don't do treadmill or running for its negative health effects
??? The only evidence of negative health effects I can find are risk of knee injuries if you run more than your body is ready to handle. Any other negative effects I can find only manifest at greater than 20 miles/week and are very disputed.

The lighter you are, the better running is... short of skeletal.

You can get negative health effects for EVERY SINGLE exercise. You can always do it wrong, or overdo it, or do it wrong and overdo it. When running, get the proper shoes with proper inlays, and learn how to run (sounds crazy). And if you run long distances, do it regularly. You shouldn't run 10 miles only once a week, for example.

Listen to your body, in other words. I've gone deaf.

Re: Fitness Checkin

No, listening to your body could be how you GOT into a bad way in he first place. Sure was for me. You'll ALWAYS have cravings, and you'll ALWAYS have times you want to be lazy - you just gotta be smart in dealing with that your body needs and getting into the habit of changing things for the better.

Fitness goals 2015, anyone? Mine is to get back to 145 lbs in a month (gaineed 3-4 pounds in the last month between holidays and January work conferences) and then to maintain in the 145-150 range while adding some lifting in there. I did a fair amount of moving stuff around the house in the past few weeks, that I definitely would not have been able to do if I hadn't been losing the fat and building the muscle. I want to keep that trend going - and maybe, MAYBE get that mythical beach body six pack by summertime!

I have the opposite problem. I tend to workout too much without taking necessary time off. I'll sometimes go 2 straights weeks, lifting every single day (sometimes twice a day), and not getting enough sleep. Eventually it catches up with me, and I make myself sick.

My goals are the same as they always are: Lift heavy shit and build lots of muscle. Though this year I will paying special attention to my butt, as it seems to be lagging behind the rest of my body.

Re: Fitness Checkin

My goal for this year is to do an adventure race. Just a beginner one, not a multi-day expedition type.

This means learning some navigation, mountain biking, and being able to run 10 miles.

Re: Fitness Checkin

1. Get through a Spartan Race without failing an obstacle (Except, the spear throw I will accept failing).

2. Reach 160 pounds. Last year I started out 207 and finished 179. But, I reached 179 in August and I'm still 179.

3. Qualify for OCRWC in a Spartan Race. In the race I ran this Saturday I finished 47th in my age group, I would need to finish 20th.

4. Finish a half marathon in 1:45. Last year my time was 1:53:11.

5. Climb a V4. Two weeks ago I climbed my first V3.

It's true all exercise has some risk of injury and long term wear and tear. But the negative effects specifically associated with running require extreme distances to happen. Running 20-30 miles a week is inarguably healthy. (For people who don't have other health conditions that would make it dangerous).

I'm going to lose another ten pounds on top of what I took off. I now have a carrot. A friend has promised me a new swimsuit if I lose ten!

Re: Fitness Checkin

Goal for the year, get below 185 and maintain, for the first time since my teenage years(17yrs). The summertime is no problem to drop the weight, it's the winter months for me that are the worst. My job is seasonal and once I get laid off, there goes my exercise. I recently purchased a TRX and have been using it to be ready for the new season. My diet has been better this time around, so I should see some nice results.
