Need to make a weight lifting thread. Do any of you fit people lift?
I lift. Love lifting. Gave up on running. It's just too boring for me. I'll start the thread, because I'm interested as well in learning more about diet and training

Thats almost precisely why I got into cycling in HS....

Yeah the most I'll run is about 20 minutes and that's all I need to feel good. Used to do the couch to 5k app on my phone. When I got to about an hour and a half run I just didn't look forward to it anymore.

My buddy is running a 40 km on the Fundy foot path tomorrow.
Elevation changes 3000 feet every few kms.
Did I mention he's a smoker, lol.

Best of luck!

aug, grabbed the relive app, looks dope. haven't set it up yet, but I'm guessing it just links up to your garmin device?

Relive creates from Strava.
So just DL Strava (it's the shit) and sync your Garmin to your Strava account.

I realize Garmin has their own social network, but Strava is a much larger connection.
Plus, a lot of times, your watch will tell you you ran 2 miles.
Strava takes the average of each segment you ran (or ride or swim) to give you a very real distance for each of your workout.
There's also challenges and clubs and stuff, but it's another great tool to have if you're serious about your sport.

Cool. So I linked my Garmin to Strava to Relive. See how that works out this weekend when I go for a run. Thanks man.

Oh sweet, it's actually retro-actively recreating the runs I did earlier this week. Very cool.

I have wide feet, and I've been running in New Balances for the past 20 years in part because their selection of wides has been good. I'm finding that to be less the case these days. So, it might be time to go play the field again. Any recommendations?

I'd rec Altras. The new Escalantes are pretty sweet.

If you have a specialty running store nearby, try them on and some others, tho.
They'll even evaluate your stride and fit you perfectly.

Yo, thanks, guys. Never heard of Altra; I'll have to take a look. As for Asics, I've known people who've raved about them for years, so maybe there's something to that.

Yeah, I do Asics Kayano and Saucony Guides. Asics and Brooks have been the top running shoes forever, so you can't go wrong there, but I'll second Aug's rec of going to a running specialty store and having them take a look at you running and fit you. For a couple years I was in neutral shoes when I needed stability ones, and it made all the difference in this recurring knee pain I was having. They'll know what they're doing. Also, don't skimp on cost, cause a little more spent on the right shoes is worth the savings in doctors visits and physical therapy later on.
