You are probably suffering from dehydration. Four miles is a lot to run, and 15 miles is a lot(for most people) to bike. You can start to sweat after even just a half mile in hot weather or in other heated environments. If you have loss of balance or/and fuzzed vision, that raises the chances of the sole cause being dehydration, too. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER!!! ...

Like Eric said it could be "healthier" than not doing anything at all. But: Especially in the beginning of a running career, too many runs can lead to injury. Your muscles will probably do the job, but other stuff, like your sinews and cartilages just need more time to adapt to this unusual pressure. It may seem fine in the beginning, but you may cause ...

If you don't have any knee pain caused by it, it's definitely healthier than not doing it. I would advise adding some sort of resistance training to your routine in order to make sure that you mainly burn fat and not muscle.

While concrete may be a harder surface than asphalt, other than preconceived perceptions, there is not an appreciable difference in deflection (Force returned from a surface) between concrete and asphalt. There is a difference between grass, dirt, rubberized track surfaces, etc., but between asphalt and concrete any difference that you perceive is ...

The surface you are running on may play a role in how your body reacts. There’s an often quoted study co-authored by Southern California podiatrist John Pagliano that states… "… one of the five leading causes of injury is "improper" running surfaces........concrete is approximately 10 times harder than asphalt, so all your bones, muscles and ...

Your problem might not be with the hardness of the ground you're running on. If you run on a sidewalk that is on the same level on the road you shouldn't see much difference. I think the issue here is the fact that sidewalks are not as straight as paved road. Most sidewalks have bigger slopes going down, up, then back down again. And the sidewalks stop when ...

Try "POSE method of runnig". This is a technique improvement(gooogle the exact phrase) . After trying it i must say that this did to my running speed a mirracle. Not that i am a good runner anyway.

If you are looking for ways to increase your speed at a given distance, I would suggest running over distance. We raced 5k, so we ran anywhere from 1.5x to 4x that distance. If that is a problem for you (because of injuries or whatnot), look into other forms of cardio that are lower impact. Cycling, swimming, rowing come to mind. Keep in mind the injury ...

First, just thought I'd mention that it says when joining this stack exchange that questions should not be opinion based. That said, I usually hang mine on a fold up clothes hanger, or over a railing outside. If these aren't options, you could just rinse them in the sink or toss them in a fresh bucket of water.

There isn't currently an integrated theory such as you discuss. I would recommend reading The Lore of Running for a long discussion of the impact of various conditions on running times.

To expand on my earlier comment: If you fit into the population described in the study (your fat and mass are at the top end) then that regression equation claims to be fairly accurate, from the stated: residual (r) values (r = 0.836, P < 0.0001). The paper even gives the found deviations in Kj / min – arober11 Jul 1 at 0:24 But with all ...

It could be blood sugar but since its summer it could be a lack of water in combination with heat and the meal sitting in your stomach. It takes some water just to digest your food too. I get nauseous when I run after eating, and usually the afternoon can be the warmest time of the day. Ive learned how to deal with this but usually for longer runs; ...

Make sure the roti is made from whole-wheat flour, the rice should be brown rice and the bread should be whole grain bread. Also, make sure you eat at least 400 grams of vegetables during the day. The exercise you do should have sufficient intensity, you should measure how fast you run during that 20 minutes. If the pace is slower than about 13 km/h then ...

Check your form, or have it checked by a runner. You are not a runner. Before you become a runner you need to make sure your form is good, you aren't too far overweight, and you aren't trying to do too much...too quickly. Landing on your heals can destroy calves. An overweight person can actually get small fractures in their bones from running. I'm not ...

I don't think there is a name for this phenomena, but would say it's related to several complex issues that endurance runners have when they get far enough into a long run. First off, our bodies and especially our brain combined with it's central nervous system are quite complex. They all actually adapt and become more efficient at doing things in a certain ...

I got an app called mapmyrun which allows you to create a 5K plan with the amount of workouts you want, and days for long runs. Also it can track your runs and help you see where you can improve and so. I've been using it and from being a couch potato I can now actually run.
