Beetroot juice

Hi,

Have to conduct a report on the possible benefits of beetroot juice.

Have any runners (regardless of distance) found any benefits ?

Many thanks

Mitiog : about 6-7 every run. Am going to keep up gym but for conditioning and when ice outside when winter comes go for some runs on treadmill and couple of classes . Am injury prone. But for the social element aswell ! ...  Have a programme review at gym soon , so will get his help and advice on exercises and a few weights that can help improve my overall performance.  thanks  

Rob W1908 : thanks link was very useful. Agree with the cross training. Is meant to be good for you and can help improve with performance. I would choose the bike over rowing. But both maybe good. bikefor legs and rowing can help with arms and shoulders. Yes agree, as would make a nice change from the high impact from running which can stress the body. 

 What sort of distance(s) would you recommend ?  ... 

Dr .Dan: Thanks

Hi        (apologies in advance for really long thread ! )

I'm fairly new-ish to running. Hence, experience runner required. Hvae recently injured my foot by overdoing it (metertarsal liquid relased) and not progressing with running. One could say 'like a bull in a china shop' lol ...

Use to play football and netball etc when younger. I currently attened the gym reguarally and do BODY ATTACK and a few other classes each weeks or every now and again.

My aim is to successsfully cross the BUPA GREAT SOUTH RUN IN 2013 for I think the 10 miles.

Then If all goes well then possibly a Marathon the following year , then who knows ! .... 

I believe I can achieve this ...  

The only barrier as it were, is a 'programme' as have limited knowledge. 

1) How long should I run for each week?

2) How frequently should I run? 

3) What should my distance build up be. So week 1 7miles then 8 , 9, 10 and so on ... ?

4) As part of my gym work outs should I do lots of weights / strength exercises ?

5) Would: 2 classes at gym (each are approx 1 hour)  AND 4 specific running weight / strength training sessions of 45 mins each at gym AND AT THE MOMENT FOR THE NEXT FEW MONTHS 3 RUNS A WEEK.  ????????

Is that normal / okay to do without over training and getting an injury.

or is there anything else runners could recommend. 

Please helo. 

Many thanks

 

PLANTAR FASCIITIS IN ONE SPOT!

Posted: 13/11/2012 at 17:30

I had plantar fascitius. What a pain.

Problem occured after a drunken night at a party by running around in loose converse (trainers) . Torn the tendon. OUCH!  I learnt from that mistake!  I could not do my full gym, classes and running for a few months. As pain occured on and off.

But gradually built the intensity up overtime. I recovered VERY quickly. By doing some strenghtening exercise that my physio showed me. Also, ensuring I fully stretch at warm up and cool down.  And the biggest factor that I belived helped me was changing my trainers to ASICS gel cumulus 14 , a good quality trainer.  Also, I'm not completely sure but I feel that my age may have influnced my recovery time. Am in my late teens  

Hope I have helped
