    Re: OHR (One Hour Runner) August 13 - 19

    Thanks for the support last week. I am actually still having some trouble with my dang achilles- If I could go back in time and drag myself to a running store and get proper shoes I would. Anway I have decided that for whatever reason a change is in order and this program isn't working for me. So I am going to drop mileage and time running again for the next two weeks and let it heal back up again and not wear the shoes that seem to be adding to this problem ever again (I was wearing them for walking and apparently since it isn't 100% that is too much).
    Then I am going to do Hal Higdon's novice 10 k training program. I am running a 6k end of October which is a strange distance with no training programs for so I thought if I could build up my endurance another way with a slightly different method maybe I'd get over what I now feel is largly a mental block with OHR.

    I am impressed with everyone's dedicationo on this thread and I figure I will be a one hour runner I'll just get there via a slightly different route.

    1. What Week/Day are you on?
    2. How do you feel?
    3. Have you had to repeat a week or day?
    4. Did you add time or remove time from one of your runs?
    5. Do you notice something different about yourself yet?

    1. What Week/Day are you on? W5D1
    2. How do you feel? good, though slightly nauseous
    3. Have you had to repeat a week or day? no
    4. Did you add time or remove time from one of your runs? not today...I think (watch died)
    5. Do you notice something different about yourself yet? not today

    Not the best run ever today, though it had nothing to do with how the run itself was. My watch died part way, so I did 2.9 miles instead of 30 minutes, and I'll have to get a new battery. Or maybe a new watch, since it's all scratched anyway. Anyone have any good (cheap) watch recommendations?

    I also ended up feeling pretty sickeningly nauseous by the end because today was garbage day and I was breathing in that disgusting, salty-sweet garbage smell for half an hour. Almost puked.

    Charlie B - Hi! Welcome to the thread! I skipped week 2 too. After all those 30 minute runs, you really just want to get going, eh?

    umcee11 - Whatever works for you is great. I'm curious about Hal Higdon's 10K program: is it significantly different from the OHR? I haven't looked at it, but it seems like they should be building you up to about the same level of ability.

    Pteranodon - Speed is fun!! !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|border=0!

    Thanks
    You are right it does build up much like OHR does that is why I chose it - you start out with a
    2 mi, 2 mi, 2.5 and work your way up to the end that your long run is 6 miles- I don't run fast enought that 1 hour would =6 miles for me but it is the same basic idea. I really think it is all mental at this point so just to start something new and have some sucess I hope will help.

    1. What Week/Day are you on? W1D1 post OHR (I'm following

    slavetodogs

    example and still posting for the continued moral support !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|border=0!
    2. How do you feel? great
    3. Have you had to repeat a week or day? no
    4. Did you add time or remove time from one of your runs? did 3 miles on the treadmill today
    5. Do you notice something different about yourself yet? the treadmill feels easy I think because it's SO much cooler inside than outside, but I think it's actually a little harder on my calves, they don't hurt, just a little tight today.

    Pteranodon

    glad to hear you're feeling better, runs where you get faster are awesome! !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/biggrin.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/biggrin.gif|border=0!

    CharlieB

    welcome!! you're into the best part of the program now!

    umcee11

    sorry the achillies isn't totally healed, hopefully the new program will give it a little break and give you the mental confidence you need. I'm sure you'll do great with it!

    merpy

    ewww gross! garbage smell! yuck! I can just imagine. sorry no watch recommendations here, I've had the same one for over 6 years and really need to get a new one too, it randomly stops working.

    Hello everyone, I'm new here, just finished C25K last Friday.  I had been lurking in this thread from time to time, thinking I'd be posting here eventually.  It just hit me, I'm finally doing the OHR!  Ha!

    1. What Week/Day are you on? Week 1 Day 2 (tomorrow)
    2. How do you feel? Great!
    3. Have you had to repeat a week or day? Not yet
    4. Did you add time or remove time from one of your runs? I screwed up my timing on W1D1 and only ran about 25 minutes, but I'm not going to re-run it.
    5. Do you notice something different about yourself yet? Yes, I'm much more laid back about my running now!  When I first started, I was pretty uptight about the whole thing.  Now, I'm more laid back and am enjoying it more.  I'm probably going to run Week 1 twice because my running partner is going on vacation and I don't want to be on different weeks.  When I started C25K, that would have driven me crazy!

