How many miles did you run today? - Page 443

post #6631 of 10558
5 1/2 miles for me. 1 week down 15 to go before I run 26.2! Doesn't feel like I'll get there at the moment but I'm sure if I stick to the plan I'll be fine

Great job Rib!
EL: you'll get there - enjoy the ride.

Me: 8 miles for 56 for the week.

Happy running peeps!

I am down in Santiago to study and hopefully become fluent in Spanish (I can read and write okay, but my conversational skills are lacking)
Will be here 6 months. Hoping to race quite a bit down here, and find a group to train with.
10 today at 643 pace or something. Nice trails to run.

A good 5-mile late morning run.

13.1 in 1:43. Felt tired most of the time, just a training run, not a race.

Gotta say, running really changed my life. Seeing Ribkin made me think I wonder how many of you guys went through similar "life changes". I was 205-210 when I was married 6 years ago. Through running I managed to get down to 155 in about 18 months, and through weights I've been between 170 and 175 since: Warning: After/Before (Click to show)
This is me now:

All because of running...

Rob, that's a tremendous difference. Congrats!

Congrats to ribkin, too. Great work.

Enjoy, Sam!

Running makes me feel great, but most of my weight loss came from tracking calories.

Great job, NewYorkRangers! That's a tremendous difference. I had a similar change...went from 177 to 139. I remember trying on a BB slim fit shirt and seeing a huge belly; that spurred me to move. I use MiCoach to keep motivated. MyNetDiary is another tool and probably had as much influence on weight.

Do you guys eat whatever you want when running?

Ran 9.5km this morning averaging a 6min 25 second km.

My weight hasn't fluctuated much, but I have toned up a lot. I've had a trainer since October, and the gains have been great which I attribute more to the workouts than running. I feel and look more balanced in that I've gained upper body strength and muscularity to complement the lower body strength and muscularity that I'd had already from years of cycling and running.

I'm also careful about what and how much I eat. The book Eat This, Not That and others have helped me make better food choices.

Adding to the testimonials...

I never did anything athletic in my life. Six years ago, for whatever reason, I tried to run and barely made it around the block. I weighed 165 and felt lethargic. My body fat was 22% I found a fantastic trainer who introduced me to a fitness regimen, and I discovered that "I could do this stuff." I learned how to use weights, kettlebell, TRX, and bodyweight excercise. I cut out all stupid foods--pop, candy, etc... and just ate with common sense; shopped on the outside walls of the supermarket and avoided the junk in the center. All along, I kept running and joined the local running club where I received tons of support and learned to run properly and efficiently. Today, I weigh about 145 and my body fat is around 12%. Why didn't I do this when I was younger? If I miss a day of running, it seems wrong--like I'm missing something.. My running skills are not in the same league as many on this thread, but I always finish. The longest races that I've run have been 10 mile races. Working up to a half marathon this fall. It has been life changing.

Cool stuff guys.

I've been a month now teetotaling and gluten free, and so far of all the dieting, I've never felt better or stronger than I do now. I'm pretty hungry after long runs/races, but try to eat lots of protein to fill me.

Bravissimo.

Anyway, the transformation is great but you don't really notice things day to day ... then BOOM! For me, it's always been a anger/stress management thing

Mixed bag ... clothes fit better, you look 5 years younger than people the same age but can't bench 70% of what I used to

Not brave enough to post 'before' pictures like you

Would love to see the pics to see how much you improved. You look very fit now, so go ahead and show us how you were before.
