    I'm sure most poeple in here can beat this but considering I ran an 8.5 minute/mile last year, and was really outta shape i think this is awesome.


    New PR: 6 miles in 42.5 minutes :bigthumb:

    Too bad you can't target weight loss. It's all or nothing. Lifting weights will help more then cardio.

    Your metabolism after a heavy day is up 15-18% for the first 24 hours and then 10-12% for the following 24 hours.

    yea i wish targetting fat loss was possible :wtc:

    would you recommend me lifting before running? i lift everyday after running but after a 6 mile run im pretty worn out and can't do my best when it comes to lifting

    Damn man.

    I'm done after 2.5 miles in 20 minutes. You've got a much better pace and endurance than me...

    i wouldn't run six miles after lifting....
    running for like 20 minutes should be fine,
    but after you lift heavy, you should be filling your body with protein and letting itself repair. I'd save the long runs for off days.

    also, good job on the PR. if you like running that long of a distance, then keep it up, but it seems to be the general consensus that interval training is much more beneficial in all aspects

    damn thats pretty fast. i was able to get a six pack, and i was running 1.5 miles in 12minutes. It all comes down to the diet if you want to get the six pack.

    Congratulations.

    Lately I've been on the treadmill and then lifting. Though far from all out. I find I need to walk/ run for a warmup.

    When I used to run quite a bit I'd run about the pace you did (7 minute mile for anywhere from 4 miles to 8 miles) and I found it was a great way to lose size overall...I kept increasing my calories and lifting heavy but it was just too much running. I used to love to run and once I was 30 minutes into it I just felt like I could go on running forever. Finding myself shrinking month after month caused me to abruptly stop running. Now I may run 1.5 to 2 miles of hills once every other week at the most.

    If your serious about running I'd say go hit some real dirt or cement coruses because if you plan on racing most coruses aren't flat and most don't move under you ;).