    Hey everyone!

    Umcee, good luck on the new program, and rest those achilles. You're a good advertisement for getting the right shoe. !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|border=0!

    Pteranodon, that's awesome that you got faster and faster. I'm still a turtle, and sometimes that bugs me.

    Welcome CharlieB and Shamy! Glad to see new members to our little group!

    Merpy, I bought a heart monitor watch from Wal-Mart that I thought I would love, but I'm really disappointed in it. The HRM gives all over the board readings. Doesn't seem to be accurate at all, but maybe I don't have a consistent resting heart rate... It's a Mio brand. That's too bad about the garbage smell. Another reason I love my treadmill. !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/biggrin.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/biggrin.gif|border=0!

    ok, so this post is for accountability. I skipped yesterday and am getting ready to run D1 of week 5 tonight. I figure if I post now telling y'all that I'm going to do it, it'll happen, right? This is the first time I've had serious issues getting motivated to run, but things have been so busy/exhausting at home (traveled over the weekend, have a sick kid, husband is out of town, work is stressful) that I think I'm just tired.

    But for me, running gives me much needed time for me, and keeps the stress headaches away.  So I'm off to run.

    Ok, I'm back and I did it.  Leave it to me to have a group of 'imaginary friends' to help keep me accountable.  !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/biggrin.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/biggrin.gif|border=0!

    1. What Week/Day are you on? W5D1
    2. How do you feel? tired. I'm beat.
    3. Have you had to repeat a week or day? Not yet
    4. Did you add time or remove time from one of your runs? No.
    5. Do you notice something different about yourself yet? I don't like running on a full stomach... I waited for 2 hours after i ate, but still felt that icky full sensation.

    Well, I should get off the computer.  My 13 year old is freaking out because she has a zit on her forehead and she's worried it'll still be there next Monday when school starts.  I shouldn't trivialize her worries, but it cracks me up.

    1. What Week/Day are you on? W5D1
    2. How do you feel? Great
    3. Have you had to repeat a week or day? No
    4. Did you add time or remove time from one of your runs? Not this time (trying to stick to the plan more this week)
    5. Do you notice something different about yourself yet? Not really this time. It took a fair bit of convincing myself to go out for the run as it was raining really hard, but wanted to get back onto my schedule for this week so forced myself out there. I guess it's good practice for the Autumn / Winter too as I don't plan on giving up!

    Monnik - keep it up! We'll all be your motivation! That's the best thing about a group - you feel guilty if you don't do the run !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|border=0!

    umcee11 - good luck with the new plan. Does it involve more days a week?

    shamy52 / CharlieB - Welcome! I'm still amazed at how far i've come over the last few months and OHR seems a great extension to C25K so good luck with it!

    D2 on Thursday!
    Cara

    1. What Week/Day are you on? W5D2
    2. How do you feel? Amazing
    3. Have you had to repeat a week or day? No
    4. Did you add time or remove time from one of your runs? Um - yes - confession time! My husband sabotaged my run! He decided to come with me and picked the route as he is much better at directions that I am so is more adventurous on his runs. We set out for 32 minutes as per schedule... All was going to plan until he decided to 'explore' a track! End result was that I ran for 44 minutes (shock - did I really run for that long!!!) and covered 4.1 miles!
    5. Do you notice something different about yourself yet? I am truly shocked that I managed the 44 minutes and the distance that I covered. Although I was starting to feel tired by the end, I was still feeling strong and hardly out of breath. Even my husband commented on how much i'd improved since he last went out with me about 3 weeks ago. I don't think I really believed that I could do this, but I can!

    So there's my story... 'Long' run to go on Saturday but then it's going to be a walk in the park after my 44 min marathon! How's everyone else getting on?

    Hey Chamblin & Monnik!

    Great to see you guys doing well here.

    Monnik - don't worry about that speed. Give it time, it will pick up.

    Chamblin - 44min, well done. You knew you could do it.

    Cheers!
