Day 2/50

2.75 miles of running on a gr8 trail
.25 rest/walk

Day 1/50(sry I forgot)
4(400m) track work:):):):)

Btw listened to "the chase" on spotify running playlist and can I just say that it was legit AMAZING!!! It sounded like the Arrow theme music(as if Oliver's abs aren't inspiration enough) and also has some nice marching snare, which is much appreciated considering I'm a drummer:) totally recommend it! Have an awesome day and love u guys👊🏃

Looking for some tips on how to increase speed.  Currently, I embarked on a 50 day plan to improve speed, doing 500m intervals - sprints followed by relaxed run, repeated over 5k.  Any views on intervals?
 
With 50 days to go until my second Wings For Life World Run, I have embarked on a journey, to improve my running speed and beat last year's 16.7 miles in this race...
The focus will be on 3 aspects:
1. Injury prevention and core strength
2. Exercises to improve strength and speed
3. Running - POSE method and interval training similar to what Emil Zatopek did in his prime!

More about my plans can be found below:

Hi Guys... I'm Usually doing that for an approximatly 15Km Running & walking distance. First, I correctly make gym & fitness to unstress my muscles & adapt my mental "to a ready and operational state".

This has to be made everydays (morning if possible), around 30 and 60mn. It's interesting to make a general program and some personalized ones able to accentuate your job on different body areas;

This way, the starting day, you don't need to work too hard on your fitness program (just around 15 and 30mn, doing it when correctly breathing and relaxing);

When you start, you can walk during 1km, just managing your speed by speeding it up slowly (you'll be around 10 & 12mn/Km; 6 or 7 km/hr); This target is not yours for sure, but :

I live in Africa, Gabon, Central Africa & Tropical Climate; It's hot, I drink a lot of water and  try to manage as best as possible all my body to access my targets. So, you can try to, just once.

After the first km, you can start your run... That is the same in F1 to preheat engines and tyres (Lol...!); Don't speed up to fast... do it progressively (500m as you said and walk the necessary time, afterwhich you start to run again);

Runkeeper will tell you all the necessary informations (distance, etc...) to compare Km after Km your progression. You will see that you will rapidly going under 10 and 9mn/km; more if you can run faster and it really depends on the distance you want to or can walk and run a day, on the time you are able to run a day (you have to fix these targets accurately); Try some tests before starting your Journey to verify all your personal data;

Then, each day and each time you will end your "run", take 10 or 15 mn for breathing and not less than 30mn to unstress all your muscles and joints; leg muscles are very important to avoid cramps.

Drink a lot and try to eat well... !

Friendly Yours, Laurent B.

Enjoy the fitness benefits of a run or walk, and a celebration at One World Trade Center

As always I am very grateful and thankful to be apart of google circles and Google communities! Enjoy reading posts from circles and communities I am a member in. Grateful in receiving advice & training tips from and always like returning the favors when opportunity presents and commenting on posts too!! As a runner I do enjoy training and running in spite of many odds & difficulties keep on running and marching forward!! I am not big on words and the very quiet type of person and as well the shy type of person. But let the training modes and work ethics and hard working actions speak for themselves actions always speak louder always have & always will!! Will keep on running & training on behalf! I am not an elite or a master or Olympic runner. I am not a master or legendary or a professional or champion runner. There's a 1000% chance that I will never be!! That's okay with me and I can live with it & I do hereby accept it & I am cool with it! However!! I will not let it deter me & won't let it stop & will not let it prevent me from running & training! Won't let it stop me from being the best that I can be not only as a runner but person too! Will keep at it! Happy Running to all Runners!! Keep on Running & Training!! Will do the very same!!

