does the weekly training thread even make sense anymore on rec running?

Post by John Hurle » Tue, 26 Feb 2013 09:43:03


I do not mind posting it but lack of participation and enthusiasm on
responders makes me wonder why.

I know Doug is still running probably but he never posts any weekly
stuff.  I know someone out in california who does some kind of running
clinics probably runs but he never posts any details.

Down to me and rms and bart pretty much ... even Tony does not really
post much.

Maybe because the Polars and the Garmins make it
unnecessary for people to write things down in a log!
(Although some of them still can write, rumor has it..)

On Facebook I see much exchange (in the closed group of
my athletics team, for instance) but often the workout
details are a link to the Garmin output with Google maps
picture and heart-rate curves. I think most people still
understand a simple "1200-800/1400-600/1600-400 p200 sp400"
or "4(1400-500)p100, sp400". (Those were last weeks track
workouts, combined with some recovery runs and a long run
on the other days.)

    Well it is winter :)  Don't stress over it; my next race isn't for a
month anyway.  Others will chime in if they have something to say

I haven't logged in here in months. Life got too busy.
I haven't been running much. Have started a bit in the past month or so.
Hope to start participating again.

Looks like many of the regulars aren't here any more? Where are the
folks from NY, UK, Jerusalem, etc.?

Hi Anthony,

Good to see you. Good luck with the 1/2M.

Btw, I connected with Steve C. offline. He restarted running a little
while ago. I suspect that's probably the case with a few others which
might explain the low traffic here.

I can't remember ever posting, training logs and such and it wouldn't
particularly occur to me to think that anyone would find my training
useful. At the same time I'm not really that interested in knowing how
other people train because I don't have sufficient background to be able
to set it in any context, or that they don't appear to be sufficiently
similar to me for it to be useful. In any case I'm just stuck in my
ways..

In real life, very few people ever seek my advice on anything to do with
running, and are likely to have more faith in some training plan they
got from some anonymous point on the internet, than anything I can tell
them.

It has been very valuable for me. Once I started posting, I couldn't slack
off entirely (granted, 26K a week is slacking off immensely, but not
entirely) or I wouldn't have anything to say next week. I simply ignored
the fact that I would be the only one interested it what I had to say, and
it has worked pretty well.
