Miltary.com -- "Improve your PFT run time"

For your distances, this is the best resource. I've used it and it works. http://www.military.com/military-fit...r-pft-run-time

And yes, go to Dick Pond's or Fleet Feet and get decent shoes. If you're never going to run again after this I suppose I would condone just getting something at DSW that fits. Get 1/2 size bigger than what you think fits.

It stops literally less than a minute after i stop running. I've had this sh..t as long as I remember myself running any long enough distances. 100m was my all time favorite but I hated long runs with passion - I guess too annoying or boring to run in circles . In any case, I could be wrong in my assumptions I suppose.

Thanx a bunch for the link. Great stuff. What's in regards to shoes - I got a New Balance Motion Control. It made a world of difference to jump in them after the crap I was in. I mean my feet didn't start running by themselves but it felt sooooo much better I thought I made a right choice (at least judging by price I paid )

I'm gonna pull the BS card. I've never met anyone that favored the 100 that was worried about a 300 (again, who runs a 300?). And you say you have touble running over 7 MPH? Much less, slowing down the pace and running a sub 12 min. mile. That's slow as fuck. What's the real story?

You can pull all BS cards you want but since I started running (mostly involuntary at school ) I was always much better at short distances than anything longer than a lap. Even then, at the end of that lap I was spitting my lungs out I was so out of breath if it was "lets-see-who's-faster" run. Any more or less significantly long run would normally make me switch to walking after the third lap the most. I have no idea what the hell was (or still is) going on there but my first guess was that I'm perhaps doing something wrong. Unfortunately for me I could never get any help on this subject for variety of reasons (the biggest one of course is me). I never had a need to be running long stretches anyhow.
Regardless, now I have this test that I have to pass and I'm back to the issue. That's in particular why I'm here, so perhaps someone could correct something I'm doing wrong and very likely do not even know or see it or at least show me some direction. I quit smoking 5 years ago, I'm working out 5 days out of 7. I'm 5'10" at 179lb. I feel some progress going on but suspect it would be more productive with some direction. So, a friend of mine a little while ago mentioned that CLSB (which I wasn't a very frequent visitor of) has a runners corner, so there I was asking questions. I know nothing about running other than I perhaps bought some nice pair of running shoes. Does some of it sounds like BS? Perhaps. Only 'coz have no knowledge of how to organize it. Now, can someone help me on this subject?
Thank you all in advance

Really, military.com was my best resource when I was starting from zero. It's designed for beginners and it's simple enough for the jarheads to understand

Google some of the aches and pains you feel (e.g., "ankle tenderness after running") and you should find some thoughts/ideas that are helpful to you. It's a learn as you go thing.

And feel free to run anything by this group. For every one person who calls BS there's another who thinks it's legitimate, 2 who think the argument is funny, 2 who don't give a shit, 4 who like to stir the pot and piss the first two people off, and several hundred more who haven't even read the thread.

You have no endurance. Nothing is wrong. You're not born with the athletic ability to run long distances(unless you're etheopian or something) you have to work for it.

Thanks again for the site. I'm going through it right now.

BTW, does anyone know by any chance any place in NW suburbs (around Palatine) with some marked trails where I can more or less precisely time myself at?

Go to mapmyrun.com
There are tons of marked runs already planned out on that site. So many, in fact, that you'll spend some good time trying to find a few near you that you like. The best ones have mile markers (e.g., "this is a 3 mile run starting at X and ending at Y. Mile 1 is the intersection of a&b, mile 1.5 is the intersection of c&d, and then to complete the 3 miles you turn around and go back to X").

If you're still training, just run on the same stuff you plan on running on for your test. I might be wrong but by reading some of your posts it sounds like you're weak mentally when it comes to working out. You don't need a fancy place to run. You don't need energy drinks or crazy supplements. Eliminate the things that you won't always have access to. Go run outside anywhere and time yourself to see your progress. Take advantage of this hot, humid weather to train. Drink plenty of water, replace those lost electrolytes, and eat healthier. Everyone feels the same pain you do when they train. The ones who suck it up and train harder, succeed. Suck it up!

Any updates on your times?

The situation has changed since my previous posts. I'm muuuuch better now. I guess running 4 days a week helps after all . But the running track ... it's what I'm going to be running on at the test, that's the reason I'm looking for it. In any case, thanks a bunch for reply. Working on sucking it up
