im not a runner never have been unless it was too the roach coach. But a sub 4min mile? cmon maaaan fish story maybe? thats like record breaking amigo, isn't it? for high schoolWhen I was a teenager I ran 5 - 10 miles every day. Best time on the mile was 3:58. Best time on a 5k was 18:12. I could eat 5 meals a day (not snacks, meals) and not gain a pound. Actually, if I wasn't careful I could easily drop 10+ pounds in just a week or two.
Due to issues with my left knee and ankle I haven't run in years. Light jogs are doable but I defiantly can't run like I did when I was 18. Problem is, something in my brain doesn't seem to understand that my body can't run like that anymore. And it doesn't seem to understand that there is a pace between walking and running. So now here I sit, after trying to do a light jog, with the worst shin splints I've ever had...
I think I'm just going to try and get a rowing machine.
