Running when over Fifty

I am 50 and run about four times a week. Is that good or do I need to do more?


Answer by Dominique:


Hi there,
Thank you for your running training question.






It depends a bit on where you are in the world, most government health organizations have guidelines along the lines of 30 minutes of moderate exercise 4-6 times per week.

This can be swimming, (brisk) walking, running (at an easy pace), etc.

So, your four days of running per week are great. As stated in the paragraph above, make sure your running is at quite an easy pace. This is especially important if you are relatively untrained.

If you are new to running, make sure you pick up some of my running tips.
