exercise response or plateau?

I was wondering does anyone have success for a while in walking or jogging say reaching up to four miles, walking or jogging, and then find no matter how much you do and how many days you allow for recovery, you still get sore when you cover the distance you trained up to, and should be used to it by now?

I found that once I reach 3 1/2 miles to four miles depending on the intensity of the terrain the more hilly the more likly only to do the 3 and 1/2, miles walking, (sometimes I throw jogging in there to liven things up, but not every time I walk) fairly flat I can do four miles, but even tho I should be used to it, been walking for years, I still get sore, why is that?

I noticed to that I get tired to when I should be used to it considering I gradually worked up to it, walking, some jogging (twice a week with it) four times a week. shouldn't I have endurance for this distance by now, been doing this distance and walking now regularly for years, for a while there I wasn't walking as much, but I picked it up this past year and should be comfortable at four miles, (covering the same paths over and over) yet I am still coming up sore the next day.

and I can't seem to get past this distance, I try to add a few minutes each week and it seems that is my limit, could I be a low responder or could it be maybe some kind of muscle problem (my cardio and endurance in that areas seems to be fine, it is the soreness that is the problem in my legs ankles and such, tho I do get fatigued a little sometimes but not always, could be falling blood sugar I sumise/

Re: exercise response or plateau?

If I were in your situation I would evaluate my nutritional intake. sounds like you are making increased demands on your body. Perhaps you are not having enough carbs and protein.
