They're all too fast in the other thread!
Will do. I struggle to run on treadmills also. I always think I'll go flying off the back.
A short 3 miler for me this evening. I hate running in the wind, worst kind of weather for me. Good news though, no niggles from ankle.
Please wind go away for run tomorrow evening
For how long you've been running I'd expect you to walk a fair bit. Have a look at the training tab on the home page here as that's got 10k plans or alternatively google 10k run/walk plans & that will hopefully give you an idea on how to build on what you've done so far.
Don't worry about finishing last. It's happened to me twice before and the cheer I got was bigger than the winners! I'm not the best one regarding warming up as I just do some stretches first. I'd google warm ups and see what comes up. The one thing you will find about this forum is that people will always give a lot of advice and it's the case of trial & error in working out what works for you & what doesn't.

Cheers I can get to about 7k then I feel like lead I'm at 57 minutes for the 10k so if I could make the whole thing with out walking I'm hoping I could break 55 mins Any tips on the best way to warm up? Any help would be appreciated Just don't want to finish last lol
Its all about digging deep Mike ..... next time you hit the 7k mark .......ask yourself ..... 'what would Jesus do?'
Apart from the serious guys everyone was really friendly
Yeah sorry about that, I cna be a real a..ehole on raceday.
Michael well done on your time. I suggest that you now increase your long slow run (emphasis on the slow) to build on stamina/endurance and as you are new to running you will find that your times will naturally tumble. Once you are able to run 20miles or so over the course of the week then the general consesus is that you then introduce speed work - however you need to have a good base to start with.
Daveo sorry to hear about your leg especially as things looked to be improving
David 'ask yourself what would Jesus do'
Well done. Sounds like you need to build on endurance.
I know that's the usual guide to when to start speed work however I start speed work once I'm up to 10 miles per week. I know I'm more built for shorter distances.
Not sure what is happening to my posts as it keeps missing half of it....
David your comment ^^^^^ made me giggle!
12.6 miles completed today in 1hr 50 mins in awful weather driving rain/sleet/hailstones. Taper week for me this week in preparation for Brighton HM next Sunday. Am really hoping that the weather is slightly kinder as may have to rethink my finishing goal time.
Speed work I avoid like the plague and I am currently running about 30 miles per week - I can manage tempo running, however really need to start on interval training, I am not sure why I can't get my head round it but I think its the thought of it more then anything else.
Right after next weekend, I am going to start introducing intervals into my training. I have said it out loud now so will have to do it !
We sound like complete opposites !
been a while , trust everybody is training hard and that everybody is well , i could go back and read but i thought id ask instead , what your next major run ??
