Lurking no more!
Hi and welcome
regarding the sickness......it could just be coincidence eg a bug or it could have been connected to when you had you previous meals....eg too much food or too little.......these things are very individual and so a bit of trial and error.......
your plan seems fine as long as you don't push the long run too much...don't do it too fast and as said above .listen to your body
Suzie........don't confuse the ability to write lots of rubbish on this site with being able to run
I have only been running 6 years and doing triathlon the last 3.........I love the feeling after the runs............I tend to do longer races as i find I'm not built for speed but have the stamina and mental ability to go long...got a 47 miler in the beacons coming up in November...
so I have run lots of miles and I am still slowly running faster but will never be fast
not sure about the balls of the feet .I can remember a thread about it once.I will see if I can remember which one
Suzie - Hi and welcome to the forum you sound abit like me to be honest, I started seriously running about 4 months ago. I have entered a couple of 5K races and one 10K race so far, and finding it very addictive. I am female (Booey is my nicname and doesnt really give anything away) 43 years old and 5'3 tall and probably run about the speed you do
I have made sure I listened to the advice people have given me on here, don't try and do to much to soon, just enjoy it and make sure I take rest days
I am about to join my local running club this week and am alittle nervous that I will just slow them down but hey I gotta start somewhere and sure they will help me progress
welcome suzieQ,...just wanted to echo seren really, yep, your plan looks fine, dont do too much too soon. As for your feet,try "flexitol, Heel Balm"....its good stuff. (you can get it in Boots!)
Hi silvertop.....its a great way to keep running fresh and interesting......running from different starting points
Suzie....sensible to wait with the speed work until after the Great South......more sensible to get the legs used to running more mileage.........too mant people go into the speed work too soon..........and if you haven't learned to recognise the warning signs it can lead to injuries.......
I tend to avoid speedwork ( personal choice) but do the 5k Parkruns on a saturday which I count as my speed work...........that really helps my speed pick up a bit......
after the great south might be worth seeing if they are any in your area..........infact I would advise those to anyone taking up running............free and open to all abilities and help you focus on a pace you would never achieve on your own
Silver - I have to say that my hubby is a tad jealous about my weight loss since I started its just little comments I pick up on. He windsurfs and is pretty fit to be honest but has let a few pounds creep on since we first met, as we both had until now
When I first started seriously running a few months ago I entered the Silverstone HM next March to give me a goal to work towards, I am still pooping myself that I might not be capable haha
Its my first winter running also its my b/day the end of Oct when the clocks alter so hubby is buying me all my hi-viz gear also joining a running club so I can run with others
