Nike fuel band and the Nike running app do wonders

The app does, yes :)

Running is my thing. Great way to listen loud your new tunes. Good for the waistline. All wins. Getting yourself a GPS watch is a good way of staying motivated. After five years of running I now need to run. Don't know why but I'm glad I do.

Can anyone recommend some decent headphones for running?

I've been using the standard apple ones (I know) but once the weather warms up and I can't wear my beanie down over my ears anymore they're just gonna drop out after about 2 paces.

Don't wanna spend mad dollar so Brian need not reply


Klipsch S4 - never fall out and really good sound quality. They do an S3 as well if you want them a bit cheaper.

Sennheiser for me, they never seem to fall out even when sweat is pouring off.

Any recommendations on decent running shoes? Suffer with my heels (technique must be a bit shit I guess) but need an upgrade on my Asics anyway

I used to get up and do 5k before work then do a 10k at the gym after work. Dropped out after I got a job that had stupidly long hours and also ruined my knees from too much running. Now I'm 2 stone heavier and my running, when I bother, is total shit.

Have had some amazing runs in stunning scenery while I've been travelling though, running along rivers in Cambodia and Australia have been highlights.

Running seemed to sort my knees out, definitely strengthened the joint. I'm off for a run at 6am in the morning. The pic doesn't do it justice but this hill is a fucking killer, it's sandy and gets really steep towards the top. I used to do a 1.5 mile figure of 8, doing this hill twice each circuit and did 4 circuits. Tomorrow I know I will struggle to complete 1 circuit.

Anyone got any tips for getting rid of a stitch? I never usually get them but tonight got one after about 2 miles, managed to run through it but it slowed me up loads.

Nothing you can do about it really, deep breathes n just struggle through. Unless you get them all the time, then it's a medical problem lol.

You do look like a bit of a tit.. but raising your arms whilst running helps me if I get a bit of stitch. Not above your head stylee but just raise your elbows to shoulder height.

Guess the weather means it's time to man up and get back out there, didn't run at all last year iirc, 5k ~ 20mins when I was last hitting road work.

I walk a couple of miles every day, at least. Soon as a run for more than a couple of minutes I am fucked.
If my knee doesn't give way first.

I need to get my mile n half time back down to 8:30, sitting up around 10:30 at the min. Massively unfit.

Just signed up through work to do the JP Morgan run round Battersea park this summer.

Did it last year with no training and the first running I had done for over 6 months after a broken wrist. Ran the 5.6km in just over 30 mins and am aiming at 25 minutes this year- knocking a minute off per km with 3 months training, achievable with moderate training?

Yeas totally achievable mate. 9 years ago I was an 18 stone fatty. Did a city 5k run in about 29 mins ish...

After a few months of sorting myself out.. I was doing it in 25 mins on the treadmill.

Now at 20 minutes.. but cant see it dropping any further than that!

Good stuff... to clarify though, moderate training is probably going to be once a week, twice at a push if I'm feeling particularly up for it.

Mind you, if an 18 stone fatty could cut that time in a few months I should be ok

Can't wait for it to finally get warm, the few times i've motivated myself to go out this winter (averaging about once a week) have been tragic - sore throat b2b brain freeze. Should pay off for this Summer though.

ORIGINAL: Stanza

Never thought I'd be a "runner" but I've really got into the last few months having not done anything active since my teens really. Have lost 2 stone, since Jan which is partially attributed to running (the rest just eating better) but I genuinely enjoy it and could happily go everyday. Only problem I'm having is sprains. The last couple of runs have rendered my right ankle useless and I after the last run I can't put any weight on it. That was easter Sunday, it took me a few days to be able to walk on it again but it still aches a bit now. Any tips/advice to prevent sprains would be greatly appreciated as it's knocking me out of doing anything active for the best part of 2 weeks each time it happens.



Look at ankle strengthening and flexibility exercises. Poor flexibility and low strength will mean you are more likely to suffer with sprains.
