1) My wind is there...I never lose my breath, but my legs get tired. How do I get the legs back quicker, and make em have more endurance?
2) I remember the glory days...I run a little under a 12 minute mile pace, but I felt ok one day after three miles and pushed myself the last mile, I ran 10:30 4th mile (I was done after that though)...Should I even worry about pace and concentrate on extending the distance. If so, how much time should I try to cut per workout per week?
3) I am at 4 miles a day, at least 5 days a week...there is a Half-Marathon in Dec...is this an unrealistic goal to shoot for.
4) OK, I hate bringing it up, but it will stop a workout cold if it is an issue. I'm fatter than I used to be, and upper-inner thighs rub together...How do I prevent the heat rash that goes along with that, and how do I treat it if it occurs to get going again?
