while reading this thread I see a lot about the amount of distance/time people are running.  You must pay just as much attention to rest and recovery.  Having run 5 marathons (including Boston), I have found out the hard way about not resting and overtraining.   Just something to keep in mind...

I was doing three miles as part of my daily routine. You guys inspired me to "take it up another notch".

Wow!  what a difference a little protein and carbs makes prior to my run.  I was feeling real good during the whole thing, breathing was eased....just felt flawless.

4.38mi/45mins

Awesome - I try to get a banana in me before running, sometimes a granola bar.

yeah, so far my body is handling it well, no abnormal or prolonged aches or pain.  I add Ab Ripper X (P90X) on my off days, or the days that aren't scheduled for a run by my RunKeeper app.

very good!  how did you do that by the way??

I took today off from running, just didn't have the gas yesterday during my scheduled 2.5mi run and thought I might be overtraining it.  I missed it immensly.  I try to alternate my scheduled runs with fat burning on my off days, but tend to get my heartrate up too high to be effective.

I have put 5lbs back on since I dipped to 199, not sure if thats' good weight or sloppy eating....

I use map my run to keep track of my workouts.  I don't trust the calorie burn on it though.  From May 2010 to late June 2013 I didn't jog a half mile total.  After losing a big chunk of my weight I thought I needed to try. I went 1.7 miles and here I am a month and a half later.  I feel blessed that I've been able to get to this point at this pace. I will say that 33 feels a lot different than 23, but I am in the best shape of my adult life right now.

Here is what I use for my calories I can select walking or running and net or gross calories.  This in conjunction with map my run has worked well for me.

I used to use Nike +, but changed to RunKeeper in June and I am pleased with what I am getting out of it so far.
I also like that it can track various cardio activities and keep them separate such as walking and running.
Keep up the good work guys.

I've some how pulled a muscle in my back from my right shoulder blade down to the middle of my back.  I have 4 pairs of running shoes I alternate out I never wear the same pair in consecutive runs. I'm a shoe whore. 

My favorites.
Adidas Marathon 10
Adidas Clima Cool
Reebok Smooth Flex
Reebok Real Flex

I got my 5mi in yesterday, first time evah with that distance.  I really can tell a difference between eating oatmeal and eating pbj sammich prior to my runs.  the latter helps me a bunch more....or maybe it's the Gatorade energy chews that I take also.

I like those Gatorade Prims for cardio type workouts. They don't hype you up like a preworkout, but you can definitely tell once you are doing your workout that they give you a little more to get through.

Also, I started again on the L-Arginine. I'm a firm believer in that stuff. It really does keep you from tiring out as fast.

I take 3 grams 20-40 mins before I start. At about 10-15 mins in my legs go into auto pilot and I'm gold for the next 60- 90 mins.

Just seeing this thread, so allow me to contribute my $.02.

I'm 32, 5'10, about 190-ish.  I really do enjoy running, but running doesn't like me.  I'm in the Nat'l Guard and have to run 1.5 miles in under 14 minutes.  And boy do I struggle.  Prior to my last fitness test I installed the RunKeeper app on my phone (love it, by the way) and ran every other day for about 3 months.  I could never get past 2 miles.  Ever!  I'd be totally gassed after 6 times around the track.  I'd then alternate running/walking for another 20 minutes or so or even run the bleachers.  Never could get my stamina up.  The only thing that I can positively say worked was doing burpees.  My 1.5 mile run time dropped significantly after implementing them into my workouts.  I also never dropped ANY weight.  None.  My diet is far from perfect though, and about 2hrs. after running I'd have a ferocious appetite and eat junk. 

Anyways, I had these results for my fitness test last month:
36" waist circumference
63 pushups (60 seconds)
58 sit-ups (60 seconds)
13:33 1.5 mile run 
And I barely passed.  As I get older it's getting rougher and rougher. 

What's wrong with me?

first off, thanks for your service....and I'm not an expert, by any means.

You may not be getting enough carbs prior to your working out, as I suffered from the same thing, until others in here suggested tips.  You will most likely have to cut out on at least half of the bad stuff if you intend to lose weight.  I cut back on sodas and sugar laden carbs, losing approx 11lbs.

that's a beginning

I am currently trying Shred Matrix, after reading some reviews on it and seeing people talk about getting an energy shot after taking it.
So far, not much luck for me.
A banana, a spoonful of peanut butter and a spoonful of honey seem to work best for me about 20 minutes before beginning.

I run between 3.5 & 5 miles 2-3 times a week. Sometimes I'll run some shorter distances cross country, but I do it in a 3/4 speed run and sprint the last 400meters or so.
I hate to run as much as I like it. Weird huh?

I recently started running again at the encouragement of a good friend.  It has been wonderful but I admit I had a false sense of how outta shape I actually was.

I have always walked and worked out to keep tone and am not overweight.   However, running is a different type of conditioning for my lungs, heart and everywhere else it seems! Lol!

Trying to be able to run 5Ks and then build to 15 to 20 miles if possible. :)

On your build up to 15 or 20 miles runs remember the 10% rule for your inceases in mileage and you'll be there in no time.
