Its ok, not great, but its a start. The distance and speed you can run said distance will increase rapidly (relatively speaking) at first. Mix up the running, do long slower runs (eg 2 or 3 10minute miles), faster short ones (like you just did), multiple intervals (eg 6 x 400m) and sprints (eg 10 x 100m) and youll improve in all aspects.

Wow Nate Campbell?? You should keep that connection.

Yeah, i ran this weekend too. I did like 7 miles yesterday and 6 miles today, plus a little 2 1/2 mile on Saturday. It's aiite.

I can run 5 miles in 40 minutes. 2 miles in 10 minutes you know...it's nuttin.

One step at a time...at least you're running.

so you could run 1 miles in less than 5 min. that pretty fast

I dunno, i never ran one mile hella hard. i don't think it works like that. I still don't get the times myself. Technically, i'm not a runner.

for 1 mile thats pretty poor tbh.. but most people when they start running do it around that time, as you get fitter your time will increase.

aaah i see the myth u need roadwork to be a successful boxer is alive and well.

i may not have any "credentials" or "skills" as a boxer but i was once a prominent streetfighter round my neighbourhood, known as vodka fats (in my prime i was 5''10 and 220 lbs, with a streetfighting record of 36-22)

i did hard time and kicked some serious ass

to improve cardio i mainly used a method known as pig running, i basically committed a petty crime in front of a cop and then ran for it with them chasing me


no streetfighter has ever used roadwork, back when i was 15 i took out a slick mofo known as daisy cool, the local tough cat... i did it weighing at 5''8 and 177 lbs, no roadwork no nothing, snuck up behind the cat and knocked his head in

For real, for real? 36-22? Did those include brawls with multiple people? Or just one on one? How did you manage to keep count? LOL.

I'd like to know more about your street fighting days. Seeing how you're 10 years older than me.

Pig running huh? LMFAO! That's the funnies form of training I've heard of, especially when more and more pigs come in to follow you

anythin uphill is good. If it hurts, then you're doing something right.

It hurts so good. You know what motivates me to feel the burn? I just think of what my opponent and competition is doing; cus there's always someone out there training harder than you.

I've been running like a fcukin dog for the past week. I think i clocked in about23 miles for the week. Over the holiday weekend i ran twice a day. No *****.

I need to rest though. Tomorrow (Friday) i ain't doin *****.

****in hell man - twice a day is alot, but you're right about the whole 'someone is always training harder than you' thing.

do you run long distances or do you prefer to keep the running short and strong?

I've always been a sprinter, but i had to adapt for endurance running.

Sometimes when i'm feeling real nutty i run 3 miles and THEN do sprints.

I play soccer or Futbol too. So that might attribute to my gazelle like running.

Gotta keep training mayne.

my advice is don't kill yourself at first. make sure you warm up a lot and have a good pair of sneakers. otherwise you can get shin splints which are the WORST! they dont heal unless you literally stop running and will only get worse and worst (eventually they can lead to stress fractures).

One poster was talking about slower distance running and then mixing it with shorter, faster running. Thats probably the best advice (running-wise) that you can do. Make sure you hydrate as well. And just start off easy and you will get better and better. Last year while I was in training for the Marine Officer program I would run 3 miles in about 24 minutes. By the end of officer candidate school I was running 3 miles in around 18:30. My 1 mile time was under 6 minutes. Just build up. Goodluck, because running sucks! lol
