    8mi in the sunshine, and a strength workout at the Y. Legs and toes are starting to return to normal after Sunday's half marathon in Melbourne, FL.

    Myles--Good on 'ya for tackling that ESB Run Up.

    only about 2.5 but at a much faster pace. I started a different HIIT workout today and tried to incorporate some very high-exertion, interval cardio into it. Pretty good and feeling better! :slayer:

    beginner runner here. Have you guys noticed if long endurance running slims down your thighs and legs?

    I haven't noticed slimming in my leg muscles so much, I think if you run a lot of hills you keep decent musculature. In general though running definitely slims you down if you run a lot of miles. It also depends on how you are naturally built.

    3 miles at a fairly fast clip. Wind chill, 22 degrees. Not bad.

    Seven miles before the snow flew.
    Harbin--Congrats on being a beginning runner! Prudent, consistent running does lots of good things for you. Sam's right: individuals vary and different training affects a body differently.

    Thanks! I can only run up to 1.5-2 miles before I really feel like stopping and catching up my breath. Any tips on how to really overcome this? should I just keep running that much and eventually I'll be able to run longer distances or should I just really slow down and keep running (if so how much should I run to). thanks in advance guys
