Running
    #25534169 - 10/13/18 12:04 PM (8 months, 29 days ago)

Not sure if this is supposed to go in this forum or the Great Outdoors forum.  Move it if need be.  But anyway, this thread is about running.  Any runners here?  I started running 1-1/2 years ago and I'm loving it.  I run (mostly walk) a 4.6 mile trail once, sometimes twice, per week (when it's nice out). 

What kind of shoes and insoles do you guys recommend?  I already have a good pair of $50 insoles.  But as far as shoes, I have New Balance.  They were the cheapest and they're my first ever running shoe.  But now that it's obvious that I'm going to stick with this, I'm wondering if I should upgrade to a higher quality /more expensive shoe.  Looking to reduce the impact on my aging feet, ankles, shins, knees, hips, etc.

Running is for people that can't swim.

Kidding aside, is there a running-specific store nearby? They probably will be more than you'd like to spend, but drop the coin and go to those who know how to do it right. Your joints will thank you and you'll have confidence that you've got the right gear for you.

Since you have proven that this will be a long-term activity it will be money well spent, as it will presumably keep you in good health for years to come.

Good luck and kudos for picking up a healthy hobby.

That's GBG!  Yeah, it's definitely something that I'm going to continue doing.  There is a running store close to where I live.  That's where I got my $50 insoles.  I went to the store and the lady helped me figure out which ones I should get.  We got to the register and I thought she was going to say $15 maybe?  I almost fell over when she said $50 plus.  So I can only imagine how much their shoes are going to be.  I was hoping to find out which shoes are the best and then buy them online.

Right on. Get them on your feet to make the best decision and get ready for the hard sell.

Hey mang, I was going to start a running thread but found this one:thumbup:

I was hoping to see  if other shroomeritians were in to running? I've been at it on and off for a few years now, but I'm back at it and atm I'm running 5k in 28/29 minutes.

I'm looking to increase now to 10k, training 3 times a week (if my knees will allow it:shrug:)

How is you training going, did you get sorted for shoes?

Nah man, I still haven't bought the shoes yet, but I'm going to sometime soon.  It's too cold to run now.  I made this thread at the end of the running season just about.  But I'm going to get a good pair this year.  I really think my best bet is to check Amazon top rated list.  What do you wear?

Heres what to do:
Go to a running/sports store that does biometric assessments and gait analysis, lots of them do it now. Basically they put you on a treadmill and you run for like 30 second or so and they film your legs while you're running.

From that you can see the line of your leg from the hip to the foot each time it strikes the ground and can advise you of the best shoe to counter any gait issues.

For example I found out I have fallen arches on my feet, which makes my ankles bend inwards each time my foot hits the floor, this was causing  me to get shin splint which is painful af, so they recommend me shoes with arch support and touch wood I've not had splints since.

When they recommend you a shoe (itll likely be a really expensive top brand shoe) say you'll think about it and come back later, then go and find that shoe online for loads cheaper.

Generally once you find a shoe you like you tend to stick with that same one for the rest of your running days if you keep it up.

Nowadays I'm wearing a pair of under armour that I got in a sale in a sports store. They're just standard shoes but I bought some arch support inserts online for fairly cheap, under £10 (like 12 USD I think) and they have been really good. Not sure how they'll do if I start going longer distances though:shrug:

I used to run 60 miles a week when I was in my late 20's to mid 30's.Ran a couple marathons....one in 3hr:13 min. Anyway, be careful and don't overdo it. I wound up with a hip replacement at 49 yrs. old and the balls of my feet have some nerve damage. Also had a couple stress fractures during my time.

I tried all kinds of shoes but most of them would ware out quickly because of pronation. The brand that I found to be the most comfortable and longest lasting were Brooks...not sure if they even make them any more.

I loved that headspace zone that they call runners high...was addicted to it. It woluld start about 20 min. into the run when you worked out all the pains and kinks and then kind of went into cruise control for a while.

Damn, that's some miles dude.

Yeah, pronation is what I have, my ankle rolls inwards (i was told due to fallen arches) and i get the same my shoes wear out on the inner heel real quick.

