Rick, eating and drinking is all dependent on the user. When I am just starting off, I breathe extremely hard, can barely clock a 5k, takes about 28 minutes, and will cramp no matter the preparation.
When I in shape, I can run miles at 6:30 pace while eating a pb and j. I never cramp, no matter how much or how little I drink. I can run 3 miles in about 16 minutes flat and I can run under a 5 minute mile and not even be the slightest bit tired.
You want my running start up plan? I use this, first week, do 2
(Or 3, depending on if you think you can do it everyday with a rest day built in) miles a day, for a week. The next week, up it a mile, week after that up it another mile. And
So on until you hit your personal satisfaction.
I know you're on the road a lot. But you can still do cardio no matter where you are. If to cant run, I can tell you what is a close replacement.
I can not preach this enough. Running shoes running shoes running shoes. Don't use an old pair, start fresh. Every type of shoe is different, like a car. Every person has there own preferences. I prefer Asics, but I've tried misunto and other brands. Each shoe is completely different.
Don't wear your running shoes for anything but running. There meant to run, not run walk, get in mud, etc. would you dd a pure drag car?
Any question just shoot me a pm.
