Unless you have the genetic makeup of Wardian, which nobody does, don't overdue it with the running. I know its tempting, especially with competitive fires glowing. However, no need to run mega miles for 5 and 10K races. You can probably run 45 miles a week and do some other things and lose nothing. Take a few hrs a week to bike, use the eliptical, lift weights, do pilates, etc. Its especially key to work the core muscles. lower back and stomach.
