Hey Gordz, I jut did your 'ideal weight' I reckon its actually 83.16kg. (hope i haven't werided you out) I found that at 194cm you are 42cm over 1.52. I divided 42cm by 2.5cm to get 16.8. I then times 16.8 by 2.25kg and got 37.8. I then added this to 45.36 and volia 83.16kg.
It probably gets abit out of wack the taller you get too. for example the bones in your legs that would be in the first 1.52cm of your height but because your taller they would probally weigh more to be stronger to support the extra height so the 45.36 kgs might be too light a weight to start of at. That is of course if i can explain the werid wanderings of my brain.

I think (if I've done the maths right- total possibility I haven't!) my ideal running weight is 59.76 kilos. Which made me feel pretty good because I'd set a goal for 60kgs and means that I had a pretty good idea of a healthy and 'fit' weight for me. It's also good because it's 5 kilos more than my competitive swimming weight which was SO difficult to maintain and was one of the big reasons for me quitting the sport when I was 17!!!! Okay....but back to positivity, thanks for including that formula runner and well done on the 25mins of running!!! It's great when you have good, feel-good days like that- are you getting the runners high yet?

Weigh in day yesterday didn't go so well, up to 65.8kgs. Dunno it dosn't really worry me that much, mainly coz i'm begining to run better. Oh well see how we go next week.
As for the runners high, I don't think i've had it yet. At the end of a run though i always feel really good doing my streches!
Catch you soon.

Apparently mine is just over 45.36kg. I didn't even think that was within my BMI. I really don't think I'll ever be that weight.

I'm assuming you mean metres? I'm 1.53m Also today I was thinking of getting into running. I need new shoes though. My runners pinch. What would you suggest for me to start running?

I figured maybe something that is good for my bad style of runni8ng/walking. Fitted. Maybe like Athlete's foot says they do.

Amethyst, if you have a bad style of running it might be best to go to a sports podiatrist first. They'll analyse your run and foot-fall and recommend what sort of running shoes to go for. There are a few running shoe shops that will do this, Active Feet in Prahran (Melbourne) has some podiatrists on staff. Cool Running Australia has a forum where you'll find recommendations on how, and where, to get best running shoes (link).

My favourite shoe right now is the 'Rocket' by Earth Shoes. It's a bit weird compared to most running shoes because the heel is lower than the rest of the foot, but it's magnificent for my plantar fasciitis because it has great midsole cushioning.

I calculated my ideal running weight and it would be 57 kilos. It's scary that they recommend you don't run until you're within 3 kilos of that weight. 60kg is less than my goal weight! And as Court pointed out, it's a Catch-22. Running is a great way to lose weight, but you need to lose the weight before you can run! I had the same dilemma with my plantar fasciitis. It's a foot problem caused in part by being overweight. The best treatment is to lose weight. But if you have PF you are supposed to stay off your feet as much as possible which makes it difficult!

I've realised why I think I run badly. My shoes get destroyed quickly and in ways that apparently surprise people.
