Would it be bad to go running twice in one day? 30 min inthe morning and then 30 min in the evening?

Hi guys, I`m a newbie on the HCRV lifestyle... and loving it :D Today I started jogging and was wondering if anyone could give me any advice on how often/ how long I should jog for to build up my stamina? Any comment would be much appreciated, thanks :)

I've started the running now I would also like to add some body weight exercises like push ups, crunches and etc. Should I do them on the says I don't run or do them prior or post run. My son said he thought to do them on the no run day but I said that you don't get your recovery day. Can anyone shed some light on this. Thanks!!!

Ran my first half marathon today in Pittsburgh. 1:59.48 was my time.  My goal was to beat the 2 hour mark and i did it by 12 seconds!  Only Oranges and bananas during the race and 2 Dates and small bits of celery.  Plus plenty of water.  No gels, Gatorade, caffeine, bars, or powders.  Just straight fruit and water!

The advantage off a camelbak is you can drink while running, there are also packs where you can adjust the bottles on the front, but as i was saying, just check out the different models and aply them to what ya wanna do. Some extra room for a rain jacket, pants and shirt always comes in handy, esspecially in wintertime. Good luck.

Thanks James!

if your out for longer than 60/90 minutes then you should idearly be looking to take in some fluids. double that time and you should be taking in cals. i personally don't like blader systems so i have my water in bottles, (camelback). ive got a hydration belt with room for two, you can also get them with room for one! at the front of the belt their is also room for food. you can get bladers that you carry around your waist as well if youd rather that to bottle/s  and/or  a backpack

Thanks miles! Bouncing is one of the things I was concerned about. It was just that when I run my throat gets dry. I started taking a bottle with some water just to keep wetting my throat. Hence I thought i would start training with the a waist pack. I also considered a camel back because of the bouncing with the waist pack but heard that the camel back retains too much heat. Thanks again!

camel back is mainly for water/fluids.I think some models have also some extra room but mainly is just for the fluids. If youre going further than buy a waist pack, you can put in  a camel bak- food and extra clothes and some other items. Personally i would use it only if i run longer then 3 hours, why use the thing if you dont need it? I would recommend (depends on your goals) t o buy a waist pack with enuff room so you can use that if you need it. There are special brands with very good models. One thing you dont want is that is bounces, i think mine is like 12 liters and its enuff fur all the runs.
