I have been jogging for almost more than couple of months now. I use to run on and of but I guess I was not too fit so could not run for more than 5 mins. This time I decided that I would not give up and would build a stamina good enough to run a 10k.
The problem I face is that I am not able to jog daily. I feel soreness in my legs (shin and calf muscles) if I try and I am not able to continue for more than 2-3 mins. But if I run on alternate days,I feel light soreness for the first few 100 meters and then it goes away.
I can run for about 25-27 mins and I run for about near 3 kilometers. I know I don't try to push too hard, I guess I do follow the 10% rule. I do stretch before and after jogging.
I am sure I am doing something wrong cause I have read that other people can run for 5-10 kilometers with ease daily.
The other problem I face is not being able to add much to stamina as I am progressing very slowly due to loss of breath. I try to breathe properly though.
I am a male, 68kg wt and 5'7''. I am from India. I have read people talking about getting proper shoes from some specialized store for running. I have not seen one around. So, I am not sure if I use right shoes. But I guess they are comfortable. Also, I run in a park with hard surface, not concrete, but bricks fitted together. I do have an option to go to another one with concrete surface.
So, my questions is, what should I do to be able to run daily as I really want to build stamina. In 2 months, 3km is a bit of disappointment. :(
Thanks for taking time to read this. It might be a duplicate question, but I could not find if the same issue was addressed in any other question.
