Hi, a little info 1st, i got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes last year, so i walked from 249lbs / 113kg down to 196lbs / 88.9kg, now my diabetes is managable only taking 1 pill 500 mg metformin now. Started transition to jogging almost 3 months ago. Every other day, taking it easy at 1st. you know like doing .3 miles 3 min break, then .8 miles break, wogging if you would call it that. Now im doing nonstop jogging. B4 today my best was 2 miles / 3.22km without stopping in a little under 22 mins. My heart and lungs are are adapted pretty well as of now and my muscles burn but never sore the next day or anything. Just 45 mins ago i jogged 2.5 miles nonstop in 28 mins. In the last coupe weeks ive been having very slight pain in left hip and knee after going for about 15 mins, nothing bad but the tendon / joints are sore for the next day a little and im fine, but it happens all over again when i go for my next jog. I'm 35, 192 lbs / 87.1kg and only 5'8 / 172.5cm so im well overweight, Is pushing it to 2.5 miles / 4km in 28 mins for my weight and height pushing my body too far? I'm sure most people that do that are prolly 20 lbs / 9kg lighter than me, can you give me some insight please i don't want to get hurt, would appreciate your advice on this, and like i said never jogged in my life until under 3 months ago to keep that in mind. thanks
