Fitness StatementI started running last Sept of 2011 but before that, I started hiking and walking back in summer of 2010. On weekdays, I run on trail near my house and on weekends, I run Campbel Park. I like to start early on weekends at 5:30 am and weekdays is kinda hard because of work so my wife and I go around 6 pm/ 
Quote“"Nothing great happens when you hold back!"” 
Running AchievementsI have personal achievements. First off, is my health is way better than when I started 2010. I lost 25 lbs since then. I stopped using CPAP Machine for 6 months now (I used them for 10 yrs) and my sleep apnea is gone now.

did a stationary run for 3o mins while watching tv and finished it off with 3 sets of 15 reps each on my 15lbs dumbell to focus on my triceps, biceps and shoulder....don't want them to get too big that's why I only use 15 lbs :-)

Did a total of 6 miles at the trail. The first 3 was with the mask set at 3k feet and the next 3 was without and there's a time difference.....thanks to Bob for that extra push :-)

run Thanks Gerry for your support. I did smile big as I crossed the finish line, and tried to have good form for that stretch of 5 feet. Sounds like you has a great workout. Happy running and biking!

I welcomed the longer days by taking it slow today...Wifey and I went 6mi hiking to the very first place that we hiked 3 yrs ago....When you slow things down, you get to appreciate the things around you specially the one whose walking next to you

run Glad to have the longer days too!

Rode my bike for 14 miles to Fremont Older..this time, I set my gear into semi-granny on uphill...now my thigh is paying for it :-D

run Great effort Gerry.....I'm sure it was semi-pro on the uphill! You are inspiring me to get out and bike those hills as well as run and hike!!! Happy Hills
Kelly Van Zant Maine 3/7/14 3:41 pm

runnerWoke up yesterday with so much pain on top of my left heel and taking a week off from running after the doctor diagnosed that a small sac of fluid called a bursa that's located in my Achilles tendon is swollen :-( No shoes for few days, no pressure allowed, need to be iced and elevated...for short the doctor said, I could be in my couch for the rest of the weekend :-D http://arthritis.webmd.com/retrocalcaneal-bursa

runnerI have a question here in the forum. Who here switch from traditional shoes to Vibram Barefoot Running shoes? I recently purchased one and still getting used to it. Can you share your thoughts or experience. Thanks :-)
Gerry Elemento 8/10/13 6:24 am
runnerA close friend of mine made the switch two years ago. It took time to adjust. He may have overdone it at first and got a great case of plantars but persevered and now runs in them all the time. Uninjured for the past year. So gradual transition is best.
Richard Stiller 8/10/13 9:08 pm
runnerThanks Richard. That is what I'm dealing right now, a serious case of PF but it's getting better now. I guess I need to be patient on the transition.
Gerry Elemento 8/10/13 11:39 pm
runnerPF is serious. Don't try to run through it without taking precautions. Besides icing and ART there are ways to tape your foot to protect the fascia. I would alternate between regular shoes and the Vibrams. There is plenty of info on the web.
Richard Stiller 8/11/13 10:22 pm
runnerGreat advice. I wont plan on running with it until I'm well informed. For now it's going to replace my flip flops :-) I went to visit their website and has a ton of info plus the web on proper precaution. I bought a compression ankle sleeves instead of tape and will give it a try plus the recommended feet excercise.

runnerone week without running....having a runners withdrawal. I'm resting my feet after 4 weeks of 18-20 mile average....heel feel so sore. I always run forefront strike but after 3 or more miles, it switches to heel strike :-( bought Newton Momentum to improve my running style.
