The Streak 5 is too narrow for me, but I've tried on the Flyknit going up .5, and I may give them a chance.  I think they look great.

Felt so discouraged yesterday because I was at my small apartment gym complex lifting. Then someone jumped on the treadmill and stayed on for longer than I expected. I didn't want to wait around, so I went back to my apartment to walk my dog.

- I went back to the gym after, and I saw it was empty. I then did 5 miles with no problem. I usually do 3, but I felt great. But felt bad because the other treadmills are being replaced and there's only one right now. There was another guy who walked in after my 1st mile, and didn't want to wait either laugh.gif

Any tips on a quick recovery from food sickness or illness like this?

Stay hydrated and try to eat soup. Slowly build that immune system back up. I take Airborne immune system supprt supplements.

Tonight's run...felt my left calf cramp up at the end. Hope I didn't injure myself. Got a half marathon in may. Hopefully some Aleve and time on the foam roller will do the trick. Any suggestions from anyone who has had this happen to them?

post #5015 of 5182
Depends on the pain, but hydration and a foam roller can do wonders.

damn, now I feel like I need to up my daily mileage...

Quote:
70-year-old woman runs 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days




Running four marathons in five weeks wasn't enough. Running 10 marathons in a year wasn't enough. Running more than 70 marathons during her lifetime wasn't enough.

Seventy-year-old Chau Smith wanted to challenge herself even further, so she decided to run seven marathons in seven days on seven continents. In January, the Missouri woman accomplished that goal.

Between January 25 and January 31, Smith ran marathons in Perth, Australia; Singapore; Cairo; Amsterdam; Garden City, New York; Punta Arenas, Chile; and King George Island, Antarctica. Each day, Smith woke up and ran 26.2 miles. Then she'd get on a plane and fly to the next destination to do it all over again.

"She didn't want to publicize this before doing it," said Steve Hibbs, owner of the specialty travel company Marathon Adventures, which organized the trip. "She overcame a lot, and it was just really impressive to see her run and complete the event."

Nine other people joined Smith in running on all seven continents. Although she had done many marathons before, training to run seven in a row took months.

"It took me eight months to really train," Smith said. "The last four months, I really put in long, long runs. Every week, I ran from 15 miles to 130 miles."


Running across the world

The challenge, which Hibbs dubbed the Triple 7 Quest, presented a unique set of obstacles. During the first race in Australia, the temperature was above 100 degrees, Smith said. She became severely sunburned.

The most challenging race was in Cairo. The group's connecting flight from Singapore was delayed in Abu Dhabi, so they arrived in Egypt with only a few minutes to change before heading to the race start.

"We have 10 minutes to go up to our rooms to change and don't unpack," Smith said. "The key wasn't working for my room. I almost used up my 10 minutes. I was crying."

Most of the runners had a set time in which to finish each race in order to pace themselves for all seven. Smith had allotted herself seven hours to finish the race in Cairo, but because of the delay, Hibbs told the group to finish in six. Smith was worried about finishing in time, so Hibbs suggested she run the half-marathon instead.

She finished the full marathon in five hours and 51 minutes.

"From that day on, they never asked me about thinking about running a half-marathon again," Smith said.


A lifetime of adventure

Although Smith didn't tell many people about the Triple 7 Quest challenge beforehand, it wasn't her first extreme physical undertaking. A year earlier, she ran a marathon in Tanzania and then hiked Mount Kilimanjaro the next day.

"All my life ... I always did crazy things," Smith said. "When I was young in Vietnam, I was a stubborn kid. My family always never knew what I was going to do. I always showed them I can do it, just like boys."

Smith started running marathons in Missouri but quickly sought out races in other states and countries. She ran the Boston Marathon in 2013 but was unable to finish the race because of the bombing. She ran it the next two years.

Last year, Smith ran four marathons in five weeks. She traveled to Southeast Asia for a month and ran a marathon in Myanmar. Six days later, she ran a marathon in New Zealand and then a few days after that in Tanzania.

"We never go someplace without looking for the race," Smith said.

Born in Vietnam, Smith came to the United States in 1972. She owns and operates an alteration and dry-cleaning business in Independence, Missouri. Even though she works long days, running always makes her feel better.

"I live a stressful life. Every day, I work 10 hours a day ... but I always feel better," Smith said. "How I feel after I put in my running, I think that's important. It makes you feel good. I can't really put it into words."

Smith often runs with her husband, who has also been running for most of his life. When she brought up the idea of completing the Triple 7 Quest, he was supportive, but worried about her health. Her two adult daughters expressed similar concerns.

"When I told my husband, he said, 'Well, I support you, and I'm always behind you, but the only thing I worry, you get hurt,' " Smith said.

Smith told all three that if she anything happens to her while she's doing something she loves, it would be worth it.

Hibbs has organized only two Triple 7 Quest trips, and he's planning a Triple 8 Quest for the upcoming year involving Zealandia, a microcontinent. He believes these longer challenges can test all aspects of a person's being.

"It's really about challenging both the body and the mind's upper limits," he said. "What can you handle? What upper threshold can you push past?"

For Smith, it seems no challenge is too small. When she retires, she'd like to hike the Appalachian Trail. For now, she's interested in the Triple 8 Quest.

Yesterday's run. Going to increase to more than 3 miles next week. Running has helped me keep the stress level down after being laid off but I feel my terrible sleep is affecting my running.

Me too pimp.gif. 3.25 miles is a big accomplishment for an amateur like me. Gotta keep adding distance but happy with my progress.

40mph headwinds?! eek.gif

Thanks, Kev! I've tried a pair on, but I'm unsure if I'll actually run in them though. I've been having really good runs with forefoot Zoom shoes (Peg33s, Elite8s and, my favorite of all time, the FKRs), so the Zoom placement (heel) in the Streaks keeps me away. Then again, I see A LOT of elites/fast runners wearing the Streaks. It makes me wonder why Zoom in the heel is more beneficial than having it in the forefoot for them. nerd.gif

Thanks, Tim! I think running daily has improved my overall running. I'm on a 22 day streak now. When I don't track my runs on the NRC app. I run at least 1mi of hills. I track them on my fenix3 as a "hike", so it doesn't mess up my averages lol

It depends. I'm sticking through mine, but some days it makes me want to cut my foot off. I ran a half on Sunday, and I couldn't run again until yesterday. But, I'm bad about the stretching (although I do constantly have the golf ball). I'll try again this afternoon, but I have a pretty full race schedule coming up, so I really don't want to take too much time off. I may change shoes for long distances and see how that helps.

Ran 6 miles today. First time in a long.....time.

 

My buddy and I just signed up for the Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon in May. I hope I survive.

 

I put in a lottery bid for the full marathon.

Awesome - that race is on my Someday List.  If you don't get picked for the lottery, keep an eye on Craigslist - I think the MCM is one of the few races that allows bib transfers, and I know people that have bought them for $50 or so.

Any recommendations for running shoes for a beginner. I'm not trying to run any marathons or anything like that, just trying to get some cardio in everyday to get back in shape. I've heard a lot of good things about the ultra boost but for the price I'm not sure it's necessary for what I'm trying to do.

LunarEpic. UBs are marketed as a running shoe, but, IMO and experience, they're meant for walking.

UB aren't that great for running at all. Save some money and get the Pegasus 33 or the Vomero 12s if you want more cushioning. Your best bet would be to find a run specialty store and figure out your gait. Plus you could try shoes from various brands to see what feels the best.
