Training for 2 Events

Posted: 27/08/2014 at 22:12
Doing exactly the same. Get your running sorted over winter, keep your cycling and swimming ticking over nicely. The cross training will do you good. After the marathon, keep your running ticking over and focus on the other two. Is my advice, anyway.

I'm no doctor and difficult to say what it is without knowing you but these are common causes. The warm up mobile stretching may help your shins but also the rest of your legs.

Try specific warm ups so mobilising your leg muscles beforehand - leg swings focusing on the glutes, circles with each foot, calf raises etc and see if they help.

How did you choose your trainers? Are they old and in need of replacing? It may be you will need to look at shoes better suited to your feet.

Are you warming up and cooling down properly? Wearing decent shoes? What sort of time is the 2 mi taking?

LMH I love your PB - fabulous.

Ale, I got very lucky as the rain stopped as I went out on the bike. Perhaps between finding out my sports bra was broken and my chain falling off, the Triathlon Gods thought I'd had enough bad luck! It was horrendously windy though especially passing the IWM by the footbridges...

I need some direction!

There are loads of plans. Couch to 10k is pretty well respected or you can create one on here.

Weights wise, are you sufficiently uncomfortable the next day that you struggle to run! DOMS will mean you have less to give. Also, you may not be giving your body sufficient time to rest depending on how often and the intensity we're talking. Some strength work is good though but make it specific if running is something you're serious about.

The low carb thing - I'm not personally a fan of this sort if thing for athletes - opinions differ. You may want to think about low GI carbs on run days at least to help fuel and recover. Just puck your carb carefully (crisps - no, sweet potato/brown rice - yes!).

2 runs a week

Are you aiming at a half marathon I take it? What are you doing for your other run? Are you cross training inbetween?

Advice on improving speed and upping mileage

Posted: 17/08/2014 at 21:44
Not been there myself (possibly to come next year) but you seem to be doing the right thing in terms of taking it slowly. Did you run through pregnancy? I'm not sure I'd do much speed work yet but perhaps in a few weeks would add fartlek intervals, steadier than what you're used to at first and listen very carefully to your body!

Have you got a plan you could follow? Say the couch to 5k or prob better the 10k version? Just to ease you in steadily. Alternatively, if money allows, could you book a session with a coach who is experienced in post-partum running and can advise.

Be interested to know how you get on as we're thinking about trying late next year and one of my big worries is how I'll cope cutting down the phys!

Lyrics am I being blind? Can't see them although I doubt I'll know them...

LMH hope the arm starts to improve. Did you sneak onto the turbo?
