Check out this link:

It's a couch to 5k running routine, I did it about 8 weeks ago and it goes at a good slow pace. I think I started at week 3 cause I was already a little active.

I don't run more than 3.3 miles now, but it's a lot easier than when I started. And running at sea level is VERY easy for me now.

I'm not a doctor, but it worked for me.

thanks 4 reading

Ya, the weight can cause problems in the legs but I've ran a 12.10 1.5 mile at 263 lbs in the police academy last Oct. , but that was on grass. Uneven grass at that. My ankles are shot from 14 yrs. of football, so grass has it's pros and cons. The treadmill is the safest but I like to be outside. I ride alot MT bike but I feel the run does more and is better for job training since our Chief deep sixed the bike patrol.

Some years back I was training for my first marathon (The Disney!) when I hurt my knee. It was kinda weird cause it only hurt while I was running and didn't happen till after I got around the 12 mile point.

Come to find out I did all the wrong things. Wrong shoes, bad surface, poor warmup, and stretching. Lucky for me I worked with a good P.T. who was also certified to train.

Most I'm gonna do now is 10k which is the Xfit wod today. ichhh.

I didn't realize how important good shoes were either. I just bought some running shoes and got shin splints. I went to a good running store and got fitted and no more shin splints.

Started leg assist Pull-ups which added some time to the workout. Could feel the pull up in my muscles more.
L1D2 4.32

Looking forward to L2 next month. Still not finding the time to run on off days.

Run after the workout, even if for just 15 minutes. I prefer that so that my 'off days' (4x's a week) are less stressful and I concentrate on dinner or relaxation or personal stuff.

thanks, I will try it!

Needed to rest the knee, but started Level 2 tonight! Sorry for not posting for awhile.

Got 27 rounds on L2D1and thinking of doing all three workouts in a row then rest for a day.

Need to add ab work somehow...
I can feel my back tighten during the day, could be the long hours in the car?

Any one working and working out with an overnight job?

What works with diet? When do U workout? How is your sleep? and when and how do U sleep?

Looking for help?
