Running Accomplishments:

Fastest Mile- 4:40 High School Track

Fastest Half Marathon - 1:40:15 Haunted Half Oct 2016

Short-Term Running Goals:

I've been a very active runner since High School ( I usually run 5-6 days a week) but I have yet to run a Marathon or any other competitive race since then. I want to get back into competitive running and hopefully have similar results like in High School. Although, last January 09 I got shin splints really bad and it took a good 6 months of rest and rehab to finally get back in the groove. I would like to run a sub 8 minute mile on my first Marathon but maybe I should just worry about finishing it first?   

Long-Term Running Goals:

I want to qualify for the Boston Marathon.

Personal:

I'm 42 years old and I'm married! I enjoy the outdoors (Hunting, Camping, Backpacking)

Russian champion tries Crocs, commits to racing a marathon in them

Nikolay Chavkin in the video below did 3x1000, first two in Adidas carbon-fiber models, the last one in Crocs. Surprised by the result (2:52, 2:52, 2:50) with the fastest interval done in Crocs, he committed to racing a marathon in Crocs if the video gets 42K likes and 195 comments (for 42 km 195 m, the marathon distance). Nikolay's current marathon PR is 2:14:00. The video was created by a Russian sporting goods store chain. Their moto is "more sports - brighter life", which we think is wonderful, and also deserves a Like. If you want to see a fast marathon in Crocs, go to the video and click the Like button. And make sure to share it with your friends.

Overall time: 30:10. First run in about a month and a half. I felt ok for the most part. Towards the end I was definitely sucking in air. I think riding the bike at the gym for that month off kept me in decent shape. Hopefully the weather will stay good and I can continue to get back in shape. I did notice my ITB band was acting up a bit in my right leg. I thought for sure a month off would of healed it. Does anybody know if riding a stationary bike would cause issues with the ITB band? I'm even still doing exercises and stretches for it.

Riding a bike shouldn't be too impacting, now. It may just be a little tight. Make sure you are rolling it often. In fact, heat it up with a pad, roll it, then ice it. It'll get worked out quick. Welcome back.

Any other outings? The temps are nice, but the air is poo.

After I ran on Monday I could hardly walk the next couple of days! My quads are sooo sore and tight. I think what happened was after I ran I stretched my quads really good and I did some excercises for my shin splints and ITB band. I honestly haven't done those exercises for a while. That may have caused the soreness but I don't know, I've never been this sore before. Maybe it is due to not running for a month or so but who knows. My quads feel better today but I think I'm going to lay off the running for a couple more days.

My ITB band didn't really bother me this week. I just felt out of shape and not a whole lot of energy.

You are running very well. You can definitely finish a sub 8 marathon on your first try. Shoot for one in the fall to give yourself a few months of base building before you get into the marathon training grind. If you are at a base of 20-30 miles per week, you'd be right on track for your marathon goal.

From Jonsie on Tue, Apr 27, 2010 at 23:04:20 from 97.126.249.207

Nope, no St George this year. Now my IT Band is giving me issues in both legs and that was due to Saturday's run. It seems the further I run the more I aggravate the issue. I'm going to try and really strengthen the hips and stretch like crazy.

Ya, the last couple of runs I've been pushing myself more than normal. I feel pretty good for the most part. My legs don't bother me that much if I keep it around 5 or 6 miles. Hopefully I can keep increasing my distance on Saturdays without having any major issues with my legs.
