Walk Run

Post  Rob on Thu Apr 02, 2009 4:26 pm

Have you guys considered a walk / run strategy?

Last year one of the Sam runners did this and it worked. I have read articles where peeps have adopted this approach when recovering from an injury and achieved a PB. Exclamation Maybe worth looking at it in a bit more detail... Better to finish that way than screw your leg / knee / ligaments whatever up in the long term... Smile
Some links that may give some food for thought...

run walk

Post  Lee the Pea on Thu Apr 02, 2009 4:35 pm

Yeah I actually use a run walk strategy already, as my training hasn't been that consistent due to lost time from lots of little niggles, and I thought it would be a good way to build up miles without overdoing it. I run for 11 mins, then walk for 1. Seems to work well for me. So i'll be doing that on the day anyway. I did it for the Brighton Half this year, and beat my last half mara PB by 17s, and I ran every step of the first one!!! I used to think it was cheating, but now I think it is sensible! pig

Oh dear, the title's mine.

hello you lot,

Guess who I'm going to see tomorrow..... the physio with my sore knee, what a load of crocks we are. I've not run for over a week now, tried rest, ice packs, pills and potions, straps and even one of those Trion:z bands, but still sore. If someone said , stand on one leg with a turnip up your b..m! and a grape in your left ear, I'd do it just to get it sorted. I went to a 'Sweatshop' store on Monday for a new pair of pumps, the ones I bought in October had covered 700 miles so I thought they may need a change, how right I was. I compared them with a brand new pair/same model and it was amazing how they had deterioated. I had my gait filmed to see my running style, I always thought it was a bit of a scam, but believe me anyone who does any long distance running must have this done just to see what type of shoe is best. My left leg/foot hits the floor in a different way than my right, hence my problem, my foot was rolling to far hence causing my medial ligament thingy to be stretched ( so the man said ) I bought a pair of Ascis with a firmer edge/sole to stop excessive rolling, I had a pair of 'neutral' pumps which weren't correct! we will see when I get to use them. Run / Walk strategy ..... yep thats me. I had always planned that, but I was trying to run for 23/24 miles with walks around the drinks stations, that will have to change now. We've all trained so hard and for months so not being there in affraid three weeks is not an option, is it!

I have decided on cheese for lunch butties and for tea the Palace will have ham butties for 12 ready at 5.30, please let me have your name and number so I can let Liz know queen

One thing is a cert now , I have won the title 'LAST ONE HOME' pretenders will be shot at dawn.

GREAT grandad Phil

Run/walk

Post  JSIMMONDS on Fri Apr 03, 2009 3:29 am

Firstly, the addition of the word "GREAT" into your title did not go unnoticed - are congratulations in order?

Secondly, Rob has a point about the walk/run strategy. I read an article about this in which a study was carried out using 100 runners who are semi-experienced (a bit like us). They ran one marathon trying their best to run all the way. Then two months later, after following the same exercise plan as they had been before, they ran another one, adopting a walk/run strategy (running for 2 miles, followed by walking for 30 seconds). In EVERY case, the final time was significantly faster for the run/walk strategy, and injuries were also significantly fewer.

Worth thinking about. In my long run (18 miles) last week, I averaged around 9.1 minutes per mile for the first 14 miles, then I adopted the walk/run strategy and the last 4 miles were averaged at around 10.2 minutes per mile, which I was still pleased with. I have no doubt that I could not have run the remaining 8 miles of a marathon but I definitely could have walked/run it.

dodgy knees

Post  Lee the Pea on Fri Apr 03, 2009 11:27 am

Yeah what is going on with our knees?! Think we could get a job lot replacement somewhere??? Now Grandad Phil (the Great), don't you be trying to take back that crown I quietly snaffled off you a couple of weeks ago. Possession is nine tenths of the law, and I'm not giving up my 'last one home' badge without a fight! queen
hehehehe. I got my trainers fitted at a running shop and they filmed it - it really was amazing to see how different shoes made a huge difference. Interesting too that you say your foot is rolling in and hence the medial ligament strain - that is what is wrong with my knee!! Slight difference is that my shoes were fine, but one foot still over pronates too much, so i've got orthotics to correct this, but, eh, I wasn't wearing them on my last long run when I hurt my knee.... Embarassed oops! I know, i'm stupid. Lessoned well and truly learned!!! The physio strapped my knee yesterday, and I went out and ran round the block a minute ago. Strapping defo helped, but knee still sore, so i'm not going to do the Edinburgh Half (or the extra 5 miles i'd planned) this Sunday Sad I think the rest would be better than squeezing in another long run. As you say Great Grandad P, there is no way we're not getting to that start line!!! flower
