Currently I'm struggling with runner 's knee :(

My goal is to run my first ever marathon this year, since my friend gave the race as a birthday present...

    Hope that you are well. after 14 months of not being able to run or bike due to both neurological and tendon problems, I am so excited to be back. Three months ago I thought that I might never run or bike and might need to retire with nothing active to do. I am looking for getting back in contact with Movescount friends.

    Hi Boston--I was really bad with autonomic dysfunction, knee and leg issues and even peripheral neuropathy. I spend nearly 10 days at the Mayo clinic in early August, but I was already improving quickly. The worst was October, when I had to sit to teach and had trouble standing to cook. In April I had to cancel plans to teach during summer, but gradually was able to increase exercise, mostly kayaking and swimming, the hiking. Now I am ready to bike at 30 kph and soon, I expect to run a 5 k.

    Hi - So how are things going with the runners knee??? At least you found a way to do a little something, but I am sure it is not as satisfying as just going out for a run. Don't rush yourself - stay positive as I have faith you will be back before you know it!!!!!

      Hi! Still no luck with my knee :( I've picked up cycling to work, but that's not much exercise. I'll have to move my marathon debut to next year. I hope all is well with you! Have a wonderful summer!

    Running 1:04'14.3 Average heart rate 170 bpm, 10.01 km.
    First ever race done! Official time 1.03.42. Pleased with myself although not happy with the time, which nevertheless was expected :) Despite the average HR :) the run did not feel all that bad except for the last sprint to the finishing line :D


    My 2nd 1/2M - goal achieved

    My second 1/2M. I am not that pleased with the time, but I achieved my goal of running faster than last time, so this will do:) I think I started off a bit too fast. Something weird happens with my HR the third drink stop at 18+k, my pace doesn't slow down, but HR drops down to 132 and jumps up and down for a while - no wonder that k felt quite uncomfortable!

    Running, Training

    Time estimator for Marathon, Half-Marathon, 10k and 5k. This single APP shows you 4 estimations - every 3 second the screen switches between Full Marathon, Half-Marathon, 10k and 5k time estimates. It is based on the distance you covered so far (and time of course) plus the current speed (actually it is the average speed over the last 10 seconds - to exclude some random effects, like wrong read-out, or short-term slow-down or speed-up). And in case you covered already some milestones, then only valid estimates will be shown (e.g. if you are at your 12th kilometer, then only estimates for half-marathon and full-marathon will be shown). In the first few secs (before the average speed over the last 10 secs rises enough) the app will show only the current duration. The app does not take into account the 'tiredness-factor', i.e. it assumes you will manage to run at the current speed till the end of your planned distance. I plan to develop a variant of this app that would take into accoun...

    There are many ways to guide your exercise intensity. Controlling pace is one of them. And 10K time remaining is a great way to stay on top of your pace. The App shows how much time is left until 10K is reached. Set it in your running mode and use the remaining time shown to help you adjust speed and avoid fatigue.
