Everyone's not training to outrun zombies, smartypants.

I only have to outrun fat people or those close enough to be tripped, or kicked in the ankle/knee.  :)

Yes, agreed.  But I have played softball for 20+ years, and it ain't cardio....lol.

Has this conversation EVER taken place:

"Hey, you look like you've gotten in great shape"

"Yeah, been playing lots of softball".

We have a three home run over the fence rule. it's an out if you hit it out after three.
They hit three right away. I was playing right and that's pretty much where they hit every ball for the rest of the game...I seriously did a lot of running.

...and why is it that every time you have to chase down a long fly ball for the third out you then have to lead off the inning at bat >:( ???

One of my leagues has that same rule.

To flip sides, one of my infielders told me to "hustle up" once when I got off the field.  I explained - 2 games, 14 innings, 300 feet each way to the outfield and the bench, is 1.6 MILES more that I run than him each game to start, and that's without tracking the ball (and hitting tons of doubles, of course)........then I kindly asked him to shut the fuck up.

I'm fully committed to saying "Hey, you look like you've gotten in great shape! Been playing softball?" to someone before the summer is over.

I know we've been seeing the degradation of the term "cardio" go on for some time here now, but just standing there for 15 minutes and calling it cardio has to be rock bottom.

Re-introduction to cardio:

Take a deck of cards

Diamonds = Burpees
Hearts = Sit up
Clubs = Squat
Spade = Push up

Turn over a card, do the number on the card.  Run the deck.

12 sprints of 30 seconds at treadmill max (6 min mile pace), 20 seconds rest.

Short = about 36 min.

Did it after Wendler squat day

20 walking 15 on the stationary bike.

Been taking a break from the bike. For the last week it's been making my entire crotch numb.

What sorta times you knocking out for a 5K?
I did 20 flat on sat then Sunday was a 20K trail run. The weathers starting to get crappy, but I'm actually enjoying the cold after the long hot summer we had.

That was my first running in over a month, I think it was in the 22 minute range.  I did the first mile in 7, second in 7:30, last one in 8.  Last mile I had to push a bit, which was a wake up call since a 5k should barely break a sweat.  When I'm in better shape, I usually try to run at a 7:30 pace for anything in the 5-10 mile range.

For trails though, it all depends on the terrain.....can go up to 10 min miles when it's tough....

I don't really know what that all means, because we use proper units of measure like min per Km!  ;D
