i posted in another forum about how i'm a cyclist, but the fall wind brings HORRIBLE rides. Well, this being my first fall season as a cyclist, i quickly realized i hate the wind.

that means i might switch it up a bit and add something into my cycling agenda...running.

SO. that being said, i'm not much of a runner. i have played soccer for 12 years but thats the extent of my running capabilities.

i need advice. i need advice on what i SHOULD be doing (distance wise) and any other tips or advance from my beloved TE friends!

thanks girls!!

Well I started as the girl who would do anything to get out of running. I hated it with a passion in middle school, high school, college. But one day I just decided to try the treadmill (how I started). I ran .10 miles and was beat, then I walked. Over time I would run just a little more. Then I finally went out of the gym. I ran 1.5 miles the first time. Slowly it got boring and I kept running just a bit further. When I was in my prime I built up to 6-7 miles. Now I am trying to get back into it and slowly adding a lap at my little local trail (.8 miles). I have been going 2 months and am up to 3.2-4 miles.

i ran for the first time yesterday for 2 miles! i just put on my shoes and started out my door in my neighborhood! i just kept running until my boyfriend called and told me he was at my house so i had to head back. BUT I WANTED TO KNOW HOW FAR I RODE! so i took my bike and rode the same trail that i ran and my computer said two miles!!! i was so excited!
