I've only done the ice bath once, but I swear by ice packs. Same effect - no shrinky-dink! I do at least one or two icing sessions everyday, whether I've run or not. I have yet to see a credible explanation for the hot/cold thing. Why does that scene with George from Sienfeld keep running thru my h...

WHAT DO YOU EAT BEFORE YOUR MARATHON (& during)

I've got 9 1/2 weeks left to my marathon training & am starting to get into the long LSD's - longer than I've ever gone. After listening to so many stories & tips I'm really, really trying to duplicate race day preparations - the less surprises the better. I ran into a snag with my pre race ...

PS: dear Moderator, can I post date any of my races or training runs since I only just found this site? Just checking :wink: Absolutely. It can go back all the way to um... August 1?

SNOW, SNOW, SNOW :shock: Still trying to warm up, woke up to about 6" of snow at our place (north of Winnipeg). Our hydro went out at 6:30 last night to the shouts of disbeilf from my husband & son. First night of hockey in 519 days & the power goes out !! Thankfully we're fully prepared - t...

I agree that a spring half is possible, depending on how dedicated you are to training. Like you I ran my first 10k last fall, then got talked into taking a half marathon clinic thru the winter. I ran my first half marathon Feb 28 finishing at 2:32:00 so it's totally doable!! I've got to warn you th...

I was one of the few that was using the back door on the RR site when molund told me about this site - I would have been here long ago if I'd known about it.

Newbie Questions

Hi, just a couple of quick "site" questions. How & where do I post my bio? I've noticed that there are different categories for different members (under or over their avatars) such as "elite", or "addict", etc. How does that get there? Um, I think that's it other than saying "WHAT A GREAT PLACE,...

COLD/ICE BATHS AFTER RUNS... ???

Had a good LSD yesterday, actually ran farther than I've ever ran before - 16 miles !!!! :shock: Yahoo! :D It went better than I expected which was a relief, just the idea of running that far was starting to play with my mind. Note to self to check the wind direction before heading out next time tho...
