Contrary to popular belief, humans didn't not run down game. We are for the most part ambush predators often wounding the prey and pushing it till
it dropped. Our pace pursuing game wasn't more than 6-7 mph tops with 3-4mph being the usual pace.. After you caught up with the wounded prey, you
didn't want to be tired or winded because you wanted to finish the kill quickly with minimal risk to yourself or your fellow hunters. Running cross
country is also extremely dangerous! Break a leg or ankle and you're pretty much toast in the hunter-gatherer days which are long since over.
With the advent of weapons like the atl-atl,sling and the self bow, humans could kill or wound prey at quite a distance. Ancient hunting people
tamed the wolf into the dog and since about 40,000 BC, the dogs have been running down game for us. I've done some primitive bowhunting of both
deer and wild boar and have never run after game that didn't die immediately. I carefully tracked it down and finished it if it wasn't dead
Walking is man's natural gait. It's twice as efficient as running, calorie wise. Even fairly obese folks can travel 25-30 miles a day cross-country
if they pace themselves properly. Do that for several weeks and they won't be nearly as obese.
Surviving is about expending the least amount of energy for the most amount of work i.e. food which is why humans started farming. Much more
reliable then hunter gathering. Even most Plains Indians practiced the planting of corn and other crops when they stopped to camp for summer or
As far as running from the NWO storm troopers is look how well the best equipped and trained military force in the world is doing in Iraq and
Afghanistan. If the Iraqi, people really want the US troops dead, they would be. The whole idea that you can subdue the 303 million folks in the
US who own more than 270 million civilian firearms with a few Blackwater types is utterly ridiculous. Did I mention that there are nearly 1.6
million now pissed off Iraq/Afghan war veterans who've left the military since the start of action in '01. Think they wouldn't know how to take
out the few Blackwater types stupid enough to try to seize guns? The oath is to the Constitution first against all enemies foreign or domestic.
There nothing wrong with getting in better shape though. It helps get the heart rate down when squeezing the trigger on the Blackwater goons.
