I've just started Couch to 5k, and just finished week 5. I love running, but know *nothing* about exercise and so I have some questions:
Really sorry for the somewhat ignorant nature of these questions, but whereas I can build a PC I have no idea how my own body works! Any help or guidance appreciated. I've tried Googling for these, but not turned up anythignhugely useful
1. Just stop, it's not a big deal, your run won't be less of run and you won't lose any benefit.
2. If you're running on unlit roads or streets, why not, for the sake of a couple of quid.
3. Do it and see how you feel, if you want to do it, and you can, that's a good sign that you're getting fitter.
I'll be in touch about a spot of ram for this PC.
Cheers, those were the answers I was hoping for!
[Off topic: Regarding RAM, I don't supply parts, but let me know what PC you have (operating system, motherboard if you know it, or just your make/model) I'll be able to advise you regarding how much you can install, what type, places to buy from etc. A few extra gig can really help]
No question is bad. unless questions are asked then how do we learn.
just one addition point. Listen to your mind, as this will tell you if your doing too much, then rest a little, I don't mean stop. But adjust what your doing till its at the stage to move onto the next stage of the couch to 5k. I was told its okay, to do one week again.
I think martial art training will be really good for you. It will help your core; balance; strength; flexibility and posture. It will also get you very fit.
I've just taken up hockey, I started in the summer on Sundays, so I went out for my long run then went and did an hrs plyometrics / fitness / hockey. I felt really good after the hockey, no stiffness in the legs whatsoever. Really helped the recovery from the long run.
The old ram chestnut! lol
Unless you have seriously small amounts of ram, like trying to run windows 7 on 1 Gb, or are still using DDR1, you'd be be better off upgrading your CPU for a faster PC. Having more ram is only usefull for memory hogging apps.
IPC and clock speed is where it's at.
