Excerpt: Im 23, 6ft 195 pounds, definition of ectomorph and because of that I have not done any legitimate cardio in the last 4 years to try to make strength and weight gains.

    New to Cardio

    Im 23, 6ft 195 pounds, definition of ectomorph and because of that I have not done any legitimate cardio in the last 4 years to try to make strength and weight gains. I have made significant size and strength gains since I joined this site in 2007, but the time has come where I need to begin some cardio. I have been running for about a month now, 1 or 2 mile cool downs after my lift, sometimes 3 miles. I am wondering how out of cardio shape I am considering my size, and time away from any cardio workouts. My one mile time is currently around 7:40, and my two mile time is around 17:00. Keep in mind I just started running 4 weeks ago but if anyone could let me know how far behind I am, or where I should be please let me know!

    Re: New to Cardio

    As far as society in general goes, you are way ahead of most people. Do you have any specific goals in mind, like a race, marathon, etc. or are you just running to run? If you are only running to incorporate cardio into you workouts then keep doing what feels good for you. Keep it simple and have fun. No need to over complicate things if they don't have to be.
