I don't know what it is with me and running around, but I absolutely suck at it. Jogging a mile at a leisurely pace kills me, and that's on flat terrain.
It's not really because I get winded or out of breath - my legs just start hurting like a bitch. It looks like it's from hitting the pavement. I can do 7-8km on a bike in hilly terrain without any problem. I can walk that too easily, perhaps more. But if I start running or jogging, eventually my legs give out and I have to stop, and I'm not even tired.
I don't know if it's a question of technique, physiology, leg strength, bad shoes (I got good running shoes once though and my feet still died), but I'd really like to get better at running, except having my feet die after a hundred meters makes it hard to appreciate running. My cardio is not that great to begin with and I'd like to improve it.
So I thought maybe I could get some jogging technique pointers first to see if it makes any difference. Perhaps people who have been in the same boat can tell me something that would make a difference. I don't even know what I'm looking for. Just leaving that here in case.
