Yep RayBot is right- the throat and lung stuff you need to keep working on.

Good running shoes are a must- I used to run on Nike trainers/Frees, and they're definitely not the right shoe for me. If you're game, read on the differences between neutral/stability/motion control types of shoes and try a bunch on (don't forget to do a light jog in them in store). Ankle/knee pain is almost non-existent now that I've picked up a good pair of running shoes fit for my running habits.

Also, since you're just starting out again I'd suggest running in set intervals to have a better idea on how you're progressing. Something like a "run 5 mins walk 1 min x 4 reps" program can quickly tell you where you're at with your running stamina. Too easy? Bump up the running portion or reps. Too hard? Do the opposite.

I never thought I'd say this, but I actually look forward to running nowadays.

I started running last year to slim down for my wedding

First week of running was painful ughh

Get a good pair of running shoes and take it at your own pace. Don't push yourself too hard, let your body adjust.

Hah that's almost the exact reason I started (I'm doing Tough Mudder which is a month before wedding, so it's a double whammy).

Also something to note- make it a habit to stretch after running. Start at ankles and move your way up. Foam roll if you have one lying around as well. Your body will not only thank you in the long run, but it will help you recover from general tightness/soreness after runs.

Currently using a pair of Nike Flex Fury. Seems decent but I still like to run on Nike Free (that's what I use before).

I ran today for the first time in years. Ran from Science World to Cambie Bridge and back. I found it too short, so i ran to Burrard Bridge and back. Man False Creek is beautiful! Will try to make this a weekly thing and hit some food joints along the way.

Good weather these days. Perfect for running. I like to jog around my neighbourhood, usually 30minutes - 1 hour on weekends.

Great running weather, been running with friends now

I might get a new pair of shoes, I have 1 pair of Mizunos and like them.

What do you guys like/use?

Usually run 2x a week, about 5 to 7 km each time.
Pace is about 5:30min - 6min per KM

I run 6-7 days per week and swear by having 2-3 pairs of shoes in my rotation. Older shoes are reserved for shorter runs and fresh shoes for weekend long runs. Having shoes everywhere drives my wife crazy but keeps me healthy (knock on wood!)

I do the majority of my training in lightweight, moderately cushioned shoes. I'm really liking the Nike Zoom Elite and New Balance M890, relatively light but enough cushioning for 20+ km runs and I can usually get 750+ km before my knees get sore. I think the next pair to try will be the Brooks Launch, and I'd like to try a pair of Hokas to see what the hype is about.

I do speed work/racing in New Balance MR1400v2s, great shoes that are cheap online.

(I have no affiliation with this company but check runningwarehouse.com; their sale prices are great and free shipping/return shipping makes trying shoes painless)

i rotate 3 shoes too, but lately i mostly wear my kinvaras and newton distance.
i tried some hokas last month at the store and they do feel pretty cool, the cushioning is intense.

any trail runners here?

bump

i was invited to group run tomorrow night but i might not make it, so i was thinking about it and hope to gun for next week

what are some things i need to watch out for? we are not running track or street (i thinks like square that leads to a opera house and museum)

there is about 30 ppl in this group run

also wondering what kinda of bags do u guys recommend for running (looking for types), as i do carry 2 phones, keys with lanyard and thick wallet (im quite use to carrying bag when i go out)

i have not ran in years and i thought this would be a great way to get in shape as well as meet new ppl (i use to run with my dad in minoru track in morrnings once a week)

I dunno about other folks, but when I run, I tend not to carry anything with me except for keys, and I usually use my "running key fob" which only contains the bare min # of keys I need to make it home.

do you really have to carry stuff when you run?
i just carry $20, drivers license, car key (if i drove), and thats it.

you just need enough to get through the run then back to your house or car anyway, and it's not like you're going to pick up your phone mid run. why bring it all?

I'd go with some kind of waist pack. Things will bounce a little, but if you keep the belt tight then it should be tolerable. Plus you could put it under your shirt if security is a concern.

I run home from work daily with a Dakine backpack and I'm quite used to it, but a pack would be overkill for what you are carrying.

Just a heads up, for those who like Brooks, or those who want to try Brooks shoes. They currently have a 90 day trial (True Blue Guarantee) promotion going on. Usual guarantee is 30 days. I believe the promo goes til Dec. 31st.
Basically, buy any new model Brooks shoes, go run in them for 90 days...and if you don't like them, you can return them for a refund. I guess they have that much faith you'll like them, but I'm sure there are those who will take advantage of the promo. This may apply to apparel as well! And I'm sure some of us can put enough mileage in within 90 days to wear out the shoe!
You can either buy through their website, Brooks Running Shoes and Apparel | Brooks Running.com, which currently has free shipping/free returns over $75 to Canada. Or visit any authorized dealer, such as Running Room, Run Inn, Rackets & Runners, etc.
FYI, Running Room had 25% off Brooks this weekend for Black Friday, you can try asking for that if you go into store. YMMV. I picked up a new pair of Adrenaline GTS 16's, looking forward to putting some mileage on them.

My preference of shoes are the Asics Gel Kayano's.
Good stability and cushioning. Good selection of different widths.
Sports chek in Metrotown had a pair of the Gel Kayano 20's on sale for $129.99. I think it was an in store special.
They have the GT 3000's on sale right now for $99.99, from $179.99

Ran this afternoon in 10 degrees and a setting sun...no toque, no gloves, BC interior. Hard to believe it's December!

I'm thinking of doing the seawall around this time. Will long sleeve nylon clothes be enough to stay warm?

I'm on the fence between Asics Nimbus or Nike Vomero 10, in 2e width, but I can't find the Vomero in 2e in Canada. Anyone of a Canadian retailer that'd carry it?

i quit running this yr, too much heartache in injuries.

usually if its around 5-10 degrees, i'll run in shorts, a longsleeve, and a thin toque. sometimes i'll bring a ultralight jacket to help cope with the first 15-20m.

if its about 10 or warmer, shorts and a thin longsleeve or shortsleeve is enough.

stress fracture? tendinitis? Sucks to hear that dude. Hope you'll have a speedy recovery.

FYI, I found a site that carries and searches for shoes in wide (2E) size. It's also a Canadian site based out of Ontario.

Got in my first 10k race of the season and was 1 second off my p.b. Time to get back into some speed work and crush that time in the next one.

thanks bud, i had a stress fracture 2 years ago that put me out for 6 months.
ive just been having a tightness in my arch lately that feels uncomfortable then develops into pain after about 20m. i can sort of cope with it if i switch more to a midfoot landing instead of my usual forefoot, but at this point i'm just fed up with my foot problems. rather focus my time and energy into my other activities
