    3.6 miles in 35 mins. First run in a week. Will try to hit 4 mi regularly while doing weights on my off-days so as to increase my fat-burning capacity.

    I try to walk every day. On a normal day, I'll get 4 to 5 miles in; on weekends, sometimes I can get in 10 (not all at once, though.)

    went for a short, fast run around downtown on Friday night. On my way back, I saw this antique furniture warehouse so I had to stop by. I walked in, chatted with the owner for a bit, apologized for looking like shit (he was fine with it), proceeded to check out a lot of really nice antique furniture, bid my goodbye and started my run again.

    I was able to run until I hit 16 years old.

    Durring VOAG(vocational agriculture) training. A 800 pound bull landed on my hip so now I just swim to stay in shape.

    But that the time when I was 16 I broke wind and never lost breath or felt tired either at jogging or full run spead.... until the accident.

    I signed up for a half marathon coming up in 3-4 months....I haven't run since i was 14. What have I gotten myself into. Planning to run just based on an hour of time tomorrow to see how far I can cover without pushing myself too far and take it from there. [​IMG]

    I do 3500 feet on my stairstepper every other day. Takes me about an hour.

    I can't run. Hurts my joints and back.

    i absolutely love the benefits of the stairmaster,

    but just loathe doing it.


    that thing is like a pyschologically droning, incessantly suffering hell machine
