OOO yes I do agree with you brother fitness and weight lose should be NUMBER 1!!!!! whether its a treadmill, wii-fit free run in ur living room just running/walking in place.. My hopes are that as the weather changes from cold to warmer weather is for folks to get outside and walk/jog/run etc. in the environment, wind, heat, hills, Its a new challenge. Benefits us to be in the sun also for the increase in melatonin and vitamin D.
If I came off as a brasher it was not my intention, and I'm sorry if I upset anyone.

MIAMIVT--no disagreement about the bottom line you stated.

My askew POV comes from an annual road race the local Y's host. Dreadmill runners vs. Road runners. It's a moderate hilly, 5K. The 5th annual one will be coming up soon.
To date, the primarily dreadmill runners either DNF or end up gasping and slogging across the finish line. Those that do the majority or their running/jogging with Mother Nature, finish early and usually sprinting across the finish line.

As far as a specific type of workout: dreadmill runners are no competition for road runners. There is a difference, don't know whether it's mostly mental or physical.

Yet, another free sermon.

"I can do all things if I just get off my but's and admit I'm in control of me!" SGM 1:1-5 The only real verse I need.

I do 75% of my running on the treadmill. I work at a University so the gym is free and the equipment is really nice. It hasn't been warm enough here to really go out and run, and I typically run on my lunch hour. I don't see the big problem with running on the treadmill. This shouldn't be a "real runner" vs "fake runner" thing it should be about losing weight, being healthy and having the support of people in the same boat as you.

Yeppers theres only one reason for the dreadmill and thats 20deg. with snow on the ground. Heck its summer now so no Winning over being outside and running/walking those ugly hills.

I agree; running/jogging challenge would be nice.

However, the last one I was in, a year ago, the winner (wiener!) admitted he had done all of his miles on the dreadmill. This, of course, was a drop-kick in the gonads to all the real runners out on the roads and tracks. The poor dork, in spite of all the chats labeling him a cheater or just ignorant, never understood the great difference between synthetic running on the dreadmill, and true running on the roads and trails.

If we do a running/jogging challenge, my suggestion is to make the distinction between real and synthetic.

The above sermon was free......

I'd be interested in doing a running challenge. Maybe most miles (run and walk) in 3 months? A prize would be nice.

I would love to do a running challenge, too bad I can't even jog more than 30 seconds as I am now. Asthma + overweight + severely out of shape != running

Np, shoot we just need to come up with a new challenge that will push us on an on, I love competition with folks in the same boat as me, cause we can keep pushing ea. other in all the area's of our weight lose/life goals. I'll be thinking of some idea's over the next week an run them by you guys..
I started something friday night that I hope will help, I had only like 3 friends on my home page and decided to go thru an search for people that like to run, and people that do marathons or want to do a marathon some day and invited them as friends, I choose only people that had good sparkpeople activity and had sparkpoints to boot, I hope to come out of it with a few new friends that will push me toward my goals.

I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me! With his help I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, that while I run the race of life I run in such a way to win the Imperishable Prize.

232 weight. Man, we could battle it out. I doubt I will hold another challenge like this one since I didn't actually go out and buy the prize.

Dog i just found this group and this is right up my ally, I've been doing the (couch to a 5k running program) I started 2 months ago. I watch my nutritian religously, and now I'm up to jogging 12min. walking 1min. x3, and almost 2miles without stopping. I've been avg. 1.5 - 2lbs of weight lose/wk. I still want to post with you guys even If I can't go for the head phones..
Lets do something else like this for the next few months, Its a great motivation, just to have other men working together toward a common goal!

I think I screwed myself over. My first weigh in on spark people was 221. It should actually have been 224 like it was the next day. So I posted the 221 weight. Luckily I'm still in the running I think.

My SW: 224
My CW: 218

My overall goal is to lose 60 pounds. so 6 pounds doesn't seem like anything. a little frustrating.

223, now 221. If I can get into the gym for even 10 minutes of cardio, I usually end up working out for 10 to 20 more minutes.

First, the challenge. The challenge will have two categories: weight loss and progress.

The prize is a pair of Monster iSport Headphones.

Note: the headphones are worth $150. I won one of the 12 Days sweepstakes from Men's Health. Since I am not a runner and I have no need for such awesomeness, I decided to run this challenge. (http://www.menshealth.com/best-life/12-da
ys-sweepstakes, prize 6)

Disclaimer: I will be entering the challenge as well, weight loss category. I may adjust this contest as necessary.

This Challenge will run from January 12-April 12. The winner will be the one that have put in the most effort (most weight loss/ progress in least amount of time).
You must post status updates at LEAST once a month to track the total average.
