Try aikido, similar to ju jistsu, you might find the need for flexibility in some arts compromised by running. i would imagine if you can learn an art you'll find improvement of your whole body co-ordination. and you won't be as scared of falling over.
Hello, Last year i ran 47:55 for 10k whilst going through training for the edinburgh marathon (got 4:14 with approx 25mins walking in second half). the year before i did 48mins with just three training runs and an injury. Anyway i have drawn up a few goals for myself and one of those is to do a sub 40min 10K. i am trying to maintain approx 20miles a week with intervals and hills and so on. to the question, how long would i have to reasonably maintain this level of training, with occaissional races and 10k training programs of 8 or 12 weeks and recovery preiods? Will it take more/less than a year? 2 years? Is there any general advice on this sort of thing, i know there are many variables and such but there must be somthing to give me hope for that goal in the distance
Right, Doing the edinburgh marathon and ran 18 miles yesterday, did a 48minute 10k in the morning and a 2 hour 12miler in the afternoon. Mentally feeling ok but still a little daunted by the marathon. anyway have very sore legs toay as you might expect. How does training when you have sore legs affect your muscles? Does a little slow running promote muscle repair? Will it do more damage? With the stress rest cycle when is the best time to tax my muscles again? one day two days, when the pain stops? Thanks in advance James
