Hi! I actually gave up dieting when I started running one year ago this month! I have lost a little weight since then and now I am back to this forum to help lose the last 10 lbs. I love running!

Hi, pkadams! Welcome back!

I'm really enjoying my new earbuds - they work really well. And I did my fastest 2 miles yesterday. I credit the earbuds (j/k)

That will vary alot depending on where you are in your journey! you have to increase gradually or you will get injured and that sucks big time. I just happened to be looking at my mileage totals so I will tell you , but remember I have been running for a year, I weigh 139 today and I have a friend who is a trainer and has helped me a long the way. January (injured) 58 miles, Feb. 54 miles (cold, rainy, depressed) March ( training for 10 mile race) 78 miles. I did a half marathon in December and hurt my IT band and had to limit my runs to 4 miles for about 2 months until it healed. I'm hoping to increase to at least 20 miles per week. Even though it is so freakin hot and humid already in Southeast Texas! happy running!

It took me a really long time to build up to a 10k from a 5k but now adding the km is a lot easier. On average I run 30-40km a week.

i've only been running for 2.5 months. i usually run around 10 miles a week in walk/run intervals. i'm trying to build endurance and speed, but it's going slowly. i run every other day and then i cross train on every other day except saturday.

btw, i tried the earbuds that wrap around the back of the head and they work so much better.

Cough...well, I'm not really near you guys at all. I do 30 min on the treadmill about 3x/week. I'm really looking forward to the snow going away so I can get in some outdoor runs and not have to worry about treadmill limits. The treadmill does help me to work on speed, though.

i agree with you, ferrygirl. it's great to be able to run outside. it's started to warm up here, so i've been hitting the outdoor trails. i take one of the dogs and they love it.

i've decided i'm going to add a day of running up hills in preparation for a 10k that's coming up. i hope that doing different things will build endurance and speed faster.

Yes! Do hills and speedwork such as intervals. It will help your speed. Fartleks are good too.

today was magical! all of the sudden i could run without stopping for most of my 3 mile run. i have a few walking breaks for 30 seconds here and there, but no more interval. i ran 90% of it. not getting discouraged about being slower than i'd like is really starting to pay off.

one more month until my first race. a 7k. i believe i'll be ready.
