just started week 1

just completed the first day of this app, read about it on forums and thought I'd give it a try. First day wasn't too bad, my legs aren't the slightest bit tired but my breathing was pretty laboured, putting that down to driving most places for the past 8 years...but recently have a damaged lung and have been advised to try running to increase capacity again..so wether I'll be running 10k in how ever many weeks or not I'm looking forward to finding out!

Congratulations on beginning the program!  There have lots of great articles posted regarding breathing advice when running that you should definitely check out.  I'm no stranger to labored breathing as a former smoker but with concentration and learning to breathe from my belly and not my chest I've noticed a BIG difference and I'm sure that this will help you out too!  Happy Running :)

Thanks :) absolutely dying to get out and run it again today. I know well the body needs time to repair but I just can't wait until Wednesday to get back out there, and with no tiredness in my legs and an abundance of energy since yesterday I think I'll give it a try.

Thanks for the heads up on the breathing threads, I'll have a quick peek. How far are you into the program? :)

CHey Nev glad you got started. Injuries happen quick if we over do it. Last year I developed heal spurs am I was not feeling any pain then one day they instant pain and it took several months to heal. Just try to let your body heal even if not in pain. Good running :-)

Hi Nev, I just posted in your other topic.    i love doing this form of breathing technique, it might help increase capacity.  I actually do this 2 times a day, If I remember.  Breathe deep, through your diaphragm, hold, hold, let out.  Fill your lungs to capacity.    Here is something I have been doing off and on for years.  At first you might feel a little dizzy, but it gets better..   I love Oxycise...  Happy Running!

I've just finished day 2 myself, glad to have someone at my point!.

 

Well,from what I've read on forums and such could be shin splints? (Could) I'm no expert, but is certainly in the right part of the leg. Could be from a number of things. Uneven running surfaces? The way you are landing on your feet, you want to be landing midfoot, and not on the balls of your feet. Urm some also have mentioned streching before and after running helps it..that's all I know off the top of my head. I'm sure others will have some advice for you.

Hope it's nothing too long term though! :)

I've just ran w1d3 today(3rd day in a row) so I think I'll rest tomorrow and run d3 again Friday just because of the improvement I've noticed in 3 days, my speed has increased a touch and my breathing has come on in leaps and bounds!

Just can't get enough of it! Bring on Friday!!

At 15 years old and 5'11," my weight maxed at 210 pounds. Now, however, with a good diet, I've gotten down to 178. I have just finished my first day and am, hopefully, on my way to gaining that cardio that I've always dreamt of. Best wishes, everyone!

Just finished week 1 but doing it again because my shins hurt so my speed is poor. I have great shoes, not doing hills and stretch so I don't get it.

Just did Completed Day one of week one. Haven't done much in the way of exercise since stopping martial arts 2 years ago. Need to desperately get back in shape and have always wanted to run a 5k. Can't wait to see where this journey takes me.
