At the encouragement of a member here I've decided to go ahead and start a training log. I hope I'm doing this right. If not, let me know. I suppose I'll aim to report about once a week.
Okay, so I started running Tuesday, Feb. 6. For now, it's a 2 mile loop. I ran-walked, I guesstimate 35-65, 50-50. Had some soreness, mostly in the quads, the first 2 or 3 days, Wed., Thurs., Fri. But that's pretty much gone now. At the advice of a few runners here, I'm only stretching post-run, 4 stretches. I'm skipping the neck part of that program, because I tend to stretch that part spontaneously throughout the day.
Today, Sunday, I think my run-walk ratio went up noticeably, but of course, no exact measurements, and I think there was a bit more spring to my stride. Of course, having done this before, I expected this.
My run schedule will be 4 days a week, Mon., Wed., Fri. & Sun, resting on Tues, Thurs. & Sat. We'll see how that goes.
I guess I should get a stop watch to gauge my improvement.
My goal is to get in decent shape and maybe do a few fun runs.
