If you haven't already done so, join a club. They should do beginners courses to build you up, mine do 3-5 mile runs and 6-10 mile runs but you go at your own pace and every landmark (usually a junction where we change direction) the faster runners run between the last person and the muster point until everyone is there. You go at your own pace so the faster you are, the further you run which keeps everybody happy.

No run today. angry.gif
Mother Nature blessed us with about 4-5 inches of snow overnight. It took 2 hours to shovel out. This winter, we've been spoiled.

11mi on ice and such after a cold snap.

Harbin--Sugar's got a point. If you're cranking a hard effort, you'll want to ease off. Run at a rate that doesn't make you out of breath. Allow your body time to make all those changes it needs to get you a SF-quality frame for those duds..

New runners should start by walking up to 5mi, to get used to being on your feet. Then, walk a mile and within that take a run break of 30 seconds, repeating up to 3-4 miles. Week by week transition until you're running more and walking less. I coached runners from a dead start to complete the Dublin marathon 3 months later using this walk-to-run transition.

9ish today and about 10 or 11 last night
Starting to get in shape smile.gif
Today I picked up 2 pairs of New Balance 890 V2's. They are f*cking awesome. An ounce lighter than the last editiong (just under 10 oz)
and made in the US of A which isn't a huge deal but I see it as an added perk. I get 40% on new balance ish too, so that helps, but seriously check them out next time you are at a running store. They are great. Possibly best trainer I have ever ran in.

Just started running again last week after a few years off and getting bigger around the waist. Im going with the Couch to 5k method and it seems to be going well. I've run/walk 11 miles so far this month but feel good.

16 easy miles - 54 for the week. Happy running peeps!

10mi.

User's Couch to 5K program works. Consistency and enjoyment both matter, because a person won't stay with it if he/she doesn't feel good.

Try running at 9 min/mi. I bet you'll get much farther.

only about 3 but I've upped my pace a lot recently as part of some High Intensity Interval Training I'm trying... seems to be working but I'll have to give it a couple more weeks.

Got in 20.1 miles in 3:15:38 on Saturday, did the GWB to Alpine NJ on The Long Path. Legs were a little more beat up than usual. Sunday ran a recovery 6.76 miles in 1:16:02. Still working up the the mileage I need to be at come March, but the body is feeling good overall.

Thanks for the kind words on ESB. If you ever get the chance to do a stair race, do it. It's fun (if not exhausting) experience.
