  • Running in the Mesa Academy

    I got my final offer from Mesa yesterday. I start January 12th. Can someone who has been through or knows give me an idea of how much running there is. Like what do you start at on the first week and progress up too. The med doctor told me to be running 6 miles 3 times a week and be ready for a 9 mile run about 3 months in....

    Thanks,
    Tom

      I'd say that 6 miles 3x weekly sounds good.

      It's not any single run that you gotta fear. It's the accumulating nagging injuries that can bugger you. I know of a couple guys, myself included, that started the academy in pain from pushing too hard the couple weeks before it started.

      BE SURE:

      You have real good running shoes. No Walmart or Target treads. Don't just go to Foot Locker and buy the "cool" Nike Shox... Go to a bonafide running shop, get fitted, have your stride analyzed, and they will find you the ideal shoe. It'll be expensive.

      You are taking vitamins, multi-vitamins, glucosamine, etc.

      You are eating well. I made sure to eat my fruits and veggies in the academy. If I didn't get my veggies, I made sure I packed a V8 juice.

      You are sleeping enough.

      You are careful with yourself. Don't play in traffic or nothin...
