Wow that was a great time in those conditions 7th, well done!. Glad the feet held up OK.

I also set a PB (never run more than 10K before) of 2:22:02.

Feel OK today but was ruined last night.

Well done you guys !!

Will try and post a time for a 10k this weekend although it will be on the easy side,as i have not entered any races yet. Seem to have a bit of fear regarding races,which i did not have when i ran in my younger days.

Hope everyone is well.

Hello everyone,hope all well, progressing nicely with a 6.3 mile run this morning in 1 hour 2 minutes so just over the hour mark for 10k by a minute or so. Only slight niggle was a pain in the hip near the end,so quite pleased.

Long time no see ... I forgot about this thread with all this other "life" stuff happening! I ran my first 10k last summer in 49:31. I then ran another one in November in 48:45 (same course). And after laughing at the suggesting of running further I'm now entered into my first half marathon!! Still saying a big no to a marathon ...  

I also entered into the world of Garmin at christmas and I love my little watch. No more running with the clunky phone.

Well Done on the times Emse,i too have entered a half-marathon,albeit it is a long way off,The Great Scottish Run in Glasgow on October 5th,plenty time i hope to increase mileage and distance and have a few 10k races over the summer,looking forward to the challenge.

Esme the world of garmin , I got one for a belated Xmas present a week before the silverstone half marathon and it's a great piece of kit , well worth getting if you don't already have one

Yeah I do love it although I just realised that if you run approximately a race distance & stop your watch it assumes that you have crossed the finish line in a real race and takes that as your time. So I've been frustrated at my inability to clock under 2hrs for my training half but it's because I stop the watch at dead on 2hrs (and a tiny bit further than HM distance!!!) d'oh.

Well done guys.

I've not been getting any notifications from this thread for ages & thought I'd check it out now hubby has done his marathon in the hope that it gives me a lift while my body is healing from run/walking his long runs with him.  They have caused lots of problems with my knees so much so that I've struggled to walk the day after.

Hm4 , I hope you get better soon , dont get to frustrated

7th skip,

Thanks.  I've not really ran for about 2 weeks & have concentrated on stretching as my hip has also been affected.  I'm going to try a run this afternoon.  I want to get myself sorted for my first race of the year which is going to be the 2.5 mile Hook race.

hook run 2,5 , nice little run , after missing it for the last 2 years i think I have decided that this year I will be running the 6 mile hook run , and being my local run I have no excuse really 

well good luck stretch well , and if you see me say hello
