IF you have the time, walking can be every bit as effective, like mentioned above. 500 calories is 500 calories, whether you walked or ran. Now, does walking get you the same residual results of building lean muscle and extending that calorie burn, I can't say.

As is recently evident, walking could be MORE beneficial in the long run, if you avoid injury and stay on track more consistently.

Dang, I'm not sure I DRIVE 70 miles a week

This is true (as far as I know) for walking vs. running. The other thing on walking is that if you do it at a big incline (7%+), it can have similar effects as running on the muscles, but with less impact.

Ran 5 miles yesterday. Anyone else tight as all hell their first mile? I swear the hardest part of my run is that first mile, after I get through that then I am good to go. Only stopped at 5 miles because I got a little bored on the threadmill. Was at 8mph for majority of the run, finished at 9mph and some change.

Starting is usually the hardest part, so I don't think it's all that uncommon to feel that way. I can usually get muscularly loose with a good pre run warmup, but it does take time for the cardio and respiratory systems to open for anyone I'd imagine.

Agree with both comments - the first mile is the most difficult. Not only the motivation to actually get out there and get going, but also to have the muscles/body "wake up" and be ready.

I use a combo of stretching and active stretching to get loose prior to the run. More if I know I am going to try and run quickly (as opposed to a slow, just get miles in run).

I am a fat, old, non-aerobic, nearly disabled by PF fuk. 5K took me 40 minutes last night. AMAZING in a negative way what happens after just over 2 weeks of no running of any kind. Soccer was cancelled due to rain and then COVID. Time I spent on vacation there were no running opportunities that I took advantage of. Just can't see running in Vegas. Then last week, coming back from vacation to a changed world, I just didn't make time until last night.

THIS close to hanging up both running shoes and cleats.

Donít get discouraged man, time and speed is all relevant. Itís the sense of accomplishment and how well you feel when you run plus the countless health benefits. Just run to enjoy it and clear your mind. I feel you sometimes but in a different way from little injuries off and on and throwing off my training. Running 70 miles a week is already tough and beats me down when I canít run. I really was hoping to get under 1:15 half marathon this year and have been training like crazy only to see all the races are cancelled now.

Can't say I have had PF, so I don't know the pain you are feeling with that. Sounds awful. That said, good for you for keeping going.

I, too, am finding recovery takes a bit longer than it used to. I am working to listen and take more days off as necessary. Working on varying workouts as well.
