I started jogging for the first time ever in my life, and I’ve been going strong for over a month now. I can’t jog a full mile without stopping.. it’s usually .8 and I am slow as molasses.
I usually do about 2 miles MWF, but can’t seem to cut down my time anymore or keep going. After that .8 mile I give all I can, and usually am having sharp pains in my chest, breathing pretty heavily ect. if I try too hard.
I have pretty bad feet, so I need to wear orthodics, I don’t know if I should get fitted for shoes? I would then just have to screw them up with my bulky ones (I have an extremely high arch and a twisted front part of my foot) Would the new shoes help with the pain? (I’m getting ankle pain, and some back pain)
I’m also not losing any weight, is there anything else (for free) that I could do to up my fitness more?
My ultimate goal would love to be able to run in some type of race, by my pathetic ability to keep going makes me embarassed to even try.
Any thoughts? Opinions?
