Wish I could tell ya! If i get into new runners, i am very likely to choose the Vomero 7's, or if i wait till next year, the Vomero 8s.

But between the 4's and 6's....its treated me well.

Hmm, im not much of a runner, but would be interested in doing the nb fall classic, would it be suitable for an amateur? Im a relatively fit guy but just havent really gotten myself too involved in endurance running.

If you dedicate youself to a training program for a month or two, you could definitely be ready for the half. Make sure to get yourself a good pair of runners and a training plan, and you're good to go. I also find training much easier with a partner/group, so see if you can find a friend to run with or join up with a local club.

Going to take up running again since I'm not doing much these days. Does anyone know a good place to run except on the sidewalk near the PNE area? I hate crossing the streets or waiting for the light so I can cross and proceed.

The NB Fall Classic is an awesome event. Well organized, and hot chili served after....and cheap massages.

Just started running last week for the first time in a while. Managed decent time of 22:44 mins for 3.78km on a nature trail with hills and also did a 5km run today in 25:46. I know those aren't WR times but Im actually motivated to run which is good. Been keeping track with the Runkeeper app on my phone.

Where is a good place to run that doesn't have traffic lights, sidewalks and pedestrians? I know Killarney has a track, anyone know anywhere else that is good?

A treadmill.


Where do you live, and how far are you willing to drive?

Treadmill gives me a big head rush after, feels like I'm about to faint. I live near central park but it's not very continuous.

Then you should try Deer Lake/Burnaby Lake area.

Central Park has markers for the Terry Fox run, so you should be able to do an easy continuous 5km run.

I've been coaching cross country for the past few months and running with the team so my workouts have been short and fast. Decided to see how I would hold up on a longer run and made it to 18km, but now feel like someone took a sledgehammer to my quads. Hooray for vitamin-I

how the hell do you guys keep warm when running? Clothing in general

I find that my hands are freezing the most, was thinking of investing in some running gloves or something? Any thoughts on that?

i don't have a problem with the cold generally. in fact i went running in the morning yesterday wearing shorts and a t-shirt. it's cold at first but it doesn't take long to warm up. my hands take a bit longer so i wear a pair of running gloves.

My hands get cold if my core temp gets too cold. To keep that from happening, I use:
-a thin toque
-wicking shirt + fleece half-zip + windbreaker jacket
-windbreaker style pants (I find them much warmer than tights, especially if there is any wind)
-fleece gloves/mittens

Last winter I used the gear above in temps down to -20 and was quite comfortable. IMO you will be much more comfortable being a little over-dressed than under-dressed. Also keep in mind that you don't need to drop a ton of $ on running-specific gear; the toque I use is the same one I use under my ski helmet, the fleece half-zip was $5 at Zellers and the pants were $20 at Winners....save your $ for a decent pair of shoes.

No idea why, but I only have drive to run when it's cold as hell out, and even then in shorts, and UA Heatgear to keep my upper body warm. I used to run 5k comfortably, but after not doing it for a while, I might have dropped off a bit. The treadmill and indoor running just aren't the same.

running on pavement is really taxing on my knees, does that mean it burns significantly more calories?

Nope...but it can mean a few other things.

1. You're too heavy to be running (which is not an issue, because in due time, running can help you lose weight)

2. you're striking the ground too hard

3. you're striking the ground incorrectly

4. your knees haven't been trained to take that impact (yet)

5. your shoes may not be sufficient for comfort and/or stability.



All 5 of these items are easy fixes. I say....keep on running on the pavement. Running can be an awesome pastime.

I hear working out your knees is essential even if you're a seasoned runner

rumor or truth?

I run and race often and have never done knee-specific workouts, but as I get older I am having to be better about stretching after runs and using the foam roller for i-t bands and other tight spots.

Hmmm...i wouldnt say its rumor or tuth. Sure, if you have stronger knees, then it will likely benefit you. But what good is it if you have strong knees and still well overweight? On top of that, strong knees can only go so far from all the way to a quick run to a 6km run. But when you are doing 1hr+ distances, strong knees still get tired and start grinding. Its more essential to have proper running shoes over working out your knees.

This is very true. If I try to run my shoes past their usable limit, I am guaranteed sore knees and hips. Figure out if you are a neutral/over-pronator/under-pronator stride and buy shoes accordingly. If you have access to a treadmill, you can film yourself and email to runningwearhouse.com for a free gait analysis. Learning Center - Footwear

Actually....now that Acrophobia has mentioned, and you were talking about strength in joints....

Its more beneficial to work out your HIP FLEXORS rather than your knees. If you ask me, working out your hip flexors is essential, even if you're a seasoned runner.
