Hmm be a few km you'd be talking about for each training session twice a week. I want to get into sprinting but I don't think I can just 'leap' into that yet since Im only starting out. You'd do a few km on the treadmill anyway, but difference is your out in the open with other runners of all different abilities, the heat, the breeze, damn it can be tough.

Typically what I did yesterday at my first session was:
3 laps of a soccer pitch as a warm-up
2 laps of a soccer pitch as a cooldown (after the main training)

Now for the main training (the track is 400m):

800m running, 400m jogging
800m running, 400m jogging
400m running, 400m jogging
400m running, 400m jogging
400m running, 400m jogging

That's what we did yesterday. You are allowed a quick refreshment of water after your jog, your talking a few seconds break really and back at it again. Now since that was my first training, I dunno if they always do that on track or what, he says they do different things and during winter usually its road runs etc.

Ask your parents how easy it is for them to get out of bed. I know of no runner in advanced age (50s+) who can immediately put weight on their feet in the morning. If your folks can, then good on them they're the exception, not the rule.

Maybe, but I'll bet they'll be getting out of that bed a few years longer than non-runners.

They act about 15 years younger than they are, maybe they are freaks of nature but then again growing up around them and all of their friends who do similar things, I don't know of any of them that are having reprecutions and they all still are very active. Hopefully some of it is genetics though and I wont have any joint issues!

Dynasty, IMO since you are bulking you just mainly have to make sure you are taking in an excess amount of calories. From looking at what you did and that your rest was just getting a quick drink and small conversation. Your running training looks like it was long distance intervals. How hard are you running? are they at a pretty fast pace? is it timed? and did you lift weights that day? This is all important because if you are really looking to seriously add some bulk you have to watch your EPOC (Excess Post-excercise oxygen consumption).

Also, like others are saying you have to watch your recovery. After a pretty intense running like that, it takes your body a couple days in order to fully recover from it. Hopefully the second running day is more of a slow steady state and can be used as a recovery from the preceding running session. It's hard to tell someone not to do something they enjoy doing. But there is a lot of factors that play in to the goal you want to achieve.

All in all, I'll tell you to stay hydrated, make sure on tuesdays and thursdays you eat like a frickin beast ESPECIALLY if you are also weighting training on those days It seems like its a good group of people that you are running with too. Hope this helps, best of luck.

Thanks Dmaipa! I am lifting on those days currently (not working legs however). My coach says to do a slow paced jog on the day after training, my bro seems to reckon its a recovery run to get blood flowing into my legs or something like that. I am trying to eat like an animal when I can hehe I am not sure what tomorrows running will bring as he didn't give any indication, but he said we'll try something different. But I am trying to eat anyway lol, more so than ever, hard but ya.... They say you shouldn't eat 2 hours before running so I am going to try get out of gym a little earlier or go a little earlier etc and get in a meal after it, besides just a protein shake etc.

The running club is one of the tops in Ireland and definately where I live, my coach is a former Olympian and other stuff, its also where 1 of our female athletes trained from her beginnings and came 2nd in this years European games 2 weeks ago, so it does have a good reputation.

glad i could help in some way...just eat like a beast. Also, how others mentioned its going to be hard on your joints, how much do you weigh anyways? I dont think you need to worry about it.

Im approx 72kg now which which is about 158 pounds. In Jan or so I'll be cutting so it be 'easier' I guess on my joints. And I'd be cutting a good 20pounds off me I guess in 5-6months. Or that's the current plan
