How many miles did you run today? - Page 706

post #10576 of 12858
Having run under 20 miles in the past 10 years, I attempted to train for a Marathon last year. Pushed too hard too quickly resulting in 6 months of knee issues. Attempting to ease back in. Going to post here for motivation. Please yell at me if I run too much.

10/25 - 3 miles
10/27 - 3.75 miles

I would look for some sort of "Couch to 5K" program to get you back into running.  Those usually incorporate walking and running over a period of time to get your body used to the pounding.  Then you can look for bigger goals.

 

The only reason I mention this is you running background (or lack there of) means you need to start slowly.  Good luck!

5 easy miles this morning. I like that I'm getting back to the point where I can consider 5 miles an easy run.

6.3 miles this morning - Still a bit tight from the marathon but it felt good to get back out there.

6.2 mile trail run tonite. In Milwaukee and got out on a portion of the Ice Age Trail.
Congrats MP on the MCM and getting back out. Make sure you give yourself some easy slow runs to recover.
Welcome Revis.

Got out this morning for maybe 1.5 miles and my knee felt fine.  Lots of stretching and ice have helped and I am keeping the mileage low to see how it does.  Plus I don't want to be 4 miles from my house on an achy knee and have to walk the whole way.

I should have mentioned i'm not a couch potato. I get a ton of exercise through sports, i just have not gone on many distance runs.
Do you still think something like this couch to 5k would apply?

Well those plans are to get people from no activity to running a 5K so you could probably just look up a basic 5K plan then.  Just listen to your body and stop if some pain develops when running even if in the middle of a shorter run.  As many of us will note, running injuries will come even when it is nothing out of the ordinary about our training.

Yup, thanks. I tend to find running downhill to cause discomfort so I'm trying to find more level routes this time around. Goal is 2-3 runs a week - 3 milers or so. I think i'm going to keep my runs under 7-8 miles in the long term.
