Gotcha. I'm not a fan of the woo at all, but (and I am not trying to convince you otherwise), the woo only comes into play when Westerners bastardize the non-Abrahamic faiths by turning them into decor, meals, hygeine products, etc. Without gettting into too much detail, it is hard to find good introductory texts, but I would recommend starting here and branching out as you learn more.

As for a more grounded approach, Dan Harris, author of 10% Happier was on the Rich Roll Podcast a few weeks ago, and Light Watkins more recently. Mr. Watkins has a book too, and I think either person would be a good fit for you.

Best of luck on your meditation & running journey.

I think the first order of business for you would be to work up to a frequency of 5-6 days a week and 25-30 MPW. Don't worry about higher intensity running until you have a base established.

Then you would benefit from finding a 5k program that you like. All of the stuff you are wondering about would pretty much have clear answers if you found a good program. A solid 5k program would improve both your 5k and your mile time. And it would also answer questions like how long on your long run, how to get your E mileage, when do to hills, how to do interval work, how fast, etc.

I'm a fan of Jack Daniels, and if I were in your shoes I'd be running one of the 5k plans from Running formula. Pfitzinger is also popular here. And Hal Higdon has some 5k plans posted online.

I very much enjoyed "The Perfect Mile: Three Athletes, One Goal, and Less Than Four Minutes to Achieve It" by Neil Bascomb. It's about Bannister and his two contemporaries as they tried to break the four-minute mile. Surprisingly riveting stuff, and an interesting insight into the training of the times.

Pizza is also great. I ate a whole pizza for breakfast today. Highly recommend.

The XX5 simply indicates that it has an OHRM, I think. And it does have one. The 645 is also over a year older than either of the other two X45 series watches, as it was the first of the new watches announced, so the 245 has some newer sensors that the 645 doesn't, despite being more expensive.

I really like my 645. Don't need the 9XX stuff, need more than the 2XX. Unless they changed something between the 235 and the 245, the 2XX series is limited in the number of data screens and activities you can use, plus no wifi upload. Those are very important features for me. Here's a link to the DCRainmaker comparison of the newest generation Forerunners for those who are interested. Here's the DCR list of current holiday sales on running/biking tech.

Perhaps what you meant to title this post is something about how it's not the best value for the cost given the sales on other watches being run right now? Yeah, I'd agree with that, if you're paying full price for it. The regular 645 is on sale for $324 on Amazon right now. I certainly wouldn't advise anyone buying a nearly two year old product for full price no matter what other models cost, especially since the 645 is the most likely to be refreshed soonest.

But it is a good watch that lots of people might want, especially when you can get it discounted.

I am /u/vrlkd (Strava), been around a while but my posting frequency fluctuates between being overly active and AWOL. I am more consistent with my Slack participation. I'm based in London and can regularly be found at my local parkrun.

  1. 2,017 miles for the year would be sweet.
  2. I ran a low 18s 5k in May before getting injured, so I would like to break 18:00 before the end of the year.
  3. I've a bunch of books to read (next on my list is Sapiens and The Name of the Wind). Other than that, simply to stay healthy and positive. To enjoy life.

Yes. It's a book by Matthew Walker. I think it would actually be a good artc book even though it barely touches on exercise.

Amazon link: Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams

Training Essentials for Ultrarunning is what you want. It covers all the important things to be competitive and put together a great training plan. He's also a coach for many top level ultra athletes, like Timothy Olsen.

It doesn't provide out of the box plans, but it describes plan creation in details and with examples so you can make your own.

u/startrek_ensign · 2 pointsr/artc

I recommend the conditioning one because it focuses on what you can do for the first 8-12 weeks. If you like the results, invest in the 3rd edition of the first book, which focuses on strength programs.

The Ouray 100 film following Avery just got released.

The trailer is pretty shit, but this is one of the hardest races in the world (7k+ more climbing than Hardrock, same mountain ranges, less support) and Avery is one of the best runners.

u/moongrey · 3 pointsr/artc

I just got these that are still deeply discounted on Amazon.

I like them a lot and use them both for running and for when I'm in the lab working. Pretty good at blocking out noise and have decent sound quality. Plus, they're inexpensive right now!

u/brwalkernc · 2 pointsr/artc

Looks like there is a 3rd edition. Know if that one would be better or not?

u/Barnaby_McFoo · 6 pointsr/artc

Not a big fan of Matt Fitzgerald, but The New Rules of Marathon and Half-Marathon Nutrition has some good information in it.

u/daysweregolden · 3 pointsr/artc

If it were me I would stop running if it hit more than a 2 on the pain scale. Maybe see a Dr. or PT to at least be sure you're not doing damage?

If you just want to gain mental toughness I would highly recommend this book.

u/dgiz · 5 pointsr/artc

Just noticed that Pfitz has a 3rd edition of Advanced Marathoning out. Does anyone know what's changed? Or if it's worth getting if I already have the 2nd edition?

u/Mortifyinq · 3 pointsr/artc

It's in Pete Pfitzinger's Faster Road Racing. It has a ton of other helpful information, exercises/stretches, and training plans, but if you just want the plan pm me and I can send it to you when I get back to my apartment later tonight. I know there's a pdf of the book floating around somewhere though, I remember finding it but I don't remember where unfortunately.

I've generally heard the recommendation you're getting from others on this thread. Slowly add lifting to your workout/hard days. The last thing you want is to deprive your body of easy/recovery days.

You may also want to check out Alex Hutchinson's book, Which Comes First, Cardio or Weights?. It does a good job of capturing the science (if it exists) on some of these questions.


u/PrairieFirePhoenix · 3 pointsr/artc

A Shining Season was my go to for "I want to run through a break wall".

u/Winterspite · 1 pointr/artc

Tacos! We've been reading this book to my son recently and I think of you and your taco addiction every time.

Not necessarily for October, but because I just remembered it and it's an excellent true story: The Ghost Runner: The Epic Journey of the Man They Couldn't Stop.

From the Amazon description:

>The mystery man threw off his disguise and started to run. Furious stewards gave chase. The crowd roared.

>A legend was born. Soon the world would know him as "the ghost runner," John Tarrant, the extraordinary man whom nobody could stop. As a hapless teenage boxer in the 1950s, he'd been paid L17 expenses. When he wanted to run, he was banned for life. His amateur status had been compromised. Forever. Now he was fighting back, gate-crashing races all over Britain. No number on his shirt. No friends in high places. Soon he would be a record-breaker, one of the greatest long-distance runners the world had ever seen.
