Running

Postby Lineage » Mon May 08, 2006 8:37 pm

Well, i've been running for a few weeks now.. just started back up with it.. shamefully quit but i have my eye onthe goal now.

I'm currently running 1 mile and plan to add on little more distance aobut 1/8 every week until i reach 3 miles. I was wondering if you guys would help me otu by giving me advice for running, such as i run in the morning now and tis alot betetr thnks to killua.

Any tips and advice would be appreciated.

I am able to do intervals.. but like 2 of them which i do to spice it up since i find running kind of boring even though, i get the excitement of living on a damned hill... but i guess its good to start out hard like that Now, that's funny no skin off my teeth.. thats just for some locational info.

Bruce lee lived on a hill. He ran up and down all the time. It's good stuff. 8) Endurance takes a long time to accumulate. Keep at it.

Hey mate, just a quicky... if it's motivation you're lacking, try running
to timed music tracks. I trimmed a few mp3s down to the length of a round and another few down to a minute for the breaks. It's worked wonders for me. I still make time for a long steady jog at the end of each week, which I feel is still important for overall conditioning.

I'm an avid runner. I've ran a marathon and numerous half-marathons. I also do "character builders" at the local track.

My one piece of advice: Don't stop.
Walking is not stopping, jogging is not stopping.
Stopping is stopping.

You'll get faster, you'll get stronger. Trust the training response.

Go the distance you set. Ross will tell you, the human body is much tougher than you think it is. You can complete any distance once you set your mind to it.
Si vis pacem para bellum.
Res firma mitescere nescit.
Believe in the training effect.

Ok thanks for the advice, id get to about 60% of the way and really start to feel it hard, i dont stop i might walk for 2 secs then start back up at a little bit past normal in hopes of getting to where i would have been. I only have to do this about maybe 2 times per run. Not bad since im not big on running, i hate it.. but it has to be done. (Got to run a mile on my first belt test) Ok, ill try the mp3 player trick and now that youve said it walking isnt stopping.

Yeah Bruce Lee:Expressing the Human Body is a great book.

Try not to get to a complete walk but a slow mo jog. For me its harder to start up again than it is to keep going. Good luck.

i uster run on treadmills and i find it a lot easier because you are always running at one pace wheres when you on in the street you dont know what pace you are at and you see to get out of breath easier

I think you would find it a lot easier to build up to 3 miles if you jogged really slowly.

Once you can do 3 miles at a slow pace you can gradually up the intensity. That is the way I would do it.

for a boxer hill sprints will be more beneficial than slow long distance running, as I said in another thread, sprints will mimic the stamina requirements for a fight.

I've had a couple of Muay Thai fights and sprints have greatly improved my stamina, i used to do distance over short sprints, but I'm finding short sprints especially hill work much better.
