I'm getting bored doing my long runs at the C&O....got 16 miles tomorrow....can anyone suggest somewhere else to get this mileage that would be shady and not super hilly?? I don't mind if I have to drive a while! ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

i use to love running in DC.

Gambrill? Green Briar?

York heritage trail

They western end of the W&OD

Gettysburg. Waynesboro pa. Hagerstown. I assumed road, not trails.

Do you like technical type trails or smoother surfaces?

Sky meadows state park

Rails to Trails path at Big Pool. Semi shaded asphalt path. I'm going there tomorrow because the towpath is bound to be muddy.

W&OD. Can pick up in leesburg

Reach out to Billy Clem and run with the marathon training group

Western MD rail trail and loop with the Canal

Awesome! Thanks for a the suggestions! I'm going to look up a few of them!

What kind of shady are you looking for?

Saw you putting in some miles on Thursday at Baker Park.

W&OD you can pick it up in several places.

The capital crescent trail from betbesda barnes and noble to union station i believe is 16 then metro back

I second the capital crescent trail.

Thanks all!!! Decided on the W&OD out of Leesburg. I picked the sunny and hilly direction on accident (oops) but it was nice to have a change and I loved the hills!

I *may* have a MCM bib to transfer and I wanted to gauge the interest. My training is going great but my littlest training buddy isn't so keen on other people and I'm not sure I want to traumatize her or my husband so I can run a few hours with 30,000 of my best friends. ... See MoreSee Less

I'm having a lot of tension in my neck and upper back lately. This is not helpful in my long runs as I prepare for a half in early September. (because I also hold a lot of upper body tension when I run.) I'm wondering what the optimal timing is for a pre-race massage. ... See MoreSee Less

No closer than 10 days prior is what I've been told ..

I just read a great article in Runners World about pre and post race massages. I can't find it but will continue to look. 10 days pre race sounds right- nothing new too close to a race is what they say.

Triathletes: racing my first half IM next weekend in ME (freezing cold waters). Debating on the full (sleeved) wetsuit versus sleeveless. Any advice is appreciated! ... See MoreSee Less

 

Comment on Facebook

Lori, Vita, and Javier are the people I know who've done tri-athalons. Maybe they have advice.

Sleeveless !!

If the water is anything like it is today (61 degrees) a sleeveless is out of the question. Go for the full, but make sure you have some practice with the wetsuit prior to race day. www.surf-forecast.com/breaks/Old-Orchard-Beach/seatemp

If you wear sleeveles wetsuit you can always get the thermal arm sleeves.

I like full sleeves and personally I think it's faster. Roka has a new "Arms Up" design if you are worried about any restrictions.

Sleeved. It will be faster and you'll use it in more races.

Also try using 2 swim caps and ear plugs if the water is very cold. Hope you have a great race.

Training for my first half marathon and I'm having trouble taking long runs through my development. Can anyone suggest routes in Columbia for 9, 11, 12, and 14 miles? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Congratulations on training up for your first Half!!! It's been my experience (with the help of my coach and friend Michelle) that loops or out-and-backs are good for your long runs. So plan a 3 mile loop and that allows you to refill on water or hit the head if needed. For your longer runs (12 miles) I suggest running 3 miles in one direction, turn around at the 3 mile mark and return to your starting point (drinks, pisser) and then run three miles out and back in another direction. You've just completed your longest run and you're already home ๐Ÿ˜€. I'm sure others will chime in, great group of peeps and LOTS of knowledge and wisdom. Run in good health my friend.

Comment on Facebook

Jenny Peard Hartman

If I remember correctly it was several weeks. I had several different surgeries so I'm not 100% sure. I think it will depend on tumor size, etc.

About 10 days for me and I wrapped my breasts tight so there wouldn't be any movement when I ran

Thank you, ladies!

Not more than a week for me. It was a pretty quick recovery.

Another question: how long were you out of work? Surgery is on Thursday and I'm hoping to get back to work on Monday.

At least a couple of weeks. Mine was on the outside of the breast so I had issues with pressure from my arm. I only missed 2 days of work.

I have in 2008 and I may have taken 1 or 2 days off. Wore a compression bra. It was not a big deal. The radiation for 6 weeks made me tired but did not miss a run just a bit slower. But you need to pay attention to your body as every surgery is different. My prayers are with you.

Anyone ever experience lower back pain as a result of tight hamstrings? I've increased my weekly mileage quite a bit and recently have had back pain. Not tremendous pain, just achy...like a pulled muscle.
Suggestions?
... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

yes, and actually it was my SI joint.. a visit to the chiropractor helped.