I love getting in that zone, when i run a few years back that's all it was, one foot infront of the other, auto pilot to fuck. Did a half marathon 5 years ago and never run anything like it  since.

I'm definitely paying for it these days though:shrug: ligament problem in my right knee and, not severe, but some small amount of pain in my left hip. I love it though I've gone from 35 minutes and stopping to walk about 3 times for a 5k to 28.25 minutes last Saturday in about 2 to 3 months. Looking to do 10k end of March.

I ran for 20 years and destroyed my knees. Towards the end I ran at a track at Urbana High School made from recycled tires. I believe that if I always was on a surface like that my knees would be good.

Can I ask how old you are Brian (or how old you were when your knees fucked up)?

Also what trainers did you wear?

I'm 61. My knees were shot by time I was 38 or 39. I wore knee braces for about 12 years after that. I started running wearing Nikes and then New Balance.

I wish you guys would talk me back into running again.  All this hip and knee replacement talk really has me shook.  I've heard it before and now I'm scared.  I only run 6 months out of the year.  During that 6 months, it's 1 to 2 days per week.  4.6 miles of running, but mostly walking, because it's a trail.

1 to 2 days a week is perfect, a lot of my problems have been because I didn't allow enough time to recover properly.

On a positive note, I did a PB for 5k on Saturday 28.09, not my actual PB, I used to do it in about 25m but my best from starting up again recently.

Yeah, I think that's a good regiment ...running/ walking is a good way to go about it. Important thing is that it gets you outside and improves your quality of life....If it ceases to do this, then just stop.

I was much healthier physically back then but running became an obsession to go faster and further...that's where I crashed. I think running successfully depends alot on your physical frame. If you are on the heavy side of healthy weight, it is much harder on everything in your body.

A lot of people try running to lose weight which is not the way to go....you should lose weight via dieting first, then start running.
Good luck to you!

I haven't been out at all this week, my excuse is, snow!! It hasn't even been that bad we had like 1 day with a light sprinkling which then froze over the next day, it's been away for a couple of days now but it's still really cold.
I really should go out, my head is being a bit of a dick and I've been thinking about a lot of stuff that's not really beneficial to my wellbeing. Running keeps all that shit at bay, I'm a bit worried that I'm letting myself slip back in to old ways. That's not going to be good if I do:shrug:

So you live in a place that's cold in the winter and you still run?  How do you stay warm?  That's why I take off 6 months because of the cold.  It would be nice to be able to run, but going out on that shady trail with the frigid wind blowing in my face is pure hell!

Yeah, I actually prefer running in the winter than summer you soon warm up once you get going. If its warm in the summer I find it tougher unless I go early morning.

I did a 10k in June a few years back and about 2k from the finish people were pulling out and puking at the side of the road lol.

LOL, I wonder how I would handle something like that.  I have no idea.  But what I do know is that I LOVE running in 80 to 90 degree weather and just sweating my balls off.  If I don't come back drenched in sweat and halfway sunburned, I'm disappointed.

You threw up?  Jesus, that's something I've never done.  But mostly because I'm so paranoid that I'll have a heart attack from pushing myself that hard.

Got a PB for the course though and it was so fucking tough you have to wonder why you do it lol

Good god you're crazy!  :grin:  What's a PB?

Have you seen those people who make patterns in big cities for their runs?  Like if you're looking from above the city, the runs look like a wolf, or Star Wars characters or something?

A friend of mine got me in to running 4 or 5 years ago. Its something I never would of thought I would enjoy, but absolutely loved it. Only get time to go once a week, normally 4 - 6 miles on trails through the woods.
If you’re running trails too op, then trail running shoes are definitely the way to go.
I have a pair of Solomon speed cross 4 and have to say they are amazing.

Really comfortable with loads of grip, got these half price in an online sale so not too expensive either.

UE, thank you for the suggestion!  But what is the difference between a regular running shoe and a trail running shoe?  It looks like the difference is grip, which I'm not too worried about.  The trail that I run is definitely almost all dirt and gravel, but I've never slipped or anything.  I looked up trail running shoes on Amazon (best customer review filter) and the Solomon shoes you mentioned were the majority of the top 10 or 20.  But none of them were available in my size (US 13).

