Ran the Fall Classic half-marathon for the first time yesterday. My training plan was half-assed and I still finished in a respectable 1:47 and change. I basically did 2 runs a week - a tempo and a distance run. On a steady stream of Advil right now and I will be using a foam roller for the next couple of days.

It's time for a new pair of shoes. I ran the race with a pair of Brooks Ghost 3s and the Ghost 4 is available on Amazon for $65. Awfully tempting...

^Congrats, that's a great time on 2x week training!

Also check runningwarehouse.com for great deals on shoes, liquidation shoes are another 15% with coupon code FB15D. I have purchased lots of gear (and have some more on the way right now!) and their customer service is always fantastic.

My kid has been waking up just after 5 am and I decided to have a nap on the floor this morning, on my ride side....and wouldn't you kow it, my right hip was really tight on the run to work. Sleep in, kiddo, sleep in!

I'm a fan of a light wind jacket over other layers; this allows you to take off the jacket and stash it in a pack or even a pocket if you get too warm.

If you want to shop locally, MEC has a great jacket in the TACE

I bought one on sale last year and was skeptical since the jacket is so lightweight, but it does a great job blocking wind and retaining heat without making you soggy. I wore it in windy -20 last winter (with a long sleeve wicking shirt + fleece half-zip underneath) and was surprisingly comfortable. The jacket also survives well being crushed with little wrinkling. Keep in mind that it is not a rain jacket, although it will keep you dry in light drizzle.

I'm currently running in a Sugoi Versa jacket. The sleeves come off, and turns it into a vest which is handy. There's others like the Salomon XT jacket that have zip off sleeves.
Here's a few others that are reviewed:
Running Jackets | Run The Line.com

I was also previously running in a MEC jacket which was fine. MEC is good since you can return/exchange it if you're ever not satisfied.

Dude....THIS is what you want!! They were giving these away at a low price during the Fall Classic at UBC, and this is what I wear all the time when I run in the fall!! Very comfortable, very snug, very mobile, and warm. Also, it has water repellent material, so you can run with it in light rain without getting yourself soaked. Not recommended for regular/heavy rainfall.


New Balance Long Sleeve Half Zip

IMO, go for something fairly lightweight. Having a heavy jacket that bounces makes for a less enjoyable run.

Raybot- how is the sleeve length on that NB 1/2 zip? I'm long and lean (my wife would say skinny) and find jackets that fit me in the chest usually have sleeves that are too short.

If you were to choose between the two, i'd choose the first one.

The second one is pretty heavy. Its good that its warm and all, but then when you sweat, it feels gross and and sauna-ish when you're running. Not to mention, it will feel heavier with the sweat.


The first jacket with a good dri-fit would suffice for most weather conditions.

The material of the 1/2 zip is SUPER stretchy. Theres also thumbholes at the end of the sleeves, so pretty much, the end of the sleeves will wrap right over your knuckles without losing comfort.

If you're going to pay full retail for something like that, you might as well go all out and buy this:

light as air jacket | lululemon athletica

I've bought gear from various companies over the years - Nike, New Balance, and Lululemon - and I would say that Lululemon offers the best balance in terms of fit, fabrics, construction, and aesthetics.

If you're going to buy other brands, head to Winners. You'll save like 50% off the retail prices. Never pay full retail for New Balance, Nike, etc.

39:10 10k today, not bad for the first race of the season. A lack of speed work over the winter made 4 min kms way harder than they were a few months ago

Speedwork 2x or 3x per week. Run 200/400/800 m repeats at the pace you want to keep for the 1.5 miles, with <1 min easy jog between sets; this will get your body used to running fast. Then run some easy 3/4/5 kms 2x or 3x per week.

^ very little, too hot out, although I did participate in the Pt. Grey Triathlon this past weekend, and have a 10km race this upcoming weekend. To be honest, running has taken a back seat to cycling and swimming during the summer, but I've got to get running again soon. Got a few more races to complete this year.
And I might be leading the half-marathon clinic group in the fall at the BBY Running Room, so come on out and join me for a run!

im actually part of the richmond 10k clinic, but i find it a bit too relaxed so im not enjoying it that much.

if i could get to bby reliably by 630 then i would join your half clinic.

bumping an old thread. Any beginning tips for jogging?
My leg/back was injury a few years ago so I didn't do much exercise. Now my back is better I started jogging to get back into shape. It seems I am always out of breath way too soon. My legs doesn't feel tired but I can feel my throat and lungs hurting so I have to stop and rest. I don't think I am going too fast since my legs aren't tired at all.

throat and lung pain will go away with tolerance.

If you're injury prone....the only advice that you need is get a good pair of running shoes.
