I just got home from the 10k. My goal was 75 min and I did it in 80 min but official time hasn't been posted that I can find. It had a nasty hill to run up and down and found out my shoes are no good for my feet and long distances. Thinking of switching to a minimalist but running store insists I go with a heavier cushiony shoe. Want to try the minimalist around an indoor track and treadmill before I try the heavier shoe.... Any thoughts MF?????

So it has been almost 2 months since I have posted. I wasn't in the right head space to be logging but am getting better. Goin on a 3 day smoothie binge. Made some fresh carrot beet juice and cucumber celery juice for my lunch and dinner smoothies and breakfast will be a yummy mixed berry smoothie. Gave up on my half marathon dream because I wasn't recovering or making any progress.... I did manage to get a new personal best just last week on deadlifting 230 lbs!

Wow, great work on that deadlift. That's super impressive! Great to see you back, was wondering where you had got to so it's nice to have you back 8)

Have fun with your smoothie binge MF.

Well done on the run, sounded tough !! Good work in sticking with it.

My 2c on the shoes, go to a running store that can check your gait, foot strike etc and match you up with a shoe that is right for you. Minimalist shoes are great ~ if you are a Kenyan or someone that has never worn shoes with support and/or heel cushioning. I tried to go the minimalist route and after 3wks I wasn't able to run, your tendons and connective tissues, tendons and ligaments are forced to adapt to the changes and subsequently will tighten up. Achilles tears are not uncommon and I believe I was also pretty close to doing that myself.

If you are still convinced that is the route you want to go, buy a pair and WALK in them for at least 100km. Vibrams are great as they're based on barefoot running but you still have some protection and a little more stability that being shoe-less. Just my 2c of course, take care and I look forward to hearing how things are going for you. Take care and keep up the great work !!

I didn't go with any new shoes.... I have only started trying to run again and when I do I hurt bad for days. I have 3 5ks left for the season and will be forcing myself to run them. No amount of stretching or warming up helps either. So not sure if running will be in the future any longer.... Smoothie binge not so yummy as I am not a beet fan and am using beets in 2 smoothies a day. Oh well I will use them up since I had to have them lol

Deadlift up to 240 lbs! Yeah feeling pretty damn epic. Granted I used straps and a machine this time (for functional training reasons) but I didn't include the weight of the machine or anything just the plates I loaded on :) Even leg pressed 720 lbs hehe

Feel like a beast. Focusing all my energyon my training. Work a s training are the only thing going right. My personal life sucks!!!! But not going to dwell on it :)

Ok so got to thinking.... I need to start doing HIIT but dread the idea of burning myself out on it. So thinking 2 days on HIIT and 1 day low intensity hill training repeat. Apparently I am just starting to tap into my strength cause I did bench dips with my feet up on a bench and hammer curled 40 lbs :)

Sidelined since Friday... Seems I went and got me a compression fracture in a vertebrae.... Been in bed since. Seeing orthopedic dr tomorrow to find out for certain and what my options are. Most importantly if I will be able to resume work as a cna.... Pretty scared right now.
