Training Update

Recommended Posts

BigD51

I had pretty good training last night, just about as good as ever. So my advice to anyone that exercises heavily is to let your Obs heal then go full steam ahead. I tried to train with my 1st and it just completely exhuashted me.

Good to hear! Taking rest days is hard but a necessary part of training. I was really fatigued last week and my legs wouldn't cooperate. My trainer took one look at me and said "how are your legs" I replied that they were sore from our last session and she told me to take another rest day. I protested but she argued the point and I did. She was right. If I'd done the scheduled session the following day I would not have run well, I would have felt dejected and I would have had little training benefit.

Rest days are not just for OBs :)

Big D and Ultra Violet, these posts are soooo encouraging. While my OB has passed, so has my motivation. I've been a complete sloth and have not had a good run in weeks. We've been snowed in with negative wind chills for a week here, so that just leaves the treadmill. I have not wanted to chat small talk with my gym buds and they don't take the hint when i point to my ipod in my ears, lol. I know they care but I just don't feel like confiding in them about why my runs are so crappy. I know, excuses excuses!!!

Please continue to post about your training sessions, you guys are awesome! I'll get it back, I need to be ready for the spring marathon season :)

This fat old chick

is inspired by your post. I lost a lot of weight last year and have been gaining it back mostly due to job stress and depression over that. I am going to go out and start walking sometime in the next few days. Right now I am recovering from a back injury I got while lifting heavy boxes trying to clean out my messy apartment. But reading your post made me realize the joys of taking care of myself and I promise I will get back to that ASAP. I am sure exercise will help my current depressed state of mind as well as herpes.

Time to feel the fear/resistance/whatever and do it anyway! Get on the treadmill girl!

(Say she who has yet to go for her scheduled 30min run today and doesn't have bad weather as an excuse!)

Congratulations Brainyblonde...

That is FABULOUS that you have lost a lot of weight over the last year. I don't have the excuse that you do of injuring your back from lifting so be careful and take it slow. Thanks to Ultra Violet for urging me to get back on the treadmill. How about you go for that walk and I'll get a workout in as well...report back and so will I. I've let HSV keep me on the couch too long over the last month and am certain the lack of exercise adds to depression. Thanks for your post, i found it very inspiring. Hugs, anna

Hi Anna

I went for a run yesterday and then saw a group of my friends were organising a Christmas Day run so also headed out this morning at 5am! I must be mad as I've committed to a 5:30am mountain run on Sunday too...luckily it's summer over here eh!

      I certainly hope this research continues. It all seems legit to me, but again, I'm no medical man (although I did play doctor a few times).

      This is good information to know. To go from continuous outbreaks to none all this time is encouraging. I wonder if after you've given it some time and this regimen proves itself, maybe you could title it, and type it for everyone to read. The more suggestions, the better! You mentioned you've suffered with Herpes I outbreaks. I have suffered with the type II, and I recently read that Lysine doesn't help with the type II. I don't know about that, because it really has helped me in years past. Anyway, by mentioning in your article that you have type I will help, because apparently something might work for type I that won't work for type II. I myself will get these products and add them to my daily garlic regimen, and perhaps I will be able to eat whatever I choose without triggering an outbreak. That's my big problem, wanting to eat the foods that trigger the outbreak!

      “..Meanwhile, the present study suggests LDXGFG as an alternative, inexpensive, and lasting-effect medicine for curing HSV2 infection caused genital herpes....” Anyone  seen any further research on this ?
