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...

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.

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!

      ANd eight hours is on a surface...on a towel who knows. The eight hours was a quote off a thread a long time ago of worst case senerio. Obviously it doesnt survive double touching unless its some weird arse almost immediate thing off a shedding site and this is all WORST case scenerio. HSV shouldnt be treated with stigma...but for everyones well being it should be treated as carefully as poss. It is a highly contagious condition and can be difficult to diagnose and GP's will let you walk away thinking you are clear when you are not if you do not do your due diligence.    

      I knew more about it than the specialists at the hospital I was refereed to. 

      Thanks.

      I have seen your advise on a few threads and to be honest while I am over careful at times you are not careful enough. This can absolutely happen and people should be well aware of the fact to prevent it from happening. I supposedly have good immunity on labs too. You just cant tell who will pick it up. It can live on surfaces for up to eight hours and towels that are wet and warm and that make micro abrasions when rubbed on skin are ways that transmission that can occur. You will often find out more by spending many hours reading on threads than your doctors. SO no it doesn't always just involve a cut on the skin. How do you think people get it else where.

      So please DO NOT swear at me as this is a possibility and this person should careful tick all his bases before ruling it out, cos on the rare case it is I wouldnt want his life totally ruined. Cos if it gets everywhere your life kinda is.

      It's called caring.

      This is total BS and scaremongering. Please study further on here and elsewhere to learn a few more facts.
