Welp, We're All Screwed

Basically, if we run more than 4hr/week at faster than 5mph (12min/mi), we're as bad off as couch potatoes.  Thank God they accounted for other confounding factors...  Rolling Eyes

I don't find it particularly surprising.  I've always thought that there is such a thing as 'too much' running (or exercise in general)... and that there is an amount that is 'most beneficial'.  Doesn't change what I do... I'm not running to live longer.  I'm running to live better.

I'll choose to look at it that I didn't even start running until I was over 50, so I've got a long way to go before I'll actually be in danger of overdoing it.

As a late entry to the world of running I think I'm also pretty safe. Very Happy Combine that with my 3 day a week schedule and my nearly slow enough pace and I'm golden. Running Running Running

I guess I am a couch potato, because I do not plan on slowing down for a long time.
