    Tendinitis & pinched nerve

    I have tendinitis in my shoulder and a pinched nerve in my elbow. I stopped running because of the throbbing pain, but I'm wondering when I should start running again. The pain is almost gone, it acts up when I over work my arm. Any thoughts?

    Sleep or run

    I went for the run, I decided that if I needed to stop in the middle I would. I didn't have to stop

    How should I push myself?

    I trained through the C25K just so I could actually run 5k. No I am training to run the 5k at a faster pace. I tried running faster when I first started training and injured my foot. Try increasing your speed every other day but be careful not to injure yourself.

    Sleep or run

    If you don't sleep very well the night before you run, is it better to sleep in and skip the run or suck it up and go for the run. I'm really tired but feel guilty for thinking of not running. Thanks!

    Fueling for morning runs

    I will eat a rice cake with some natural peanut butter or almond butter and half a glass of water.

    Question about foot/toe pain

    Is it nerves in the toe causing "pins and needles" pain or in the bridge of your toes or in the joint (knuckle?) part of your toe.

    Continuously run?

    I was running everyday and injured my foot. I was off for three moths waiting for it to heal. I now run every other day and pay closer attention to how my legs and feet feel during my runs. Good luck with the running!

    Best way to fail?

    Are you running at a fast pace? I found that I was struggling the first 3 weeks, but I slowed my pace down and it is much easier. Try slowing your pace down so your not forced to breathe as hard.

    Tips for getting up early and running?

    Start by waking up half an hour earlier and slowly increase how early you wake up. Make sure you're getting enough sleep to wake up earlier though. Your body will eventually get used to it.
  10. I finished W5D3 yesterday and I ran slowly but I didn't stop during the 20 minutes of running. I too am carrying a bunch of extra weight, so I understand how you feel. Find a good pace that keeps you challenged but won't cause injuries. It does get a bit easier each time and repeating something is totally fine as long as you're not letting it stop you from moving on to the next week. I will be repeating W5D3 because I want to see if I can improve my pace and run farther. Keep it up and it will start to get easier!

    Getting over my fears...

    I agree with torus_ot. I used to have the same problem, I was embarrassed how the excess weight jiggled every time I walked or ran on the treadmill and ashamed that I had let myself get to that point...until one day I realized that everyone has to start somewhere and who cares how I look. As long as you are making an effort to make yourself healthy and feel better about yourself that's all that matters! Try jogging on a trail that is popular with other runners so you're not alone, but have the shelter of trees to make you not so scared of running in public. That's how I started running in public and got over my fear. Keep us posted on how you do!
  12. When I run I find that my Achilles' tendon gets really tight in my right ankle. I stretch after the 5 minute warmup and find that I am having to after running each time. I bought new shoes which has helped a bit, but am still having it happen. Any ideas on how to stop it?

    I know once I lose some weight it will be much easier to run. I just need to get my head wrapped around clean eating. I may have to move.....I live above a Dairy Queen lol.
