what? I can have a normal leg workout and still go for a light run the day after, its not gonna fuck with my growth in my legs and isnt gonna affect my running bar some fatigue. a 10 mile run isn't typically an intense one and as such not essential for anyones progress. i was just pointing out that ur 'never' in bold made it seem simpler than it is.

So as a follow up, I've been making a new workout schedule. For clarification, those who told me to focus on the time rather than the distance, does this mean I shouldn't be worried if when I wear myself out it's shorter than my goal? As long as I'm running 30 minutes to an hour at a good pace (10 minutes per mile appears to be my goal).

do more high intensity interval training, paired with more distanced based training once a week ish, again I highly recommend you get a coach because it will make all the difference in the world.

I think this phrasing/mentality may be the issue. If you are regularly getting worn out before your goal, then you are either going too fast, are making poor workout goals, or most likely a combination of both. Pretty much every workout you do should be well within your own realm of possibility. If you get tired at 45 minutes, then you should be making your workout goals 30-40 minutes in duration, not 45-60. Going to exhaustion frequently is a recipe for mental and physical burnout (I've been there, done that. It can lead to serious medical issues). Always train well within your own realm of possibility, and don't rush to push your boundaries. This pushing of boundaries may explain why you are hitting a wall. You can't absorb the training when you are going too hard, so ease up a good bit and let your body absorb the stimulus you give it.

I will send you a PM with my email address. Feel free to shoot me your schedule or ask any questions. I don't really use steam anymore.

Hi Dreamboat, I've missed your coverage of ozfortress while we're both tired beyond our minds at ungodly hours. Do they even still sell bowflex? I wouldn't be interested as I live alone in an apartment complex, but I genuinely haven't heard of that company since I was 10.
