I started to run 2 miles a day for about a month 3 days a week and am now doing 3.5 miles 4 days a week in 30 minutes (not fast obviously, but I'm working on it). I used the gym at work 2-3 days a week (for minor stuff like bench (smith machine), dumbells) for a while and I outgrew it, but I did see improvement in definition and overall strength. I'm starting a 6-day a week routine today actually since I joined a real gym a few days ago.

I would list the "increases" I saw on weights, but using a Smith machine for bench for a month and a half, then going to free weights for bench and the like really skewed my 'strength'. Whatever, though, I'll report back my findings after I do this 6-day a week routine and see how it goes.
:slaps hand: Bad extol! No Smith machine!
