you just got into it but you're demotivated. lool. not good. stop stressing the clock.

lol i was running very relaxed/slow and just couldn't believe that even at that slowish pace of 5:something i was struggling to reach 500m .. talk about a reality check! It seems i've barely started to crawl when i thought i was well on my way to run  :o

i don't get why you'd expect the treadmill to translate much.
- treadmill running = you're keeping up with something that's forcing you to move
- real running = you're pushing yourself entirely
- in racing, there's a bit of the 'keeping up with something' effect

i literally didn't think the disparity would be that huge. It's almost like there is zero carry over. The only thing i can think of is if you use the treadmill to work at the limit of your ability it might be training CV system but in a really unique way which won't transfer to real world running. So i think the only way treadmill running can help you is you already have a good amount of real world running training and the treadmill just keeps, in LBBS words, 'the embers burning'.

as for treadmill running being fools gold ... ya sure, if you're trying to equate it to real world running. but, it's definitely running, so it is still improving qualities important to running. it just doesn't translate directly, so you have to do real runs to realize any gains you'd get from the treadmill. some elites swear by the treadmill .. it's a small percentage, but some find it very effective. they do crazy runs on there.. but then they also hit the roads etc.

said it even better. you nailed it

Mo Farah has tons of clips of himself on the treadmill. He does some long runs on there (15-20 miles and such).
yea actually it was from watching mo's video about treadmill running that i thought i was on the right track. thanks mo, you gave me false belief :(  treadmill running probably just acts as some kind of recovery for him and not much. i have to start from scratch now. any ideas? my first goal might be to actually run a km in the real world and then try to improve on the distance/time over time? any suggestions?

found some epic articles regarding Josh Brashears.

14:56 5k in the first article, at a local jingle bell jog 5k happening this weekend (37th annual).

https://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/fl-xpm-2001-12-02-0112010525-story.html

https://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/fl-xpm-2002-04-29-0204280221-story.html

https://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/fl-xpm-2002-05-03-0205030031-story.html

basically, a progression of news articles, building up brashears wanting to beat ronnie hollassie in the benz corp run 5k.

pretty sick.



a bunch of nice josh brashears articles:

30 min jog
15 minute walk
30 minute Tabata 1 min on 5 sec off random exercises

Gonna walk for 45 n head out.

I walked for 15 earlier because a couple of idk chick's in their 50s went on the track and was walking like they were 90 so I got irritated n hit up the tabata.


Diets been whatever lately, I haven't been eating terrible but still putting on weight.  Idk how, i defy science. 

So what I've been doing is a fasting from around 8pm to noon just a lot of protein for the most part.  I could just be backed up and a lot of water weight.  Beats me ill just keep at it.

Today was small portion of sausage, 3 eggs, coffee, 1 slice of bread with a small amount of butter for my bfast/lunch.  Will eat at 5 then 730ish.  Probably a meat with veggies and 1 will be a protein shake n fruit or something.
