ive been trying to run of and on for 2 years!!
struggled with breathing for 12 months untill eventually got an inhaler from the docs.
After various injuries ive
over came pronation problems got insoles proper trainers etc
All the way through have struggled with my core strength becauce of a back problem which im still trying to get stronger but dosent seem to be improving.
I suppose what im asking is can anyone recommend anything to strenghen my core and back
I do try
and does it get better im struggling to keep up my enthusiasum to keep on trying.
I came accross a link on this website for Pilates for runners. Its in the training section I think, but if you Google "Pilates for running" the link to Runners World comes near the top. There are videos on the link as well.
Yoga is also great for breath work and stability. Good luck and even if you can only do a little, you are doing more than nothing! I'm still new myself and sometimes the motivation part can be a struggle...I always try and smile when running to remind myself that I am in control of it (not it of me!!) and that I enjoy it once I'm out there!!!
Thankyou Podifer and Red lipped runner. Ive found a pilates class near me and start next week!
Now I finally know where my back problem i will try anything that will help me get stronger so my running improves. I think im expecting to improve quicker than I am. Guess im just impatient
My sympathy with the back pain Debbie Pitford. I can't help there.
What impresses me is that you try so hard, and you come across as very genuine.
What i can say is, never give up.
Its hard I know, but keep at it.
I'm a binge drinker, and I can go onn a 3 month drikinng sessions. But the people in any of the threads are so supportive.
May I encourage you to find one that fits your needs. Perhaps, the new 2013 beginners running thread, or any other one that I know will be supportive.
I have started one myself is this your first marathon. It also helps discussing iinnjuries in there to (but I can't promise you that they can help), but sometimes chatting can be so helpful.
How are you today. I hope you feel a little happier?
