Do I weigh too much to jog?

Postby Cac33 » Wed Apr 02, 2008 12:50 pm

This may seem like a silly question but I weigh 101 kilos, is that too much weight to start jogging? Will it put too much pressure on my joints (mainly ankles & knees)?

I was thinking about trying jogging, I know I'm not fit enough to do it for long but I was planing on trying jogging for say 50m then walk 50m then jog 50m etc.

Please let me know your thoughts

My answer is NO !!!!!!!!!!

I was jogging at 180+kgs .... that was doing the c25k programme ! I did however listen to my body, take notice of the signs and document them, so that you can keep on track of it :)

I haven't gone back to it as I been lazy :oops:

Thanks Helen! I read your post & said to myself well if you can do it when you were 180kg then I can do it too & went & put my shoes on straight away.

It wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be but boy did I get puffed out! I did 4kms in 35mins, not sure if its good or not but I have a starting point now. Wasn't all flat either had a few hills in there too. Quite impressed with myself for just getting out there & doing it!

Nope - I just did the Melbourne Run4Kids which is 14.2 km's and I'm still 40+ kilos overweight. Sure its tougher on the body when your carrying more weight but just take it slow, have fun and enjoy yourself. Also focus on stretching and warm ups and cool downs.
