Back to walking after running

Hi, I'm fairly new to the forum. I've been doing the c25k running program til the end of week 5, but now my knee is protesting too much at the longer runs, so I'm trying walking for awhile to see how it works out.

Mostly treadmill due to my schedule at work and shorter daylength, etc. but did about 2.5 miles this morning. Oddly enough, my knee feels fairly ok after it, but I could feel the effects more in my hip. Go figure.

At the age of 58, my body never seems to do what I want it to do!

Hi Islander. I had to give up jogging to save my knees but find quick walking is keeping me fit and healthy. Good for you on the 2.5 miles. Log in here with us and we will keep each other on track. Glad you are here with us!

I hope walk away the pounds will count in the beginning. I have a sore hip joint and a bad knee cap, so I have to re-start really gently. So I started out with a one mile walk.

Walk away the pounds is great Rose1. We like any kind of exercise here! Hope your hip/knee heal up quickly.

Lynn -I can do an 18 minute mile but it is a real challenge for me. I'm usually at 19 minutes, 21 if I take the dog along and she is a great walker! It's all good - I just want to keep my joints moving, carry my weights, and get my heart rate up a bit. When I used to jog I did 14 minute miles - I was a very slow jogger lol but it still killed my old knees.

Plus 4 for me this morning - got up an hour early as DH had to go into work early so got in an extra mile before work.

Happy New Year to everyone! Nice to "meet" you, Rose and Islander!

I'm hoping to go on a short stroll around the neighborhood this afternoon. But it was 13 degrees when I got up this morning, and still only 18 now, so I'm waiting until it warms up a bit more! But I did go on a New Years Day hike - my usual 5 mile hike with my husband.

I just wanted to encourage you both, because I feel that walking is very safe, restorative, and rehabilitating exercise. I started walking to treat my piriformis syndrome, and when that flared up this last time (I've had it off and on most of my adult life), I could barely walk, slowly and pitifully, up my street. I bet my first walk was a quarter of a mile, at most! My husband used to run, but knee, ankle, and foot pain forced him to stop. He now hikes and he feels like his joints are getting stronger again. In fact, he has a friend who is having knee surgery due to the exact same kind of pain that he (hubby) used to experience. He feels that he avoided it by walking (in his case, carrying weight. personally, I just carry my self, my iPod, and my water bottle ).

Great job Lynn. I took the dog for a one mile walk after work. It was dark and very cold so we walked fast! I'm off tomorrow so maybe I will head to the park in the daylight but it is still supposed to be below freezing - brrr.

Thanks for the encouragement. I know that walking is the best thing I could do. Starting out really gently and I think running bleachers is probably over for good. I don't think even climbing bleachers is in the near future, but it's time to get moving again.

+5 for me today. Got out in the sunshine! Spent the rest of the day packing away decorations. Up and down the attic steps at least 30 times and crawling in the crawl space. I'm pooped too.

I fit in a very short walk on Thursday night, perhaps 1/2 mile due to time issues.

This morning I did 2 miles on the treadmill.

My knee is still acting up, so I'm taking it slow. Great going everyone!

New to this thread.......

I just walked 2 miles in 30 minutes. Is that good? I felt like I was doing a "brisk" walk. But should I be able to do it in less time? I haven't "walked" for exercise in about 2 years.


January total miles: 4

2 miles in 30 minutes is a good, brisk, exercise pace. Good job Garden.

Rose, Invictus, Islander - wow you guys are already getting a good habit. We will all be healthier by the end of 2013!

Rest day for me today. I have my 3 grand daughters here for the weekend so don't even have time to breathe no less exercise but my heart is so happy to have them here with me.

You don't think 3 grand daughters will give you a workout?
