Tried for the big 3.0, but not happening. 2.6 and the gas ran out. It happens to all of us. You don’t quite have the umph to get to the goal you set for yourself. I had to take a few days off running because the ibuprofen was not working anymore. It seems like the more I run, the more I hurt. I know my gait is off, hips are terrible along the outside. I’ve been looking into it and I’m thinking it might be IT band syndrome. Mostly, my fat ass can’t move that fast and be balanced by the muscles I have. I’m going to start doing some side leg lifts to build up those muscles. A few days off will get rid of the pain and not be long enough to destroy the base that I have built up so far.
Nope, not today
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.
