  1. Hi, It's me Al again. Today when I was surfing the internet searching for a good waterproof swimmer tracker. I came up with this article: best waterproof fitness tracker I felt it quite enough information I need. Not a kind of too much knowledge which confusing people. THen I decided to buy a Apple watch series 2. Anyone here using it? I'm planning to run the first test with it tomorrow. wish me luck!
  2. Hi Kez, Actually, I don't think you have to stop running. I'm a morning person kind and surprise: I don't have breakfast (on my normal running day, I'll eat on long run day.) . The problem here is that you are not really get used to to it. https://firstdate.vn/blog/5-y-tuong-tu-thiet-ke-ao-doi-tuyet-dep/ Solution for this: During harder training sessions and races, your body uses carbohydrates (stored in the muscles as glycogen) as its main fuel (energy) source. You're only able to store a relatively small amount of carbohydrate, which is why keeping it topped up is so important. During low intensity exercise, such as jogging or walking, the body burns fat as its main energy source. Therefore, fuelling with carbohydrates isn’t as crucial and a high protein meal or snack before your run will do the job. I recommend you should eat at least 30 minutes before your run. With other stomach cramps, maybe the problem is that your breath way.
  3. Sorry guys! Is there anyone have experience on fitness tracker I really need help now! I've just read this : "One of the most important aspects of fitness Best Fitness Tracker these days is being able to track activity levels. With the reviews in this best fitness tracker 2018 list, you’ll be able to find an activity tracker to do just that. Knowing the amount of energy exerted can help determine which workout routines or activities give you the maximum results for your time. Other factors such as step trackers and GPS tracking capabilities add more options to evaluate your routine as well." They are also suggest many brand... I'm so confused right now! :<
  4. Hi guys! It's AL here! I've begun to run for 6 months. I had little knowlegde on running. I'm trying to get better at the moment! I've a trail running challenge on March in which I have to run 50k for the first time on jungle and mountain landscape. I've read many tips and tricks for first time jungle marathoners. However, I don't really understand about fitness tracker. Which brand I should chosse? Apple, Garmin, Fitbit,... ??? and Which type should I choose? Which modem I should use? Does you guys have any suggestion? Thank you first!! P.S: I would love to buy a waterproof fitness tracker one (Because I live in tropical weather country).
  5. Hi Rhonda, There're many running schedule out there. However, base on your target and running "power" right now you should have one for your own. I'll help you. First, you should tell me: - How old are you? - How long have you run? - The longest distance you could run? - What's gears you're using ? (Fitness tracker or smartwatch, types of clothes, shoes,etc....) - Your running target.
  6. Amazing! runner here too.... Do you guys have any training plan? I'm about to challenge 50k trail runner this March to celebrate my husband's birthday. If you have any question on running, just ask me. I'll try to answer with my little knowledge.
  7. Who's that my friend? is she/he on zen forum??? Could you give me some of her'his information? I would love if there's an expert who experienced many marathons. I also want to ask about equipments and running tips. I'm planning on buying a new fitness tracker, maybe it would be Garmin Fore Runner GTX 750 or a Fitbit Flex 2,... they're all waterproof. I think it's useful when running thorugh jungle with GPS function.
  8. Just like the title. I'm a runners for not too long and even don't care about food to eat for best effort. However, I realized my record still remain for many months now even I've cross training exercises along with my plan. Are there any nutrition experts here!!! Help me!!!! Thank you so much much!!!!! I've a trail marathon on March, please help me ;(
  9. Hi there! Thank you very much for the guide! I've read it for about one week and follow for 3 runs. the first was the hardest when I didn't feel comfortable (probably because I was not ready). On second run, I finally get used to it... And I felt better!!! On the third run on Saturday, my breathing was easy then ever before. Actually, I mixed your technique with my technique. I saw the result was awesome. I gonna going for a new HM PR now!!!!
  10. I'm a fan of bare-foot running too! xD But, this March trail will be the first trail for me, I'm going to try 50 miles challenge! I've read many technique too and I think the more you run on trail simulated ground the better you will do. However, I prefer sightseeing when running!!!!
  11. You should jogging for 1-2 miles first before stretching. the shorter you run, the more you need to stretch. Here'a routine I use: Quadriceps Hamstrings CALF Iliotibial band Piriformits PSOAS Gluteal Muscles Groin Spine Stretch Lower Back When your heart rate going up to 105 -122 (ZONE 2) It's when you ready to run! You should have a running fitness checker to check it! Happy running!
