    I did 4 miles the other day at a 7.5 minute pace. It kicked my ass and I was sore for two days. :o

    Congrats...that's awesome.

    I ran on the treadmill yesterday for the first time in like 9 months. I've just been doing the bike lately, but would like to start running now that the weater is getting better.

    I did about 1.5 miles, but the muscle on my shins (dunno what it's called) just couldn't go any more than that. My wind felt fine, though. Hopefully, that muscle will get built up a bit more so it won't be a problem for much longer.

    i did it outside...i dont know....im pretty good at pacing i guess, you really gotta pump your arms, it helps time it....i was probably at like a 6:40min pace for the first 4 miles.....then i got tired....and it averaged out to about 7.
    it was tough as hell....i had my buddy do it with me, its a lot easier to stay on pace when u have a running partner.

    You should work on negative splits instead of positives :bigthumb:

    I agree with the pacing. :) a lot of runners in my group like to pace with me :wiggle:

    My quickest 1 mile time ever was 6:22.

    I weigh 167.

    When I run my 3 miles for the PFT though, I can't hold that 6:22 pace for more than 1.5 miles or so, then I drop off to a little over 7 minute mile pace.

    2 weeks back i ran 5.76km in 40 mins.... Road run, up and down hills, really was a good challenge since most of my cardio is HIIT through racketball.

    I'm gonna run in the bay to breakers and my goal is sub 60 on the 7.1 mile course. True thats slower than 7 mins, but right now im my training I hit 4.25 miles @ 24:25 . I'm on track In my opinon.

    Running rules because it gets you high.