A non training day today for RM. Will give body an extra day if not two after busy weekend into early part of week with race & heavy workload at job. Have ran up to this point in month of June limited training activities 6 days out of possible 11 days chance opportunity including half marathon on June 7th! Have ran 109 miles up to this point & ten training runs in month including a recent triple waves or three runs 34 Miles prior week. Have been resting body since race day June 7th with exception to work from running. Have ran some 1'876 miles in the 2014 training campaign! Looking forward to resume running and training very soon! I admit I am one of those and reckon other runners can relate to this in similar fashions that dislikes missing training time or training practices! It does drive me a bit irritable at times. I am same with with working on job sites I don't miss work and don't like missing work days it gets me edgy and irritated not keeping busy. Of course at no faults of own behalves in many degrees. I am a keep it simple type of person but productive and efficient type I am not fancy type at all not my expertise and not in my league. Even if I am solo on tasks and projects attending them. Over years flying solo has more than skyrocket attending tasks on own and doing things independently too. Which is a very good thing overall in longer runs for RM. Safe to say I am very aggressive & very feisty about being independent and taking care of things & responsibility on own behalf. Am very strict and very aggressive regards to this. Pretty much how I have grown and mature over last numerous years! Which is very good and a great thing. Still a working progress to improve on!

Despite many difficulties here coach Lucille with training levels I do enjoy running and training even if it means going off the charts or to insanity and extreme levels. It's difficult to run 1500 miles in a year. Even harder to run 2000 miles in a year. Much harder to run 3000 miles in a year. Far greater difficulty in running 3500 miles in a year and off the charts in running 4'000+miles in a year. Hard to hit these mileages here my friend. But to reach these mileages in multiple years & consecutive years and to do it well coach makes it stand out even more. There are some runners who do run more miles then I do. Not sure how many do but I am certain they are out there scattered around the globe. Even if limited running races and restricted with limited sources and resources and training solo 95% of the times. I reckon what I do and currently do not sure how big of an impact it may be to inspiring and motivating others the training I do. I honestly couldn't say Coach. I have no clue.

Is it time we update the background photo for this community? :)
No offense to anyone, it's just that it might be fun to see something new.

Maybe we could have a photo submission contest? Or something along the line. What do you think,?

Keep on trucking and running!! Best wishes to all in 2015 year! Wish all the very best in pursuing their goals too! Happy Running & Happy Training!! Let's Do this!!
 
I do enjoy training and running and working hard in improving the running & training that I do. As I get older and gain more experience in training I can only expect things to only get tougher and harder! It comes with the territories. For month of January I'm looking at about 175+miles of running accumulated in the 1st month of 2015 season despite being severely limited with bad weather & hazardous conditions! As my 20th season of on & off running & training continues to develop as always take it one day at a time and one mile at a time and go from there! Over the last 5+training seasons I've average over 3'150+miles of running per year. Have ran 3'000 miles or more in each year for 5 consecutive years in a row 2010 thru 2014 seasons!! Unknown what race events I'll do in 2015 year its unknown at this time but main focus is concentrate on training and running. Been running on & off for 20 years and have ran more than 35'000+miles up to point in training career! Good lord willing RM looking forward to more running and training!! In spite of many difficulty and odds severely stacked up against me and more than 90% of the training and running I do is solo or the lone wolf RM is doing just fine & dandy! Will keep at it!! I am not an elite or a professional or an Olympic runner! I am not a world class runner & I am not a legendary and not a master or not a champion and I'm not a crowned champion runner! There's a 1000% chances that I will never be and I will never reached those caliber types as a runner! That is okay with me & I do hereby accept it! I'm okay and cool with it! And I can live with it too!! However I won't let it deter me & I won't let it stop me from running & training and I will not let it stop me from working hard so that I can be the best that I can be not only as a runner but person towards others too!! Happy Running & Happy Training to all!! Very Best wishes to everyone & everybody in pursuing their goals short & long term! Keep at it!! Keep on trucking! Will do the same here!!

Good afternoon!! Howdy!! Reggie not for One & not for Two! In this case Reggie not for Three or a Triple either. RM not for Quadruple or for Four either! In this case RM goes for cinco! RM drive for Five in Special Operations training and tactical modes training today!! 1st wave am hours ran 12 miles following up with 2nd wave back to back more running and speed and foot work including strides and glide running 4 miles more. Then RM rested up body for a few then proceed with 3rd wave via foot mobile to a local mini mall of stores some 2 miles from my house to buy several of items and supplies! Then proceed with 4th wave walked back home same route 2 miles foot mobile this time with weight backpack that I put purchased supplies in for easy carry it probably weighed 60lbs then had a smaller yellow grocery cloth bag on left arm an additional 10lbs then I headed home. Once home took a breather then grabbed my street hockey gear and hit parking lot for more training including running and stick handling lasted about 75 minutes the 5th wave! Five waves of training done today by Storm Runner RM running & walking and more training each with its own degrees of difficulty for body mentally and physically! Levels ranges from Super Hardened thru Veteran to possible Extreme tactics ops levels! Body feels pretty exhausted and stiff and some soreness but overall RM is good!!

