I've started the running now I would also like to add some body weight exercises like push ups, crunches and etc. Should I do them on the says I don't run or do them prior or post run. My son said he thought to do them on the no run day but I said that you don't get your recovery day. Can anyone shed some light on this. Thanks!!!

Ran my first half marathon today in Pittsburgh. 1:59.48 was my time.  My goal was to beat the 2 hour mark and i did it by 12 seconds!  Only Oranges and bananas during the race and 2 Dates and small bits of celery.  Plus plenty of water.  No gels, Gatorade, caffeine, bars, or powders.  Just straight fruit and water!

The advantage off a camelbak is you can drink while running, there are also packs where you can adjust the bottles on the front, but as i was saying, just check out the different models and aply them to what ya wanna do. Some extra room for a rain jacket, pants and shirt always comes in handy, esspecially in wintertime. Good luck.

if your out for longer than 60/90 minutes then you should idearly be looking to take in some fluids. double that time and you should be taking in cals. i personally don't like blader systems so i have my water in bottles, (camelback). ive got a hydration belt with room for two, you can also get them with room for one! at the front of the belt their is also room for food. you can get bladers that you carry around your waist as well if youd rather that to bottle/s  and/or  a backpack

Thanks miles! Bouncing is one of the things I was concerned about. It was just that when I run my throat gets dry. I started taking a bottle with some water just to keep wetting my throat. Hence I thought i would start training with the a waist pack. I also considered a camel back because of the bouncing with the waist pack but heard that the camel back retains too much heat. Thanks again!

camel back is mainly for water/fluids.I think some models have also some extra room but mainly is just for the fluids. If youre going further than buy a waist pack, you can put in  a camel bak- food and extra clothes and some other items. Personally i would use it only if i run longer then 3 hours, why use the thing if you dont need it? I would recommend (depends on your goals) t o buy a waist pack with enuff room so you can use that if you need it. There are special brands with very good models. One thing you dont want is that is bounces, i think mine is like 12 liters and its enuff fur all the runs.

I've just starting with running again after a several year break (down). Now I'm 48 yo and trying the 80 10 10 Raw Vegan Life Style. Which is working. I'm running apx 30 min every other day and I plan on getting into long distance running, Marathons. I was wondering if I should start right off training with a waist pack or wait until I get into longer runs. also whats better a waist pack or camel-back and why.

for anyone's who ever broken their clavicle, I broke mine during rugby practice, and I have about 2 weeks left until I can abandon my sling. I was just wondering how soon can I start running again? (I used to run in between rugby practices, and would love to start asap!) Im dying to know i want to run again so badly!

For running 50's i think that's way too little food, you can pull it off , you can even run a marathon without any drinking or eating- but its not smart in the end. Off course there are exceptions to every rule but in general the average runner should be eating more. I ran marathons before on only two figes but could be much faster if i drank and ate more.
Before an marathon or ultra you dont have to do really special things the days before- just make sure you get all the fresh fruit and juice/smoothies and greens in your body so the system is full. But i guess youre doing that already. Just do whats natural to you. All these runningmagazines are based on fear telling you need to do this and that- all bull. Well not all but a lot i think. Just enjoy the feeling -and pain- and accept the moment- and put some fuell in your tank on time.
