More running

I have done 2 outside runs I think since last post. One I had to stop before I got home as I felt very dizzy.
Have done a couple of tradmill runs as well. One steady and 2 intervals. The last interval I did ten mins warm up, then 8 times one min faster at 9kph and then 2 min recovery at 7kph. Then 7 mins cool down and 5 mins walk at the end. No dizzyness but hip hurt.
am going for outside run tomorrow weather permitting

first outside run of 2011

Well as the title says, today was the first outside run of 2011 and the first for a while.
Went well, inspite of the rain.
New trainers seem to be working well.
Breathing a bit wheezy, but have got a bit of a cold.
Seem to be a bit quicker, 11 min miles, must be the work on the treadmill paying off.

good run

Wanted to get my first run of 2011 outside but the weather turned in the night and we had a covering of snow. Didnt want to risk it so gave in and ran on treadmill.
Surprisingly it went ok...well as ususal the first 10 mins I felt like stopping but after that it went well. I even upped usual pace from 7.5kph to 8kph for 15 mins....doesnt sound like a big increase but it felt it.
Felt very light headed when I finished which made me feel jittery.
Ah well.

well Ive done another run today at the gym and all went fine.
New trainers that felt good. No aches and pains although chest is a bit wheezy.

Ran on Christmas Eve for half an hour on treadmill at steady pace which Im pleased about as I dont seem to be doing many of them. Before that I did an outside run which was fine although slightly shorter than normal.

Need to get my enthusiasm back.

another run

sneaked to the gym and did another interval run. It went well and Im hoping it helps me increase my base running speed. Would like to get up to 8-8.5kph.
At the minute the slow plod hurts so im keeping up with the faster intervals but know it shouldnt be used every run.....if this ice clears I may get outside run to see if that hurts.

Next run at gym i may try heart rate running

Attempted a run on the treadmill a couple of days ago.
Id come up with a plan, I was going to plod really slowly witha short stride so as not to pull groin.
Didnt work. Wasnt groin but top of hip where waist band sits. Got off machine in a strop and was sat waiting for harry to finish weights.
Watched a girl do speed intervals on machine, 30 secs running then jump off for 30 secs.
I was so mad I thought Id give it a go.
Didnt hurt. Granted I'd pulled my waistband up a la Simon Cowell so it wasnt pressing on hip bone.
Ran for 30 secs on 9,10 and 11 kph and jumped off for 30 secs.
Got a bit of a sweat on and felt Id done something at least. The other problem is over my ribs where bra strap sits. Its ok to start but when I start to have to take deeper breaths it pulls the muscles so I can only do it a few times.
See how today goes.

Back and hip been shocking since last run. Have only gotten one in in a fortnight. Really pissed off.
Groin is very sore think from the back pain.
Cant run outside as weather snowy to say the least.
Going to gym tomorrow for a little spin, fingers crossed
