Re: The Official Running thread!

Question. So right now, I'm running three times a week. Is there a general recommendation on cross-training on the non-running days, for example, lifting or swimming? Would that impede my progress with the running or enhance it? I'm planning on doing a 5K race around mid-October and I want to be goo...

Just one thing, how you measure your distances? A few different ways. You might have a pedometer, or if you have an iPhone/iTouch, you can use the Nike+ GPS app like I do to track your runs, or the iMapMyRun app works just as well too. Or if you don't have those, you can also use the website MapMyR...
