I am new to running/jogging. I have lost 38.8 lbs. since 2/20/13, I have made a lifestyle change by eating "clean" and exercising.
Tonight was my 3rd run, and I ran 1 mile. I am trying to ease into it.
Last week I ran a bit further, 1.65 miles.
My first run was also only 1 mile, but I know I have to go slow...I know it's unrealistic to get out and run 3 miles in a week when I am just starting.
So, one of my sily questions is this:
I am only 5 ft. tall, so when I run with my daughter, or my BF, they have to stop or run in place to wait for me.
Is it okay for me to run at a slower pace? I can't run too fast, my legs are short! LOL
Should I run every other day?
How many days should I run?
I am hoping to do a 5K in October with some friends.
Is it okay for me NOT to eat after I run?
I run at night, when it just starts to get dark and cool off, so I don't want to eat late and undo the good I am doing by running, you know?
Okay, well thanks in advance for any answers you can give me.
