I love jogging and running. I do it about 5 days a week. I've been really dedicated to it for the last 2 months, because I'm going to Yuma, Az. for Memorial Day and might go over to the beach in Mexico while I'm there. I look pretty darn good now!! So, 2 weeks ago I bought myself 2 new bikinis. Wow!! l look hot in them!! Thank God I love running and jogging...

I compete in 5ks and like running- but only that sort of distance. Never want to train for a marathon: I'd be bored over that long of a distance and would resemble a fasting ostrich! Oh, and for the record I also like bikinis

Yeah, I prefer 5K's and 10K's too. I used to compete, but now I just do it for fitness. So, I don't go further than 5-6 miles. Just enough to do 1 hour of jogging (my cardio for the day) and 30 minutes of strength training or Pilates. That's all I do. Just for fitness.

Leana76...that's a good fitness routine and I hope you stick with it. I got caught up in the running boom in the early 1980s. We all went crazy with it as we increased our mileage attempting to outrace others who were doing the same. By 1982 I was running 80 to 100 miles a week. Most of the guys I ran with back then can't run at all now and haven't for years...shot knees. I now bicycle 6 days a week and run on the mountain trails behind my house 1 day a week. So...I really think the running is great and it sounds like you are going about it in a sensible way.

I used to, and I need to get back into it. I'm going to start next week. I bought some protein powder for a meal replacement as well.

I used to run quite a bit, probably 2 miles a day. But, my knees finally just couldn't take it anymore. I think I did my knees in playing tennis for 15 years.. I've let myself get out of shape since I haven't been able to run, so I have to try and find another way to get back into it. Probably bicycling or something low impact.

Running/Jogging is basically 90% mental and 10% physical. You have to be in a right state of mine to jog/run 4-5 days a week for 45 minutes to 1 hour. If you're in the right frame of mind, then you can run/jog whenever.

I go out jogging on dirt trails in the hills and canyons of a nearby wilderness park 2 or 3 times a week. Today I went for a 7 mile loop that took about 1 hr 20 minutes. It was nice and cool this morning, I usually go early to avoid the heat. There's a drinking fountain at my halfway point in the park, so that helps to prevent dehydration and I don't need to lug a water bottle. I don't run at a real fast pace, just a comfortable pace. Can't run too fast on the trails, otherwise you'll trip over a rock or turn an ankle. I bike ride to work quite a few times a week to mix things up to avoid repetitive stress injuries, at my age (52) you learn to pay close attention to how the body reacts to exercise and stress. I agree, much of it is mental which is why I enjoy the trails that wind through hills and canyons of our nearby park. Much better than watching cars go by on the city streets.

I found out, just 4 days ago, that there is a running group in my area! So, I've joined that. We meet about 3 days a week at 4:30 am and start running/jogging/walking. It's fantastic. Now I can have a running/jogging friend. It will be more interesting. I haven't ran with a group since my Army days and my track team days in high school.