Yes. I agree with Erica. Make sure you are stretching your glutes, hams, and lower back. Core exercises will help as well. Learn to love your roller.

And if that doesn't help and you need higher intervention, for PT: Rehab 2 Perform. For a great chiro: Donald Blake Berry at Berry Chiropractic. Dr Berry is much more Than I chiro. Very skilled with kettle bells and other methods to help improve core strength

down dog is a great way to streth those tight hammies

I think I had a ruptured disc a few years ago. The pain was very similar to what you described. When it first happened it was achy all of the time. Over the course of the next 1+ years it slowly got better. I never had it diagnosed. But it behaved exactly like google said it would.

Yoga, yoga, yoga

I have. I have a Piriformis Syndrome and I have did everything for exercising everyday....I think it's going away and I wear two compression shorts down to my knees and a wrap. That helps.

So, I ran 10 miles today. My right hamstring is definitely tight. I found a yoga for runners and did that before and after. I also rolled it tonight. I think my back is related to my hamstring.

Do you know #1 reason for back pain tight hammies

Thoroughly foam rolling my legs and glutes. As well as yoga/cross training helped me

Aqua jogging/deep water pool running. Can anyone offer any insight or helpful tips here? Should I buy a special belt or a vest to stay afloat, and if so, what kind? Also, what are my indoor pool options for Frederick county? Any input at all is appreciated! ... See MoreSee Less

 

Comment on Facebook

Ymca typically has belts that you can use. keep your running form and be prepared to feel exhausted ๐Ÿ™‚

I didn't post that I was "looking for recommendations." Facebook is getting smarter/creepier all the time!

You can have a belt-I can not tell you where to get it. I can tell you on your wall. There are all kinds of exercises. I have been doing it for many years. If you ask me, I can show you how to do it. It will make you a stronger runner!

I take a class twice a week that I believe has added to my cardio fitness as well as general core strength. The cool water and resistance has aided in recovery from runs as well. It's not a great substitute for running but a nice addition, if you have the time.

What is this? Is it for injury recover? I'm 6 weeks removed from my ankle surgery and did a little walking/swimming combo at the hotel pool.

The Frederick Y has classes it kinda of helps you get the jest of it they have the belts there . I enjoy the classes take them just for a change in the winter

I love my Aquajog belt and Water Dumbells that I got from Amazon. Since I have a pool at my house, I Aquajob for 30mins daily. It is great recovery from my long runs as well โ™ก

In the Fall the Ft Detrick indoor pool will reopen. They have under water treadmills.

This video is a good intro to it. I bought an inexpensive belt on Amazon. youtu.be/ZHg05bP8Z_E

I think there is a water running class at the YMCA. Not sure if it is drop in (you can pay per class if you're not a member) or a session class. There is a floatie belt that people wear (I think, don't quote me on this). I never did the water running class but I did the deep water aerobics class when I was pregnant.

Thanks for the input, guys! I appreciate it a lot!

This was on Jeff Galloway's site yesterday: August 14, 2017 MARATHON FAQ Question: Do any of the cross-training exercises help one run faster? Answer: Water running can help runners improve running form. The resistance of the water forces the legs to find a more efficient path. Put on a flotation device and go to the deep end of a swimming pool (usually at least 5.5 feet deep). Move your legs in a running motion that replicates how you run on land โ€“ no knee lift, extending your leg a little forward, feet low but kick out a little in the front, and bring the whole leg behind as the lower leg moves behind you. Start with 5-10 minutes and build up to 15-30 minutes. You can do this work out on a non-running day or as a second workout on a running day.

How can we verify if we are registered? Pretty sure I registered at the Frederick Health expo for the Frederick Half, but I don't have a confirmation. TIA

Be sure to click the correct event (5.22 vs Ultra Challenge) on the upper left of the screen. Entrants who were entered manually after signing up at the expo will not receive a confirmation - that's just how UltraSignup works.

Hoping for some feedback..
Going down the stairs this morning, I noticed a slight popping just above my right heel. There is no pain...just feels as if the tendon is catching then releasing...making it kind of pop. Walking and running feel totally normal...but going down the stairs or squatting and standing back up will make it pop.
I have no idea what this is or if this is something I need to worry about. Obviously I want to head off any major issues...any ideas?
... See MoreSee Less

 

Comment on Facebook

I have had the exact symptom you are speaking of! Curious what feedback ya get!!

