Running/Not Running with a {Probably} Not Broken Toe – Running Fitness Article

You might have encountered runners with injuries. And you may have witnessed firsthand how cranky they can get. It’s a thing. I haven’t really talked about it much, but this past fall I had an injury and couldn’t run for a while. It happened in Kona when I was there for the IRONMAN World Championship, the night before the race. I had this freak thing happen to my toe and although I can’t say it was a broken toe, it was really badly bruised…

Garmin Forerunner 245 – Dirty Old Sneakers – Running Fitness Article

Garmin recently released updates to most of the Forerunner models and I’ve checked out both the 945 (you can see that review here) and the 245. Before I get into it, I want you to know that I bought this myself so these are my thoughts and my thoughts alone. I didn’t get the option with Music so I paid $299 plus tax.  Here are my thoughts on th 245. After a few weeks of using the device I can…

Dementia Transformed! An Angry Grandma turned Happy! – Running Fitness Article

It has been two and a half years since my grandma had a stroke and the family has been through a lot since than. I stopped writing for a while because Unfit Runners have fallen into a routine running the same old Marina Bay route almost every week and I was occupied with taking care of my love ones who were falling prey to one disease or another. Let’s continue where I left off…If you recall from my earlier articles, grandma…

Diary of a Rubbish Marathon Runner: There’s Always Hope – Running Fitness Article

I think the less I train the less I am motivated to update the blog, or maybe those things just happen to coincide. I’m not sure.Last week was another one with low mileage, at least by my own standards, about 45 miles. I had felt totally dead on my feet on Wednesday and Thursday, so I decided to basically bin the long run on Sunday. I still went out, mostly to test out all my shiny new gear I got…

Thanks to Frank Golden for letting me use these images – they are great! Find him here on Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/Frankgoldenphotography/  It’s been a while since my last blog post, apologies for that.  I have been hibernating and feeling grumpy at the most hideous winter for a long time – muddy, wet, cold and snow besieged – I am so looking forward to winter 18/19 (said no English person ever).  Yesterday somebody mentioned Christmas and it put me in a bad mood…

My goal to run faster at 40 – Running Fitness Article

IT’S been a while since my last blog post. I’ve been on a Greek island coming to terms with turning 40. It’s been tough. I always thought 40 was old, until last week when I suddenly realised how young it is. Except it’s not really. And I started worrying that if I want to achieve certain running goals (like a sub 20-min 5k, sub 40-min 10k and sub 1 hr 30 half marathon) then I’d better get on and at…

VICKY’S ULTRARUNNING ADVENTURES: The price of ultrarunning/ the price of safety – Spine Challenger – Running Fitness Article

In the lead-up to the Spine Challenger race, well pretty much for the whole year really, there was a lot of discussion on the race forum and other online groups about gear for the race.  Like in other group discussions, if you ask a question the responses will be split between those who are genuinely being helpful, those who are simply taking the mick and those who just have nothing positive or helpful to say to anyone about anything.  I…

Ricotta Cookies – Running Fitness Article

At any given point there is always at least a pound of ricotta in my refrigerator. I usually use it for pasta dishes, but it’s also a staple in a bunch of really excellent desserts.

A different Bob/ The Kick inside of me – BMC GAA Miler meet and CSSAL 3000m – Running Fitness Article

Another week and some more track. After last week’s lung busting mile it was back to the 3000 to see if I could chip away at the 10.09 I set a few weeks back and try and get near that holy grail of sub 10 minutes. Why do I pick these targets that are so far away from my capabilities? Because I can, I guess. Soft targets are no use when you are going well for yourself, and I don’t…

A Trip To My Therapist’s Office – Running Fitness Article

I looked at my calendar and silently groaned. “Therapy again tomorrow? I just went last week. There is literally nothing else I can say. I’ve said it all.”And there’s some truth to that. I’ve been in and out of therapy since I was 15. Having eating disorders, anxiety, and depression means my butt has been on a lot of old couches with stiff pillows, while surrounded by fake plants, cheesy quotes and various assortments of self-help books.Nonetheless, I did my…

Blog 605 – 605 Running Co. – Running Fitness Article

Altra (all-tru) is our next brand on deck. Not really known for having a funny name, but once you saw one of their shoes, you’d know exactly what I was talking about. When I first saw this brand the words that I used to describe them were clown shoes, and that is the truth! A friend introduced them to me a few years ago and told me that I should give them a try. My exact words were “why would…

YogaToes Toe Stretchers – Women’s Running – Running Fitness Article

When I first saw runners on Instagram wearing what looked like pedicure toe separators, I was skeptical to say the least. There are a lot of gimmicky fitness products out there, yet people were talking up these things called YogaToes. The website claims they are a “simple, one-step way to soothe achy feet and fit foot problems, including bunions and plantar fasciitis.” They’re designed to fit between and beneath your toes, gently spreading them apart and away from the balls…

How the Sauna Can Help You Live Longer and Make You A Better Athlete – Running Fitness Article

How to use a sauna: Sit in an oversized oven and bake yourself for a little while until you’re tired of stewing in your own sweat and are on the verge of a panic attack. Just kidding. But unsurprisingly, that’s what most people think a sauna session is like. I’ve been using traditional, Finnish-style saunas for nearly two decades, and I can tell you firsthand that a proper session need not feel like a near-death experience. On the contrary, it…

No, Zwift Racing Wasn’t Hacked. Yet. Sorta. Let Me Explain. – Running Fitness Article

In the computer security world there are a pile of conferences where security folks get together and present various sessions. I use ‘security folks’ as a loose term that can broadly cover everybody from IT professionals working for a non-profit like Red Cross, to government security peoples, to folks with less altruistic goals. These conferences have been around a while, and are generally considered good for the IT security community – assuming things like security bug disclosures are done properly…

SPEED – It’s not about the bragging rights – Running Fitness Article

I never get it when the first thing people ask when you complete an important race is, “What time did you do?” Like I get it if they are a running friend, and you have had a prior conversation about pace, or your goals…but when an almost complete stranger asks the question I’m a bit like “I think you are missing the point” Don’t get me wrong I am motivated by times. I set goals. Normally a Gold, Silver and…
