Hi there I'm wondering if there is anyone that can help or if there is anyone is a similar situation to myself. I started jogging 4 months ago at 290lbs 5'11 just 12:00 minute miles as long as I could and building from there really. This has helped me, along with a revamped diet, get down to 240lbs currently. My main concern is that people keep telling me I am too heavy to put the miles in, I'm up to 16.5 weekly increasing by 0.5 miles a week and my weekly running plan looks like this Monday - treadmill 2% inc minimum 6 mile - 65 minute - 11 minute miles Tuesday Rest Wednesday - road 3 mile - 27 minute - 9 minute miles 15 x 50m sprints Thursday - treadmill 3 mile - 30 minute - 10 minute miles on various incline settings throughout Friday Rest Saturday 3 mile - speed work 6mph 60 sec 7.5mph 60 sec Sunday Timed 1.5 mile - currently 12:45 minutes I'm very happy running I enjoy it and it stops my training becoming stale, but I do worry about my joints progressing past my current level as 240lbs is a lot to be running with. I own a good pair of NB 1080v4 which I find very comfortable and I do not suffer from any shin or knee pain... Yet. Just wondering what everyone's opinion is, appreciate any feedback. I'm still losing around 2lbs a week and my goal weight is 185lbs, I would like to run my 1.5 Mile in 9 minutes within 12 months which is my ultimate training goal at the moment.
