No breaks means I am constantly sore/stiff from running. 2.5 miles, 2 miles, and a run of 1.5 miles at 12:30 pace walking to 2.25 miles total for the day. Really just trying to get 2 miles per day one way or another. There is no wrong way that I see to do this. It is better running most of the way and walking if I have to. One day I’ll be able to run 5 miles, but not today. I was wondering if I should take a day off, but a lot of runners that I speak with say that you don’t need a break unless you do something crazy. Like if you have a race, you should take it easy the next day. So I just run every day I feel like I can. It is always the worst part for like the first 5 minutes or so. After that, I just run until I can’t breathe and then take a break. Ha ha. Take that couch!
5 days in a row
About the Author: RunningAnyway
I have gone up and down in weight over my life. I ran cross-country in high school, but that was 25 years ago. I was up to 245lbs at 5'6" tall, not good. I have tried all different styles of eating, from vegan to low-carb. After really seeing how out of shape I was, I decided to get in shape. A year later, I have been running at least 3 days a week and am getting ready for my first marathon. As a fat runner, I'm not fast, I'm not going to win, but I will finish.
