    6.2 miles for me - London 'Great Capital Run' 10k.
    A new personal best for me, 58'08" was 4020th of around 8000.

    Always sounds less impressive when you look at the elite guys up front - the guy who finished in second place did 29'04" which was exactly half my time...

    I managed to run about half a mile according to the treadmill.

    That was a few weeks ago so I might get into running again for the hell of i.t

    Went a bit lame (sore heel) on Friday -- took the weekend off and walked the 5km today. Will walk again tomorrow and try running at my touch football game tomorrow night.

    Quick 2.4 mile jog in 20 minutes. Finally starting to run again after having my knee scoped a little while ago.

    I ran 5-6 miles today.

    Prior to 2 weeks ago I couldn't even run one mile straight. Two weeks ago I started running consistently at least every other day and now I can run 6 miles straight. It isn't a big deal for some of the veterans, but for someone who just started, it feels great. I basically could only run a mile the first day so I started adding an extra mile everytime I ran. Now I'm trying to get in shape for a race. Probably this http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=72068

    If you've gone from 1 mile to 6 miles in 2 weeks you will probably be doing ultramarathons by the end of August, so that one might be a bit easy for you...

    Yah right? A mile each run is not as easy as it sounds for non-runners (which is exactly what I am). Going from 4 to 5 kills me that extra almost nine minutes. Feels like an extra 30 minutes. I want to run 10 miles Sat., we'll see how that goes. Might have to settle for 6 since I want to function the rest of the weekend.

    It probably has to do with me been in my 20's and not been out of shape. What prevented me from running in the past was my inability to breath. Once I ran a little and my lungs stopped choking me, it was not that bad.

    Don't push too much too soon. Ideally you should add miles in 2 week intervals. Also, instead of looking at a daily tally, you'll want to increase your weekly miles.

    After far too long of a break from sustained cardio I got back to it today. Although my choice to start with a pretty tough run in 93 degree heat may have been dumb, I had fun. Hopefully I can get a groove.

    5.5 mile trail run, if your not going up your goin down, just under 45 mins.
