Guys, do you know what might cause pain in this area? http://prntscr.com/2kgigy It starts only sometimes, not everytime I run. :confusedsad:

Maybe because your shoes, I’ve tried out my new shoe yesterday and I felt so much pain in my calf, so I got home and changed back to my good old one after the first 2 mile, and the pain just disappeared.

I’m thinking about the prize, what could it be? Does anybody know something about? :D

Just a warning guys, don’t overdo it.

I’m not a running type of person, most of the day I sit in front of my pc and work. But this challenge made me think about that and I decided to get in shape and work out more.

So an hour ago I ate, drank and dressed, and went out running. Since this was my first run after 3 years of sitting on my lazy ass, you can imagine a stress on my body. But dumb as I am, I did not think much about that so I ran too much and at one point, while I was still far from my apartment, I started feeling dizzy.

I don’t drink, but I imagine that it’s how being drung must feel. My breathing was heavy, I could barely stand on my legs and my vision was blurry. Since I live alone in this town and none of my friends are from here, I had noone to call, I found some wall nearby and sat on it, trying to get myself together and repeating WordPress functions in my mind not to lose myself.

Suddenly, I realized I’m lying in some tall grass, I managed to stand up and realized I fell from the wall to the other side and landed in some bush lol. I don’t have to tell you how lucky I was for that, it could’ve been road or even something worse, I did not watch where I was sitting sitting, I just wanted to sit somewhere.

So I stood up, feeling a little less dizzy then before, checked my pockets and my mobilephone (I was holding it in my hand the whole run, no Nike armband), and barely made it to my apartment.

I imagine people laughed at me because I walked like a drunk man, just trying to get to my apartment :P

So yeah, funny story that could’ve ended much worse than it did, so don’t overdo it.

I hope you are alright, just take care of yourself! :)

But, I think it is a sign, to start walking or slow running every day, I can’t sit in front of the computer all day because my legs are shaking for a long run and after I finish I feel alive.

I love it when my T-shirt looks like this after a long run, it means I did something really cool.

The sun’s down, 1C and light snow in Chicago. Run #1 complete. Good luck, everyone! :)

Nice shot. We’ve got the same weather here as well but the pavement looks quite slippery, I’ll be heading out soon ;)

@ThematiCSS, is that where you went jogging today ? Love the place too!

Yes yes it is. :)

So, guys and girls could someone explain to me, the actual challenge will start on Jan 16th? In case, what about the challenge that has started today?
That is correct, official challenge starts on the 16th Melbourne time, as Joffer posted/updated this thread. The current challenge was meant as a trial, and as you can’t cancel it, we’ll simply have to ignore it and take only the new one into account.

Thank you! Then I’m going to take a rest. I’ve ran already 30+km in the past two days. :D

Btw, a question for the most advanced runners here, how’s better to improve the distance one can run? Running as much as possible, with pauses(fast walking when I can’t run anymore) or to just run as much as I can, without walking? And, how many times do you run a week?

I’m not a pro runner, but one of the things I wish I’d done from the start was finding my running form. I started off with heel striking and this worked for a while until I couldn’t run anymore. I ended up injuring my knee. I thought it was a problem with my shoes and got new ones, still felt the injury and couldn’t run :P

This went on for a while, during which I’d walk instead of run. I later changed my form to forefoot running. This wasn’t easy at all to adapt to but I have not had any issues since other than initially breaking my toe nails (surprisingly didn’t hurt and I noticed this by accident :D ), my toes would swell sometimes and get blistered etc. All good now ^^

I discovered that when heel striking, i.e. landing on my heels, I’d take all the impact in my knee. This does not happen when I land on my forefoot, I feel the impact in my calf muscle. So my advice for you is to find your running form. If your feeling injury in your knee, hips etc, look into your form. Good luck!

Edit: forgot to add, don’t listen to music when running! It’s a huge distraction and I fell into a ditch fracturing 4 fingers! Lesson learned :P

I can’t run a single mile without music. :D
