Oh I love this post! I have been wagging along for two years granny! Nice to have company! I am also glad to read about barefooting it. I am a tender tender foot and thinking of the vibrams. I want to run barefoot but don't know if they will let me on the indoor track without something to cold to try it outside yet! LOL

I'm having "ishews" ... not sure now if my watch battery is dead (I erred: I have the 305, not 405 so not sure what you're talking about re: "stick"). I have two 305 watches. The first watch died and I read it costs $70-80 to send it back to Garmin for replacement. It was the holidays and it came up on an ebay deal, so I just bought a new one for not much more than that. Anyway, too many things aren't working, from the computer recognizing the USB, to charging, to redownloading the software. I'm burnt out on it. lol It seems the battery lasts about a year per watch ...

DOTS if the battery was dead a while maybe you have to pair them again. When I started my Garmin it had to pair with the heart rate monitor and USB stick.

I will look into that rolling pin idea...anything is worth a try!

Cindy, they've been on my wishlist for too long. I am not ready. You're a runner, and I look forward to how you adjust to them. DH bought Nikes. I'll tell you a story I don't know what to think of, but I had a service guy to the house who told me about his relative who overcame his flat feet by exercising them on rolling pins every day. I can't be more specific than that. I always thought it was interesting though. DH struggles with his orthotics also, though, so I understand that one.

I do have a Garmin 405, and really like it -- though I just started wanting to use the heart rate monitor (the battery died, changed it, and still no go). Enjoy your runs!

DOTSLADY I was already looking longingly at some Vibram 5 fingers in my local running store and talking about these on the Runner Girls team. I want to try them and hope I can strengthen my flat feet and weak ankles with them! I have much more control of my foot posture when running than I do everyday activities. I currently have prescription orthotics that I hate! They are too hard and inflexible! Yet when I am on my feet too long without them at work my arches kill me! Maybe with some primal foot wear I could get over that...

They are the next splurge purchase...just got my Garmin 405 with free gift cards DH got from work! They get rewarded for not calling in sick!

I joggle in a more literal sense in that I bring balls or clubs with me and juggle while I jog. It's a fun way to multitask (Saves me time I would otherwise spend practicing anyway), and is a pretty intense workout, especially when I'm using clubs.

Lately though we have two feet of snow on the ground and I've given the joggling a rest. I prefer to practice my belly dancing since I'm stuck in the house...I may not be as young and sexy as I once was but I still know how to move it.

emoticon

I've also started setting my kitchen timer for fifteen minutes and taking a stroll around the house when I first get up in the morning. I call it my zombie walk. Gets the blood moving and wakes me up. I do it again around lunchtime which adds up to half an hour. I figure that can help make up for my being snowed in lately.

Meghan - Look forward to a report on how you do w/whichever shoe you choose. DH has flat feet and has never found a comfortable shoe. He's looking forward to trying a flat shoe after having read Born to Run amzn.to/hdcjJy . THe author gives a quick and interesting talk: bit.ly/gB87Ot . DH shared w/me this link which reviews shoes. If you haven't seen it: bit.ly/minishoereview .

GG - it's funny you wog, cause I joggle. (Jiggle jog). lol I wouldn't have ever thought about 'bonking' on the road- bonking means something entirely different in my world. emoticon (...and DIL ... menses on the side of the road? wha?)

Fwiw, my folks were not the exercise type, and both have had hip replacements. Dad's ... hmm, could be RA and lack of vit D (I swear he has rickets) and ? Mom: she was born with one leg shorter than the other.

Knock wood, I haven't worn anything out - hey, a positive for having fatigue my whole life?! lol.

emoticon all of us for wogging, joggling, jogging, walking, sprinting - whatever!

I went to a running store to get advice because my feet are flat and tend to roll inward when I run. They told me the best type of shoe for my issues, and had a selection to choose from. That was 5 years ago. I still wear the same brand, same model. Just got my 6th pair for Christmas. I can tell when my shoes are wearing out, because my hips start to hurt. It's not just the style of shoe you wear, but also how broke down they become over time. Nothing feels better than a new pair of great shoes.

