"I'm trying to lose weight, so I signed up for a 5k. Is this a good idea?"
Before you commit to a 5k or half marathon… ask yourself the following:
Do you strength train regularly and have enough muscle development to support repetitive, high impact stress on your joints?
Do you have a ballpark awareness of how many calories and macronutrients you consume daily so you know how to regulate the inevitable increase in hunger that will occur from running?
Have you built up high daily N.E.A.T. like walking before increasing the intensity to running?
Do you regularly foam roll + do mobility work before starting a running routine to ensure minimal injury + increased blood flow to all body tissue?
Are you consuming sufficient protein + complex carbs during the day to fuel your running properly + avoid muscle tissue breakdown?
Do you have your overall stress in check + regularly practice resiliency techniques so that your body doesn’t become inflamed from excess cortisol created by more cardio?
Now, this might seem contradictory information after I (Lisa) recently shared my journey with starting a running routine earlier this year (which I am still doing, by the way!).
The truth is, my answer was a resounding YES to all of the above before I started increasing my cardio.
We understand why people turn to running when they want to lose weight or focus on overall health. Running is free, it doesn’t require higher knowledge of lifting weights, and it’s easier to do for most people than asses or change their food intake.
But we’ve seen this approach backfire all too often.
Our clients see the best results by focusing on the following in this order of importance:
Walk / high daily N.E.A.T. (non-exercise activity thermogenesis - or all the calories you burn outside of your actual workout)
Progressive strength training
Stress management / nervous system regulation
Running and other forms of cardio in the minimal effective dose only as desired / needed.
Make sure to attend the workshop on Friday if you want to learn more about how to properly fuel for running, long bike rides, triathlons, etc. if you're an endurance athlete (and yes, you're an athlete if you're exercising on purpose!).
