Re: Jogging technique?

so, welcome to the wonderful world of running. 30mins, 3 times a week, will make a significant difference to your health.

Plus, Switzerland is a great place to enjoy running and the outdoors in general. Come end of March, the weather will be fantastic for those outdoor runs, and in summer, enjoy running in the woods.

Re: Jogging technique?

Absolutely! I love to run in the cold snowy weather, I get an extra thrill running through virgin snow on the woodland paths, just my footprints, and maybe those of a deer.

Here are a couple of photos taken on one of my runs, just before Christmas..

Re: Jogging technique?

tend to agree, but for beginners might be a challenge. I love running outside, as long as it not too cold, like colder than -10.

Re: Jogging technique?

For anyone running indoors on a treadmill while the snow and ice are around, it's very important to raise the incline a little, 1.5 or 2.0 percent should be fine on most machines. This better simulates running outdoors and will also save your knees from taking a lot of abuse.

Running indoors isnt great so try not to get injured by the time the sun is out!

Re: Jogging technique?

Curious to know why running on the flat treadmill gives knees a problem? Running outside on the flat doesn't. (OK, not in CH, too many hills to ever find "flat" but in a flatter country!!)

Running on a flat treadmill is more akin to running downhill which is not good for the knees when you start out.

A slight incline on the treadmill gives a more realistic feeling of real running on the flat.

Snow's also a problem - I was running in foot-deep snow on Saturday and must have veered off the "invisible" path - I ended up chest deep in snow in what must have been a ditch.
Either that or you are really really tiny.

Good luck OP.... get out there and enjoy.

Re: Jogging technique?

I'm planning to get back to my regular jogging routine - mindset being triggered by willingness to stop intensified calories and alcohol intake lately. Regarding the jogging intensity to get most out of it at minimum effort, I have come across this interesting read:

Light jogging is healthier – and safer – than intensive exercise, scientists have found.

A study shows that jogging three times a week is best, for between 20 and 48 minutes each time.

Jogging three times a week is the optimum level for extending life, with light joggers going at a slow or moderate pace having the lowest rates of death

Re: Jogging technique?

I used to be a guy who believed in 1h session 2-3 times a week but I'm willing to try out a 20min 5 times a week routine.

Yeeh! That's exactly what I do now, in fact I've just got in from my first jog of the week.

I used to run 5 times a week for over an hour each time, but I was too obsessed and have gradually cut back.

Getting a little older makes a difference too.

Re: Jogging technique?

Just don't run out of the house half asleep in the morning, I am still treating my horribly scraped knees, I thought I would contribute to the (low) rates of death of light joggers. Ugh. I do like to go running when the world is still asleep, my bad.

It is the best way to keep high energy levels through out the week, I tend to run more than three days a week, but any run is better than none. I did 6x 20 min but my ankles started to protest.

We could post here some good running tracks, for those who like to run to music.

Re: Jogging technique?

We could keep this thread for pacting and accountability keeping..

What shoes are people happy with? I gotta get a new pair to alternate. Reeboks were so far my favorite, light and netty, and so flexible. I need to get something heavier for the fall.

I love my Asics. I believe they're the Kayana model, or something like that. And Spotify is a lifesaver for various playlists depending on the mood of the day.

I'm just now coming back from a repetetive shin splint injury. (I ran with the wrong shoes and without my custom insoles for pronation). It was a terrible mistake that I've been paying for over several weeks.

To be honest, when I started jogging, years and years ago, I just got myself a decent pair of running shoes, ran out of the house, jogged as far as I could, then gradually built up the distance over time.

No, seriously though I wouldn't recommend just going as far as possible and slowly adding onto it. You could injure yourself depending on your fitness level and previous experience.
I did the same thing, but since the furthest I could run was 200m, there wasn't much danger of injury.

I did manage to run 5k recently after only a handful of training sessions (because I hated running so much). I got sufficient fitness by swimming and cycling instead.

I did try the couch to 5k programme, but I found it too boring.

Re: Jogging technique?

Just got back from my 20min routine and it feels awesome. Cold shower afterwards and few glasses of still cold water. Absolutely wet clothes hanging outside can be a proof of intense workout.

In terms of shoes, I love my street running pair of Nike's. But I also try to alternate with Babolat all-court tennis shoes for some technical exercises usable on the tennis court during the match, while I'm still on the forest trail. Stuff like sideways steps, backwards steps and skipping.

Currently, I run only alone because of my new location based in Oftringen since July 2017. I would be more than happy to join a regular group. It's good for getting together and motivating one another. Easier to avoid a cheating effect as well.