I've had a strange popping just like that higher up in my calf (not in my heel, but more like lower calf/high ankle), and found it was just a result of really, really tight calves and feet. Lots and lots of stretching and foam rolling made it go away and it never blossomed into anything further. Maybe try rolling out your lower legs/bottoms of your feet if you can?

I think if there's no pain, there's nothing to worry about. I have a symphony of pops, grinds and crackles. But of course I'm a bit older than you. ๐Ÿ™‚ (Even if there was pain, I'd counsel not to worry for some period, maybe several weeks)

Thanks...it seems to have disappeared for now after a good rolling/stretching session.

I've experienced that once in a while. Agree with Lou King. Without pain there's nothing to worry about.

This has happened to me before as well. A couple of things that I have done that have worked include uninstalling the app and then installing it again and restarting my phone. Did you add your device back to Garmin Connect? If so did it sync?

Thanks! I uninstalled the app. Seems that they pushed an upgrade since the last time I synced and it's messing with a LOT of people!!! ๐Ÿ™

Try connecting the Garmin via your computer, to see if there's a software update that needs to be pushed to the watch. Lately, I've had to be sure both Connect is up and the watch is unlocked in order to get the two to sync.

Hi! Thanks! I have never connect my Garmin to a computer! I'll try that tonight!

I had this problem for a month or so. Very frustrating. Always had to reboot the watch and phone, but now it seems to be working better.

there's also this on the website steeplechasers.org/training/training-groups/

Welcome to the group!

The half and full groups are great for longer group runs, and it's totally ok if you can't make all the runs or don't have a specific goal race. Both groups are free to sign up for paid Steeps members, and both groups run Tues PM and Saturday AMs (usually). The Mon/Wed group is great, too, to run around town! And seconding David's mention of the trail group as well. We don't have regularly scheduled trail runs but you can usually find a group going out most weekends and scattered throughout the week. Welcome to the Steeps!

Welcome to the group, Mary!

Thanks for the info and warm welcome. I joined the group (paid). I look forward to running with the group soon. I'd love a long run on the trail or in town this weekend. I've been on the C&0 and hope the group gets out there soon.

Loved it! Perfect blend of rolling hills

Loved the course. First year running it and I would do it again

Loved it! Thank you Harriet. Also thank you to Mark Lawrence and all the volunteers!

Gotta love a downhill finish. Thank you - it was great!

This was a great course and I liked it better than last year's course.

It was a great course. The volunteers were awesome. The whole experience was awesome. And I really liked the cold, wet towels at the finish ๐Ÿ™‚

A veteran MCRRCer, but first-time FSRC WDFer, commented on the great organization of the event. It was for the volunteers, too. In other words, great RDing, Harriet!

much much better course even tho i only helped near John Godinet's station

I loved it!

Great race, well organized, well supported! Spectacular weather. Will do it again next year.

I loved the new route

Loved it too!

Loved the course today!

loved the course! the friend that I brought along said it was one of the best 5Ks she's ever participated in!

Liked the course very much even if all I could do was walk it..Good luck with your surgery

I really liked this route. Thank you Harriet and Lou for all your hard work. This is the best 5K!

First time running it, and it was good.

My first time running this race so I can't compare to previous courses but I liked it a lot!

Thank you Harriet, Lou, Heidi, Syble, Nikki, and all of the volunteers! This is always one of my favorite races. The supportive atmosphere of the training group adds to the experience. It's so much fun seeing everyone race morning.

When I finished I said to my daughter Elizabeth McKee how I liked it much better!

Great job!

Loved the course.

Loved it!!!

Can anyone advise on how to take a MapmyRun web link and put the same route into the app? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Once you save the route, copy the web address and paste it.

If you are talking about opening up the same route that you created in MapMyRun in the MapMyRun App, then I think you can just use the Send to Phone button/link on the Web site. Then, when you open up the MapMyRun App, you should be able to see and access the route.

Has anyone tried exporting the route and importing it into RunGo? I wanted to try out the audio directions to see how that works. I used mapmyrun for the Middletown 11 last week, and hate taking out my phone all the time.

To Harriet Langlois and the volunteers at the WDF...

My daughters and I would like to thank you for another fantastic Women's Distance Festival 5K! This is our very favorite 5K! Today, my youngest, Jacey fell on the course. So many women offered kindness and encouragement to her. We are grateful. This event is always so well-organized. I know the hard work that goes into it. Thank you very much!

