a "long" rest

Postby soniczip » Thu Oct 20, 2005 10:30 pm

last week i decided to have a rest after a long run. just a few days i said to myself, just to regenerate the batteries. a week has passed and now i am stuck with cold and sore throat! :evil: what happens after two weeks of inactivity and no runs? how do you suggest me to get back in the routine? my routine before the stop was 60-70km per week with a 28-35km long run every two weeks.

I would sugest to start with a run of 7k. Something that is not to much for you (with that much km a week) but not nothing. see how you feel. If you don't feel good take a day off and do a litle more the next day. Do you've got a special goal? Sounds like a marathon...

good luck

yes. i'd like to do the passatore marathon: 100km from florence to faenza in italy (27-28 may). the problem is my longest run so far has been 35 km. i don't know if i'll be able to do it. :? but i'll try!

why don't you start with a marathon than a 50 or 80 k run and than the big one?

if you don't like races you can also train these distances.. you can use bicical or walking routes..

there the km should be measured...

good luck respect!!!

oh yeah yeah yeah, that's what i'ma trying to do. i'm increasing the mileage week after week, without racing. what i really need is to find hilly tracks. the passatore is basically two long hills.

Good luck! Im sure you'll be able to do it, as long as you keep on top of the training. And I assume you like the training if you are planning to do a 100km race!!!

well, training is running and running is fun. isn't it? :wink: i'll have to differentiate though: cross training, a lot of hill training, speed training. at the moment i'm just aiming at doing long runs comfortably. once i've reached 40-45 i'll ask some expert long distance runner to help me.

i went back running today, but only for 6km. i feel ok and tomorrow will do 10. i don't want to force too much straight away. my body really needed it. after two weeks, i could feel my legs' muscles crushing.

maybe it's the wrong expression :!: you know when you get tin foil and you crush it in your fists :?: a sort of shrinking feeling :(
