Running post Couch25K

Recommended Posts

I've had to scale back on running this week.

I read Galloway's book on running and I think I pushed myself too hard at the end of Couch25K. I completed C25K on Monday and I am very fatigued. I think the last 2-3 weeks I've been feeling down. Yesterday, I spent most of the day in bed and wasn't able to do much at all.

Following Galloway's advice I'm going to scale 30%. I went down to 3:1 run/walk intervals for 20 minutes today. Tonight, I went for a 1/2 hour walk.

Friday, I'm going to do the same thing.

Next week I'm going to do three 30 minute runs but with run/walk intervals.

I think I was on the path to getting hurt soon if my body hadn't shut down on me.

I loved saying I could run for so and so minutes without walking but at what cost? Given my history of asthma and 42 yrs. of inactivity I think the end of C25K was a bit much for me.

I love running and I'd like to do it for a lifetime.