Storm RM 17 miles training early this morning! Some where in neighborhood of running around 160+miles in month of June!! As we approach the midway point of month! About 1'930 or so miles of running in 2014 training campaign!! As always working progress to improve as a runner and training regiments! Still lots of homework to do and to get done!! Yeehaw!! Special Operations training I relate at times refers to running & training I do is non military related and non affiliation of military and not training for military!! Training levels ranges from levels of difficulties from basis thru hardened thru veteran thru insanity to extreme levels. So do waves of training from one to three to as many as five to six to rare occasions seven waves of training!! Ranges and varies randomly! Generally the more waves done the greater difficulty levels for my body mentally & physically. Random times to keep me on tippy toes & heels and a reminder non planned waves of training last minute or last second. Walking is part of training so is use of dumbbell weights or landscaping and snow removal on job sites and for friends and family part of special ops tactics regiments. There are other tactics I use walks & running with 20lbs & 30lbs & 40lbs backpacks on shoulders. There are other tactics I plan to use in training including hockey equipment a hockey stick and hockey ball & puck for balance and cardio and endurance and agility and speed training as well as maneuver capabilities. And coordination and concentration purposes. Its still steady working progress to advance and adjust training regimes!! Yeehaw!!

Enjoy running and training! Only expect things to get harder as I gain more experience as a runner. Training over years has advance and RM has gone explosive with training regiments at times!
 
I have ran 1'470+miles in 2014 Training Campaign season!! As I get older & more experienced in running & as a runner I expect things including training regiments to only get harder & tougher & rougher! Regardless I enjoy running & training even if some of the training is a bit insane & or off the charts I currently do. Started running & keeping logs in 1995 & been going on & off since then! We all do randomly encounter tough times trials & injuries & other ailments we push through them as best as we can to learn from experiences good or not so good ones to help us become stronger mentally & physically over time! Training levels & increase of training activities has advanced over the years & gone from there! Running track & cross country in elementary & middle & high schools. To running road races 5ks to 4 milers to 10k races to 26.2 miles! Over last 12yrs its increased RM been solo when training & running regiments since I graduated high school back in 2002. Over the course of 18+years in on & off running I have ran more than 32'000+miles! Will turn 31 years old in month of August I have ran lots of miles!! Good lord willing of course I am just getting started here! I look forward to more running!! I still have lots to learn & lots home work to do to be a stronger & better runner & person in daily living too!! As always there's always room for improvement! If all goes well & Good Lord willing goals pending chasing a 2'000 miles running season & still pending & even sweeter deal if I am able to blast 3'000 Miles Mark in running for 2014 Special Ops season!! If I reach and smash 2'000 miles & or 3'000 miles marks of running in 2014 training campaign it would mark the 5th straight year in a row accomplishing milestones! ( still pending goals!!) Recaps of archived prior seasons! In 2010 I ran 3395 miles & 2011 I ran 3'828 miles & 2012 I ran 4'735 miles (A personal best!) In 2013 I ran 3'813 Miles! So far in 2014 has ran 1470+Miles close to hitting 1500 miles of running about 20 miles or so to go!!! I've been close at other shots & multiple attempts of 4000 miles of running for year outside the 2012 training campaign!!

Runners knee.
After getting through shin splints and it band pain by switching to chi/evolution running...
Trying to strengthen my knees after getting sore knee after 8km plus runs. So just starting with a few squats after a run and my knees both feel it.
So does one take a break from running to build up tolerance to squats and lunges or just do only 3 lots of 4 squats rather than 3 lots of 10 after my runs?
Ironically the knee pain might be due to not following the 10% rule but I want to do a marathon next year.
