    Finished in 1:57:58 or 9 minutes per mile, which is faster than I expect to finish :bigthumb:

    Training is pretty basic for running, just get out there and run :bigthumb:

    I followed the cool runnings couch to 5k program to get me started back in June or July I think of last year. http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/181.shtml That program really works for anyone.

    4 runs per week is my schedule. I do 3 runs a week of 5 miles each, 1 of those is hill training where I push up several large hills during the runs. The fourth run of the week is 10-15 miles at a slower pace (9:30 approx is what I shoot for on a long run). Keep your running schedule split a bit, I do 2 run days, 1 day off, 2 run days, 2 days off per week (Sunday Long Run, Monday Regular 5m, Tuesday Off, Wednesday 5m Hill Training, Thursday Regular 5M, Friday Off, Saturday Off).

    Best book out there is: Galloway's Book on Running 2nd Edition fantastic, covers schedules, pacing, injuries, nutrition, you name it. Best tip out of it, is don't stretch before or after running it only leads to injuries, which is totally counter intuitive. However surprisingly it works when you do what he says to warm up/down you no longer need the stretching.