My problem exactly- with a new longer leg back pain is gone. I tried the "miracle" shoes-such hype, they totally belong in the landfill.

Jen, so sorry to hear about your pain!

Something hit me as I re-read these posts. I was experiencing a ton of hip pain last Spring. This was sudden and had never been a problem for me. I had a pair of those Sketcher shoes with the giant soles that are supposed to be good for walking (forgot the name?). I went to the Running Store. They told me to "throw them out" because they've seen so many people develop problems wearing them.

I put them aside and decided to make an appt. with the foot doc. A year earlier the chiro had told me one leg was shorter than the other. Saw foot doc, sure enough. I had to be fitted for orthotics. He also was not a fan of the Sketcher walkers. Since I had put birthday $ into them, I didn't feel bad donating them to Salvation Army. Back to Running Store to be fitted for GOOD walking shoes. Orthotics came in. Not an ounce of pain since.

Something to think about if you are experiencing hip pain and not a runner (I wasn't even wogging at the time).

You may have one leg that is shorter than the other!

I am having a flair up of some muscular problem in my left hip. I am not happy!! It makes it difficult to get up and walk from a seated position. I did it yesterday when I took Ruby with me on a 5 mile snow shoe trek. It was a hard hike with all the new snow and with a rambunctious dog i think she went one way and i may have gone the other. Such a gorgeous day outside and would love to go for a walk with the pups but thinking it may not be such a good idea. May just go sledding (which may not be a great idea either but need to get the kidlings out today).

I love walking and look forward to the ice melting so I can get out- in the meantime I do stair walking and work out on the Gazelle (a non resistance elliptical). It's boring as all get out but so what...MJ

I am a hiker at heart, Mollie. For me, slow and steady wins the race. I don't like the gym, but consider it (for weight lifting purposes) a necessary evil for me. Right now I'm not going at all because of needing to rest with the Adrenal Exhaustion. I lift hand weights at home and do a couple of floor exercises.

We only pay $5/month, so I'm not about to trash my membership. But I will always default to fresh air and out of doors activities. Others love the gym...we are all different. Live and let live.

Yet, what you say is true. Most runners I know have had knee and or hip replacements, down the road. Owie. I'm in my late 50's, so I too have had a lot of friends go through this painful surgery.

I "wog" for one purpose only. To get my heart rate up for a bit. So I include a little sprint. I have so many metabolic challenges, that it's hard for me even on Paleo to shed ANY weight. I enjoy this little piece when I am up to it. But, my main goal has been to walk for one hour a day, 6 days per week and I am there!

Baby steps, baby steps.

Have a good one, Mollie!!

I can't believe the stories about people with hip and knee replacements going back to running. I am relatively young (64) and fit so recovery has been good but I wouldn't dream of doing any high impact activity that might jeopardize the joint, besides my surgeon would disown me.

My issue is bursitis - it hurts like you know what. I can't imagine what having to have a new hip felt like. My f-i-l has burned through a couple of them running marathons!

Hey guys, I never "yarped" or "ralphed" but I did cause great harm to a hip while running- this past year I got a new one and I will never run again. Do I miss it?- NO, a leisurely walk suffices, thank you very much. I subscribe to mark Sisson's take on chronic cardio and all the grief it causes.

I know at my local high school, runners are welcome to use the track after four in the afternoon. I've actually run on that track - it's nice and squishy. I only did it once, so don't worry. (c:

I know or know of people who do this kind of thing all the time. They are insane, but they are otherwise perfectly lovely people. More power to those of you who grok this.

Well, if getting my run under 13 minutes requires puking, it will be good. See, getting a 90 on my fitness test means I only have to test once a year, which then means I don't have to run as frequently. There is a method to my madness!


As I mentioned, I hate running. So if I am only required to do it for an actual fitness assessment once a year, well, that means less running throughout the rest of the year.

AS for training for a 5K. If you do intervals on the elliptical with the resistance increased you will be helping prepare yourself for running. If you have a gym where you could do a few sprints once a week, it would really help too.

