not /fa/ but running's good for you, keep it up OP
>>
>>9132025
is that a female, i cant tell
>>
>>9132025
do you have any tips to start running?

i don't think the "couch to 2k" program will work because i can already jog/run 2km without stopping

i fucking love running btw
>>
>>9133281
It's not how far you can run without stopping it's about building up your strength and condition.
>>
>>9133281
bridge to 10k
>>
>>9133281
op here, I like to train by minuets run. it's tough to tell without previous running history, but 5 to 6 days a week with one day longer than the others. Gradually step up your mileage for races or what not. Keep a pace range that's relaxed, but fast enough to slowly improve.
>>
>>9133296
wait, explain? how do you measure/improve your strength and condition? thought running is mostly endurance for long distances, speed for shorter ones

>>9133337
>check em
thanks, do you know any guides or anything on getting started?
>>
>>9133296
will take a look at that one. looks like a good program.
>>
Cardio kills gains, therefore you weedy running faggots will never look good in clothes
>>
>>9133302
yeah, or couch to 5k as a middle ground... You can also use that zombie run app to help make it more interesting(Its literally the same rune cycle as couchto5k, prompted with GPS/sensors in your phone, and with a zombie theme)

The biggest thing i can tell people is to make sure they train their VMO first(just google it) If you're vmo isnt up to your running regimen, you will hit a wall early on that will have you feeling like shit until its up to snuff.

>leett

I googled it, so you should train your knees? I see a bunch of videos that show up; I'll try some of them.

it feels good, and it's probably healthier than smoking or heroin
>>
>>9133387
>probably healthier than smoking or heroin

thanks, you made me laugh
>>
>>9133375
who needs gains when you can run a mile in under 5 minutes?
>>
>>9133383
yeah, its your inner knee muscle. The outer knee muscles over-develop in most people from day-to-day shit.
Deep squats and weighted lunges with your rear leg resting on a chair are the best ones i found.

When i started running, i was doing 5k every day 5 times a week... Around month 3, my left leg failed hard because i didnt train my VMO properly. I was pretty much out for 1 month until i focused on it properly. After 2 weeks of doing light targeted stuff, i was able to get back to my routine, and am now doing 10k runs every 2end day.
>>
>>9133365
op again, I train at like an easy pace range of 6:00 to 6:20 for like 10 to 20 mile runs. For tempo runs i like to around 5 to 10 miles at 5:30 pace. For race pace/interval workouts I run around 4:30 to 4:50 pace. And i run a 5k in 15:00 so that's comparative to my fitness. you can use like the jack daniels running calculator o determine paces for yourself.
>>
>>9133822
thank you

what shoes do you run in?
>>
>>9133836
nike pegasus 31's

>>
>>9133948

retard

>>9133952
Unless you're straight out of Kenya I doubt the average black man doesn't actually run long distance. Myself included. My body is built for sprinting, not for running marathons.
Not really being racist.
