Running! For fun, profit and not dying.
Once again I've decided my level of fitness is crazy for a non smoking guy my age and have taken up running. Problem is I'm not just slightly out of shape I am crazy unfit. You wouldn't know it to look at me because I'm not overweight but 10 minutes of running is enough to put me out of action for 3 days, and that's how it usually goes down. I start running, pull every muscle in my body then spend the next three days feeling like someone has worked me over with a bat. By the time I've recovered from the first days running whatever small spark of enthusiasm I've worked up for the whole affair is gone and I go back to accepting my horrible unfitness.
I need help and lots of it, my last run a few days ago left me feeling like I was going to die for a half hour after I came back. Todays run wasn't nearly as bad but only because I probably ran less than a half mile. Does anyone have any advice for getting through this starting out phase? Are there stretches I could be doing before or after? What sort of realistic goals can I set for myself distance wise right now? Any other helpful advice?
No advice is too basic or obvious here, I am a complete running noob.
