I posted yesterday in the introductions forum. I'm back after 2 years and and a 25 pound weight gain in the interim. I started running a week ago. I started with one lap around my small block. It's 360 meters. I did it again the next day. and twice the day after. Yesterday and the day before I did three laps. Today I did 4. My thighs hurt now. The front and the backs of my legs, not used to moving so much weight so far so fast, are tired and aching now. My first day or two, I was huffing and puffing so hard my chest hurt well after my run. A week later, I'm already feeling the difference. Instead of being sore from being winded, my legs are sore instead. Four laps is 1.44 km. I'm hoping that by the middle of May, I will be able to do a 5 km run.
I was thinking of doing a 29 km in 29 days challenge for myself for this month, but being only the second day and I already did a longer run, I'm wondering if its too modest of a goal.
