I ran 3.2 miles this morning and for the first time I ran sub 9 minute miles for the first two miles.  I have to work on my knees as the Lateral Collateral ligament gets inflamed if I work it too hard.  My average for the 3.2 was 9.26 minutes a mile.

Congrats Rick.  The 10k is such a great distance.  A really enjoyable distance to run.

Ran the Crescent City Classic 10K this weekend.  Time was 59:20.  I figure that isn't too bad for a first mini-marathon and having started training about 4 months ago.  It's funny, I never ran distance before and really didn't care to do so but now it's enjoyable.

Same old story, a lack of consistency. 6% body fat, half-marathon runner in colle and post college, but then came the kids and a stressful career. add to it adrenal fatigue and overtraining with CrossFit, I was in a bad state. Took some time off training and stopped eating things that would add to the inflammation, giving my adrenals a rest. I'm three months back into a consistent rhythm, building up my mileage while also doing body weight, HIIT called Freeletics.

Excited to join the group, pushing toward long term consistency.

I ran after an upper-body workout this morning, and then went to give platelets this afternoon.  I didn't realize that running can lower your platelet count, but mine wasn't high enough for a double donation, and the phlebotomist said that running could be a reason.

Had my best week running last week: 22.94 miles in 3.5 hours.

Ran 21.41 miles this week in 3.25 hours, averaging just under 6.59 mph.  Not bad for 52.

Just joined the group. Been running regularly since 2007. My best years have just come about though. Logged almost 1100 miles last year and hope to raise that up even more this year. I am registered for a marathon in November, and it'll be my first.

Excited to join the group, share what I've learned, and learn more.

I just started running this past spring and have competed in four 5K races since July.  This is the healthiest and greatest I have felt in my entire adult life.  And I am turning 56 soon.  For me, it is my escape from stress.  If I don't run, I feel like I am cheating myself of one of my great pleasures.

Naterooski I have trimmed 15 lbs roughly just by training for a 5k. I did not change eating habits or anything. I lose the most weight when training for rugby season which is done by interval training. Endomondo app for ipod and droid has intrerval training that helps a lot.
