I took two days off, pain went away, but after 2 miles it came back. I tried googling what I could, but explaining the pain is difficult.

Any ideas? I plan to try again Tuesday so we will see.
I'm not the best on recognizing injuries... but I'll try to help. Maybe a muscle strain or pull? Maybe stretching would help?

Worst comes to worst and you can't figure it out, a visit to a good PT would be worth it. I had some muscle imbalances before (to DLPFCB's point) and the PT identified correctly where, taught me how to fix the problem, and it's been fixed now for about 3 years. Best of luck.

How do you slow down, without stopping?
Last night I take off, and first click is better than a while, 5:25. I was a bit upset at some of the parking issues I see continue in my neighborhood.
But then comes the inevitable slowing of pace that I seem to experience as I get into middle distance. I *think* I need to slow down at beginning to be able to maintain consistent pace thru-out, but I just can't seem to do it. Then I get gassed and end up walking portions. . .

Getting old(er) sucks! I so love running, but running don't so much love my older body any more.

I'm not very good with pacing. I'm getting better. My improvement is a combo of running with my wife (who is very disciplined and good at pacing) and treadmill runs (because the machine controls your pace).

As a result of that, I'm starting to be able to tell how fast I'm running, meaning that when I am about to look at my watch I guess that I am running 7:15 or 9:30 or whatever pace and I'm close. Maybe you have a running buddy or a treadmill (or both) that could help you out.

Maybe the treadmill, since it is getting so cold around here. When I went out last night it was barely 52

Have not ran an distance beyond a 5k in 6 years and my knees are thanking me, Was a decent runner in but my back injury exacerbated it but USAF PT required it. The sit up portion put far too much strain on my L3/L4 I used to enjoy running but stress and other non determined issues prevent. Used to run alot. Ran half marathons and did Boston once as jump in my 20's.

Running is very tough on you body.

After running in the north for many years, I would laugh at 52 being too cold. Now being in FL for some time, I agree. LOL

Strong start to the year - distance wise - for me. Over 100 miles in January and on pace for miles for February.

I hope everyone else is sticking to their goals! This is the time where you have to dig deep to make it a habit if it's a new goal for you.

Forgot to update what happened towards the end of 2022. Managed to do 1100 miles exactly for 2022 which is way past my goal of 1000 miles. I was so thrilled with that, because with my IT band issues, I really didn't think I was going to make it around Oct Nov.

Luckily, the training for my marathon helped me pick up the lost miles. I ran my first marathon on Jan 21st in Thailand, so conditions werent fantastic (ie warm and humid). I was shooting for a sub 5 hrs because it's the first time I've ran that far but managed a 4:27. Bonked really hard at 22 miles and dropped to 12 min mile pace, but was able to pick up the end a bit. Couldn't walk well for 2 days, but it went way better than I expected. Certainly won't be my last marathon.

For 2023, I'm going to start shooting for a half Ironman in March 2024, so i really need to get going now, especially swimming portion. Currently training for Ville2Ville, which is a 6 person relay race from Asheville to Greenville. Not super stressed about this one because our team is not setting out to beat any records.

Currently at 173.5 for the year as of today for the year! Needless to say, running has completely transformed my life.

I wish everyone a great year!

I've only managed a few runs this year. Soccer season starts March 3, and Special Olympics Torch run must be in April or so. I can still go out and cold run 5K, the torch is just over 4 miles. Still, my biggest challenge running is that I run out of glucose as a diabetic. My CGM simply won't report when my heart rate goes above about 130, which is when I REALLY need to be tracking glucose levels
