On another note, does anyone use any interested gadgets or apps when they exercise? Just read this article on Yahoo! http://games.yahoo.com/blogs/plugged...235234324.html
There's some pretty interesting stuff that seems like it can help out a lot.
30 minutes a day, 5 days a week, 2-3 miles depending upon what I felt like doing. At first I would run at 5 for 30, then upgrade to 6 for 30, 7 for 30, 8 for 30 then walk or powerwalk at 3 or 4 for 1 minute, then start the cycle over again, then at the 25 minute mark I would sprint at 10 for 30 seconds, I can now do 10 for 60 seconds. Then i would slow down the walk to 0 until 30 minutes. Usually that would equal 2.0 to 2.4 miles.
I don't use anything special. In fact I started running with regular dri-fit nike shorts and a dri-fit t-shirt with a mp3 player. Now I run with Combat Pro compression shorts and a compression t-shirt by nike, with a sweat band on my left arm. No mp3 player. I feel more comfortable running without the mp3 player for some reason.
