Ok - apparently I'm still too new to this to go running two days in a row :doh:

Last night was the first time in over a week I haven't been out socialising and drinking, so I woke up this morning and thought let's see if it makes a difference! :p

Anyhoo - I run for about 15 mins and hit the wall :faint: My aerobics were fine, I have the cardiac stamina to just go indefinitely, but my legs didn't like having gone for a run last night and then having to do it again like 16 hours later.

Man - went for the 4th run today hoping to nudge 25mins, about 1/3 of the way around got a cramp in my calf :irked:

Hobbled a while, and did a few more attempts at running but couldn't go more than 100m. :?  Got to the 23min mark or so and figgered I was gunna end up posting a 40+ minute time and got annoyed at that so pushed through the first bit of pain and managed to loosen up after a couple minutes, got to the finish in pretty much 30mins flat again.  *sigh*

Got the City-Bay this sunday :scared:  I'm nowhere near ready.  Got no idea what to expect, but I'm grabbing a number out of the air and hoping to finish under 1.5 hours. (12km)

First run since the City-Bay - got 27 minutes something for the 4.5km, walked probably 300-400m of it (up and down bits mostly) and still had plenty of reserve when I got to the end, so on track to get around 25 mins by the end.

Ok, turns out I'm *still* not fit enough to run two days in a row :irked:

Did 4 or 5km last night before heading to the pub, then this morning woke up feeling energised so went for a run.  Got to West Tce (1.6km) feeling ok and took a couple minutes break considering a Big Mac for brekky but figgered I still have 1.6km back...  Anyhoo - started off running back and within 50m had to pull up cos it felt like my legs were gunna sieze up. :?

So had to walk the mile home in the rain - dam walking is slow and frustrating. :p

I respect your efforts, but seriously, at a "certain" weight, running can be seriously bad for you. Knees, heart, hips/pelvis etc.

It makes your man boobs sag too FWIW. And joggers nipple aint even nearly pretty. :tilt:

I'd suggest push bike riding or swimming until a certain fitness is achieved.

Oh, and a damn good go kart session or 3 will sort you out nicely too.

I'm down nearly 10kg in the last 6 months or so - at say triathalete fitness level I'd be maybe another 10kg lighter but I'm not willing to compromise lifestyle that much again.  I was nearly that fit in my early twenties but I was in a new place with no friends/social life, didn't drink, couldn't afford to eat out all the time and exercised pretty hardcore every day.  Back then with basically zero excess fat and well-defined bits I weighed 80-82kg, I'm just built dense. :?

I weighed myself this morning and I'm just over 90kg, I could lose 5-8 more if I tried hard but maintaining that isn't likely so I'll be happy with hovering in the high 80's with a couple love handles. :p

Karting is a good idea though - great fun workout, have to organise one - or a series.........

What I meant was, your ACTUAL weight doesn't really matter... it's how well your legs cope with running it!

If you're cramping up then you lose muscle control, and you risk injury. ~90 kg of out of control ~15 km/h energy will seriously hurt a knee.

Plus, biking you'd get to see so much more stuff for the same amount of exercise time  :thumbsup:

Yeah, set up a karting thingo... maybe a VIC/SA challenge. I'd go for it. Happy to come over and whup some ass. :tilt:

Well my legs cope fine during and after - I feel fine when I'm out there and don't get sore afterwards anymore - it's just they need more recovery time than one day. 

The cramp I got was closer to pulling a calf - and I put that down largely to the uneven surface on some parts of the Corp Cup - there are bits where it's like stepping in potholes and I think I had like 3 uneven steps in a row which put too much stress on the ball of my foot and snagged a muscle.

I don't run up or down inclines as that's when I can feel it overstressing the knees and other joints.  My normal breakfast nowadays is a berocca to wash down a centrum plus an energy-converter and a fish-oil tablet. :p  Often followed up with nasi goreng or a burger or a steak :D
