About me: 20 Y/O, Average height, slim
I haven't been happy with my level of fitness for a while, so I decided to start running last month. I went to a cycle track which is near to my home, switched on my Ipod and started running. It felt great...for a while, and then I 'had to' stop and start walking, because I felt exahausted after about 1km. I walked the the rest of the distance I had planned and back despite feeling like I was going to throw up. I went back out the next day and ran just under 4km. The run back was very hard, but I was pleased to push through.
So, I've been doing pretty much the same run every day I can, sometimes twice a day. I haven't been able to run on the track the past few days, because of ice everywhere. Tonight, however, the ice had seemed to have to cleared up, but I was dissapointed to find that the track was still covered in ice. I decided to go on a road run instead, though. I ran 11.3km in an hour and 6 minutes, which was surprising.
Anyway, I really enjoy training, but I've been wondering if running every day, or at least 6 days per week, is a bad thing? The thing is, I do a tough full body circuit 3-4 times a week, and a some fairly light core training every other day, and I've been wondering if it will catch up on me?
