March: (Week 1 & 2 - 4 x Interval Hills and flats, 1 x swimming, 1 PT Workout, 1 rest day. (Week 3 - 4 x interval Hills & flats, 1 x swimming, 1 PT workout, 1 rest day)

Thanks Ian, I see you are starting to train for a 5K as well.
How are you finding it? any tips.
I am heading off to the park in an hour or so to do a couple of laps walking.
I have just had a look at the beginners schedule, looks sound, what week are you onto now?
What do you find is good to run in? Hubby bought me some new trainers for Christmas and they really seem to make a difference.
Totally agree about overdoing it - I had a rest day yesterday, but I do it often do too much, but then recover and get back in there!, never seriously hurt myself though, always stop if niggles or pains.
I just did a couple of hills in local park. was planning to do three, but got a bit lightheaded, so stopped for a banana - don't think I ate enough before (diabetic). Ha Ho!, lesson learnt for next time.
Week 1, thats so exciting, the beginning there is so much to look forward to with new challenges and no formed misconceptions.
My new trainers are ascics and I was recommended to get a gait analysis, (the way you run), they were were right as it does make a difference and the gel in the heal and toe helps due to my size. There may be some in the sales at the moment, but def go to a specialist running shop.
Let me know how your search goes and your run tomorrow.
I have a pt session with my friend tomorrow, always great fun! (ex royal marine) and does commando style training.
pretty in pink.
Not a clue about running with diabetes!
Any tips and advice would be welcome. I am type 2 on tablets. Bloods are controlled well, although following a workout with friend (PT) I have to keep an eye on my bloods for upto 48 hours to keep them up.
Any advice, welcome and most gratefully recieved - are you type one or two.
pretty in pink.
Fingers crossed for good weather. If weather is bad, you were just meant to have that day as a rest!

Just back from Day 1 of RW training Schedule - Run 1 Min Walk 90secs 8 Times. Went to local park at the top of my street. Bit snowy but pleased with the way it went. Started to feel it a bit at rep 6 but finished OK.
Feel good now though!
Rest tomorrow and back out Weds (although running in the dark could be fun as I'l have to go out at night! - back at work tomorrow!)
That is so cool - even in the snow. You must be so pleased with yourself.
What kind of stretching did you do?
Running in the dark is cool, I would check the route first as I am likely to fall into a ditch or bump into a tree, but then thats me!!
Just had a session in the gym and wlll be doing a walk tomorrow myself.
Good luck and let me know how Wednesday goes?
Yes I'm quite pleased.
Did some of the stretches in RW but it was abit random so now worked out a planned stretching for the end of each run using their stretches.
Forecast not looking good but all being well will be out on Wednesday.
If you cant get to run tomorrow's walk should be better than nothing9unless you've been out for a run today of course!)
All the best - keep on running!
Have been told cant run for a couple of months so wont be signing on this thread again - good luck with your 5k.
best of luck
Oh dear - sorry to hear that.
Good luck for the future and all the best.
