    I am 55 years old and I’m working out at bootcamp. We have to run sometimes up to 5 to 7 k, I’m a slow runner but when I run I feel like I’m hittting the concreat hard. and my breath it feel like my lungs are burning. I’m trying but I’m having trouble keeping up with everyone else.

    Do you know what I’m doing wrong. I try and keep my shoulders relaxed and my hands are moving. But I feel running in my worst part.. I want to get better..

    Very interesting and knowledgeable. I am sure i have made one of these mistakes. I have started to do longer runs but in a three week cycle so far, 15 k, 16.5 and 17.20 yesterday. My mistake is that i was training my son for 5 k Santa Shuffle which occurred on Saturday (we did it in 25 min). After my long run last weekend and my recovery run of 7 k two days after, he asked me to take him running, so I went out for a 5.5 k run with him in the evening. I also did some leg work in the am after my recovery run. My right inner thigh-groin area started to hurt on my run down a bridge and i had to walk about 1 km home. After a day rest it was fine but yesterday, did it ever hurt. Again it is better today. I am not sure what my weak link is in terms of exercise to build those weak muscles. Thank you for all your wonderful read and advise.

    Hi Jenny,
    Just discovered your site and listening to your audio on long run mistakes, thanks so much.
    I am 61 years young, I ran as a teenager and didn’t pick it up again until 8 years ago. I have got to the stage where I have been running about 2 half marathons a year, and really, really want to do a marathon.
    Have experienced many of the pitfalls you described and have finally learned to listen to my body and tell my mind to ‘just settle down’.
    Can you help me to organize a training plan for the marathon?
    I have been traveling the world for 4 months with very little running and now back home working my way back into my running.
    At present I’m running (jogging really) every second day for 50 mins, so all in all feeling quite happy with my progress, even with so much time off I find I haven’t lost too much fitness.
    DO hope you can advise me. Many thanks, Judy
