So my nephews are doing a 10k run in the fall and asked me to do it with them. I used to run half marathons in my younger days but haven't ran in over 10 years. Tennis knees have finally caught up to me. Plus, as a stocky guy, running has never been easy for me.
However, today will mark the first day where I will begin my training to run the 10k. It is back to basics and the 3:1 ratio for me. At least for the first week. Then bit by bit I will increase the run ratio until there is little to no recovery. A bit nervous about all this. Not sure how the body will hold up considering I am barely healed from my back and hernia injuries. There is always something so I can't let that stop me.
Anyone have tips/tricks?
