Just this morning I read on one of the forums a question from an already-active new runner who was ramping up their running time. “Can I progress more quickly through the program since I’ve been active prior to starting running?” Of course my advice was “Sure you can. But the risk of getting injured goes up.”
I’ve been increasing my running time since the feet are responding so well to the ASTYM treatments and running (finally!) just feels great! My anal-retentive brain has caused me to create for the umpteenth time a training log in Excel so I can look quantitatively at my ramp up and see how fast it is progressing. I so badly want to put bigger numbers in some of those cells – but the equations tell me I’m risking doing TMTS (Too Much Too Soon) if I do so.
Holy smokes it’s hard to hold back…………………