GIRLS! WE ARE ALL NUTS!! ha ha ha Lots of humor here, across the board. I coined "wog" purely for my own entertainment. I know I'm not fit, but I still get out and try. I told the guy at the local running store what I call it and he laughed his butt off saying he was going to "steal it" from me! But hey. It all works. I'm mooooving. The "screw it" part and walking the rest of the way home. Ahhh...the bestest!

Pammie? I think when you yarp on the side of the road while running it's called "bonking?" Runners you can correct me. My daughter is a 2 time Ironman Triathelete and in training for the FBI. Peeing, pooping, menses, yarping....all done with no fear on the side of the road. Really. Hmmm. No thank you, but hats off to you fearless women who do!! This is where GG goes Grokless, folks.

I don't do yarp. Me-no-like it for ANY REASON...not illness, pregnancy, exercise, drink. I avoid yarp at all costs.

My SIL when preggos? No biggie! Yarp and get on with it! Good God. I'd rather die first.

So wogging in pre-dawn darkness humming the theme song from "Rocky" works for this near 60 Grokker.

Grok on Road Warriors!! Chuck dem spears, girls!! Aim a few male behinds if it makes you power up. I have a few I can loan out if needed!! lol

Hugs (and good laughs!) for today -

I don't know if there's ever going to be a reason for me to run. I'm forty-eight and so far, it hasn't happened (beyond the bounds of parenting or dog ownership). I'm more of a saunter kind of girl. Which in paleo terms means that I am most likely to be eaten by a saber tooth tiger.

Meanwhile, I have a runner's injury, which means my doctor thought for a very, very, very brief moment that I am or was a runner. He was shocked. I mean I think I was in the 270's at the time. "you don't run do you?"..."Good Gawd no, why would I?". Then my line of work came out of the closet (retail - up to ten miles a day on cement/tile floor).

So I elliptical. I never go anywhere, but I get plenty of long, slow miles in with low impact. I can run, I have to chase a loose dog down the street now and then, but I don't. I also don't retail any longer (on a full time basis, just intermittent part time).

I see all the crossfit stuff and people's workouts here and on blogs and I wonder if I should do something more strenuous?

As for the original running question, I'd say if there's a good reason for you to run, your cardiovascular system and muscles should be ready to do it, but running until you vomit sounds like an awful lot of violence to do to your body. Do you want to be conditioned to barf when you run on the job?

Granny you crack me up! I am trying to build up my endurance to start training for a 5K this summer. With all the snow we keep getting, its next to impossible to get out there and safely walk, run, jog or "wog" as granny calls it. So, I have been snow shoeing 1-2x per week, heavy interval DVD workouts, yoga and elliptical. I do try and get out walking the dogs when I can but the side walks and roads are getting too narrow and I am afraid of getting squished by a car!

My favorite "better outdoor weather" activity? I like to WOG. Yep, that's my own nick name for this:

Walk for a warm-up
Jog until I almost start wheezing
Walk some more
Jog again (although not as far because the wheeze)
Say "screw it" and walk the rest of the way home

About 1 1/2 to two miles, max

I also like doing it in the early morning darkness where no one can see me. HA!

So, yeah. I don't just walk...I don't just jog. I "wog"...a combination of both!

I was in the same boat as you... I was in the Air National Guard until... well... I should be getting a DD214 soon! I took on the mile and a half as a personal challenge. My favorite was intervals: one lap I'd jog; one lap- skipping; one lap jog; one lap- butt kicks; jog one lap; one lap karaoke, one lap jog. The following day Id run four miles. Then back to the track. My last 1.5 mile run was 11:21!!! Theres no doubt in my mind that you can get under your goal of 13 minutes. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!! =)

I hate to run, but I don't mind sprinting. I am working on getting it so I can run my entire mile and a half at almost a sprint. I think I will throw up at the end.

I am not REALLY going to sprint the whole thing, but at this point it feels like it. I want to do it in under 13 minutes, which means about 60 seconds per lap, the track is 12 laps for the 1.5. Yeah, that will feel like sprinting!

Do you have an exercise that you really didn't like that you learned to enjoy?

I have to do this because running is a condition of my employment.
