farflight Posted November 21, 2018 Report Share Posted November 21, 2018 Good morning scouts and runners! Never made a running post, but I started hitting the pavement...not with my fists anymore...lesson learned. Anyhoo...trying to be a warrior with a brain, I figured I'd ask y'all some questions that've been percolating in my head. Please note, I'm not training for a marathon, 10k, or even 5k. I'm running to get some activity in on my non-lifting days and to incorporate some steady state cardio. On a good week I might get 2 runs/jogs in. So I'm not going for anything superhuman. Granted, I am a large dude (6'2 ~200-210 lbs). I tend to do miles between 8 - 9 minutes pace. 1) is 'flatfoot' running bad for the knees/back as some people have told me (cause it feels really comfortable to me) 2) is running on sidewalk (especially in 'barefoot' shoes) killing my joints long term (cause it doesn't feel bad after the small bit of running I've done) 3) am I really over thinking this and just need to keep running (since I maybe run 2-3 times a week tops and under 5 miles each time at the moment) 4) if I see a treasure goblin on a run, do I follow him? Thank you for the wisdoms and insights Quote Fitbit username: farflight (would love to have more people on there) Getting life in order is a challenge worth doing. Happiness is the journey, not the destination (took me forever to learn that) Link to comment
