New to RunnersWorld and kind of beginner runner, started jogging/running in March, but I have a challenge in front of me of the Scotland Coast to Coast in September this year.
My current training schedule is as follows:
Mon - gym (treadmill, x-trainer, step machine, swimming)
Tue - running on road
Wed - running at work on lunch hour & gym (same as above)
Thu - rest
Fri - cycling on road
Sat - golf & light gym session
Sun - rest
My primary goal at the moment is weight loss (i'm 6ft 2 & currently 119kg) whilst also getting as much running in as possible, the Coast to Coast has a 24km run/trail run on day 2 so I have about 4-5 months to build my distances up. I havent quite managed 5km yet as with the extra weight I'm carrying its proving harder than I thought, but I know what lies ahead!!
Had a training session with my boss yeaterday and attempted interval training (running 1 min then jogging 2 mins) yesterday and my achilles are not great this morning but I feel I may be partly to blame as I never stretch before or after training.
So, does anyone have any tips on stretching and training overall or as a fat lad have I bitten off more than I can chew? haha