Thank you Kim, and I hope Jacey's spill was minor. It was great to see you three out there again this year. Congratulations on your age group placements!

I should have clarified...Jacey is fine, a scraped elbow. (Perhaps not wise to run in brand new shoes.) I ๐Ÿ’œ how runners take care of one another!

Thanks for the thanks ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป indeed, Harriet does a fantastic job of pulling everything together!!! This is my third year volunteering and I always have fun, love being part of something that brings joy to so many. Looking forward to next year.

I think so! Should be the mile

I saw posted that it starts later than 6:30 though

Unless that was for something else this evening

It is the mile, and the optional work out is a 20 min track run. 6:30 @ Brunswick HS

Thanks

Yes it starts at 6:30. Not sure why there would be any doubt about this -- it is on the website events page steeplechasers.org/events/ and also on the competition page steeplechasers.org/competition/#sdecath. This is the last in the series for this summer.

Thank you Suzanne Mullin Koppanen for bringing this to my attention. This looks like a great event for anybody who loves to run because we all have injury downtime at some point or another.

Run those 5 ๐Ÿ™‚

Run!

Just do it! Rest another day!

Run those 5

Well.. Carl Pritchard-- the ladies have spoken..

Run those 5...5 feel-good, comfortable miles. No need to run hard. Heck, you probably walk at least half that doing day to day errands ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have over 100 so I can give you a few miles....LOL But seriously, if you choose to run today make it an easy run, especially if you are planning on doing tempo tomorrow. You don't want to do back-to-back effort days.

RUN!

The ladies are unanimous, looks like I will run like a girl

rrrrrruuuuuuuuuunnnnnnn

Run Carl Run!

Run today rest tomorrow

RUN!!!!

I was in a sort of similar situation, but I needed 7.5 miles. I am in no rush to 100 especially with a grueling ragnar coming up next weekend. Hope you got the 100 though

Before egging you on to run, a little context would be helpful. For instance, what's your mileage been like over the last 6 weeks, and what do you have coming up on the agenda. Maybe the most important question to ask yourself is this "Is what I'm doing right now going to get me to the start line healthy?"

Run that shit

Run the 5. You won't derail your running endeavors by running 5 miles.

Remember that the weekdays on our training plan are flexible. You pick which 3 weekdays you want to run. We do suggest resting the day before our long run if possible but that's it. This allows for "real life" and rest when your body needs it. Hope you ran if you felt good.

Well Carl?

Thanks for all of your encouragement. I just finished 5.02 miles at 10:18 PM. That is 100.09 miles for the month and 7 months in a row over 100

Yay Carl Pritchard

Wow! Very impressive!!!!

Question for the ladies out there who spend most of your days on your feet: what kind of day-to-day shoes do you wear? Ideally, I'm looking for something semi-professionalish looking, but a more casual style or sneaker is also fine. ... See MoreSee Less

 

Comment on Facebook

I like bobs or toms to wear at the school

Toms. I have Clarks brand of casual shoes as well. Skechers make great comfy shoes.

Rockport makes some really comfy "standing around all day " shoes for men. I'd look around their womens section.

In my hospital and clinic days I wore Clarks. Now that I have a little more income I tend to like Aetrex when I can't wear running shoes.

Thank you for the suggestions, folks! Appreciate it!

Danskos, all day long if I'm at work. Oofo slides if I'm at home.

Skeechers!! Have a dozen pairs of them- different styles and colors.

I wear hoka at work on my feet and movin all day 12 hours

Aisics and Danskos at the hospital or Merriels

Cole Haan Nike Air

Tieks- best flats ever invented

I require very comfortable and functional shoes due to foot issues. I live in my dansko clogs. I think they look great with dresses, skirts and trousers!

CROCS! They have some models that are actually stylish and they are REALLY comfortable for people who stand on their feet all day. I paid a pretty penny for Danskos before my Crocs and they did not work for me.

I have some nerve damage in my feet, called Morton's Neuroma. When I have flare-ups, Crocs are my go-to shoe.

Vionic! Podiatrist designed and stylish! www.vionicshoes.com

I am on my feet on a concrete floor for most of the day. While I've found various shoes are good, I use Superfeet insoles in all of my shoes which helps a lot.

I teach and spend time on my feet--I get the most colorful running shoes I can find!!

Danskos are the greatest!!

Vivobarefoot has cute flats

Clarks shoes have a wide variety of shoes that are both comfortable and look nice. I wear these shoes when traveling and on my feet all day at trade shows. Not one blister or foot problems in general.