I think the main difference is that they are more durable to give more protection and support for your feet when running on hazardous ground, normal running shoes are generally more lightweight.
Also as well as the extra grip that you mentioned the sole is closer to the ground for extra stability too.
They definitely make running on rough, uneven and muddy surfaces a lot easier and more comfortable, I’ll be getting another pair when the salomons wear out for sure.

I ran long distance (5 mile) as a sport from age 12 to 15 and the leg conditioning remained a plus thru-out my later years ( I'm now 62 without knee or hip problems) so in my next life I'll add a upper body regimen during those years to see if the conditioning can be noted to be in evidence in the latter years when I skip the workout routine.

Got a PB again for 5k this morning (3 weeks in a row) cut 70 seconds off last weeks time so feeling pretty good  :hellyeah: but need to bump the distance up a bit. I've got 2 10k's I've signed up for next month :kittylaugh:

Look at you!  My legs got sore from me cleaning my blinds in the bathtub yesterday.  Cause that's how little I use them right now.  And you're out there setting records.

I never really have trouble with protection for my feet on the trail I run.  So the more I think about it, I definitely don't think I need the trail shoes.  Plus, the best ones I saw were the Soloman's and they don't seem to come in size 13 US.

Okay, I got my new running shoes.  Brooks Ghost 11 (I think).  They were top rated on Amazon.  Got them for $130.  I've been running with them 2 or 3 times so far.  I definitely love them so far, but I can't really judge how much better they are than my first pair.  The old pair was old and this new pair is new and I'm using the $50 insoles on top of the insoles that come with the new pair. 

But anyway, I'm back at it.  I definitely need to do more squats and heel raises a couple of days before running to strengthen up my lower body muscles.  My hips hurt like they always do after I start running again, because I don't have the shock absorbing leg muscles built up yet.

Sweet daps mang:thumbup:

I get the same in the hips, I definitely need a new pair as mine are very worn now.

I've had a couple of weeks just recently where I've not been in great mental form. Everything was a chore, I had no interest in doing anything and although I did a couple of 10k races my heart or head werent in it. Training went out the window and I've started to put weight back on.

I seem to have pulled through that now though and I've started training with a friend for a half marathon in September :crazy:

The weather is starting to warm up a bit though which I might find difficult but fuck it lol

Barefooted 🦶🤷‍♂️ Or Nike’s! Personal opinion barefoot is way way better for you then any other option. Shoes are man made. Feet on ground is nature made. But sense it’s hard to find somewhere to go barefoot besides the beach. I just stick with my nikes.

I went home for a week just after Easter then didn't do any training for 2 weeks. Did a 5k at my local parkrun last Saturday and really struggled. I was gutted and thought I'd undone all the hard work I've put in so far this year.

I've been out twice more this week so far just doing 5k's and found it much more comfortable, phew. So I'll do the parkrun again tomorrow and then next week see if I can get back to doing 10k.

Damn, you do a lot of running!  That's badass.  Random question, have you ever run while on shrooms or acid, etc.?

Haha, did a different parkrun this morning. This one has a hill and it's a looped circuit so you go up the hill twice. Fucking killed me nearly.

No I couldn't run on shrooms so I doubt I could on acid either. Even the next day I cant run so i make sure i dont be taking shroomz on Friday night.

Have you got some good weather for hitting them trails?

Love it.  Squats, dumb bells doing squats, and jogging or hiking everyday and getting ready for section hiking.  Have to give up some of my favorite substances for awhile but is well worth it. 

People call me an alcoholic and pill popper but I know my body chemistry and give it up when it warms up.  Then they are amazed when they see me jogging or in hiking gear....but, but, wait!  You can't do that!  You are an addict!

Life living in an apartment.  I miss living where I didn't have to deal with this shit and judgement.  And a wonderful subwoofer to work out to and sound system.  Whatever, I just have to live with walls where you can hear the conversation next door.  Modern day living and judgements, the click of the cans.  Blah.

