I won't laugh at you for running 2 miles. It's better than I can do. I seriously have shit endurance. I lived in a cloud of second hand smoke for about 19 years of my life.

it definitely takes time to build up endurance. I''ve almost been running a year now, and the furthest I've ever run was like 6.5 miles before the humidity came in summer. Now I'm only running between 2-4.5 miles during the heat. If you want to get better at something just continue to do it and you'll evenetually get better. :D

LOOK AT ALL THIS SUPPORT! you guys rock! I can picture you with that face tashie. BADASS! :boxer: i wouldn't wanna mess with you on a bike! and i probably would have laughed at robert too....that sounds really funny.

Marcina, i totally grew up in second hand smoke too! Its amazing how the people who love us more than anything can do that huh? oh well. yeah when i was in 8th grade and we had to run a mile as some kind of physical test, i all but came in dead least at about 13.5 minutes. it was torture and it was wholly embarrassing, so i know all about no endurance. why do they DO that kids. there's gotta be a better way.

6.5 miles HAYLEY???? Holy crap! Man, girl, you can bust it out when you have to huh? 6.5 mile runs, 300 lb leg press....youre pretty damn impressive in my book.

Do you run Zack?
the beginning is always today.

Well it was an awfully slow run, lol, but I did finish! Everyone thats been running for a long time keeps telling me its not about how fast its more about if you finish. So I guess as long as a person finishes their run they're doing ok. I've also only run 6.5 once, and that was back in late April, before the humidity came. :)

This is what my triathlon coach gave to me. We focused on this technique. Forum and proper breathing techniques are important when you're running.

We all called my coach chi

Why thank you.... I hear ya... I also have experimented the past couple months with different training and different diets and gained lots of fat as a result of it..... but I"m back to the old tried and true!

As far as the diet being less fun... girl, I remember your food logs, and you made the plan way funner and more lenient than I could have ever gotten away with and you still lose fat on it, which is actually very unfair!!! :D (i.e. veggie burgers and cliff builder bars everyday if I recall.... I wish I could get away with that... although Seitan burritos have become my best friend but only once a day for me! Then lots and lots of Gemma! I'm going through a phase where I can't even look at Hemp protein though. Everyday I open my cupboard and see two new containers sitting there and go... "maybe next meal"... "maybe the next meal"... They've been unopened for a month and a half. ha, ha.
