Hey.

I should be over in the UK by January '09.

By the looks of things the new PJFT will be in full affect by then.

My upper body strength is amazing... here's my stats.

Press-ups in 2 minutes: 58
Sit ups in 2 minutes: 72
Pull Ups: 9

I usually do circuit training every other day to keep my fitness levels up.

BUT.

I haven't been running in a long time. I was just wondering, what's the best way to get my distance up quickly?

Should I just start off with running like this....:

Week 1: 1 mile.
Week 2: 1.5 miles
Week 3: 2.0 miles
Week 4: 2.5 Miles
Week 5: 3.0 Miles
Week 6: 3.5 Miles...

You get the rest. Do you think that's sufficient enough?

Thanks,
Jamie

I got good at running a bit like that. I'd run upto 5-6 times a week, starting off at 2.75 miles. I started around April. I just kept running longer distances everytime and then one day I ran 18 miles. Just from starting out at 2.75miles. Now I'm considering the NY marathon.

Yeah, sounds decent, maybe you can incorporate some swimming and/or bike riding for some CV.

Just remember dont go mad, since you will end up tearing a muscle or getting shin splints or a stress fracture.

all the best mate