I love being in shape, eating healthy, stretching everyday, dancing, singing, jogging, hiking and camping, and getting fucked up. Is amazing how fast with the right diet and exercise when one gets lazy once in awhile or preparing for summer/warm weather depending of course where on lives and travels.  Time for all things.  Planned 20 days of hiking the PCT at 12 miles a day and partying it up in Ashville two days beforehand but within reason, will be itching for the trail.  Where water is gold. 

Marathons, different animal.  Whatever, each their own.  My body feels fucking wonderful.

Running is cool.

There's what they say about brain chemistry, that seems to be true although I've experienced unwanted side effects from it before.

I had some interesting runs back during my stint of microdosing cubensis variety mushrooms. One already tends to have fun revelations whilst running, thus the two are of a naturally potentiating relationship. I think this is a direction that should be explored more thoroughly and in fact I was rather inspired to post an in depth review about it at the time. The experiences changed my view on 'sport' in general, especially organized varieties thereof, the aforementioned shifting from cynical to romantic, idealized by ancient stories of olympic games, blah blah.

If you're running mostly on pavement you're doing it wrong! Loosen up and forget about those insoles. Well since you have them why not, but NB is fine I'm still in my high school cross country asics. Although I'm also still rather in my youth, so listen to your body. But softer ground helps, so trails! BTW asphalt is softer than concrete, so if you aren't the weird guy running in the street into oncoming traffic, you should be!

One thing I noticed during my microdoses was how tense I was. What energy I was expending on nothing at all! How I was fighting my own breath!

I let the arms go loose, the head loll gently about its axis, the ankles spring loaded pivot points. The diaphragm practically falling open. Much better.

Well shoot I just read through, some legitimate concerns here. Yeah you can take running too far, but I argue that isn't the point of running.

In fact even on the note of brain chemistry, they say long distance running will even begin to release stress hormones after a point. But that's just the fact, maybe then this helps condition your body to regulate stress hormones better in situations that don't really need it, or only need a little, I don't know.

And speaking of conditioning, one poster had it spot on in that your peak physical condition in your prime directly correlates to your physical capacity in your aging years, so listen up young folk. A cool book about it I can dig up, one with references throughout that I swiped from a university library, not one of those opinionated quack books.

Other than that, I'm of the belief that diet plays an important role on the function of the body in later years, but nobody wants to talk about that! Plus I've fallen off in that area as of late, so I don't have the right.

Bumholio, the weather has been great and I have been hitting the trail once per week.  Every now and again, I even run on the street near my house if I eat something with a lot of calories.  But no matter what the weather is, I'll be running at least once per week until November.

"so listen to your body. But softer ground helps, so trails!"

Yes, I do both but trails, plus the added benefit of nature and wildlife, rivers, etc. I agree.  But I don't mind hard pavement, tracks, or streets.  I have shoes for everything.  My closet is stuffed with them and I use all of them besides my cleats this summer, lol.

Some women ran a marathon in high heels as she was a normal marathon runner and her boyfriend made a joke about doing it.  So she trained at night when no one really noticed and did it. 

Runners/long distance hikers for the most part are fucking determined people.  A lot of discipline.  Many if they feel challenged, they will do it. That competitive side as well, I love it.  Like when hiking for days on end and it is just like, get the fuck out of my way you fat lazy bastards!  The obese ones like the clogged arteries they have that just get in the way.:mad2: 

I sound like an asshole but it is just an annoyance.  Enjoy your summer.

Yeah pavement is alright but you can only take so much

But long distance hiking makes so much sense to me if there's context. I want to hike the australia west coast with an 8'6 surfboard :'((

Some of the best point waves everr, now that's incentive! Idk about hiking for weeks on end just for scenic views and risking your life though, but anything that makes the ol' blood move I say.

98 degrees and whatever that measures to there. 

Great walk.  Not much jogging, had shit to carry. Not drugs.  Amazing how much one can sweat but I feel, entering 2 a.m I could jog for an hour. 

Is a wonderful feeling when there are no cars and one can just jog in the middle of the street or wherever.  Everyone is sleeping till the workday.  I don't have to work. Lol.

Life is good.  So is eating well and being fit and this is written by an American.
