Only between Friday-Monday
Hopefully this is my first post of many! I'm currently 25 years old and working pretty heavily tuesday-thursday and as such have no time to run (though I do play 5 a-side football on a thursday), and as such it only leaves me friday-monday that I'm able to get outside for a run.
I'm still very much a beginner and so was wondering if anyone else has similar schedules and still found it beneficial to run consecutively over 4 days? I was planning to start with something like this:
Friday: 3 mile
Last weekend I did do 8 miles (after a few months of on/off running) and felt okay, but that did leave me too achey to run again on Sunday/Monday, though to be honest, I didn't really do any warm ups or stretches. Thanks for your time!
Well, basically just want to get some fitness back with an aim to doing a half marathon and possibly a full one, though obviously that's a long way in the distance. I've been doing it for the last few months on and off with it not going too badly, though admittedly that has been smaller distances. Fridays run is usually dependent on how intensive football was the night before.
But if you're running alone, don't do the chat or people will think you're in care in the community
Cool, that sounds a good plan cougie! I've never really understood that though, why is it encouraged to be at a talkable pace? is it to ensure you don't overdo it?
Haha the way I run sometimes Peter, people could very well think that anyway!
That sounds a good plan cougie, thanks for all your help! Did 3 miles earlier with stretches before + some nuts and an energy drink after and feeling much better than I have done previously.
