I’m a 52 years old aging athlete and have never picked up running. I had a new friend ask me recently, “Do you run?” and my answer was “Only when something is chasing me”, which is only partially true because I do chase that fuzzy ball around the tennis court on a pretty regular basis.
Unfortunately I think I may have over did it and either stained a muscle in my forearm or have tendonitis, either way most of things I love to do are off limits indefinitely. I need to be active, I’m in a much better place emotionally when I can do something athletic; however I’m limited right now so I picked up running. I have no intention of running a 5K, but by the time I get to the end of this program I may feel different. In the meantime I will be absorbing as much as I can about technique and breathing....you name it. I have a ton to learn and time to do it so I hope you all can help.
