Thanks Big Grin gotta start somewhere.

The Tough Mudder for Tennessee in May is at the same location where I've done a Warrior Dash and only an hour from my house. Holy shit those were some steep climbs! It's the only one I didn't enjoy - a lot of people had injuries. I'm not comfortable with only 6 months of training for 10-12 miles (16-19K) of steep hills and obstacles. No thanks. Dallas and Las Vegas have runs in October - much more feasible time frame.

nicely done, I need to do more cardio, but man I hate running, I like running to the dumbbell rack though..

Running is about the only form of cardio I will do without coercion. Running helps me clear my head. Or I put on a fun playlist of songs I would be terribly embarrassed to be caught listening to. For example, "Wobble" *might* be on my playlist Unsure. Just got to the parking lot. Time to run!

Interval training is what I do, burns more calories, takes less time.

RE: Atheists who work out
So yesterday I mosey over to my favourite time trial... and it turns out that it's not on because Xmas... so I'm running back home again and I bump into my mate and we decide to run the time trial route as a "training run"... sorta... quarter way in we stopped talking and we got pretty into it... both of us were going flat out by the end - just weren't gonna let the other guy stay in front Tongue He broke me on the last hill though Smile I'm about to head out for a run now...

We'll love you just the way you are

RE: Atheists who work out
I didn't start running for exercise until I was 19. This was initially in preparation for joining the military. My platoon averaged around 16 miles a week (4 miles per run) in the US Army 82nd Airborne Division. We also had to run 2 miles for our physical fitness exam. The best time I ever did was 13 minutes flat (I consider that an accomplishment since I'm not built for running). As I've mentioned in a previous workout-based thread, I messed up my foot jumping out of airplanes and finished out my time in the military with a "no running" profile. Apart from semi-regular pushups and situps, this inactivity continued for 10 years. It was only after I gained nearly 50 lbs that I started running again in the summer of 2012.

I usually run 2-3 miles twice a week. Sometimes I feel frisky and run upwards to 4-5 miles each time. I walk on the days I don't run. Back in the summer of 2013, I was running and walking so much that I averaged close to 70 miles a month. (I didn't even come close to that this summer as I was digging for fossils in Tanzania. Most of my exercise there comprised of hiking.) The best time I've done since getting out of the military is 2 miles in 14:55 minutes. However, yesterday, I ran 1.89 miles in 14:16 minutes. I'm sure I could have beaten my best time had I continued. I guess the course I chose was not 2 miles like I had thought.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interval_training

Today, I ran 5 miles, with intervals of sprints. It is fun when you find a combo that works for you. That's a brief definition but there's a lot on google to give you ideas for workouts.

Be true to yourself. Heart
