    Welcome to running mailman.

    If you've been doing weights for a while you'll be putting a lot of strain on your leg joints each time you land, regardless of form. I read somewhere that you basically multiply your bodyweight by 3 and that's how much pressure is placed on each leg every stride, so you can see how injuries happen.

    The above advice is good. Go to a reputable running store and have them select a good shoe for you. Don't buy online or get a friends recommendation - getting the correct shoe is the most important thing you can do. A knowledgeable sales person will match the shoe to your stride pattern and make sure it fits correctly.

    Run on grass if you can find it, but it's not always an option. building up your mileage is also good advice.

    Make sure if this is your first time running distance in a while you're taking a decent break to start. When I first started doing competition running I had to do 2 weeks of just slow-pace distance jogs, then a week of no activity, and coach said it's to prevent stress injurys.

    If you don't mind me asking, what are the time limits on your stats in the sig?
    2 min for each except the run?
    How much do you weigh?

    2 minutes for push-ups and sit-ups, and I'm 6'2" and weighed 175 last time I took the PT test. Now I'm 181, I started lifting more.
