    *i started posting workouts on page 580
    *running on a treadmill is a really bad way to assess yourself.(i could go into the reasons but...just go on the track and youll see)

    -Go to the track lmk how fast you do a mile and half. (3mile run would be better, but if your not use to that distance yet...) Once you have done this and have a time, shoot me a pm and ill guide you from there.

    Thanks a lot coldblood, you are right probably not a good way to assess myself i noticed that with a treadmill you can only keep it at one speed with running outside you can be running faster/slower at any given point so i want to definitely start doing that. Thanks for the info ill pm you soon

    Running outside will definitely prepare you better. That's what I was doing for a couple of months before it started getting really bad out. Don't bother trying it with this weather. Stick to the treadmill until this snow and ice is out of the way. Just remember to keep improving every week and you'll be ok for now. You will still be building your stamina anyway. Slipping and falling or getting really sick (or, god forbid, getting hit by some idiot driving too fast on an icy road) will cause you to miss gym time and really hurt you in the long run. It's not worth the risk for me. I'm not even gonna bother running outside till next month. Until, you will see me killing it on the treadmill. Safely lol. But that's just my two cents. If you think you can safely run outside right now, then do it.

    LOL....stop....right. Tell me, do you think the guys scheduled to work in the firehouse had the day off 'cause of extreme cold and lightening? I can't recall anytime they've cancelled proby school for the day....we work 24/7/365, mind as well get used to it in proby school too.

    They won't run you outside.....but trust me, the indoor 90 minutes of calisthenics will leave you WISHING for a 5 mile run.
