How fucked up is it that you can even do that in late Feb?

I know. the place was packed. kids playing football, soccer, catch, and two volleyball nets set up with chairs set up so people could watch.
plus people walking their dogs and just people walking the trails.


...hell of a Sunday for the end of February.

Sat was a three miler run.



...more like a one mile run followed by two miles of run and walk, run and walk...

If you did 3-4 weeks, of 3x per week of 20 min Body For Life ( ::)) cardio, you'd be able to run the three miles without stopping.

Plan is to do 5 plus at a good clip by the end of June.

I will give you a couple methods:

BFL cardio example (treadmill)

Minutes: Speed - all speeds done for one minute after warmup.

1-2:  3 mph
3:  4 mph
4:  5
5:  6
6:  7
7:  4
8:  5
9:  6
10:  7
11:  4
12:  5
13:  6
14:  7
15:  4
16:  5
17:  6
18:  7
19:  8 mph
20:  4

20 minutes.  Each successive time, increase the bottom and intervals (4.2 mph, 5.2 mph etc...)  If you can the base level to 6 mph....you'll be able to run 5.


Or try this:  Jog mile.......run 1/4, walk 1/8, run 1/4 - until you get another mile....then jog last one......

Either one will help you ramp up, without actually running more miles.

I know where I stopped and next time I plan on passing that and keep building that way.
Last year I was able to run 5 miles without stopping but it was a slooow pace.
It's just tough for me to run outside right now cuz my work schedule has me getting home after dark.
After next weeks time change I'll be out and run 2-3 times a week.

Will walking 18 on a hilly course carrying my bag Sunday count as cardio?
