i have a rotator cuff injury and helped heal it with doing exercises that worked that area. Streching is key as well. Don't target the area directly. I found when I did that it just increased the problem.

That's marathon length, Br0seph.

All my friends that do that shit...I laugh at them and say "have fun."

No fucking way could I force myself to run 26 miles unless TEH ZOMBIEZ were on my tail.

im saying!

 

i thought it might be a 5k (3 miles)...or a 10k (6 miles).

 

the only way i could do a 26 mile marathon is run the first 2 miles...have someone pick me up in a car and drive me the next 23 miles and then drop me off somewhere so i could run the last mile so nobody thinks i cheated.

I have never in my life been interested in marathons, 5k's, 10k's, whatever.

I like sprinting until I can't move anymore and then being done with it.

I don't know how people have the patience to do that shit.

Driving 26 miles is annoying enough...running?

So solly...I take takshi.

I give props to people that can bang out a 26, no doubt... but running for your knees and joints and body in general, if you are a dude that's not ethiopian status, and you're like 180 plus, it's taxing on the body... This is why I ride bikes.... For bigger build guys man, not as harsh on everything...

The thing with running for me is i'm 5'10" 220. Not fat. I am built/shaped like a cinder block and therefore my body is not built to run at all. I jog 2-3 miles max. I kind of wish I could run 6-7 miles, it's pretty relaxing and definitely releases stress.

the first day of cross country training we ran a 10k. the coach told us at the informational meeting wed be "starting at about 1.8 miles to get you used to running for the first week". needless to say, it thinned out the team quite a bit.

now we only do 2-4 miles with a workout afterwards.

 

its kind of interesting though, im halfway imbetween a runners build and a lifters build (6', 155lbs) so every other sport ive played ive always been one of the weakest. the first time we lifted weights as a team, i outlifted everyone except for the kid in ROTC. and he only had me beat in pushups and squat because hes like 4 feet tall.(coach had us do basically every excersize to failure. except for squats and bench obviously)

 

that being said, i cant run for shit. but im blaming that on riding my bike 8 miles to the practices every day for now.

working your quads, the biggest muscle in your body is beneficial to over all body strength. having that muscle worked over and over releases more testosterone, therefore raising overall body performance.

im sure someone said that in here before.

dead lift, barbell and dumbbell row (check out 'kroc rows' on youtube) chins.

 

another move to really crush your upper back is a high rack pull/pin pull. whatever you want to call it. set the power rack so the bar rests at your knees. perform a dead lift from this point. really targets your upper back

dead lift is the one, if you could find a GHD machine you can do back extensions on that it will help your back immensely, but dont forget to do abs or you'll have your lower back muscles pulling down on ya haha and vice versa.

good shit man....good luck.

 

after reading your post about the 26 miles, i started looking up some marathons in my city.

 

theres a 5k in about 2 and a half months....im already jogging about 2 miles....i might consider training for the 5k...just gotta work on pace....go from a 9 minute mile pace to a 7 minute mile pace.

Where I live they have a series of 5 or 6 runs to help train for the marathon. The first is 5 miles and the last is 18 I think. I'm debating signing up for them or just sticking to my own routine.

Can't hurt to sign up.

Is it free?

Some people motivating you could be a plus.

You could also measure yourself against other runners.
