    I used to jog a lot for maybe 15 years. I averaged 5 - 6 miles per run, about 4 times per week. I did 10Ks and 5Ks occasionally. I ran so much I ran the lateral meniscus cartilage right out of my knees. I had my last knee surgery 10 years ago. I haven't ran since. I miss it a lot. A runner's high is a wonderful thing!

    Cool

    I have flat feet and wrong forms when I ran, so PAIN on the knee and back was killing me. Now I am pain free because of corrected forms and proper foot strike. Being a minimalist is the key to the puzzle. It teaches you how to run correctly (avoid HEEL strike) to ease the load on your body. I run half M every weekend and 2-6 miles twice on weekdays. Shoes in rotation are 2 x Vibram 5 fingers (short distances), 3 x NB (2x4mm, 1x00mm), 1 x Misunu (stability-Long Distances), and 1 Puma Flat race. From 205lb to 170lb, Cholesterol is back to norm range.................Top it all, RUNNER's HIGH is better than BEER.

    doggie750,
    I don't heel strike either. My feet landed mid/forefoot, which resulted in no ITBS pain or shin splint. Good for ya on the weight-loss bro, congrats.

    I enjoy running, wish I had more time for it. When I do run, its either 4.3mi or 6.5mi, depending on how many laps I take. I was doing good for the last few weeks, averaging about 20 miles a week, but have fallen short the last couple weeks. I'm doing my 3rd tough mudder not this weekend, but next. I love them. Always a good time with friends.

    I never had any foot issues.

    When you are running correctly, your feet should make almost no noise, just a little pat, pat, pat . . . . Also after about 15 minutes your breathing rate should be such that you should be able to have a conversation with someone (while running) without sounding short of breath.

    I'm talking about jogging now, not high intensity competitive running.

    Great description! :) Cheers to you for making the effort to run outside in such hot weather in Florida.

    I've been running for a few years now. Only run 3 miles at a time, 2-3 times per week. Try to do at least a couple of 5k races each year ... although it's been harder to keep that going in the past couple of years as we get busier with kids.

    Usually 4 miles/day about 5 times/week. Keeps me slim with still plenty enough time for beer on the weekends. And I do enjoy the runners high.

    I have a 4runner in the driveway now......does that count? :)

    Running always reminds me of what we had to do for punishment in various sports practices growing up, so I've never taken a liking to it. I prefer "accidental" exercise during a fun activity, if that makes sense at all. But more power to you running types. I admire your gusto.

    Former decent runner. Currently run about 2 to 4 times per week. Sure has helped get my weight down since I've gotten back into it.

    For me, using Superfeet inserts has been extremely beneficial.

    So Jealous. I have had my back hurting and also I have a high hamstring injury (literally a pain in the ass). My wife is about to run herfirst marathon. I have done two 1/2 marathons with her and I am bumming I cant do the marathon with her too. I am sitting out for about six months and hopefully it heals sooner. Anyway I love to run and miss it. I am getting fat!
