That Guy, or That Girl at the gym
>move to a new city
>join their crossfit gym
>first session we are doing shoulder presses
>female who has been doing crossfit for like 5 minutes keeps criticizing my technique
>goes on and on about how I shouldn't be adding weight because my technique is so bad
>ignore her and add more weight per the workout
>box owner finally tells her that she is wrong, and to shut up and lift
>she goes into pouty girl mode
>starts dropping her bar from overhead to the floor with the flimsy 10 pound rubber plates on it
>owner tells her not to do that because she'll break the goddamn plates

I need some running advice. I enlisted into the Air National Guard and have until November to prepare (please try to refrain from any bashing on the military).
I have been preparing on a treadmill since I do not own a mp3 player for music. On the treadmill, I have been running at the speed of 4.5 (I think mph?). My goal though is to run 1.5 miles in 15 minutes or less. I am not in the best shape and can upload pics if you want, but I have been following the chart that I posted. I started at week 1 and am now on week 7. I can run up to 25 minutes without any pause.
So my question is, if I wanted to increase my speed, how far back should I go on it? It sounds like a pretty big speed bump though. Today, I tried to run at the 6.0 speed, and could only last 9 minutes before I was too tired to move on.
Thanks for any advice guys, you have helped me lose over 20 pounds so far!
