There seems to suddenly be a lot more running in this week..
any ideas??? <img title="" src="http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/forum/smilies/confused_smiley.gif" alt="" /> Please help.
im struggling to get even to week two on this plan. I can run up to 20k on an eliptical machine but on a treadmill or in the outdoors i cant get past a few hundred metres due to my asthma, it becomes unbearably painful to breathe and i start to get dizzy, but this doesnt happen as badly on the eliptical machine. any idea why?
Also i started running last week and ran 5 days in a row, pushed myself to my absolute limit and on my rest day iv been having stabbing pains in my chest an random spots behind all my ribs and my ribs at the bottom on the sides and in the centre are very saw and a little swollen they hurt to be touched and when i breathe .... are these things normal or cause for concern?
Also when i tried to run on pavement rather than grass i got pains in my toe joints, ankles, knees and hips with each stride as my foot hit the pavement .... is this normal? will it improve? is there anything i can do to prevent it?
FYI just incase it is relevant, at the moment i am doing a dynamic stretching routine before my runs that i found on this site and after i do static stretches i remember from school and dance class ....
I would really appreciate your help as running is the only excercise that really feels like a release for me and the only thing that has given me any real weight loss results other than dancing (which i refuse to because i have no body confidence and dont want to be seen in public dancing) so i dont want to have to give it up. im 162cm and 64 kg so im not overweight enough for it to cause issues like these as far as i know.
Just wanted to say thanks a lot for this schedule. It has helped me to be able to run 5k without having to stop for rest.
Just to note I did not completely follow the schedule. I started at week 3 and smeared week 4 and 5 out over 3-4 weeks. I liked the 5/8 min intervals. After that I skipped week 6 and did week 7 for only 1 run. Then I could do the full 30 minutes continuously. It was not an easy 6-7 weeks but totally worth the effort!
Good work Bart!
I'm not sure anyone has ever followed one of those training programmes religiously anyway. Illness, holiday and real life often overtake us - and perhaps sometimes we feel we need to repeat a week or even skip one.
Everyone is different and develops at their own pace.
Hi all. I've just returned to running after a five year absence. Work has been manic but so has my weight gain!
I started this at week four but repeated week five as I couldn't fit then three runs in. Week 6 was hard at first and my legs were aching when I did my first run of week 7 today.
I've always trusted these schedules and they've got me through 4 10k, 3 half marathons and 2 marathons.
I can't believe how my fitness has plummeted after just 5 years.
I'm starting to feel like a runner again. Thank you RW
