, but if you want to avoid the physical therapist, short term a yoga/piyo/muscle strengthening class or video might help.

I am in my 40s and if I want to keep running I have to baby my body or I pay for it. I didn't like it at first, but the piyo class that I take twice a week has helped so much with my recovery. Mike even commented yesterday how amazing it was that my back was doing so much better.

Oh, and I know someone on the BL thread had good luck with cortisone shots for itband problems. I think you have to go through an orthopedist rather than a pt if you want to go that route.

Good luck.

Thanks, Rose! On my way to the gym...I'll talk to my trainer and the PT out there.

Thanks for all the welcomes!!

Well, we arrived back from WDW at 7 am yesterday after driving all night. And guess what I did last night?

I ran 2 miles on the TM! Ahhh, it feels great to be back. I wasn't going to exercise but then I read it was National Running Day, how can I not? Lifted some weights afterward and hit the shower. I went from running 3-4 miles to running a half marathon in a week (Not the smartest idea, but I paid for it and made it!) so my short runs are apparently pretty short at 2-3 miles. Hopefully I can start getting up to regular 8 mile runs.

I've been running off and on for a couple years, but decided to get serious last Fall. Luckily I haven't gotten any kind of injuries, unless they were ones that I didn't realize I had. I've been very fortunate in my running.

did intervals got 1.6 miles in before DD started to complain. My pace was a respectable 15:23 but I'm not sure how long I can keep that up.

The new shoe saga continues. Day2 of running in them. My calves were really still sore even before the run. I watched a video this morning on midfoot striking and determined that on Tuesday I was probably running on my toes the whole time (like a sprinter) hence the very uncomfortable calves, though they probably would have been sore anyhow.

So this time I worked on landing midfoot on the lugs. It was hard to tell at first if I was doing it right and I was so very paranoid about heel striking. But I think I did pretty good. If I let me feet get in front of me I definitely started heel striking. The goal for running like this is a high cadence so I checked my cadence towards the end and I was on target (180).

All in all it went ok, but mentally it was challenging. I might have been a little whiney--you know, I don't want to run anymore, I want my old shoes, etc. I think I am just very anxious about injuries.

We did decide for our long run this weekend to wear our old shoes and give our legs and brains a break.

One thing that is interesting, the way these shoes are designed you can very easily see how you are landing on the sole. Whether you are pronating, suppinating etc. I am definitely still suppinating a little. What is interesting, before I lost the weight I was very definitely a pronator. So, just another reminder that if anything is feeling off while running it never hurts to have someone check your shoes and make sure nothing has changed.

Still need to update the first page. Hope everyone has a great night.

Does anyone else think it is a little ironic that National Running Day is followed by National Chocolate Ice Cream Day?!?

There is lots of time to work for the distance. It is great to get used to that pace now so your body will automatically go to it when you are running. My default pace is slower than that so that is my big item to work on this summer.

Glad they are working for you, Rose!

Is that cadence 180 per interval? I can't remember your intervals. That is something that I am working on is getting my cadence up to increase my speed. With my short intervals it is hard. Any suggestions?
