My Nikes Paegasus won, hands down. Onclouds wearers did not persuade me.

How are you keeping at running these days? Woods? 4am?
10pm? Dips in a lake?
Pegasus runner here too... looking forward to try the 36s now that they are out.

Just running earlier, or embracing it.

Re: Runner's schtick

There's definitely something about running against the elements

The thing is - one sweats anyways, right? So..You either soak that shirt, or soak that shirt.

Didn't know there will be 36s, my 35s are amazing.

Re: Runner's schtick

Hmmm...the 36s seem narrower in the toe box, I wonder. 35s are quite wide which I realized I really needed for the sprint parts when running on toes and really relying on them.

Re: Runner's schtick

Wingate protocol is the best. And I actually gravitated towards this without knowing about it. It is so efficient. The only negative points are - one bulks up, yep, hesslich. And I should be going for 3x a week, while I have been doing 6x-7x for ever. The other routines bore me too fast.

Hope people keep up their routines, the heat wave is definitely more bearable with daily workouts.

Re: Runner's schtick

Bought me a new pair of Nike running shoes and ventured to go for regular jogs 2-3 times a week. Soon got bored with same routine over and over again and added some pogo jumps, lunges, interval training and other dynamic exercises to tedious walk up and down the forest’s alleys. Played tennis 2-3 hours a week as well. Didn’t forget about weight training with resistance band and stationary/outdoor bike training and entered doing mostly body weight exercises. Stretching routine has been included everyday for an Achilles’ tendon as well.

After two months of such a rigorous regimen, I have developed a plantar fasciitis and now I’m off from sports for few weeks.

Yikes! Sympathy...

Thanks for sharing, I will split my runs and weight lifting, alternate the days, at least. For a while. It is true how easily one gets overexcited. Nikes will do that to ya

Re: Runner's schtick

Ran for a magnificent 25 mins without stopping yesterday. That's the most since I tore a knee meniscus last September. Clever to choose a day with 35°C in the sun. I hope to keep up my run-every-2-days routine whilst slowly cranking up the kilometers. I haven't missed a run for two weeks now, but that dodgy knee is squeaking a bit. The aim is to go to the Parkrun in Divonne in a few weeks to see what I can manage over a 5k course.

Re: Runner's schtick

That sounds like an awesome achievement, Zappa. I will check out the ParkRun, does one have to enroll? I'd totally run that if I am around. 5k would be more than my daily dose, I normally do 2.5-4k. But if you want a running mate, I could do that. No sprints

My mantra is - no matter of the distance, laps or repetition as long as it's daily. I tend to overdo it though, since the endorphine kick is so sweet, easy and predictable

Your meniscus should probably be operated on? Are you sure about running?

I have the Pegasus 36's now. I can report from my opinion that they are a nice step up over the 35s - they are much lighter and seem midway between the 35s and a dedicated race shoe. I think the 36 is the best Pegasus update in years. I also have no comfort issues with them.

I'll be testing them out in Davos on Saturday and hoping that they are also a good lightning conductor since the weather is looking quite unsettled.

Re: Runner's schtick

I am sure you will run like a lightning bolt!

I will get another pair of Pegasus after my 35s die. They are great, keep my heels and toes firmly steady, even through my 22-23 pace sprint intervals.

She did but I must admit that I was a bit stubborn at times and hence effects!

I really felt about few months ago like in my 20’s fitness wise, but I took it down a notch and I shall be more careful in my 40’s.

Re: Runner's schtick

Physical activity is magic..makes you so happy that you forget to slow down at wise moments. I just don't want to be too buff, tbh.

Thanks! For the meniscus, the specialist I saw said that it should recover (peripheral tear). Fingers crossed.

For the Parkrun: You do not have to enroll, but you do have to turn up with your Parkrun barcode that you have registered for on their website. It's free, by the way.

I don't really need a running mate for the Parkrun. When I decide to race, it's full-on headbanging mode with no hostages . "Start fast and finish faster", as I used to say. But all that is far behind me, I fear. Last summer's effort was a 22:55 5k. I've run a marathon at a faster pace than that ... a long, long time ago.

It is not the time that counts, every 5k counts, no matter how fast one runs.

I had to put running aside for a bit, but swapped it for swimming and some body weight drills, the good news is - my omnipresent shin splints left.

Can't wait to run, though, again. Will defo check out the ParkRun! Hang in there and don't beat yourself over the time. It is irrelevant in the large picture. I slowed down my sprints when I relized I can do more of them if at slower pace. (18 instead of 22/23).

Re: Runner's schtick

To the fellow running fiends...I am envious of your tracks. Still gotta compensate only with body weight drills and swimming, will run in a week again. I like taking a break, cements my love for running.

Bad news is, the muscles bulking up ripped through my fancy French button up shirt and made a 6inch hole when I bent over. I think I will decrease the no. of reps.

You are either using far too heavy weights or doing far too many reps. It takes a hell of a dedicated training schedule to bulk up to the point of ripping shirts
