    It's too bad that Garmin doesn't allow sharing of workouts, so one person could program it and then share the workout.

     

    Well, they kinda-sorta do. You can't do it via Garmin Connect, but the workouts are saved on one's watch as a .FIT file. A person could connect their watch to a computer or phone just like a USB stick and copy the workout file in question and send that to someone else. It would just have to be dropped into the "NewFiles" folder on the second person's watch for it to work.

     

    I don't think a workout added to a watch like that would sync to their Garmin Connect account so that it could be edited, but that's not necessarily an issue, especially if the intervals don't have pace/HR, etc. goals tied to them.

      yeah, that's a lot of steps though - kinda brute force.  I guess I should have been more clear - too bad they don't "facilitate sharing of workouts."   Where I could program some workouts, make them public within the Garmin interface, and someone else could just click on them and add to their own collection.

      Everyone's gotta running blog; I'm the only one with a POOL-RUNNING blog.

        I understood what you meant, and I do agree. The framework to allow it is there, though. Too bad the functionality isn't.

          Guess I will be here more often.  I just registered for the St. George Marathon in October.  Goals in no particular order. PR (sub 3:16), BQ (sub 3:20), and wear a loincloth (lose my beer roll).

            I think you identified a suggestion for their entire way of doing things. I'm sure they'd take it and say "oh they want US to create workouts FOR them. Something as simple as "send to EMAIL" would work.

             

            keen so are you going to create a public dropbox where people can take these workouts from?  Not asking for a friend. I'm sure those non-garmin people can do it. Sounds like an iphone/android conversation starting.

             

            rov hey, at least you found something you enjoy other than "sitting on the couch watching Game of Thrones" or whatever it is the rich people on the East Coast with their downtown McMansions do when they're home.

             

            beryl guess it's back to the roads soon for you. Any changes to training planned from the last marathon?

              Quick check on from me here, and yes, I'm still just swimming 

               

              rlk - Careful about your injury. I ignored pain in what sounds like the same location as yours for a couple of months + (and it's not that hard to do since it's mostly kind of a dull pain). I'm now past 7 months with no running and I'm still not healed all the way. I'm cautiously hoping I can be good by the time time I hit the 1 year anniversary for feeling it the first time (August 7 last year).

               

              Everybody else - Hi! Keep on running!

                I ran a 5K this morning - went out hard with hopes of hanging on and nailing a fast time - blew up instead.  19:27.  It was worth a shot.

                      Safety pins. Pre-tear the gels to make sure you don’t rip the loincloth off. Fold them in on themselves so they don’t fall off mid race. 100% guessing but it actually sounds like how it would be done most successfully as I type this.

                        Gels are easy.  Just take them at the aid stations.   It is the bib placement that will be a challenge.

                         

                        Brewing - I won't have time to run the same mileage so I am thinking more quality workouts this time.

                          DWave - Perhaps use some KT tape to affix the gels to one's legs. Maybe safety pinned to the tape as an additional precaution? I do agree with Beryl's thought that bib placement would be tricky. I am, of course, curious as to what brings this up.

                          RR is queued up.


                          Rovatti & Rune - Good job with the non-running activities. I hope you're back to running weeklies soon.


                          I'm happy that I've now gotten 3 solid weeks in a row, but found out that I might not be able to make one of the races I planned on this summer. That puts my next definite race all the way out in August, though on Friday I did find a neat nighttime trail 50k in the middle of July that looks interesting. Aside from the inevitable heat and humidity given the race location and timing, that is.

                           

                          I think I'm over my little "not motivated to do solo LRs" funk, and am starting to like the idea of point-to-point LRs. Or at least big loops I haven't run (much) before. The biggest problem with the former is that I have to convince DW to come pick me up in the next town over.

                            Quality workouts are good. they're also about 1/4 of part of marathon training I hate.

                             

                            Picked up about 17 miles. Mentally didn't want to run. The Mona run thing was interesting. It was actually a fun challenge to hit 400 meter pace, but also pretty hard to slow back to an 8:30/mi run pace. It was such a head trip especially when I programmed the run wrong and said 4x15 seconds at 540:00-555:00. goal is to get back on track of 40ish a week. Camping this weekend means I have to bring stuff if I want to run in an area of Tahoe I've never been. Also, I most likely won't be running at all next week. Single dad life (wife going to Mexico) for the week so just figuring out daily life will be complex enough. I considered running at 4am again, but with my wife agreeing "that's when bad stuff happens" running at 4am leaving NeRP home alone means something major would happen. He already fell off a folding platform I had up in the garage to work on the Jeep (THAT sucked) I'd end up 3 miles away and he'd climb out of the crib and fall so I'd be 20 minutes from heat stroke/med tent conditions in full blown panic/superdad mode...so I'll be even FARTHER behind my 2019 goal.

                             

                            Oh and I should consider getting new easy running shoes. I'm approaching 400 miles on mine, but all my money is going to jeep or truck parts.

                             

                            oh and I noticed max is starting his heat training. Hopefully the snow clears.

I ignored pain in what sounds like the same location as yours for a couple of months + (and it's not that hard to do since it's mostly kind of a dull pain). I'm now past 7 months with no running and I'm still not healed all the way. I'm cautiously hoping I can be good by the time time I hit the 1 year anniversary for feeling it the first time (August 7 last year).

                               

                              pretty aggressive in the strava comment! one of my friends said something to me along those lines.

                              anyway, i guess i should ask - what exactly happened/what did it feel like? i have not been in pain from this at any point.

                              thanks for any advice/experience.

                               

                              dwave- lol, it looks like you followed my race strategy a bit? maybe i should rebrand mine as "taking a risk and trying a different strategy" haha. all things considered - nice work! i am convinced a poorly-executed 5k (out too fast) is way more painful than a well-executed and fast one.

                                rlk - Sorry if I was too harsh . It's just such an easy thing to ignore and write off because it's just annoying at first, and before you know it you are out for a long time. I think it first happened to me when I did an interval workout right before flying to Norway last fall. Didn't feel anything during or immediately after the workout but remember it feeling a bit uncomfortable to sit on the plane. Almost felt like a little lump right by the part of your hip bone you sit on.

                                 

                                Then I remember feeling some very mild discomfort when I ran an easy run a few days after arriving in Norway. Also felt it the day after during a long run. But I remember that it never really bothered me that much when I was running and I never felt like it was limiting me in any way (although it probably did), but I had some discomfort after my runs. And I definitely had the experience that it was triggered more with any sort of speed work, so I backed off that a couple of times.

                                 

                                So all in all I more or less ignored it for two and a half months, and then I ran a marathon on it (not very successfully either). And I would hate to see someone out for as long as I have been if I could do something to help out. And seeing a specialist can help pinpoint what you are dealing with and hopefully tell you it's something different. Let me know if you need a name for someone to see, I'm very happy with my specialist in SF.
