NHS Running

Post by falkor » Sat Jan 25, 2020 6:31 pm

do you go running? I finally found a proper plan from the NHS and am now following it, I was trying to go running by just going to the local park and doing a few laps of running, of course my lower legs turned to stone and I was doing it wrong as I hadnt found the NHS "week by week" guide which is brilliant. :tr:
I have now been out 5 times in 5 days going on the NHS guidelines which are far better than what I was doing before .
there are so many things that are vying for our time, work , you need to go to do your job, then you get home and have domestic responsibilities so can you fit in running as well? should you fit in running as well? well you dont need much to do it, a pair of trainers and some light clothing and to begin with half an hour a day
here is the NHS plan anybody else beginning on running? :slsm:
