i just go by feel for now. when i'm going 'fast', i'm pushing the pace to the max.. so basically, staying just under my limit for the entire run. 'slow' is basically just coasting completely relaxed, could keep that pace up forever.

Why did you stop caring about jumping and start caring about running btw?

well, i never stopped caring about jumping, i just stopped jumping.. changed careers etc, required lots of focus, didn't have that fierce passion i once had. So years later, decided to switch it up and get into running. It's eventually going to become an obsession similar to jumping/dunking, I imagine. I still plan to get back into reactive training & jumping at some point, but i'm just too heavy right now (lol).

03/30/2015

bw = 177
soreness: not much

run: ~7 mi
- slow



03/31/2015

bw = 177
soreness: not much

run: 3.5 mi
- slow



04/01/2015

rest



04/02/2015

bw = 178

run: ran an official 5k
- 22:50
- placed 205 out of 7,000+
- first mile decent (<7m), 2nd/3rd miles slow
- bad news: annoyed with how I ran, cramped up slightly (not lethal, but had to be careful), overall ran "slow" (by my standards of how I journal), only sprinting happened in the first mile (usually I sprint more in 2nd and 3rd miles), sore
- good news: ran shitty as fu*k and still got 22:50, so that's good news I imagine.

Learned alot from the race. Biggest thing that wrecked me initially, even though I had a good first mile, was getting out of the starting gates. Sooooo many people. Was constantly changing pace and trying to find pockets where I could separate and get out. I was in the 'middle' before the gate, so lots of people in front. In the future, I need to be in better shape and start closer to the front.

Also i'm still way too heavy. Time to push to < 160.

Also I started running in my original bikila's because they are easier to get into "forefoot form" than my newer bikilas. They are more minimalist so a bit more intense/risky, but, my feet are much stronger now so I think I should be able to handle it fine. I need to transition even more into forefoot.

During the race, first mile was mid foot.. 2nd/3rd broke down to heel striking & midfoot, made no sense. I've been good for most all of this month with midfoot striking so, no reason to heel strike at all.

I need to sprint more. My "jog + sprint" sessions were probably the most valuable of all of my training sessions. I think that's the period where I had my best runs. Mixing jogging + sprinting is an epic combo. I havn't been doing it as much because i've been running entirely in vibram's...... but now I can sprint in vibram's, so no reason for me not to be able to bring those sessions back.

Need to make sure I do my bodyweight exercises, post run. Strength has dropped a bit. It was going up for a while when I was performing pullups, sl squats, pushups regularly.

Stretch! I've been getting lazy with stretching. This is really bad because I feel so much better when i'm consistently stretching. My form improves significantly.



04/03/2015

bw = 175
soreness: everywhere

weird how I was so sore after the 5k.. it's like I havn't been running that distance, makes no sense. Normally i'm only sore in my calfs. After that 5k I was sore in quads/hams/shoulders etc.


run: ~7 mi



04/05/2015

bw = 174
soreness: still sore

run: ~7 mi
- forefoot & form emphasis
- form felt nice, slow





pC!!!

Congrats on your first 'real' 5k man!!! I remember mine (/slash first cross country meet in hs) and I had the same issues as you. Depending on how they funnel the start I always tried to start outside and up front so i wouldn't have the masses coming 'over' me in the chure.

Same thing with the soreness, I ran something close to a minute slower than I did in practice and was sore as fuck in comparison.  Coach said I probably was thrown off by the other runners and instead of running 'my' race I may have pushed to hard at the beginning and killed myself for the 2nd and 3rd miles. Sound similar?  GL.with the next one!
