Saying Hi- Pole dancer and Runner

Hi Everyone!
I just wanted to connect with some more people who are into the fitness stuff I pole dance (and have done for some 6 years, but have never really pushed myself till now!) and run, which I started last year.
I'm working on running a consistent 3k (I dropped off during the winter break of school, and destroyed my run time!), and by the end of the year I'd like to be working on 10k. I have a lot of hills in my area, so things get somewhat more challenging! I would also love to have less-painful runs... but... I guess I kind of just have to deal with it for now.
Pole dancing, I'm still pretty beginner, but I work on it 3-5 times a week. Lots of strength training, and lots of work on basic things like climbing and spins for now. Once upon a time I'd gotten my basic invert... but that's gone away now! I'll get it back!
I've also been thinking about taking up hooping again, and I sometimes do staff spinning... I'm pretty bad at both, though!
What's everyone else working on? Any polers out there? Advice for running?
hey there and welcome! i'm a runner too, but it's been pretty infrequent lately, unfortunately. i took up running about 10 years ago, and i've had times where i have gotten busy and had to let it go for awhile and re-start. my best advice would be to take your time, work on getting a good mileage base, but build slowly at first to avoid injury. i normally will have two days a week for easy runs, one day for speedwork, and one day for a long run, and that has at least worked for me in the past.

other than that, i'm into rock climbing. i started a few years ago and fell in love with it! it can be hard to make enough time for it because of school, but we have a climbing gym on campus so that helps make it easier to stay in shape.
