Just think it feels good.  I don't like road running very much, so anything that distracts from it helps - trails, rocks, rain, hills, etc...

Agreed...I always psych myself up to go running outside, but then I think of those things you listed and I wind up on the treadmill at Planet Fitness next to old men and fat chicks :D

Just an FYI - I advised Grape to do a Light and a Challenge first before doing HEAVY.   He has balls of steel to go straight for this.   Heavy is a 24+ hour kick in the balls over and over and over.

Been working up to it gradually.  Started with 2 miles, etc...and kept increasing.  Traps are sore and my busted shoulder really hurts, but that could have been from last night's dips and shit.

Everyone can benefit by changing up the training from time to time.  For many people - just doing typical BB workout gets boring after years of that nonsense,.

I have to figure out this boot thing.  Salomon's aren't likely going to work.

I always went with Magnums much better than our issued boots in most cases if running. If living out in the field then not but for your purposes i think good.
