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!

      Meds and condoms is really all you need. Statistically, HSV2 is so widespread because 80-90% of  people who have it are unaware that they have it, and so they don't take all recommended precautions (including using condoms). Oddly enough, if you were to replace your HSV2+ girlfriend (aware of HSV status, using condoms, using suppressive meds) with the average American woman (unaware of HSV status, but 25% risk, which is average - and using condoms at all times, since presumably you could insist on it), you would actually NOT reduce your risk of HSV2. The statistical risk would be approximately the same for both theoretical girlfriends (about 0.7% per year assuming sex 2x per week). That is a bit simplistic, because maybe you could decide to date only women who are verified virgins (essentially no risk), or maybe "below average risk" in some way (younger than average, fewer prior partners than average, etc.), or you could have all prospective girlfriends IgG blood tested for HSV as a condition to dating them (or having sex with them), which would reduce the risk significantly (especially if you confirmed the paperwork), but not completely (since antibodies take some time to develop). At some point, beyond-standard precautions become inconvenient and not worth the hassle (or risk of being perceived as paranoid). The risk isn't zero, and probably would never be zero, short of taking extreme measures. Efforts to reduce risk beyond standard practices, which already reduce risk to relatively low levels, are naturally subject to the law of diminishing returns. Accepting some level of risk is (unfortunately) part of the deal in most reasonable endeavors. Also, there is statistically a greater likelihood of two people passing HPV between them one way or the other, than HSV2 (assuming all recommended precautions are being taken). Of course, you could get the HPV vaccine (everyone should!). But the vaccine only covers 10-15% of the types of HPV that are out there. And tests for HPV are imperfect, and generally not available for males. And HPV (some types) can cause cancer (cervical, penile, and throat - maybe others). So, keep that in mind as well. And then, of course, there are all the other risks . . . Best not to be paranoid though . . .

      That’s correct. HIV is a distinct virus. No virus morphs into another one.

      Hey @thebrightsidegirl I hope you’re going ok, I’ve read your posts and will see if I can draw some threads. I see that you have genital HSV-1 and your partner has oral HSV-1. I’m not sure if he has tested but given it’s somcommon there’s no reason to disbelieve that’s what he has. This is the best concirdant scenario you can hope for in a sexual relationship. You both already have the virus and your immune systems are established and your experience with herpes is your own. You cannot induce an outbreak in each other by virtue your own HSV-1 and transmission to a new location on your partner is too small to worry about. If HSV-2 is present, then it needs to be brought to the relationship. It’s not at all likely you have it given you were infected genitally with HSV-1.  I suggest these symptoms are very unlikely to be related to herpes at all. If they are, then it’s far more likely to be a recurrent outbreak issue with your HSV-1 as opposed to an initial infection with HSV-2.

      Ozone is basically toxic to humans at high levels. Its probably as likely to kill your cells as the virus. Add to that the virus is not in the blood and I'd say this 'treatment' is probably totally ineffective and if it does include high levels of real ozone likely dangerous. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ozone_therapy
