      running instead of drinking

      Yip my first marathon is done and dusted - loved it!! Now off to do the Gold Coast Marathon in July but have the Huntly Half marathon before then, also the Taupo half in August and then New York! I love running and have only been running for 3 years. Have done several 10k races, 5 half marathons to get to my first that I did on Saturday. I ran the whole thing too.

      Good contributions Carlton and Alton. The light hearted banter between you 2 exercise nuts has an almost slapstick quality to it.

      Another runner here. Been running for years. I always return from a run feeling better than i did when i set out. Great mood lifter and distractor. And very meditative when you find the groove.

      running instead of drinking

      :new: (well, to this thread)

      6 days AF... and 8 days before my first Marathon.

      I've been running for around 9 months which has included 2 half-marathons. It is addictive, and as Guitarista says, a damn good moodlifter. What baffles me, is how much (and at times how fast) i ran when hungover! (Aided by paracetamol, coffee and banana's tho). Sometimes the body simply amazes me at what it is prepared to endure...

      running instead of drinking

      Hi:
      I took up running over 10 years ago. I have done at least 18 half marathons and many, many 10 km races. I find running keeps me sane. Nomore, could it be that you increased your mileage too quickly?
      I belong to a run club and training for a half marathon should take 16 weeks starting with two to three tempo runs of 4-6 kms a week and then one long slow run usually on weekends starting with 7 kms and increasing by 10% each week. In the last couple of weeks we do a taper.
      At about 4 weeks in we start to add hills as well.
      I hope you heal fast and can get back to running and building up your endurance and distance again soon. I suffer from a Morton's Neuroma on my left foot, it is nerve pain. I am always trying new treatments to fix it.
      I know if I drink the night before a run I will either feel miserable or miss it completely. I love running more than drinking and I am grateful that the running is keeping me (for the most part) sober.
      Good luck with the injury!

      Opps, I see that I answered an old post by Nomore. RunningCourage, I ran hungover more times than enough. It is so wonderful to get up without a headache, put on my shoes and head out to meet my running buddies for some fresh air and exercise.
      Happy runs to you all!

      That's awesome! I love running. But be careful doing ANY exercise every day. Your body needs to rest. You will see greater gains in your running if you do it every other day and another activity, such as weight training, on the off day. Give yourself a full day of rest each week for your body to recuperate. I'm not a personal trainer or anything, but I read extensively about maximizing performance.

      When I started doing triathlons 3 years ago running was all I really knew how to do. I had bronchitis around Easter last year and it went to pneumonia, so I was out of commission for 2 full months. Then when I started to train I went too hard and tore my Achilles tendon. There was another 3 months of downtime. So I am really starting from scratch now. You are ahead of me - I better catch up quick!

      Glad you're back in the race Siren!

      Yep, rest is as important as the training/exercise.

      running instead of drinking

      Hi y'all,

      A beautiful long slow run on the beach today. I just kept running and running, enjoying the sunshine and the crashing of the waves, without a care in the world. It's like a meditation for me when i'm in the groove. Haven't done a long run for many weeks, and i probably went further than i should've, but not excessive, and it was so much fun, and so peaceful and energising. Only another runner would understand.

      I was also inspired by some chat today between Anon and Running courage on the Army thread. They were talking marathons and running event dates and it just fired me up a little. Thanks guys!

      Break a leg.

      G bloke.

      In stead of drinking on Saturday night I joined a group and went for a night ski under the full moon.
