Hi - been lurking for a while but thought I would put a paw in the air and ask for your thoughts...I started running just over a month ago at the rather geriatric age of 44. On my very first day I managed about 3 minutes before collapsing in a jibbering heap - then discovered the walk/run thing. This week I'm on R7W2 x3 (four times a week), which covers about 2 miles, I think...still struggling with OS maps and a bit of string. At the moment I'm finding that on the third 7 minute run I'm going much faster than on the first two...I don't plan it this way, but my legs just seem to say 'Let's go!!', even though my calves still feel fairly lead-like on the first 14 mins. Is this wise?? Is this normal?? Any thoughts welcome...and thanks for all the inspiration so far.
