W5D3 done! Upper back pain

Recommended Posts

I found this forum after seeing W5D3 and wondering why it was such a huge jump only to go back down to intervals W6D1-2. I've been trusting the program so far but have never been able to run a mile in my life. I cannot believe I did W5D3! Weirdly, my legs stopped hurting a few minutes in, but toward the end my upper back in between my shoulder blades started to kill. I've heard this might be chest breathing, and also probably related to my previous back/shoulder injury.

It could definitely be breathing but also it could be because your body, especially your shoulders, will tense up quite a bit when running long distances. Sometimes your shoulders will rise up as your body fights for air. Next time try to relax em as much as you can. Hope this helps :)
